Cingular customer service is the only thing worse than its reception. I have to move around the house constantly to get some reception and must keep the conversation short. Cingular will change back to AT&T, but unfortunately it is going to be only a cosmetic change (just a name.) The big brother won't have me for long! Switching to T-Mobile which has improved a lot and does not spy on you while trying to control the internet!

Cingular is terrible in DC. I drop calls all the time and the signal inside buildings almost non-existing - I'm changing to Verizon when my plan is done in July (YEAH I CAN'T WAIT) By the way Motorola is also been a terrible experience. Either Cingular or the phone drops calls all the time - about 15 to 20 minutes into a conversation!

I use this phone for business out of my house all day long. Very, very few problems with coverage. Both this phone, and the Treo 650 could use some help in the bug department. I average one major bug a month. Sprints phone technical help is pretty good - when you get them on the phone. Their in-store help is the worst I have ever seen. Avoid the retail stores like the plague!

My apartment is adjacent to the GW undergraduate campus and my signal is spotty at best. It will be 4 bars one second and zero the next, without my having moved. It averages around one bar while inside buildings.

Terrible reception in medical school and in or around hospital. Anywhere else around Foggy Bottom is ok and around the undergrad campus is fine.

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.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | 16th St. Near the JCC | Intersection of 16th and Qst, Washington, DC 20009 |

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.
