No one dropped call (with the exception of any call I make to any Nextel phone but it's their's not mine) Nextel Sucks... please hold why we don't locate our subscriberWas this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
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!Was this review helpful to you?
Inside, my reception is 3-4 bars. Outside, I am at full strength, 4-5 bars. No complaints here.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
Great reception. Works fine even in the elevator. Only at times deep inside a building loses reception. Otherwise in the outdoors works great.Was this review helpful to you?
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...Was this review helpful to you?
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...Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
