horrible horrible horrible! I get absolutely no reception! And when I am lucky and get one to three bars, the call quickly "fails". Worst cell phone provider ever. Oh yeah, and their "best coverage" ad campaign is a huge lie.

Something good has happened in the past few days. Now getting 3G reception indoors (1-2 bars). Outside is much stronger. It appears that something positive has been done by AT&T in our area recently.

I found out from AT&T's (Cingular) own website that my reception is poor with where I live. I wished I had this tool two years ago before I was locked in a two year contract. The cell phone service was virtually useless because I can't call anyone without major frustration with frustration. Too many dropped calls. Definitely switching to Verizon as soon as contract is completed.

Reception on AT&T all throughout the Valley is completely hit or miss, plus even when you do have signal you're lucky to be able to make a call. Even though they claim I have 3G coverage here, I don't get any 3G, only 1 bar of EDGE if I am lucky. At home I have to hold my AT&T phones up to the window to get service, doesn't matter which model I use, I have 6 or 7 different AT&T phones and they all get horrible reception.

Cingular has TERRIBLE reception in the area near Santa Clara University. Whenever I'm indoors, I always get dropped called, which is kind of ironic since Cingular's ads always say that they have the least dropped calls. Furthermore, whenever I try to call someone, I have to try countless times before I even manage to call through. When I eventually manage to get through, the reception is VERY bad and I can hardly hear what the other person is saying. It just sounds like this, "Hello? *insert 5 seconds of NOTHINGNESS* Hello? *insert another 5 seconds of hearing absolutely nothing at all* HELLO?? ARE YOU THERE? *gets disconnected*" I'm definitely switching to Verizon or T-Mobile. Shame on you, Cingular!

I used to have good reception for the longest time since i've been a Cingular customer but for the past 2 months i've have bad or almost no reception even in my open backyard. I usually have to walk out onto the street to get 2-3 bars to get my voicemails since nobody can call me when I don't have reception so my phone can't even register a missed call for me to get back to them. I called AT&T and apparently about 2 months ago they stopped paying T-Mobile to allow its users to roam off the T-Mobile towers, so until enough people call in and complain to AT&T so that they can fill in a form of complaint, they are not going to reverse their decision, and bad reception is all we're gonna get. I feel so cheated for paying for a service i'm not even getting!

Very spotty in the house. Calls go in and out frequently. Have to go outdoors to get better reception. AT&T, put a tower in our area!
