Only works marginally by the window. I want to change phone and service, but having read the reviews for Cingular and Verizon (poor service and / or poor tech support and customer service) I may stay put until things improve...Was this review helpful to you?
I get "no service" or no bars in or around my home with my new digital Motorola phone. I cannot send or receive calls. But my wife's ancient Kyocera candy bar phone will actually ring in our kitchen! Verizon tells me it's because her old phone sends out a more powerful signal than the new digital phones. Go figure. Verizon also tells me that they are *planning* to improve coverage with a new cell site in the area, but won't say when (I'll believe it when it happens).Was this review helpful to you?
Full bars but move to another room and I can loose 3. Signal has improved since beginning of the year.Was this review helpful to you?
Depends, there are spots with no bars and full signal within 10 feetWas this review helpful to you?
Poor reception in this area, however once past Skyline East signal improves to good. Coming into this area you may want to finish your call or take the chance of having your call droped.Was this review helpful to you?
Since moving to this section of San Francisco about a year ago, I have experienced nothing but very poor reception with Cingular, especially in my apt. Even if I am right next to a window, the reception is very poor. Often I must exit my apt building to get any reception. I will definitely switch carriers once my contract is up.Was this review helpful to you?
Always searching for signal, sometimes good mostly poor.Was this review helpful to you?
Inside our house we seldom get phone reception though strangely enough the phones will ring when someone calls us. Sometimes the phones will work if we sit by the front door or window. Sometimes they will work if you go out in the front yard or across the street. Seems to be affected by wind. We definitely need a new cell tower somewhere on the CSM campus for this whole area! In other areas we generally have no problem with coverage. Just a note: when I had Nextel, it did not work at all on 101 going north between Cloverdale and Crescent City. When travelling from there to Grants Pass, Oregon it would only work again on the outskirts of Grants Pass. It did not work either at the Marin / Sonoma county line. Hope someone develops a cheap satellite phone real quick!Was this review helpful to you?
Great reception. I think Nextel has the best quality as voice goes, maybe not the best reception in all locations, but I have tried many carriers and some are really bad such as T-Mobile. You get for what you pay for basically. Loved AT&T before merger with Cingular. It was the best!Was this review helpful to you?
Garbage. Signal bars dance within close radiuses. 40% calls dropWas this review helpful to you?
