Really poor reception for an upchart phone. Neighbor's T-Mobile service beats this one all the time. if this wasn't a biz. supplied phone, I'd change carriers!

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Saticoy and White Oak | Roscoe and 405 Fwy, Van Nuys, CA 91405 |

DEAD SPOTS: Roscoe and 405 fwy (Budweiser plant) - phone will go to "no service" immediately without fail. It will not only drop you, but you might not be able to get a signal for another 3 miles no matter which direction you go. Really odd how that works. White Oak / Saticoy - Dead spot. No service in the Ralphs shopping center. Dont dare drive by while on the phone, you will be dropped. Its been a problem for years now, and nothing has been done. I avoid that route if I need to make a call. 5 fwy / Roxford (Sylmar) - drops you every time. Might be the juvenile hall satellites 405 fwy south (where you enter the SFV from the 5 junc) - phone drops you as you enter the valley from where the 405 starts. Then will get service back only to lose it when you reach the Budweiser plant.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Home / Outdoor | Roscoe and Wilbur, Reseda, CA 91335 |

Outdoors the reception is pretty good. Indoors: SERVICE SUCKS. I get 1 or 2 bars which might quickly disappear and end up choppy or drop my call. I switched from Nextel, who I thought had the worst service, but at least my Nextel let me call from inside my home. Dead Zone: Couldnt get any bars parked between the Wamu and Alberstons (tampa and saticoy) Walmart (stevensons ranch) Ive only had my phone for 3 weeks.

I started way back when they had the brick phones and LA Cellular and you were lucky to have any kind of reception. I've tried all the major players and this is my conclusion. Overall, Motorola has developed, in my opinion, the best technology and durability in regards to the phones themselves. Because of my work I bought the i580 when it first came out since my last phone fell from 20 feet up and pretty much disintigrated. Short of running this i580 over with my truck, I'm very happy with its ability to survive the beating I've given it. Best investment I ever made. I had Nextel for many years, tried to find someone to beat them but ended up coming back to them now for the last 3 years. Every provider will have their dead spots, poor reception or drop calls, it can't be avoided. Being that I work indoors, outdoors and sometimes remote locations I had to find a descent provider. I have to admit, I was nervous when Sprint bought out Nextel, but so far service is, in a worse case scenario the same if not a little better. I also get a 25% discount on my service as well as any accessories because I work in the entertainment industry. Check for discounts, they do make a difference. You can check their website and see if the company you work for qualifies for any type of discount. I live in a huge complex and Nextel / Sprint is the only provider I get clear reception from. I've had friends with other providers and their reception has always been weaker or doesn't work at all. I have no affiliation with Nextel / Sprint, I just think their doing a great job with adding new technology with their phones and towers. I would say before switching, find a friend who has one, get their opinion, see if you can use their phone at your place or areas you have trouble with your current provider and see what happens. Cell phone technology isn't perfect, but for me, Nextel / Sprint has come closest to what I expect for the money I'm being charged. Free unlimited incoming calls and free unlimited PTT, (something huge in my business) doesn't hurt either. =) I don't think you'll ever find a "5", but, I gave them a "5" rating because they've beat everyone else out on performance, so far. You pay a little more for them, but if I can stay connected 95% of the time I'm using my phone, its worth it. Just my 2 cents. I hope this helps others out.
