I shipped my wife off to North Dakota with a Sprint Upstage phone for a north by northwest torture test. First of all GSM coverage is sparse or non-existent in most of this ND country so her T-Mobile phone might as well be shutoff and forwarded to a CDMA provider like Sprint. She arrived in the vast nothingness and the first thing she noticed was a constant searching by her GSM phone for a network. She had been warned. She took care of that with a *21 cell number forward from T-Mo to Sprint. She turned on the Sprint Upstage and network reception pegged 5 bars and the sound of her voice was sweet. She uses a unlocked Cingular 3125 as her main phone on T-Mo. However she needed the Sprint Upstage to stay connected in North Dakota. If you really want 100% coverage in the US I think Sprint or Verizon CDMA is the ticket. Thanks to Sprint I can still talk to my wife while she is on assignment in North Dakota.
