New Phone/Pocket PC with GPS (AT&T Tilt)

 

AT&T has a new PDA/Phone that has GPS built in. Works with many different software including Google Earth and TeleNav.

I own the 8525 and used a bluetooth GPS receiver with no problems.

So what do you recommend? T-mobile coverage is spotty and Verizon castrates their phone features.

Sprint has been the best company I've had.

What companies have a local presence where you live? Stores/Authorized agents? Start by comparing those... Personally, I would not choose a company that uses GSM technology as it is limited into how much data the technology is capable of compared to CDMA...beyond that - to get realistic comparisons check www.phonescoop.com and their forums to gather information.

You could Try this

Become a HAM and talk around the block or around the world for the initial cost of your equipment! You could go cheap or you could go expensive - it's up to you how much you want to spend!

Keith,

I'm perfectly happy with AT&T as I've had the least problem with my reception at business destinations than my colleagues (I spend more time on the road than home) and I've had AT&T for over 10 years (AT&T -> Cingular -> AT&T) and not planning to change especially now that I'm using iPhone. I was just asking alofficial because he said to stay away but didn't specify why nor he gave recommendation on althernatives.

But verizon has the best coverage in my opinion. But I do agree about their phones.

Sprint is the best

If Sprint coverage is OK in your area, then Sprint is the best for PDA usage because it is the cheapest in town and their 3G network is very good. Go with their sero plan and you would be surprised how cheap compared with other carrier. You NEED unlimited data for PDA phone.
