Everything I've read about T-Mobile on this site is absolutely correct. I experience all the same issues. I thought it may be just my phone or just me. I get full reception, standing in the same spot, that drops to zero and then drops the call. Does T Mobile have weaker signal strength? I left Verizon for this crap, probably heading back to Verizon. Cool phones are a plus... but only if they work! Verizon needs better phones and T-Mobile needs better service, at least in the US. I got better reception in the niddle of an African safari, no kidding!

Inside Baruch Campus, T-Mobile and Cingular seem to have the worst service. Nextel and Verizon has the best service so far. Out side the area around 24th st and lexington area, there are many dead zones and that just makes T-Mobile worst. I just use my phone to show off now days around campus because I can't use it to call or receive people.

I always get full bars but when I call people who have landlines, they complain about my voice skipping / breaking up. This means their whole "raising the bar" campaign is deceptive. To prove this, here's another experience. I was on 8ave and 39th st (Garment District / Manhattan), my phone read full bars. I couldn't make a phone call. Someone called me and got the voicemail. I had to use a shop's landline. Cingular's 850mhz is suppose to make it clearer but obviously it sucks.

T-mobile's coverage is terrible. Outside is ok but once go inside of the bldg. I lose all reception. I used to have Verizon and I didn't have any problem. I should go back to Verizon, but T-mobile's package is much better than Verizon, and don't want to pay penalty for cancellation to T-Mobile 'cause poor reception is their problem, not mine.

My phone works pretty well by the windows in the front and back rooms, but not at all in between. I saw a similar comment here from someone on the same street. T Mobile keeps saying theyll send someone to investigate the problem but of course that never happens. Im considering switching to Verizon and telling T Mobile I refuse to pay their cancellation fee due to poor service. But Verizon's rates to text to Europe are so high...

Horrible... Nextel has been having the same issue for months.

I can't wait until my contract is up because I am definitely leaving cingular. The reception pretty much everywhere is horrible. I live in this area and I consistently get 1 bar on my phone here. It is v difficult to make a phone call or receive one.

although I can always get some sort of reception inside my apartment, it can be frustratingly buzzy / staticky and occasionally drops to 0 bars for a brief second... dropping the call of course. the Cingular customer service philosophy is "if we make you wait long enough and press enough buttons, you might eventually just hang up." online billing system is screwy and is often "experiencing difficulties." I will also be "experiencing difficulties" when it comes to renewing my contract next month. not the very worst, but not recommended, either.

Reception is always good with one exception - when exiting the W. 4th St. subway, I often have to walk a block or two before it switches over from analog roam to the Sprint network. Reception in my 4th fl. apartment is perfect.
