4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Kinnear | Kenny, Columbus, OH 43212 |

I have had Cingular for a little over a year now and have always had good reception; I have never dropped a call. I used to live in Worthington (43235) and I had really good service there, even inside buildings. I've noticed that in some apartment buildings here on campus (including my own) I don't get good service, but I think that is just a hazard of cell phones in general - regardless of maunfacturer or carrier. I will say that I get service in places that a lot of my friends don't - like the basements of buildings and inside the mall - but I think a lot of that is thanks to my phone, not Cingular.

With the Motorola V220, reception is so bad that I cannot place or receive calls from anywhere inside my house or the nearby area. The phone will not ring in my house, so I am often not aware that I received a call or voicemail until I drive to work the next day (Downtown Columbus). Cingular responded by sending me two replacement handsets for the Motorola V220. When neither of the replacement phones offered any resolution, Cingular agreed to try a different model, the Motorola V180, which also failed to work in or near my home.

Reception is poor in the kitchen but great upstairs and around town. Works great in Chillicothe and Waverly as well.

Constantly roaming at our home, drops calls all through area. Same problem with different phone models (Samsung). We are situated between 2 major highways, I-71 and SR 315 and can't get good service.

I never have any reception problems with T-mobile in Columbus. Signals remain strong in buildings and never dropped a call. All of my friends use T-Mobile or is about to switch to T-Mobile. Personally I have them for 19 months so far and very satisfied. For sure, T-Mobile is the best service provider in Columbus, Ohio.

In my apartment in Columbus (Worthington) reception isn't great, upstairs I can get 1 or 2 bars though (3 if I'm lucky). There are a few areas near me with spotty reception, but not many. Dowtown reception never drops below 2 bars even inside most buildings. Between Newark and Columbus on 161 reception is great, and I have good reception around Granville. Just got back from Athens and reception was good there too, for the drive as well (37 to 33).
