Excellent, Clear Presentation
Penelope Stetz ably covers a lot of ground, clearly describing cell phone technology as well as the pros and cons of various types of wireless equipment and services. This book is a model of how to explain a technical subject for both beginners and experienced users.

The Cell Phone Handbook
A MUST read for anyone who wants to know a little or a lot about cellular service. The Cell Phone Handbook can give you all the information, (and then some,) that you need to become a knowledgeable member of the wireless phenom. If you happen to be in the cellular industry then as a reference guide it can't be beat as it is also more than the basics. From basics to advanced the education you gain from this book will make it well worth the money. Well written and succinct. The GLOSSARY alone makes this book a bargain!Was this review helpful?

Comprehensive, insightful, and fun to read
This book is a very well written and in-depth treatment of cellular telephony technology. Not only does it provide extensive coverage of the basics of cell phone technology, it also covers more advanced topics such as roaming and zoning. If you've been unfortunate enough to fall into the trap of a cell phone service provider with a '$20/month' plan and soon realized that you're trapping footing $60/month bills for your service, you'll soon realize why this book is is also very practical. I love the way the author discusses (p.75) the process of making service choices using an interactive worksheet. Having taught classes on telecommunications in a business school at the university level, and having gone through the proces of making a book choice for my entire classes, I truly believe that this book is the best I've seen on the topic. A comprehensive index, a fun to read FAQ chapter (that answers questions that are sometimes even embarrasing to ask), and a clear writing stuyle make this a cool addition to my book shelf. For sure, this book is worth every dollar.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
