We have Att, Cingular, and Verizon in our household. ATT TMDA by far is the best, Verizon 2nd and then Cingular. My kid with Cingular has to step outside alot of the time to talk. Verizon seems to work pretty well in the house. I really dread it when my service goes completely to Cingular. I've been shopping around and found this site. It doesn't look like any one service is perfect.

I have had very good reception with Sprint wireless as my "home" phone service for the past 2 and 1 / 2 years. Occasionally I will get a dropped call or my phone will not ring when I get an incoming call, but that has been rare and has not really been a problem at all. I am concerned with problems due to Sprint merging with Nextel. For example, one month they messed up my bill and then corrected the problem the next month but they didn't offer any kind of a "we're sorry for our mistake" credit which they should have done. Also one weekend the Sprint wireless web was completely down. After dealing with inept customer service people who couldn't transfer me to their OWN technical support, and ignorant store people who didn't have any idea about what was going on, I finally talked to a technical support guy after dialing the tech support number MYSELF who said the Sprint wireless web network was down nationwide. Why didn't anyone else in their company know that? Anyway, Sprint is much better than AT&T TDMA was. I had AT&T for one year and never ever had a clear call. No wonder AT&T sold their wireless service to Cingular which dropped the "AT&T Wireless" name. They were really horrible.

Terrible reception inside River Place neighborhood. Looking for a carrier that has good reception in the hood.

Spring PCS reception is generally goodin Austin; however, like clockwork, always drops calls when traveling in either direction on 2222 in between MOPAC and Mt. Bonnell Road. People I talk with can even anticipate the timing. Ridiculous.

I live in the Ridge apartments, and I've got 2-3 bars on standby, but as soon as I answer a call, the reception drops to 1 bar or less, and I lose the call literally every time. It's ridiculous. Reception outside of the apartment complex, but still near Far West is decent. Reception on campus is not so bad, and actually, reception is acceptable in most places. However, there is a definite dead spot in the Rockdale-Temple area for me.

I get fine calls at home, work and around town. The number of bars is typically low, 1-3 however that seems to not effect the call quality. bad: at the super target on 183 I get into an extended area and calls will go strait to voicemail, with spotty call reception.

Constant dropped calls and I cannot even call out at times. T-Mobile has the absoloute worst customer service I have ever experienced. If you are planning on living in another city maybe they are not bad, but the infrastructure in Austin is not so good and therefore I would highly persuade you not to go with this organization. Also, if you ever have a problem with billing this organization is the worst experience I have ever had with attempting to rectify the problem. The combination of poor phone service and customer service make this company a complete thumbs down.

I get absolutely no reception in my apartment. My roommate has AT&T and gets ok reception, usually 2 or 3 bars, so I have to use hers when we're at home. This phone has great reception on campus and in Houston, though.
