Signed up with AT&T five months ago and now is cingular. Terrible service! I get dropped calls all the time in most of Laguna and drops all the time from home. This is especially bad because I use the cell for my business. Going to try another carrier, maybe Verizon.

Crappy reception in new development. Signal improves dramatically 50 ft down the road. WTF?

Sprint has had the good coverage in Sacramento compared to other providers. I was with Cingular until early 2003, and tried AT&T GSM in early 2003 also. Neither had anywhere close to the reception coverage that Sprint had in 2003, with the coverage being comparable to Verizon in this market. With Cingular, I couldn't make or recieve a call in my apartment or at work (Stockton and Y Street), making the phone and service less than useful. I recommend Sprint to my friends in Sacramento and in San Francisco. Of note, the phone does make a significant difference in reception, please read the reviews before buying.

If you leave near AAA, near the I-5 area of Elk Grove Blvd, don't get Metro PCS. You'll have dropped calls galore, you'll get missed calls and voice mails late, and you'll have no reception. In general, this is a bad area for phone reception, but Metro has got to have the worst service around here.

poor reception in the antelope area. also some serious reception issues in the citrus heights area near oak. No coverage while getting something to eat at hometown buffet. Outside the sacramento area, my T-Mobile out-performed my friends Verizon wireless phone from reno, to carson city, to tahoe, all the ways back to sac

Had AT&T for 6 years with well above average reception most any where I traveled. Now I am with Cingular after the buy out and it totaly sucks! They told me it would be better than att. I can't use it at all from my home. When traveling it's no where near the old AT&T reception I had. I am now looking for a new carrier.

Roughly 75% of my calls are dropped. No reception in my house. Whenever on the freeway throughout the state incoming calls aways go to voicemail and never ring on the phone.

Verizon is the only provider who has perfect reception South of Elk Grove Blvd. and between Fire Poppy and Franklin. Surewest is good to, all other carriers are bad to horrible. Going to try Sprint again though soon.

couldn't make a compleat call with the other person on the phone yelling at you what did you say again and again. PASS ON METRO PCS if you drive east of fair oaks area. throw metro PCS phone out the window past HWY 50 and folsom. I broke down and said to myself. "I'll calll a tow truck" pull new cell phone out and no freeking service at all. phone died looking for service. seems like VERISON is the only depedable Cell-Phone Co. For the eastern part of Sacramento county like: Fair Oaks,Folsom,O-Vale area's.
