4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | All Around Town, Austin, TX 78704 |

I am really happy with my service, I use an Edge card in my laptop and can be on the network 100% of the time with my reception never dropping past 1 / 2 way, and I am all over town and go to and from San Marcos occasionally. There are a couple of places where calls will drop for just a moment, which is normal because of the geography of this area.

Ok AT&T / CINGULAR, I know you guys can figure this out, but going down the hill between elizabeth and live oak st. on s. congress either drops or loses alot of signal strength. This is right on the most major street in the middle of town, come on.

Calls always gets dropped when driving past the AMD building and the metal pedestrian overpass. But after my old phone quit, Sprint sent me a new one (same model) and it doesn't drop the call anymore, so I guess it might be a phone thing.

Cuts me off constantly. My first very bad experience with Sprint reception, after living in multiple cities. Didn't expect that in Austin, the techie city. Come on, Sprint!

Just like many of the other people posting to this site I sit in one place and watch the bars go from zero to 5. The reception comes and goes even when I go outside. I usually end up holding most of my conversations on the front porch (less than ideal). I had been with AT&T for a number of years and had relatively good reception. That all changed with the switch to Cingular. I'm unhappy with the phone, the (lack of) customer service and the reception. Within a month of buying this phone the earpiece quite working. A few weeks later, the connection for the battery charger became difficult to use. It's a piece of junk

Calls are dropped when driving through Hyde Park between 45th and 51st St.and on the upper deck of Hyde Park. Coverage appears again shortly after. But calls are ALWAYS dropped right there.

Reception sucks at my house, always cracking up or dropping calls. Have a hard time dealing with it. Had AT&T and they had great reception, but terrible customer service. We need something better than the cell phone!

On the whole pretty good. Occassionally the phone will tell me I'm roaming (when I'm not) and occassionally a call will go straight to voice mail.
