Greetings, Believe it or not I've never had a cell phone and I've found researching carriers, plans, phones, etc. can be a bit of a challenge, which is where I'm hoping you folks can help -- I stumbled upon WirelessAdvisor.com during this process. I spend most of my time between St. Cloud, MN and the Twin Cities. I guess if I were to map out the overall coverage area I'm looking at, it would be approximately within a triangle having St. Cloud, Des Moines, IA, and Milwaukee, WI at the corners. I do travel into northern MN occasionally also. Signal and reception are priorities. In the process of talking with friends, family, and coworkers it seems like AT&T and Verizon are the front-runners. I intend to take full advantage of my 30 day trial period when the time comes but I'm hoping to go with the best carrier the first time. So... who should I go with? Thank you for your recommendations.
