Hypergeometric function

I have a finite alternating series of hypergeometric (2F1) functions.
These functions have complex parameters.  When I sum the series I get
larger and larger values.  My question is this,  does anyone know how
precise Mathematica is when calculating a hypergeometric fn
numerically ie, how many sig figs are correct?

I have done various transformations on the hypergeometric fn and then
summed the series.  Each time I arrive at the same result.

Thanks for any replies,
Scott
