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...

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Sunset Blvd. | Allison, Los Angeles, CA 90024 |

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.

Sprint is just terrible. I have dropped call all the time. Picture messages are rarely sent. This is the worst service and I am in the process of switching over to AT&T. Please DO NOT get Sprint. It's terrible everywhere. I left T-Mobile for them and regret it.

AT&T works very well in this area of mid city los Angeles. I get verifiable 20 meg downloads and 5-6 meg uploads from my bedroom. My wife and I have no problem using FaceTime over LTE phone to phone (iPhone) all in all it's better than Verizon. Cheaper too 3 users 10 gigs data unlimited everything else 2 iPads data all for $165.00 before taxes. Very happy

A month ago, we gave up 2 iPhone 4s' on Verizon for 2 new iPhone 5s' on T-Mobile... mainly to save some money since TM offered a better deal. What a huge mistake we made! Cheviot Hills where we live is known for its poor mobile reception, and Verizon wasn't stellar there by any means. BUT, it was SO much better than T-Mobile which is almost completely unusable at home... even standing outside on the sidewalk! Have repeatedly had dropped calls elsewhere in West L.A. - Pico and Westwood intersection, Beverly Hills, some parts of Culver City, Santa Monica, etc. Doesn't work well where my husband works in Pico Rivera either. We get dropped calls even with 3 bars displayed. Also now having problems with text messages. Can't explain why we didn't return these new phones within the 10 day trial period. We are now stuck with brand new iPhone 5s that are not very useable other than as very expensive iPod Touches!

Constant dropped calls. Incredibly poor to absolutely no reception. 3g network seems very slow. Very disappointed in AT&T, which has far better coverage in NYC.

After reading about the other choices maybe Verizon is not as bad as the others. It is still a very low bar to go by or should I say no bar to go by. I have had Verizon for 15 years. Before I upgraded to the Samsung 4 g the reception was almost none existing at my house. The 4 g is much better for calls, but for going on line forget it unless it's 3 am. Part of the problem is these towers get over loaded. We have so many people with 4 g now on the Westside that it is slowing everything down again! I was thinking about switching today, but maybe Verizon is the best of the worst. Like I say "Go With The Crook You Know"

Sprint service is the worst. Slowest data compared to others. Makes me want to vandalize their store!

Crappy network. Slowest ever, speed tester at 0.1mb / second on average. Friends with Verizon test at 12.0mb / sec, ATT at 6.0mb / sec, T-Mobile at 2.2mb / sec. If you think it's not much it's extremely slow. Imagine not being able to use the navigation app or stream music like Pandora. Picture messages most often fail to be sent.

Terrible! Left Verizon for this crap! I feel like protesting outside their business. No LTE and 3G runs slower than the old Edge speed. They are in the Stone Age with speed.

I bar at best. Go 1 block east or west of Robertson and good luck getting any signal.

Beside no reception, trying to get help was a bust, had to return phone and got nothing but grief. I will have to contest charges with my credit card company. Don't even think about using them no matter how good the deal sounds.
