I'll stick with US Cellular. I've been a customer for seven years. From the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in TN to the Peaks of the Olympic Mountains in Washington State I have been tracked down by family and friends. I appreciate the execellent service and to be honest the only way I can be sure I'm not going to be disturbed by a call is to turn the darn phone OFF. US Cellular customer service has been excellent over the years with only one young clerk in a store that needed to check her attitude. OverWas this review helpful to you?
Verizon came to Tulsa on Thanksgiving and reception is great. Much better than running on extended network on U.S. Cellular. No dropped calls any more and high speed broadband EV-DO is available everywhere I've tried since thankgiving 06Was this review helpful to you?
Cingular has been bad for many years in this area. ATT was better but not much. Dropped calls and missed calls. Sometimes I feel like I am in the Cingular commercials - but they are telling me I won't have this problem with Cingular>>>Was this review helpful to you?
Dropped calls have increased since merger. No reception on Hwy. 75 between I-44 and the Creek turnpike. No reception on Yale between 85th and 91st. For every call I make or take while I'm driving, about 1 / 2 of them end up dropping. I'm not kidding. I had fewer dropped calls ten years ago with AT&T than I have now. You would think that in ten years that competition alone would make service improve. Hasn't happened with Cingular. Every time I make a call I have to preface the conversation with: "I might lose you because I'm on my cell phone." Cingular blows.Was this review helpful to you?
Don't have many problems at all in South Tulsa or even driving around Tulsa. I work at St. Johns Hospital and some of my friends have much better reception than I do. I have to walk out to the open area of the parking garage to get bars, I don't get any bars in the hospital. My phone is older and I plan on upgrading. I go back and forth between upgrading and changing companies to either Sprint or Cingular. I also want reception in Mexico. So any suggestions, please post away!Was this review helpful to you?
I live in the country between Mounds and Kellyville and I get excellent reception. I have had service with U.S. Cellular for 10 years and love it. At one time I also had a Cricket phone and got poor reception everywhere. U.S. Cell offers great packages like free incoming calls and free m2m. Its true they dont have a huge variety of phones to choose from but every phone I have ever purchased from them has been at a great price and the equipment never fails!Was this review helpful to you?
I work for Sprint at the City Plex Towers and have access to the mapping tools that show coverage for any area. I know for a fact that Tulsa's Sprint coverage is horrible. In addition, Sprint is the only carrier to outsource its Customer Support to the Phillipines and India. I would not use Sprint if someone payed me. I have Cingular. To put the difference in signal reception in perspctive, I work in the 20 story tower, 14th floor, and have full signal in each of the 3 towers. The Sprint LG 325 on the other hand, does not pick up 1 bar. So, between the GSM phone and the CDMA phone, you have a difference of full signal strength and no signal strength. And to the people posting about AT&T using Cingular towers, AT&T used TDMA, not GSM. The towers are not the same. That's why Cingular required you to swap to Cingular. Thy're getting rid of TDMA. Also, my manger has Tmobile, and his T-Mobile signal indoors, 12-15 stories up, has about 3 bars normally. The other day, he lost his T-Mobile signal completely and picked up my Cingular signal! This goes to show that even between carriers using the same network type, there are differences, and it depends on that carrier's network whether or not you get good reception.Was this review helpful to you?
Amazing Service in general. Please remember, cell phones were never designed to be a replacement for land lines, however Cingular really comes close...Was this review helpful to you?
Excellent reception all over Tulsa and surrounding areas. Have been able to get reception almost to Kellyville going towards OKC, just past Mounds going towards Okmulgee, past Skiatook going north, and going east the signal stops abruptly after going town hill towards Kerr Mclellan navigation channel on Hwy. 412. RARELY lose reception anywhere in between these locations unless I'm in an elevator.Was this review helpful to you?
Cell service has always been bad, but in the last month has really gone down hill. Lots of dropped calls, one bar or no bars, always rolling over to roam and then roam is bad too. I have made a complaint to Sprint. With the other complaint from the same area I hope they do something. Neighbour reports similar problem with Sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
