1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Tison / Butch Baine, Jacksonville, FL 32218 |

When Cingular was Cingular we had great reception. As soon as they sold out to AT&T the phone service will not work in the house - unless I stand in my closet or go outside.

No outgoing service in home, has to go outside, into garage, or pation or to driveway, to make a call... this is ridiculous for the money that I pay each month, just insanely absurd...

I have had three Samsung SGH807D cell phones and my wife has had two Samsung SGH407D phones with AT&T. My wife and I get very poor service either at home or while I am at work aboard NAS Jacksonville Fl. We both suffer from frequent dropped calls or loss of service entirely. Even when we are traveling down the road we lose connection. When calling each other while I am at work and she is on the road we can not reach each other and even leaving a message sometimes takes several hours for that message to reach the other.

This phone service is so unreliable! I never know when I will drop a call. So much for safety issues. I may have a signal at home and then it drops it with no warning. I can be talking to someone on the road to my home and the minute I get to my driveway, it's dropped. I cannot believe that Sprint has any customers anymore. Why do they say they are providing a service. It is inferior service and needs to be improved! What's funny though is that my husband is so loyal to this company! We have to go outside in the backyard if we want to take a call on our cell phones. It's not the phones-it's the carrier! Suckie Sprint!

Nextel

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Atlantic Blvd. | Kernan Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32246 |

Terrible. Same poor service from FL to VA. Can't believe our clients still want to use us since they might have to endure 4 to 6 dropped calls during any 10-20 minute conversation. Our contract is up and so is our 7 yr patronage to Nextel (now Sprint). FYI: service was not so great before Sprint bought it out, but now most dropped calls are because Sprint got greedy and oversold the capabilities of the limited towers that service Nextel. We are in construction and are joining the hundreds of contractors abandoning Nextel, especially since other plans now offer Push to Talk or phone only plans. Congrats Sprint--you pushed Nextel into the grave!

Sprint's reception is extremely substandard on the Southside of Jacksonville unless you are within a stones throw of a store (sometimes that does not help). I receive less than decent service at home and I roam at UNF. I cannot image roaming at a university with over 15,000 students. I truly believe Sprint does not have a clue.

Have lousey reception- which is a major problem since my cell phone is an important part of my business. Am thinking that it will be worth the $400 penalty for my husband's and my phone to get out of the contract.

Geat service. I travel around the country and it's great. Good thing about Cingular is that it works in other countries. Only Cingular and T-Mobile work out of the country. Even though sometimes I only have two bars, it's still clear!

Dead spots on JTB and 95 around Emerson. Also between Deerwood and Publix on Baymeadows (east of Southside) there is a dead spot. Difficulty getting a signal indoors. I've noticed some folks are able to talk on their phones while in the elevator at the Bank of America location by the Avenues: not sure what their carrier is (different protocol used). All in all I am very happy with Cingular as I travel all around Jacksonville and North Florida: signal strength is normally 4 bars. In turn, I have been on Nextel and Sprint and bother were horrible. T-Mobile and Verizon are also good choices.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | First Coast Highschool, Jacksonville, FL 32218 |

Very poor reception. Without moving I can go from 3 (at best) to 0 bars in just a few minutes time. Dropped calls with T-Mobile service is a common occurence for us, so much so, that my family and friends all know to just wait until I get in my car to drive to find bars before I can call them on the cell again. Called T-Mobile, they have no plans for improvement in the area. Other T-Mobile customers in the area (all 4 of us) HA! Have the same complaint... can't use the cell in our own homes. Neighbors with Cingular can get service ANYWHERE in the area.

Reception sucks in downtown Jacksonville on my phone. Half the time it shows as ROAMING and then I have to dial 1 plus the area code to call anyone!

I live in Shady Pines and my cell phone often changes to roaming inside my own home. At least I get service at home. At work, off of 103rd and I-275, I rarely even get roaming. Bottom line: It's not just Cingular with bad connections. I have Verizon.

I have been using Cingular for many, many years now and very rarely have a problem. And when I do, I call in and they get it fixed in a matter of a day or two. I switched to the new high speed broadband system and use the video feature a lot. I find it very entertaining and the reception always works no matter if i'm inside my home or out walking the dog. highly recommend Cingular if you are having a problem with your carrier. my wife had Verizon and was having terrible service especially at home. she switched to cingualr when I upgraded to the blackjack and we both are very happy...

Signal drops significantly between I-95 and 5 points on Riverside Avenue. It's done this for years.

I always drop calls at this intersection. Coverage around the rest of Jacksonville is good for the most part.

Compared to my friends and family, Sprint, with this phone does a tremendous job. After owning several Motorola POS phones, I can say that the equipment *does make a difference*.

Can get a signal at the house usually a 3 or 4 bar until you press send then it goes down. 90% of time we get disconnected. Cingular sent new sim card and it didn't do a single thing. Tried boosters and they don't work either. It's never the same, one time you can get a signal standing on your head in the kitchen, the other day not. Cingulars Billing is absolulty crazy. I had to call them every month for the first 7 month because they were trying to bill me for something like going over my minute because they charged me for Mobile to mobile. Or charging roaming fee's for checking your voice mail. I have good service most placed in West side / OP area but not in Walmart or some spots on base. Watch their billing they are sneaky!

When at home I have to keep my phone on roaming to get any chance of a signal. All other cell providers get a great signal. Sprint replaced my phone but the signal of course did not improve. I have about 4 towers within 2 miles of my apartment, does not matter. I miss a lot of calls. I have become the customer from Hell. Although it does have its advantages, I can always tell someone I didn't have my phone on roaming so I missed their call. It's pretty bad when you are calling Sprint and the call is dropped. It's funny how I was two miles OFF the coast and I had a full signal with no roaming. Things that make you think... .
