I get 4 bars and the phone still goes to voice mail and then beeps me. I have updated the software but Sprint just says "too bad".Was this review helpful to you?
Constant droped calls when on line for more than three mins. Sometimes get 4 bars, but then goes down to 2 and below. Sprint service says im being droped by high usage problems in area. Seems like other callers are taking over mine, because of my weaker reception.Was this review helpful to you?

With AT&T TDMA I can't call or receive calls from home (3rd floor apt. in the central west end) or work (9th floor of McDonnell Peds). Reception around Wash U Medical School is also very bad, only 3 bars at best. So far I only get good reception at the Wash U undergrad campus and in the parking lot of Schnucks on Lindell. I have dropped all of my calls... so I will be cancelling my service with AT&T.Was this review helpful to you?

We pay too much so we expect too much! Phones are just low power 2 way radios. And why can't the galleria mall get some repeaters in there for us? Since the new Cingular merger I am getting the best reception ever. Even in parts of bourbon Missouri on the meramec my phone works. Sprint, Nextel, Verizon... no service. Those signal bars on your phone are subjective to whatever the phone maker deems signal strength and not every phone has the same ability to keep a low signal. I have Nokia 8390, Siemens S56 and Motorola v70. The v70 is choppiest, the Siemens hands down sounds the best. The Nokia works very well but sounds a bit more harsh than the Siemens, which holds a signal very well.Was this review helpful to you?

Reception is poor to bad in my apartment, although I can use my cell phone outside. One block away, the reception is good.Was this review helpful to you?
I realize the area won't let towers be built, but since I am out here most of the time, I am unable to have reliable phone calls without experiencing dropped signals. Have upgraded software, but may have to try new phone as well. Elevation is good and no buildings in line of sight, but can't tell where closes tower is located to verify no obstructions.Was this review helpful to you?
