I'm very happy with Cingular's coverage all over Jacksonville. I have homes in Orange Park and Ponte Vedra and work in Southside - very rarely find myself with poor coverage.

Calls go to VM without ever being received on phone- not reflected in "missed messages" or "incoming messages". VM takes up to ten minutes to post to mailbox. Sometimes notice of VM message received, sometimes VM are in mailbox with no notification. Signal varies from good to non-existent for no rhymn or reason throughout Duval. Contract up next month and I'm outta there- no more Sprint for me.

Ok, here's the skinny on reception in Girvin Road. It is horrible no matter the carrier due to the swamp, the landfill and the where it is located in the flight pattern. We experienced signal flux no matter who we were with (my family has had service with all the carriers listed above while living in this area. They all have had poor service in this area of town, They all dropped calls on Girvin.). This not a reflection on the carriers but rather the location. Yes, it is a frustrating situation. I travel the entire width of Jacksonville and have found over the past five years that Cingular has the most consistent service. They also perform well in the less populated areas along the road to Gainesville and Pensacola. T-Mobile also performs well. However, T-Mobile does suffer from signal flux along the intercostals between Mayport and Fernandina. This is not good if you are using your cell phone as a safety precaution while at our state parks.

Today is 5 / 26. Signal was fine 2 - 3 bars until 5 / 19. Now only 1-2 until I try to make a call then 0-1 bars, mostly 0 bars, conversation breaks up, miss 1 / 2 of the words. Called Cingular on 5 / 24 - said for some reason my phone did not recieve a recent software update. asked me to turn my phone off and on and off. Then asked me to turn it on and leave it on all night so software could be downloaded. Problem still exists. Will call them again. Wish me luck!

Verizon Wireless has the best reception in my opinion. I've had Alltel before too and I had good cell reception from Alltel at work (Riverside area) but decent cell reception at home (Westside area). With my LG-VX6000 cell phone on the Verizon Wireless network, I can usually get 4 bars both at work and at home.

Frequently without reception at house, especially inside - frequently drop calls around town.

I have a treo 650 smartphone with Cingular but it drops my call everytime I drive down Girvin Rd. going towards atlantic blvd. I seem to have this problem all in this area of Jacksonville. Also, reception is absolutley horrible while in the downtown area. My Mom and Sister have the same problems with cingular. We are seriously thinking about switching to Verizon.

I want to compliment T-Mobile. (Wow, someone saying something good?!) I've had my service for a year now and get really good perception even in places where others don't! I have my spots but it's due mostly to the military where I work and not T-Mobile. It's a little choppy going over the intercoastal bridges but it doesn't drop off.

Cingular sucks. Everywhere but under raido towers. STAY AWAY from them in Jacksonville.
