On a Family Plan with two different phones, both show shoddy reception. Lots of static with some dropped calls.

I have been with T Mobile for 5 years and I have never been able to maintain a call without loosing the call. I keep giving them the opportunity to improve coverage; but was told yesterday that they have no plans to improve my area for the next few years. I have been able to use my phone in europe and in egypt! Which is amazing. But I am not there most of the time!

I love my Sprint phone. Occassionally it drops but only in areas where there's high cliffs. Cell service is exceptional! I was even able to use it in Peru! Imagine that.

I have had Sprint a little over 2 yrs and they suck. I will have quite a few dropped calls, and since my contract was up and I saw I had an outrageous bill I called customer service. Their service is terrible everyone was rude. Someone there changed my plan without my consent, which made me charge more on my acct, the rep told me I could get a free phone but never told me it would add another line which will renew a 2yr contract so now if I cancel I have to pay a 200 dollar early term agreement. I have complained to them and got nothing but rude service from the customer service dept and supervisors. SPRINT SUCKS!

I switched from Cingular to T-Mobile after I just stop recieving calls at all. My phone wouldnt even ring and all of a sudden I had a voice mail. Cingular could never help and always trying to get me to buy a new phone everytime I went in a complained. Switched to T-Mobile a year ago and havent had a dropped call since. Great reception where I am, and their customer service is outstanding!

While using a Motorola V360 or a Nokia 6103 Cell Phone I can expect to get plenty of drop calls guaranted the only thing is I don't know the time it will happen. Since i've had the service with T-Mobile I have tryed several different phones Motorola / Samsung / Nokia and own two but I still get the same Poor Reception / Drop Calls / Droped Words,Words that are Cut Off while talking. I believe T-Mobile needs to upgrade there towers or install more of them around San Antonio Area Very Unsatisfyed Customer, 78228

Great Sprint service here. I've had no problems traveling throughout San Antonio and the I-35 corridor. Phone worked great through I-10 corridor toward Houston. Sprint works wonderfully in metro areas.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | 1604 | Stone Oak, San Antonio, TX 78232 |

Went from a Cingular bag phone (3 watts of magnificent analog power!) and two Verizon phones to a Cingular family plan. It took three visits to make the change. The bill looks like three separate single accounts instead of one family plan. The GSM (I assume) is a buttload of echo and / or delay, and enough distortion so that I have to ask who is calling when my VSOP rings up. The phone has no good shortcuts and you have to follow a long menu trail to do the most common and trivial things - do the programmers actually USE these things before inflicting them on the paying public? Could be a great phone, but jeeez, is outsourcing to the lowest bidder always the best option??

I had been with Sprint for 4 years on my son's account and on July 20, 2006 we decided to get a phone under our own name and I can't tell you what a nightmare it has been the past 12 days. In the past, I never had a dropped call in 4 years (maybe 2 at the most) and was using my cell phone as my ONLY phone, my home phone, calling on it day and night. Since signing up under my own name on July 20, I have had 5 different phones and not one of them could hold a call. Everyone was dropped and if it did stay connected long enough to complain to customer service, it would cut in and out so bad I couldn't even argue the point with them or explain what was going on. They were rude and not helpful AT ALL. Plus they charged me 67.00 for a 29.99 monthly plan on August 8 and I haven't even been with them 2 weeks! I would NOT recommend Sprint if you live in my area and if you plan on using your cell phone in your home.

I recently moved to San Antonio with my T-Mobile service. I drive between downtown San Antonio and Kerrville daily. With T-Mobile I've never had a dropped call and call quality is excellent.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Stone Oak and Hardy Oak, San Antonio, TX 78258 |

Our T-Mobile reception is terrible. Calling into or out of the Stone Oak / Hardy Oak area is a very frustrating experience. I average two to three dropped calls per 15 minute conversation with my wife from downtown or Hwy. 281 into the Stone Oak / Hardy Oak area. This problem has occured consistently over the last 12 months. My dropped call rate to other areas of San Antonio is not as bad but still not acceptable for living in the 8th largest city in the USA where cell phone service should not be a problem. Shame on you T-Mobile!

I live near the intersection of Apple Green and Broadmeadow, in the Apple Creek subdivision off of Huebner Road, ZIP is 78240. Incredibly lousy reception in my home. Frequently no bars at all. I have to stand in my front yard to get a decent connection (sufficient for a 5 minute conversation).

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | No Reception Inside Buildings, San Antonio, TX 78230 |

I have used a 1900 frequence phone since June,2005 without any problems, but now it drop calls or no reception at all inside the buildings. It happened on June 2006. I though my phone had a problems, so I used difference 1900 frequence phones to test it. No luck at all. So I used 850 frequence phone, it has full reception. I can conclude that Cingular will only support 850 frequence mostly. The 1900 frequence will only work outside area such as Hwy. area. If you have 1900 frequence phone, don't use Cingular service otherwise you will be regret. Trust me!

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Dominion / 1604 | Boerne Stage Rd., San Antonio, TX 78257 |

My office is near Sea World and I live in the Dominon. Cingular coverage on 1604 is an absolute joke with three definite black holes (one is I-10 and 1604). I don't know if it is Cingular or the Motorola Razr. I haven't had much luck in San Antonio with either Cingular or Verizon. Both are poor, both have poor quality customer service.

I switched both my wife and my phone from Sprint. I can't stand Cingular. Their customer service is vastly superior to Sprint's overseas call center (most of the people you talk to couldn't afford a cell phone on an entire year's wages). I dropped Sprint because of their poor customer service, now I'm regretting it. I had no clue what a dropped call was until I got Cingular. Now my wife and I just wait until we get home to talk - it's too maddening to try and converse. I work at Lackland and she works at UTSA. It should be no problem, but it is. My coworker has Verizon and he gets excellent reception, including inside our office, where I get no bars at all.

Biggest mistake I have made was switching from Cingular to T-Mobile. No coverage at home unless I stand out front by the street. Live near O.P.Schnabel Park where there is a cell tower. Bonus minutes are great but what about the service I am paying for. Come on T-Mobile get with the program!

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Downtown SA, San Antonio, TX 78201 |

I've been a Sprint customer for several years now (personal and work). Over that time I've used an old basic Nokia candy bar, the original Motorola clam, a Samsung A460, and currently a Samsung A620. I live in New Braunfels, work at Lackland AFB, and travel across the US for business, and regardless of where I am or which phone I've used, SPRINT SUCKS! With up to 3 lines on contract at any given time, I expected more. The contract ends shortly and so will our relationship! I'd rather return to smoke signals than to endure the endless dropped calls, spotty service, or horrible roaming coverage any more.
