I also read somewhere that each new technology gets assigned (by each carrier) to a different spectrum of bandwidth, so, even though any carrier might add new tower locations, the old technology that my phone runs on may not be installed on a new tower....furthermore, when they need to install new technology on an old tower, they may remove the oldest technology's equipment from service (or eliminate the bandwidth or both)....so my old phone that can recieve signals from a, b, and c type towers becomes less effective when they remove type A from service in order to install type F, G, or H.

I have had much time to ponder these things waiting for a text to go through or redialing a dropped call.
And btw: go blue!
You wouldn't believe the things I've seen...
