As much as I dislike cell phones, they are useful to have around in an emergency.
We have Cingular, but we have it through Edmond as I don't think we can get a phone around here. It is confusing.

I know that when I visit Allen, my signal is very, very weak to no signal at all in my sister's house. However, in and around Gerty I get a clear signal.

I see spots of no coverage, especially when you get up into the mountains in SE Oklahoma.

Verizon assures me that I will be able to use my # anywhere, no roaming.

They'd have to pay ME to use Cingular, no matter what it's called. My original plan was with Cingular, when they still had SIM cards you could switch from one phone to another. Both of my phones died within a month, and the local office [25 miles away, which might as well be 2,000 if you can't drive] kept insisting I'd have to bring them in for repair or replacement. The last time I talked to one of the local guys, he said he didn't have time for me, he had REAL customers waiting for him! And for four months I'd been sending them REAL money to pay for the service I never got to use, and - silly me - I thought that made ME a real customer, too!

Hmmmmm.....
I'd think that in flatlands like OK that cell phones would be good everywhere?
Guess I stand corrected.
