    Apparently, there must be a lot of "dirty talking teenagers" out there
    because Consumer Reports reported as of Feb. 2004 that:

    1) Verizon is "the company, which commands nearly one-fourth of the
    cell-phone market, has consistently topped our Ratings."

    2) Their recommendation? "A good first choice for many people: Verizon"

    3) Service? "Verizon had fewer problems with service overall. It was
    among the best at providing service and having circuits available."

    4) Customer Service? "Verizon customers who had a complaint were more
    likely than other carriers customers to describe the companys response
    as very helpful."

    They reported specifically on 4 aspects of service:

    1) No Service
    2) Dropped Calls
    3) Static
    4) Circuits Full

    Verizon topped the ratings in ALL the cities tested, including:
    ATLANTA; BOSTON; CHICAGO; DALLAS; DENVER; HOUSTON; LOS ANGELES; NEW
    YORK; PHILADELPHIA; SAN FRANCISCO; SEATTLE; and WASHINGTON, DC.

    Personally, I tried several of the carriers in my area - and Verizon was
    the best choice for me. But that's *me*. Your (and everybody else's)
    Mileage May Vary...

    I'm not saying that Verizon doesn't suck for *some* people... but
    Consumer Reports is "based on more than 31,000 responses", and they
    accept NO Advertising - nor do they allow their reports to be USED in
    *any* Advertising.

    Take it for what it's worth... and feel free to cite your own statistics.

    YORK; PHILADELPHIA; SAN FRANCISCO; SEATTLE; and WASHINGTON, DC.

    Personally, I tried several of the carriers in my area - and Verizon was
    the best choice for me. But that's *me*. Your (and everybody else's)
    Mileage May Vary...

    I'm not saying that Verizon doesn't suck for *some* people... but
    Consumer Reports is "based on more than 31,000 responses", and they
    accept NO Advertising - nor do they allow their reports to be USED in
    *any* Advertising.

    Take it for what it's worth... and feel free to cite your own statistics.

    Apparently, there must be a lot of "dirty talking teenagers" out there
    because Consumer Reports reported as of Feb. 2004 that:

    1) Verizon is "the company, which commands nearly one-fourth of the
    cell-phone market, has consistently topped our Ratings."

    2) Their recommendation? "A good first choice for many people: Verizon"

    3) Service? "Verizon had fewer problems with service overall. It was
    among the best at providing service and having circuits available."

    4) Customer Service? "Verizon customers who had a complaint were more
    likely than other carriers customers to describe the companys response
    as very helpful."

    They reported specifically on 4 aspects of service:

    1) No Service
    2) Dropped Calls
    3) Static
    4) Circuits Full

    Verizon topped the ratings in ALL the cities tested, including:
    ATLANTA; BOSTON; CHICAGO; DALLAS; DENVER; HOUSTON; LOS ANGELES; NEW
    YORK; PHILADELPHIA; SAN FRANCISCO; SEATTLE; and WASHINGTON, DC.
