I've had good luck with Verizon. I travel around the country quite a bit and I've always had good reception with Verizon. No complaints at all.

Verizon here.........only one dropped signal (Rye, New Hampsire - seacoast). Never, ever have had a problem otherwise....and I've been all over the country, big cities, small towns, boonies, etc.

I have had Verizon since the late 80's. It was GTE, back then. It wasn't the greatest when it was analog, but after going to digital, I have no complaints. I use my cell far more than the land line. I'll stick with them!!!!!

I use to have Verizon and had nothing but problems with them. As soon as my contract was up, I switched over to Sprint and I love it. I've had it for 6 months now, and no problems. My bill for the month is usually around $50.00. I get 300 minutes per month for the daytime, free long distance ( no matter the time I call), free night and weekends. I also have the PCS to PCS ( $5.00 per month) , and I can talk to any one who has this same service without any more charges. My husband has a Sprint phone and we talked over 1,000 minutes last month with no additional charges or used minutes. As far as roaming, I haven't experienced it yet, and my husband and I travel alot. I went to Vegas from Michigan, and had service all the way there. It was nice too cuz my kids were able to call me, and it was a local call for them, and it was free for me cuz it was the weekend. Oh yeah, I also have added long distance to Canada which is 3.00 more a month, and they charge me 10 cents/minute to canada.

I hope that helps a bit.

I have had about all of them over the years but I think AT&T is the best so far. Nextel is prob second in line. Wardey

I've had AT&T for 7 years with absolutely no complaints. Great customer service, large "home" area (the whole state of Florida) and if I was still traveling up and down the east coast they had a plan where all that too would've been just a "local" call.
My daughter has had Verizon, Sprint and now Singular. She is constantly complaining about poor service, double billing, outages, etc.

BTW what ever you do, just don't get an Ericson phone.
I've had three of them and every one has been trouble. The first one had poor reception, second one died two days out of warrenty and Ericson wouldn't do anything about it "sorry, but it's out of warrenty, you'll have to buy a new one", third one died one week out of warrenty and I got the same story.
I didn't have the second and third Ericson phones in sucession, there was a Nokia in between that was stolen.
