T-mobile has had excellent coverage in my experience. I have had good coverage in San DIego and Los Andeles as well as during travels in New York, Baltimore, and Miami.Was this review helpful to you?

Verizon has great reception all over San Diego. Only complaint is that they sell older style phones with less features than other providers.Was this review helpful to you?
No reception in my home for over a year. A few houses or a block away, I get 4 bars. Once I reach my property, zip, nada. Have called, have tried different models. AT&T customers get reception at my house, but T-Mobile is not in alliance with them. So I'm stuck with a family plan that between 2 households (ours & college kids) we can use only if I leave home.

Very good SPCS reception throughout North County San Diego, on I15, I5, entire length of Mira Mesa Blvd and Miramar Rd, entire length of Pomerado and La Jolla, and inside UCSD buildings and on campus (but not in Price Center). Fair reception in my house, works in some parts but not others.Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T Wireless (GSM)
ATT (GSM) signal is consistently 1-3 bars lower than CINGULAR's around town, and it's always bouncing around indoors (jumps from 2 to 3 to 1 to 3, and I'm standing still) which has lead to dropped calls and lost GPRS connections while indoors - Tested with a Nokia 3590 and a 3595. There isn't a diff between the phones (switching SIMs had same results network-wise). ATT's (GSM) network is just not up to par with CINGULAR's.Was this review helpful to you?
I couldn't get very good reception on the first floor of my apartment complex.Was this review helpful to you?
I could generally get reception if I was outside. I couldn't get any reception from my first floor apartment in Warren though. I had to go outside to make calls.Was this review helpful to you?
using an unlocked phone i recommend taking cingular or t-mobile over at&t if you are looking for a gsm service. unless you have a phone with great reception you will find spotty coverage in la jolla. cingular performed much better.Was this review helpful to you?
