I hope so too, for your sake...<br><br>We tried using cell phones as home phones for a good couple of months, but the costs REALLY added up. No one wanted to wait until after 9pm to call! <br><br>Our setup now: VOIP phone through the cable company- $34.95 per month for everything, our 2 cell phones that we pay $70/month for, and an emergency landline (because during the blackout of 2003, cell phones were useless- and of course the VOIP would be out too) for about $23/month...<br><br>Seems like a lot to pay per month for all of those lines combined, but it's too scary to get rid of any one of the three. But, the solution could be to get better quality cell phones and dump the landline in case of another blackout...<br><br>We can't decide!<br><br>[color:white]God speed, mikeb.

verizon is best. well, it's best if you don't want the coolest phone and instead just want the best coverage . . . at least this year. i have a feeling that the newer technologies that other services are using will surpass and exceed verizon some day, but not in the near future.<br><br>i need a new phone so i started looking at other services, but i just can't get away from verizon and keep the great coverage they provide. that's crummy though since they don't have bluetooth phones. darn it.<br><br>"Tribal sovereignty means that, it's sovereign.

Our free minutes start at 7, which is nice. We get more than enough time, I think--but we'll see.<br><br>And Sean, I got so pissed with Verizon that we've dumped them completely. First it was the DSL that kept dying. Then it was the really poor reception on my wife's cell phone. Then it was the land lines that had more snap crackle and pop than a box of rice krispies. So farewell!<br><br>

isn't it funny how we all have different personal experiences that help us to define the value of a particular company. for example, i figured at&t and comcast and switched to sbc yahoo and couldn't be happier. i tried t*mobile and lasted less than a month before going back to verizon for wireless (never tried them for anything else) -- but for wireless only, they can't be beat in this part of michigan. i have direct tv and i wish i didn't have to support direct tv, but they provide my college basketball package and that's a necessity for me. that's what sucks about monopolies. i'd like to fire direct tv, but i have no alternative.<br><br>"Tribal sovereignty means that, it's sovereign.

I think it all just depends on what particular product or service the conglomerates offer that you want. <br><br>Even though the names may be the same, people have different experiences in different parts of the country. Also, if I lived somewhere that the only high-speed internet I could get was SBC Yahoo DSL, I would be the first one to sign up. <br><br>
I've had no qualms about Verizon either- but if you live in a bad area for reception, I guess there's not much to do but try an alternative...<br><br><br>[color:white]God speed, mikeb. Go drive your Boxster in the big Autobahn in the sky...</font color=white>
