Lots of missed / dropped calls, especially anywhere inside a building. I rarely get more than three bars anywhere in NE Albuquerque, and often less. Sprint coverage is basically non-existent outside Albuquerque except right on the interstates. Roaming coverage works ok but is heinously expensive. I am looking for a new provider.

My wife and I recently purchased two (brand new) Samsung E 315's and we both had horrible reception. We have been with T-Mobile for 6 years and have never had a problem with any other phones (Nokia, Samsung, Motorolla). The Samsung E 315 constantly drops calls, and it's almost impossible to have a conversation without repeating oneself. This was supposed to be a phone "upgrade"... so far, it has been one big headache. The people at T-Mobile are completely unwilling to solve this problem. Their only attempt to remedy this situation is to sell us a more expensive phone.

I drive all over Albuquerque all day and never drop calls. I do drop calls on I25 between Isleta and Las lunas at the same point almost all the time. I travel state wide and Verizon has been the best for me in NM.

Calls drop every 4-7 minutes and reception goes away for several minutes. Bad.

Guaranteed poor to no receiption in this area, and has been so for the past 15 months of my contract (i.e. ball and chain). My Contract Agreement with SprintPCS was recently changed / extended with out my consent and I have been unable to find the department that can revert it back to the original date. Via phone, I have spoken to Customer Service, Trouble Specialist, Retention, Cancellation Departments. And in person, a manager at a local Sprint Store and no one had authorization to make this change. I have since been informed via email that while SprintPCS has placed notes to my account in an attempt to show their error, "that due to system restrictions, the previous agreement cannot be reinstated on the account." Beware!

I can't use this phone west of Coors to save my life. Every call over 30 seconds gets dropped. I am looking for service that will work on the west side as this is very frustrating for me, I also have a T-Mobile sidekick and it's having issues as well. The sidekick server has not provided continuous service since early March 2005 (a month now of getting messages 1-4 days after they are sent). There is a spot on Coors between I-40 and Montano that kills calls also, it does it ever time. Grrr.

I had very few problems with my Sprint PCS service in Albuquerque. I don't always get a strong signal but very seldom has a call ever dropped. Unfortunately, service in the local Sprint stores isn't very good.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Lomas and Tramway, Albuquerque, NM 87123 |

This is an update to my 8 / 5 / 2004 review below. I am now using both T-Mobile and VZW (work phone). VZW has put up 2 new towers on lower Tramway (at Menaul and at Lomas) so the reception issue east of Tramway south of Montgomery has been solved. I have also noticed T-Mobile is starting to have service issues it didn't have before... delayed voicemail and text messaging, the network has lost connection with the phone... I think they are having growing pains. VZW has also put up new towers on the West Side (Paradise Hills and Rte 550 near the casino) and will soon in south Rio Rancho, so most of its Albuquerque dead spots are fixed. I still like T-Mobile because it is a little cheaper and still pretty good, but now Verizon is equally good in Albuquerque. Combined with how much larger its network is, I would recommend Verizon Wireless as the best choice for most people.
