Although the reception is quite good in most of Wichita, my phone goes into digital roaming much of the time. Lately, when people call me, the phone doesn't even ring. I moved to Wichita about 6 months ago, and the problems just keep getting worse. Ever since Sprint merged with Nextel things have been going down hill. I just ordered a phone through Cingular and will give it a try. After reading reviews on here, I am fairly convinced it could be even worse than Sprint, and I will be sending the phone back within the 30-day trial. Perhaps the best solution is to move back to Minnesota or Iowa...Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint service has pleased me, I've been with them for 3 years now. In certain types of construction, (ie. steel buildings, concrete buildings) the receptions gets kind of iffy, also in my basement. But... There really isn't much roaming even in little towns hundreds of miles away. You still get Sprint service, and you're never out of your "service area" which means you won't be charged for using someone else's towers / network, ect. For example, I moved to Indianapolis and my phone never worked better without having to change my plan or coverage region. Only downside to Sprint is while in store, you really can't get questions answered regarding phone problems, but I have only had one problem since being with Sprint, they are doing something right...Was this review helpful to you?
I have been with Alltel for 7 years and have had enough. I'm leaving to try Sprint. The signal when I'm at home is "low" with Alltel and this results in dropped calls It is impossible to drive on the highway and have a conversation for more than 30 minutes as the call will drop when you go from one tower to the next or from one county to another. I cannot drive from wichita to newton and have a conversation with Alltel service. I cannot drive from wichita to hutchinson and have uninterrupted phone call. My phone began dropping calls on a daily basis a month ago. It quit working completely about 10 days ago but I cannot leave Alltel until my contract ends. I need my number with my new service but Alltel tells me they will charge me an early leaving fee of $200 X 3 if I change my number. I offered to simply continue paying my Alltel service and transfer my number to Sprint but Alltel says it cannot do that. I use the phone for business and can only call my voice mail every couple of hours to check messages. It is impossible for anyone to contact me directly even though I'm paying for Alltel phone service.Was this review helpful to you?
The reception is getting so bad that I can't make or recieve call from my home - acording to Altel this is right in their coverage - along I35 corridor. I have towers all around me but not for Altel. This is in Butler county at 50th and Santa Fe lake road.Was this review helpful to you?
Alltel is my provider and to me there service is good to excellent.you can go to just about anyware in the state without roming.And my last phone a v710 did excellent its year of service.And like the fact they replaced it with the e815 the only drawback with the e815 is on axcess apps.the weather apps are not there.But could be add ed soon I got the the RAZR its cool... . And mycast 5. weather is the best! If you use your phone to watch the weather.!Was this review helpful to you?
There is a tower near this intersection with strong T-Mobile signal. T-Mobile's 850MHz capable phones can access (without roaming) any Cingular tower, but only if your phone is setup correctly (default settings usually make your phone ignore those towers).Was this review helpful to you?
Terrible reception, lots of dropped calls, from 0 to 2 bars tower strength. Had Sprint before same situation.Was this review helpful to you?
Alltel: When we commute over to wichita our signal is good to excellent. There's a few dead spots from tower to tower but in time they'ill be filled. Before Alltel came to wichita we roam- ed on Verizon's system and the signal was good to excellent.we have 2 v710's and they work ok but id like to upgrade to the e815 or razrv3c. Because of the newer software. End:. Have a safe an happy Memorial Day!...Was this review helpful to you?
I have to give my reception a 5 simply because no matter how many bars I have, I still have crystal clear reception with very little break up. I love Verizion. I can travel any where in the US and have no issues at all.Was this review helpful to you?
this phone has a tampa florida number. I get perfect reception in wichita with the 6010. great customer service. however, while still living in tampa, I was offered a "free upgrade" if I extended my contract. I fell for it, and was given a Siemens phone that dropped nearly every call, rarely accepted calls, and with features such as alarm that did not work. t-mobile was unwilling to take the phone back and cancel the new contract. i switched back to the Nokia and service has been perfect ever since.Was this review helpful to you?
