Generally VERY good reception. A few dead spots - part of John Belk Frwy and part of Independence near uptown when windy / rainy. Radio (walkie-talkie, touch to talk, etc) can be VERY frustrating sometimes, though.

No reception at UNCC unless my phone switches to Cingular... and its still horrible. I live in a townhouse off N. Tryon and it only works in my living room. If I'm lucky my phone might ring in other parts of the townhouse, but I don't even bother answering anymore. Both my roommates have Verizon and they have fabulous reception. :(

I have to walk outside my house to get service! I drop at least two calls a day.

If I go anywhere within 100 yards away from the building, service is OK. It's just in the building and on the grounds that the reception is dead.

No trouble with reception. Not sure of the model of this Motorola, but it is a "Tri-mode", which I gather means both digital and analog. I get 5 bars both inside and out. On rare occasions there is some echo that is annoying. Interesting sidebar: When speaking to someone else who is ALSO on a cell phone there can be a slight delay that throws off the timing of the conversation just a hair, so that you end up talking over the beginning of each other's words. With someone you know well, and speak with often, it's a noticable difference. Whether that is a function of the cell phones, the network, or the sunspots that day -- I have no idea. But it's one reason I would never give up my land line.

Reception is non-existant where I work at TIAA-CREF, and random everywhere else around the University area. Some areas in my apartment work great, others suck. Don't even know why I have a cell phone with reception this bad.

Cell phone reception at my home and at UNCC is terrible. Phone says it has 3 bars of signal but when you actually make a call it often drops to 0-1 bars. Calls dropped frequently.

Dead spot in the entire neighborhood. Dosen't seem to matter who the carrier is and the company (Verizon) states the dead spot, while in South Charlotte, is related to several parks surrounding the subdivision. Even tried an external antenna with no success.

This phone didn't get any service at all at my house, even if I tried to go outside to get reception it still wouldn't work.
