Reception in most of the Los Ranchos area is nonexistant due to the fact that the village covenants prohibit any towers. Since I live and work in that area, it makes life very difficult at times. Oddly enough, I have great reception at my house (the only reason I keep this service.) Down the street from my house, there is none. Many places in and around Albuquerque are very sketchy. Everyone in my family has Sprint so that makes it hard to change but when my contract is up, I will seriously be looking at something else.

Verizon is a great serivice. I highly recommend it. However, there is an east-west band of bad reception from Glenwood Hills (east of Tramway on Manitoba) down to Juan Tabo NE. My house, my office and my kid's school are all in this bad area. My calls drop very frequently when I am in this area. In the rest of Albuquerque and across the nation, it is almost always reliable in my experience (except in fringe areas) I would recommend Verizon to anyone who lives in New Mexico and travels outside of the urban areas (such as they are).

Ever since they moved the road we have a new "dead" zone! So much for talking on your phone and driving at the same time.

heard lots of probs and complaints about cricket service. but I have had cricket for at least 7 mths and have had no probs with the reception or the service just the cust svc they dont know squat! best to do your own self help trouble shooting and fix it on your own. so I think it depends on the type of phone you have seems motorolas have the best reception and svc reliability.

I can get as many as 5 bars and the phone claims it cannot find the network. It's a self-inflicted denial of service having Sprint for a carrier; my wife has no trouble with T-Mobile. My Sprint contract runs out this month and I am firing them. I want a Treo 650, but if I have to have Sprint, no thanks.

I don't have service MORE than I do. Cingular is the absolute WORST service carrier in ALB.

Sprint signal is often lost, and usually get a message indicating that you are roaming. Sprint admitted that a hole exist in the area, but only said they would eventually add towers.

I work with many other T-Mobile customers and half the time I can hear them and they can't hear me. Customer care for T-Mobile is more inept and unintelligent than Q-West.
