Drops every day near this location as I walk home from work. Reported the problem several months ago with T-Mobile.

Almost always no reception - though sometimes I'm surprised by 3 bars. Seems to be a dead spot at a very busy location.

We were switched from ATT wireless when Cingular bought them. Now, we have virtually no reception in our living room, and moving to the kitchen puts both Nokia and Motorola phones on "Roam". No accountability at all from Cingular, and I don't care where their towers are if they don't give me service. We're stuck until the contract expires, and then, believe me, we'll switch.

Terrible Coverage. I switched from AT&T to Verizon and learned to regret it. My apartment gets absolutely no reception. Also, in order to get a new phone one needs to commit to Verizon and the phone you buy for two years (unless you want to buy another phone at full price)... .this phone's quality etc progressively deteriorates with time and so does the service. Reception is extremely variable, and my default is to assume a bad connection rather than a good one.

I live in a house in Park View where I get reception from all points in the house, including basement and interior bathrooms.

Can't hold a call for more than 10 minutes. It's been getting worse in the last months. Perhaps nearby embassies security devices?

No stable signal inside my ground-floor apartment. Will show 1-2 bars but calls are one-sided, too staticky to hear and liable to drop for no reason at all. No reliable coverage between just after Wisconsin along K St.towards 34th; drops unexpectedly every few minutes although clear signal. I like their pricing plans and phones, and they worked great in Boston and Vermont, but Cingular seems to be pretty lousy in the Georgetown area. Switching this weekend now that my contract's up.

The reception in this whole neighborhood is so spotty that even if you're outside your house you will drop the call (if it even goes through!)

Lived there for 1 1 / 2 years and always had trouble with Cingular reception. Static, dropped calls, low signal, etc. It caused me real problems since we did not have a land line in the house and the cell phone reception was completely unreliable. Cingular's customer service was no help, either. I called them many times, and went into stores many times, and they showed me ALL the towers that were nearby --> I shouldn't be having problems there! I am so excited for my contract to finally expire so I can switch to Verizon.

Over the past six months, I have had no reception in my apartment building or in the surrounding blocks, as far away as Foxhall Road. I used to be able to make Sprint calls from my balcony, but now I have to leave my neighborhood to get a signal.
