1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Broadway / Pantano | Pantano, Tucson, AZ 85710 |

We've experienced lots of dropped calls with Cingular. We recently moved to the Broadway / Pantano area and do not get good reception in or around our house. This was also a problem when we lived on the west side of town at Speedway / Silverbell. We called Cingular to see what they could do to help, but received no help. Now, we either have to pay to get out of the service plan, get a landline or upgrade to phones that may or may not work. Strange thing is that my sister (who is often at our house) has T-Mobile and never has dropped calls or poor reception.

I have never had a problem with T-Mobile unless I go into a Bookmans or Wal Mart... then the bars go down to 1 or 2, sometimes no reception at all.

We get 0 to 1 in the house. You have to go outside to get enough bars to send a text. And, you gotta get in the car and drive out to Valencia to get enough bars to make a call. Most of my daughter's friends can come to our house and use their Alltell and Cricket phones. This is very inconvenient for us. We were told in February that Cingular would be installing up to 100 towers in Tucson area by year end. From reading the posts on here about Cingular, I am thinking they lied. As soon as contract is up, I am dropping them. Tin cans with string work better than Cingular. As for their advertising, instead fo touting best results for not dropping calls, it should be "you can't drop a call that you never received." Maybe I should go in to advertising!?

Can't use my phone inside my house. 20 feet from house service is only in the OK category. I fired Alltel in favor of Cingular and in two months I'll do what most of my friend have done - switch to Verizon. Cingular and GSM is great in major metropolitan areas but!!

Driving in this area is truly a hassle. Cingular works in every other state with no problem.

My cricket phone is usually reliable, there is only two places I have trouble, In walk ins at resturants (most of us don't have to deal with that) and my house, not any other place on my street, just my house.

Absolutely awful cell reception pretty much throughout the foothills and nearly non-useable at the house north of Sabino Canyon.

We get very poor reception inside our house and have to go out in the backyard to make calls. Long distance calls are the worst - they drop off after only a few minutes. It's a pity, since we are paying for national service but can't use it. Cingular customer service justs shrugs us off, saying there is very diverse coverage in our neighborhood.

Cingular (AKA ATT) has the worst reception in the UA area I have ever experienced. Calls are consistantly dropped on Campbell between Grant and I-10 on both mine and my wifes (Brand new phones). Cingular lost my buisness to Verizon when three calls to their "TECH" line resulted in substandard explinations for such poor reception. I honestly had better reception on my analog phone in the early 90's! Cingular really needs to get their act together.

This is my second phone with T-Mobile and it seems that the reception has gotten worse. I drop calls in my house all the time. I like to move around while I'm talking, but I cant do that because the other person says I cut in and out. Even outside, I have to walk away from my house or stay in one spot. I've told T-Mobile this twice and they suggested removing the battery while it was on... ..that didnt work. I thought it was the phone until I read all the previous comments.
