Fewest dropped calls - yeah right. It is torture to try to have a decent phone conversation. Don't even think about picking up the phone if you are inside, near hills, or driving. Not to mention the multiple whole network blackouts I've experienced lately. I will never again own a Motorola phone or have a Cingular plan.

Cingular has gone down hill for me. I run a business through my phone and it is getting harder each day. I usually only get one to two bars in lakeway. I am switching to nextell soon.

The ONLY place I have no Nextel signal at all (not even DirectConnect, even though DC has worked elsewhere when it says NO SIGNAL) is way back in the Honeycomb - Sandy Creek Area. If you head west on Nameless (2243) from 183, once you start down the hill at the Honeycomb streets, you lose it till you get around the hill toward Cherry Harlem--err--HOLLOW :-), or if you turn and go up Round Mountain Rd past the Sandy Creek Meth labs, its spotty coverage till you hit fresh air again (way past the Vol Fire Station), almost to the Liberty Hill area. Other than that, I have yet to lose a call anywhere else in the Leander / Cedar Park / Round Rock / G-town / N Austin area. Even a trip to Elgin earlier this week (183S to 290E) it didnt drop (it beeps when it re-finds the lost network).

I rarely am able to complete a call without several dropped calls. After several attempts, Verizon has still not resolved the issue three weeks after the first report of the problem.

Cingular's "Allover Network" apparantly missed a few spots. More Bars? Are you kidding. I typically have 2 bars (sometimes 3) at my house in Canyon Creek. Reception on 2222 is aweful. Verizon was much better.

Solid signal most of the time as far north as Round Rock, but overall signal quality disappointing. Scratchy and sometimes fractured. Much inferior to clear connection of a land line.

I've been using the Razr GSM for a little over a week. Reception is consistently three to four bars at home, and is consistently four elsewhere around town, with occasional fives. No dropped calls yet.

1-2 bars of reception at best in this area. Calls drop frequently, and the reception is very crackly. Signal is stronger closer to MoPac, but the further west you go on 2222, the worse it gets - many spots on 2222 have 0 bars. Unfortunately, this is where I live, and if anyone calls my cell when I'm home, the call almost always drops. I get decent reception around the rest of town, but it would be nice if calls didn't drop when I'm at home. Part of why I have a cell phone is so I don't have to give out my home number! NW Austin seems to be a bit of a problem area for many cell phone carriers, here's hoping they'll put in some more towers and improve things.

Third Sprint phone in this area, and it finally gets reception. Two bars ar home, but hardly ever a problem. A motorola, LG, and a Nokia I used before this all didn't recieve or make calls within a mile of my place. Sprint customer service is no better than a big warm pile of crap!

1-2 bars most times. Click to send / receive and it drops to one every time. Miss many calls, drop many calls. Truly sucks. My contract is up in April and Cingular will never see me again. I was a very happy AT&T customer, but life has never been the same since the switch.
