I live in a townhouse around 13th and U St. and I get no reception in my house. zero bars! if I lean against window in specific room of the house I can have brief conversations before the call drops. it's totally ridiculous one of the two major cell phone service providers can't provide service in the heart of a major metropolitan area. it's not like i'm in idaho here, service in my house shouldn't be too much to ask. my roomates have verzion and get good reception everywhere, even in metro. Cingular blows.

As a student at American University, I've had a great experience with Verizon in Washington. In the vast majority of places I've been, reception is crystal clear. As far as I know, friends with Cingular and T-Mobile have had more problems and dropped calls than I have. Plus, you can use Verizon on the metro.

Over the past few months reception in this area has dropped to practically zero and almost every call dropped.

Hmm, I'm betting the prior poster lives in my apartment building. I too have a Cingular RazR and get absolutely no recedption in my apartment. Cingular will not waive the early termination fee, even though I have no reception whatsoever, because it's "my problem" that my building has no reception. Mind you, Verizon and T-Mobile phones both get full service in my building. It is very frustrating - it's one thing to be told that you can't get out of a contract because you've moved to the middle of nowhere. But moving within a major metropolitan area to another apartment in the same area? And still being told it's your "problem"? It's reprehensible.

Cingular is a reference to the number of bars. I want to throw my phone at the TV everytime I see a Cingular commercial.

No reception inside building mid-block on G. Reception has never been a problem with this phone in DC or other cities, even in buildings.

I have Cingular and use the "freebie" LG cell phone that they gave for signing up. I live right next to Rock Creek Park. When I had Verizon and AT&T, I had no coverage at all at home. Cingular, however, I can use at home, but I very rarely get the FULL bars. Sometimes I do; sometimes I don't. I travel quite a bit, and my Cingular coverage around the country, from coast to coast, has been GREAT. I think Rock Creek Park and all those tall trees is the reason I cannot get GREAT coverage when I am at home. I think all cell phone coverage sucks a big weenie in the Chevy Chase / D.C. area.

When you are out side you have great reception, but dont even think about going in your house. You would be better with a land line phone.

I concur with the earlier customer's comments about the cellular reception at this address. I became a Cingular customer in October 2005. I didn't want trouble connecting with a new service and phone and was told by Cingular representatives that my model Motorola was known to work in basements had average receptivity. I purchased the phone and the service based on this. Around January 2006 service dropped. I spent months on the phone with Cingular and even time talking to their technicians about the towers. Service reps have been helpful and polite but can't do much except provide minutes back for dropped calls. They claim that a structure must have been built between this address and the Cingular tower between this address and the tower; thus, blocking line-of-site. This August 2006, service has been better. Is it cloud coverage boucing better signals back? Perhaps. I drop calls several times every day with Cingular. I hear Verizon works better at this location.
