    Forgive me if this has been covered here before, maybe I'm not searching enough, but before I decide to get a Pre, I want to see some opinions on the forums as to the signal strength and call quality of the Pre and Sprint in NYC/Brooklyn area. I keep reading that VZW is basically number one in that dept, generally, and Sprint tends to be second, "generally."

    Is anyone from the area with a Pre or can you direct me to some other threads where I could make my mind up? I don't really wanna wait until 2010 when VZW will pick up the Pre.

    living in brooklyn and coming from t-mo, the signal is better in my apt now. i dont seem to have issues with phone reception in downtown brookly.

    in washington heights where i work, data seems to go in and out of roaming.

    maybe you can ask hers: for more thoughts.

    Go on Sprint's site. It has a map that shows you the quality of the connection at your specific location. I've found it be accurate in my area of NJ.

    I work in Staten Island not far from the Verrazano Bridge and my reception is always good and even when I am in Bay Ridge my signal gets at the least 4 bars.

    I live in Bushwick and can hold a conversation along my street facing windows and backyard facing windows. It drops calls everywhere else but i can still send and receive texts. Service outdoors is great.
