Ever since the Cingular AT&T acquisition my phone reception in Austin 183 corridor has become horrible. The performance of Cingular borders on the criminal and they better get their act together.

I cannot use my cell phone, no sending or receiving at home in Cedar Park. Get 4 to 5 bars but no calling area. I basically have a $50 a month useless object. Once I pass the Austin city limit sign on 183 North my phone is dead even with 4 bars. No usage at all. I have called Verizon more than a dozen times to no avail, all I get is double talk. Verizon response is that for some reason my phone is picking up the Cingular tower and that is why my phone analogs all day long. They cant seem to fix anything. I'm glad I signed only a 1 year contract when I moved to Austin.

Had perfect reception with AT&T but switching to Cingular it's awful. I lose signal driving down Mopac these days. I am willing to cancel my contract but I am scared I'llchoose the wrong provider and then I'll be stuck in the same position I am in now.

Cingular reception in my home is never more than 2 bars, outside it is 2-3. Every conversation has at least one disconnect if talk is longer than 30-45 seconds. At work, near Zilker (5th floor office), reception is always great. Lots of drop outs on Mopac between Zilker and 183. I travel in and out of state; reception has been at least as good as Austin's in most cities. I switched from Sprint two years ago thinking Cingular must be better... I am not so sure about that! Coverage area is better, but with constant drop outs and waivering signal strength it doesn't matter. Cingular customer service has been friendly, but incompetent... suggest avoiding bill consolidation with ATT / broadband. Also, I'll never own another Motorola phone.

Longtime ATT customer and with its predecessor. Extremely unhappy with reception since Cingular merger - no signal strength in my home and in several locations along my daily route. Looking to finally switch to TMobile or Verizon.

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.

Let's make this easy, I'll tell you where I DO get a call though uninterupted. At home, standing still. That's it. I don't think I cave had a complete call while moving. EVER. "Mobile" phone?

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.
