5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Wyoming and Paseo Del Norte Ne, Albuquerque, NM 87109 |

I have been with Alltel under various names since 1991. Most of the people I work with are with Verizon, between Albquerque and Taos, Alltel has constantly given me good coverage. In agreement with another review though, Wyoming and Osuna is a dead spot and will drop any call in progress. Must be the Police sub-station I have guessed.

Drop calls in side house and the only way to receive a call is to be by a window, very bad location for Cingular phones. If you go out side of house to the east singal is fine.

Very pleased with Verizon's coverage. No major problem in Abq. A few dropped calls here and there but overall very good service. I travel to rural areas in New Mexico and get service where even the coverage map shows no service.

I have had Sprint for several years and been locked into contracts because of new phone upgrades, but they have horrible service all over Albuquerque. I drop calls all the time at I-25 / Candelaria and I-40 / 12th, many places off of Irving west of Coors BLVD, I-40 / 98th, and the most frustrating of all, in my home, in the SW heights, reception is the worst. Sitting in my home and not even moving, the call drops. Steer away from Sprint in ABQ. Check the number of Sprint complaints in this forum.

I've had pretty decent coverage with T-Mobile. I've never had a dropped call in Albuquerque on T-Mobile. I will admit their coverage outside of the city is kind of spotty, and, at points, I will go roaming on Cingular while outside of the city.

Use both cellphone and aircard for internet and get a very good useable signal all over town. Air card never drops out, cellphone will drop sometimes.

Tried them all over the past 8 years... Verizon, Tmobile, Alltel, Sprint, Cricket, and now Cingular... I do business all over Albuquerque and Cingular is by far the best!

guess living next to the petroglyph has it's advantages and disadvantages, cell reception is #1 on the disadvantage list! 1 BAR and repeated dropped calls!

T- Mobile reps informed Los Ranchos ressidents that T-Mobile actually needs towers EVERY SQUARE MILE in the Albuquerque metro area. Who is calling who selfish?

Cingular reception is not very good up here. Standing outside in the open air I get from three to four bars, but the minute I walk into a building the signal drops to one or no bars. If I am in my office and people call me, I can usually hear them, but they hear a broken version of what I say to them. Verizon seems to have a ton of towers in the Far NE Heights... would recommed them instead of Cingular for this area.
