5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Avery Ranch, Austin, TX 78717 |

T-Mobile service has been superb. With other carriers I have experienced unclear calls, problems making calls, and dropping calls. Since starting to use T-Mobile, my experience has improved dramatically.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | 183 and Oak Knoll | McNeil, Austin, TX 78729 |

I live in the oak knoll / mcneil area and I get perfect coverage inside my duplex and outside... . NO dropped calls and perfect reception. Funny that I put in my zip code for T-Mobile and was weary that I wouldn't get good reception according to their map, but I haven't had one problem thus far!

I can get very limited reception on the sidewalk in front of my house; in the house, not even that.

I live in Circle C on Van Winkle Ln. My reception in the house is good, but inconsistant. The signal goes from 1 bar to 4 bars, even when sitting still. 90% of the time my reception is good without dropping the call.

my cell phone only works as an alarm, occasionally I can text if I move around a lot and keep resending it. I hope I dont get into an emergency. if I do I think T-Mobile should pay for my funeral

I have always had really good service from Sprint never having dropped a call in my area or anywhere in Austin with this phone. My roommates Samsung phone drops a lot of calls though, seems like its all about how good your phone is.

With Verizon - Tons of lost calls Called Verizon about it today They suggested dialing *228send, then select option 2 to update cell phone towers in area for better reception The update worked fine and powered on and off my phone. But It did not help reception.

I moved here about 5 months. The reception on my old Nokia was really bad and this was my fourth one in 4 months about this time, so AT&T authorized me to get another phone. (In my previous city, only the Nokia brand with AT&T would work in my house.) So I got a Samsung Sync. It consistently dropped calls, had reception so bad intermittently that often people would say they could not hear me, and had me so crazy with trying to figure out where in the house or yard I could get reception. So they authorized another phone plus the accessories, since I had just bought both recently. I've had the new phone 2 weeks, and the reception is deplorable, commonly, and was so bad on a recent call with Cingular on an unrelated issue that the rep authorized me for a a different phone. Often I cannot hear with this phone, and today two calls out of three were dropped, one with the health insurance company. Grrrr. One time today I walked to the very back of the yard and got some reception. I have to get another provider. Forget the replacement phone and the money I spent for the Sync and accessories. Cash down the tubes. Will investigate this website. Thrilled that it exists! At least I can see that I'm not the only who detests AT&T's service in Austin.
