I get reception, but the problem is the neighbors or someone is networked to me and it doesn't matter if I use a cell or a landline they still can listen and capture calls, block them or slam them. They might listen to the beginning of the message that I might get and then take the call themselves. It is very upsetting because it is impossible to know who I am speaking with. I am concerned about private businesses that call gettig their voice mail taken from them and recorded. They then sometimes go to the offices or places of business and either break in or bribe the owners.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon denies the problem but inside this bldg, EVEN next to the window, reception is poor. There iS ONE spot under a skylight, where everyone goes to get their calls if a VZW user. OTOH, ATT users seem to have no problem. So it AINT THE BLDG.Was this review helpful to you?

I've used my Slice in just about every enviroment, from NJ to NC, and the reception is very good. I get clear conversations in basements and woodsy area's (even NJ's Pinelands). The only 1 (and I do mean 1) area I have HORRIBLE service, is on Rt.130 south and Kinkora rd. I believe its from the concrete plant because, they are loaded with all types of metel. Other than that, I have no complants whats so ever. No contract with Virgin Mobile. I pay $35.00 per month for 300 anytime mins, 1000 night and wknds, and penny txt. They have other plan options, but this was good enough for me. And you can pay $5.00 per month for unlimited web.Was this review helpful to you?

3-4 bars, almost anywhere in the US. Only exception ever was in central GA in Nov 2004.Was this review helpful to you?
I drive all over for a living. New Jersey is by far the worst place to own any cell phone because of the laws and restrictions for towers. Since I owned a Nextel one year ago the service has dramatically improved and I now get reception almost always. Some places in Northern Burlington County will not get reception in part due to Fort Dix and McGuire AFB, although it has gotten much better. I also drive from 95 south / New Hope., PA to Belmar on I-295 all the time. Some times I have problems with dropping calls while driving around SH 38 junction on I-295, seems as if it is switching towers? If someone with verizon or sprint calls me I can hardly hear them becaus they are so unclear. If someone calls from another Nextel its as clear as a landline. Hope this helps.Was this review helpful to you?
constant 5 bars with this phone the flips i have had previously are totally worthless for signal strength went back to the candy bar style with the sanyo scp4900 and love it. i believe the reason most people lose signal is their weak flip phones just dont cut it. i used to lose signal in my basement even with the new samsung a-500 this sanyo pulls 4-5 bars constantly a lot of people complain about sprint pcs service but i will say this, on my multiple trips to myrtle beach SC there are only 2 spots where i lost digital signal with the flips 1 in NC and the other on 501 in SC. looking forward to my next trip so i can see how this new phone isWas this review helpful to you?
