1 Out of 5 (1 star) | W Giles Rd. | 168th, Omaha, NE 68136 |

I generally got no reception indoors. If I did the cell phone dance and waited for a bit, I could usually get enough signal to make a call. On the upside, once I found enough signal to let me make a call the call didn't get dropped even if the phone would say no signal when I was done. Outside in the area I'm guessing is facing the tower I generally got enough service to make calls, but it was iffy. T-mobile's coverage map says you get "Good" coverage here. I would not call this good coverage, although it is accurate by their description of good. "You will likely be able to place calls outdoors, in a car, and occasionally indoors." That's still not good enough for me. Looks like I will have to switch to Verizon like everyone else.

I have been scratching my heads over this. I used to have spotty converage with this pre-paid T-Mobile that I brought with me from Seattle (425 area code). For last few months I have been taking this phone to 68144, 68182, 68127 areas and haven't seen one blip of the signal. I thought my cell phone was dead so tried other (unlocked) cell phones but no go. Oh, well, I guess T-Mobile doesn't work in Omaha... AT&T has decent coverage (my other phone) but looking for something better.

This is the worst service I have ever had. I would be better off using a shortwave radio. I have not been able to complete a phone call in over a year while sitting in my home. It may take two minutes, it may take ten - but your call WILL get dropped. My wife has an iPhone 3G as well, and has the same problems. We are selling our phones, and switching to another carrier due to the terrible network.

I live out west (156th and Center). Coverage downtown with the iPhone is usually pretty good. Coverage at home and west of that is terrible. Little-no coverage at 168th and on west towards heading out of town. AT&T map says there is a tower by our place and we are just out of range of it. If I'm in the basement, I cannot get signal. Upstairs, I occasionally do but sometimes get dropped calls as well.

I live at 104th and Center about 6 blocks south of Center Verizon service is terrible in this area and they have acknowledged that they can not guarantee coverage so beware!

I spent a week trying to resolve the issue with Sprint and my cell phone. Cox told me it could be that my phone was listed in the 402 area code but not in Omaha. Turned out to be true, but Sprint denied that could be the case. I spoke with Joseph, Cesar, Loren,etc. at the main Sprint number, several people at the 114th Dodge location and people at the 90th Fort location. Sprint kept my phone and when it was returned it worked for a couple of days, then nothing. Took it back and the battery was dead and the port to recharge was also broken. These things were fine when I dropped the phone off. The phone is old but had been working fine. Strange timing. I have discarded my phone and will be looking for new service. I asked for comment cards regarding customer service and was told those had to come from the company and were done by phone and no comment cards were available. One person was willing to help if I extended my contract for two years. I can't consider extending a contract with the poor service and people who can not be trusted.

I just posted about my crappy T-Mobile service and realized that my pc put in 2000 as the year, the year is actually 2009. This is all current as of 10 / 03 / 2009 so do not get TMOBILE! Dan the supervisor said that he is honoring the statements that Daniel gave me just 2 days before, and that Daniel will be coached because he gave me incorrect information. I have a co-worker who moved from KC (where T-Mobile has coverage) to Omaha, it took him 3 months of documenting dropped calls before he could get out of his contract. Be leary of ever signing a contract with them. T-Mobile sold pre-paid phones at Best Buy and Walmart before the better business bureau cracked down on them. When people went to activate them, they realized that their area codes would be 816 or some other long distant number. They will lie to hold you responsible for a contract!

T-Mobile claims to have service here but they do not. Their coverage map shows decent coverage in omaha but in reality they only have service on interstates and major highways (Dodge / maple / center streets) and they use AT&T's network for it. They won't roam anywhere off the major roads. TERRIBLE. And they also do not have local phone numbers. If you buy a prepaid phone from Walmart or somewhere it gives you an area code from Virgin islands or some weird place.

I really wanted my Us cellular phone to work for me at work, but I have come to realize it just doesn't. When I walk down the hallway on the 3rd floor I can hear it chiming that I am entering a service area. When I look at the phone - no bars! Not good when you miss an emergency phone call and your kids have to call a neighbor. That makes you look bad for life! You can't even leave a voicemail, and if you are lucky enough to leave a vm, I can't listen to it because 'no service'. I just may go without a cell phone and forget about it for a year or two. Very discontent in Omaha.

Apparently when Cingular bought AT&T all they took was their name. Certainly their service is substandard.

Trying to be dispassionate, ATT does not work in this area. It also doesn't appear to work in a variety of other Omaha areas. Ive lived in this area for 5 years and must have ATT for work and it has actually gotten worse lately, capacity? who knows. For giggles, I bought a boost / nextel phone to see if it was me or the Samsung phone I am using ( which I really like ) and the Boost / Nextel phone works flawlessly even in my basement etc.

I switched to AT&T to get the iphone... .Bad mistake! I rarely can make it through a call without it being dropped. Making a call from a building... .forget about it. I even have dropped calls while driving under a 2 lane overpass.

Sprint usually delivers good reception throughout Omaha. The issues with Sprint are their lack of quality phones. Every cool phone on the market (iphone, blackberry bold, blackberry storm, etc) is not available on the Sprint network. The only decent phones they do have, they usually get them months or years afters carriers like AT&T and Verizon have had them. THIS IS INEXCUSABLE! As a customer I should not have to accept that my carrier, that I pay good money to, refuses to spend the money necessary to get the rights to the top end phones. This is the main reason that Sprint is losing thousands of customers every month. They have yet to understand that they can have the good reception and cheap rates, but with no quality phones people are going to leave. Step up Sprint, or get ready to file for bankruptcy.

They slold me the phones and the service without ever mentioning that they do not have a 402- area code. I get my phone and it is a 660- area code. That is MO. Bad service also... T-mobile is a Joke DO NOT GET T-MOBILE.

Perfect service from oak view area and in general around town. Using boost mobile actually. Its really rather good reception. No dropped calls in a month ( or maybe one ) which was completely different than my experience with AT&T

Reception is 4-5 bars most of the time. Even when I'm right next to a tower (US Cell told me where the towers were in my home area), it won't get full service, which is weird. But when I leave my home area it roams on verizon, which is the best partner to have. And if there's no Verizon available, it roams on alltel. Great roaming coverage for occasional trips.

Signal bounces heavily, from 5 bars to 0 bars (but always holds a signal). Since 3G came out, it's been 1-2 bars. Before then, it was 4-5 bars. AT&T said it was a problem with the phone. Yeah, right.
