Drop calls like crazy in my house but reception outside is decent. --I think it has something to do with the 50yo house :-)

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).

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.

Calls routinely drop every 10-12 minutes! The signal bars will all appear but, a few minutes later, without fail, even if I've not moved, they drop to 1 or 2 and the call fails. BF's phone does this too, and sometimes so quickly that he can't even listen to the messages on his voice mail before the call is dropped. I have SOME better luck outside of the house, but still often get dropped calls.

If I am in the back room of my house on the 2nd floor, Drop calls like crazy. Must stay in the front master bedroom if I want to carry on the conversation. Overall, Cingular network is about 50% better than ATT's whom I had previously before they both merged. If you live in the area, most likely no problem, very strong signals actually. ONLY in the back of my house, any phone services (Verizon, Sprint, ATT, Cingular, T Mobile) don't work! :)

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | North 19th St. | Montgomery Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19121 |

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.
