T-Mobile seems to have the best coverage in the city of Albuquerque (meaning the fewest dead spots and / or fewest drops in signal quality).

Sprint really screwed me over. I got a plan I liked before moving here from the east coast. Before purchasing the plan, I told them I would be moving. They said that I would be able to change to a local number at no cost to me. When I arrived, they had changed their service plans. In order to get a local number, I would have to sign up for a new plan. That meant another one year minimum contract, a higher price, and a change to evening hours start. When your eveing hours start at 9 PM instead of 8 PM, it becomes too late to call the east coast and borderline too late for the midwest. Suddenly, my evening hours would be totally worthless to me. I was forced to choose between a number that was long distance to everyone here or the plan that I wanted. Sprint, you really suck.

Verizon is a great provider. I travel the whole state for work and pleasure. I can get reception in places that amaze me sometimes. Verizon may not be the most affordable plan but you get what you pay for!

Started new job near intersection. Calls are frequently dropped and often are treated as roaming even though I am close to I-25. No choice but to find new provider. Considering between Verizon (best coverage / solid reception) and T-Mobile (best phones / average coverage).

I get dropped calls ALL the time. Almost 1 / 2 or 1 / 3 of all my calls. Half the time there's no service: It is terrible! Don't sign up with Sprint. The other person rating Sprint good must be an employee because everyone knows Sprint sucks in Albuqueruqe.

I have been pleased with Nextel. Coverage and reliability are great. I have a free incoming call plan that saves me a bunch of money; Up to 800 mins incoming + around 200 out going each month, not including nights and weekends.

Some dropped calls, but overall works good all around town. Usually never see less than 3 bars.

I've been with Sprint for a year now, and the service seems to be very "hit or miss." I just got a new phone, and the service is horrible. I went to every room of the house, outside, to the garage. It only improved when I plugged the phone into the charger (making it an IMmobile phone). I've also had some problems with the billing. As for the reception, I think it's a combination of the location and the phone. However, I live about a half mile from a Sprint store, directly in the middle of Albuquerque. I'm going to try and get out of my contract, because my phone is virtually useless.
