Constantly 3-4 bars. Doesn't ever break up unless its obviously the other persons phone. Only dropped one call in a year of living here.Was this review helpful to you?
I have had three phones in three weeks, so far none of them work as well as the Cigular service that I had for 10 years. Almost no reception in my home - spoke with reps from were I purchased phone - they said "Sometimes cell phones don't work if it is sunny"?? - did he mean sun spots - or just think that I'm a stupid woman?? Verizon said that the phone could go out of a cell if I moved my head while I was talking - talked without moving my head and lost calls again. Poor service in Palos Park and Heights - friends have similar issues. Wish I spoke with them before I changes service. Now Verizon is going to send out a new phone - after reading all of these messages, I am not hopeful!Was this review helpful to you?
No real problems. Voice mail can take 2 days to get and calls are occassionally dropped. I'm stsying with Sprint PCSWas this review helpful to you?
One Bar in the house, two bars outside. Verizon has finally aknowleged the problem after six months of complaining. Verizon Customer Service Representative States: "The Verizon Phones are not designed to work in residential building."Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T Wireless (TDMA)
I have AT&T tdma service with great reception. I thought I should changed my phone since it is 3 years old. I got a v551 from Cingular and my reception sucked. I thought it was the phone, so I sent it back. It didn't work either. I tried again with the same results. The Service sucked, the Representatives do not understand the technology. They don't know the difference between gsm and tdma. I'm glad I didn't cancel my tdma AT&T phone. The combining of Cingular and At&T shlould have never happened. I went to At&T because their customer service and reception was great. Cingular sucks, just check out the Better Business Website.Was this review helpful to you?
I live less that a mile from the towers and I only get 1-2 bars in my house or around the area. The Cingular store by my house said they were doing work in the area. The only thing I can see is that they have some temporary towers next the the water tower set up while they are painting it. Maybe this is a temporary issue?? I work in Oakbrook by the mall and I get 5 bars. Seems like there is some definate coverage issues in the SW suburbs. We could not get a call out in the Woodridge area as well south of I-55 on Lemont Rd. I will go from 2 bars to no service while my phone is sitting on the desk at my house. Very frustrating and to think I switched from Nextel for this service only because I liked the 7100G Blackberry and did not want to carry the 7520 monster around!Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T Wireless (GSM)
Upclass area, crap reception, on any service. My new SMT 5600 doesn't "see" Cingular networks which makes the problem worse.Was this review helpful to you?
I am so frustrated with this service. I get on the freakin kennedy and I cannot have a conversation. If I am able to get a call out, I definatley cannot carry on a conversation. Its the worst. I want to switch so badly I can't even explain the frustration I have. NEXTEL is "DONE" in my book. THE WORSTWas this review helpful to you?
