Which Russian mobile carriers do you all use? Do you have a preference? If so, why? Any horror stories or great customer service stories out there when it comes to mobile service?

Beeline, just because I bought it when I first came here.. Megaphone just to call home as it seems to be the cheapest... (that was until I found out the VIOP cards here with which it costs about 10$ for 5 hours)

I used MTS for some time - until they started stealing money (usually happens once your monthly bill gets over $30 or $40). I had to switch to Beeline when I joined a company that had a corporate plan and have been using them for over 5 years now.

I still think MTS has better reception, but for the past few years at least, Beeline has been just as good for all relevant purposes. Their service has always been good and roaming has always worked (traveled a lot).

I'm getting a new plan for work now and will be sticking with Bee.

I use MTS from 1999. It started just occasionally - my friend gave me the telephone with the MTS number as a present. And I`m still with the same number.
It was one very nice story on 1999. I was in Italy and used my telephone a lot and MTS didn`t switch off the connection till I reach Moscow. When I arrived I owe the company 250$! They was so nice people! Understood,that tall blond beautiful woman is alone in Italy! :goldy: :nut:
So,I`m still with them. Of caurse,sometimes they steal money,but the connection is good

Well, I use MTS. The connection is usually good. But I find them quite expensive.

We have MTS & Megafon. Suddenly, the phone stores in our area (Svyaznoi, for example) will only sell Megafon cards. They can not input your Megafon number & payment into their computer system. A real pain...

My company has been using Beeline for the last 6 months, but our experience is quite bad. We experience quite frequent signal losses even in the same location (office in Khimki) and roaming is very unreliable. We're planning to switch to MTS.

In yaro, Mts is a joke, poor reception, txts doint come, calls will not go though ETC, Beeline works well though.

I dont get a choice.. company provides MTS... Though if going Land Line stay away from the old monoplies and get one of the next Gen carriers who have decent new equipment such as GT or ComStar

Me too...Using MTS about 7 years...MTS is really good - connection, sometimes in a metro too.. Service - a lot of offices...But quite expensive!! Especially in Rouming !!
Anyway, I guess you need pay for a good service :groan: even if it is not so pleasant :goldy:
