    In a post on another thread the links were given to get to signal strength maps for Cingular and Nextel. Does anyone know if Verizon has a similar map? The A/C map is too large a scale and inaccurate anyway. I know they can tell you where you fall on the A/C network if you give them a city or town, so there must be some type of database.

    None, because Verizon claims their dead zone is almost unreachable.

    For some reason our dear CDMA carriers (Verizon and Sprint) like to keep coverage maps a secret. I don't know what they are ashamed of.

    I've never seen a signal strength map for Cingular. If you have the link(s) please post them.

    They don't have a signal strength map but they have a search engine where you can enter a zip code to know how the signal strength is rated. I don't have the address handy but as soon as I find it I will post it here.

    actually sprint does not keep their maps hidden. store reps are allowed to use a coverage tool on the intranet and show it to customers. Signal strength is available in some of the markets, otherwise it is just straight up coverage.....but it is searchable by address.

    I mean by hidden that they don't publish a detailed national map on the internet like Voicestream, Cingular, AT&T and everyone else. Verizon does the same as Sprint for some reason.

    By the way, TNDan, here is the Cingular signal strength website. I know you've seen this before: http://alliance.cingularinteractive.com/dev/cda/zip

    I hate to burst your bubble, but that is the the Mobitex network. Cingular cellular phones do not use that network. Mobitex is the SMR license used by the blackberry devices and similar devices. If you are using a blackberry, that is the right site to go to for coverage. However if you are using a cellular phone, that coverage information is not correct.

    I guess ajulius is right...

    I put in some counties/places of the Bay Area and they return as "Excellent" and "Good" coverage even if there is NO WAY THAT CINGULAR HAS COVERAGE IN THAT PLACES... own experience

    Sorry Bobo

    Yes, I've seen that site before and I have it book marked. Although I didn't know it was for the blackberry devices and not their wireless service. Might as well delete the link then it does me no good.

    Voicestream needs to include this in their site
