1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Hawthorne | 30th, Portland, OR 97214 |

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.

Hardly any indoor reception. We get 2 bars in one corner of the house. 1-2 bars outside. this sucks. we moved 12 blocks north and now we have to cancel or change carrier. But, judging by the comments here other carriers aren't much better in our hood. a good old land line may have to suffice.

cricket is an awesome plan, I get great reception everywhere, and every year when I go to Michigan, I just get some cheap roaming minutes, and the roaming coverage is great too.

Expect dropped calls if you even get through. Several places along Miller road also have this problem. Cingular service seems worse than Verizon in the Forest Heights area in general.

Reception all over Portland is spectacular with this phone. I agree alot has to do with the phone. If you want cricket go to craigslist and buy a higher quality crickeet phone for less dough. My Kyocera I bought from Cricket for too much money was complete garbage. I had intermitten issues with it. After about a week it fell off the bed and the screens shattered. I picked up my Nokia 6165i for 60 bucks from craigslist, and I have not had a single problem since. Only issues I've had are out in Beaverton ner milikan and Murray, at the Murry Business Center, there are a couple of spots where dropped calls are the norm. I think they have a cell jammer inside the building.
