No reception on the street or in my home. It may show a bar or two but when you answer it drops the call.

Great, but this phone after prolonged usage, buzzes and buzzes everywhere you go... it's like a GPRS leak or something THE BUZZING!

Rock solid all over town including indoors. I also have a Cingular phone for work and the reception is very poor by comparison. I wonder though, how much the model of phone(or condition of the phone) has to do with an individual's reception experience? Some people report bad coverage with Verizon in San Jose area, but my experience has been great.

Inside wood-frame house, reception is usually 1-2 bars but reception drops to zero frequently, often every 3-10 minutes, requiring reconnection; it has not improved with ATT merger. Outside, same problem altho bars are more constant; calls still drop frequently. Cingular will not take a trouble report unless I provide part of the lead family-member's SSN which I don't want to know and shouldn't.

Not bad in this area for Cingular, although if you are inside or near a building, reception tends to fluctuate some. Cingular is WAY better than T-Mobile in this area. My friend came over to my house and he got NO signal whatsoever on a Inno 90 phone. I had a average 2 bars out of 4 in my house on the Nokia 8390. This phone is only single-band 1900mhz. If I had a dual band phone, I could imagine i'd be getting more signal.
