4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Taylor Ranch Area, Albuquerque, NM 87120 |

Very pleased with reception except on Golf Course Rd.south of Paseo del Norte. Sometimes drop signal on Coors near Paseo as well. No big deal, since unlimited minutes with Cricket! TravelTime using FlexBucket is good feature for occasional out-of-town travel. Customer service and tech support are NOT good, and any changes to account can result in loss of previous pricing agreements (even if the agent assures you it won't cause you to lose previous discounts). Overall, very pleased with value and reception. Customer for nearly 2 years. Whole family uses Cricket instead of having a landline. We keep considering other plans (since no contract), but nothing comes close to matching Cricket's unlimited plans!

Like a previous poster has said: reception in Nob Hill on T-Mobile has been getting steadily worse. I can no longer use my cell phone in my home and am currently attempting to get out of my contract. Something has definitely changed, but T-Mobile doesn't seem to know it and keeps telling me, and my friends, that we are in a good coverage area. Bizarre.

I have been with AllTel in ABQ for 8.5 years and have been relatively happy. Coverage and service around the metro area has been excellent. Also, cell coverage and service in Las Vegas, NV, Wash., DC, NY, NY, Philadelphia, PA, Salt Lake City, UT, throughout California, Arizona and everywhere else I've been in the continental USA has been GREAT. My current 2-year contract with AllTel is close to expiring and I was looking at carrier / service incentives, considering switching to a another carrier who might have more aggressive incentives. However, after reviewing this Website and seeing the comments on other carriers, I'm now very seriously considering staying with AllTel because of their better cell coverage, inter-carrier roaming agreements and overall service quality.

Have lots of dropped calls anywhere West of the River. May have full singal and then poof gone. The claim it is due to the towers at Central and Paseo Los Valcons. I believe they have terrible coverage for ABQ area. The phones in Tucson and back in VA are working without a problem. Sprint Needs to upgrade their network here in ABQ.

There is a transformer at the intersection of Lead and Maple. All other wireless except T-Mobile work in that entire block.

I am constantly getting dropped calls in my neighborhood, and Cingular got us for a two year contract. When our contract is up in April, I'm switching to Verizon!

I personally get this type of reception all over the city of Abq, NM. I've only rec'd bad spots around Lead / Coal and Garrard SE which has been like this since U.S.West Cellular has had analog svc back in 1994 ! Oh yes, I still get dead spots in these same areas!

Reception in most of the Los Ranchos area is nonexistant due to the fact that the village covenants prohibit any towers. Since I live and work in that area, it makes life very difficult at times. Oddly enough, I have great reception at my house (the only reason I keep this service.) Down the street from my house, there is none. Many places in and around Albuquerque are very sketchy. Everyone in my family has Sprint so that makes it hard to change but when my contract is up, I will seriously be looking at something else.
