I am looking for a cellular phone plan in the New England (specifically Massachussetts) area. From the feedback I got so far, I have this generalization: At&t's plan sux. So far, it looks like a race between Sprint, Verizon, or Omnipoint (aka VoiceStream). Free paging would be nice, which is something that Verizon lacks. But for an extra $2.99 a month, it seems to be a minor inconvience if it has a superior network. Also, how do I know if the phone I get is good? I have been looking at them and so far I like the Qualcomm QCP-860, it loos nice, is thin and it is nicely priced.

hmm, I dunno about numaric paging I know it comes with caller ID, umm a voice mail box if your phone is off, call waiting, I really don't rememeber what else but that stuff is the basic stuff that comes with the package. Check out Cellone's website for more info I guess. They have really good coverage of most of Mass (or at least the parts of Mass that I've been too) BTW where in MA are you? I'm on the Cape.

Seems like a good plan, but they have a limited cell phone collection. How releiable is the service?
