  3. Sweet! Can’t wait for my current cell phone contract with another carrier to expire in mid-December.

  4. Heather says:

    My reception has actually decreased as a result of the switch and I am not satisfied with it. I can barely talk on the phone in my own home as I get either one or no bars so it’s constantly breaking up or dropping calls. 3G not such a great thing.

  5. Not an endorsement, but Verizon Wireless has had 3G into these areas for years.

  6. Right you are, Bubby. I just remembered this hburgnews post from March of last year.

    Too late. Just switched to Verizon and the Droid. Couldn’t deal with the Edge network and shoddy coverage in the valley any longer.
