The signal indicator keeps jumping from no bars to five bars. Once I am on the phone the sound quality is quite poor. I often cannot make a call because I get a �network busy� message. My phone can switch between analog, TDMA, and GSM, but the signal strength is always low. Phone always says �Cingular Extend� which means I am roaming. Thankfully my plan has no roaming charges.

Very frustrating. I went with GSM because it's the latest, greatest thing here in the U.S., but almost never dropped a call with analog. Like one of the other comments on here said, the service is next to impossible to complete a call over 10 minutes. signal strength will be 5 then drop to one and never seems to stay steady. After call gets dropped, strength go right back to 5 bars again. I thought it was T-Mobile, but after reading these comments I realize that it is GSM technology.

This is true before the Cingular merger and since then also. Any time I get a call and I'm in the Ivywild neighborhood, I let it go to voicemail now. I can not hear them, they can't hear me... Why pay for the minutes? It's a waste or time and effort!

I am so glad I never switched to GSM, my TDMA phone works everywhere I go. It may not be cutting edge but I don't have to worry about not having service. It's great if you travel in the Mountains. It will be a sad day when TDMA is phased out.

I am so unhappy. I went from reliable AT&T TDMA to Cingular GSM after the change over. I can get 5 bars in most of town but I can only talk for about ten minutes at any point before the phone drops the call. I have never had a call that was over 15 minutes that didn't drop. The bars dwindle to 1 and then the call drops. As soon as the call drops the phone goes back to 5 bars. AAAAARRRRGGGGH! This is the second v551. I had the first replaced as a warranty problem after 25 days. This happens in Denver / Aspen / Colorado Springs on the highway / at my house etc. I really want to go back to TDMA, it worked and only dropped when there was no tower. Now I am stuck with a 2 year GSM plan. Never again.

Actually this is west of the intersection. Reception goes from 4 bars to 0-1 as you go west on Vickers 0.1 to 0.2 miles - you are entering a valley, but it is wide open to the west.

Reception here has been bad since 2000. They say that they are adding more 'cells' but no change has been noticed. Changed to GSM and nothing changed.

AT&T on the GSM network has poor to no coverage on most of the west side of Colorado Springs. Dropped calls happen regularly at 32nd St & W Colorado Ave. heading west all the way into Manitou Springs at Manitou Ave and Crystal Park Rd. The AT&T GSM network also drops calls on Uintah & 24th St up to Uintah & 30th St. The reception has gotten worse since they have announced that "AT&T customers have twice the coverage."

Sprint has pretty decent coverage in North Central Colorado Springs. I use my cell as a home phone and once-in-awhile get a call dropped when inside my apartment. I'd rate coverage inside at 3.5 and outside at 4.0 out of 5.0. Remember that coverage also depends on the phone being used.
