Like other reviewers, I would sat that reception in the Long Beach, Signal Hill area is terrible. Service with ATT was o.k. but Cinguar is a waste of money. A million free rollover minutes won't do you any good in this area. My Nokia (I've had 2and a Motorola) is a paperweight. Good thing the Nokia is supplied by work. (No one can ever reach me!) My personal carrier is Verizon (LG VX600). It isn't perfect, but I pay for this one and I'll stick with them.Was this review helpful to you?

Calls drop inside or outside my building. Sometimes no reception at all or calls go to voicemail right away.Was this review helpful to you?
I live in Long Beach but travel hundreds of miles each week all over LA and Orange county for work. I am constantly on the phone in the car, and only rarely do I get dropped. When I first signed up with them 5 years ago I lived in Laguna Niguel, and the reception was poor because of all of the canyons, but 2 weeks later they put up new towers and it was perfect. As for customer service... well, that is another story, but most companies are a pain to deal with from what I hear. If reception is your main concern, switch to Sprint!Was this review helpful to you?
The LG 1300 phone from Cingular gets little reception ANYWHERE..it cuts off calls and says "emergency only" for about 30% of the time the phone is on.Was this review helpful to you?
Always have outstanding reception with Verizon at home and most places in LA. I almost never experience dropped calls or other reception or connectivity issues. This is also the case in the other Metro-areas I frequent (NY, SF, Detroit)Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T Wireless (GSM)
Used to have great reception with AT&T. Since Cingular took over, I have noticed a steady decline in reception. Calls drop very frequently now, and I never used to drop them berfore. I used to be able to make calls within my house; now I have no signal. Time to switch carriers. Cingular is pretty bad.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is very sketchy. Sometimes you're good, sometimes you're not.Was this review helpful to you?
Cingular is working very well here. I've tried them all, and Verizon is probably the best, but Cingular is a close 2nd. It seems that Long Beach is a bit spotty in coverage with Sprint and ATT, although not unusable - sometimes one house over or across the street makes the difference.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?
