Had Sprint years ago - no reception - switched to Verizon 5 years ago - very few reception problems since. The LG 8000, while large, gives good reception (also has a faily low SAR of 85) - Main negative no Bluetooth.Was this review helpful to you?
Only by an occasional miracle can I complete a call from here to midtown. Abysmal service, they keep sending mailers telling me how they're improving service in NYC - wish they'd spend the marketing money on towers. Also - north of Bank St.along the riverwalk service is pathetic to non-existant to the midtown area.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon service and reception never goes above 3 bars... then drops the call without warning. I'm on the 6th floor and calling right next to window.Was this review helpful to you?
Never had a problem with Sprint in my apartment or office. Apartment is on 15th floor and Office is on 37th floor. Will lose calls in elevator, but who doesn't.. it's rude to talk on the phone in elevators anyway.Was this review helpful to you?
What the Hell are half of you people talking about. I get Coverage Everywhere with Verizon and I mean Everywhere. You people with Cingular are lying. With Cingular I had nothing around here. Verizon ROCKS. And for you that said "Verizon Spokes-Dork: "Can you hear me now?" Verizon Customer: "Huh?" Verizon Spokes-Dork: "Good." YOU SUCK ---------! Everywhere around here it is "Good"Was this review helpful to you?
Cingular works very well in the Cincinnati area, it is definatley the best carrier in the area, or any area for that matter. So if you are cell phone shopping around Cincinnati, Cingular is the way to go.Was this review helpful to you?
I cant believe Nextel is still in this business... When I get a call, it drops.. I cant recall getting a call that didnt drop.. and push to talk is getting worse and worse, I guess they are overloading circuits because I get busy all the time.. My friend that just got Cingular service is raving about it.. Freaking 2-year contract..Was this review helpful to you?
I should have got a pager. Spotty variable reception. When most calls come in they are lost within ten to twenty seconds. Lousy reception due to overtaxed circuits in this area. The phone will show a good signal (5 bars) until you try to use it. Because the circuits are actually filled to capacity the network then switches you to an antenna further away almost as soon as you are receiving or making call, you get 1 bar or less and the call is lost. *************************************** Verizon Spokes-Dork: "Can you hear me now?"

Just got Cingular and I'm amazed at the how well it serves inside my office building. Had other carriers in the past and I would always drop on the higher floors.Was this review helpful to you?
According to the cell tower map... there's a tower ON our building. While my phone indicates a decent signal (3 to 4 bars), the quality is awful. Reception is full of dropouts and garbled sound. Moving near a window does not help. St.level is OK. We have found that virtually all carriers have similar problems... thus indicating some type of signal interference or crowdedness.Was this review helpful to you?
