I always get at least 4 bars, never a dropped call in my neighborhood area and most of the Milwaukee area. There is a section of highway when heading south on 45 right around Goodhope Rd. where I will have dropped calls about 50% of the time. Over all I have been pleased with T-Mobile service. I will say that there is zero reception in the most Northern parts of Wisconsin. I travel alot to Mellen, Cable, and other far Northern cities and have never had reception. I have been told by people at T-Mobile that there should be service in those areas, but there isn't. Maybe this will change in the future. As I said, T-Mobile has been a good service provider and I would recommend it.

i love this phone. I recently had cingular, and they had ok reception but it cost to darn much. I switched to Sprint and with the fair and flexible plan they work with my budget abd if I use 200 of my 1,000, I only pay 29.99 for the mins I used not the full price! the reception for my Sprint is awesome!

rumor has it that former AT&T customers are getting poor reception because Cingular is shutting down the old towers to try to force the old AT&T customers to switch to Cingular (a.k.a more expensive) plans

I have great service everywhere except in this area. It is close to an airport, so Cingular uses that excuse on me. My roommate is on Sprint, and his works fine. I also have a Nextel phone for work, and it works fine at home.

Just switched from old AT&T to new Cingular. If at all possible, reception is WORSE! Think I will switch us to Verizon, as they have 12 towers in 5 mi. radius -- while Cingular has two (2) in 10 mi. radius.

My phone from Cingular sucks. Almost every call I have to redial, get a dropped signal or can barely hear. I am going to switch to US Cellular or Verizon.

Worst. Phone service. Ever. I purchased a phone and they told me, because I moved from Chicago to Milwaukee, that I could still keep my old ZIP in Chicago. However, the phone did not work in my home. It worked everywhere else pretty much, but not at home. They then told me, after I asked to get out of the contract because I was unable to use the phone, that in many cases the phone does not work if you keep a number from antoehr city. I had also purchased a phone for my mom still in Chicago. I was paying for two phones monthly but not using mine at all. Their rep told me the phones don't have to work and service is not guaranteed. I was astonished. After tiring of their "lines" I cancelled the service at a whopping cost of $300. I felt I'd be better off without the aggravation and, for a year of bills without usage I may have lost a little more by cancelling but not much. I will never use US Cellular again. Their customer service is not service at all--they appear to be desperate for contracts and their people seem to read scripts regardless of the circumstances presented to them. I was a customer for 10 years. I will never be a customer of theirs agains.

Cingular coverage is horrible. if you plan on doing business with your phone go to Verizon. you can't hold a phone call for more than 5 min. GSM sucks! if you are in GSM area you still get dropped calls and if your not in GSM your dead..
