My expereience with Cingular in Tucson hasn't been all that bad, pretty consistent fair to good coverage all over Tucson, with some noteable exceptions: weak reception (sometimes) on east Broadway, Old Spanish Trail near Cmno Loma Alto, River near Flowing wells park. But really, overall not bad, and my family, nationwide plan is comparatively inexpensive.Was this review helpful to you?
Moved here from Chicago where Sprint was great - Tucson has little to no reception all around the city. Constantly dropped calls or could get no signal to begin with.Was this review helpful to you?
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?
