Dear CNET members,
More than a month ago, we presented you with the Hot Topic discussion, "What's the worst carrier experience you've ever had?" And you came through in a big way--with a whopping 690 comments, you shared your worst experiences with your cellular carrier's service. Now, to be fair and give the carriers some springtime love and praise, let's turn the tables around. Whether it's terrific customer service, great rate plans, awesome coverage, or even the quality of phones that the cellular carrier offers, tell us about it in the already all-so-popular Make the Call discussion, "Which cellular carrier offers the best service?" While "best" can be an overstatement, you know where I'm headed, right? Just think above-average satisfaction thoughts. We look forward to reading your great experience and the reason why you're so proud to be a subscriber to that cellular service--I, for one, am always looking for a convincing reason to switch to a better carrier.
This week's hot topic:
Which cell phone carrier offers the best service?
Many people think of their cellular provider much like they do their favorite sports team. They're fiercely loyal, and everyone who doesn't agree is just plain wrong. In this "Make the call" discussion we asked which cell carrier was tops, and hundreds of you weighed in.
