    Sorry aiwapro, but do not get Voicestream. There is no service for Voicestream untill you hit Wilks-Barre. Well, I shouldn't say that. When I was at that mall in just outside of York, I got a 2 bar signal from some weird carrier CR-199 or something like that was on the screen. But nowhere else along the highway.

    Verizon seemed to have a good signal there. ATT may be another good choice.

    verizon has great coverage in nj and pennsylvania.

    sprint is great in nj and a lot of the shore points but may be lacking in pennsylvania i cant say from personal experience.

    the other carriers i cant comment on.

    VoiceStream's coverage in York is provided by PCSOne, who they fully acquired last month.

    There is no coverage on the York campus for Voicstream or by PCS One.

    Dobby,

    What York campus are you talking about ? Penn St-York? Is the mall you are referring to the York Galleria on Rt. 30? I know it works along 30 - been there many times. Inside the Galleria as well.

    Yes, Jack, as of 4/1/02 VS owns all of PCSOne. They've already begun using the "get more" in their radio ads. The name change to T-Mobile will be in August.
