I just purchased a Motorola V3. Recently I was on a conference call that lasted 1.5 hours. I was in my car and had to go west to Waukesha / Pewaukee area. Then traveled through downtown Milwaukee and then north on I43 to Mequon. For the entire conference call I did not drop once. Since I have always had Cingular some areas passed would have dropped me with my old phone. I thank the Pat at Advanced Electronix / D and B Auto Radio in West Allis for the advice to purchase the V3 it's worth the investment.Was this review helpful to you?
US Cellular in Milwaukee has always giving me great reception. Even in our basement garage where others have asked what carrier I had because they can't get any service while I get at least 3 bars. Sprint was terrible in Milwaukee. Verizon was ok.Was this review helpful to you?
Everywhere I go US Cellular has 4 to 5 bars. Indoors the lowest its been is 3. Though sometimes I get a noisy line. More often in certian areas. Roaming up north is a different story though. In three lakes, WI I had one bar. Phone didn't ring most of the time, straight to VM, and I had trouble making calls. Not us cellulars fault. Overall they got southeast WI well covered.Was this review helpful to you?
Excellent reception all around the area. In the basement of my 75 year old home I am 5 bars.Was this review helpful to you?
I always have five bars everywhere in the city (except for my apartment). Also, I get at least three bars when I'm visiting my family out in rural areas.Was this review helpful to you?
Even though my phone is a pretty simple model, it works great. I always get 5 bars in the milwaukee and surrounding areas. What I really like is that my phone is both analog and digital. So when I am hunting up north my phone will automatically switch to analog and I can still make and recieve calls, even when my friends with their all digital models cannot. The analog mode drains the battery quicker, but I usually leave the phone off. At least I know that my phone will work if there is ever an emergency. All in all, I am very happy with both the phone and the service. P.S. My girlfriend had T-Mobile and it was the WORST! I can't tell you how much she hated it. They offered her a huge discount just to stay a customer, and she still dropped them.Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T Wireless (TDMA)
How do I know that these reports are not made up by the companies themselves? I could just type in that Verizon is the worst and that AT&T is the best. Or is it the other way around?Was this review helpful to you?
Cingular is the best carrier I've had. In all parts of the city I have 5 bars and know dropped calls. Cingular you REALLY ROCK!Was this review helpful to you?
This is my second Verizon phone and though I love the service, I can't get any reception in my office building. Neither can one of my employees who has a Sprint phone. The only person that can get a signal is the one with Cingular service.Was this review helpful to you?
Horrible reception. Phone does not work. This is my second sprint phone. They don't let me out of my contract and constantly put my issues off without getting back to me. They say they will "install new software" into my phone. This has never helped. Sprint is by far the worst provider I have ever had.Was this review helpful to you?
