I drive down Ogden from York to Rt. 83 on my way to / from work every day, and the cell reception on Cingular along Ogden in that stretch is poor. When I'm on the phone, it cuts out a lot. As soon as I get onto Rt. 83, it improves.Was this review helpful to you?
It's a crapshoot as to whether or not I'll have reception at my house. Also drops out regularly on Washington South of 75th and on I88. Nextel says they'll check it out (for five years now); they're no help. Nextel service is poor overall, and their rates are high.Was this review helpful to you?
Cuts out inside my home. Sometimes works outside. In traveling around suburbs, sometimes dials a number but then the person I'm calling can't hear me, even though I can hear them. Very annoying. I can't wait until my contract ends.Was this review helpful to you?
T-Mobile always drops out in this area. Every time I make a call, it always makes a weird static noise. DONT GET TMOBILE!Was this review helpful to you?

AT&T Wireless (GSM)
Reception in this area is absolutely terrible. I often have to go outside to get a useable signal, and any call over 10 minutes is almost always dropped. The NEC phone was very expensive and touted as having excellent reception but is far, far, FAR worse than any of the cheapo phones I used 4 years ago. I could not be less pleased with AT&T's service: terrible service, expensive plans, no reception.Was this review helpful to you?
Half the time I get 'No Service' - If you do get service for a minute consider the call dropped immediately afterwards. Same near my house at 88th Ave and 100th ST Palos Hills and Hickory are horrible areas for Nextel coverage. I've spoken to customer service on numerous occasions and they admit lacking badly needed additional tower(s) in the area. Same deal with Sprint and AT&T Cingular and Verizon over here. Stick with T-Mobile - the only carrier that has enough towers in the areaWas this review helpful to you?
I've had this phone for nearly a ayear now, and my reception has been excellent throughout this area.Was this review helpful to you?
Not bad. I get most bars inside and out. Really good considering there is a large AT&T microwave tower right there on 63rd and fairview.Was this review helpful to you?
I am not sure I am ready to blame Sprint -- definitely DO NOT use the Samsung N400 phoneWas this review helpful to you?
