I live in San Antonio and Dr.to Austin 5 nights a week to work. My reception is always good. The only time I have trouble with reception is when I am talking to a friend who has Sprint( he is constantly dropping calls).

Basically NO service. If I have to make a phone call, I have to go borrow my room mate's T-Mobile.

I live close to San Jose Church between S. 1st St. and Lamar. Reception from home is usually 1 to 2 bars. I cant walk and talk at the same time without the reception breaking up a lot of the time. Reception on S. Congress is slightly better, maybe 3 bars. Sprint had better reception than T-Mobile. The sound is always crackly with a lot of dropped words, very annoying, especially when talking with clients.

As soon as I leave work and head North on 183 access, then U -turn at Anderson Mill, I'm constantly losing reception. Also have poor reception at work (Artisan Cabinetry and Design) (Near Main Event). Then there's the 183 fly over to Mopac, lose it there. And of course forget driving on 2222. AT&T was much better with it's reception. Cingular just sucks. Heard it might be my phone (Cingular doesn't support it any more) but there's not another decent phone out there that downloads to outlook and vice versa.

Ever since At&T and Cingular merged I have had terrible reception at home. I was persuaded to go with Cingular's GSM service - BIG MISTAKE. The receptuion has only gotten worse. The Cingular store claimed my phone was to blame. I should have kept the old phone. Cingular is sadly mistaken if they think their service is ANYWHERE near what AT&T provided. I can be sitting in my living room (not moving) and the bars will go up and down and I can get cut off mid conversation with someone sitting stagnant as well.

We have Att, Cingular, and Verizon in our household. ATT TMDA by far is the best, Verizon 2nd and then Cingular. My kid with Cingular has to step outside alot of the time to talk. Verizon seems to work pretty well in the house. I really dread it when my service goes completely to Cingular. I've been shopping around and found this site. It doesn't look like any one service is perfect.

Occasionally I get reception inside my home, but it quickly drops to no reception - and that's while I'm sitting still! I can't walk and talk at the same time. Cingular swears there's plenty of towers in the neighborhood but my neighbor has the same problem, and he has Verizon. I'm getting a land line.

if I got a buck each time I can't text, receive texts or calls or people can't hear me, i'd be rich. customer service is friendly but incompetent. am looking for something better asap.
