    Hi guys...

    On this page:

    Straight Talk Switch

    What are the networks? My guess is:

    upper left = AT&T
    lower left = Verizon
    upper right = T-Mobile ?
    lower right = Sprint

    I think you got it.

    Att = blue
    T mobile = pinkish
    Verizon = Red
    Sprint = yellow.

    Just make sure you go to the actual carriers website and zoom in on your area. For example, the ATT map looks about the same as the Verizon one here but when I zoom in, ATT only covers the highways in my area while Verizon works in the middle of nowhere. In your case the reverse may be true. I found out the hard way when I first signed on whit straight talk! According to their site, when I enter my zip code under the service area section, it suggests only ATT phones, but under the shop phones page it suggests both.

    ...and ask some people in your area how good the reception actually is. Most maps are estimates of reception quality.
