Horrible spotty reception. The tower turns off often, and there are dead periods of 15+ minutes.

AT&T's GSM network is worthless. In the west hills there is zero reception. It only starts to work somewhat when you get into downtown and off the west hills. Do not use this service! I switched to AT&T's TDMA and have been very pleased with the service. Also, TDMA phones have analog roaming, which means you can make 911 calls, etc. in the country.

AT&T Wireless (TDMA)

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Shattuck | Beaverton Hillsdale, Portland, OR 97221 |

AT&T's TDMA network is excellent in that it offers fairly good to good signal strength in the entire portland area, and exceptional converage (in comparison too all other carriers such as Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) in the west hills. Also has good coverage around the state. These phone roam on other carriers so you are likely to be able to make a call out in the country. Other networks such as Cingular, T-Mobile, and AT&T's GSM, and Verizons's "All-Digital" phones, do not roam on other networks. This means that if you need to make a 911 call and are in the country you may not be able to make it. These AT&T plans also offer the most minutes of any of the companies (650 min. for $39.99). I reccommend it in the metro area, but, in general, pay the 36 dollar activation fee to avoid a 2-year contract, It's just not worth it.

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Belmont & 20th | Belmont & 35th, Portland, OR 97214 |

I lose calls when I hit around 20th and Belmont and have absolutely nothing (can't make or receive calls or SMS-nothing) until I hit around 35th. Then I get poor service, not no service.

Man, AT&T have some terrible coverage here in Portland. I get dropped calls every day all the time. I know that an antenna is 10 blocks away and have no idea what their problem is. I get 1-2 bars then jumps to 4 then back to none within the same minute. Alien interferrence? I shall move to Verizon or t-Mobile very soon.

Extremely weak or no signals indoors. Frequent dropped calls. Can this forum help in making ATT aware of the problems with their GSM service in Portland (Oregon) Metro area.

I rarely get any bars in this vicinity at ground level. Sometimes I can have a call on the second story.
