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.

I have been with T-Mobile close to a year and have to say they have the crappiest phone reception. I went from AT&T only to get worse service. Beleive it or not I have actually had to stand on my toilet seat to get phone service when it's raining. It's constantly dropping calls.

I have had Sprint for some time now and have had constant issue with my bill and reception. The 87109 and 87111 area codes get absolutely horrible reception, and not just on my phone! It is constantly dropping my calls, and not always in just those areas. They mess my bill up a lot also.

I have had VoiceStream / T-Mobile for eight years and have been pretty darn happy with the reception as well as the service( except for once when they screwed up and would not take ownership). Anyway, I convinced my partner to switch from another plan that she was dissatisfied with over to T-Mobile. Since she did so over a year ago we have slowly found our reception to be getting consistantly worse. Now that we have moved to Nob Hill our reception is the worst it can possibly be. Our phones don't even work in our house! I mean we actually pay for unlimited nights and weekends which would take place at home but this is not even possible on the Ericsson and very spotty on the Nokia. I don't know if this is the same for everyone in the neighborhood but a friend with the same phone and sevice 2 blocks east of here has the same lousy service. After 5 months of calls to the service center T-Mobile told my partner that they can no longer help and that she should get a new carrier. So were shopping a new carrier.

Verizon poor. T-Mobile phone I have is somewhat better. I was disappointed with Verizon service when I asked them to investigate dropped calls.

Cingular reception is very, very poor in most of Albuquerque. When I moved to Albuquerque I was lodged in a hotel for 5 weeks during which time I signed up with Cingular. The reception in the hotel area was OK during my 30 days trial period. After I moved to an apartment I found the phone useless. No bar at all. No reception from home. Cingular refused to allow me to break the 2 yeasr contract, saying I should pay a $300 penalty. A contract is a 2 way deal. I pay Cingular for the services I receive. While I receive NO services, they still insist I should pay my bills for 2 years or pay $300. This is OUTRAGEOUS and a scam / rip off by Cingular. I wrote to their CEO about this, and I advise all Ciongular ripped-off customers to do the same. Lets see if that helps !

Very rarely can a call be established if you are east of Tramway Blvd. Would not recommend T-Mobile for anyone that lives in this area!!

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.
