I moved to this neighborhood in November. My Sprint phone only works in my driveway and even then poorly. My phone only works now with the ear bud in. My two year contract with Sprint has six more months to go--Sprint is not about to let me out of it. I spent nearly an hour with Sprint "Customer Care" about the broken phone and the poor service. They flat out don't care and characterize one bar as strong service!Was this review helpful to you?
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?
I just switched from Cingular to Verizon because I never could get a decent signal. Now I have 4 bars to 5. Nextel did not get a decent signal either.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?
Cingular's reception is really terrible on this part of Folsom Blvd.(from Watt to Bradshaw). Calls are frequently dropped and the reception bars frequently drop from full reception to none. I'm lucky if I get 2 reception bars in this area.Was this review helpful to you?
After five years of poor reception and well-lnown coverage gaps in the Laguna subdivisions of Elk Grove, Sprint PCS cellular signals started improving in the summer of 2005 when the company opened a store (on Laguna Blvd.near 99). Our home is located between Laguna Blvd. and Elk Grove Blvd. (about half way between 99 and I-5), just north of Laguna Lakes subdivision. In addition to the SPrint PCS Store on Laguna, Their are a couple of Nextel dealers here in town. Back in 2000, we barely received 1 bar of signal strength inside our house south of Foulks Ranch School. In the fall of 2005, we finally have a full 5 bars! Aside a mediocre selection of business phones and features, Sprint's Sanyo models provide the best cellular reception, Samsung probably are the worst. Sprint's biggest problem now may be tower capacity (bandwidth). Often, my phone never rings and just rolls directly to voice mail, and I've been told by some that this is a sign that the towers are operating at capacity...Was this review helpful to you?
