AT&T Wireless (TDMA)
I have never had good reception with this phone in this area. I use to have a Pansonic that had great reception in the house or in the area. I have been with AT&T since it was PrimeCo and have not had any reception problems until I went to the Motorola.Was this review helpful to you?
I had Sprint for 3 years and could never get a signal inside my home. In sprint's defense my 3-year old Samsung was probably to blame. Anyway I read online that the 850 GSM phones had better reception inside buildings. I try not to believe everything I read, but I couldn't find any information to the contrary and I was willing to try anything to be able to place a call on my cell phone from inside my house (I know that's a novel idea). With the new phone and service, I now get 5-6 out of 7 bars inside my house. I went to a Lowe's where I was ALWAYS on analog roam as soon as I stepped through the door. With the new phone I had 4 out of 7 bars and placed a call to my house out of sheer excitement. It worked like a charm. I've only had the service for a day so I'll post again after the honeymoon is over...Was this review helpful to you?

Average reception in southwest Houston area, good outdoor, poor indoor reception. Most major buildings (even in my apartment) have no reception at all when you get into the building. Outdoor reception is fairly good, usually above average.Was this review helpful to you?

About half the calls still go straight to voicemail.Was this review helpful to you?
No signal to speak in my house, and consistent dropout spots on the highways. My crappy Samsung SCH-6100 phone is partly to blame. I've had Sprint for four years, three cities and two phones because of their good rate plans, but have always been unhappy with the call quality.Was this review helpful to you?
I was quite surprised that I would get such good reception on T-Mobile in the Memorial area of Houston, TX. Reception is notoriously bad here, but the reception is as good as cingular and verizon. Inside my house, no reception, but I never got cingular reception either. Verizon is the only carrier that works inside my house. In my office building on Memorial, reception is good. Overall, I'm very pleased!Was this review helpful to you?
