My wife is interested in the Precedent. We saw it at a local Walmart today but we're not sure how to tell who's towers will be used once we get the phone. Verizon seems to work best in the area we are in and I noticed the package did say CDMA but I also read the reviews and some said Verizon and others said the carrier was Sprint. We live near some mountains in PA and Sprint just don't hack it out here. Is there any way to tell for sure who the carrier would be?
