ATT problems on Boston's North Shore??

    We just switched to ATT from Worldcom ( I know billing sucks) but the ATT coverage is not living up to what its supposed to be and its worse than the Worldcom coverage (whose service uses the ATT system). We picked up the same phone, Nokia 5265. Has anyone out there had coverage problems in the Hamilton, Ipswich and Manchester area. Is there any chance that the phone could be "bad".

    Thanks for your help!

    I think your reception with AT&T will be similar no matter what phone you use. AT&T in Massachusetts uses the 1900 Mhz frequency band which does not carry as far as the 800 Mhz carriers do, especially in more rural areas. The 800 Mhz carriers, Cingular and Verizon should work best in that area. I have used Cingular in that area, they cover it well.

    If your WorldCom account was indeed on ATT, there is no way your service can be better or worse. It would have to be exactly the same.

    If the phone was dropped the antenna's performance could be impacted.

    I don't have personal knowledge of the areas you are mobile in, but ATT offers a 30-day cancellation period.
