Porting from Verizon to ATT

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by James R. Lunsford, Jan 29, 2004.

  1. But I did say that there wasn't much difference "to us". I've had my ATT
    cell service for 16 months now, and she's had her Verizon service for almost
    23. In that time, her service has worked fine for her, and mine has worked
    well for me. I have *no* complaints with my service from ATT. I'm sorry
    there is so much AT bashing going on, but that hasn't been my experience.
    Everywhere we've gone, BOTH of our services have worked extremely well. In
    our home, my ATT service is marginally better than hers, meaning I can
    pretty much make a call from anywhere in the house, and she has to sit in
    the back bathroom and lean against the wall. And in fact, when we went
    camping last year up on the Pennsylvania/Ohio border, my ATT phone had
    service, and hers did not. That's the only place where we've gone where
    both of our phones didn't work, and it was her Verizon phone, not my ATT
    phone. I'm sorry that so many people have had problems with their ATT
    phones, I guess I'm one of the lucky ones, I've never had a problem with the
    service and it works where I need it to. Everyone seems to be missing that
    point, even from my original post. I said that I have ATT, it works well
    for me, my wife has no objection to switching, she knows that my phone works
    well for me and in fact most of the time when we travel together we use my
    phone.

    So I'd have to say Richard, once again, TDMA service works *for us*. There
    may be a huge difference in CDMA and TDMA, but in our experience and day to
    day usage of our phones, it's not apparent to us.

    Don't EVER switch to AT&T GSM or yoiu might change your mind.

    It may be a regional thing. In the SF Bay Area the deterioration has been
    experienced by TDMA users.

    Totally true. I found AT&T's TDMA coverage mediocre but acceptable but
    their GSM coverage is complete crap -- unusable

    Well it kinda depends where you live, don't you think???? ATT GSM is
    terrific here in SE MASS. I get solid coverage all the way from Boston to
    the Cape. Call clarity is better than I had with Verizon AND I get a
    great phone with a battery that lasts nearly 5 days!
