T-Mobile reception is pretty good in Wichita. In some places, AT&T is better, but those are few and far between. Dropped calls don't happen. Data network is still 2G here, thus a little slow, but several models are WiFi-enabled. Also, many of those models are capable of placing calls / texts / etc. over the WiFi, so if you can't reach a tower, you're fine as long as you can reach the Internet. Probably the best or next to best carrier in Wichita. Watch for their free phones, though. Free phones are free for a reason.Was this review helpful to you?
Alltell Is crap! Over 2 years tons of droped calls Husband hollering at me cause I don't hear the phone ring, and it never did, in our home, missed calls the phone never rings. Got to step outside to get reception to make a call.Was this review helpful to you?
Overall, Alltel pretty much suchs reception wise in this area. It did pretty well around the Wichita area but as soon as you leave city limits you go into roaming. I was told when I bought the phone that I would get decent reception in Augusta but have not found one spot out of Wichita where I am not in roaming. The customer service seemed ok but have only had the phone for one day. Thank god for the 15 day no penalty return policy. I'll be out my activation fees but it's better than never being able to use my phone for the next two years!Was this review helpful to you?
I had to walk outside my work place to the parking lot to get a signal; inside my connection was completely dead. I couldn't even check messages. All the while Verizon users and Alltell, T-Mobile users were inside with no problems. I am going to cancel my plan and pay the penalty.Was this review helpful to you?
I've had AT&T (Cingular) in many parts of the nation. I've always had great reception. Wichita has been another story. I consistently have dropped calls. It doesn't work near my work near McConnell. I checked, and I have a cell tower less than half a mile away from my house, yet the signal is below average upstairs and spotty at best in the basement. What gives? AT&T needs to clean up their act, or they're going to lose a lot of customers.Was this review helpful to you?
I have had T-Mobile for a couple of years now, and it is pretty good. Their plans are cheap, customer service is usually very helpful and MOST of the time I do not have a problem with reception. Lately I have had some problems receiving calls and messages, but my phone is several years old and has been dropped 5 too many times. Overall, T-Mobile is pretty good.Was this review helpful to you?
Poor Reception. Frequent dropped calls. The phone works sometimes in the house and not at all in the basement. I have to forward calls to my landline when I am at home.Was this review helpful to you?
Switched from Verizon to Cingular to get a family plan where all the family is "covered." Terrible mistake. Verizon reception was strong in my basement office, but Cingular frequently drops my calls. In fact, Cingular drops my calls wherever I go in my car. Verizon almost never did. Cingular billing is a mess, and hard to get fixed.Was this review helpful to you?
I have Sprint for work and have been VERY pleased. I have utilized 3G services and never have had problem with my services. Only if they have the iphone I'd be a happy camper for life :( I might switch just for the iphone!Was this review helpful to you?
I always get excellent reception in Towanda. Very spotty as you go south towards Augusta or east towards Wichita.Was this review helpful to you?
