Reception is usually excellent all over, inside and out: 4 or 5 bars. Just once in awhile, oddly (like right now), reception drops out altogether. It's like the Dish TV going blank when there's a solar eclipse only I can't think of a single reason for cellphone reception to erratically bonk out in a stationary place that has normally good coverage.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint has been good to me for 3 years so far. I have one more year left on my contract. The downside is there cost of adding things to your plan. Its get pricey right now I am paying around $70 for 1000K min. free after 7PM, 300 Text, Insurace, International calling BUT NO INTERNET! which I hate cuz if you go on the internet it will cost a lot. $15 is the base price for internet and my sis which she has Helio now no more Sprint is only paying $65 with unlimited texting and internet downside is -500 mins. / international calling / free after 9PM. -oh yeah about coverage its koo so far but customer service is crappyWas this review helpful to you?
Reception is good in this area. Very few, if any, dropped calls. I had Cingular (Nokia 3360) in this area and the reception was a joke. On average I could only make calls 1 out of every 4 attempts or less. Cingular has great plans but the coverage is awful and and waste of money. I now have Sprint through work (Balckberry phone) and the coverage is only fair. Calls are dropped about 40% of the time. Verizon is a good carrier but they do seem to charge for just about anything they can possibly think of.Was this review helpful to you?
I get great service from Verizon everywhere except for where I live... In my house and in the surrounding area I never know if and / or when a call is going to drop. It sucks big time.Was this review helpful to you?
Spint sucks. What else can I say? It is sometimes maddening not getting reception when a business related call comes in VIA my cell and I have to drive a couple miles away from home just to get a voice message. A couple people have noted that I cant talk longer than 4-5 minues with them before my phone starts breaking up. This has been going on for a couple years. I thought by swithing phones that this may work to use a cell. NOPE. I get the urge more and more to throw my phone out the window of my jeep after another lost call.

The tower locations on this website are not accurate. I am a consultant for T-Mobile and worked on the installation of their site on 2nd St. and Nieto (on top of Steak O'Rama). This cell site is not listed on this website. I checked other locations in which I installed cell sites for Cingular and T-Mobile and they too are not listed.Was this review helpful to you?
The lure of the T-Mobile "carry forward" unused minutes plan was the cause for this purchase. T-Mobile has not been able to awaken this phone which receives no signal in or around my house and only starts becoming functional at the intersection of Studebaker and Stearns. It will be reassigned to its well deserved paper weight position regardless of the 1,350 unused minutes on its clock. No reflection on Nokia which makes good hardware.Was this review helpful to you?
I live at the intersection of Willow and Studebaker in Long Beach which is a fringe area next to the Eldorado Park that many neighbors have labeled cellular hell. After month long frustrations with my own T-Mobile, which will not work in or around the house, I tried my sons' AT&T and Sprint which while functional displayed sub-average reception and clarity. The Motorola E815 with Verizon service was acquired today and functions flawlessly with excellent send and receive capabilities. The phone itsel has far too many features but fortunately they do not intrude too much in the process of placing and receiving calls.Was this review helpful to you?
Nextel coverage of the north side of Signal Hill and also in the Lakewood area have been poor for years. I seem to get much better coverage when I travel. In building is particularly poor. Oddly enough, coverage in my home near by is generally good.Was this review helpful to you?
Tmoblie works great here, inside and outside of my house. I had Verizon and could never get a signal.Was this review helpful to you?
