1 Out of 5 (1 star) | San Mateo Blvd. | E. Grand, Dallas, TX 75223 |

I seem to get good reception everywhere in Dallas except where I live, and that's in the 3rd story of an apartment. T-Mobile has decent priced plans, but if it doesn't work, then the cost is irrelevant.

I never get any reception anywhere. This is the worst possible cell phone plan you could get.

Very poor reception, I always get dropped call. It has been like this for many years. Nothing to do with the phone, tried it with many phones on T-Mobile. Also service has gotten noticeably worse in the last few months in general the clarity is not good.

Nextel

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Mississippi, Dallas, TX 75243 |

I travel throughout Lousiana and Mississippi quite often, and most of their towers were knocked out by the hurricane. there are a lot of areas you may have signal but no be able to use it. however, I had my company contact them and got a satellite booster in my truck which sat on the seat. it grabbed signal from a sattelite and turned my truck into a mobile cell tower. I got perfect signal everywhere after that. however, Nextel is supposed to have full coverage back up in those two stated by mid jun of '06. on another note, I have tried several other networks in those areas and the only company I got perfect reception everywhere with was cingular. they has very reasonable plans, and amazing coverage everywhere. they also have a new ptt feature.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Cornelia Lane, Off Williamson, Dallas, TX 75214 |

Sprint PCS is absolutely worthless in Lakewood. I am lucky to get a single bar at my house. The phone doesn't ring, but somehow manages sometimes to announce that I have a new voice message. More often than not, if I call to retrieve my voicemail, I have to pay for analog charges because I'm "beyond my service area"! From my own house! I bought the phone at the Radio Shack half a mile away! On abrams between approximately Kenwood and Richmond, your call will be dropped, guaranteed. If you live in Lakewood, DON'T SIGN UP WITH SPRINT!

Highland Park I have witnessed always tends to have lousy cell service both for my Nokia and on my previously owned nextel, however I have people telling me they get great service so, it may just be my phone or my luck...

Outside I have to walk around to try to find a spot where I can get reception, and a lot of the time if I find reception in one spot, it'll go away after a few minutes. Phones rarely get reception inside or near any of the buildings. Also, a lot of the time it won't even tell me that I've missed a call and even though the person leaves a voice message, I don't receive it depending on which building I'm in on campus. Right after Cingular switched to gsm I could get reception in the middle of the desert in the middle of nowhere in the Western United States, but I can't get good reception in the middle of a major city.

AT&T

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Oaklawn, Dallas, TX 75219 |

Not sure what is going on, but service has gotten noticeably worse in the last few months. For example, at home now (off of Oaklawn and Congress), I have to move around the house to get a clear signal. Also, when I drive from downtown Dallas to the airport there are two hard bounces that always knock me off, and that never happened before in the first three years I had the phone. (Well, back then it was with AT&T but now Cingular). One would think one could travel from Dallas to DFW without losing a signal.

AT&T

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Marsh Ln. | Walnut Hill, Dallas, TX 75220 |

This phone gets great reception with Cingular, except in understandable trouble spots like parking garages, elevators, etc. Even there, it still gets 2-3 bars. My LG flip's reception (also Cing) isn't quite as strong. One note: on both phones, there seems to be a very weak signal northeast of Love Field. If you could draw a line as the crow flies from Lemmon / Northwest Hwy. to Midway / Walnut Hill, it is not uncommon to get dropped calls and "No Signal" errors along that line. It is worst along Park from Lakemont to Midway. Not sure what's up on that stretch of terrain, although there is a power station nearby. Outside of that Twilight Zone, the phone is perfect nearly all the time.

Verizon

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Frankford | North Tollway, Dallas, TX 75287 |

Verizon has been generally very good for me so long as I am outdoors or in the car. There is one small place on I30 where the phone will always drop the call but the area is very small (and doesn't move). Typically there is no reception in elevators of large buildings and most concrete parking garages lose signal as you down levels. In office buildings near Legacy and Tollway, there is rarely signal anywhere and any found cannot be relied on long enough to even place a call. But everywhere else... it's pretty good and Samsung phones seem to do well with Verizon here.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Sylvan Ave. | Colorado, Dallas, TX 75208 |

No more than 2 bars in this neighborhood. Going north from Colorado to 30 on Sylvan, ALL calls drop as the road dips. This is within ~100ft of I-30. Cross I30, and reception goes to 5 bars. Face it, Oak Cliff will never see good reception. The neighborhood's not got enough money to attract interest. Friends on ATT / Cingular report the same awful reception in the 'Cliff.

Service became worse after Cingular merged with ATT, I am now on roam from my home and neighborhood. Went to Cingular and was told my phone was too old and I should switch from TDMA to GSM. I learned that Cingular replaced the TDMA tower with GSM tower on Preston. I will switch carriers.
