We great reception with T-Mobile in this area, even in the basement garage of our building. 5 bars all the time. I have found a few dead spots in other parts of town, however.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX 75275 |

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.

Before Cingular took over ATT, my reception was exceptional in house and neighborhood. Now it's barely there and my phone shows ROAM as I drive the streets of my neighborhood. Must have sold off the ATT towers.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | M-Streets, Dallas, TX 75206 |

I've used T-Mobile, Sprint, and Cingular. Of the three, Cingular seems to get the best reception. All of my neighbors report bad cell phone reception, especially inside their houses. It's not uncommon for me to step outside into my front yard to place a call, and see three of four of my neighbors doing the same thing! Reception seems to have become stronger in the last few weeks - maybe somebody heard the complaints and put a tower in nearby.

no ring through, and it goes straight to voice mail. It is as if they have a revolving tower, I never know when I will get a good or strong signal. Worse of all its my business phone.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Mockingbird | Abrams, Dallas, TX 75214 |

Out service is reasonable 3-4 bars early in the morning when you don't need it. As the day wears on it deteriates to anywhere from no service to 2 bars. When you do get serviceduring the day it's staticy, breaks up and is not usalble! It stinks! Looking for a way out! and another option! Also, I was sold a Motorola phone that was touted to be so much better than my old Nokia -- phooey!

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Pevy Rd. | Ferguson Rd., Dallas, TX 75228 |

I can not use these phones in my house. they work outside on my front steps facing west only. My back yard is very spotty. I have had 2 trouble tickets with Cingular; 1st ticket was closed because I was not at home to answer the phone. A customer service rep. told me she could see on a coverage map that coverage was very weak where my house is. The tech rep. told me the same. Now I call Cingular and they tell me all of the reports show there is no problem in my area and it will cost me $150.00 per phone to cancel my contracts. Bottom line; The largest cell phone carrier in the area does not care if you can use the phone or not.
