I live in the hills so the only reason I have cingular is b/c I get great signal up here and basically anywhere I am. I was formally with Tmobile and ATT. Tmobile was great b/c when we went to Europe it was a simple $30-$40 SIM card swap and I could call local for no extra charge and others could call me with my number from home at no charge. ATT turned into Cingular and when we finished just a few weeks ago they signed us under a Cingular contract.

My dad's current company has NEXTEL but his former company provided Verizon service. Let me say Verizon doesn't give Cingular a run for it's money, not even a little bit. The service sucks up here, the phones are cheap looking, and most of all they are not too nice over here. However, last Friday when playing golf with a friend my cell lost all reception yet his had full bars...

I have both a Cingular Wireless Motorola V400 and this new little black one I got for $150 b/c I broke the screen on my V400. I like it just as much.

Thanks,

Matt

I don't have a phone anymore. I lost it in Bratislava earlier this month and im still sorting out the insurance with Vodafone.

To add insult to injury, I was mugged at 3am this morning in Brighton by two black guys and they took my pay-as-you-go temporary phone I bought as a stop gap measure.

So yep, that's two phones stolen from me in one month oh and plus the £400 these cunts made me take out from a cash machine.

Very pissed off this morning.

I have Verizon. Just switched over from Sprint which BTW stinks reception wise!!!!!! So far Verizon works perfectly everywhere I go  biggrin 
I have just a cheap little 19.99 flip phone, VX3200 I think, and couldn't be happier with it. With Sprint I had the camera phone and all kinds of games and downloads that racked up my bill and I never used them. Not to mention the camera pictures stunk as far as quality. So now for me just the basic phone with limited bells and whistles is all I really need. That Razor phone sure is pretty though  scratchchin

Motorola V-60......dual mode for analog and digital and is tough as all getout without having to get on of the rubberized phones that wont fit in your pocket.

Verizon service because it seems to be the best coverage.

Bought a couple of nextels for the company guys to communicate with customers and free incoming calls.

PilotJmartin, did you find yourself having problems with that phone? I had that phone and I simply returned it on the 30th day. For one the Bluetooth thing went outside of your ear instead of inside which I don't like and for what I paid it was not at all worth it. It was also somewhat confusing to work with. Do you have any of the same problems?

I found it much like the V600 that I had, Its just eye candy really, there is nothing special about this phone. I really think Motorola should have made this phone with EDGE instead of GPRS, and it doesnt have the image recorder that the V551 has. I will probably only have it until May, then I will get something else. But I can see what your saying, the Headset feels kind of sloppy on the ear too, a stiff breeze might blow it off.

Exactly, I felt as if I was paying for a V600. There was nothing special to the phone, and it was even ugly until you opened it up. Motorola really screwed up on this one.

I have a Samsung SCH-a530.


I am on the Verizon network. The network is phenomenal and the plan is perfect.

But the phones SUUUUUUCK.

What is it with this flip phone craze? The only cool flip phone out there is the new Motorola Razor. Phones in Europe are much cooler and I like the sim card concept like T-Mobile and Cingular have. My contract is up next February (yep still another 11 months), maybe I'll switch to T-Mobile. (Any Verizon people reading this!?!?)

Pain? What pain? I need a phone, and the possibility to send a text mesage every now and then, so I don't need a better phone at the moment.  Smile

I have the LG VX7000 with Verizon. All I have to say is ... The phone is larger, but it's awesome, and the coverage is great. Verizon has got the best plans and reception that I have seen.

The phone plays MP3's and the battery life is great (can go 5 or so days without recharging)

Hello All,

I still have my trusty pay-as-you-go Nokia 3210 (I got it off my brother 3rd-hand 3 years ago). Well, trusty until recently when I've been dropping it a bit too often, such that it randomly turns itself on and off, the display smudges occasionally, some keys don't work properly, and something rattles inside (i.e. its damn well not supposed to). Personally, I'm interested to see how long I can keep it going for.

Myt332 - I feel your pain! The reason I have this one now is that 3 years ago some bastards mugged me (and my old Motorola T180) on the tube in London (and it was barely past 23.00 hrs)! Oh, and they got some money off of me as well, though at least my bank later refunded me, along with a letter from the police saying they'd arrested the wankers (caught on cctv that was apparently working)!

Still not worth the trouble of replacing all those numbers though!  Sad

I've got a Motorola V600, and it looks like we all have the same view on it. This is my replacement phone as they couldn't fix my previous one, and I haven't even had the contract a year. It looks like the same problem is starting on this phone as well, a buzzing noise whilst on a call. Im looking for a new phone when my contract ends, at the end of April, any suggestions?

You can do that with ATT and Cingular too, they are both GSM carriers. All you need to do is get your phone unlocked...

I have a V600 and Cingular (Unlocked ATT phone) and I love it. Bought it for $110 brand new off my buddy and it does it job good and i have no problems with it. The bluetooth is amazing IMO.

I think my LG is on its last legs. The ringer, when on high, is barely above a whisper. There are is a crack on the screen and two cracks running across the phone. The camera lens is almost obliterated and the phone looks like it's been through a war with all the scratches on it. I have to be careful now as not to snap it in half...seriously. I lost the fucking battery in Stockholm last week, that was a nice $39 replacement when I returned to the states.

Biggles20, UN_B732, it does suck doesn't it, oh well. The police are now aware of it all.

I now have the decision of what phone to get. I got a Nokia 6230 last May which I loved so I was thinking about getting the 6230i when it comes out which is an upgraded version. That or one of the new Nokia 3G handsets.

Decisions, decisions!

Got a Nokia 7250i. Was a bit hesitant about getting another Nokia after the 8310 didn't last very long due to issues with not being able to get enough pressure onto the buttons. However this is an upgraded version of the 7250 hence the i. It has proved flawlessly however is starting to show its age compared to newer models. It will most likley be replaced when my contract expires in November and hopfully I will be able to change over to the newer 3G networks, if they are up and running by then.
