Can sometimes get up to 3 bars; they don't last long though. Generally crummy.

Barely get one bar. Most of the time it's no reception and slightly 1. Lots of dropped calls. I used to have a Samsung phone (non-Vision) and it was the same. My friend has a Nokia 3585i, slightly better reception (at least 1 bar) most of the time but similar to my phone, it drops to 0 bars as well. Hers also has lots of dropped calls as well. Coverage out there with Sprint is *very* spotty. Once out on the road, reception is much better, but in this area in particular reception is terrible. It could be from the mountains as this was pre Sprint-Nextel merger. My cousin has Nextel and his reception wasn't great either. Although some friends claim that Cingular is better. This review is based on a 2004 visit to CA. The San Francisco area has good reception, though (city area and around Fisherman's wharf). Sprint customer service wasn't that great either when I got back to NYC and explained my problem. Discovered of course, that you can call Sprint through your phone (*4 and say 'Credit for a dropped call'), but you're only allowed 8 credits per month when in that week alone I was visiting I had more than 8 dropped calls! Then they tried to sell me their 'Roaming Plan' (wtf-?!), when I was already in roam on my visit there. Of course, my contract is finally up with Sprint and I plan on switching.

Verizon has to have changed something in there service. I used to recieve great reception and now I can't complete a single call. I only get 0-1 bar and every call either fades in and out or drops. I had a service tag and the rep called back to say a tower was down but there is no change in my almost total lack of reception.

I get perfect reception but for some reason I get drop calls about 80% of times.

It works fairly well. After the Nextell / Sprint merge Nextel service has become poor in other areas I visit. Is this area next for cost cutting?

It was pretty good, but in the last month or so the signal has dropped. The phone will only work in certain places. Sometimes the network is busy.

Some calls are good. But others can be terrible. Not sure why such a swing from bad to good. Better by a window or outside. Building may have plaster, but should not have large amounts of cement.

Had ok reception since April 2005 when I started the service. Over the last 2 weeks, I've had no signal. Cingular keeps stonewalling me. I'm ready to bolt.

Since the buy out of AT&T, the service is terrible. I can not receive calls from inside my own house. My voice messages are usually delayed by 3 to 4 hours. Reception is bad in all parts of the valley. My AT&T contract is up in March 06, I will not go back to Cingular again.

Awful no reception in Sleepy Creek area. Frustrating needs a signal tower here or close by. There are no signal improvements least 6 years of this area. The technology so old or maybe just money issue?
