Worked OK for last 11 months since I got the phone. Sometime between Dec 1st and 15th, dropped to 2 bars on the phone until you hit SEND, where you get none and phone tells you the call failed. After hitting END, phone display changes from "Cingular" to "No Service" or "Emergency Only". When I called, they sent me a replacement phone, which behaved exactly the same way -- it clearly isn't the phone, but the service. Maybe Verizon is right: its the network.

Cingular used to have great reception in downtown Portland, but starting on December 13, a cell tower has been out. Now I can not make any calls or received any. Most of my friends use Cingular and have the same problem (text messages still works sometimes). The customer service agent told me she had no timeline of when it will be corrected and wasn't even aware of the problem until I called. This is the worst service I have ever encountered. They should have at least notified their clients of the problem when it occured and should correct it in a timely fashion.

I have little to no reception anywhere in SE Portland. I must pay $200 to get out of my contract. I hear positive things about Verizon but I think I'll stick with land lines for the time being.

Calls are dropped every several minutes even though a constant 3 to 4 bars show, happens whether we are inside or outside the house. Very frustrating it is keeping us from using cell as primary phone for home use, locking us into landline service.

Had AT&T with a NOKIA phone til Cingular took it over. Now I have Cingular with an LG C2000 phone and the reception is the worst I have ever heard. I can barely take any calls, and when I do, everyone is frustrated speaking with me - it's all garbled and cuts in and out. SUCKS. The AT&T / Nokia combo wasn't great by any means, but it was better than this. I need to drop everything and start over. How can reception be this bad right in the city?! Ridiculous.

0-1 Bar reception out this way. Lots of dropped calls and poor quality when calls can be made. I have been happy with Sprint all over the US but it is frustrating to use in this area.

Reception is very spotty in this area. Dropped calls are common occurrence.

Need a tower out here. Top of Hill. Nearest cell towers at a 2.5 mile distance, but towers are at much lower in elevation and blocked by terrain. New high-end subdivisions within 1 mile radius from deadspot, but still no attention from carriers.
