Anyone have any insights on the quality of Cingular's coverage in
Charleston, SC?

Any thoughts on suncom or alltel as well for Charleston? Thanks.

i have alltel and nextel service in the charleston area have absolutely no
probs with coverage whatsoever... the only dead spot seems to be about a
20mile stretch of I-26 headed towards columbia.. other than that its been
flawless for 2 yrs.

No real problems in the past seven years. The cell near my house has
been crapping out a lot lately, generally coinciding with the "free"
nights and weekends. They cover the areas I go to and have the
services I want. Coverage in the outlying rural areas is spotty, as it
is with all carriers.

I don't know too many happy Suncom customers. Not sure that I've even
met any Alltel customers.

Thanks for the info, just curious why to avoid Suncom. Coverage?
Customer service? dropped calls? Thanks.

Yes.

No, seriously, yes, yes, and yes. Besides, any company that has to resort
to a "perpetual contract" to keep its customers should be suspect anyway.
I don't know many happy Suncom customers.

Thanks Steve, I guess unlimited calls was too good to be true.

I was going to use my T-mobile unlocked 6610 with Cingular. Are the
local customer service reps going to tell me this can't be done? Should
I call Cingular direct?

It certainly can be done, no matter what the various reps tell you.
Call Cingular directly and tell them you only need the SIM. Should be
about $20. You can probably get out of any contractual obligations
while you're at it, since the contract is generally tied to a phone
subsidy.
