I have no signal at home for AT&T, will Verizon work?

    I guess because I live on first floor of a walk-up in midtown
    mahattan,
    the signal is really weak for my ATT phone, I even tried voicestream
    days ago and it is even worse.
    Now with portable number, I wonder I should try Verizon, any
    suggestion?

    Before you sign up you may want to borrow a friends Verizon phone to see if
    you have better reception in your house. Verizon is 800MhZ in NYC so they
    are going to have better building penetration than the 1900MhZ. I have the
    A530 and get great digital reception.

    Try Verizon for two weeks before switching your number to Verizon - if
    you get better reception in your home and elsewhere, switch; if not,
    and you're happy with AT&T, stick with them.

    I had the same problem in Manhattan a few years ago. I
    returned my ATT in one day and my Sprint phone in 2 days.
    I was about to give up but a VZ rep convinced me to try it,
    pointing out I could return it.

    YES - try it - I rarely have much of a problem and I'm not
    in the best of reception areas.

    But get a phone that is known to get and hold a signal
    since you know you're reception isn't great. I have the VX
    4400 and it's excellent (beat out my Moto 7868 for holding
    a signal in my house). I gather the newer VX 6000 is also
    excellent - but it's only digital. That won't matter in
    most of the country so it depends upon how/where you plan
    to use it.

    I would try it first before doing anything. You CAN (at least I was
    told you can) sign up for Verizon service WITHOUT porting, try it out
    and if the signal and coverage are good, you can then port your old AT&T
    number to your existing Verizon account. This way, if the Verizon
    service ends up being bad, you can just cancel it without the hassle of
    having to "un-port" your number (which I don't think anyone has tried
    yet, so it could be messy).
