    Can anyone attest to Cingular's reception quality on Long Island and NJ? On Long Island I pretty much go all over the place, but mostly Suffolk County, and in NJ its mostly from the North in Bergen County to Princeton in Mercer County. I assume Cingular is awesome in NYC.

    I'm pretty set on switching from Verizon to Cingular with the Motorola MPx220, but I wanted your opinions on Cingular in this area before i invest $300+ on this thing. Thanks!

    I can say that AWE's network in the northern half of NJ is very good to excellent, and since Cingular is now using this network it should be even better with the ability to use T-Mobiles as a backup you shouldn't have problems, as for the southern half of the state, Cingular is 850/1900 & AWE's network is 1900, you shouldn't have problems there either, since once the roaming agreements were opened early this year people on AWE have said there coverage got better on the Cingular network. Can't help with LI though.

    I can vouch for what Fire14 just explained.

    In LI, I find that Cingular/AWS is comparable to Verizon. That's as good as it gets.

    Well, that must be a result of the merger because somewhere on this forum is a long thread about a guy in Massapequa, Long Island who couldn't get any reception with Cingular.

    I don't know what is wrong with his phone, but Cingular Blue towers have great signal in his area.
