Very Poor Signal in this area. Most of my calls don't last but a few minutes and then get dropped (and this is while outside my house). If I am in my home, my phone will have no service for long periods of time. This is pretty sad considering I am on top of a hill overlooking the city of Philadelphia. I work in Plymouth Meeting, PA and the phone works excellent there.

Mixed feelings about Nextel. Use Nextel all i2000 over the Philadelphia / Montgomery County / New Jersey area as well as in various cities in US. Love my indestructable phone. Happy that it works in Europe. Unhappy that I lose signals a lot, especially in more rural areas of Pennsylvania and western NJ. More importantly in my area of Montgomery county I get spotty service. The fact that it doesn't consistently work in my own home in Montgomery County is not good. Nextel needs to get some more towers going in the Philadelphia area.

Just even being around this area on the UPenn campus makes the reception suffer. I always have to use a buddy's cell phone around here, and inside big buildings. There is no reception deep inside large buildings. Voicemail messages are received hours to days later.

This Phone sucks reception wise and I just go it. I turn it off then turn it back on and it says that I don't get any service and I bought this sell phone to use it not to carry around in my pocket all day hoping that I can get good reception in a different area

Hideous reception. Phone often fails to ring and goes straight to voice mail. Calls constantly dropped. Poor and garbled audio particularly when using "Direct Connect" feature. Frequently receive "no service" message. Experienced problems throughout the city.
