I'm using Boost Mobile (Sprint subsidiary) Blackberry 8330. No dropped calls, great network reliability and such a major improvement from having been with AT&T for 6 years. Service Coverage I've noticed is excellent in the Scofield Ridge Subdivision. I've also traveled all over Pflugerville, Round Rock and NW Austin and haven't had one dropped call yet in now 9 months. People - check out Boost Mobile, its $60.00 a month for UNLIMITED EVERYTHING, plus $4.95 taxes ($64.95). Just a good value and good network here in the Austin / Central Texas area.

AT&T continues to provide terrible service throughout the NW area of Austin. 1 out of every 3 phone calls received and placed gets dropped, or I receive a message which states 'call congestion', 'dropped call' or a fast busy-signal when I try to dial out. AT&T for the past 12 months says they're fixing their network -bull. I'm going back to Sprint whereby I didnt have all these issues. AT&T needs to begin paying their Customers to get their service as AT&T stinks.

Until 2 weeks ago I had no problems with AT&T. Now I have had several calls dropped in the Cedar Park Regional parking lot at 1431 and 183A. At 183 and Cypress Ck east, the bars vary from 5 - 2 and there is static and a fairly regular electronic harsh noise / hiccup. This is really annoying. I think there must be a problem with the tower.

Really bad service from ATT. Plenty of dropped calls or calls that did not ring the phone. After I told their customer service rep that the only way I could use the phone was to stand in the middle of my back yard, she actually said "then you have service". Amazing. Funny part is that the phone, and previous iPhone, worked fine for 18 months. Then 6 months ago it all went down. New phone didn't help.

At home, my phone has no 3G reception 75% of the time; I've received txt messages 45 minutes after they were sent, and am often unable to send them at all. Other areas have better reception, but occasionally the AT&T network will completely disappear in areas that typically have good reception.

I have 5 bars and 3G service shown on my phone, but I can't call out or receive calls. Txt msg works if I stick phone near a window.

I was excited to get out of the South Austin / Manchaca dead zone for Sprint but it turns out I have better reception even there. Sprint's coverage map notes "best" reception where I live and it's not true at all. I'm tired of the cutting in and out and the dropped calls and I've only lived here 2 days. What's the deal, Sprint? Been with you for almost 7 years and have liked your deals and phones, but please do something about your coverage area. If you can't do that, do something about your coverage area maps so we are not duped into thinking it'll be the "best."

There is absolutely no consistent reception in this area. I called AT&T, waiting over an hour to get to the right person, and was told that AT&T had no plans to add any towers or improve the reception. Our cell phones are worthless here.
