No matter where I've gone in the city of Philly AND the burbs all the way up to my cabin up in potter county(on the boarder of NY) I've literally had nearly perfect service and signal. Both rx / tx raw signal strength as well as dispatch strength has been awesome. I use my phone for not only voice and data service but rely on the GPS applications as well on a daily basis to find clients homes, Nextel being the only carrier that even has anything CLOSE to the navigation system they offer. I can say that in the past two years of living in philly I've not had even 1 dropped call or gargled D / C trans. Been with Nextel now for 7 years and loved every minute of it by comparision to other carriers I've had since 1989(yeah I know, a VERY long time). I can honestly say that d / c has actually saved my life at work when I was stabbed by a client, so if their service had n ot worked, I wouldn't still be alive. To me that says alot. Highly recommended!Was this review helpful to you?

T-Mobile has never ever given me a problem 3 different phones all great reception From the NE to Center City to Manyunk.. No one dropped call (with the exception of any call I make to any Nextel phone but it's their's not mine) Nextel Sucks... please hold why we don't locate our subscriberWas this review helpful to you?
T-Mobile loves to jerk people around with reception. Some days I get great reception, some days, like today, nothing. I'm pretty sure I can make a call, but no web browsing, and no instant messenger. It may seem like whining, but I bought the phone for those services, so I expect them to work when I need them. Oh well, Cingular, here I come!Was this review helpful to you?
As long as your not in a basement or in an auditorium you should be cool, but anywhere else (and I mean anywhere) you will get service even if it's a little. I've had very few drops and I actually think that Verizon is the best service out there right now.Was this review helpful to you?
As long as I have had Nextel, I have never been able to go to Mt. Airy as well as ghetto Cheltenham Mall and have service. This is stupid considering all of the vendors within the mall that are Nextel dealers. If you reside in Mt. Airy, don't even think about subscribing to Nextel, period.Was this review helpful to you?
Correction. Replaced original battery and antenna on dinosaur handset. Signal strength is 3-4 bars, calls sound clear as ever, all calls come through, very few dropped calls. Verizon's network is the stuff!Was this review helpful to you?
I have seven bars total on my phone but I mostly have two. But I think it is still great reception. It's as good as when I have seven lines I sorta dont get it. P.S. the only place I never had reception was in a chruch basement.Was this review helpful to you?
Inside, my reception is 3-4 bars. Outside, I am at full strength, 4-5 bars. No complaints here.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception around campus is excellent. I even get 4-5 bars when in my building at 34 and Walnut. However, the second I set foot in my building (Walnut and 40-41st) I'm lucky to see 3 bars, but 1-2 is the norm.Was this review helpful to you?
