I would agree with Rusty on all points and would add that my nokia 6162 
gets a signal (or stronger signal) where my friends nokia 5160 does not. 

FWIW my parents tried pacbell a year or so ago and had very bad
experiences with coverage. They are now with ATT and are happier. ATT
service is a bit more than others, but the coverage makes up for it.
