Almost nothing with Sprint when I first moved in. Changed to Verizon mainly to join the rest of the family, and reception is better, but still missed and dropped calls within and around the house. Been with Verizon for 1 year and no improvement or reduction in quality of signal. Just about good enough to live without a land line. Dead zone up the street means I can never maintain a conversation all the way home.

No reception from home. If I do get through I turn my head and service is gone. Lose reception all the time from cell to cell or cell to home when in the Walker Rd and 158th area and many locations in Beaverton. Not sure if it is the service is overloaded and generally poor or crummy phones. They worked fine the 1st 6 months but incredibly ridiculous service the last 6 months.

Reception has gotten worse at my house in the past two years. I cannot get more than 2 bars around my house unless I go out into my yard, and then maybe I'll get 3. Coverage seems to be best when I'm driving down I-5.

Terrible service; worse since the Cingular takeover. Frequently have to make several attempts to make outgoing calls before it will go through. Frequently my calls are disconnected in the middle of a conversation. A more recent phenomenon is that in the middle of a call the signal will drop out, then I will hear repeated clicks, and 5 to 10 seconds later the call will come back in. This sometimes happens multiple times in a call. I called AT&T to complain and the woman said, as if she could care less, "There's nothing we can do about it. Maybe you should get a new phone." But I replaced this phone three times in the past year (never buy NEC phones). I'm seriously considering spending $175 to get out of my contract. I'm increasingly frustrated by the day. I know several people who have Verizon and they love it and never have problems.

Calls get dropped ALL the time. This just started happening two months ago, which was 1 yr into a 2yr contract. Our phones are not the problem, nor is reception. They are simply oversubscribing their network. Often after a call is dropped I get "No Service" the first few times I try to redial the call. Same thing happens to my wife all the time. Here is the cell service business model: 1) Load up thousands of customers on 2 year contracts and then stop expanding your network. 2) Laugh all the way to the bank at customers who were stupid enough to trust you.

The only complaint I can make about the phone service with Sprint is that it isn't so hot in my "basement-like" apartment (1-2 bars), but it still works. Outside the apartment and in any normal apartment in the Portland area I have never had a problem. Thumbs up from me. Now if Sprint could just give me a nice phone for signing a new contract.
