Nextel has been and remains the worst of all carriers. Every call that lasts more than two minutes gets dropped and that's standing OUTSIDE! Inside a building... you can forget about it. Just wish they would get the message and upgrade. I'm leaving Nextel after 5 years... maybe if more people jumped ship, they might get the message.

It is rare that you would ever get reception in Center City with Nextel, which in my personal opinion is dumb considering that downtown Philadelphia has the highest cellphone usage in the City. Nextel needs to fix this problem... immediately!

Inside, my reception is 3-4 bars. Outside, I am at full strength, 4-5 bars. No complaints here.

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.

Great reception. Works fine even in the elevator. Only at times deep inside a building loses reception. Otherwise in the outdoors works great.

I use a Nextel for work. Bottom line, it sucks. Not only do you have to leave a building to use it, but even then you have to walk around until you get lucky. If you don't believe me, walk around Temple and look for people with Nextel's. They'll be hovering around doorways and windows trying to make calls. I've also heard things about Philly's emergency network conflicting with Nextel's frequency, so beware...

I came to T-Mobile from Sprint (don't get me started). I love T-Mobile. I never have trouble around Philly. Center City, South Philly, Temple, West Philly. Sometimes the signal bars go down, but my phone can always make a call and hold it. The only places I have trouble are out in the middle of nowhere Lehigh Valley, but that's to be expected...

T-Mobile's reception on campus is horrid. Reception will drop from 5 to 0 by taking a few small steps. Many places have no reception whatsoever. T-Mobile needs to improve reception in this area. Not recommended.
