1 bar as I type this. Drops calls all the time, misses calls. VERY frustrating.

I just switched from Nokia 6102i phones (2G network) to Nokia 6650 phones (3G network). Inside the condo, the reception used to be Good to Perfect. Now, I have very poor reception. I get "Connection Errors" even with four or five bars, and calls to me often go to voicemail. One tower has had a severely degraded signal since I reported the problems two weeks ago. AT&T indicated that they were going to construct more towers, but who knows when. I can't force my phones to 2G, so may return them within 30 days and shop for another carrier.

At times, the phone will show full service when I set it down. As soon as I make a call it drops to nothing! Most of the time I can't connect, sometimes I can and I can't hear the other person but they can hear me. I have to walk up the road to get service! Been with Sprint for 5 years until I moved here, have tried 4 different phones, no luck. Am switching providers. I'm on SW Pomona to be exact, between Barbur and Capitol Highway.

My phone NEVER works in this area (I live here). If it says I have reception, and I attempt to make the call, it either doesn't go through or the call immediately gets dropped.

I used to get incredibly great reception, now my phone is in constant SOS mode or barely has a signal. ATT replaced my SIM card, then they replaced my phone today. Still there is no service.

Solid performance on voice. I don't use text or internet, but the signal indictor is 5 of 5. I don't like dealing with the company, but cellular service in Portland area is very good.

Terrible reception. We need a new tower to cover Banister Creek Park homes.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Raleigh Hills | Scholls Ferry, Portland, OR 97225 |

I've got to let folks know that my $49.99 phone from Cricket outperforms my wife's phone from AT&T hands down. I haven't dropped one call and that includes inside my house and in my office in downtown Portland. My wife continually complains about dropped calls in the west hills and on Scholls Ferry road. The only area I had some interference was on West Burnside going up the hill from downtown. Cricket seems to be a very good deal.

Very Poor indoor phone reception. Even Poor Evdo data reception for my Cricket wireless internet card. My girlfriend and her mom also have phones and they all only work outside, or near a window. Just a bad signal area.
