T-Mobile (at least HTC models: Dash and Wing) has been nearly perfect every place I've been in VB: from home down to and including intersection of Holland and PA Rd. I've even had excellent service in the Lynnhaven Mall area (where Cingular and Verizon have NO service). Buffalo, NY, and southern Ontario have also been excellent. Limited travel to Europe has also provided excellent service. I've never been without service. I must add, however that the Blackberry Pearl did occasionally not have a signal. HTC + T-Mobile = excellent service!

I was originally with SunCom but didn't re-sign with Cingular when they bought my contract or something. But an unlimited or high minute plan with Cingular would have cost a fortune. I first switched to nTelos but coverage in general wasn't great in Virginia Beach. I took the phone back during the trial period and tried Alltel. Alltel's plans aren't unlimited but they have the unlimited calling to any 10 numbers with my circle so it's basically unlimited calling for me. The coverage around here is excellent also. The phone is just about always on full signal, it doesn't matter if I'm at the apartment building or at Wal-Mart or at one of the malls or anywhere really. I also know Regent is covered great because I live pretty close to there and drive by it every day. I don't even look at the signal meter anymore I just expect to be able to make a call. Overall, I would say Alltel is the way to go around here because the coverage is just perfect around here. It's much better than even others I know with Verizon or Cingular and they have some good plans for people like me that need about unlimited minutes but they also have a lot of basic plans too and pre-paid. I guess I've become sort of a fan but I'm just happy with the product and service I got and am enjoying the experience after the trouble I had elsewhere.

Even indoors, the Alltel signal is great around here. Not even indoors can I remember the signal dropping down below half way and I can make or receive a call anywhere. Full signal at my aparment village and about everywhere in Virginia Beach I normally travel. The hospital where I work (Sentara Virginia Beach) is really bad about blocking a signal but it works throughout with Alltel. I've heard Alltel is on that 850 MHz which means it penetrates better indoors and goes on further from the tower. I'm not sure exactly but the entire area around here is covered great, even problem areas others report with other providers. I'm on a family plan and get 2 lines, unlimited My Circle (Any 10 numbers), free nights, free weekends, and 900 daytime minutes for $69.99. Much better than I could find from any other provider.

Terrible reception in apt. Calls drop and fail to connect all the time. Cannot get signals half the time when in malls. Have to stay close to patio or windows to make a descent call. Sometimes, even outside i'll get a network error message. It might be the phone but I never had these problems before the merge with AT&T. Put 2 and 2 together. Im checking out some other companies.

I always get great reception all over Virginia Beach and all of Hampton Roads really. I've never had any billing issues but customer service has been real nice and patient helping me figure out My Account online. Always on full signal consistently in area. Full signal at the Pembroke mall, at my apartment, down by the oceanside, and at Mt. Trashmore. Inside Lynnhaven mall the signal drops down to 3 bars but I can still make and hold a call without a problem throughout the whole thing. Very happy with service and I would recommend it to others.

Always drop calls in this area, have changed phones within the same contract, nothing works. I use other people's Sprint or Cingular phones in those areas when I can use my Nextel. I have no problems with the other carriers.

I get great service wherever I go with Sprint. I can only think of one time since I've had the phone that I didn't have service and that was in a bathroom with no windows. I had T-Mobile and I was lucky to get one bar in my house and my calls were dropped 75% of the time. No problem now though.

Man I am very sorry to say this, just because I am a district manager for Think Wireless (We Sell Cingular), not sorry of think wireless but cingular, I never thought I would sell a product that I didnt like. But it so happened. Every Where I went, from some theater to some other theater basically most of that part (cant say much because I didnt see the rest of the city) service sucked. service sucked the WHOLE way on US Route 29. That was a nightmare. The road itself is so freakin scary, then on TOP of that no service, I thought some blair witch was about pop off. lol. But Lynchburg Was fun though, first time there, visiting my Fianc`e and her family, it was great.

I loved Alltel for the first year, then started getting bad reception in Richmond where most of my family lives. Also have recently received bills with a lot of overage minutes which I tried to dispute but was told their computers are always accurate. Unable to resolve, so I'm looking to switch to nTelos or TMobile.
