Default Does the type of cell phone effect quality of reception?

My cell phone gets full coverage in one part of my room but the signal cuts off or very unclear during conversations...
Does the cell phone model have anything to do with it or is it just my service coverage?

Hardware has TONS to do with it, in my humble experience.

I say the network has the biggest effect.

Of course it does. Nokias tend to have the strongest reception. Samsungs are either good or horrible. SE's can suck ass, or kick ass. Motorolas are ok. Go to www.howardforums.com to find out which phone to buy.

hardware quality makes a HUGE difference although if the network sucks you are SOL regardless of how good the hardware is.

Yes, in my experience for GSM or CDMA, Motorla is hands down, the best. IMO, everyone else builds toys that can play music or games, then throws a phone into the mix. Motorola builds the phone first...

it's funny how 3 years ago motorola was the one building toys, they have really done a great job of reclaiming their cell phone builder status


now if they just had a decent blue-tooth capable nextel phone that didn't cost $400+

AFFECT!

And yes, rf perfomance varies widely between different models.

A 1990's 3-Watt analog bag phone with an external antenna still has the best range (if you can find an analog tower...).

GSM is their main focus, which is why they get all the technology first

which is total BS since the iDEN project has been going on long before GSM....then again GSM is where you make the money since nextel's rate plans and poor phone choices leave them soley for use by contractors and companies.
