I get pretty good service around Atlanta area. I've had my phone for over 2 months and I've only had 1 dropped call. I-75 NB dowtown going under a bridge.Was this review helpful to you?
Works just like it's supposed to. Great plan too. You really do get more with T Mobile.Was this review helpful to you?

Decent coverage, no dropped calls for me at work or home, though the signal at home is pretty low. I must live at the edge of the tower radius, because I only get 2 bars at home, whereas I get 5 at work.Was this review helpful to you?
I had reception trouble at this location with both AT&T (TDMA) and Sprint, but have had very good success here (as well as in other cities) with Verizon. It even works in my basement.Was this review helpful to you?
I can't complain. It simply works (as it is supposed to do).Was this review helpful to you?
Upgrading to GSM on Cingular was a big mistake. I live one block from Bellsouth / Cingular world headquarters, and can't make a call from inside my home anymore. My wife's CDMA phone works fine here.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon's coverage is BY FAR the best in the Atlanta area. I have been with ATT (TDMA) and Cingular (TDMA) previously. The real advantage is the technology. Verizon's CDMA 1x technology (also used by Sprint) is inherently superior to GSM for several reasons: 1. The range is much longer (CDMA signals can reach 60 miles+ while GSM begins to lose effectiveness around 20 miles or so), 2. CDMA allows much higher network volume (so calls rarely get dropped), and 3. The transition of the signal from cell tower to cell tower is handled more efficiently in CDMA, thereby virtually eliminating dropped calls. FYI, Cingular, based here in Atlanta, continues to have MAJOR problems with GSM implementation. Be warned!Was this review helpful to you?
Cell phone signals are not available on any carrier. This appears to be a complete "dead zone" while plenty of signal strength is available just a few blocks away.Was this review helpful to you?

AT&T's reception is pretty good in the city of Atlanta but forget it if you travel outside the perimeter.Was this review helpful to you?
You can get reception with sprint in any major town or city, but when you go out to the boonies, expect nothing.Was this review helpful to you?
