2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Broadway | Mulberry, San Antonio, TX 78209 |

Connection up and down Broadway is fine, but I live in an old brick house and reception indoors is pathetic. Almost guaranteed that a call over 5mins will drop. I also get the digital skips during any conversation, regardless of signal, so that I have to ask people to repeat themselves often. Cingular's customer service reps have been friendly but reception quality in my house and the skipping problem make me ready to try something else.

My cell phone does not work in my condo. My service with Cingular is horrible, almost everywhere. I travel some and have intermittent reception everywhere I go, from FL to AK.

Switched to Cingular after Voicestream became T-Mobile and they changed my plan on me (even though they claim they did not). Might be regretting the change now as Cingular service is horrible no matter where I am. First phone was a Motorola V220 and reception and clarity were incredibly bad. Read reviews and this phone was rated poor, so spent the money and got an LG 1400 after reading reviews that said it was a good phone. It hasn't helped any. Reception on Cingular is poor all the time, even though the phone shows a full 5 bars. It is hard to understand the person I am talking to because their voice sounds like it fades in and out with a weird digital interference sound. I can be right smack in town, with full bar reception and simply turn my head and lose connection. I constantly have to ask people to repeat what they are saying because they can't be understood well due to their voice dropping out or fading. I get dropped calls constantly and a lot of my calls are to my wife, also using an LG 1400 phone on Cingular. It is not uncommon for us to have to call each other back and forth 2-3 or more times just to have one conversation of several minutes. Another thing that is highly annoying is that Cingular phones interfere with any radio or speakers. If you have your computer sound on, or stereo on, the phone causes loud buzzing noises any time it sends or receives. I have come to recognize certain buzzing patterns and can actually answer my phone before it ever rings. We literally have to shut off all radios and stereos any time we use the phones in our home. Unfortunately, I am stuck with a 2 year contract with this crappy service and the only way out is to pay their fee. I'm sorry I went to Cingular and I would never recommend them to anyone.

I have been with T-Mobile for several years and proud. Use to have the V66 but it did not work in the St. Philips buildings or on the military bases. Have the V300 now and they work everywhere. Cingular will never have its act together. Even former ATT customers are getting poor agreements from Cingular. Sprint is to risky. An Alltel is all the way at Marble Falls, TX to serve San Antonio and Austin consumers. And Verizon is selling out your cell phone numbers to telemarkets. BECAREFUL OUT THERE.

Switched to T-Mobile because Sprint's Customer service reps are just plain rude. When I had Sprint, connections seemed to be good anyplace That I went in Texas, so long as I didn't head out west of Boerne on I-10. In that case service was gone. Now that I have T-Mobile I have a connection almost anywhere. It fades and drops constantly. The sound quality is always poor. It is a connection though. Customer service is really good. The connections are terrible.

Actually, I always get lots of reception bars, but also lots of dropped calls. My old Sprint PCS service almost never dropped calls from the same location (interior of my home).

I have been with T-Mobile for awhile bt after I moved here I realized that I do not get service at my home. I don't have a ground line phone because I always use my cellular, but now I am stuck in contract with no phone and a high bill.
