Can't use my phone inside my house. 20 feet from house service is only in the OK category. I fired Alltel in favor of Cingular and in two months I'll do what most of my friend have done - switch to Verizon. Cingular and GSM is great in major metropolitan areas but!!

Driving in this area is truly a hassle. Cingular works in every other state with no problem.

My cricket phone is usually reliable, there is only two places I have trouble, In walk ins at resturants (most of us don't have to deal with that) and my house, not any other place on my street, just my house.

Absolutely awful cell reception pretty much throughout the foothills and nearly non-useable at the house north of Sabino Canyon.

We get very poor reception inside our house and have to go out in the backyard to make calls. Long distance calls are the worst - they drop off after only a few minutes. It's a pity, since we are paying for national service but can't use it. Cingular customer service justs shrugs us off, saying there is very diverse coverage in our neighborhood.

My calls get dropped in the same three places when driving to / from Tucson and home. My calls are always getting dropped inside my house or I have to move to a different spot so that people can hear me. It's very frustrating!

Cingular (AKA ATT) has the worst reception in the UA area I have ever experienced. Calls are consistantly dropped on Campbell between Grant and I-10 on both mine and my wifes (Brand new phones). Cingular lost my buisness to Verizon when three calls to their "TECH" line resulted in substandard explinations for such poor reception. I honestly had better reception on my analog phone in the early 90's! Cingular really needs to get their act together.

This is my second phone with T-Mobile and it seems that the reception has gotten worse. I drop calls in my house all the time. I like to move around while I'm talking, but I cant do that because the other person says I cut in and out. Even outside, I have to walk away from my house or stay in one spot. I've told T-Mobile this twice and they suggested removing the battery while it was on... ..that didnt work. I thought it was the phone until I read all the previous comments.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Craycroft / Kolb Sunrise | Sunrise N S E W, Tucson, AZ 85750 |

Don't know what good this does, I can only hope Cingular executives read this. If there was a better alternative, I might switch. Service north of Sunrise along Craycroft / Kolb... forgetaboutit! No service along Sunrise west of Craycroft until Swan. Dropped calls consistently along Orange Grove around Orange Grove Middle School and east of 1st Ave. Barely any coverage on 1st Ave from Orange Grove south to River Road. Broadway Blvd! HORRIBLE coverage! Cingular needs to get busy and put up repeaters and towers around town NOW! Maybe a class action suit would get Cingular's attention!?

Every service has dead spots as does Verizon, but it happens so infrequently that I am rarely affected. I use phone service as well as broadband service for my laptop. As a UA student, it is true that Verizon has a dead spot on campus. They are not perfect, but in my opinion, You can't beat Verizon in Tucson. Also, you should research phones before buying them. As a Verizon user, my buddy is sorry he didn't. I make calls where he can't all the time. It's a full package, one bad piece will prevent the call. Good phones aren't free or cheap, but expensive ones aren't full proof either. Do your due diligence!
