Guy: Hey baby.
Girl: Hey, what’s up?
Guy: Nothin much. Just wanted to talk to the most beautiful girl in the world, that’s all.
Girl: That’s sweet.
Guy: Its true!
Girl: Yeah, yeah.
Guy: Its just nice to know that I’m the only man in your world.
Girl (Mouthing): Of course your are!
Guy (who does not hear her): I am the only man in you world … right?
Baby?
Is it Earl?
Cat got your tongue? Earl got your tongue?

Have you ever seen the above commercial from Cingular? Hopefully, you’ve never experienced major breech of miscommunication as depicted in the commercial. Cingular (at&t) boasts the most reliable wireless phone network nationwide with the fewest number of dropped calls. From anecdotes of people I know, there seems to be some truth to that claim. One colleague of mine, who lives in the outskirts of the city, even claims that he has never experienced a dropped call with Cingular … ever.


Lousy Phone Signal

For those without Cingular, how is your wireless phone service? Have you ever experienced that inconvenience of a dropped call? I certainly have … too many times. I get terrible signal with my Sprint service. Literally, I get at least five of my calls drops every week! It seems that my usual hangouts do not have a good signal in the area. Really, my Sprint service is not like Visa card, “everywhere you want to be.”

Stacking Credits

I read from MyMoneyBlog that if you call customer service (*2 talk) and say “dropped call” Sprint will credit you $0.50! You don’t even have to talk to a real, live person. The automated system will understand and deduct it from your next bill. Believe me, with my experience that will add up! My portion of our family-sharing plan is about $20 dollars. After two days, I already have $1.50 in credits to my name.

Really, it is a win-win situation for consumers. You either reduce your cellular phone bill to free (or nearly-free) or you get good service and call quality.
