Never had any problems inside my townhouse or outside.Was this review helpful to you?
T-Mobile has been a disaster both in this area and throughout the country (I travel a lot). Digital audio looses sync about once every three minutes for about 3-5 seconds plus calls often drop and call initialization fails. Signal is often blocked in buildings that other carriers don't have a problem with. The price was great but I'll be leaving T-Mobile just as soon as my contract ends. Verizon in this area was great (but it has terrible prices).Was this review helpful to you?
Not sure what is going on, but service has gotten noticeably worse in the last few months. For example, at home now (off of Oaklawn and Congress), I have to move around the house to get a clear signal. Also, when I drive from downtown Dallas to the airport there are two hard bounces that always knock me off, and that never happened before in the first three years I had the phone. (Well, back then it was with AT&T but now Cingular). One would think one could travel from Dallas to DFW without losing a signal.Was this review helpful to you?
This phone gets great reception with Cingular, except in understandable trouble spots like parking garages, elevators, etc. Even there, it still gets 2-3 bars. My LG flip's reception (also Cing) isn't quite as strong. One note: on both phones, there seems to be a very weak signal northeast of Love Field. If you could draw a line as the crow flies from Lemmon / Northwest Hwy. to Midway / Walnut Hill, it is not uncommon to get dropped calls and "No Signal" errors along that line. It is worst along Park from Lakemont to Midway. Not sure what's up on that stretch of terrain, although there is a power station nearby. Outside of that Twilight Zone, the phone is perfect nearly all the time.Was this review helpful to you?
Live in Canyon Creek area of Richardson and get very ppor reception from Sprint. I often have dropped calls, and am forced to move to my back patio for conversations.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon has been generally very good for me so long as I am outdoors or in the car. There is one small place on I30 where the phone will always drop the call but the area is very small (and doesn't move). Typically there is no reception in elevators of large buildings and most concrete parking garages lose signal as you down levels. In office buildings near Legacy and Tollway, there is rarely signal anywhere and any found cannot be relied on long enough to even place a call. But everywhere else... it's pretty good and Samsung phones seem to do well with Verizon here.Was this review helpful to you?

I live three blocks East and South of Josey and Hebrom and I get terrible reception in my house. I have to go outside for the phone to work reliably. This is s huge problem since I office in my home and my customers call my cell about half the time. I'm alweays getting in the car and making it two blocks from the house and then getting notice that I have messages, some of them two days old. I had the same problem with my T-Moble phone but switched to Cingular last December. I just looked up the tower locations and there is supposedly a tower about a half mile from here at Josey and Rosemead. You would think I'd get good reception.Was this review helpful to you?
Service became worse after Cingular merged with ATT, I am now on roam from my home and neighborhood. Went to Cingular and was told my phone was too old and I should switch from TDMA to GSM. I learned that Cingular replaced the TDMA tower with GSM tower on Preston. I will switch carriers.Was this review helpful to you?
