I have narrowed my choices for NH/MA/CT coverage to either Verizon or ATT. Since I live in Strafford County NH I cannot get a local number with Verizon. I am told that maybe in November 2004, but most likely not until next spring. I went to a local ATT store and they offered me the 59.99 National GSM plan with additional line for 9.99, 900 anytime minutes, nights starting at 7pm, which is really nice, and they have a nice GSM LG phone (buy one get one free as of tomorrow). The salesperson said he would waive the activation fees (I have it in writing). ATT's map is so similar to Verizon's map I can't tell much of a difference, and I really like the GSM thing. That is the main reason I went with T-Mobile (leaving for too many reasons to list). What do you think? Feedback is much appreciated. By the way, the 30-day trial would really allow me to test the phone out.
