If you stand on your head, clap your hands, and spin around three times you might get a clear call. Just make sure you don't move, otherwise it's gone.

I hate reception in Troutdale ! I get down the hill off of 257th and it's okay... Up the hill no service!

I've had T-Mobile for over two years with relatively bad reception at my home office. I recently "upgraded" phones, and now I get "Call Failed" interruptions on most calls. There are no towers in my area. I agree with the "put a tower in my backyard" reviewer. Where can I get a personal, portable cell phone tower that I can bolt on my roof?

since AT&T merged with Cingular service has gone down hill - can drive to the end of the block for two ticks otherwise one in the house, down the driveway or in the back yard. Verizon just as poor. Have had different types of phones with same results. Put a tower in my back yard and give me service!

Been with AT&T forever and have now had it with them. After the 2 year agreement that I was sold was misrepresented even after reiterating with the agent what the bottom line was (yes my fault for not taking the time to read details). Basically told "tough- S***" by them afterwards. Reception at home is a crap shoot (works okay if I go in front of the house). Friends with other services come by and have no problems. Currently looking at Verizon and T-Mobile.

Verizon is great in Pdx but have you tried driving or Amtrak to Seattle? It goes roaming or dead from Longview to Centralia (about 2 hours). When I am onthe train, I see other people using T-Mobile and other services making calls without problems. Verizon should fix this since this is a major "commute" in the region.

Solid reception just about everywhere we have tried in the city, but Verizon is just too expensive so may have to switch when contract ends

Coverage is great in the rose city area. Been with ATT and now Cingular. Coverage for the most part has been great.

Since we were forced to migrate from At&T to Cingular our service has been horrible. It sounds like I've been getting the same run around from the Cingular reps as many other folks. They are in the process of sending me new phones but I'm almost sure that that will not remedy the problem. Lately our service has gotten so bad that I can only dial out about 10% of the time, and even then almost every single call is dropped. If these new phones don't fix the problem I'm going to demand to be released from my contract since they are not rendering the service that I am being charged for.

I can generally call out just fine, even with no bars. Incoming calls don't usually make it, though. Only the voicemail notifications.
