    Verizon released a new PRL recently that now has Sprint as one of their preferred roaming partners in many markets. Previously Sprint customers could roam on Verizon's network but not the other way around. A possible reason for this being that Verizon plans on releasing a digital only phone with no analog capabilities.

    If Verizon releases a digital only phone, the loss of coverage when traveling here in the southwest would make it useless in 80 percent of the area. We simply don't have the population in our states to warrant service providers spending the money it would take to replace or upgrade all the AMPS towers we have anytime soon.

    I'd say that it's a given we will be on all digital services eventually, but I think it's well down the road.

    If you combine the CDMA digital networks of Verizon, Alltel and Sprint together here in the Southwest I would say you would have a lot more digital coverage than 20 percent. What area isn't covered with digital in the SW by one of those carriers? Well anyway the digital only thing was just a rumor I read on some discussion group.

    I dont know about the digital only verizon phones. One of the things that alot of verizon sales people use in their pitch is that their phones are a tri-mode phone and can work all over.

    Analog is everywhere-- and in conjunction I will have to say that Verizon Wireless has the biggest CDMA/NAMPS network in the nation and hope to see digital in the near future.
