Just moved here and discovered that reception in my new home is terrible! Have had problems at Dobson / Warner intersection, too. Awful coverage by AT&T in this area!Was this review helpful to you?
Throughout Chandler, Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, Glendale, Peoria, the whole valley has been great coverage, My phone works all the way to the salt river and while floating down it, it worked at the south rim of the Grand Canyon, no problem, it works from here to kingman, no problem, some small dead areas from kingman to vegas, but its not so bad, I have been all over the state, and service is allways there for me for calls, Enhanced services coverage areas are smaller but I am thrilled with my service and have been for 5 years!Was this review helpful to you?

Our phones don't work in our house and they drop calls all the time. The customer service sucks as well. I called them and told them the reception was bad and they looked into it with tech support. While I was on the phone with them the call dropped 3 times. They let me out of my contract without a penalty.Was this review helpful to you?
I get maybe two bars at home. Whenever my treo connects for data service (checking e-mail once an hour for example), I completely lose the call I'm on and my phone locks up for 30-40 seconds until the signal comes back.Was this review helpful to you?

Living just north of the mentioned intersection, reception is spotty inside the house at best. Outside improves it of course, but barely until I am outside my condo complex entirely. Of the three phones mentioned used here, the Motorola v551 has the worst reception with normally only one bar (of four) inside, which I wasn't surprised at since my experience with Motorola products has been supportive of typically bad reception (among other things). The Samsung Sync is the only brand new phone, and I had hopes because of that, that it would perform admirably where the Motorola had failed. Unfortunately, though it's signal strength has been superior, it typically produces no more than two bars (of five) inside. Finally, the Nokia 3200b, being the oldest phone (and the one which when I have it out everyone invariably says, "That phone is ancient, you need a new phone!") produces the most bars usually (four of seven), something which was not unexpected, as this phone has always been superior in reception (not to mention call quality overall and battery life) to ANY other phone I have used or had the opportunity to test out. Having said that however, when I'm inside calls are almost a crap shoot to make sometimes. I'll dial a number and depending on the phone used and its software, I'll either be immediately rejected or it will simply "hang" while "dialing". I either have to move in the house or just try the call again. On the phones which tell me, it seems there is a "fight" going on between carriers in my area- the signals of the AT&T / Cingular towers are constantly vying with the signals from the T-Mobile towers, with usually the T-Mobile towers appearing to be slightly "stronger". According to the tower map on this site, it would appear that this is due my location being on the fringe of both carriers' signals. So the issue being with my location in relation to the towers, as once I'm in town more, everything is great with perfect signals and reception. I won't rail at AT&T for that, just kindly ask they add more towers out my way... LOL For the record, I have been with AT&T since they were AT&T (LOL) and since before that. While they certainly aren't the perfect carrier, over all these years, it seems to me that they have been the most reliable and dedicated service available. I have lived all over the west coast and the mid-west with service being basically the same great levels. Yes, I've had my problems with them occasionally, but compared to what I hear all my friends always say about Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Alltel, I'm glad I have stayed with them. No service is perfect and I have not had an issue yet that AT&T wasn't willing to solve in some way, or a bad enough problem to make me switch. My only real complaint is that I more than likely won't be able to keep my original plan forever (which is so much better than current ones)- they are trying like hell to get me to switch to a new plan, slowly dismantling their own ability to service mine (deactivating / reprogramming features or activating ones I can't access).Was this review helpful to you?
