I have little to no reception anywhere in SE Portland. I must pay $200 to get out of my contract. I hear positive things about Verizon but I think I'll stick with land lines for the time being.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Clatsop | 141st, Portland, OR 97236 |

Calls are dropped every several minutes even though a constant 3 to 4 bars show, happens whether we are inside or outside the house. Very frustrating it is keeping us from using cell as primary phone for home use, locking us into landline service.

Had AT&T with a NOKIA phone til Cingular took it over. Now I have Cingular with an LG C2000 phone and the reception is the worst I have ever heard. I can barely take any calls, and when I do, everyone is frustrated speaking with me - it's all garbled and cuts in and out. SUCKS. The AT&T / Nokia combo wasn't great by any means, but it was better than this. I need to drop everything and start over. How can reception be this bad right in the city?! Ridiculous.

0-1 Bar reception out this way. Lots of dropped calls and poor quality when calls can be made. I have been happy with Sprint all over the US but it is frustrating to use in this area.

Need a tower out here. Top of Hill. Nearest cell towers at a 2.5 mile distance, but towers are at much lower in elevation and blocked by terrain. New high-end subdivisions within 1 mile radius from deadspot, but still no attention from carriers.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Barrows Rd.(@ 160th) | Scholls Ferry Rd., Portland, OR 97223 |

I live in the Bull Mountain Meadows community and have had terrible reception on Verizon for years. I can barely even make a call from my house and I always have to call from right in front of my front window. Since there is a Cingular tower along Scholls Ferry Rd between Roy Rogers and Barrows (no more than 1 / 2 mile away from my house) I tested a Motorola RAZR V3 using the Cingular network and now I get 4-5 bars! And that is even inside my house! Sitting side-by-side, the Verizon Motorola T720 has 1 bar ANALOG while the Cingular Motorola RAZR V3 has 4 flags GSM. Talk quality on the Cingular RAZR was solid when walking through my entire house. Outside is, of course, even better. Cingular's coverage rocks in this neighborhood. I'm switching.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | NE Fremont | 44th, Portland, OR 97213 |

In general, I've found Sprint PCS reception to be good in the Portland area--partly due to the five-year-old phone, which I've found can pull a signal where the newer Motorolas and Samsungs have nothing--but I just moved and this area and E of 33rd into the 40s and just north of the Alameda ridge seems to be a dead zone. I'm down to one bar and have had lots of dropped calls for the first time. Problem is, the newer phones all seem to have worse reception, which means no signal here. Sprint PCS customer service seems to have gone DOWNHILL after the Nextel merger also, which I didn't at all expect. Verizon is the only carrier I haven't heard complained about in close-in PDX... is it really the only option to aviod dead zones?
