Everyone complains about sprint, but I travel the state and don't have a problem. Even up toward green bay, and adams county, I may go into roaming but it's like 5 bars. I have to say of all the carriers I've had Sprint is by far the best reception!

In my office I had full bars and never had a drop out with Cellular One. With my Verizon, I usually have 0 to 1 bar and have to step outside if I want to complete a call. Usless for me.

used to get good reception. since november 1, 2007 reception has gone to poor. 0 to 1 bar inisde, slightly better outside. tried multiple phones without any luck. don't go T-Mobile if you do not have a land line as a back up.

I travel throughout the country and owned them since Air Touch days. Recently moved from Waukesha to downtown (East Side) area. I have to say that Verizon has serious issues with service from the east side all the way to the lake. I've complained at stores and at corporate... no suggestions other than sign another 2 year contract and talking about "new every 2." I requested an area survey 4 times and each time they can't find my request in my notes. Friends with Verizon phones drop like crazy too when in the area. Now my work cell "cingular" has no problems indoors or outdoors on the east side. Sad... but I now plan to leave the "network that works for you."

I used to have Cingular. I was totally in love with their coverage. I never had a dropped call or any problems with volume of the call or static. But then when AT&T and Cingular merged my coverage started to suck, so I canceld my contract. Right now I use a T-Mobile phone and the coverage seems to be pretty decent, I hardly ever have dropped calls, unless I'm out in Mem Falls. And obviously it doesn't work up north, seeing as how US Cellular is the only phone company around those parts. But I'm considering switching to Sprint, I've heard good things and the suppossedly ahve the fastest intel.

Can't complain about reception here. Haven't had any problems with reception around Milwaukee area in general. I wish they would roll their minutes, then they'd be ideal.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | County Line Rd.(Q) | Appleton Ave., Menomonee Falls, WI 53051 |

Cell reception not surprising since this location is within 1 / 4 mile of a major business area. What matters more to me is the 2G-EDGE connectivity on the iPhone - it's also near perfect in this area. AT&T EDGE Coverage maps indicate this area as not so good for 2G-EDGE. This zip is Menomonee Falls, but I'm right up near the county line and Germantown. The proximity to the 41 and 45 highways may be a factor because I've always had great success with cell phones near freeways and major arteries. Speaking of which, I have found that when on the "edge" of metro areas, i.e. the out-lying suburbs, reception for everything is fair to perfect if you can travel the main roads - regardless of your cell company.

absolutely NO service in my house, but there are 3 spots on my driveway where I do get reception for about 5 minutes! it took us a couple months of complaining to finally get our service cancelled without charge- the customer service is terrible. Even one of the customer service managers admitted that WI has bad AT&T service coverage.

Because of my job, I go EVERYWHERE. Perfect at Commerce and Pleasant, nothing at Humboldt and North - less than one mile away. I have complained in the past to no avail. Updating your roam list helps a little bit. Verizon coverage is usually very reliable. Problems on the East side, especially near the Lake. North Shore coverage is decent, except near the Lake.
