Although the number of bars is usually low, call quality doesn't seem to be affected at all. Other owners of this phone have encountered the same problem so it may be an issue with the phone rather than the reception. I've heard that Samsung is issuing an update; hopefully that will fix it.

Never more than 2-3 bars, even outside. Calls sometime drop constantly, sometimes go for a long time. Lately afternoon callers report that they can't call me or even leave a message. Seems that local system may be over capacity.

I was having horrible network problems with AT&T. My phone would show all 5 bars, but my calls were dropped, my phone would switch from 3G to EDGE all the time, calls was garbley. Verizon is very strong here and I'm happy for the switch. I use the iPhone as a iPod touch. Can't wait for Verizon to get this baby!

At house north of McNichols, every call lasting more than 10-20 seconds gets dropped (0-1 bars), but 0.5 miles away at U of D Mercy, I have no problem at all.

I just switched my service from Sprint to AT&T on Thursday. I don't have my phone yet, but anything should be better than Sprint so I'll start by rating the service as good. I had numerous dropped calls daily, I could barely use it in my house and the basement is definitely a BIG NO NO! I'm frequently downtown on the riverfront / Ren Cen area and my Sprint service picks up Canada's towers, in which I get charged for international roaming if I choose to answer my phone. My godmother has AT&T and her service is great! She can pretty much use her phone anywhere and the sound quality is good even on the riverfront. I'm hoping that I'm not gonna be disappointed with their service. I really don't think it gets much worse than Sprint / Nextel. LITERALLY!

Reception is okay. I rarely drop a call. I work for the Detroit Medical Center at one of the hospitals. If you plan on working there you may want to get a Verizon phone because they are the only ones who get service. Luckily I can roam with my Sprint for free on Verizon, but I'm going to make the switch to Verizon when my contract is up.
