Good reception in Palos Park and Orland Park. My prior carrier was Cingular. Reception in the house was spotty with dead zones. T-Mobile comes in clearly in all rooms. Spent the weekend at Fox Lake and got 4 to 5 bars everywhere I went. Customer service with T-Mobile is much better than Cingular. I had to call to fix the voice mail on one of the phones. T-Mobile got me to a live competent person DIRECTLY. With Cingular there are multiple layers of buttons to press before getting service. Another pleasant surprise is that T-Mobile live support 24 / 7.Was this review helpful to you?
The reception is just dismal. Sometimes I get three bars, but it drops to one as soon as I start a call. About 75% of my calls are dropped.Was this review helpful to you?
Horrible coverage in this area, especially inside of my house. I may, on rare occasions, get 2 bars if I'm standing right next to a window with it up. If I go downstairs, forget it... no bars at all. I know Isenberg said that cell phones weren't meant to operate efficiently in homes, but this is the first carrier that I've had where coverage is this bad in such a densely populated area. Bolingbrook BADLY needs more cell towers. (One on Boughton and Schmidt wouldn't hurt.)Was this review helpful to you?
I hate this Cingular phone and their add about 5 bars, I have cinglular and they are worst, can hear or some time I can not go thru, the call does not go thru from my home. I hardly get more than 2 and I wonder around all in my home close to window or doors.Was this review helpful to you?
outside, everything goes ok, inside my house, its hit or miss. it works by windows. Verizon has always had poor performance everywhere, it wasn't for everyone being on verizon, I wouldn't be. Cingular was awesome. never had any problems, anywhere. from downtown naperville to bolingbrook, to schaumburg. Cingular is the best network, but since hardly anyone I know has it, their free mobile to mobile means nothing, and since they don't offer unlimited text messages, or pics or anything unlimited, I switched. sad I did because of reception but glad I did cuz at least when I have it I can use it a million times cheaper.Was this review helpful to you?

Cingular Tech Service has been trying to improve my reception around my home without success since on bought the phone and switched to the Cingular Network on 7 / 7 / 05. Previously, I had great reception using the AT&T network and a 2 year old Nokia. Cingular tried to reprogram my phone to search for the AT&T towers but could not do it. Then, they told my to manually set my Netork to the 850 / 1900 band. No better. The best they can do is tell me to be patient as they migrate the AT&T network into the Cingular Network. If it is not better by this Saturday, my phones (2) are going back the Cingular.Was this review helpful to you?
In the house almost impossible to get a connection. Outdoor perfromance improves by a bar or two bout most calls cut in and out an eventually get dropped.Was this review helpful to you?
No reception at all inside work, Ford city mall, or near and around the airport. Only when you walk outside u get 1 bar of service. Tried 3 different phones. Samsung, Motorola, and LG. All did the same thing. Cingular told me it was my problem. I'm switching to Sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
