This is my first phone, and it works okay, but it's often hard to make out what people are saying unless I'm in a completely quiet room. I would say about 1:20 or 1:25 calls are dropped (I don't make that many calls, so it's not that bothersome.)

I lived at SE 52nd and Powell, and got great reception. Moved to NE and now it sucks.

Full bars on my new Nokia e71. I think there are 7 bars on this thing, and all 7 are lit up. Granted, I am right next to the Fire Station and they have a ton of towers all around them. I just got the "PDA Personal" "Pay as you Go" data plan with unlimited data, no phone minutes (its extra for that). Its $35.00 per month plus ~$5.00 in taxes. I can do Skype in place of a phone plan with them. I can also add text minutes, if I want, which I do not. I will be entering more cell reception reviews for the local area (Banks, OR tonight - trip to the midwest in the next month).

AT&T sucks as much here in the zip code of 97229 (NW Portland, Rock Creek, OR - Tanasbourne) over to zip code 97217 (Swan Island, Portland, OR). I get 1-2 bars, and then it will just go to "SOS" mode with no bars. It used to work better last year. Due to it getting worse rather than better I would say that AT&T is CHOOSING to have their reception be worse. I am getting rid of this phone, and AT&T as we speak. I am going back to Verizon, or a WiFi Skype phone.

As always, Verizon never fails me in reception on my Nokia camera phone. I drive all over the state, and all over the country for that matter. Verizon is "the bomb". I just have to hunt high and low for quality phones that I like (that don't suck), but once I found my *cute* little Nokia 6236i camera phone? I bought it outright and have been very happy.

Plenty of "bars" but constantly dropped from Internet or calls fail, email fails. It's like they choke it off periodically

I guess the plan is good if you like chasing bars all day, rarely works in a building and on sidewalks. but you can talk while stopping traffic in portland and only to battleground wa. I have no service now so whats the point,i dont return home for like 3 more days hope no one needs to talk to me!!

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.
