Signal is ussually terrible, with no signal on inside on the ground floor. Sometimes, the signal rises for a moment.

nextel's reception is by far the worst in the philadelphia metro area. i've had Verizon and T-Mobile as carriers before, and never had any problems until I made one of the worst decisions of my life by choosing nextel / sprint. even after the merger, the service seems to be getting worse. not only is the reception light years away from other carriers, nextel's customer service is atrocious. i've never had such rude customer service reps since i've dined at any restaurant on city ave. bottom line, I will NEVER choose Nextel as a service provider again nor do I recommend ANYONE to choose nextel, EVER!

I had Sprint before and it was terrible--constant dropped calls. Verizon reception is fairly good in my apartment and all through Center and Old City.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | 25th | Parrish, Philadelphia, PA 19130 |

T-Mobile offers very good reception throughout the Fairmount neighborhood, both inside and outside of buildings. Visitors with Verizon plans have a very hard time with reception in this area. Why can't Verizon fix this? It's been this way for years. I'd love to switch but reception in my residence is a must, so I'm staying with T-Mo.

Love Verizon it gets reception when I need it to and I can sometimes even get reception underground on the train.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Wynnewood / PennWynne | Argyle and Haverford Rds, Wynnewood, PA 19096 |

Reception's perfect in my home near Argyle and throughout Lower Merion - even Narberth at the ball fields - signal is 2 bars indoors at City Ave and Haverford, but consistent. 3 Blocks on Haverford and 4 blocks on Bryn Mawr Ave (Penn Valley) are tougher and some calls break up. Just tried Sprint and sent the Samsung A900s back because I couldn't get signals in the same places.

barely keep signal on second floor standing at open window. Very annoying need to keep away from all electronic otherwise kaput! Verizon said to update roaming dialing *228 and that made it even worse. Think of Sprint as they are supposed to be good around here

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | US Rte 1 (Township Line Rd) | Burmont Rd., Drexel Hill, PA 19026 |

If you're on a call, it drops at this intersection, or in any of the nearby business / church parking lots. If you try to make a call most of the time nothing happens.

The reception has been great all over Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. Outside of an occasional dropped call I can't report any cellular war stories. I've been in basements, elevators, on highways, and in the countryside and have always been able to make some sort of connection. I must say I also love the Kyocera brand. The handsets features are very easy to navigate. And Verizon seems to be the only company in Philly carrying them Verizon is more expensive and I'm experimenting by switching to T-Mobile using a Samsung x475? phone---I'm holding my breath hoping the experiment doesn't tank... and have a sinking sensation that I will be back to Verizon within the 20 return window
