I used standard cell service for years, just switched to Nextel, seems like a better fit for the trade. Most contractors use them, and it can help your communication within your network of contacts...My .02

Used Cingular for the past couple of years, using Nextel now. Extremely happy with their service.

Nextel

Nextel 2way & cell service in my area(GA) is terrible. Customer service is not any better.

I have used TracFone, and the service is fine. However, you pre pay for 'units' of time, not minutes. You are charged 3 'units' just for making a call, regardless if it is answered. Also, I'm not convinced a 'unit' is equal to an actual minute of talktime. All in all, for every 60 units of time I purchased for $40, I only got to use the phone about 45 min. That comes out to like $50 an hour!!!! Stay away from TracFone!!

Dont go with Sprint

I have a Sprint phone and i have nothing but trouble. Just signed a contract in December and since then have had to get a new phone, and change my phone number. I get alot of echoing on it. Not my side of the line but the person talking to me. They say it is terrible. I call the customer service roughly every other day to complain. I just get the run around. I am supposed to be recieving a new model phone in the next couple of day so i hope this helps. Check all the companies out first. I wish i had.
Eric

Nextels service in my area is very limited......and this came out of the ladys mouth at the Nextel office..........says there aren't enough towers to do any good. I'm going to switch to Southern Link, their coverage is huge.

Southern Linc

Does anyone else use Southern linc in the southeast. Homer I had used it before when I worked at PAS in Dothan and it worked great then. Many people dont know about southern linc unles they are in southeast. Works the same as Nextel on the Iden system. I had heard somewhere that they might buy or merge with nextel. has anyone heard this. Several of the guys around here are using it. Also Homer over there in Eprise there are other options w/2way radio.
later
