Bad, Bad, Bad! I have no reception in my house and very little reception outside in the yard. If I make a call, it usually says "Call Failed." If I make or receive a call that goes thru, the call is either dropped or the voice fades in and out and you can barely hold a conversation. Customer service is not very accomodating. Their attitude seems to be, "Oh well, nothing we can do about it." Would definitely not recommend Cingular in this area, altho I seem to be stuck with it for a year. At least I only signed up for a one year contract.Was this review helpful to you?
Nextel has almost no reception through many areas of Plainfield and Minooka. You will be on a phone call and the call gets dropped and the phone goes to no service most of the time.Was this review helpful to you?
poor reception, sometimes not recieving voice mails til days after they arrive, dropped calls, basically everything bad about a cell provider exists right here..contacted Nextel about it and was told outright that due to this area being lower income, no prospected sites to improve service..only 1 tower covering alot more than 3 miles... cancelling service once contract ends... if you live in the kankakee area in illinois DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!Was this review helpful to you?
Gotta love my SonyEricsson T62u. When there is poor GSM coverage, it switches to TDMA. I have found almost no place that I have no coverage.Was this review helpful to you?
I had Nextel with plenty of issues (i730 and i90c). Switched to T-Mobile (V600) with better success. Reception in joliet area is spotty, but crest hill and near St. Francis College not that great. Everywhere else I've gone around Chicagoland, no problems.Was this review helpful to you?
Just switched from TDMA to GSM, horrible mistake. I had excellent signal strength with the old TDMA. Now all I get are missed calls. I can't even use the thing in my yard or inside a building or restaraunt. The customer service wasnt too hot either. I might just buy out of my contract.Was this review helpful to you?
