4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Wauwatosa, Milwaukee, WI 53213 |

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.

This is a review of my girlfriend's service, actually. She lives right on the lake near South Shore Yacht club, just south of Russell on Superior. She gets very little reception in her apartment. Calls frequently come in but get dropped within a minute or two. Outside, reception is slightly better but still pretty awful. Friends with ATT report about the same difficulty, with between 0 and 2 bars in and around her apartment.

I live about two blocks southwest of Howell and Lincoln in Bay View. I get generally very good reception outside as I walk up and down the streets of Bay View, which I do very frequently. In my home, though, I only get average reception with a fair number of dropouts and dropped calls. Dropped calls aren't terribly common, though. I'd call it OK inside, very good outside. The web works well enough inside and outside. At work about a mile from I45 off Main St. in Menomonee Falls, I get no reception inside and only decent reception outside. The web is sketchy or unavailable.

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.

Nextel boast that their coverage area has improved. Could've fooled me. I can't get a signal in my living room, or much anywhere else in my house.

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.

Power keeps bouncing from 0 to 3 bars, sometimes even "No Service". Droped calls all the time. Can not get service to make a call. After dialing most times NO CONNECTION. AT&T seems to have gotten worse since it was Cingular!

I get great reception pretty much everywhere in the country except in my house and inside my office (Teutonia and Florist)!
