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.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
I've been very happy with T-Mobile coverage in and around the city of Austin, but there are a few blatent dead spots they need to fix. 2244 (Bee Caves) near Barton Creek has a spot where the calls always drop. I35 up to Waco has several dead spots and dropped call areas. Forget about using your phone in places like Jonesboro. There is no service.Was this review helpful to you?

Looking for a carrier that works in the area of Edgewater off Cuernavaca / Mecca. My Verizon works if I'm not at home, but I am at my home most of the time. Verizon has always been great for me, but I can't get or make calls if I'm home (live and work here). Had really hoped to dump all but the most basic land line but now I have to have all the phone co's. bells and whistles because cell doesn't work at home. Any providers work here in this gulch?Was this review helpful to you?
I seem to have no problems in and around Awstin or wherever else I go with my V220. But I'd never use one of htese as primary communication device. That's what SBC is for. (Same for VoIP, secondary use only). Generally, I do have areas where the Cingular service is encountering high BER, but then move five inches and it's better. The analog phones worked much better, but their battery life was awful. Trade offs. I also carry a Blackberry on T-Mobile. Audio quality is better, coverage is similar, but in places where one does not work, the other one might. For what they are, and what they cost, considering the facilities limits of practicality, they are all pretty ok. But I think that if you ask any one of their network engineers, they'll say that these systems were never intended to replace landlines, and not really engineered for hand held devices. I do know that their marketing people will spew a different set of facts (usual marketing lies)Was this review helpful to you?
My reception starts to drop as soon as I turn off of Mopac onto Barton Skyway. The parking lot area of my apartment will provide 1 or 2 bars, but I have to stand in certain areas. Walking down the sidewalk will cause a dropped call. Inside the apartment, I'm lucky if the phone will detect any service at all. Since moving to Austin, I've had to subscribe to Vonage to get decent phone service at home.Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T Wireless (GSM)
Used to live off South Lamar and Panther, then moved to Barton Skyway on the Mopac side, now coverage is alot better. 5 bars always. Capital of Texas highway going west can be spotty, but overall, good service. Some garble around Dittmar and Manchaca, but easier to point out the 2 or 3 problems, but no one reallly complains about calls withe meWas 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?
