My calls drop CONSTANTLY. sometimes I dial a number and it refused to connect, i just get deadair meanwhile the person on the other end of the phone is screaming HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I never had these kinds of problems with T-mobile. Worst part... i still have 1.5 years of contract left with these idiots! I never would have switch, but tmobile does not operate in the state i moved to.
grrrrrrr! (sorry had to vent.)
hello everyone... how are you?

Until Chase lowers my ridiculously high APR they can kiss my patootie! Their card has been retired to the sockdrawer.
AT&T is doing fine by me/us. In the past we had Sprint, Verizon Wireless, Nextel, T-mobile, and now Cingular/AT&T and of all of them AT&T it the best.
Now the only downside is we don't get service in our home. I guess it is the brick and bottom of the hill location that is doing us in. But none of the other networks worked either.
I change cell phones frequently (1-2x per year). I have noticed a change in reception based on the quality of the phone. For example, DW had the Treo 650. The reception was good. No problems. However that phone turned up missing at the mall one day and I got her a freebie phone from LG. Reception was terrible. It would conk out frequently, as you described. Then I got her for Christmas the i-phone. Reception is great! It is better that any phone we ever had and sometimes works inside this house.
One of the tricks I learned when I had t-mobile several years ago is to power off the phone for a couple of minutes when you change locations. This causes it to search for new satilites that may give you better reception in your new area. Also it sends your phone back to the top of the priority list for the area. I still use this when having trouble with my ATT phone and it seems to help.
Doing OK here in Verizon land, although going broke paying that monthly bill!

Yeah Phoenix. Alltel was the ONLY carrier that worked around here for Katrina. My hubby and kids left the area and they couldn't get through to me (AT&T) to find out if I was okay or not. The landlines were down and everything. The hospital I work for got Alltel because of that reason, but I like AT&T. I just hope that it works the next time a hurricane comes. No one can predict Mother Nature - UNFORTUNATELY.
