Looks like Cell Phones Service is getting /. pretty hardcore right now (http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=03/08/04/1122252)
... interesting read -- Trying to determine the best service in an area is hard, and
I think varies by phone and expecations. I used to have AT&T in the southeast
and it was miserable, but when I traveled it was normally the 2nd best or "good enough."
Now I'm on T-Mobile, it is "good enough" but I wish it could be better. At least
I don't have sprint. Best news ever is the new law in november that enables
anyone to keep their # across providers, what a deal!
The BEST thing that came out of this thread though, is this wireless
tower locator that lets you map out the towers near you by providers, etc.
Way better than a coverage map...
