No reception whatsoever in buildings on Bolling AFB, and no reception in most areas away from buildings and trees! I have to go all the way down to the waterfront to get any decent amount of reception! Most of the time, I have to go near a certain window in my building to get reception, and even then it's only 2 bars max! I'm not sure if it's Cingular or the phone, but i'm thinking that i'll be switching to Verizon in the near future!

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!

Very frequent dropped calls or can not connect to network. A desert for cell coverage.

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.

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
