    I'm looking for a good cellfone provider in Princeton.The phone shall be my primary phone and I make tons of long distance calls,so I would prefer a comparison between the providers offering unlimited nights & weekends(ATT,Verizon). I don't care about roaming[​IMG]
    Thanks!

    I'd stay away from ATT if you are in Princeton proper - if you are in Lawrenceville or West Windsor, you'll be fine with them - but I've found their service by the college to be pretty poor.

    Consider Cingular, if you are in West Windsor, Princeton area i always have service, even in Kingston, where cellular is terrible. I live 4 miles from Princeton, and had ATT, there coverage is not good at all, Cingular is great, and Verizon is pretty good. I have no idea about VoiceStream. If you are using it exclusively at Princeton U, Nassau st, coverage is usually 5 bars all the time.

    I will be using this almost exclusively in and around the University.Like I said before,I really like the unlimited nights & weekends,so maybe I'll go with Verizon.

    Hello,

    Great site.

    After an exhaustive search of carriers, I found verizon to have the best coverage around Princeton. However, I was swayed by Cingular's promise that they had built a new tower a few blocks from my house, and so would soon offer the best coverage.

    several months later... they still have not turned on the tower, and I never get more than 3 bars. Often I get disconnected during use.

    The boys at Cingular seem to have no idea ( or they do, but won't share it ) as to why the tower has not been turned on.

    Anyone here know?

    Knowing Princeton and their SuperNIMBY behavior, It may be a thousands years. Princeton wants 100% coverage, but everytime a provider wants to add a tower, it takes forever to get it going. I know the tower near the hospital is delayed.

    yup,

    that's the tower I've been waiting for.
    If it's already built, what are complaining about?
