Normally I get fine reception in the Hidden Springs area. I get drops on Salamo heading to I205 when I'm right next to the hill and one spot on I205 heading south (once again the hill).Was this review helpful to you?
Reception alright with my wife's phone (same model) and poor with mine (already replaced phone). Signal too weak to use either phone at home. Other dead zones in LO. Overall reception seems to become worse. Poor coverage in LO acknowledged by Verizon Wireless.Was this review helpful to you?
I have lived in 2 different parts of Portland and I work in Beaverton. I love Sprint! I have only had maybe 5 dropped calls in 2 years. I have great reception pretty much where ever I go.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon is best in Portland, hands-down. Best coverage and CDMA is more tolerant of low signal than others. I've carried on conversations in areas with ZERO bars. I have 1-2 bars in my house and work but rarely have a problem. Occasionally miss an incoming call. Dropouts and dropped calls are rare. Samsung A610 has impressive reception.. much better than my Motorola V60. Otherwise it sucks (buggy, slow).Was this review helpful to you?
Please subscribe to the cell tower at SW Barbur and SW Capitol Hwy, this is a Sprint PCS tower. This device has great service pretty much everywhere in the Marion, Clackamas, and Multnomah county areas, except for this house.Was this review helpful to you?
Almost always drops calls at my home. Has done this for the last 8 years, without improvement. The nearest tower is only about a mile away, but on the other side of the hill we're on.Was this review helpful to you?
We too have been T-Mobile customers for many years. Also, starting in April we lost a major portion of service. We always had service in our home and from home to Hwy. 205. Now there are about 2 spots that we can get reception. It is not the phone, as my husband and I have two different phones, his more expensive than mine. We were also told that nothing has changed with service in our area. However, it is sure strange that we can not longer get the same service we had for at least 6 years. Something has changed in this area and T-Mobile is not about to tell us what that may be.Was this review helpful to you?
I agree. Since Cingular and ATT merged, reception went to hell. Can't even use my phone at my office. I have dual mode with GSM but can't even get VM messages unless I manually switch back to TDMA. Also lousy in 97232. Calls dropped and people trying to call me back don't even ring through. I get VM from people TRYING to call when the phone hasn't even rung.Was this review helpful to you?
