Cell phone plans...

My 2-year contract with Cingular is about to expire, so I need a new contract.  I’m thinking of moving away from Cingular to a different provider, for a couple reasons: 1) they require a 2-year contract, which means you’re locked in for a long time, and it also means they have little incentive to improve their service (since there’s no chance of people switching to another provider after a year).  For example, you can get AIM Wireless with every major provider except Cingular.  2) Cingular has such a small selection of phones and they’re all boring.  3) I’ve been with Cingular for either 2 or 4 years now, I can’t even remember it’s been so long, and I know I’ve had countless frustrations with them that I can’t even recall right now.  So I just want to try something different.

However, Cingular does now have free rollover minutes, and the "nights" in the "free nights and weekends" recently began starting at 7pm instead of 9pm.  So...

Anyway, if you have a cell phone, with Cingular or anyone else, post a reply and let me know if you’re happy with your service.  And also where you’re at.

Personally, I go with the no phone option.  Its really inexpensive, although, it is a bit harder for people to get ahold of you (I don’t even have a home phone)

I used to have Sprint PCS though, and they were OK, as far as it was sprint, although their billing cycle/system is a bit shoddy, although they did give me the 100 dollar rebate for my phone 2 times, so I dunno.  At work we have Nextel, and its just bad, but my buddy who has Nextel outside of work loves the service and it has never failed him.
