1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Paramount and La Casa, Austin, TX 78704 |

My phone is barely useable anywhere within 10 blocks of this intersection. It is this bad all over the city. I don't even bother trying to make calls on Bee Caves Rd.between 360 and Mopac. This is the worst cell service I have ever had, which is strange because AT&T was the best I have ever had and Cingular acquired AT&T [didn't they?]

Good reception most of the time, until I drive to Far West between Mesa and MoPac where it is HORRIBLE.

signed up with AT&T in 1997 when I moved to oak hill. they advised they had the most towers and best reception. could not use my phone in the house and barely outside. was advised that they were aware of the problem and would fix it. 2005, still cant use my phone consistently in house and outside not much better. drop calls, no service, or lots of buzzing. called and they dont care. terrible customer service. drop around 30-40% of calls. 90% of time cannot use or drop calls southbound at mopac and barton creek mall.... will not resign with Cingular when my contract expires

Calls drop shortly after entering the subdivision of Glenlake, and my cell phone is inoperable from my home in that subdivision. Do not start with this carrier ifyou live west of 360 going toward Lake Travis. You will be very sorry.

Calls drop in two locations, about equidistant from one another, on Bee Caves Rd. between MoPac and Loop 360. This was not always the case. Sprint says there is nothing wrong with my phone and it recognizes all the current cell towers. I am so incredibly frustrated with the service. I can't even call to complain about all my dropped calls en route, because my calls to Sprint also drop before I can talk to a humanoid.

Calls are now starting to drop at this intersection - only a few blocks from the Sprint PCS store. Calls did not always drop in this location, but have been dropping for the past 3-4 months. Sprint says there is nothing wrong with my phone, and its software is current in recognition of cell towers.

The worst phone and reception I have ever had. So hard to conduct business when there's an annoying buzz in the background. A lot of dropped calls. Plus I ordered a new Blackberry hoping it would solve my problems, but the idiots at Cingular couldn't activate my new phone. It sat on my desk for 3 1 / 2 weeks before I decided to send it back and look for a new carrier.

Reception seems okay for the most part. But the call drops in the middle of a conversation although I haven't moved from my chair. Can't explain the sudden loss of signal strength. Since my contract is over, I was considering maybe a switch to Cingular.

In neighborhood near Wm. Cannon / Manchaca..no bars! What's with Cingular? I drop more often, much more than in the past. When near Austin city hall, I cannot make a call for several blocks. Saw a guy jabbering on his and asked him his carrier..Verizon. Several I've talked to like them. That's where I'm heading when my contract is up.

I have to go out side my house to use my phone. This is not good in Cold, Hot, or Rainy Weather.
