Reception wise its not horrible, but the phone does cut in a out a lot. I've had nothing but problems with Sprint from day 1. I am glad my contract is over this month! I'm going elsewhere!Was this review helpful to you?
I have been with Alltel for 3 years and would not recommend them to ANYONE. As far as reception they are great but when I started having problems with my MOTO Q (which they had record was a bad phone) they refused for a year to replace the phone for me, after returning it several times and finding that there was nothing I'd done to damage the phone; the customer service people were very rude and very unhelpful. I had to contact a supervisor after being hung up on by a rep. and the supervisor accused me of lying about my phone. FINNALLY after a year of going around with this they said they would give me a new phone for free because of their error but when I got my next bill they charged me for the phone anyways and refused to take the charges away and shut my services off until I pay the bill in full. I just decided to go with another company.Was this review helpful to you?
I have had AT&T (Cingular) for 4 years now. The reception is EXCELLENT everywhere in Wichita (and I mean everywhere.) I also had great luck around surroundings (all the way to Oklahoma.) I am very happy with my cell service. I used it all over North America (US, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rica) with NO problems at all and with NO roaming at all. I also used my phone with great service in the following countries with EXCELLENT coverage: South America: Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Domican Republic, Bolivia, Colombia. Europe: Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Findland, Norway, Italy, Greece, UK, Scotland, Ireland, France, Belgium, Denmark, Russia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Iceland. Middle East: Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, Egypt, Sauid Arabia, Morocco, Turkey. APAC: Singapore, India, Malaysia, Japan, China. South Korea was the ONLY place I had major reception problem.

I have had Cingular / AT&T for 11 years, while living in Alabama and now Wichita. For 8 years with Cingular, I don't think I EVER had a dropped call. As soon as Cingular was bought out by AT&T, we've had dropped calls constantly on all 3-4 phones on our plan (various makes / models) both in Alabama and now in Wichita. I've spent hours with customer service and been told all sorts of things, but nothing makes any difference. I can't afford to cancel contracts on this many phones, but will leave AT&T as soon as our contracts are all up and will never go back.Was this review helpful to you?
I switched in October 2008 to T-Mobile. I have the fancy Dash phone, which is pure junk. My phone gets hot and shuts off, the applications won't work correctly and service is really bad. I call every week to the customer care center, they have sent me new phones and new batteries. Nothing seems to work. I get missed calls and the phone won't even ring. When it does ring, its only a split second. I am very unsatisfied with this phone and service. Not once have they offered to give me credit on my bill for not being able to send texts or have calls. I pay $180 each month for 2 phones. I pay for ring tones that I can't use on the phone, and its it the format suggested by T-Mobile. The customer care line has people answering the phones with accent that makes it hard to understand. I would not recommend the phones or T-Mobile for service. I am looking at switching back to my old carrier, Sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
I can honestly say that Alltel seems to have the best coverage, in and around Wichita, of any of the major carriers. I had Verizon for a long time(3 years) and my girlfriend had Alltel. After a few years of dating, we noticed that there were a number of occassions in which I would have to use her phone because mine (Verizon) didn't have coverage. South and West of Wichita in the more rural communites, Alltel wins hands-down. Inside of Wichita, it's about even. I'm actually using Sprint now because I have / love the Samsung Instinct but still rate the top three carriers, in order of best coverage, as Alltel, Verizon and Sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
Dropped calls, next to no reception. It is this way at work also... I work close to downtown! C-ya T- Mobile.Was this review helpful to you?
I had AT&T for more than 10 years, with almost non-existent reception at my house. After calling them to complain for years, and them promising it will get better soon, I switched to Sprint. No problem getting 5 bars with Sprint at my house.Was this review helpful to you?
cannot receive or place voice call. receive text messages but cannot place one. If you work in this area and NEED service I would look at another carrier!Was this review helpful to you?
I used to have Cingular 8125 and my husband still has older Nokia 8100? 8125? and we still have really decent coverage in and out of the house. I got the iPhone because my brother loves it, but he's in the Washington DC metro and has 3G. We're still on Edge (literally and figuratively) and it is a little slower but still much faster than a manual typewriter and tin can and string setup. We have a place right in the southwest part of Kechi as we're leaving city limits on Woodlawn going over K-96 where we're without a tower and so service will drop right there but we can redial or just wait until we get across the freeway and hit the tower in Bel Aire and it's fine. Another dead spot seems to be on 135 where it intersects with 235 and K-96Was this review helpful to you?
