This is the corner of the cemetary and every single time I take the phone out to make a call at that corner, it just goes no bar and drops calls if I am in conversation. The thing with Nextel is that, for the most part, the service is good, but as soon as you hit a dead spot, drops the call and gets five bars two seconds later. What the hell? It is still way better than AT&T and T-Mobile...Was this review helpful to you?
Luckily, the weather is almost always nice in Orange County, because I have to go outside to make and receive calls here. (It's a stark contrast to my other home in Santa Barbara, where the Sprint signal strength has been exceptional)Was this review helpful to you?
I've had T-Mobile for over a year and have been satisfied both with the coverage and the customer service. Much better than what I got from ATT. There is a dead spot in Signal Hill and you can't always get a signal if you're anchored off Catalina away from Avalon. Aside from good call quality, the T-Zone service is very good. I can even send and receive emails via my ISP's email accounts anywhere in their service area.Was this review helpful to you?
When driving over Signal Hill, the Verizon signal drops about 75% I the time going soutbound on Cherry. Once you get to the bottom of Signal Hill the reception is fantastic due to a Tower being right there in the abandoned LBUSD Campus before you get to PCH.Was this review helpful to you?
I have tried AT&T Digital, AT&T GSM and Cingular. All of them just suck with hardly one bar. After moving to Verizon and seeing atleast 4 bars makes me feel like I struck gold.Was this review helpful to you?

Cingular / ATT GSM sucks. Almost no good reception with lots of missed calls and drop outs.Was this review helpful to you?
Ever since I switch to Sprint PCS I get good reception. I was also getting good reception with AT&T until Cingular took over. I was receiving only one bar and my phone call will drop.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is poor or no reception in my house. Have to sometimes walk down the street and around the corner to get reception. Almost as bad with Nokia 6200. Former AT&T phones (GSM), now service is Cingular due to merger. Cingular's "cure" is for us to buy new phones.Was this review helpful to you?
Calls drop constantly in my house. Also have lots of call switching going on (ie I dial a number and get some totally unrelated person, while the person I am calling gets a call from someone they dont know at the same time!).Was this review helpful to you?
