    I am trying to figure out which wireless service to choose and would like to stay with Working Assets, with whom I have my regular long distance service. However, since they are a smaller company (this is the phone company that donates a percentage of their profits to not-for-profits), I don't know how many people might be choosing options other than the big ones--AT&T, Cingular, Verizon, etc.

    If you *don't* use Working Assets and want to chime in on your preferred provider, I'd appreciate the advice.

    I live in the northeast and will be primarily calling the east coast, with some calls to central and western parts of U.S.

    Also, does anyone know anything about a Touch Point phone made by LG? Any opinions on the best phone (Nokia, Motorola, etc.)?

    Thanks!!


    Sorry all-- I am new to this. Might help ifyou know that I live in Philadelphia

    If I understood correctly, you are trying to use your preferred Long Distance provider with your wireless phone. I don't think you can do that. If you use Cingular as your wireless provider, you have to use their long distance. That's why those 10-10-XXX services don't work with cell phones. If your concern is about long distance and not coverage, these days all wireless carriers are emphasizing on their long-distance-included plans where there's no per-minute charge. Cingular is eliminating their regional plans to give way to their National plans where you can call all 50 states for no extra charge. Verizon offers the America's Choice plans where there are no long distance charges to all 50 states. AT&T offers something similar. Nextel, Voicestream and Sprint have done the same. Regardless of your choice, you are locked in with them for long distance. Frankly speaking, I don't really mind who is my long distance provider as long as they don't charge me per minute.

    I think LG are very good phones. Besides, they are cute. They come for both Verizon and Sprint PCS networks (CDMA). Also, Samsung and Kyocera are good for Sprint and Verizon. Nokias and Motorolas work best with AT&T and Cingular (TDMA) and Voicestream (GSM).

    Touchpoint phones are made for the sprint pcs nationwide network

    Checked out Working assets web site and they look like they use the sprint network (which is good). To be honest with you I would go directly with sprint. The only benefit that they have over the contribution is that their night and weekend minutes start at 8 instead of 9 like going directly with sprint.

    I would also like to say that the phones working assets has are single band meaning that if you are off the sprint network you have a piece of useless plastic where sprint will sell mainly dual band phones that can work on or off their network.

    I would consider verizon wireless and Voicestream wireless.

    How do you plan on using the phone?

    Do you travel with the phone?

    If you have any questions ask away

    [WA = Working Assets, NOT this site]

    WA is indeed reselling Sprint PCS (WA LD resells Sprint LD so that isn't a surprise.) WA needs to update their maps, though...the one for Atlanta is VERY out of date. [​IMG]
