| | Best Carrier for Pearl?
Please Login to Remove!
I'm located in Fargo, ND and I've had an Alltel 8130 for 1 1/2 years. In 6 months my contract with Alltel is up and I am going to re-evaluate my wireless needs. Alltel seems to have great reception and I rarely lose a call.
I'm pretty happy with the Pearl and don't think I want to get into a larger Blackberry phone like Tour, Bold, etc (I keep my phone in my front pants pocket). Currently, my only gripes are lack of free GPS service and the crappy camera. I think the GPS is because of Alltel. I just don't need it often enough to pay for it.
My bill comes out to $105 a month after taxes, which includes unlimited everything except only 500 anytime minutes (I never go over since I have 15 My Circle numbers). My work currently pays for 100% of my cell phone bill but I won't ask them to start paying for GPS too since I don't need it for work.
I can easily go to the other shops around town and check pricing, but what I really want to know is the DIFFERENCE between carriers, good and bad. I can get Alltel, Verizon, Unicell, Sprint/Nextel. Can't get T-Mobile. I think GPS is included with Sprint?
