Cingular sucks in this region. Every time you try a call - it fails the first time. If you are lucky enough, it connects the second time. Usually, you have be patient for a third try. After you get connected, you've got to shout into the phone like you are talking to some one on Jupiter or Pluto on old simplex, co-axial networks. Finally, all your hard work pays off, and you will understand how frustrating it is to ask your friend to repeat what he said, everytime. I'm not feeling the least pain to break this contract and jump to a new carrier. I'm with this carrier since 3 yrs, lived around Washington DC, recently moved to Sacramento CA. Carrier and coverage was never a problem in all these 3 yrs, but now - the biggest pain.Was this review helpful to you?
The other review from this zipcode is not consistent with the whole area. The area around Kieffer (Albertsons) is abismal, but the rest of the Rosemont area is fair.Was this review helpful to you?
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?
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?
