Any good suggestions for phones that will work with Cingular?
go pick one out...
make sure its got the 850 MHz band or you won't get very good service on Cingular.
The Samsung X820 is the phone that I was looking at, but it doesn't have the 850 MHZ band?
Has anyone used a phone without it on Cingular? How bad will the service be?
It varries, 1900 is avaible in some major citys and some randoms also, but then in some places you will have no service where others with 850 do.
I'm on Cingular right now using a phone that doesn't support 850, and in most places I've got great service, but there are a few places where I've got absoultely none. Plus the 850 band is much better at penetrating walls etc.
Kungfuwoo is in your area (Chicago) and he has said in the past that you guys pretty much have to have 850 phones.
Damn. I get no good reception in West Lafayette with my current phone, I wonder if the other bands are stronger out there?
What is your current phone?
I'd go with a Nokia, never had much problems with them.
gotta have 850 for sure
the nokia brick phones. I always manage to break whatever phone I'm using so I decided to get one of those. They're damn near indestructable and get great reception. I'm not as much interested in having all of the features that someone wants in a cell phone, I'm more interested in having a phone that works well and won't break under all the heave stress I put it under (throwing it at walls and what not)
