The GSM coverage that Cingular say they have is mostly unuseable. Of course the justification is that they have been busy combining with AT&T - which is the same story. My guess is that they will get the GSM service to an acceptable level about the same time they start to sell G3! Meanwhile customers will suffer very poor service, while US Cellular keeps their superior coverage and service by having MORE TOWERS!

I use T-Mobile service and have had mixed results. Away from the city, on the south side, I sometimes struggle to get 3 bars, bet when downtown, in the basement of many buildings I get all 5. In traveling i've had no service up in the Green Bay area while someone else with Cingular had all 5 bars, in the Gary Indiana area I had all 5 bars, where someone with Cingular also had all 5 bars, but have gone to Chicago and had the best reception compared to everyone else (amazingly almost all carrieres were represeted, us cellular, cingular, and nextel; I had all 5 bars while riding the eL which at points goes underground). Bascially, as long as your are within a "big" city (i hesitate to include milwaukee in there) you'll get great reception, as far as the surrounding suburbs it has been hit or miss.

I'm lucky if I get one bar. I lose more calls then go through.

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!

All phones get poor digital signal. Analog signal is good.

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

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.
