all calls are dropped and I get cross calls where the person on the other side of the call hears other conversations.

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.

Reception sucks in this area inside buildings. Better outside.

Like another Sprint user mentioned earlier, I never had any problems with Sprint at my home in NW Hills until around March 2006 -- now, up to 1 / 2 of the calls my wife and I make get dropped! I can't begin to tell you how frustrating it is. I'm willing to pay the penalty to get out of our contract, but it looks like T-Mobile is the only carrier with decent reviews in NW Hills, and I've heard they have problems elsewhere in town. :-(

I am so frustrated, because 9 times out of 10 I cannot dial out on my phone when calling from home. When driving in Austin it's spotty just about everywhere. But where I need it most is at home and the service is so lousy and all I get is a recording saying my call cannot be connected at this time. Well what am I going to do if there's an emergency?! I pay lots of money to Cingular each month and for what?! This is such a rip off and it sucks that I'm locked into a contract with them for a service that doesn't work.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Slaughter | MOPAC, Austin, TX 78749 |

On the way from work all along 290 / 71 West and to MOPAC south from there HORRIBLE reception. During the 20 minute car ride, I drop between 4 and 8 calls - depending how patient I am with calling back as it gets frustrating beyond belief. I am dropping Cingular at the end of the contract, but who I am going to get when everyone seems to have POOR reception?

Had ATT&T and it was the BEST. When they merged with Cingular the quality of cell coverage was absolutely horrible! Switched to T-Mobile. Theirs isn't much better. I can stand in the same spot and watch my reception go from full to non-existant... dropping the call then full reception comes back... .all without ever moving! This happens in several spots around town. Contract is over in 2 months! Thinking Sprint or Verizon at that point.

Usually takes 2 to 3 tries to get an outgoing call to work. Reception is horrible unless I stand near my back door where the quality is tolerable - anywhere else in the house doesn't work at all. The sad thing is I have better reception now than in my last house near Oak Hill.

I've been a Sprint customer for six years and reception has been consistently good. Calls frequently get dropped at the 183 / Mopac interchange and at 2222 / Mopac. For the most part reception has been reliable.

I just moved to Austin from Colorado Springs There Cingular was decent with some but acceptavle dropped calls, but the thing is that places were that was happening were predictable Around Austin it is horrible, the bars are dancing up and down (mostly down) and I get no reception in many places The worst is that sometimes I see 5 bars but as soon as I try to place or answer a call boom, zero... gone! I have 4 more months on my contract and then asta la vista baby cingular
