"Looking for Service" is the usual. Finding random areas for reception, can pick up incoming calls only infrequently, losing them often when flipping open the phone. When connection made, break-ups in communication is the rule. Service provided by Sprint PCS. They need a repeater to enhance signal in this area. Plan to switch carriers when contract is up,Was this review helpful to you?
Awesome reception on campus, and in Palo Alto. Have not had a problem with reception anywhere in the Bay that I've been to -- Cupertino, SF, Mountain View, Redwood City, Oakland. Great reception. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful to you?
Cingular service is generally good within one block of Hwy. 1 through Moss Beach and Montara, but rapidly drops off and is lost entirely just east of Etheldore in Moss Beach or Farallone in Montara. This means, for example, that there is no service at the Farallone View Elementary School or Seton Medical Center Coastside. Calls always drop between Montara and Pacifica while crossing the Devil's Slide area.Was this review helpful to you?
Very poor reception in apartment. Signal goes in and out on a regular basis. When I do get a signal, rarely have more than one bar.Was this review helpful to you?
Neighbors have to walk up to street to get reception. No reception in back yards or inside or on front porches. Need cell site at local school or park (Aragon HS, Borel MS, College of San Mateo, or city park next to Borel MS)Was this review helpful to you?

No reception indoors. Spotty, with 0 - 3 bars outdoors. Some areas it can get up to 5, but it's still really spotty. Once I get out to the 101 corridor, it's fine though...Was this review helpful to you?

I cannot use my phone to make or receive calls in this area. I am quite frustrated when visiting relatives here. My relatives have Verizon here, and it seems to work well.Was this review helpful to you?
Very unreliable and poor quality reception throughout my townhouse. I must stand near the window of my kitchen or upstairs bedroom to get somewhat reliable reception and even there the calls often become disconnected. I called Cingular and the representitrive said that my residence is "between stations". He could not say if the situation would ever be improved. I am looking for a provider with a better quality product.Was this review helpful to you?

I usually get about 4 or 5 bars of reception, but even at 3 bars of reception, I can still make phone calls, receive phone calls, and hear everything clearly. I've had no problems with this phone and this service together. My mother's Samsung sometimes has problems with reception, so maybe it depends on the phone as well.Was this review helpful to you?
