    I've had Verizon since the Millenium, but now that I can opt out due to the recent V710 settlement I'm looking for the best deal, and was wondering what the word was for best reception in Boston out of Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, Cingular, etc...

    Thanks

    For Best reception , It's VZW & CING.
    For "deals" ... possibly T-mobile or Sprint.

    Try T-Mobile or a SPRINT SERO plan...The SERO plan can't be beat and I'm sure coverage is adequate.

    T-Mobile (Deutsche Telekom)
    Best reception: T-Mobile

    Everywhere in the Boston area where I've taken my T-Mobile phones, past and present, they have all displayed full signal (all 4 bars (Nokia 6101) or all 7 bars (Nokia 3595/6010/6800)).

    (I cannot say the same regarding Verizon. My Verizon Nokia 2128i displays 2-3 bars tops (out of 7), if the phone is not immediately next to a Verizon cellsite in most areas. The only place where the Verizon phone displayed full signal in the Boston area without any visible Verizon cellsites, was in Cambridge along Memorial Drive.)

    What about Coverage in Boston's New Multi Billion Tunnel?

    I have yet to travel through the new tunnels, so I do not know how good or bad the signals are.

    My brother had TM, lost reception all the time in the Natick/Wellesley area on Rte. 9.

    He has had Sprint for the last 2 years. Just signed up for another 2 after CSR finally fixed his phone upgrade problems (changed ESN/phone when orig was washed and then changed back when dried out). Sprint seems to reset your phone upgrade status when you change ESNs, even if it's an old phone you still had (or one you purchased on ebay, ie non subsidized) and not the date you purchased the last phone through them [Sprint].

    I have had Verizon for the last 9+ years and drive Ma to NJ and even down to NC without ever remembering having reception problems - except boonies in CT. (in Va, had to do a cc card call before VZW purchased area company).

    Haven't had any problems when I've been in Boston (never made a call while in the Tunnels, was too busy driving:eek:
