We used to get a strong signal on both our phones, indoors and outdoors until one day in the fall of 2003. (locked in a contract until July 2005) Then began the very poor reception, 1 bar at best (if we got a bar at all), and floating between digital and analog constantly, and 95% of incoming and outgoing calls are dropped at least once. We called Verizon several times about the issue, and got a run around. I finally got to a level 2 tech (who was great!) and she set up a service ticket for the local tower, to see if there was something wrong with it, but a week later I got a call from a salesperson stating that the service was never performed, and the ticket was closed without review. The salesperson stated that I should buy a new phone, because it's obvious that my phone was broken. I explained to the salesperson that both phones had the issue, outdoors and in, when we used to get great reception and no dropped calls, but all she did was continue to try and sell me a phone instead of investigating the issue. Now that our contracts have expired, I wll not be staying with Verizon. Not only because of the poor service, but for the poor reception in this area. We have tried 4 different phones, and they all had the same poor reception here.Was this review helpful to you?
well the Nokia 6255 is a very good phone but sometimes m reception isnt the greatest in my area. the company is metro PCS they are a good company its $40 a month for unlimited minutes but sometimes I cant take advantage of it cause were I live in elk grove there is very little reception but were I work the reception is great I would always choose metro PCS over any other company cause of the rates but sometimes I wish they would put more towers in elk grove.Was this review helpful to you?
Just got this phone last night, poor reception inside my house and outside. Lots of static. Wish I'd stayed with my old Nokia that I got through AT&T (perfect reception almost everywhere).Was this review helpful to you?
Coverage is very intermittant and I have never completed a call without some reception trouble.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is fair (1-2 bars out of four) inside my house but sometimes drops calls outside my house - on the side of my house facing the nearest Sprint tower. Go figure. Reception is better (3-4 bars) in my office in a steel frame building in downtown Sacramento, 1.5 miles north of my home, even though it is also further from the nearest Sprint tower. Again, go figure.Was this review helpful to you?

Metro is terrible, the bars keeping jumping from full, to no service. Sometimes calls cannot be recieved because of no service.Was this review helpful to you?
Over the years I have had service from most of the majaor carriers. Of those, Sprint (3-4 Bars) and Verizon (5 Bars) are the only ones that work within my house. The Verizon service is so good within my home that it is usually the phone of choice over the land carrier.Was this review helpful to you?
