I just moved to Narberth for Grad school along with my boyfriend. I have Sprint and he has Cingular and we don't get service unless we stick our head out the window and even then its dicey. I don't understand why there aren't more towers. I from MD and my parents live in a Valley where there is a state park and 1 tower but I still get much better reception there.

I get no reception in my apartment and basically have to step out every now and then find out if I've received a call or to make a call. I would not recommend T-Mobile to anyone.

The inability of both AT&T and Sprint to provide a reliable signal to customers who live and work in Center City Philadelphia high rises is appalling. Whether in my 25th floor office or my 23rd floor home, my Sprint service is constantly dropping calls, having no reception, and draining the cell phone battery like mad. My prior AT&T service was no better. There should be sufficient towers within the city to serve higher levels in buildings. There clearly is not.

reception is fine. but NO CALLS GET THROUGH. sometimes I have to dial 7+ times to reach someone, and texting is a nightmare of holding the phone in my hands and constantly resending mssgs over and over. lately it's been especially bad, dropped calls and network failures.

On Campus reception sucks. It works out side of campus, but once you are in any building no bars or have to find signal by moving around. I think the wireless internet connection of temple interferes with T mobile service.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Mont. Ave.& Mill Creek Rd. | All Over Main Line, Ardmore, PA 19003 |

Have had Nextel for 5 years. Had i60 c and now i830. never had a problem with coverage, especially in older bldg's throughout mainline. Work from center city, to center county at penn state (heavy mountains) to Pittsburgh and on the roads in between. Great coverage, strong signal both with DC and phone. Odd, but no signal in grocery stores. Also have tmobobil using hotspots at home. Have Nokia with UMA. Great coverage across mainline and ardmore to king of prussia, no signal break from wireless to GSM, and free minutes when on wireless.

Clear signal, no dropped calls... even works in my basement. Verizon is pricy, but worth it in my experience.

Occasionally signal comes through. Phone spends half the time searching for a signal, the other half with one to two bars. Constantly dropping calls.

Overall good reception except when i'm at school... but then again everybody has spotty service there. my reception may go down a little in my house but you can still carry on a decent conversation... i only had about 2 dropped calls in an area where I was supposed to have service in the past 15 months
