T-Mobile has pretty good reception in my area. Not many dropped calls, even in my house!

Formerly contracted with AT&T which Cingular bought out. I had better service with AT&T, then when Cigular came on board, my bars went from three to one. As of 10 / 02 / 05 something changed; my phone shows no service and I have to drive 3 miles to get a signal. The funny thing is that my wife's Cingular phone shows 3 bars of coverage and we're in the same house! We're both GSM. Cingular says because her phone is on the Orange Band which has Towers within 3 miles of our home. My office cell phone is on the Blue Band which is supported by a Tower over 10 miles away. I think Cingular is going to lose a customer.

When on my AT&T TDMA phone my reception was great. I then made the switch to Sprint PCS and my reception went right down the tubes. Things were so bad that I made the move back to AT&T. At that time I was "forced" to a GSM phone and plan and went with a Motorola V220 phone. The reception I received now is poor (1 bar same as Sprint) around the house. If I drive a half-mile in any direction it improves (2-3 bars) but it is never as good or clear as my TDMA phone was. So much for new technology and mergers. I am currently swapping out the V220 with a Motorola V551 and am getting a new SIM card too. Customer Service says it can't be the coverage, must be the phone. So much for unlimited nights and weekend calling from the house. Makes me feel so satified when I watch the "More bars everywhere" commercials on TV.

after a year with T-mobile, I'm opting out of the contract. could never get any reception in my own house. The customer service technician admits coverage is rated "fair" and there are no plans to put an additional tower in the area.

Constantly lost reception. Extremely unreliable. Sprint PCS did not work well in the home, had to go outside to make calls. Calls would go straight to voicemail. Often would try to call cell phone from landline and half the time cell phone wouldn't ring.

Four bars in my house, and good reception (2-3 bars) just about everywhere I've ever been in Sacramento. Switched off of Cingular two years ago because two different phone models couldn't make or receive calls inside my house, but had to go outside to get 1 or 2 bars if I was lucky. My mother still has cingular, and the AT&T merger hasn't done anything for us.
