    Are you satisfied with the reception which your cellular company provides for your 650????

    I'm convinced the radio in the 650 is one of the strongest on the market right now....and I'm curious what you guys have to say about that!!

    Also, I'm no statistics buff so if anybody has any recommendations to make the poll easier to read/more accurate or whatever....just lemme know.

    -Peace out 650 users!!

    I actually think it's one of the weakest. I travel all over the US, to many populous places with large cities, yet I seldom get more than 2 bars of reception. In my home and around Seattle I am lucky to get one bar.

    I live in NYC... have taken my phone to Vegas and Puerto Rico and I have great signal regardless or where I've been. I'm on Sprint. One thing I noticed, that my old phone used to have a low signal on my floor, but now that I have the T650, I always have a strong signal...

    Same here. It's nice to use my weekend minutes calling family from INDOORS. I just make sure not to run the microwave!

    I have Sprint CDMA, and I get ok reception. In my house never more than two bars....what really bugs me is when I'm sitting in one spot, not moving, and the two bars drops to one...what's up with that??? I haven't moved! How can my reception go down????

    Sprint CDMA. In fact, I GAVE my 600 to a friend and they gave it back because it got such bad reception. 650 is no better. It really sucks in hotel rooms, now matter where I am.

    Verizon CDMA, reception much worse than my simple nokia before my 650. I never had dropped calls or cutouts before and now I do...also, I don't have very good call volume most of the time, I have to press the phone very hard into my ear.

    My Sprint 650 has very solid reception. It is my personal phone, but I constantly have to carry it with me becuause my work phone (Motorola on Cingular) is highly unreliable. Sad because my company pays $100/month for my work phone and I only use ~300 minutes a month (2000 minute plan).

    I use my Sprint 650 for the majority of my work/personal calls, since it sounds close to a landline. I also have to use Sprint most of the time because there is no Cingular service, or the bars plunge from full to zero ("Emergency Only") while Sprint remains solid at ~1 bar at worst.

    I also had very good reception with my previous Sprint phone...my old Toshiba 4050. In fact, I think it was better reception-wise than my 650.

    Cingular in SF Bay Area. T650 gets 1 to 2 bars better reception than old Nokia. I'm very happy.

    Went from a Verizon LG VX6000 to a Sprint Treo 650, been getting better reception than on Verizon, even though Verizon was great. All the little dead spots in the city seem to be coverd with Sprint. Got the $5/mo roaming on Verizon network because I was worried about coverage, but I think I'm going to take it off because I have yet to roam with this phone.

    I've got a VZW T650, & it's performing well as expected. i don't travel to Europe, so CDMA for me is what works!!!
    I'm not weird... I'm gifted!!!

    Same here. I had a Kyocera 6135 & 7135 before and hardly ever lost a call. Now I loose calls on a daily basis. I LOVE the 650, but the dropped calls are really a hassle.

    Netherlands - Vodafone GSM. Great. Hard to find a spot where there is NO reception, even in (railway)tunnels etc there is a signal.

    When I walk into a room and folks see that I have a Treo 650, they all oooooh, ahhhhh, marvel, and even genuflect.

    Thus, clearly my Treo gets a very good reception.

    Surprised only 6 Verizon responses so far. I guess because the Verizon 650 is fairly new. The interesting thing is that almost everyone says their service "rocks" or is "ok". Not many suckies.

    I had a Nokia 7210 that consistently dropped calls in two spots on my way home. The day I got the Treo 650 (Cingular Blue/ATTWS) I stopped having the problem. I usually get good reception everywhere I go.

    I've seen some people mention that if you have a Cingular Orange phone that network selection is disabled while in the US and that could have an effect since it won't let you use the old ATT towers. When doing a network select I see two Cingular network entries here in Austin, Texas. I think my phone just locks to the strongest one.
