T-Mobile has very strange reception. Some areas I get 5 bars yet I'll get dropped calls and other days I can have 2 and have no problems. I have noticed that even the weather effects the reception with these guys but you just can't beat the value.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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!
