I just switched carriers and for once I see all 4 bars up. I can email, instant message, text, call and browse the net.

T-Mobile has very little to no reception in this area of town. We have two lines of service and two different phones and for the most part I cannot make phone calls in my home and need to run outside to be able to hold a call. The signal strenght fluctuates constantly and most of my incoming calls don't even ring on our two lines they just go directly to voicemail because. T-Mobile has been the most unhelpful -- insisting that they provide adequate service in the area. BTW, when you make a service complaint all they do is just look it up on their little map to see if they "provide service" where you live and / or if there are any major intteruptions. Since they don't actually come out and try and make a phone call from where you are having issues they will always tell you that they are providing satisfactory service and not offer to help further.

No signal pickup along I43 going north. Does Verizon serve this area?

I just a new Motorola Q to hopefully get better reception, but it is still horrible. Verizon has horrible coverage in Milwaukee.

my company switch us from us cell to cigular in may 2005. intially they were terrible,drop calls poor or no reciption in a major city.We complained and they didn't bill us for 3 months I think calls were dropped while car were in motion due to soft wear problems with merger with AT&T sysytem. soft wear up grades to phone helped and more towers have improved some of the problems. Now we rarely drop calls and reception has improved to 2-3 bars from 1.

Just switched from AT&T which Cingular was really not supporting. Had hat plan primarily for 7 pm night plan as we have numerous contacts in Florida. The Cingular coverage was ok (not great) but customer service was the pitts. When phone died I had to look on the secondar market as Cingular would not sell me a phone to work on AT&T network. Have just switched to Sprint because of their plan for nights and weekends starting at 7. In two days I have had more dropped calls than in a month with ATT / Cingular. No coverage at all in basement garage with Sprint but always had coverage with Cingular. am currently in 15 day "Look / See" period with Sprint and am seriosly thinking of going back to Cingular despite my seriusly dislike of their customer relations. I selected an LG phone because of the good luck I had with my ATT LG phone. Don't care for this phone.

I've never had so much trouble with a phone in 6 years. Both my roommate and I get awful reception which fades in and out by the minute, regardless of if you dance around the apartment or sit stone cold still. I jump from 0-3 bars and have had more dropped calls than 5 / hour, on average. If I run outside, I can get anywhere from 0-4 bars, but regardless the calls get dropped and there are times when I can't make or receive calls for up to 5 minutes. Usually I can hear the other person but they stop talking to me because they can't hear me beyond the static. The price was right for the plan, but the time spent repeating myself was definitely not worth the extra mintues.

No reception up North in Rome, WI; near Wisconsin Rapids. They tell you it will work but it never does even with GPS. Their Service is okay but you spend so much time on the phone. the phones break easily. The two year contract sucks. I'm thinking of buying a Go Phone or cancell all together.

For 6 years Verizon has been promising to make it possible to receive and send phone calls in the village. Still ain't happening. I miss calls here all the time and it's a problem.
