1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Cuernavaca, Austin, TX 78733 |

Looking for a carrier that works in the area of Edgewater off Cuernavaca / Mecca. My Verizon works if I'm not at home, but I am at my home most of the time. Verizon has always been great for me, but I can't get or make calls if I'm home (live and work here). Had really hoped to dump all but the most basic land line but now I have to have all the phone co's. bells and whistles because cell doesn't work at home. Any providers work here in this gulch?

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | S. Congress | East Live Oak, Austin, TX 78704 |

I've just moved here from Washington DC where Verizon is king. Sadly it is Austin's redheaded step-child. I have dropped calls daily. I usually have only 1 bar along S. Congress. At the office, I have to run to a window to try to keep calls from dropping... usually doesn't work. I'm moving to the Lost Creek 78746 area soon and expect things to go downhill quickly based on comments from that area!

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | MoPac at Slaughter, Austin, TX 78737 |

Bars are good but can'e hear a thing or be heard from W.Cannon to Slaughter and 1826. What's the deal with 4-5 bar areas that you can't get service?

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Everywhere, Austin, TX 78703 |

Why does cell receotion suck so bad in Austin? I don't know anyone with any phone with any carrier that has good reception. Talking on my cell phone is too frustrating. I won't do it unless I have to now. Most of my calls cosist of "What? You'll have to say that again, you're cutting out" repeat three or four times before the call is dropped. I don't understand why. It's Austin, Tx. It's not like I'm in the middle of freaking nowhere. Cell companies, how bout you start taking a little pride in the products and services you offer and step it up.

AT&T Wireless (GSM)

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Mesa | Edwards Mountain, Austin, TX 78731 |

TDMA works, GSM doesn't... I've tried the store GSM phones (before buying one) in this area for 2years now, every 6-9 months or so.. and still no GSM service. T-Mobile doesn't work in this area either. ATnT (cingular) TDMA and Sprint, however, do.

GSM Service from ATnT barely works, often cutting out voice.. TDMA is actually not that bad (3+ bars)
