The moment I enter the building, the signal is unpredicable. Calls are dropped frequently.

Lose signal all the time - call quality is terrible.

"Can you hear me now?"... HUH? "Can you hear me now?"... click! Phones near Penn Station show perfect signal strength with full bars, but Verizon drops calls consistently after a few seconds. Same (worse) with a Samsung SCH-a310, Motorola V60, etc. It's not the phones, it's the Verizon network. The signal falls to one bar at random. It seems Verizon's antenna nearby does not have anywhere near enough circuits to handle the volume near Penn Station, hence strong signals and dropped calls. The commercials are 100% on target, all you can ever say on a Verizon phone around here is, "Can you hear me now?"

Sprint PCS really does suck! I just got my 3rd replacement phone and it doesn't work, I would call Sprint to cancel but I can't, It doesn't hold a charge and I can't even log on to the network to send a text. I would use a can and a string before I spend another dollar with sprint. James

Up until recently, reception and call quality has usually been fine. For the past couple of days, however, I have been experiencing dropped calls (irrespective of the location of the person with whom I'm talking). When I look at the reception meter, the number of bars fluctuates quickly from 2 to 5. Could this all be a function of a failing battery? I've had the same battery for a couple of years.

I am having the strangest problem. I intermittently get no signal at all on my 7100 in my office, while users of Blackberry 7230s get 3 or 4 bars. When I do occasionally have signal on the 7100 in this location, I get 3 or 4 bars! T-mobile has sent a replacement phone, which seemed to more consistently get signal for a while, but now repleats the same behavior. Popping my SIM in an n-gage QD yields full strength.

T-Mobile sucks in this area. I've seen an AT&T GSM phone work here, where mine doesn't.

AT&T Wireless (GSM)

So far, AT&T's GSM network reception is much better than my previous TDMA service with AT&T from midtown to Soho / Tribeca. I used to get 2 bars signal with my old Motorola V60 in Midtown. If there is any change, I'll repost.

Got Verizon in April and the signal was perfect. Worked in some subway stations too. Now, a month later has very intermittant service anywhere near the Empire State Building up to W 40th Street along Fifth. The tell me there is nothing in their system that indicates a signal problem. Can't get a signal at my apartment building on W 35th St anymore. :(
