  1. Without giving out you whole address, where in the DC area are you located?
    In DC proper or MD/VA areas?

    Just curious.

  4. Everyone needs and backgrounds will be different. I have Verizon on two
    phones, T-Mobile and SprintPCS and they all have their strengths and
    weaknesses.

    Overall, If I had to pick one out of all of the carriers in Wash DC, it
    would be Verizon.

    Model and type of phone makes a big difference. So far I can get better
    reception than my friends phones with my Startacs,
    RS is usually higher priced than anyone else. I would go online as my first
    choice, and 2nd choice would be to get phone off of e-bay and 3rd choice
    would probably be to go into store and know what you want before you get
    there. ( spend some online time looking at the specs ).

    my .02 anyway..... ;-)
