Great reception BUT Do not use this cell phone company unless you are residing in Eastern NC! I just moved and am facing staggering bills upwards of $400 when I only used to pay $65 a month due to the use of "other cell towers, which cause a huge fee to US Cellular." Then I was told I breached my contract by moving away from Eastern NC. I am looking for a carrier here but looks like no one is happy. Does anyone have any good reccomendations???

Used to be fine until a few weeks ago. Now, everybody in the office that has Cingular is complaining about an almost universal dip in coverage throughout the metro area.

I often have no reception or a "searching for signal" messege in my home, but if I stand on one leg, arms straight, turn my cap on backwards and blink my eyes every 45 seconds the reception comes in perfect. Oh! did I mention it has to be done only from 2am til 2:15.

I have Suncom I RARELY have any bars inside my house and cannot make a call go thru the first time. I have constant dropped calls. I just moved here from Mt. Holly and never had ANY problems there. I don't know if it's is because cell towers are scarce due to the airport nearby or what.

Not at all good. OK in the street. But who wants to stand in the street to hold a cell phone conversation?

I get good reception practically everywhere. I like the service. I just wished they offered roll-over minutes / text and a family plan.

I have one or two bars... rarely three. And sometimes even with 3 bars I drop calls. Sprint reception is the worst! Not to mention I can barely use it in my home.

Sprint reception in this area is horrible. I cannot have any phone converstations from home, always have to use Landline. Yet, going towards South blvd the reception increases to 4 bars within 4 blocks. Seems like a technical glitch that can be fixed by Sprint it they tried.

Cingular cell service in and around the western portion of Charlotte, among every other place I drive is horrible. Consistently get dropped calls and periods no audio and / or broken voices. Pathetic service. On Wilkinson Blvd, Little Rock Rd, Rt 160, Mt Holly Huntersville Rd... Everywhere I have ever been.

Reception is random from poor to ok. Used to have a Sanyo and never had any problems at home. The Sanyo had a pullout antenna, the new LG doesn't. Sprint is being helpful and trying to fix problem. I think it is a poor phone and am switching back to a Sanyo
