I lose calls all day, every day. If I have an important call, I have to go outside. Sprint service sucks. I'm going to contact my state representative. I'm sure that during the upcoming legislative session cell phone carriers will be asking for something. Contacting our representatinves is one way to show our displeasure with the whole system, no matter which carrier you use.

Good T-Mobile coverage, but pretty often voice becomes garbled / fades out. Not a phone problem.

Cingular signal in Hyde Park area is poor to unusable. Usually one or two bars, but often "No Service." Same problem in the vicinity of Far West and Mesa. Yes, my phone is old technology; however, my next door neighbor has latest technology Cingular service and equipment but suffers the same problems with weak or no signal. Stinks! Regardless, I can't imagine life without it these days, even if it is Cingular. Communication by cell phone is still a comparatively new innovation. It'll get better... the sooner the better!

Worthless. About 30% of the calls I make from inside my house are dropped; including 3 made to T-Mobile customer service -(rich, isn't it). Granted, the phone is not exactly top of the line, but one look at their coverage map and I can honestly recommend to anyone who lives within a mile of the McNeil / Parmer intersection: Avoid T-Mobile like the plague.

Always poor reception, and constant dropped calls. It is strictly the coverage no the phone or the cell company.

Absolutely Pathetic - Signal strength 'indicator' seems to follow billboards much better than calls. Cingular's the only carrier I've ever had to routinely drop calls with '5 bars' of signal strength. My guess is that their marketing department has a much better stranglehold on their 'bars' than their towers.

The sound isn't terribly clear, sometimes it helps to step outside the house. I can actually walk or ride my bike around the entire neighborhood and yak on the phone for an hour or so and the call doesn't drop, tho I may have to backtrack to improve reception. I get decent reception on calls around my office downtown near the Capitol also. Still, I'm thinking of trying Verizon to see if I can get better clarity, or maybe someone can recommend a better phone. Clarity is particularly a problem with voicemail, sometimes I really can't hear parts of the messages. As a side note, Suncom (an AT&T subsidiary) and AT&T were great back in the day, once Cingular bought AT&T that was the end of that.

This service, perhaps it is the phone often looses calls no matter how many bars I have. I use it for business locally and am considering another carrier.
