Always 5 bars, except in my basement about 2-3 bars, but I have a cement underground basement. Cingular jus contracted out a new tower in the area and reception hasent been an issue before that, and now its flawless. I definately reccommend Cingular.Was this review helpful to you?
We are in the Clow Creek subdivision, and we get very bad reception.Was this review helpful to you?
Poor reception anywhere. Worst service I have ever had. Forget Cingular! So much for their "Raising the Bar"Was this review helpful to you?
I love my phone, the most features and style I could ask for but the reception is incredible around chicago. It blows my mind how I can live in one of the biggest citys in the US and still have horrible reception. I could understand elevators and parking garages, but when you driving down any major street or highway and your signal cuts out I just loose it and I want to through my phone in the garbage. And for someone who lives on there phone with my line of work, I just can't have it. I've gone from nextel, to verizon, to Cingular now and there all horrible. Goverment has to do something about it cause cell phone companies have people over a barrel in this city.Was this review helpful to you?
Frequent dropped calls and loss of signal / no ability to make calls.Was this review helpful to you?
Impossible to use cingular / v551 consistently from home office. Am forced to call back incoming callers from land line and avoid it for any outbounds. Significant portions of area (in addition to noted location) including DG village center, do not have good Cingular gsm coverage! Cingular - please help!Was this review helpful to you?
Can't call from inside the house. Outside in the yard sucks. I can see a tower from my house but I don't know who it belongs to. The service has gotten worse not better as time goes on. Gonna fire up my HAM radio.Was this review helpful to you?
I have no reception in my house. Harlem from 171st St. to 111 St. has no reception. Two way does work, but you get bits and pieces. I have had Nextel for 6 years and would not recommend them to anyone since they merged with Sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
Get 1 bar consistently. Had no issues with Nextel but went to Cingular and it sucks. Thanks for raising the bar Cingular. F.Was this review helpful to you?
