    [​IMG]Help! I'm a cell phone idiot & don't know where to go! I want a cell phone, occassional use, emergency use from anywhere in New England. Don't want "drops", want clarity, want to be sure I can get through. Minimum cost because it would be occassionly. Any ideas??? Prepaid cards? Which phone? GSM or CD???(whatever)??? Which carrier?

    Ask around to people in your area and see who has a good reputation.

    If you want something that you can get coverage on anywhere in New England, I would tend to steer away from GSM. GSM coverage just isn't as extensivie as CDMA and TDMA at the moment. Look into the local or regional plans of Verizon, Cingular or AT&T. I believe they all also have prepaid options (I know Verizon does for sure).

    As for "drops," well, that's just a fact of life for cell phones. Every carrier is going to drop a call every once in awhile (some more than others.) As far as clarity, there are many factors there- phone used, strength of signal, etc. Whether TDMA or CDMA inherently has better call clarity is highly debatable.

    Personally- I have been happiest with Verizon. They have had the clearest calls and least amount of drops so far. But that is in my area, Chicago, it may differ a little in the NE.
