So why would they only replace 2/4 pannels in each direction?
Some of the newer pannels can do both 800 and 1900. Also, some of the newer panels can handle more calls.
Thanks for the suggestions, however, I failed to mention that I would like expandable memory and 1+MP camera
The V635 has that and more.
Also don't forget, T-Mobile is getting everything setup to give up 10 Mhz to Cingular as part of the sale, I have seen & talked to T-Mobile techs & they are working overtime to get this done as fast as possible. I have seen some new T-Mobile sites go up in our town in the last 6 months so they are trying to get the holes covered & increase the capacity for the loss of the 10 Mhz.
It would be interesting to see if T-Mobile starts the 850 roaming agreement with Cingular in this area, it would help T-Mobile out big time and would make them a contender against Cingular.
That would cost them BIG money as people would be roaming on Cingular most of the time.
I will say this though....I don't know the details, but expect some major action on the subject of TMO 850 roaming in the near future (next month or so) :browani:
Sorry, I should've specified in North NJ. I know T-Mobile is great in places like Providence, Las Vegas, and some other cities. But in NJ they just don't fare well.
Thanks for all the help. Now which phone should I go with, the Motorola v635 or the Sony Ericsson s710a.
I've always had Motorolas and have had very good luck with them. But, I love the k750i from Sony Ericsson and their gui beats motorolas
I would refer you to your other thread instead of creating duplicate posts about this.
I was looking to buy the Sony W800i, which is basically the same phone as the k750i and only does 900/1800/1900. I spend most of my time on eastern Long Island, but sometimes visit NYC and New Jersey too. Is it a bad idea to get a phone w/o 850MHz band? If all the Cingular cellphone towers run on both 850 and 1900, shouldn't I not have any problems? Snozle, was your reception really that bad? Thanks.
puffarthur, i'm sorry to say that it was unacceptable.
Thanks Snozle. Hmmm is it possible that Sony will release a US version with 850 and EDGE? :browani: I think thats what they did with the s710. Oh please please let them come out with a US version! haha
in my opinion Cingular has good combined 1900 and 850nmhz coverage in NY/NJ area. The interior coverage is better with ATT than T-Mob.
