1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Ridgewood Rd. | Rollingwood Dr., Austin, TX 78746 |

Our telephones do not work at all on our property.. and rarely while driving around Rollingwood Texas.. which is only 5 miles from the Texas capitol in Austin.

My location is not even a mile from this crossing. I can't use my phone in the house, and sometimes not even outside or in the local street. Cingular shrugs it's shoulders and says there is nothing they can do.

Occasionally my reception will be clear, and T-Mobile has a funny habit of showing more signal bars than I think they actually have. T-Mobile is the worst about dropped calls, but if you don't get your call dropped, it's usually pretty clear. West campus generally SUCKS no matter what cell service you have. If you can afford it, get a land line for more reliability.

Just signed up with this service. thank god I have 14 days to cancel. Terrible reception inside my apt. and I live up high on a hill. Totally drops calls and when it does complete a call, if it completes a call, then the static is so bad. I gotta find a better network.

Poor reception and dropped calls in areas that should not experience this problem. When I was with Sprint, I did not experience near as many dropped calls nor poor reception in the Austin area. I switched due to poor customer service and only poor reception when driving to the Waco, Texas area to visit family in a small town (reception was terrible ). Who offers the best service??

Poor to no reception in east austin near Manor and Airport. Never ever let anyone talk you into going with Cingular. Absolutely the worst compnay I've ever dealt with in my entire life. Have had multiple Cingular users at my house with a variety of phones and no one gets a useable signal at my house or anywhere on my street, yet Cingular claims it's the equipment, and that I should buy a new phone. Crooks! Steer clear of these low life jerks and go with anyone else. You would have better luck with some yarn and plastic cups.

Sometimes, just sometimes, I get 1 bar... OK, almost never! Now, how can coverage be so bad and I'm virtually in the middle of the city??? Less than 5 miles from downtown Austin! Cingular's respnse??? "Sorry."

Downstairs in my house I get dropped calls or it doesn't ring and then I get a beep that I have a voicemail. Upstairs is fine with 5 bars.

Nothing but hills here... ... .you'd need a tower on every hilltop to get down in these ravines. Signal drops to zero near Hull Cir. and again at the Bee Creek bridge (The High Road). T-Mobile is the only carrier that gets even two bars halfway consistently near the bridge, and even though calls break up occasionally, calls seldom get dropped. I've tried Cingular, AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon... ... .don't find yourself in this area needing to make an emergency call on those systems. You will die of frustration well before you can bleed to death. Dropouts are also frequent on the south side of Red Bud also, starting within a quarter mile of Bee Caves Rd. Cell phone frequencies are high enough that they are fairly line of sight... ... .if you can't see a tower with your eye, it may not see your phone, making an idyllic location near the creek a poor place for yapping on the phone, especially if power lines are near.

I cannot use my cell phone at home. Reception goes from 4 bars to 0 bars in the house without moving the phone. I can use it at one point in the back yard. Works great in Dallas and Houston, though.
