Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | SilverBell | Camino D. Cerro, Tucson, AZ 85745 |

Sprint was quite satifactory (not great) when I lived / worked in the N.E. United States. But, now having moved here to Tucson, I find I am frequently cut off. I also experience a high level of call latency (delay between talkers). I'll probably switch soon, but I do have to concede that Sprint does an OK job with the PCS data side of things. In otherwords, I use my phone as a modem and it works quite well for the price. Lastly, signal strength on my phone seems to not be much of a indication as to how well my call will sound.

No reception problems fixed I can see! I've been with them for five years. These guys are very rude and not helpfull. I drop calls all day as I drive all over Tucson with my current job. I'm stuck because of huge cancellation fees and phones that break forcing me to renew. I'm so glad Cingular is here. I think I will like them better.

T-Mobile

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 22nd | Kolb, Tucson, AZ 85710 |

Calls drop everytime at 22nd / Kolb area, also Speedway / Kolb and several places in Sierra Vista as well. Had the Motorola replaced, didn't help a bit. T-Mobile said they would investigate, yeah right. They won't let me out of contract because "it works in your home." They said they would credit me minutes... I don't need minutes, I need cell phone service that works!

I had a Motorola Startac and was having a lot of trouble with dropped calls, especially in the morning. My daughter visited with a Motorola V265 and had perfect reception, call clarity, etc., on Verizon, so I replaced my phone with a Motorola V265. I have MORE problems with reception, dropped calls, call clarity, etc. now than ever before. I don't believe it's the phone (my original phone was replaced and I still have the same problems with the replacement). The problem is Alltel's network. When this contract expires, I'm signing up with Verizon, unless Alltel gets the problem corrected!

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Harrison / Brdway, Tucson, AZ 85710 |

My expereience with Cingular in Tucson hasn't been all that bad, pretty consistent fair to good coverage all over Tucson, with some noteable exceptions: weak reception (sometimes) on east Broadway, Old Spanish Trail near Cmno Loma Alto, River near Flowing wells park. But really, overall not bad, and my family, nationwide plan is comparatively inexpensive.

Moved here from Chicago where Sprint was great - Tucson has little to no reception all around the city. Constantly dropped calls or could get no signal to begin with.

The Rita Ranch area appears to be a huge hole in T-Mobile coverage. My Cingular v180 gets 2-3 bars at the Fry's, but T-Mobile is no service.

You can never go wrong with ALLTEL, unless you live out in Vail or Sahuarita. Other than that it works everywhere!

Low signal strength in Foothills area. Usually get 2-3 bars at home in Finisterra (unless blocked by a hill in which case there is no signal strength). 2-3 bars is enough to get good reception, but I only get this in certain locations at home.

Have to go on front porch to get good reception. Elsewhere, no problem. Will try a new phone soon.
