WSJ.com - Wireless Carriers Leave Many Callers in Dead Zone

WSJ.com - Wireless Carriers Leave Many Callers in Dead Zone "U.S. cellular carriers are aggressively promoting a new generation of phones that have everything from built-in cameras to Web surfing. But there's another, less-welcome wrinkle to the latest phones: Many are missing their old analog gear, and that can make it harder to place and receive calls in many areas.
As wireless carriers make the transition from analog to digital networks, many consumers are discovering that their fancier digital phones simply can't complete a call in a lot of places where their old phones worked just fine. Problems with blocked calls and dead zones are afflicting callers in big cities, including New York and Los Angeles, but they are especially pronounced in rural areas."
