[accell go.mobile] Re: [PrePaidCellPhones] Re: Best phone coverage

Hi Gail -
I really don't know too much about the diff between CDMA and GSM.  Wish someone else would chime in. But....
I don't think it will matter what type phone you have.  Coverage and signal strength all depend on the network you are on.  If you are on the T-Mobile network you'll have service where ever T-mobile coverage reaches, for instance.  I have a Boost Mobile prepaid phone which uses the Sprint-Nextel network. I don't even remember off-hand if my phone is CDMA or GSM.  So, if you are going to buy a phone just look up what network it uses and then check their coverage maps.  (And like I said, try to buy it at a store that will let you test it out for a few days).

Good luck,
Donk

Thank you for your response Don.  Because we live in a (I think it's  called GSM area) but travel frequently to a CDMA area where our  cottage is located, which is the best type phone to buy?  Will a CDMA  phone work in our home area or vice versa? Thank you for  your help. GailB  --- In PrePaidCellPhones@yahoogroups.com, Donk <d.knieriem@...> wrote:   
Well, the truth is you'll never know for 'sure' about the coverage      
until    
you try the phone for a few days in the areas you most ofter use      
the    
phone. I'm assuming you're buying a pre-paid phone?  First check      
the    
carriers coverage map, then check here to see if any dead-zones      
have    
been reported in your specific area (      
http://www.deadcellzones.com/ ),    
and then buy the phone from a store that will let you return it      
(usually    
like 15 to 30 days - like WalMart, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.).      
Ask    
about their return policy.  Most all phones have nationwide roaming - but be sure to ask anyhow. Good luck, Donk  Gail wrote:     
Hi: I live in Wisconsin.  I don't use the cell phone for texting,        
just    
voice and not too much of that.  Can anyone point me to the        
carrier    
with the best voice coverage in Wisconsin?  We also travel to        
Arizona    
in the winter and I would like the have nationwide roaming        
included and    
again good coverage.  The coverage maps are so vague that I        
thought I'd    
ask here.  I also would like to carry over my minutes, so the T-       
Mobile    
1000 minutes for $100 for a year is appealing.  I'm just        
concerned    
about the coverage. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Gail Bensing Wisconsin
