3 days into my AT&T trial period and I have some info... Ok so I have been a verizon customer since 1999. I recently have had experiences with them that have made me want to change my carrier. So right now I am in my trial period for AT&T. I had some observations and some questions. Hopefully this may help someone out there and mebe someone can answer my questions as well. I live in PA, and I picked my AT&T phone up on saturday for my test period. I was told to charge the phone up fully before using it at all, and I was told that it should stay turned on the entire time and I could not use it till the AT&T logo appeared on the screen. So I go out to my car and plug it into the car charger and the AT&T logo appears instantly. In Stroudsburg I have full signal, this looks promising, of course the big V (Verizon) has the same signal here as well. There is a difference though, my verizon phone is roaming in S-burg and not roaming at my place of work (bethlehem). The AT&T phone has not gone roaming yet no matter where I have tried it. This is one of my questions by the way why the difference???? Before I use the phone I logged into the AT&T online customer service application, and I verify the plan I wanted was the plan I was signed up for. Well, good thing I checked cuz the girl that handled the paperwork made a boo-boo. I was not in fact signed up for the calling plan I wanted, I was signed up for a different plan. E-gads this won't do. So I call customer service and I get Tim. Tim is a nice fellow and he works through this with me he also fixes the incorrect billing address that was entered because I asked him to check it. He then offers me a plan that does not exist on the attws.com site nor do the stores have this plan available as of yet. He explains to me that it is a plan that they use to try to convert people who are trying the service out. It's called the AT&T National Network Plan. It is roughly the same as the verizon America's Choice Plan. Same coverage same free long distance and competitively priced with said big V plan. I say sure what the hell I'll take that plan instead of the boo-boo plan the girl at the dealer stuck me with. That little speedbump out of the way I then commence to test the phone. The first thing I have to mention is it works at my home. I have never had a cell phone that worked at my home. This is koolness, and I am enamored by the ability to use my weekend minutes and free LD from my house. Verizon has good coverage but they don't have coverage at my house. Can you hear me now NO the phone don't work here. However, AT&T can you hear me now Oh yeah baby. So I go to the movies and try it there and it works there too. And I am now at work and it works great here too. Soo it looks like AT&T has more dense coverage of the areas I go then the big V. And since I'm on the secret agent plan I have the equivelent of Americas choice but a few dollars cheaper. The only reason they offered me this plan by the way is that I told the guy I was a verizon customer trying out their service. So this is where I stand at the moment I have a few more places to test the phone, but I think I may have found my new carrier. The phone I am testing is a regular old Nokia 3360. Nothing special with ungodly features, but wait till they finish the conversion to GSM then I'll have the phone of the gods babee. I guess the only question that I have is why does my Verizon phone roam sometimes even though I am within a 26 mile radius, and this AT&T phone has not roamed yet. And for anyone who lives in this area if you go Cingular the phone will bang off the same towers I use for AT&T as they have a roaming agreement between them, so if I have signal you would too. So far other than the dealer screwing my billing address and my plan choice up (not an AT&T person an authorzed dealer) everything has been fine. The only thing I don't like is that unlike Verizon's online account access with AT&T's you can't see how many minutes you have used. With the big V's you can. This may seem small, but I use that to make sure I don't go over. So thats whats up so far. I will update later if anyone thinks this is helpful.
