It's a huge advantage, though once Cingular turns off their AMPS
network, part of the advantage will disappear. It's rather amusing that
as a Verizon customer I can make calls on Cingular's network, in areas
where 95% of Cingular's customers can't use the only available Cingular
network, i.e. in the Florida Everglades.

A few minutes ago my nephew called me from Gainesville, FL, reminding me
to watch the BCS game at 5:00 p.m. PST. He was calling from his cell
phone, and I could barely decode what he was saying the quality of the
call was bad. I told him, "let me guess, you have Cingular." He laughed,
and told me that he was changing soon, to either Alltel or Verizon, as
the Cingular coverage in Gainesville is terrible.
