    Forget Fair and Flexible. For 750 minutes it costs $75. You call up
    SprintPCS cancellation and tell them you're about to go to Cingular,
    they'll give you a Retention plan that charges $40/month for 750 minutes.

    Then forget Cingular, none of their GSM phones allows roaming in analog
    coverage, so outside of big cities or major interstates you'd have ZERO
    coverage.

    GSM will be a nightmare if you travel extensively. No GSM phone has
