    i got it recently..... the sound quality is exceptional.. but coverage is spotty

    i live like 3 blocks from UT Austin campus in downtown Austin... and i walk to school.... I will have full reception one second, walk like 10 steps and lose all reception... then another 20 steps and its there again... WTF.. most of the time its good though.. im thinking that its because GSM is stil fairly new and isnt fully implemented yet

    GSM covers 90% of Canada and around 85% if the United States I believe.

    It offers clearer sounds and an extended call area, the phones work on 1 watt instead of the usual .6 for digital and analog.

    Data transfer speeds are faster than digital as well.

    You can get tri band phones that will work in North America as well as Europe if you do alot traveling...

    I used to try to sell this network so I know a little about it..feel free to ask.

    You should ask for opinions on's AT&T forum regarding your specific area. I just migrated on Saturday in NYC and so far is hasn't been that bad.
