When I had the connection it was good (4-5 bars). But I would drop calls every 10-15 minutes. Coverage was okay elswhere in Iowa, at least on the major highways. But, overall, Verizon coverage is much better. So I'm going back to Verizon.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon, I Wireless, Cingular, and US Cellular all get horrible reception around this areaWas this review helpful to you?
Outside of the store has good reception but inside its hardly useableWas this review helpful to you?
I made the mistake of switching from ATT to Cingular because I was told because if the buy out that I would need to switch plans. I have never had so many dropped calls in my life! I can't call from anywhere without having to make several attempts and dropping calls like crazy. I agree the customer service is poor as well. I am told to turn my phone off and remove the battery once a day. Now that is high tech for ya... I think walkie talkies have more technology than this service does.Was this review helpful to you?
Never had so many dropped calls. Even worse on the weekends late at nite. Customer Service conviently nonexistant on the weekends. Talked with other Cingular users and same complaints. I can walk around my house and the reception noticeably changes. As with consumer reports I plan to drop this carrier cause I can't use my minutes. I went on a road trip worst reception ever. I had US Cellular before, great reception, but expensive.Was this review helpful to you?
We have now replaced our phones with newer ones, but last year we had great reception all over the Cedar Rapids Metro. Verizon is getting better in Iowa, they still need to improve in Northeast Iowa, but around here, it's great!Was this review helpful to you?
Can't complain I have had IWS, US Cellular, AT&T, Suncom, Verizon, and now Cingular all companies have bad reception through these areas, but I do love my Cingular service so far.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception dropped off shortly after I went from Wright Brothers Blvd.onto I-380. Bars slowly came back up the further south I drove. (IWS).Was this review helpful to you?
pretty decent... as long as you have a tri-mode handset.Was this review helpful to you?
Great coverage everywhere I've been in or around Cedar Rapids. Traveled south to Keokuk county and had great coverage. Traveled north to Mitchell county and had great coverage.Was this review helpful to you?
