5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Daisy Mtn Rd. | Anthem Ridge, Phoenix, AZ 85086 |

Been dying to try the IPhone or the HTC Touch, however 2 friends with ATT cannot use their phones at my house, so no IPhone for me. Sprint has the new HTC TOuch, but I had Sprint before... what a HASSLE, such spotty reception, they finally let me out of my contract without a fee. Verizon better wake up on the touch-flo phones though. People want the newest technology with good reception. For now, I guess I will wait to buy.

i do not like Verizons call plans, so I come on here to figure out who may be good, and it seems like the opinions vary so much that I will have to stick with Verizon as I have NO trouble getting a signal anywhere in the valley. I have traveled through CA and WI as well as all over the valley and have never had a signal or dropped call issue. I work inside office complexes and almost always get calls. sometimes it will go directly to voicemail, but I really have no complaints about the Verizon coverage, just the plans suck.

Constantly dropped calls, lots of dead spots in my home. Alltel claims I have 3 towers in the vicinity and doesn't understand why I have dropped calls. Hard to do business on a cell this way.

In our own house signal varies from 5 bars one minute to no service the next with the phone in the same place. Sometimes the only place to make calls is the kitchen, other times it drops call there. There is no rhyme or reason to it. It is horrible. Had T-Mobile for years before this and never had a problem

Frustrating, one maybe two bars on a good day. Lots of dropped calls. Nearest Verizon tower is at 7th St.and Greenway (next to the Verizon store of course), about a half mile from me, you'd think the reception would be better..

Can't get any reception until I get out of my apartment. The T-Mobile Internet sucks everywhere. Very slow.

In our home we get very little or no reception. Tons of dropped calls if they do come through.Texting seems to be ok, (less signal required), but if you use your phone to talk, it's worthless in our home. The Motorola v557phone goes dead in 1 / 2 a day because it's says "Emergency Only" all the time in our house. ATT says we're right in the middle between two towers, but the coverage stinks. Had Alltel a few years ago and that was slightly better, but not much.

No recpetion at home, Fountain Hills, very spotty in all the valley. Verizon will be my next try. Speaking to my neighbors I know it will at least work in my home.

Off 44th St.No of Elliot, next to So Mountain preserve. Terrible Verizon reception. Drops every call. Used to be good here up to a year ago. Think it's because they've elimated analog backup. My wife's phone on Verizon - same. New phone on Verizon -- same. They ran a trouble ticket, tech said "yep, no service". They're letting me out of my contract. GREAT reception EVERYWHERE else -- Phoenix or nationally.

I have had Cingular since it was AT&T in this area. Reception in my home is almost useless. Reception in other areas is spotty. Switching phones helped a little, but not much. I am hoping that T Mobile is better in Phoenix.

I used to have T-Mobile for years and reception was great all over Phoenix, and had great customer service. Made the mistake of switching to Cingular a few months ago for PTT and their reception is bad-to-terrible all over town - even after trying 3 different phones, one Samsung and two Sony Ericcsons. We have 2 family plans with 8 people and all agree that Cingular is terrible so now we're trying to find a way out of the 2yr contract. Customer service is not as good with Cingular either - they are okay once you get through, but be prepared for some looooong hold times. I love my w810i phone, but hate Cingular's reception!
