Works well generally except in my house. Many complaints from others about the sound quality. Anybody have any experience with this phone or the 650 with Verizon?

I live in the Mt. Airy / Chestnut Hill area of Philadelphia. T-Mobile constantly drops coverage. Especially frustrating are the 'call failed' messages I get until I clear the dead zones. I am switching carriers due to the frustration...

Perfect reception on the 17th floor of my University of Pennsylvania highrise. No problems at all around any other parts of the campus, except for the basements of some buildings.

I bought a Nextel for all thier cool features such as walkie talkie and insta-messaging, but now regret ever getting involved with this compnay thier reception is non-exsistant and I drop at least 5 calls a day! Take my Advice and Aviod at all risks!

If I want to make calls in my house, I would have to stand up, sit straight, or I would get dropped. I put my phone in the living room and sometimes it won't ring when people call, then I would get a voice msg indicator from them because later. I can't even make calls outside in my back yard, the only place where calls don't get dropped on a regular basis is my front porch. Besides that, it works excellent everywhere else I have used it in Phila
