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?
NexTEL has poor coverage in the northern section of West Monroe and parts of Constantia.Was this review helpful to you?
Depends on the day- drops calls often. It seems to depend on cloud cover, wind, snow, etc. Sometimes it's fine, other times, it won't work whatsoever. "call failed"Was this review helpful to you?
I have seen heavy improvements from T-Mobile in my area. It's still in need of work, but you can tell it's getting better. T-Mobile is finally worth getting.Was this review helpful to you?
