Couldn't ask for a better phone or service. I tried AT&T, T-Mobile; they absolutely stink in this area! No signal at all in my house. My phone is extremely clear with no background noise at all... Most impressive!

Our reception used to be fine with Verizon inndoors and out. Now it's terrible indoors and just ok outside. one bar never more than 2 for a minute or two.

Great reception everywhere I've been with Cingular all the way to Hilton Head, and west and east coast of Fl with small exception in mountains where I don't expect coverage. HOWEVER, I have HATED having Cingular for billing issues, fees, taxes, etc. They bill one month in advance on everything, and my razr phone died about six weeks after one yr warranty and have had no reasonably priced way to replace it All they ask is if I bought the insurance. (Which I didn't---think they're just trying to increase sales for insurance) And, I'm a nice, calm grandma who has never, in any way, abused the phone. Can't wait for two year contract to end in December so I can switch carriers. Loved T-Mobile I had previously, but did have more dropped calls. Would love to have the same good coverage, phone works everywhere, inside and out, everywhere, except the mountains, but with T-Mobile. Is that possible?

I am only one of 6 in my family who has Cingular - all others are Verizon. I am the only one who can use my cell phone in the house in Cols - all others go outside in backyard to talk. I also use my phone easily in DC, Phila, Balt, Chicago, Phx, Dallas, MIA, ATL, and SF- Verizon was better in NYC - Manhattan

I lose calls if I move from the living room to the kitchen. Husband had Sprint for a couple years, then he switched to tmobile. It was great before we moved - now we get dropped calls all the time. The T-Mobile website even shows you which areas have poor reception, etc. And the new phone deal is a load of crap! He wanted his free phone and they showed us 2 phones that were EXACTLY like his current phone - they didn't even show him a phone with a camera (he has one now, but their "upgrade" did not). In order for him to get the phone that he wanted, he would have to pay for it and sign a 2-year contract. The T-Mobile rep told him if he just wanted a new phone without a contract - to buy a phone from ebay! We're looking for a good company, with good reception that is not either T-Mobile or sprint.

I use Verizon and in my house I can only get 1 bar on a good day. In order to use my phone, I have to go outside (facing east) and I usually have to step away from my house by about 15 yards. I cannot wait to switch. My friend has Sprint and her phone works fine in my house. I just read another review saying Sprint does not work in Old Towne East, so I am a bit hesitant, but my friend always uses her phone when she is over. This is something I have seen so I feel pretty good about it. Verizon stinks (they all do). A customer service blunder of theirs (at their Henderson Rd.Store) cost me an additional 150 dollars when splitting up a family plan into 2 individual plans. I am assuming are cell companies are evil, but Verizon has been crappy to me and I am leaving them! woo hoo!
