    I was in the exact boat your are in. I used Verizon for about three
    years or so in the late 90s into 2000. I had a stint with
    Aerial/Voicestream and then moved on too Sprint. I gave Verizon another
    chance this last April and found that they have not upgraded a single
    tower in my area in 4 years! So much for all the billboards claiming,
    "We Check It". Not in Minnesota they don't (but the billboards are
    everywhere)!!!

    I was in the exact boat your are in. I used Verizon for about three
    years or so in the late 90s into 2000. I had a stint with
    Aerial/Voicestream and then moved on too Sprint. I gave Verizon another
    chance this last April and found that they have not upgraded a single
    tower in my area in 4 years! So much for all the billboards claiming,
    "We Check It". Not in Minnesota they don't (but the billboards are
    everywhere)!!!
