    Check it out for Delaware and basically the entire Philly area!! Use 19977 if you need to! Cingular roaming I guess...?

    Heck, I'll cancel Cingular and get some T-Mobile if that's the case!

    If they allowed Cingular roaming...why not, it'd save money. TM is better than Cingular at school too, win-win. Their coverage is not that dense in DE or in Philly as that map shows, it has to be lying or showning Cingular 850 or even 1900 roaming. Good T-Mobile coverage on the highways/cities, good rural Cingular coverage and cheap prices would make T-Mobile viable. But..I am happy with Cingular...so most likely not!

    more roaming in MN, CO, NM, and OH as well. I thought Cingular is 850 in Philly (Cell One) - is it former AT&T 1900 network? I don't think it's 850 since they didn't add that part to northern MN that we know they sent a postcard to customers in that area.

    Where? Which nationwide map - the one that is all green? I wouldn't rely on that one. The compass site and the PCC from the TM coverage webpage appeard to be the same.

    The "new" map appears to have wiped out 90% of the roaming coverage in Vermont. :mad:

    (Goes to dust off the VZW-activated TracFone...)

    That was roaming coverage in VT, and the carrier turned off most of their 1900 GSM now that their 850 GSM is up and running...Unicel I think.

    Then the map is incorrect.

    I was roaming on Unicel (850) at the end of April and had non-stop coverage on I-89 from exit 15 in NH, continuing into VT and all the way up I-89 in VT.

    The map does not show any 850 coverage. The only place that 850 is now official is in MN and UP of MI, IIRC, where people got postcards mailed to them.
