What will I get if I switch to a digital phone?
Digital phones are smaller, lighter and have much better sound quality and longer battery life than the original analog phones. They usually offer extended data capability features, such as voice mail, caller ID and other services similar to those found on home telephones. Digital networks are rapidly expanding, but the fact remains that rural areas are still often served only by analog systems. For the most consistent and far-reaching service, look into multimode phones.
How do I choose a service provider?
Most people choose a service provider and then they choose a phone based on what the service provider has. A lot of the time the service provider will offer package plans. There are probably as many different plans available as there are phones. The typical varieties are: pay-as-you-go, unlimited plans, and nationwide plans. There are many service providers today that are allowing customers to switch between plans without cost or conract extensions. This allows you to find a plan that works best for you instead of getting locked into a plan that doesn't suit your needs.
What is PCS?
PCS is a class of wireless communications services that use a different frequency (1.9GHz) than typical cell phones.
Why is PCS better?
This class usually uses all digital technology to both send and receive transmissions. Because these systems are digital the data is sent in bits and bytes. This digital transmission allows for clearer connections that also have less interference. In addition, the digital format allows for a more secure system.
What is a multimode phone?
Multimode phones are phones that are capable of working on both analog and digital cell phone systems.
What advantages do multimode phones offer?
Multimode phones allow the user to maintain a connection wherever they go. These phones are especially good at keeping people connected in rural areas where digital coverage may be scarce. For a lot of people this is the most sensible phone to purchase.
