0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Golf Course | Irving, Albuquerque, NM 87114 |

Spint has pitiful coverage at best through out the west side but Golf Course and Irving you get nada. Don't bother calling Sprint on it. They have heard it all before and don't care.

T-Mobile is OK for the most part. Reception is good most of the time. Many dropped calls over the last five years. Phones are way out of date, even the new ones need faster processors.

Verizon reception varies in the house, but standing near SW window gives the best, up to 4 bars. Also have Verizon LG-VX-8300 phones and Sprint BlackBerry 8703e. Sprint is even worse than Verizon for reception and dropped calls in this neighborhood.

The service is great in the foothills. We started with Alltel when we lived in Gallup and have found that the reception across the state is equal to Verizon and surpasses all the others. If you are going to buy phones, you get a big price break by purchasing on-line as opposed to buying from the nearby stores, on Paseo del Norte or even at ABQ Uptown.

I have had Sprint for several years and I too have been locked into an iron maiden contract with them. I am NOT happy with Sprint nor there "customer service". I actually live next to a cell tower (don't know who's it is) but I can't even make a call from my house! When I do connect it promptly drops my call! Frustrating! Not to mention the prices and the contracts! I am not satisfied with Sprint at all and as soon as I sell my first born I will break the contract and go with Verizon. Sprint away from this Cell Phone Service Provider!

My cell works great all over Abq although I have expirenced one dead spot. It's just as you pass Sandia Casino on Tramway headed up to the heights. Other than that one spot I'm great! I even use my treo as a modem from home and I connect with all bars up!

I live smack in the middle of Albuquerque, near the illustrious ABQ Uptown shopping center, just south of the old Winrock complex. I have had trouble with weak signals for years in this location I have lived here for 6 yrs and have always had trouble getting a strong signal to place or receive a call. I am also in a "fantastic" coverage area as well as on the second floor of my apartment complex with no other floors above me. You'd think I'd get primo reception however this is not the case. Apparently all cell phone companies suck no matter where you are!

Two of us had tri-mode phones while vacationing at Valle Escondido (half way between Taos and Angel Fire). Neither one of us could get coverage in this area, not even on roaming. We drove over to Angel Fire one evening, and still didn't get any coverage, both analog and digital were nonexistant.

Qwest service is mediocre at best. I roam all over Albuquerque. I hunt and fish and go off of the beaten path and never get service. Now this would not be a big deal and is expected but when I go with family and friends who have a different service they have coverage and I don't. I don't recommend Qwest if you are going to base your decision on reception.

In and around the house the reception is very poor and usually drops calls. There is only a couple of places inside the house to complete a call.
