I have to call from the street or from my window (right by my window). There is a canyon near by and that is probably why the reception is so bad. Even my friend who has Verizon says it is bad too, so the problem is not just Cingular.Was this review helpful to you?
It's silly really. I'm in my apartment (3rd floor, no major obstacles) and I get a decent signal. I walk down to my car and WALLAH - no signal. Strange? I don't talk and drive, so I can't comment on dropping calls. So far, I dropped one near Black Mountain Rd and Mira Mesa...Was this review helpful to you?

The entire neighborhood between Clairemont Mesa Blvd.and Tierrasanta Blvd.borders Mission Trails Regional Park. This is a 5,800 acre dead spot just east of Interstate 15. The nearest tower is 3.5 miles to the West and is seriously overtasked. There are also several ridges between here and there. Nobody can get good reception in our house. It doesn't matter what phone or what carrier. The sidewalk in front of the house has slightly better reception but 50-80% of all calls have problems. Imagine spending 15 minutes on hold with DMV only to loose the connection half way though explaining your problem. More than one innocent cell phone was "disciplined" against the wall before we realized how inadequate our coverage was.Was this review helpful to you?
Do not get good reception in home. T-Mobile was at least a two bar and the sound didn't cut in and out.Was this review helpful to you?
Really good service from Verizon in southpark. I never miss calls.Was this review helpful to you?
occasionally the signal will drop out completely but for the most part... the reception is pretty good out here in the "ghetto" :)Was this review helpful to you?
Cingular's SD-area reception levels have been horrible as of late. All four Cingular phones receive disconnects, as well as limited reception 70% of the time. What't going on?Was this review helpful to you?
Since the start of 2005, the reception has gotten worse and worse. As of July / August, whenever I'm at home the person on the other end is deafened by "fax" noises. The reception, when working, is consistently 1-2 poles only. Crap. Total crap. Dear God get a new tower in Clairemont.Was this review helpful to you?
I love the Blackberry features and T-Mobile, however, the reception I am getting with this newly purchased phone is "on-and-off". People tell me they can't hear me and the phone sounds like it's under water. Works a little better with the headset or the wireless bluetooth, but for the most part it's hard to hear and I have to hold the earpiece with my hand (stuffing it deep into my ear) just to hear people. If I run the air conditioner in the car people say I sound like I am in a wind tunnel, and they ask me to call from a land line. Great for business! I am not sure what to do... it cost me an arm and a leg to get into this phone!Was this review helpful to you?
