no service whatsoever if you have ATT / CINGULAR service and are inside the Broadstone apartments.Was this review helpful to you?
Terrible reception in this neighborhood with AT&T / Cingular. Been bad for the entire 5 years I've lived here. Not sure why, as towers are located on either side of quadrant, but the bottom line is, coverage stinks anyway. Problem is, no one else has any better coverage here. You can be certain that the 1st carrier to give great coverage here will inherit a lot of new customers and as quickly as they can opt out of the old plan. It has become a running joke among the neighbors. Outside of our neighborhood, with the possible exception of Central at the M Streets, I have always gotten great coverage. But my wife can clam the same on a different provider. So, we are really just waiting for someone to improve the home reception and that's where we'll sign on.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint installed a new tower about two years ago in this area. Since then, it is extremely rare that any calls are dropped in my house. Much better than wife's At&T recept.Was this review helpful to you?
McCommas and McMillan This will mirror many of the previous comments about poor service in this area for almost all carriers, but Cingular / AT&T in particular. When I moved to here in 2005 my brother had lived here a while already and had warned me about the spotty coverage, but I didn't understand the scope if it until I saw it for myself... .I haven't had cell coverage this poor -anywhere- since 1998 or before. Bars jump up and down, but they are rarely an accurate indicator anyway. Coverage does seem to be worst at peak usage times, which would validate that the towers and their amplification capability are extremely overloaded. When that happens, every single connection to that tower suffers. Even when calls are connected, they never get better than 'grainy', full of pops and dropped words. Reception is so much clearer at my office (Arlington has better coverage than uptown!), I had to set up separate volume profiles on my phone for home and work. Looking at the tower map on this site, it's clear that there's a large area here with almost no (registered(towers). Bordered by Highland Park on the W, loop 12 on the N, White Rock Lake (or further) on the E, and Lemmon on the S. I don't know if it's zoning or what, but nobody seems to be in any hurry to cover this area better.Was this review helpful to you?
"Cingular - fewest dropped calls"... NOT! Within my apartment and within 5 miles of it, calls drop constantly, usually after 10-20 minutes. "Network unavailable" errors prevent outgoing calls 5-10 minutes after drop. This happens daily. In this area, Sprint / Nextell was even worse; I was unable to receive calls or place them with unacceptable frequency, ie daily. 6 calls to Cingular customer support have been useless. they have so suggestions, no solutions, and no explanation except this: one tech person said that Cingular towers were simply operating at maximum capacity, and could not handle the network traffic in this area. Nothing can be done until more Cingular towers are built or acquired. I am shopping for a new wireless carrier, and hoping this area is not the Bermuda Triangle or wireless service.Was this review helpful to you?
"Cingular - fewest dropped calls"... NOT! Within my apartment and within 4 miles of it, calls drop constantly, usually after 10-20 minutes. "Network unavailable" errors prevent outgoing calls 5-10 minutes after drop. This happens every day.

I am shopping for a new carrier. It could be that this area is a Bermuda Triangle for wireless. Sigh.Was this review helpful to you?
I always get 5 bars in and around oaklawn, Uptown, downtown. Including Central Expressway and Tollway. Only bad areas in metroplex are some parts of Highland Park and all of Hillcrest Ave. from Lovers Lane to LBJ 635.Was this review helpful to you?
This location is not to bad, on top floor of a two story apartment complex and when I had GSM service it was real bad. My new phone CU500 uses 3G and this seems to work much better.Was this review helpful to you?
