Great reception in all of Sacramento. Worse in Lodi area. Cingular's customer service is evil. I bought the phone when I moved from Stockton to Sacramento. They sent the phone to the new address and the bill to the old address. They then deactivated my phone due to non-payment. I called and they reactivated and waived the $35.00 reactivation fee. The next month they sent the bill to the old address again. I had no way of knowing when the bill was due (internet was not set up in my new house yet). This time they would not waive the reactivation fee even though it was THEIR MISTAKE. I spoke with the manager, but still no luck. Cingular's customers pay for their mistakes! Also, my bill is around $10.00 higher per month then they quoted me and I use about 100 minutes less than my limit. Phone roams EVERYWHERE!Was this review helpful to you?
It's all about the phone. I have an old AT&T Nokia phone. But it usually gets better reception than most of my friends newer phones. And we're both on Cingular now.Was this review helpful to you?

4-5 bars all the time, oh and it is about the phones. I had 0-2 bars with my v400. And once I got my razr. So many bars. I go all around Sacramento with 4-5 bars.Was this review helpful to you?
Inside Arden Park or Arden Manor Neighborhoods (E and W side, respectively of Watt South of Arden Way) had poor reception..Verizon drops calls inside my home in. Possible new cell tower at Arden Manor's Rushden Park for Surewest... and Verizon co-hosting here may fix this soon... I drove Arden area in 2004 with Sprint and Verizon phone in my lap, and while Sprint had few dead spots, it was consistently low-scoring, while Verizon had generally higher bars but had some holes...Was this review helpful to you?

Sprint reception has been great in my apartment (Sungarden Apts), and in the general area East of Sacramento. I usually have at least 3 bars on my phone network-strength indicator (clear calls, no problems). I have never had a dropped call (unless my battery dies mid-call). I have great reception in my apartment (Sungarden) and in all the office buildings I've worked in, in Rancho Cordova on White Rock between Zinfandel and Sunrise. Occasionally, the speaker phone sound / reception is poor (echo or poor sound quality), but when this happens the voice quality and connection is fine when I switch from speaker to either using the phone as a handset, or plugging in the ear-bud. The speaker phone quality issue may be partly network and partly an issue with the cell phone, too? There's one spot in Folsom, at a friend's house, where I don't have good / consistent reception in their house, and have to go out to their driveway to make / receive calls. But that's the only "dead spot" I've found. I've heard from friends that Verizon also has good reception (confirmed by some of these reviews). Happy hunting / calling...Was this review helpful to you?
