The best reception cellphones are without exception the Verizon ones. The reason being that Verizon uses CDMA technology which works predominantly on the 850MHz frequency. Smaller MHz frequency gives a better signal and is able to penetrate buildings and remote areas much more effectively. T-Mobile use GSM technology which is largely utilized around the 900MHz frequency and is mostly good only in bigger cities like Boston and New york. One other reason why 850MHz frequency works better is because it has been deployed for a much longer amount of time so has a much wider coverage.
However, note that Verizon uses CDMA technology which is not supported throughout the European union. If you need international roaming you are better off with some of the GSM phones with the best reception signal.
