Coverage in this area is spotty at best while driving on San Felipe. Inside the building, I can hardly get any reception. The phone sometimes searches for a signal for 20-30 minutes and calls that are received are being cut off when I turn my head a little bit. T-Mobile has better coverage in this area, although it may be analog.Was this review helpful to you?
Never had anything but excellent reception for 5 years, several different phones.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception sucks inside apartment. I keep missing incoming calls, and calls drop when I make calls. This has happened to all my friends / family who have used their cell phones in my apt. Looks more like the location / geometry of the apt.Was this review helpful to you?
One more thing, the "reception bar icon" on the phone is a joke. Personally I think it is written in the software on the phone to stay full or very high on idle - for their "more bars in more places." I guess they don't mean more reception. More like false advertising. Right now my phone is showing full reception, but as soon as I call out it will drop to 1 bar and the call will be inaudible.Was this review helpful to you?
I can actually look out of my office window and see a tower less than 1000 ft away, but still can't use this phone in the area. I would say the reception would be in between "No Reception" and "Poor". I can call out and receive calls, but only about 5% quality. I have called cingular, but they don't really care. I think GSM has less coverage / quality than my old TDMA.Was this review helpful to you?
Have had to be forced to stay in my contract for 1 year and can not use my cell phone while at work! Sucks... .Was this review helpful to you?
Great reception pretty much every where in town and most places in Southeast, East, and Central Texas. Often better than friends Verizon Wireless phones.Was this review helpful to you?
I'm switching carriers because I never get a signal in this area where I live. I've also heard that it rates lowest in the Houston area.Was this review helpful to you?
