T-Mobile BARELY (and by barely I mean it really doesn't) works in this area

Most of the time it is completely impossible to have a conversation either inside or outside the house. I thought maybe it was the phone but it works fine most everywhere else in town. Looking at the map its seems like there isn't much coverage in this area from any carrier, especially Tmobile. On the other hand, friends have T-Mobile in the area and it is ok.

I get 2 bars here, and can make calls, but folks on Verizon are on roaming in this valley!

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Barton Skyway | Mopac, Austin, TX 78746 |

My reception starts to drop as soon as I turn off of Mopac onto Barton Skyway. The parking lot area of my apartment will provide 1 or 2 bars, but I have to stand in certain areas. Walking down the sidewalk will cause a dropped call. Inside the apartment, I'm lucky if the phone will detect any service at all. Since moving to Austin, I've had to subscribe to Vonage to get decent phone service at home.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Barton Skyway | MoPac, Austin, TX 78746 |

Used to live off South Lamar and Panther, then moved to Barton Skyway on the Mopac side, now coverage is alot better. 5 bars always. Capital of Texas highway going west can be spotty, but overall, good service. Some garble around Dittmar and Manchaca, but easier to point out the 2 or 3 problems, but no one reallly complains about calls withe me

Very spotty coverage with poor audio quality. The phone doesn't drop very many calls, but the audio quality is horrible. I will be switching soon. In the process of seeing who people think provides the best coverage in the Austin area... is it Verizon?

At work (Arboretum) and around town I generally get good reception. At home (Sunset Valley) I get poor reception indoors (it doesn't drop the call, it just drops every third word) and fair reception if I step outside (useable but still dropping an occasional word).

I am really happy with my service, I use an Edge card in my laptop and can be on the network 100% of the time with my reception never dropping past 1 / 2 way, and I am all over town and go to and from San Marcos occasionally. There are a couple of places where calls will drop for just a moment, which is normal because of the geography of this area.

Ok AT&T / CINGULAR, I know you guys can figure this out, but going down the hill between elizabeth and live oak st. on s. congress either drops or loses alot of signal strength. This is right on the most major street in the middle of town, come on.
