on southern reception is fine, but in the neighborhoods south of it (near walmart and superstition springs area) I get no reception. i've been with Cingular since I liked at&t, but am distgusted with them now. there are plenty of acceptable coverage areas down here for them, but my new house doesn't fall under one of them. can't wait til I can change carriers.Was this review helpful to you?
No matter what phone you use, or what carrier you are with, here's what you need to check if you are in a 'dead zone' while in your house... If you get 'free roaming' on your contract, go into your phones menu and set the phone on 'roam only'... this forces the phone off whatever network it runs on (or is specifically looking for), and makes it search for the nearest tower, regardless of what company the tower belongs to. If you get a stronger signal that way, keep your phone on that setting while in the area... Easy!Was this review helpful to you?
While I have good days and bad days, I generally cannot receive or make calls from the first floor of my house (built in 1994). Outside I'm OK, but inside is hit-or-miss (and usually "miss"). A Verizon rep told me it was due to some interference put out by the Intel plant on the NW corner of Rural and Chandler.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint finally switched me from a Sanyo VI2300 to a Nokia 3155i and it made a world of difference. If you are having problems with Sprint reception, put your foot down and demand they get you into a Nokia 3155i... it's a much better phone with improved reception and many more features. Where the VI2300 had no signal strength, the 3155i has at least two bars of signal. I am not dropping the calls like I used to. Sprint transferred me over to their 'phone insurance people' and they upgraded me for free after I told them I would be looking for another carrier if I didn't get some kind of resolution to the problem. I received the phone via UPS after just two days. Very happy with the 3155i.Was this review helpful to you?
Every single stinking game with the SUNS vs. LA me and my buddy both who have Verizon couldn't get a signal at either Native New Yorker on DOrsey and Broadway nor at McDuffys on 5th and Ash, near Mill. Yup its the network (crappy) allright. Not to mention that in Coconut Grove in Miami Florida, I couldn't get a signal at my Bro's pad. I stayed there for a little over a week and it is in the middle to south of Miami! Forget about your (crappy) network.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is so poor I don't get ringing, but the you have messages tone when I come into a strnger area. Calls are dropped, You can't hear the person you called nor they you intermitted. I will never deal with Sprint or Nextel ever again. I have had big problems with both regardless of the phone model. Verizen seems to be furnish the best reception in this area, I don't know about others, but historically AT&T has been poor in Gilbert from Elliot south between McQueen and Val Vista or the eastern city limits. My contract lasts until Nov, but attempts to stop service because of the inability to receive calls, carrys no weight with the provider. DO NOT BUY a Sprint phone if you live in these areas!Was this review helpful to you?
Never have had a dropped call. I have run into few dead areas (Papago Park Zoo) I am making regular trips to Tucson (Speedway and Tuscon) without a problem. Can not make calls to and from Houston. My cell is my primary phone line. I was going to change carriers, but might not now.Was this review helpful to you?
Stay away from Sprint if you live anywhere near Ray and Greenfield, down to Williams Field road, it's one big Dead Zone, and Sprint won't even change out my phone to help me.Was this review helpful to you?
I don't get any service in my house on Ocotillo and Cooper. I have to make my long distance calls when I am on the road. I also have a completely black area on Alma School from about Warner to Chandler Blvd. The last day of my contract is today, and I am ecstatic! Don't get Cingular... .worst service I have ever had!Was this review helpful to you?
