In my office, there are people with 4 other cell plans which all get great coverage in the building. When my phone rings, I have to run outside to take the call. My 2 year contract is up in a month, and I can't wait to switch. Alltel has treated me very shabbily in addition-cutting off my son's phone (family plan) before we even got a bill. They had $1200 of bogus roaming and LD charges on it, didn't tell us, and cut his phone off when he was traveling without telling any of us they would do it. Straightening it out was a customer "service" nightmare. Oh ya, they aren't national either-we couldn't find stores in NY or DC when we had difficulty on trips there.

In my home I have to find certain places, and then don't even always get service. I miss calls because they don't even ring on the phone-I only detect them when the beep comes for a message. The same thing happens to my babysitter who has just gotten a new phone with Alltel.

T-Mobile is OK for the most part. Reception is good most of the time. Many dropped calls over the last five years. Phones are way out of date, even the new ones need faster processors.

My cell works great all over Abq although I have expirenced one dead spot. It's just as you pass Sandia Casino on Tramway headed up to the heights. Other than that one spot I'm great! I even use my treo as a modem from home and I connect with all bars up!

I live smack in the middle of Albuquerque, near the illustrious ABQ Uptown shopping center, just south of the old Winrock complex. I have had trouble with weak signals for years in this location I have lived here for 6 yrs and have always had trouble getting a strong signal to place or receive a call. I am also in a "fantastic" coverage area as well as on the second floor of my apartment complex with no other floors above me. You'd think I'd get primo reception however this is not the case. Apparently all cell phone companies suck no matter where you are!

Two of us had tri-mode phones while vacationing at Valle Escondido (half way between Taos and Angel Fire). Neither one of us could get coverage in this area, not even on roaming. We drove over to Angel Fire one evening, and still didn't get any coverage, both analog and digital were nonexistant.

Qwest service is mediocre at best. I roam all over Albuquerque. I hunt and fish and go off of the beaten path and never get service. Now this would not be a big deal and is expected but when I go with family and friends who have a different service they have coverage and I don't. I don't recommend Qwest if you are going to base your decision on reception.

Drop calls in side house and the only way to receive a call is to be by a window, very bad location for Cingular phones. If you go out side of house to the east singal is fine.

Very pleased with Verizon's coverage. No major problem in Abq. A few dropped calls here and there but overall very good service. I travel to rural areas in New Mexico and get service where even the coverage map shows no service.

I have had Sprint for several years and been locked into contracts because of new phone upgrades, but they have horrible service all over Albuquerque. I drop calls all the time at I-25 / Candelaria and I-40 / 12th, many places off of Irving west of Coors BLVD, I-40 / 98th, and the most frustrating of all, in my home, in the SW heights, reception is the worst. Sitting in my home and not even moving, the call drops. Steer away from Sprint in ABQ. Check the number of Sprint complaints in this forum.
