T-Mobile

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Lomas | Washington, Albuquerque, NM 87108 |

I live right south of Zia School (Nob Hill) and I have the worst reception. Not too many dropped calls, but people can almost never understand me. It is especially bad when I call people on other networks or landlines. They are trying to troubleshoot, but after reading the comments in this forum, I don't have that much hope. I'll update though, should something change. The area affected seems to be between Lomas and Central and Washington and San Mateo (N-S and W-E). I am going to keep complaining about this, because even outside the building it's not working too well.

Major streets are also rarely a problem.

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Rio Grande | Chavez, Albuquerque, NM 87107 |

The Los Ranchos de Albuquerque village has a one square mile dead hole for cellular service at the intersection. Do not get T-Mobile as a provider if you live in Los Ranchos! Los Ranchos is attenpting to contract with cell providers to put in a tower but selfish homeowners nearby are trying to block it 08 / 06

Cricket

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Taylor Ranch Area, Albuquerque, NM 87120 |

Very pleased with reception except on Golf Course Rd.south of Paseo del Norte. Sometimes drop signal on Coors near Paseo as well. No big deal, since unlimited minutes with Cricket! TravelTime using FlexBucket is good feature for occasional out-of-town travel. Customer service and tech support are NOT good, and any changes to account can result in loss of previous pricing agreements (even if the agent assures you it won't cause you to lose previous discounts). Overall, very pleased with value and reception. Customer for nearly 2 years. Whole family uses Cricket instead of having a landline. We keep considering other plans (since no contract), but nothing comes close to matching Cricket's unlimited plans!

Like a previous poster has said: reception in Nob Hill on T-Mobile has been getting steadily worse. I can no longer use my cell phone in my home and am currently attempting to get out of my contract. Something has definitely changed, but T-Mobile doesn't seem to know it and keeps telling me, and my friends, that we are in a good coverage area. Bizarre.

Alltel

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Unser / Arenal | Sage, Albuquerque, NM 87121 |

I have been with AllTel in ABQ for 8.5 years and have been relatively happy. Coverage and service around the metro area has been excellent. Also, cell coverage and service in Las Vegas, NV, Wash., DC, NY, NY, Philadelphia, PA, Salt Lake City, UT, throughout California, Arizona and everywhere else I've been in the continental USA has been GREAT. My current 2-year contract with AllTel is close to expiring and I was looking at carrier / service incentives, considering switching to a another carrier who might have more aggressive incentives. However, after reviewing this Website and seeing the comments on other carriers, I'm now very seriously considering staying with AllTel because of their better cell coverage, inter-carrier roaming agreements and overall service quality.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | West of the River (I-40) | Unser, Albuquerque, NM 87121 |

Have lots of dropped calls anywhere West of the River. May have full singal and then poof gone. The claim it is due to the towers at Central and Paseo Los Valcons. I believe they have terrible coverage for ABQ area. The phones in Tucson and back in VA are working without a problem. Sprint Needs to upgrade their network here in ABQ.
