Phone drops calls all the time in this area. T-Mobile and AT&T (pre-merger) worked better, but I can't port my number to either one of them.Was this review helpful to you?

AT&T Wireless (GSM)
Dropped calls, so many I can't count them, and forget trying to drive to work (through downtown Mesa) because there are so many dead spots. My advice-get a diffrent carrierWas this review helpful to you?

Just made the switch from CDMA (Verizon) to GSM (Cingular) Coverage at my house and at work (Ray and Rural in Chander) are as good or better with Cingular than it was with Verizon. Im very satisfied.Was this review helpful to you?
With T-Mobile it really depends onthe phone you are useing.. Fro example with a moterola or erickson phone you will find bad reception but with a Samsung phone you should expireiance the best coverage available. Better than all other carriers..Was this review helpful to you?
I get great reception most of the time 4 - 5 bars, BUT 95% of all calls (incoming and out going) get dropped within 2 minutes. I've had two different phones and have had the same exact result. In Seattle, WA I lived on the phone and never dropped a single call so it's not the phone, it's just the Phoenix area has bad coverage.Was this review helpful to you?
T-Mobile's coverage is horrible... whether you are... roaming the dirt roads of north western phx or the opulent neighborhoods of North Scottsdale / Paradise Valley, the coverage plainly sucks... may be at the T-Mobile booth where they hawk service plans in malls will you find decent reception... get Verizon / Cingular... i'd say... (I mean if you bars dip from a measly three bars to a one or zero when you pass under a cactus... thats just crappy infrastructure... to begin with.)Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint says phone is the problem but other friends that have Sprint have same problem. Phoenix just seems to be a bad market for cell providers.Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T Wireless (TDMA)
Very poor reception. Most of the time calls rarely get through to me and therefore I get many voice messages hours later. When calls do come through, I can't carry on a conversation for very long and 99% of the time the call is dropped and / or the conversation is very choppy. Considering that I live downstairs on a two-story house, I am surprised by the AT&T coverage as upstairs reception is a little better and I usually get up to two bars of reception (out of four). Very good phone, Nokia 3360; otherwise very good service in more developed areas than that of Queen Creek. Just moved out from Southern California where service there was near to perfect with my phone on the TDMA network with AT&T. I have yet to find a carrier that has near decent reception in Queen Creek (Ocotillo / Ironwood). Verizon, T-Mobile, and Qwest also get horrible reception out here possibly because there are no cell phone towers here.Was this review helpful to you?
