5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | 17th and S NW | Dupont Circle, Washington, DC 20009 |

Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, Downtown, Capitol Hill, Metro System, Department Stores, Office and in my highrise not a single glitch. Strong signals everywhere and the package I purchased was generous. Have nothing but good to say about their support and Sprint's service!

If I stand outside or right next to a window, I can get two bars of signal. Otherwise, it's only one bar or "No Service" inside my apartment and various other businesses in the neighborhood. My phone won't ring with one bar, and outgoing calls are painful and drop out frequently.

I get 4 "deceiving" bars of service most of the time, yet I have to dial 20 times or more to place a call and I usually give up. Each time it says "Connecting" then "Redialing" then "No Service Available" then "Entering Sprint Service Area" all in a few seconds. Very frustrating. Sometimes it works just fine, and then half way through a call it will stop working - either fading completely or the other person cannot hear me speak or hears digital noise.

It's perfect almost everywhere I go. I commute from Cleveland all the time and I get perfect reception almost the entire trip. The only time that I don't get any reception is when I'm on campus here at Marymount.

Phone will display full signal. However, the majority of the time when you dial a number, it will drop to 1 bar or zero. The call quality is very poor and fluctuates.

Reception perfect until about a week and a half ago (Aug 10). Now, no reception at all. 4 hours in 4 calls to ATT. No help.

Since a week ago (Aug, 13 04) I have had no reception. I called in a trouble ticket - to no avail. I've tried three different phones, a neighbour's AT&T phone is also dead. A friend with AT&T, came to visit - she can't make calls out or in. No support from AT&T. Of course they want me to buy a new phone.

Horrible reception around DC. I can't get reception inside our house or out. Constant dropped calls. Nice customer service though. I cancelled less than two months after service began with no penalty. I didn't have to pay for activation either. I wish it worked because our plan was the best around.
