Hello,

I am planning to by a mobile phone and subscribe to a cellular service.

What are some of the best mobile phones (makes and models) today? I hear Nokia is best.

Who offers the best, most reliable celluar service? Price is not a problem given that the service is best. AT&T?

Where is a good place to buy find these mobile phone(s) and service(s)?

I know someone who went with Verizon. I think the phone is also made by Verizon. Either the phone is bad or the service is bad because there is heavy static when talking from long distance such as out-of-state (say Las Vegas to Los Angeles).

The reason I am asking this questions is because of the bad experience described above.

Thanks,

Kuphryn

I've got Verizon and never had any problems with their service or phones. So far with them I've had Motorola, Kyocera, and LG phones. Even outside of the digital range I had good quality on it. May have been the towers he was hitting on, or possibly the antenna. Who knows for sure without much further info.

AT&T has THE best coverage around. LG and Nokia have THE best antennas. Nokias are THE most durable and reliable (I don't use toys like cameras and flip phones though)


PS: me my own self and most of my business owning friends have AT&T. I've tried Verizon, same spot, talking: shows full antenna, Verizon Digital area - drops in the middel of talking. AT&T same spot, shows: Roaming, medium antenna, talk as much as you wish, no drops. I'm traveling across country all the time, so I am speaking from my own experience, but then again, I might of had bad phone (paid 250 bux for it though, "best there was" at the time)

..this is very useful and helpful place for information...

Verizon phones are programmed by who knows where they got those peepel. I did not even have a clock on the phone when I was in "No service" areas, the phone just was empty, even alarm clock (which is the MUST in my book) was not functioning, eew.
