The Verizon Cell phone voice quality is awesome. Verizon is about to build several cell towers in north Mississippi.

Wife and I love the Voice Control System over the command. You get the voice control stuff when you get a MB cell phone installed.

We can say CD1, track4 and the command will play exactly what we say. We even program the system to dial my bother, by saying dial looser.

Driving is a lot safer now with the voice controls, because we do not have to worry about looking and feeling for the buttons to press.

my friend's son in the uk installs custom cell phone setups in cars. the voice control system through the car's speakers is very popular as the police give a ticket if they catch you talking on a normal cellphone while driving there.
he puts the mike up by the rear view mirror for a very clean and unobtrusive install.
the phone goes in a holder so the user can just grab it (fully charged of course) when they leave the vehicle. very cool.

RE: Cell phones

All the cell companies are good. Just find one that meets your needs and your price range.

In my case, I was forced to go with Verizon, because I wanted an integrated MB phone. Cingular would not activate the MB V60I phone, so I got the V60S Verizon phone. But I am happy with Verizon voice quality, and Verizon does not drop or pause my calls when my call is transported to a new cell tower. It was a nightmare for me with Cingular when my calls get transported to a new cell tower. Half the time, my calls get drop.
