    Hi,
    It's funny - I left AT&T because their signal coverage in my area
    (Northern NJ) is pretty poor. I was one of the first phone number
    ports from AT&T to VZW last November. What fun that was... Now, AT&T
    is going to GSM.

    Re the phones, I agree - I want a Bluetooth enabled phone that employs
    Windows CE (Pocket PC); sort of a lower-end PDA with bluetooth and
    Mini Outlook, Word and IE. You can use MS Activesync to connect to any
    Windows-enabled device. I use A/S to connect to my older Compaq PDA,
    and I use Bitpim and DigitalPIMP to connect to my LG 4400. I like the
    4400, but I would like to streamline all this. VZW's comments to me a
    few months ago were to the effect, "We aren't worrying about bluetooth
    yet - we are really trying to get our coverage even better first"
    (groan). Their selection of phones is not great. It kind of jumps
    between teh LG6000 and then to the Kyocera (I think) PDA-like phone.
    And I know there are other phones out there.

    Hi,
    It's funny - I left AT&T because their signal coverage in my area
    (Northern NJ) is pretty poor. I was one of the first phone number
    ports from AT&T to VZW last November. What fun that was... Now, AT&T
    is going to GSM.

    Re the phones, I agree - I want a Bluetooth enabled phone that employs
    Windows CE (Pocket PC); sort of a lower-end PDA with bluetooth and
    Mini Outlook, Word and IE. You can use MS Activesync to connect to any
    Windows-enabled device. I use A/S to connect to my older Compaq PDA,
    and I use Bitpim and DigitalPIMP to connect to my LG 4400. I like the
    4400, but I would like to streamline all this. VZW's comments to me a
    few months ago were to the effect, "We aren't worrying about bluetooth
    yet - we are really trying to get our coverage even better first"
    (groan). Their selection of phones is not great. It kind of jumps
    between teh LG6000 and then to the Kyocera (I think) PDA-like phone.
    And I know there are other phones out there.

    Well, Vonage has a $14.99 / 500 minute plan (local & LD, anytime in US
    & Canada), and calls are 3.9 cents a minute thereafter. And that's a
    full featured line (free caller ID, call waiting, *69, call
    forwarding, voicemail, etc). Not a bad deal, after the initial $29.99
    activation fee.

    My Verizon landline costs me $18.31 (8.61 + 9.70 tax) just for a dial
    tone: no LD, no caller ID, no nothing (and local calls are an extra 9
    cents each). Yes, you read that correctly, the taxes are MORE than
    the cost of the service. Absurd!

    So yeah, I'm switching to Vonage at home.

    And my VZM contract is up, but I haven't decided if I'm staying (I'm
    still waiting for them to release a good phone, like a tri-mode,
    camera-less, bare bones BT phone, but I too am sick of waiting)

    I had both my landline and mobile phone working during the blackout .
