Item 4.       Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant

         On May 5, 2003, Price Communications Corporation, a New York
corporation ("Registrant"), dismissed Deloitte & Touche LLP ("DT") as
Registrant's principal accountant to audit Registrant's financial statements,
and effective the same date engaged BDO Seidman, LLP ("Seidman") in place of DT.
Both the dismissal of DT and the engagement of Seidman were approved by
Registrant's Board of Directors and Audit and Finance Committee.

         There were no disagreements with DT on any matter of accounting
principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or
procedure. There were no reportable events described under Item 304(a)(1)(v) of
Regulation S-K.

         The reports of Registrant's principal accountants on Registrant's
financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2001 and 2002 did not
contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or
modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

         During the years ended December 31, 2001 and 2002 and through the date
hereof, Registrant did not consult Seidman regarding the application of
accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed,
or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on Registrant's financial
statements, or any of the matters or reportable events set forth in Items
304(a)(2)(i) and (ii) of Regulation S-K.

         Registrant has provided DT with a copy of the disclosure it is making
in this Form 8-K.


         Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
