    My phone display shows "Cingular" 15 miles past the Canadian border, (and then changes to "Rogers")

    this is all by the Champlain, NY border (going to Montreal on I-87)

    my question is, if I use my phone at the border itself, (or past it) will I pick up a Unicel or Cingular tower, or will I pick up a Canadian tower?

    does someone here have first hand experience traveling through there???

    whatever is displayed on screen that network will be used
    even if you're pass the border.

    If your phone still says Cingular I'd think you're still being served by a U.S. carrier, which is very well possible. Signals can travel pretty far, even across borders. If it displays the name of a Canadian provider you're roaming.
