The dead zone of dead zones. I guess with the abundance of foliage it completely blocks tower signals along the stretch between I-295 and Branch Avenue.

It would be nice to one day make a call from my house that doesn't drop and require me to go outside to finish a conversation.

Dumped T-mobile. The mobile means go outside to get average reception. Verizon is great! 4+ I dreamed of someday making a call indoors, instead of outside in the freezing cold. Rarely has Verizon been weak. It treats me well in PA, CA, AZ and everywhere in between.

I get good to great reception everywhere, but a sad lonely one bar in the house. Unless I'm pressed against the windows, I don't get anything and frequently miss calls. Even sitting at the window I'll drop a 30-min call 2 or 3 times. All my roommates get fine reception with their phones. Aaarrghhh!

Born in SE and cant even visit my parents without having no service its like Nextel thinks nobody in SE needs service. Had to call 911 for my father who fell off a latter no service and I called them and they said I had a bad phone but I just purchased it last month and every Nextel phone I have ever owned never work in SE. I mean every new phone that Nextel brings out I have bought it but now I'am done no more faketel.

Complained like HELL! This intersection is less than a mile away from the Capitol! This whole area just sucks, and there is no reason for it. Service has improved a bit becuase a bunch of my co-workers complained too. If you live in this area, call Verizon. Open a trouble ticket. They just need a new tower.

Bars don't count in this area. Sitting in one spot, I'll get a read of 1-2-3 bars in 10 seconds, and calls get dropped (too many times to count) anyway.

I rate the reception average because it varies between 5 bars and 0 bars while I'm standing still. Whether in my office (which has big windows) or driving, a call can be dropped at any time. I miss calls all the time because the phone doesn't ring and a minute later it chimes that someone left me a voice mail message. The treo chimes when it switches between digital and analog and sometimes it does it so much I turn the sound off and miss calls that way. Its not the phone, because I have 5 phones on my account and 3 different models and they all do this. I've been a Sprint customer for a long time and the reception used to be much better. The problems began about 1-2 years ago. If I didn't have 5 phones and a long contract I would change carriers, but I'm hoping they work our their network problems.

Standing on the middle of the National Mall, downtown Washington DC, if I am lucky enough to get a bar, it always states Roaming, Roaming? this is home, how can I be roaming in my own home town. The sooner I get rid of Cingular the better, I wish AT&T was back
