    Is there one particular carrier which has significantly better coverage in the North End of Boise? I currently use Verizon, but I am considering switching to T-Mobile or Cingular.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Do you not have good coverage in that area or are you just wanting to 'switch'? A fellow member 'Fathead' on this forum will be able to answer your question but he is with Verizon and says that GSM coverage in Idaho still has ways to go before it's up to par with CDMA.

    I would also stay with Verizon as compared to those two. CDMA will just have more roaming partners throughout the area. For example, throughout most of the state, if you go with Verizon, you will have an Alltel network to fall back on as a free roam even though Alltel hasn't made it all the way to Boise yet, it appears they are just a little North so that might help you from time to time. But I've got no personal experience there either.

    I have no experience with GSM in north boise, so I can't speak for it or against it. I'd recommend finding someone who has GSM and testing it for you.

    Thanks for the feedback. I was in North End over the weekend and had 1 bar at my house. Might be worth a try with Cingular for a couple of weeks???

    Thanks again!

    It's always a good idea to utilize the 15 day trial, no matter who you go with because that's really the only way to know who will give you the best coverage in the areas that you'll be. If you go for the trial with somebody else you might get five bars at your home and you might get no service. There's really no way to know unless somebody you know with that provider has been at your home recently. Good luck.
