Actually get good reception on a Samsung flip phone that is 2 years old (3-4 bars). Lower floor of 2 story condo. Do get dropped called downtown 6th and Congress on Sprint. Bought a T-Mobile Blackberry Curve 8320 a week ago and only get 1-2 bars and already 2 dropped calls, one in the middle of a T-Mobile store survey... Might try Verizon...Was this review helpful to you?
Fluctuating 0 to 2 bars at my house, phone does not ring reliably, don't get messages until I call out. Brand new phone, have tried 3 in the last month. About 10 calls to customer support and 2 trips to the store. Support says there is no problem even though I am less than 1 / 3 mile from the nearest tower.Was this review helpful to you?

Not impressed with the reception. No dropped calls yet but often staticy.Was this review helpful to you?
Sitting inside my condo my phone reception will randomly switch from 5 bars to no service and back again. I have dropped calls every day. I had Cingular before and also had the same problems. When I first got the iPhone it seemed to be better, but I think it was a fluke. It is astounding that reception can be this unreliable so near the heart of the city.Was this review helpful to you?
Never a dropped call. Always clear. Great data speeds. No complaints or problems with Verizon in this area.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint claims there's coverage, but there is none. If I'm anywhere near my apartment, I can't get calls or, if by some miracle a call comes in, it typically doesn't last any more than 5 minutes, if that, before the signal gets dropped. If it weren't for the stupid 2yr contract, I'd cancel immediately.Was this review helpful to you?
Does AT and T even have towers in Austin? I would think not from the reception that I get. Most calls are dropped, and before I bought another phone (it appears the one that came with my plan was made to self-destruct about a month before my contract was up), the only reception that I could get was inside of my house.Was this review helpful to you?
