my qwest wireless servis works some what good in my apartment but it drops when I am on a conversation with friends or checking my minutes of use while inside the building. but, when I go outside, no problem. I talked to a qqwest wireless servis person about this and they said it's the tower, and not the phone. they also said that they are working on this problem and when it's done, my phone will update according to new touar Availability. I guess when you are on the lower level of your own apartment, that might be the problem also. But other than that, grate servis everywhare else I go in the city of portland, oregon

Looks like it's real hit and miss with any phone or service. I started with AT&T years ago and then Cingular when they switched me over and never had any reception or dropped call problems throughout the Portland metro area, including Tigard and Sherwood. That is until my last move, last February, into the Hollywood area. Admittedly, living in the basement of an old brick building will dampen the signal, but having to walk a block away to an open parking lot everytime to make or receive any calls is getting tiresome. But there's the contract and I don't want to pay for both a cell and land line. I also had started a new job in Oregon City (on the hill above The Home Depot and the dump) and received bad coverage there also. I wonder if there is a connection? Who knows...

Always good reception, no problems around town (incl. tigard, tualitin, I-5 / Barbur, clackamas, beaverton, etc..). Some issues on 'Bonny Slope' area west of downtown over the mountain / hill thing (thompson road). No other carriers work there, either, however. Text messages do, but no voice.

works well, but all cell phones suck really. wife has T-Mobile and both work in the house well. both are spotty as we move around the neighborhood, though.

I cancelled my hardline long distance account with ATT (since they sold my information to the NSA). I decided to go with T Mobile. Cannot hear anything--lots of dropped calls. Appears to be dead zones all over North Portland.

I can barely make a call at all in this dead zone around my house. T-Mobile works fine here, but Cingular does not.

Cingular is awsome all round. I hav't had many problems and even used to have them when they where ATT! They where good then, I had a simiens phone. Plain an simple though. Cingular RULES! CDMA (Limited use technology) GSM (Used Around World) So if the world uses it. Why keep somthing that is going to go away soon? bye bye CDMA!

I live in Seattle area and travel to Oregon a lot. I have been on my cell phone many times and never droped a call while driving down I-5. Before I upgraded my phone I droped many calls, most of the time it is your phone not your netwrok.

Everytime I get on the phone in or within a block of my house it will end up in a dropped call. Sometimes I can stand in a particular spot by my back door and can have a sustained conversation. Other than that my phone works everywhere else in Portland and the surrounding areas.
