2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Oracle | Magee, Tucson, AZ 85704 |

I've been with AT&T since they first offered nationwide service. I've carried the same calling plan for years - no one offers anything comparable now for price / minutes, so I've held on. But in the last couple of years AT&T service / reception has deteriorated so badly that I'm looking to switch, plus current Siemens phone is the worst I've ever had. I can't even get reception at the AT&T store near Tucson Mall, and constant dropped calls or poor reception at home. Problem is I can't keep same plan/phone# (according to AT&T) if I switch to anything other than an AT&T phone, but try to find one now.

I get no reception inside or outside my home. Service for the next few square miles is very splotchy, I can't place or recieve calls while driving until I reach Swan and Sunrise, or Skyline and Campbell on the other side. Once in town the signal is fine. I was told that my home was in their coverage area when I signed up. Customer service has been very poor, and have offered no solution.

Cingular service is not a good wireless provider even though they claim they have a "All Over Network" in thier marketing. They say they merged but still require to buy new Cingular phones if you choose to migrate over, which is crap. You can't even buy ATT wireless phones or parts at the local The New Cingular Store anymore. They have bad customer service and sell crap phones like the Motorola V220. Take my advice and go the Verizon route. Better phones without the confusing merger crap to deal with.

I have to go out side our home to make a call. We travel (I do temporary work) and have had trouble in Union City, CA and Longmont, CO. Seattle is better. The nation wide plan is the only reason we keep ATT.

I don't have many complaints about Sprint reception around Tucson. It can get spotty in the foothills (e.g. on Sunrise past Swan), but in town I can always get reception, even inside buildings.

Almost always drop calls near Kolb and Valencia. Also, can never get a decent signal in any of the malls.

T-Mobile service is a joke. At my house I get 1-2 bars inside or outside. That seems to be enough to make a call, but nobody can understand me because it breaks up so badly. Complaints to customer service do nothing but aggravate me. They offered a one-time "goodwill" refund of $11 for 8-days of no coverage, but then feel that they have done their part even thought the phone still can't be used for anything. I work out of a home office, so spend 95% of my time in a place where calls can't be made. Strangely enough, it worked some of the time for the first few weeks, but I haven't been able to talk on it from home for almost a month now.

I have been very disappointed in the reception so far with the GSM netowrk. In the northeast it becomes spotty at best. Also the reception in the Park Mall is poor. When I went to the AT&T store they told me there are problems with the coverage but could not tell me when it will get better. Very frustrating... never had this trouble with TDMA.

Since purchasing my home in Tucson, I have been very dissapointed in the service from T-Mobile. Unfortunately, when I signed up for a year of service I was out on the east coast where coverage is good but not great by any means. However, acceptable.
