Either no bars 80% or one bar 10%--other 10% of the time "searching for network". This provider offers very little reception in the Ssyerville, South Amboy and Parlin area.Was this review helpful to you?
I've been a Sprint PCS customer for a VERY long time. I've generally had very great reception wherever I've lived. I even convinced my fiance to get a Sprint phone and be added to my plan. What a mistake! We just bought a condo here in Matawan and when we try to make any phone calls while inside, our calls are dropped mid-conversation about 85% of the time. Not only that, for the last 10 minutes I've been trying to make a phone call and I've been getting this message: ATTENTION: svc cannot be used at this time. Unbelievable! What if it was an emergency? I wonder if I have any legal ability to cancel my contract without penalty if I can't get reception regularly in my house. I've had friends over who had no problem with their cell phone service in our house. Moral of the story: If you live in Matawan / Aberdeen area, DON'T sign a contract with Sprint / Nextel.Was this review helpful to you?
No one on my block can get a decent cell signal at all. We live right by the SI Railroad and it gets better when I go out infront of my house away from the rails but otherwise I can't get anything. Even wireless networks I try to hop on are skiddish. Will it ever change?Was this review helpful to you?

getting one bar at best, really eats up the battery... T-Mobile gets a full set of bars in the same spot with my sidekick...Was this review helpful to you?
Cingular and AT&T, they share networks; you just need a 2 mode cellular (using 850 MHz and 1,900 MHz bands).Was this review helpful to you?
Never had a problem in Iselin, Woodbridge and Metropark. I once visited Plainsboro and received 1 bar signal and no signal one week back.Was this review helpful to you?
Pretaining to the last comment. I made a mistake on saying that Cingular only had one bar. Its TMOBILE that only has one bar in this area. Like the other guy I even called them and said do something but nothing switch to Cingular. Its the bestWas this review helpful to you?
If you live near charlie browns steak house in edison its obvious your gonna get crappy reception from T-Mobile since they barely have even like 3 or 4 bars overall in the US. Like the dude who wanted switch to Verizon DONT do it. I not your phone service advisor but its good if you dont do it cuz if you screw up ur phone you gotta wait untill u can get an upgrade or ur contract is over. Cuz its CDMA. Switch to Cingular it has better signal in ur area around 4 or full bars and they have 3g reception out now which means u cann video call.Was this review helpful to you?
Nextel is horrendous for this location, zero reception. Their answer is that we are on a bubble i.e. convergence of three towers and there is nothing that they can do.Was this review helpful to you?
