Went to my local Radio Shack to see what they had to offer (cell phone wise). They tout AT&T. Okay. Now, according to the clerks there, ATT isn't offering any special sign-up deals right now (free phone, etc.) and if I buy a Nokia that is set up for Verizon, it' won't work when/if I get out of an area that is served by Verizon because AT&T and Verizon don't have an agreement to act as each other's carrier in areas not serviced by the primary carrier. They also said ATT rates just went up. So, I guess my question is, if I get Verizon as my provider, buy a Nokia dual mode phone, that phone will only be good where there is Verizon coverage? Is the dual mode only for analog/digital? Are ATT and Ver. analog or digital? I'm nowhere's near as cognizant of all the ins and outs of cell phone usage as everyone else on this board but I figured I'll learn...with your help.
