Bars jump from 1 to 5, depending on where you stand. Makes no sense. Agravating when trying to have a conversation.

Used to be fine, but Cingular reception has been getting worse and worse over the past few months; calls between wife and I frequently dropped, even with 4 or 5 bars. Reception spotty and inconsistent in La Mesa thru Mission Valley and into Downtown (I work on 4th floor, next to a window); often difficult to impossible to carry on a conversation. We both have current phones (hers a Motorola). Have made multiple calls to Cingular cust. serv. over the past few months for reception and voice mail issues, but they always tell me it must be a phone problem. After upgrading to the newest SIM card they then told me my phone had a known problem with that SIM card and they had to revert back to the older card (then why did they issue the new SIM card with my phone, if it was a known problem?). Am about ready to dump Cingular and their worsening reception and inept customer service (for failing to resolve the technical issues) for another carrier.

My husband has T-Mobile and only gets reception in two corners of the house and he can't move, or in a few places in the yard. My friends with Verizon do not get any service out here. My friends with Cingular do not get service either. I would like to change to Cricket because of the better rate plan, but not sure if this carrier has adequate coverage out here. Sprint has truly been great.

I receive a great reception from Sprint all over the Base except throughout Pulgas. Somedays I get one or two bars "outside only". I was suprised to find good service inside the Commisary, Hospital, and other buildings with lots of electronic devices. I even have the Novatel Broadband card for my laptop and sometimes it has more bars than my cellphone all over the Base!
