I recently got a Treo 750 for the Cingular network. The device in and of itself is pretty hot. UMTS is awesome. I’ve gotten speeds as high as 2.1Mbits; but I think that may have been a fluke. The lowest speed I’ve gotten was 699kbits. So yes… UMTS is definitely yummy.
HOWEVER… let’s talk call quality. Yeah… not so much. Over the past 2 weeks, I’ve started and stopped single conversations as much as 6 times due to dropped calls. This is driving me NUTS! I use my cell phone to conduct freelancing business; and I’m finding it very difficult to do so when the 750 keeps dropping calls in areas where it appears to have 3-4 bar signal strength.
Its killing me. When the phone is good, its very, very good. When its bad… you get the point. I know I’m not the only person experiencing this. If you’re a 750 user, and you’re having trouble with dropped calls in strong signal areas, I’d appreciate you weighing in.
