The Rita Ranch area appears to be a huge hole in T-Mobile coverage. My Cingular v180 gets 2-3 bars at the Fry's, but T-Mobile is no service.Was this review helpful to you?
You can never go wrong with ALLTEL, unless you live out in Vail or Sahuarita. Other than that it works everywhere!Was this review helpful to you?
Low signal strength in Foothills area. Usually get 2-3 bars at home in Finisterra (unless blocked by a hill in which case there is no signal strength). 2-3 bars is enough to get good reception, but I only get this in certain locations at home.Was this review helpful to you?
Have to go on front porch to get good reception. Elsewhere, no problem. Will try a new phone soon.Was this review helpful to you?
Dropped calls at home residence; must go into backyard to ensure no dropped calls. All family members (4) experience dead zones along First Ave south of Orange Grove to River Rd, Campbell south of Skyline to River Rd, Skyline east of Orange Grove intersection to Swan. We formerly had Verizon, which was better in terms of reception (but billing issues). My suggestion: if you live in area or frequent the area, look too another provider. We most definitely will once our 2-year subscription ends.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint reception is great all around the Northwest side. Downtown is good. The number of bars gets a bit weaker towards the East Side of Tucson, but I never have dropped calls anywhere in the Tucson area.Was this review helpful to you?
Better than Verizon in home. Transmission was poor on old ATT Wireless network. New Cingular network seems to work good on this phone.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is good inside house (Rita Ranch), much better that SPRINT. I do drop calls when driving up Houghton near Irvington all the way to Golf Links.Was this review helpful to you?
Cingular is really great, even in Tucson. Sprint, on the other hand, really sucks both with their cell phone lack of service and their really crappy broadband internet service, if you can call it service. Most doesn't work. Of course cable is just as bad.Was this review helpful to you?
With a quality handset it is a better day for TMobile in Tucson. Using Motorola V3 RAZR the reception quality of TMobile service has increased 200 to 300%. Where there were many dropouts in much of the Tucson area and building penetration was weak at best much of that has diasappeared. TMobile has plans that accommodate even the most frugal mobile communications service users incuding Cricket. Finding that T-Mobile is in more places I use my phone than a few years ago I upgraded my service to include a Nationwide free roaming, nights and weekends plan with 1000 minutes for less than $50 a month. Including all available features (Internet access and Picture / Video mail) the costs are still less than $55 a month. Add that to the expanded service area and you can't go wrong for that much money!Was this review helpful to you?
