    What is the best cell phone service?

    I happen to be with T-Mobile, their customer service and overall minutes offering is good. The best...eh, I dunno.

    So what do you think. Let's get to the bottom of this question.

    Who is best? And why?

    I don't know... I've only had Sprint, and they suck.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    cingular now at&t. I have never had any issues with them. The service is really good and the customer service, the few times I've had to call, has been better than I expected and they were very helpful.

    Re: What is the best cell phone service?

    I have Sprint. I am waiting out my plan. I get a lot of dropped calls, as does everyone in my family (we got a family plan, which... it was sold one way and it played out another) on the hill or off. I get random weird charges for no reason. During the fires no one could call and get through so I ended up with a lot of text messages (I apparently don't have text messages on my plan so $89.00 worth of text messages), but my calls couldn't go through... and a lot of people were having that because almost a million people were evacuated in California and apparently Sprint's whatever couldn't deal with that. I am kinda' pissed by that. Like if the service is down or your company can't handle it and it's an emergency situation, bend the rules to allow people to get a hold of other people... Oh! And for 4 days straight I've gotten calls for them asking if I want to switch my plan because I am paying so much (well it's Sprint's fault!) and if I change I get an additional camera cellphone. I think up here Verizon is the best.

    Re: What is the best cell phone service?

    Sprint is good enough for me.

    I know it's not the best out there, but I've never really had any major problems.

    Plus a few years ago and I used to work for a 3rd party vendor for Sprint so I got a MAJOR Employee discount which I've been able to maintain over the years by simply continually extending my contract.

    Re: What is the best cell phone service?

    I have AT&T, service is the best I've had and my company phone is Verizon. AT&T customer service sucks and is comparable to Time Warner, and Sprint customer service of being blamed for the company's mistake. My mother has T Mobile and the reception is one of the worst I've ever experienced and she has numerous dropped calls.

    AT&T would be great if they could improve their customer service. I haven't had the best service, particularly with their phones. The phones they choose are of pooor quality. Don't get the insurance, it does nothing for you.

    Re: What is the best cell phone service?

    IMO, a lot of the dropped calls complaints are the phones not the company. I had a very inexpensive replacement phone and yes it dropped calls and got poor reception. I upgraded to another phone and the problem went away. I have used cingular/at&t since they were pacific bell. I really liek them and there call center customer service has always been very good for me. Some of the stores, not so much. I prefer not to go in the stores for help.

    I concur on the Sprint end, never go with them, they have a bunch of hidden fees, if you ever want to make any changes they extend your contract and their customer service sucks royally.

    We are both up on our contracts next spring and are switching, when I called to see what deals they could offer someone whose been with them for about 3-4 years, I was told I could only $75.00 off the cost of a new phone and I would HAVE to renew my contract for 2 years.

    So I asked, if my phone breaks tomorrow and I buy another one, I have no choice but to extend my contract. The girl goes, "That's correct Ma'am."



    The only positive thing I can give them is I don't get many dropped calls if at all and if I do, it's usually because I'm on the bridge in the middle of Tampa Bay. Duh, middle of a body of water, even I don't expect to get service.

    I have Verizon and have always been really happy with it. Of course there's an occasional dropped call but this is rather rare. It's really convenient too since soo many people have Verizon, many of my calls are free.

    I have had T-Mobile since they started and have been very happy with them. The only problem I have with them is their limited selection of phones. They are either cheap ugly phones, millions of versions of Razrs, or expensive ok phones.

    We've been pretty happy with Verizon. No real complaints really.

    We won't touch AT&T with a ten foot pole.
