T-Mobile has poor receiption in the 78730 area. I drive from the UT area to close to Emma Long Park and can get up to 10 droped calls (I don't even try anymore). Customer Service is poor. Don't bother with this T-Mobile service if you live in GlenLake, WestministerGlen or River Place and want to use your phone while in the car.

Cingular most pathetic service in the whole country. My phone does not ring when someone makes a call. Cingular says they can't route the call! It's been 15 days. Customer support people are very aggogant and unfriendly(especially a guy by name "schlote williams". Hopeless, pathetic service. Getting out of this network this week.

I live and work in 78702 and I can't use my cell phone at home or at my office. There is a tiny area between them - i'll get good service for about 2 blocks - then nothing.

Signal drops all the time when I am talking at home. There is a single spot in the house where I can get reception and even there it is not consistent. The bars are 0 to 2. Elsewhere it has been flaky as well but not as bad as at home.

I will frequently get dropped calls. Usually about half of my calls end because it was dropped. I switched to using Skype Out for making calls.

We had ATT for years and switched a year after the merger because we were told that our reception would improve with Cingular since they were no longer upgrading the ATT towers. What a HUGE mistake that was. Cingular has the worst reception I have ever experieced in the 10 years I have had cell phones. It has gotten to the point where it is almost impossible to conduct business anymore. Constant droped calls, calls that just scramble in the middle of a conversation and the network alway too busy to make a call. I may as well be sending smoke signals.
