I've never gotten anything but perfect reception with Verizon on campus, indoors or out, except in the sub-basement of my lab building (two floors below ground), where it drops calls a lot (like at least one in three calls will be dropped mid-call).Was this review helpful to you?
Cingular is a bad carrier for Lower Merion. Works well near Philadelphia, but if you go more then 1 / 2 mile away from City Line service is either at 2 bars or none at all (except Ardmore). I would recomend something else if you live in Lower Merion, especialy if you live in Bala Cynwyd or Narberth.Was this review helpful to you?
I too get no reception in parts of the house in W. Mt Airy and drop calls if moving from certain rooms to others. But outside of the house and throughout the city, mid-atlantic region, and wherever else I've travelled in the USA, reception has been outstanding. Same carrier and number for 6 years and never had any of the problems or complaints that others talk about. Only problem now is the lack of good phone choices and locked / blocked features compared to other carriers.Was this review helpful to you?

AT&T Wireless (TDMA)
Five bars at my house but reception has deteriorated accross the city since the merger with Cinglar. I have read that they want to force everyone to GSM. But GSM out of urban areas is terrible!Was this review helpful to you?
I changed phones at about the same time as the ATT / Cingular merger. My old phone on Cingular got great reception: inside, outside, etc. V180GSM Motorola. I now have a Cingular Nokia 3100. Piece of junk. Poor reception. Drops calls even when I'm in a good reception area. I'm beginning to think that they save on air time by cutting me off after a minute of talking. My crews call me on land-line now because cell reception is so poor. Cingular says I shouldn't be having problems, and that I am in a "medium" reception area. My wife and kids have VERIZON. Love it.Was this review helpful to you?
Recepition is OK as along as long as I stay in one spot in my house. The basement gets poor reception too. Also, like another Reviewer commented underneath and around the trainbridge overiding Susquehanna St. is bad. The NEC 515 reception gives off to much radition or something because if you hold in your hand for to long your hand will go numb.Was this review helpful to you?
