I recently bought AT&T's GSM network and I have had nothing but great service everywhere I have gone. Works in places my old Nextel phone wouldnt have even gotten a bar of service. And now becuase of their merge with Cingular, I have only not gotten service on BART, but besides that great service AT&T!

Cell phone reception sucks! I had Nextel and T-Mobile which both worked fine here, but Cingular is for the birds!

I bring my cellphone in class and when i go outside on campus i still get no reception. I just don't get it, there are no electrical wires to make difficulty but only clear skies. NO reception, talk about rollover might as well give us free minutes because i always have to call people back. Verizon is even better inside buildings. My dead zones are classrooms!

ATT reception at my home has been below average, but w/ this phone it's poor. Reception at other locations is avg-poor. Lots of dropped calls.

I've had three cell phones from AT&T both on the GSM and TDMA and AT&T has to have the worse service imaginable. No matter where I am reception is horrible.
