Cell phone in Pittsburgh
« on: July 28, 2005, 09:20:39 PM »
Hi there...
What cell phone carrier do you prefer in Pittsburgh?

I've been using Sprint for a long time, and when I visited Pitt, I didn't notice any problems with reception or coverage. My only hang up is I think I might be able to get a more budget friendly plan with another company (since I'm back to being a poor student again....waaaaa), so I was wondering what other carriers folks are statisfied with in the Pittsburgh area.....? (I will need a nationwide plan, and this will be my main phone....won't be using a land line)...

What are your thoughts...

Verizon has been great to me for 3 years.  No areas of no service in the greater pittsburgh area (like a 50 mile radius)...except in the boonies out towards indiana.
I will be a Nittany Lion turned Pitt Panther for 1L 2005.

FWIW, Cingular works fine for me.
