I've used this phone since March. I'm enrolled w/ verizon, 1500 minutes for $150, no roaming charges or long distance in US. I travel frequently to san jose and Austin, and it works excellent in both locations. The national rate plans w/ ATT (tdma) or verizon/GTE (cdma) require dual band (PCS + cellular), but I was able to get around that by talking to salespeople that have an interest in selling you the service. It's worth buying the phone and trying a few different resellers, not just the co-branded stores. All you need is someone to program your phone and start the service. Try a owner-operator store, and be nice!

Seeing that you live in Austin, I used to have a sony dual mode cdma, $100 for 600 minutes, no roaming/LD charges, provided by GTE in Austin. Don't know if they still have such a deal.

If you can't get the national service, one idea is to keep the 7000 in the car, and forward your calls from a dual band phone that has national service. Could be expensive if you use it a lot in the car.



: Looking for feed back on CPT 7000, service provider and if you have freedomm USA type or One rate type service.
