More than.25 mi off I-17 and you're dead with ATT. Numerous dead spots (including our new home) and even more dropped called. Forget 3G entirely if you're not on the interstate -- or at Starbucks.

Zero to 1 bar inside home. 4 bars outside. Wife has Alltel, son #1 has T-Mobile son #2 has AT&T so I could verify coverage easily. AT&T suck the big donkey. Switched to Alltel I have 5 and 6 bars now. Had to wait for 2 yr contract to end before I could dump this sorry ATT service.

AT&T

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Central | Fremont, Phoenix, AZ 85041 |

Intersection of Central and Fremont gets horrible reception. Typically, Poor to No Reception. Driving down Fremont into the neighborhood between 7th Ave and Central, signal jumps between No Reception and Below Average (most times you can see 1 or 2 bars, however outbound calls fail and text messages can't be set and "No Service" appears during the call / SMS attempt ). Typically the "Below Adverage" rating is only while the phone is idle, so it is possible to receive SMS or calls, however answering the call or keeping the call established is nearly impossible.

About 2-4 blocks south of the tower location (towards Baseline) the signal goes from Perfect to Below Average. By the time you hit Fremont (Poncho's Mexican Restaurant is at that corner) signal falls to Poor, if you're lucky.

I rarely have less than 4 bars in my home, at work, or anywhere around Phoenix. Dropped calls happen, but happen rarely. Verizon's customer service is helpful. If you go over your monthly minutes, and dropped calls are a problem, they will issue credit once they review your call log.

Someone in this area has a jammer that is jamming AT&T signals. AT&T won't do anything about it.

Great reception. No dropped calls and crystal clear conversations. In comparison, my Verizon phone and service that is provided by my job is horrible. I miss work calls all the time and have to go outside to take a call.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Tatum | Hashknife, Phoenix, AZ 85054 |

a lot better than Verizon. I had Verizon and dropped 50% of my calls from home. They admitted that there is a problem which they would correct by adjusting the direction of the cell tower signals. But they couldn't give me a date when it would be completed. I live in the Desert Ridge area. There is no way around it - you must try different carriers until you find one that gives the best reception.

I used to have Verizon and I always had problems with reception and drop calls. Now that I switch to T-Mobile everything is great no problems what so ever. I'm glad I made the switch.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Daisy Mtn Rd. | Anthem Ridge, Phoenix, AZ 85086 |

Been dying to try the IPhone or the HTC Touch, however 2 friends with ATT cannot use their phones at my house, so no IPhone for me. Sprint has the new HTC TOuch, but I had Sprint before... what a HASSLE, such spotty reception, they finally let me out of my contract without a fee. Verizon better wake up on the touch-flo phones though. People want the newest technology with good reception. For now, I guess I will wait to buy.

i do not like Verizons call plans, so I come on here to figure out who may be good, and it seems like the opinions vary so much that I will have to stick with Verizon as I have NO trouble getting a signal anywhere in the valley. I have traveled through CA and WI as well as all over the valley and have never had a signal or dropped call issue. I work inside office complexes and almost always get calls. sometimes it will go directly to voicemail, but I really have no complaints about the Verizon coverage, just the plans suck.

Alltel

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Tatum Blvd. | Shea Blvd., Phoenix, AZ 85028 |

Constantly dropped calls, lots of dead spots in my home. Alltel claims I have 3 towers in the vicinity and doesn't understand why I have dropped calls. Hard to do business on a cell this way.

In our own house signal varies from 5 bars one minute to no service the next with the phone in the same place. Sometimes the only place to make calls is the kitchen, other times it drops call there. There is no rhyme or reason to it. It is horrible. Had T-Mobile for years before this and never had a problem

Frustrating, one maybe two bars on a good day. Lots of dropped calls. Nearest Verizon tower is at 7th St.and Greenway (next to the Verizon store of course), about a half mile from me, you'd think the reception would be better..
