We have very few dropped calls. However, I don't get voicemail messages for at least 3 hours to 45 days. Since I'm dependent on my phone for my job this can be very very bad. I've not gotten important messages, then suddenly I'll have over 50 voicemails. Texting is a PITA. It only works about 30% of the time. I don't get responses and look to find that the texts have never been sent... locked in my outbox. I have the same problem getting texts taht I do with voicemails. Today I got 90 texts, some from December 2010! That is just wrong. Sprint says "oh well". They are not helpful at all with customer service. I can't wait to get out of this contract. Have had them since 1995 and was always happy till the last 18 months. My download speeds are about 3KB per hour. Most websites never load. I just have given up.

"Poor" is being generous. Usually there's NO reception and I must drive ~2 miles away to make a call. AT&T says they're adding or upgrading towers (depending on who you talk to), but nothing's changing. Before I moved here I used 10%. Last month I RAN OUT after just 2 weeks. Once I proved I had to make 5-6 phone calls (in succession) to the same party, AT&T gave me 500 extra minutes. I had to call THEM several times just to complete a conversation. They'd keep saying "you're breaking up" at which point I'd scream "That's because I have AT&T!" I upgraded to the Captivate because I thought my cheap flip-phone was the problem. Not so! Under the 30-day warranty, this phone is going back, my "no contract" status will be restored, and I can go with another carrier. I'd love some suggestions, but from what I'm reading here, it seems they all stink in San Antonio!

Terrible reception. although AT&T has told me we are located in the middle of four towers. I sceptically believed them. I now know why the cell phone companies require a two year noncancellable contract. Otherwise they would be out of business real quick due. I was going to drop the landline but now am thinking of checking into cell phone rehab. There have been exactly zero times that a call could not wait until I got home. Sure there have been a lot of convience calls recieved, but now they are going to ban talking while driving. Same as they did with drinking and driving back in the day. By the way, was it only alcohol beverages against the law while driving? If itis against the law to be DUI? Why do bars have parking lots? I know, for the designated drivers, right. ha ha

I believe that the area between Northwest Vista College and UTSA as well anything on the "other" side of Leon Valley heading for Loop 1604 is a dead area for anything. Radio reception is HORRIBLE out here and you probably need cable to watch any TV out here. Sorry this is off subject. But after reading these posts I believe you guys about cell phone reception. I have a friend of mine who says he knows people a few seconds from where I'm at and they have issues with both radio and cell phone reception

My phone works great everywhere I go except in my building at work. The battery drains by mid-afternoon because the device is searching for signal all day. FRUSTRATING! esp since this problem was noted for this area FOUR years ago - see above! That wasn't my comment, but it's still true! Need more signal in this area.

I had Sprint and had great coverage in my house. Switched to AT&T for an iPhone about Oct 2008 and have experienced lots of dropped calls and failed call attempts. Even walking around in my neighborhood (outside) the problem exists. I also have an AT&T blackberry for work which has poor reception.

Living out in the hill country I still get great service, only problem is that I have to go upstairs or by a window to use my 3G. Never have dropped calls.
