5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | 45th St. at 8th Ave., New York, NY 10036 |

Very good reception at this location with no drop out or call cut-offs. Very pleased with T-Mobile service in general. According to your maps, South of 42nd is not so good, but just a few blocks north of there, it is excellent. My apartment faces south and I always have five bars of reception.

Nearly every call is lost within seconds. Phone shows maximum bars for signal strength, but there seem to be too few circuits to actually handle a call when it comes in or goes out and then the phone searches for and switches to a tower too far away. Result: the call is dropped. Same thing happens to others in this area. "Can you hear me now?"... (silence)...

I used to get ok service in my office on Broad St. Now I have 5 bars on the 40th floor of my building. Everyone that has Verizon or T-Mobile are sucking wind while I am getting email and making calls. My boss is convinced to swap everyone over to Cingular. Hated them before love them now.

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.

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"

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.

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..

I cant believe Verizon says it has the best network in NYC. I cant get service in my office on the 35th floor while Cingular's service is very good.. I gotta switch to Cingular 'cause they are much better on the upper floors.. they must be doing something to target the higher floors that the other carriers arent.. If you work on a skyscraper, get a Cingular phone, your only chance it will work all the time..

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?" Verizon Customer: "Huh?" Verizon Spokes-Dork: "Good."

Dont know what Cingular is doing but they have excellent service inside hotels in Midtown. I recently stayed that Marriot Marquis and Hilton on 6th Ave and didn't have a problem. My partner has T-Mobile and he kept dropping calls. Keep it up!
