I am still sharing a 2nd cell line with a family member in Orlando who has T-Mobile. Since I have a wireless router, I purchased the Nokia 6301 so I could talk to her. The wireless part of the phone does allow me to make and receive calls, by connecting to my home network's wireless router. But it's range is extremely limited and is affected by walls, lights, etc. The router is a WRT54G-S and it works fine. The phone, on the other hand, seems to be using something more limited. The family member has been with T-Mobile for 4 years and will finally switch to another carrier when the current contract expires. The coverage in Florida is fine if you're in a major city, but if you hop on a thruway and travel somewhere, expect problems. We wonder why T-Mobile isn't expanding more?Was this review helpful to you?
3-5 bars,Iam actualy writing this review on my phone.Was this review helpful to you?
I can get 3-5 bars at home but poor reception going thru West Monroe on Rt 49. Friends with different providers get very poor or no signal at my home.Was this review helpful to you?
Even though I only get 1 to 2 bars, the LG VX8300 is able to allow normal conversations inside and outdoors. The only problems I have had, have been with interference from fluorescent lights while I am walking around the house. So I usually sit down away from fluorescents and it's fine. We are upgrading to the new LG Chocolates (8550 models, not the old model) and I will get to test the reception tomorrow, when the phones arrive via FedEx. Was with Cingular 3-4 years ago and couldn't receive anything out here by the lake. Same with T-Mobile. I had a Samsung T509 and was on T-Mobile's Family Share plan with a family member who lived in Orlando. Could never talk to her inside, and only sporadically outdoors - depending on weather conditions. I always wondered what a clamshell phone with an external antenna would have received.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is very poor all through Altmar. At my home, reception auto switches from the Sprint Network to roaming. Can sometimes receive one bar at home. With Sprint, I receive between 0 and 2 bars when traveling between Altmar and Oswego on either Route 3 or 104.Was this review helpful to you?
Have been living here for 1 year now and cannot get reception with Cingular or Verizon. If I travel a few miles down the road I can get a signal. I can get a call to last about 30 seconds before the signal is lost. Very disappointing in this area. I am getting ready to switch providers but I don't think there will be reception from any of the providers.Was this review helpful to you?
Barely ever lose reception and I usually have a good 5 bars or so. However, back roads around here are horrible with reception.Was this review helpful to you?
Don't get why people here complain about Nextel. Works great!Was this review helpful to you?
Was a Cingular customer for 5 years. Was told this year I had to upgrade or pay an upfee and still possibly lose the little reception I had anyways. Got new phones with new technology. They were worse. Reps from the store purchased were terrible, their superiors were as unreliable as the phones. Worst phone company around. Now a satisfied Verizon customer. Great Northern Mall store is the place.Was this review helpful to you?
Putting a T-Mobile tower in the empty field right here would definitely take care of the very poor and usually dead spots in Fairway East, and along I-481. Poor reception, and this area has a lot more potential. Come on T-Mobile! Listen!Was this review helpful to you?
