T-Mobile

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | 99W | 129th and Fischer Rd., Portland, OR 97224 |

Calls and voice mail messages do not come through due to T-Mobile's inadequate network even when my phone is hanging around my neck. T -Mobile says to shut down your phone several times a day to keep calls from getting hung up in their cell towers BUT the real problem is that their network simply can't handle the traffic!

I must disagree with the January 3rd 2006 comment. I get pretty good reception in the same area that person is. My phone is not supposed to be that great of one, but I have no problems whatsoever. My wife has the Nokia 3210 and she doesn't seem to have any problems with reception either. These are our only phones, and we also have good reception in our basement, which I can't say the same for my parents in our basement with Qwest. They were on roaming for some reason.

According to AT&T this is a marginal area for them. This new phone works better than the old Motorola clam shell (V-550).

Best cell reception I have had! I rarely drop calls. I used to have to watch where I went, but lately I have coverage everywhere.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | NW 9th AVE | NW Everett, Portland, OR 97209 |

The only places around town where it drops calls are in underground garages and inside a large building (like in a hospital). This is in sharp contrast to when I used to have AT&T wireless a couple of years ago, when calls were dropped so frequently that my friends thought I was developing antisocial personality traits.

I switched from Verizon, which rarely dropped calls, to T-Mobile which almost always shows 0 or 1 bar of signal. Sad. Don't do T-Mobile in the SW hills.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Valleria View Dr. | 217 and Barnes, Portland, OR 97225 |

Spotty reception at my house and I drop a call every time I get to the bottom of Valleria View Drive. I drop calls fairly often as I get on 217 too. Lots of bars but dropped calls. I've been complaining for a year and a half but no real improvement. WIll be switching as soon as contract is up!

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Foss | Kilpatrick, Portland, OR 97203 |

It normally varies between 1-2 bars out of 4 in my house. My previous Sanyo and my wife's new Sanyo are slightly better with a steady 2 bars inside. Haven't dropped a call except in my basement. Sometimes the caller's voice will cut out for under a second. My work Cingular Motorola phone has slightly better indoor signal. Sprint has plans to put in a new tower at Walgreens on Lombard within 120 days.

Almost no reception. With all the high end houses, how can the carriers no put a tower up here. It is ridiculous!
