    I'm in San Bernardino County. Granted, SBD is huge place, much of which
    is unpopulated. I do know Sprint's been adding towers so it's possible that
    the coverage was not as good last year. We moved here in July after having
    spent a week here in March of last year.

    Never been in Twentynine Palms. (Ironic - since much of my wife's family
    is either military or retired military. :)

    Good luck with Cingular.

    In this age, "pretty clear" isn't much of a marketing scheme. When did
