Well, against my better instincts, I chose AT&T (Cingular) over Verizon as my new mobile phone carrier. Remember, I needed to get one because my old employer would not allow me to keep my current one (not even the phone number), even if I paid for it. I know the horror stories about coverage, etc. But here is my rationale.
1. My immediate family is on AT&T, so I should get free calls to them.
2. In the near future we are going to get the family plan, and AT&T has a cheaper plan than Verizon.
Btw, I got a free black Motorola Razr V3 with a free bluetooth headset.
Here's hoping for the best.
