0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Us 290 West | Congress To Hays County Line, Austin, TX 78704 |

I've been on the ATT / Cingular GSM network since 9 / 04. In the past month (7 / 06), the reception on US 290 between Congress and the Travis / Hays county line has been non-existent. Phone shows 3 to 5 bars; calls receive a "we don't recognize your number on our network, please dial 611 for service" message. At the local Cingular retail store I was offered the option to sign for a new 2-year agreement to be on the Cingular network. The ATT TDMA network is being taken out of service. I need a new phone, SIM card and contract to get service. I'll wait 2 months for my contract to expire, and try the TMobile network. I need GSM for service in UK.

The reception is horrible at my place. I have to walk down to the street to make a call. My new strategy is to call someone back, after getting a conneciton with bad reception. The bars on my phone are like a rollercoaster.

I have had Cingular in Austin for 1.5 years and loved it! In the last 5 days, my reception is horrible. 5 bars go to 0 bars for no apparent reason. I am not even moving! Home reception went from great to sketchy. What is going on with Cingular over the past week?

Absolutely horrendous. I can be talking to someone while laying down, not moving at all, and reception goes from fine to nothing. I drop every call I make from my apartment, IF i'm allowed to make the call to begin with (half of the time I can't even connect). I live five minutes from downtown, and this is totally unacceptable. While typing this I received a call that was dropped within the first twenty seconds. I answered the phone, someone speaks for a little, and then nothing! While I lived in Los Angeles Cingular was great, but ever since they merged with AT&T it's been a nightmare. I'm cancelling my service tomorrow and will find another, ANY other service.

Lately, things have gone from Average to Poor. What's up with Cingular / ATT? It's pathetic, and I cannot switch because I have a work phone. Coverage overseas in third world countries has been better than in Austin. Why?

It doesn't work at all in my office building downtown, which is real convenient. It doesn't work at all at home in Westlake which is real convenient. It works in 30 second intervals between work and home which is real convenient because pretty much every call is going to get dropped. Cingular = terrible service in Austin.

Constantly dropped calls. Had to always go outside apt for reception. T-Mobile and Cingular much better for this area.

This is the location of my new apartment and I can't seem to call anyone from there. If I try to make it work, I can sometimes have a couple of minute conversation, but it's full of static and interruptions of silence. Aaaaaagh!

Ever since the thunderstorms on May 4th the phone will not ring for incoming calls, or call out consistently. Sprint technichal service says that coverage wasn't affected but reset the tower preference. Other Sprint users that I've talked to in Austin have reported similar problems.

Coverage drops out all over town. Great if your on a freeway overpass... .otherwise I am more than dissapointed. It used to be fantastic with the old AT&T.
