1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Montecito Drive, Montecito Heights, Ca 90031, Los Angeles, CA 90031 |

I have tried endlessly to get AT&T to upgrade their service where I live in an area of Los Angeles called Montecito Heights which sits about 3 miles north of downtown Los Angeles. Since moving here about 3 years ago my service has gone from spotty to non existent. This last time I called them a tech called me back and said there is nothing wrong with their network. HA HA. I dare them to come to the 800 block of montecito Drive, Los Angeles.ca and see their crappy network. They should be forced to put a white spot on the coverage map where I live. But, nope they refuse to actually leave their air conditioned cubical to fix / Improve their network. They even tried to sell me what they call a " Micro Cell" to boost my service,,,,,,,excuse me but I already pay for service why would I want to pay more just to get the service I am already paying for. I was even thinking about hitting up Verizon, sprint, etc,, to do a commercial about their competitor ( AT&T ).

Sprint has good customer service but lousy phone and data. I really can't take it much longer with them! I've insisted on bill credits with them and gotten them because of the lousy service but that's getting tired to. I left Verizon for them because of the terrible customer service but I'm going back and just deal with it!

Voice drop due to automatic switch between 4G / LTE to 2G for some apparent reason. Slow speed when on data unless it's 3AM then it improves slightly.

I travel for work and if I'm in LA or Portland, SF, Houston, Phoenix... Data is horrible. Nothing but dropped calls and messages that won't go through or are never received. I hate that all companies suck. I used to have Sprint, but it was far worse. Ughhhhhhhh. These companies need to be sued

Absolutely no signal. Verizon even comp'ed a network extender but my AT&T U-verse Internet service does not support fast uplink speeds, so calls drop while on the network extender.

I hardly ever drop a call in Los Angeles but unless I'm connected to Wifi, I cannot get data throughout the entire city which is so aggravating. I love the price of T-Mobile no contract plans but it's not worth it and I'm going to switch.

4G LTE has always been horrible here and still has not improved, despite Verizon supposedly upgrading the speed. Speeds are around 1MB down / 3 MB up. Have to use wifi instead which is much faster.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Overland Ave. | Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90025 |

I have Virgin Mobile which uses the Sprint Network. When I am on a call I can hear the other person 100% but the other person can only hear an estimated 1 / 3 of what I am saying. This is true even while walking around to more open spaces around the neighborhood. I would say my calls drop completely about every other call. I don't notice a data or text problem, however I do use wifi a lot. I can't talk on the phone when I am in this area I must wait to use my phone in other areas of the city.

Att shows on their map full 4g LTE when the service is terrible. Most places don't have 4g LTE only 4g. you would think that Downtown L.A being the City you would get 4g LTE everywhere full bars.

Few months ago I switch to T-Mobile from sprint, I gave up my note 2 for a note 3 and I regret it because the service is worth than Sprint and the price is the same if you want unlimited 4G and the phone was 799.00 which 350 was a deposit for it and the rest needs to be paid if you want the phone and your number so is the same as a contact, they paid 325.00 to Sprint so I'm really paying 799 to get a new phone, where is the deal? If you want a new phone buy it used.

Problems started when moved to new apt. (Mar. 2014) O or 1 bar, dropped calls, messages failed to sent, no internet access, pgs failed to load, voice mails hanging somewhere, and then... POOF! 25 messages outta nowhere and fast.metropcs and fast-t-mobile ALWAYS out of range. Though I must say, customer service techs. have been so good -pleasant, helpful, direct and financially comp'd me! ( Faint) Still no solution. Metropcs claim connectivity "excellent" Entire nghbrhd and Metro pymt store say prob has existed since car took out utility pole at Figueroa and Meridian 2 yrs ago. We'll see.

Never reception. Dropped calls. Missed texts and incoming calls. Have to drive 3 to 4 blocks away to use it. They need to put up a tower in this area due to constant jet interference. I do love the phone though.

Coverage is increasingly worse and text messaging has been a huge problem: messages repeatedly say "Failed," then recipients get multiples of the same message, goup messaging is out of order and / or never delivered, calls dropped and / or sent directly to voicemail, wi-fi spotty and inconsistent even though I have Verizon at home?! Customer service has been terrible. Thinking of switching to T-Mobile in this area but no idea if that will be worse...

Service cuts in and out. Most number of bars I get is 2. Calls frequently not received and sent directly to voicemail. My husband was waiting for a phone interview for a job, and the call was dropped - he received the voicemail the interviewer left a full 30 mins after the fact. Seriously unacceptable, AT&T!

Voice service is fine. 4G data becomes 2G and LTE does not work on my street. Two block radius between Stadium Way and Laveta Terrace seems to be dead zone for Sunset Blvd.stretch. Apparently this goes for other carriers not just T-Mobile.
