We moved into our apartment in March 2006. Our T Mobile reception was great for the first year and then it suddenly turned to crap in March 2007. Both of us had Motorola phones (I believe they were the V180) and began experiencing dropped calls on EVERY call. Incoming calls often went straight to voicemail. Numerous calls to TMobile resulted in them convincing us to upgrade our phones from the free Motorolas. So we did. Stupidly. After reading various reviews, we both bought the Nokia 6133, which meant our contracts were renewed for another 2 hellish years. New phones did nothing to improve our reception. More calls to TMobile resulted in a promise of 'network enhancement' in our area that would take up to 120 days. It's been more than 120 days and our reception is virtually nonexistent. We actually broke down and had Charter Comm install a land line last week so we can communicate with the outside world. I deeply regret leaving Cingular. I will most like pony up the $200 to get out of my TMobile contract and go back to them if my reception doesn't improve in the immediate future. Honestly, I didn't know what a dropped call was until I became a TMobile customer. I hate, loathe and despise TMobile. I would happily join a class action lawsuit if anyone cares to file one.Was this review helpful to you?
I get little to no coverage indoors at my home. When I go outside, it still takes several minutes to get a signal. I often have to reboot. This is in spite of having a RAZR V3 that's never been dropped or otherwise mishandled. I'd switch to Verizon but I'm stuck in a contract. Bummer.Was this review helpful to you?
T-Mobile works great here. Occasional weak signal during rush hours, but otherwise service has improved in the past year.Was this review helpful to you?
I have a business phone Cingular Treo which I only get about one bar and only can make calls sometime in the upstairs bedroom, My Verizon Razor have 5 bars and I can make calls from the basement. I have used all the cell phone carriers in the LA area and travel the highways daily. I can clearly state the Verizon has the best service of any cellular company in Los Angeles. Sprint has good coverage as well since Sprint and Verizon are on the same network and share cell site. The only thing with Sprint is their customer service is not very good and forget about getting them to do something as simple as change rate plans without mayor issues. Verizon voice, data and customer service is the best.Was this review helpful to you?

My Motorola v400 would not work at the south end of my small townhouse. It worked fair at the north end.Was this review helpful to you?
Receprion at home is terrible. Have to go to the back of the house to get signal. Dropped Sprint to get Verizon and neither one is any good. Guess I'll have to stick with the land line!Was this review helpful to you?

Poor reception in Huntington Harbour area except near Warner or PCH. I recently changed from excellant Verizon CDMA coverage to Cingular GSM because of desire to have an international cell phone. However, Cingular's coverage is so awful in my home area of Huntington Harbour that I will have to either go back to Verizon and forget international cell service or find another GSM carrier such as T-Mobile. At first evalluation, T-Mobile seems a little better. I am only 3 / 4 mile from Cingular tower, but they seem to have the antennas narrowly directed down PCH and Warner. They could easily solve the coverage problem; however, the engineering group is very unresponsive to customers.Was this review helpful to you?
