I had had bad reception at my apartment with my old Motorola V180 since I moved to my current apartment in August '05. So, I got a Nokia because it was supposed to have the best reception of any T-Mobile compatible model at the time (October '05). I get good reception with my phone in much of Tucson--always a full signal anywhere on the U of A campus, even in my basement office. However, the reception in my apartment is spotty at best. I am lucky to get three to four bars (of a total of seven). I drop almost any call at about the half-hour point or earlier. I have had good customer service with T-Mobile since Feb 2003. I had great reception with the Motorola in my previous home in Lexington, KY and before that in Bowling Green, OH. But I'm at my breaking point with the crappy reception in my current apartment. I'm definitely moving to Verizon and snagging the Motorola E815 (supposed to be one of the best for reception) when my contract is up in October or when someone takes over my contract on celltradeusa. Areas where I get no service at all: Albertson's on Glenn and Campbell, anywhere in the Sonoran-Desert Museum.

Have had Sprint for over 3 years and get decent coverage around Tucson except at home where you might get one bar. Reported this to Sprint and was told that this area is a known black hole and there was no fix in site.

Drops 8 of 10 calls from home. Good service locations I frequent are rare.

Must go outside to make or receive calls that are then usually dropped. Awful.

I switched my phone from old ATT to Cingular GSM in April. At first I got a Motorola RAZR. Reception was terrible. The RAZR just does NOT work on Cingular. Switched to a Sony Ericsson Z520 and it works much better.

Cingular sucks. I'm a former AT&T customer. Two months after dropping $400 on my phone those jerk weeds told me I would have to buy a new one to be on the "Cingular" network. I told them to bite me. Half the time I have no service in my house. I may set up a fire pit in my backyard and start sending smoke signals which is light years better than no signal.

I used to have T-Mobile and around the whole civano area its been impossible to make a decent call and have it stay connected or go through even on a consistant basis. All that changed when I switched over to ALLTEL. Every call made and recieved has been clear, stayed connected, and I've had service all around the area with either full bars or close to it on my phone

Serivce is non-existant in the house and only usable in the front yard area. I will not be renewing and looking to find a way out early... Continuously dropping calls while driving. Not a mobile service. It's no wonder I have nearly 10,000 rollover minutes... .can't make any calls.

I wish I never went with Cingular. Worst service that I have had in Tucson in 6 years. Assured that their serivce would mach the old AT&T service... not event close.

First of all, how confusing is searching for "good" cell service and finding the "best" phone! Too much work for something that used to be so simple... but I don't know anyone who even has a home telephone anymore... so we are stuck searching... and then trapped into stupid long contracts whether we are happy or not. That being said, I have to say that Nextel has always had great service for us. I've only personally found two areas that drop service... out in Vail near Rancho del Lago and way out west off Ajo. Since I am rarely in those areas, I don't have a problem with dropped calls. We like the walkie feature as well... big time help when you are traveling in a camping convoy! Overall very pleased with Nextel... just wish were more competitive in their rates. We pay higher rates than any of our friends... my husband says you get what you pay for... but it irks me to pay twice as much as what others pay for service.
