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

2-3 bars inside, 3-4 outside. Only one dropped call since September, and I use it often. Much better reception than Cingular down here in this little valley. Friends who have TMobile also report good reception.

Awful in buildings and even outside. Dropped call after dropped call.

Indoor reception is impossible. Outdoor reception is not good either. I can hardly carry on with a conversation when the call was dropped from time to time.

Never had a dropped call once. I can remember three times in which I had no bars, but they were all inside. Great quality. I have been in rooms in which my friends will have no service with a non Cingular phone and I will have perfect service.

nextel sucks - too many times, I cannot complete a call - called failed try again later, system busy try again later - user not available try again later - user busy in a3 - all when no one is on the phone. When I am in work I have full bars but calls go straight to voice mail the phone does not even ring. walkie talkie does not go thru half the time. I have called my phone from my office phone right next to it and call does not go thu, same with walkie talkie - someone should file a class action suit against Nextel - they can't provide the service they promise and they won't let you out of your contract so you are screwed either way
