We was warned about the coverage issue with ST. We go the beach a lot and heard its awful outside of your standard area. That's the reason we changed from ntelos to verizon was because of their poor coverage outside this area on sprints ****y network. Was also stuck on 3G with ntelos even on their own towers.cdkyle said:I've had ST for over two years now and its great as far as I'm concerned. Depends on what you want. I love the $45/mo, where I was pay $150+. But, I don't need or want a $700 - $800 I phone. I have a $99 Blackberry, which works just fine for me. All I want is to be able to talk on the dam phone, send a text or two, and get on the internet to check the weather if necessary. Most important thing with ST is to research and identify where you are going to be using the phone the most, as ST uses other peoples towers. For instance Verizon, At&t, and T-mobile as previously mentioned. You will want to select the phone and "sub-carrier" that coincides with where you are going to use the phone the most. Roaming sometimes is not an option. If you are going to travel much, I would not go with ST.
The problem with ST and verizon is your stuck on their 3G towers. I can use both with verizon. I use the net a lot too. At our beach house we have piss poor verizon 3G coverage but great 4G. You can switch between the 2 on verizon and watch your signal change.We Fix Houses said:BC - that's because you were on Sprint which is the weakest network. You can get ST and be on Verizon. Seems like Sprint is popular in Southside...I have friends in Reidsville and up your way that have it and rave about it ?
