    But I am thinking that the "new" ATTWS may offer plans that do not charge
    for roaming--just like they did back in the TDMA heyday. I still have a
    Digital One Rate Plan from back when the "real" AT&T operated ATTWS, and I
    am NEVER charged a roaming fee, as long as my phone is on the air within amy
    (very large) home rate area.

    What good is a phone that runs up unanticipated roaming charges? How can
    one possible keep one's sanity when one does not know what the wireless bill
    will be? What if one makes lots of "free" night & weekend calls, only to
    discover that they are billed at a roaming rate?

    I have always valued the freedom from roaming charges as AT&T's most
    important feature--and that is why I have remained on my old TDMA plan. I'm
    not switching until they take my phone out of my cold, dead fingers!

    But if the "new" AT&T offers a roamfree solution, and unlimited n/w, I'd
    switch if only to stay with AT&T. Who the hell wants to go with Cingular,
    anyway?

    If AT&T adds tons of customers, the revenue will help Sprint add additional
    area to their network. And, if gaps in coverage are patched with roaming
    agreements why should I care what carrier handles my call, just as long as
    "THE CALL GOES THROUGH," as the old Bell Atlantic Mobile ads used to say?

    If AT&T adds tons of customers, Sprint will need to spend the money on
    increasing capacity in their existing footprint (which will probably have
    the effect of filling in many of the holes that happen to be there in
    various places -- every carrier has them).

    If AT&T adds tons of customers, Sprint will need to spend the money on
    increasing capacity in their existing footprint (which will probably have

    various places -- every carrier has them).
