I guess its because I live near the mountains, but reception is ok. It was worst when I had AT&T though. But other then that everywhere else I go I get good recpetion.Was this review helpful to you?
Normally 0- 2 bars in this area. Cingular isn't strong enough.Was this review helpful to you?

Most times I'm lucky if I can get 2 bars. It's useless at 1 bar. TDMA is just slightly better at between 2 and 3 bars. As soon as my contract is done, I'll be looking elswhere for my carrier.Was this review helpful to you?

Terrible reception outdoors, and no reception indoors.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is poor, but sometimes goes away completely. If I try to call someone when it is really bad, my phone (which says it has full strength) tells me that I can only make a 911 call.Was this review helpful to you?
Metro PCS said it was guaranteed to work in Los Gatos (all over). In fact I live on Kennedy Rd. and at most I get one line of reception. But most of the time I have to walk 10 minutes or so to even be able to talk on my cell phone. I find this very disappointing, I like the plans that Metro PCS offer but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone in the Los Gatos, Morgan Hill, Gilroy, or even Merced County areas. All of which Metro PCS says is in their "Coverage Area" and in fact there is no reception in any of the areas except for the bare minimum in Los Gatos and only certain areas at that.Was this review helpful to you?
I just switched to Cingular. What a mistake! I have yet to use the phone because I get absolutely no reception anywhere in South bay. Not in my home / work, not outdoors anywhere. I've tried from Menlo Park to Cupertino and zilch! I was lured bu the $39 for 1000 minute deal that they're offering, but the deals not worth it if I can't use the phone!Was this review helpful to you?
