3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Carmichael, Carmichael, CA 95608 |

Pretty good. Reception in the house drops to 1-2 bars but call quality is still great. Coverage seems to be great wherever I go nationwide, Go T-Mobile!

Good reception both inside and outside the house. Never had a problem. Dropped to 2 bars on a few cloudy days but the call quality was the same - excellent. T-Mobile has served me well whever I have gone in the nation.

Great reception everywhere except at home, maybe it will improve when the merger is complete.

Just got the phone yesterday. I can only use the phone if I stand out on the balcony while I'm at home. I work downtown and it seems to get ok reception there though.

Either in apartment or just outside, unreliable and / or unusable service most of time. Very weak signal (one bar). Cingular says maybe when AT&T merger completed, service may get better.

My phone is top rated. Unfortunately the service thru T-Mobile isn't anywhere near the quality of the phone. What good is the service if you lose calls all the time? My phone shows that I have 3 bars (when outside of the house) but as soon as I make a call I go down to 1 bar and then it drops the call. Forget about making calls from inside the house.

Maybe two bars shown but drops calls all the time. T-Mobile has no answer except that they are sorry that "there is no change in service offered for that area in the near future." T-Mobile seems to be the worst GSM carrier in this area... maybe California. Supposedly they can use Cingular and AT&T towers but I haven't seen any improvement.

Horrible reception! I can't walk and talk in my own house. I have to stand very still.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | N. Highlands | Elkhorn / Don Julio, Sacramento, CA 95842 |

Great coverage (3-4 bars) if I'm standing in my driveway or out in the street. Coverage gets worse as I get closer to my house and sometimes no coverage indoors. Cingular has cool plans but pisses me off when I can't use my phone in my own room. Considering switching to either T-Mobile or Verizon but doing more research first.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Waterman Rd. | Calvine Rd., Sacramento, CA 95829 |

Turn off your phone when you drive southbound on Waterman Rd. going into Elk Grove from Calvine Rd. You'll lose all reception. Wait until you are well in Elk Grove and then maybe, just maybe you'll have some kind of reception to get a call. Verizon says that it is not their fault because most of the Elk Grove area is over saturated with AT&T towers. I have friends with AT&T service. They don't do any better than I do. "Can you hear me now?" This whole area is a Bermuda Triangle. Nobody does very well here yet there is a cell tower off of Sheldon at Hwy 99.
