Some dropped calls, my main gripe is the lack of local phone numbers available. I live in the Milwaukee area, but have a number from Fond du Lac area.

Cingular sucks. I get no reception unless I am in my office of all places, I have tons of dropped calls, I generally have to dial numbers twice to get through, and I get cross over calls at least once a month. It doesn't help that they sold me perhaps the worst cell phone every made and won't let me upgrade it. I am not eligible yet according to my contract and apparently the warrently of the phone expired yesterday so they won't replace the piece of crap either. They said that they would cancel my contract for me if I wanted, and issue a new contract so that I could change phones, but all fees would apply. After an horrible experience with their customer service I am going to a different provider.

The GSM coverage that Cingular say they have is mostly unuseable. Of course the justification is that they have been busy combining with AT&T - which is the same story. My guess is that they will get the GSM service to an acceptable level about the same time they start to sell G3! Meanwhile customers will suffer very poor service, while US Cellular keeps their superior coverage and service by having MORE TOWERS!

My cell phone is my only phone and it doesn't get the best reception. On average, I'll lose a signal about once per hour of conversation at this location.

Get great reception throughout Milwaukee area until I get inside my house. Then we get rotten reception. Lots of fun to get a cell phone call then have to run outside in the winter to talk. T-mobile customer service is awful. Their reps are dumb as rocks, they can't get billing issues straight, and they are often rude. I'm looking for a new carrier.

I get excellent reception almost everywhere (especially at work near I43 and Brown Deer--Sprint was awful but Cingular is great, even inside the bowels of the building) except on the first floor of my house, and sometimes no bars at all in my driveway. A dead spot?

I'm lucky if I get one bar. I lose more calls then go through.

Starting at the corner of 76th St. going west on Bonniwell reception drops to zero and you have no bars for about two miles west and three miles either north or south.

Verizon's coverage on this side of town is somewhat schizo -- occasionally calls get dropped. Sometimes I end up on an Extended Network and have to use the area code to dial a local call. Overall, however, I've been pleased with the service and this phone.
