2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Sierrita Mtn Rd.& Hilltop, Tucson, AZ 85736 |

I had a Motorola Startac and was having a lot of trouble with dropped calls, especially in the morning. My daughter visited with a Motorola V265 and had perfect reception, call clarity, etc., on Verizon, so I replaced my phone with a Motorola V265. I have MORE problems with reception, dropped calls, call clarity, etc. now than ever before. I don't believe it's the phone (my original phone was replaced and I still have the same problems with the replacement). The problem is Alltel's network. When this contract expires, I'm signing up with Verizon, unless Alltel gets the problem corrected!

My expereience with Cingular in Tucson hasn't been all that bad, pretty consistent fair to good coverage all over Tucson, with some noteable exceptions: weak reception (sometimes) on east Broadway, Old Spanish Trail near Cmno Loma Alto, River near Flowing wells park. But really, overall not bad, and my family, nationwide plan is comparatively inexpensive.

Moved here from Chicago where Sprint was great - Tucson has little to no reception all around the city. Constantly dropped calls or could get no signal to begin with.

The Rita Ranch area appears to be a huge hole in T-Mobile coverage. My Cingular v180 gets 2-3 bars at the Fry's, but T-Mobile is no service.

You can never go wrong with ALLTEL, unless you live out in Vail or Sahuarita. Other than that it works everywhere!

Low signal strength in Foothills area. Usually get 2-3 bars at home in Finisterra (unless blocked by a hill in which case there is no signal strength). 2-3 bars is enough to get good reception, but I only get this in certain locations at home.

Have to go on front porch to get good reception. Elsewhere, no problem. Will try a new phone soon.

Dropped calls at home residence; must go into backyard to ensure no dropped calls. All family members (4) experience dead zones along First Ave south of Orange Grove to River Rd, Campbell south of Skyline to River Rd, Skyline east of Orange Grove intersection to Swan. We formerly had Verizon, which was better in terms of reception (but billing issues). My suggestion: if you live in area or frequent the area, look too another provider. We most definitely will once our 2-year subscription ends.

Sprint reception is great all around the Northwest side. Downtown is good. The number of bars gets a bit weaker towards the East Side of Tucson, but I never have dropped calls anywhere in the Tucson area.

Better than Verizon in home. Transmission was poor on old ATT Wireless network. New Cingular network seems to work good on this phone.
