T-Mobile BARELY (and by barely I mean it really doesn't) works in this areaWas this review helpful to you?
Very spotty coverage with poor audio quality. The phone doesn't drop very many calls, but the audio quality is horrible. I will be switching soon. In the process of seeing who people think provides the best coverage in the Austin area... is it Verizon?Was this review helpful to you?
Good reception, great phone. Had the phone and service for 4 months, no complaints.Was this review helpful to you?
i spend all my time either on the UT campus, in northwest austin where my apartment is, or some where between. out doors I never have a problem, although I used to with my Samsung e105. the only place I ever had problems with zero signal while others had a signal (sprint / verizon users) was the second floor of the UGL building on campus, and my dining room in my apartment. when I switched phones fromt he Samsung e105 to my ngage, the quality of signal and signal strength went way up, and I never lose service, drop a call, and can finish calls without screaming "call me back" hoping the other person got the message. the quality of the antenna seems to range greatly from phone to phone, and I must have been working at 2 extremes of the spectrum.Was this review helpful to you?

All this weekend, ATT network has apparently been completely down. No matter where I go, I have no coverage. Unbelievable.Was this review helpful to you?
Phone calls will be dropped almost anywhere in Austin, even on some of the major streets. One reason for dropped calls is because of poor signal strength in some areas. Even when signal strength shows to be strong, calls can be lost because of system overload. The reason I think this is because I can have a great signal strength and still lose a call. This seems to happen often during times when most people would be talking on the their phones, so this why I believe that their system can handle only so many callers talking at the same time. During hours of day when few people should be on their phone, service seems to be fine. So if you only talk late at night and / or early in the morning, and you avoid their poor signal strength areas, Sprint is perfect for you.Was this review helpful to you?
I have been with Sprint for 6 years now and I can't WAIT to leave them. Strange over charges appear on my bills, and RUDE customer service reps are incredibly UNhelpful. Currently I receive absolutely no service, several calls are dropped, and I never know whether or not I will have service. I can't wait to switch to another carrier. Don't go to Sprint unless you are SURE you get service in that area.Was this review helpful to you?
I switched from Sprint to Cingular because they claim to have the best reception, but man was that wrong. This thing is horrible. It drops consistently around my house, and driving on Bee Caves, even "inside 360", is a joke. Sprint may have dropped more calls, but at least when you were connected the reception was good. Now I guess I'll try Verizon.Was this review helpful to you?

Good luck talking while in this area The GMS works well but you will have to switch networks thats one thing I do like about GMS it allows you to look for avalble networks and switch. It's like having all the phone companys on one phone no matter where your at. Good luck!Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T Wireless (TDMA)
Have been with AT&T for 3 or 4 years and never had any problems. Use phone as primary phone at home as well. Since the merger between AT&T and Cingular, I drop calls constantly. I can watch my bars go up and down while sitting in one spot. It is very frustrating... I hate my service! I wish I could have the old AT&T back! Now I will have to look for a new provider because I cannot handle having to call someone back 3 times just for a 5 minute conversation.Was this review helpful to you?
