    Here is the most interesting part of the last link for Manhattan:


    "*Test Man Ride-Along Program
    Specially-equipped Verizon Wireless test vehicles simultaneously test the networks of six wireless providers using a mobile laptop computer to generate calls. If you are interested in setting up an interview or ride-along test drive with your local Verizon Wireless test man or woman, please contact Lynette Viviani at 973-283-9228.
    "

    Go for a ride!

    Trust me, by the time you are done with the ride, you are already in the process of porting your number over to Verizon. :biggrin:

    Besides the fact I have about a year & 8 months to go on my 4 line contract & can't afford the ETF & buying new phones, I had tried them last year & had problems with the service in my area, which actually suprised me, they may have gotten better though by now & besides the couple of dead area's they have ( they are trying to build some towers to fill these voids, it's the NIMBY'ers that are a problem as usual) I can't complain about Cingular in my area, that I need & use the service. Yes there had been a 2 week period the network had issues & don't know why, there aren't any towers to integrate in North NJ just change the network ID & maybe do some tune ups ETC...
    Now Florida was a different story & if I lived there, I may have jumped ship.

    I was talking about different reasons because I know that cingular works very well for you. I ment because of all the pro Verizon things you are going to see and hear and the brainwashing going on :D

    Brainwashing is the key word here.

    the purpose of the test rides is to check your competitors
    DEAD/WEAK Spots and you improve on those areas.


    It's not just the TEST Drives that helps carriers,
    CUSTOMER COMPLAINTS of a Dead Zone are
    a Major Contributor.

    It will be nice to see the can u hear me now guy
    do the CUSTOMER Complaints on Dead Spots
    and how he handles them


    But as more TOWERS are placed those areas are getting
    smaller and smaller.
