4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Chandler Blvd. | 5th Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85045 |

I Live in an area called Dove Canyon, I get great reception at my home from my Alltel service. My wife and daughter get little or no service at my home with their providers, Sprint and Cingular. T-Mobile does not come in at my home either.

The reception here is horrible in the South Mountain area. I am forever dropping calls. I was told Alltel was going to put a tower at 24th and Baseline but so far nothing.

I got Cingular because of the "raising the bar" advertisment. I have to say that their advertisment is false. What "raising the bar" it's more like losing the bar. Whenever I am inside the house I have absolutely no service. I can't make a call inside nor outside of the house. I have to go at least 2 miles out of the area to get 1 bar of reception.

Good reception most of the time. Drops calls inside of buildings. My complaint is the billing cycle and the billing practices.You change anything with this company it is extra$$$$$. If you try to change something about the phone like the plan or the number on any day but the end of your cycle date, they charge you for each call previous to your change. They also change the end of your contract date if you change your plan. They add more months. So ask about this before you change your plan. They also add on a $10.00 Verizon surcharge for whatever fees each month. They charge for some toll free calls. I am looking for a new carrier. I am sick of paying so many extra charges when they advertised a certain price for a certain number of minutes. This is the only real complaint I have about this company, but it has lost my business today.

I've found Verizon to continually have the best service out there. Having driven several times across I-10 to and from the CA coast, even where most phones go dead in the vast desert areas, Verizon has some dead spots but not nearly as bad as other carriers. Recently my hubby drove to AZ from Indiana, during the entire 3 day trip there was only maybe 2-3 hrs (mostly in mountain areas) where he didn't have coverage.

Fluctuates between 0-3 bars - mostly 0 to 1... Very disappointed with service level - too many dropped calls. Neighbors also constantly complaining... ...

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Townhome | 7th St. and Bell, Phoenix, AZ 85022 |

Used two types of Samsung phones: Sch 3500 and Sch 8500. For the last 10 years I have experienced good reception on both phones. I don't have a hard-line in my townhouse so I use my cell phone as my exclusive service. I haven't experienced any dropped calls or problems in any room in my town home or when in use through-out the valley. But perhaps because I use my phone less frequently and do not use the phone as a business phone my experience has been unique.

It all comes down to this. My phone gets 3 bars at my house. My wifes phone gets 4-5 bars in the same location. It is the phone and the antenna that the phone has that makes reception good. I have travelled all over the U.S.A. with AT&T One Rate and had good and bad reception. I had a Nokia phone and it recieved when no other one would. The main thing to look for is the right "perks". For me I don't want to go over minutes, not worry about teenagers overtexting, and have a reasonable coverage area so I can talk to my daughter at college. I have just went and researched all the companies in my area and I think I will stick with Cingular for now because thier plans fit me.

Very good coverage. I did not expect much since they are pretty much a low cost provider but, my service has been better than Sprint and Verizon in the Phoenix Metro area.

Sprint's coverage in my area is inexplicably bad. I have to go outside to not drop calls. I have no problems anywhere else, but around my home it's terrible.

General reception in Ahwatukee is terrible. Cannot use in my home and service is really sketchy in my neighborhood. I'm emabarrassed to use my phone in these areas. Service has not improved in 5 years. Don't expect it to anytime soon. My contracts have expired and I'm switching to Verizon. Even though their plans are not as good as T-Mobile's I can use their service from my basement and hear much less that is negative about Verizon's service. Oh yeah, Cingular's Customer Service is even worse thn AT&T Wireless' ever was! - And AWS customer care was pretty bad...

Dropped calls in a high rise in Honolulu, but it was fine on the lanai. Never had a problem in AZ, good reception everywhere for me. Good value if u don't use a cell much! (Can't beat $5 a month!)
