It's a breach of any contract that proclaims a 4g service to their phone customers and its not available, let alone the phone carrier failing to provide a disclaimer to customers where 4g coverage isn't available. And to further show the integrity of these phone providers, their phones are Programmed to flash the 4g data connection on their customers phones leaving unknowing customers believing their receiving a 4g service. Until customers start filing civil actions against these phone carriers, these phone companies will continue to deceive the majority of their unknowing customers. Start with the BBB to resolve the breach of contract and failure to disclose.

Since we started with Verizon, our service has gone from poor to very reliable. Our dead zones were partly due to the many trees in our yard but that is no longer an issue. We even dropped our land line service last year and are happy with the decision. Verizon Customer Service could be better.

Been with Sprint almost four years. Never did improve yet.Talked to many representatives for Sprint, they all have the same excuses. They must go to school to learn how to lie to customers. They are very rude also. What the use of having unlimited data if you don't get it and still paying for it.

The WORST! I can text sometimes, call yes, but with THE WORST quality. Go on internet, forget that. I mean why not pay $100 for unlimited everything and get nothing.

As soon as you cross rosewood on tower going toward banding the signal goes from 5 bars to zero. Stays between 1-2 bars until 2 blocks past banding on tower.

Low 4G signal. Speeds are 2-5 Mbps on the download. Verizon should add a tower since there is a lot of network congestion in the area. Considering going to a different provider. Had AT&T before and that was much better (4 bars). Hopefully Verizon upgrades the network or I'm leaving.

Phone calls and text messages are fine in this Canyon Crest neighborhood, but we're only getting 1 to 2 bars for any 3G or 4G service. Forget surfing the web or getting any email notifications. It's pretty disappointing considering the cost of Verizon's data plans. Verizon appears to only have one tower in this area. Seems to me they would benefit greatly from putting in at least one more in the Canyon Crest area. There are lots of working professionals as well as lots and lots of college students. Since Verizon does have the best service, they would only stand to gain more customers.

Have reported the problem 15 times. Two trouble tickets. Four phones and two sim cards and still drop calls on a daily bases. Phone mfgr blames service, Verizon has five different excuses. Now what?

I know my phone works okay in some areas, but it should work here with full bars. I'm lucky if I get two. I am up on the side of a large hill in northeast Riverside and I can see all the way to San Bernardino, Rancho Cucamonga and practically Diamond Bar! There should be dozens of towers within line of sight. WHY don't I have adequate reception inside or out!?!?! I am dropping Sprint and switching to a different provider after switching (updating and paying more of course!) phones and still getting POOR service.

Horrible service. Now I understand why my service is so bad after seeing where all the towers are, and the lack of how many there are around me.

No reception in my home, can hear caller but they cannot hear me at all. I have to practically walk clear out to the street to be heard, once I find the sweet spot where the person I'm calling can hear me, I cannot move an inch in any direction or I will hear "hello, hello, hello,". No good need to have adequate call reception. One should not have to walk out of there home to take business and private calls.

Average three out of five bars. Do get an occasional dropped call. 4G LTE signal is weaker at two bars.

In the many years I've been with Verizon, I have never had any major issues with dropped calls. Verizon definitely has the best coverage of any carrier. Friends who have other carriers complain about dropped calls all the time. There have been several times when we are both using our phones in remote areas and my call remains connected and their call almost always will drop. Verizon may be a little more expensive but definitely worth the money to stay connected

No real problems. ATT&T has always corrected any discrepencies on the bill. Have used them for 6 years now, outside of urban areas reception can be hit and miss.

I have the worst reception with ATT. I haven't always had such horrible reception, it's never been great but the problems I have experienced this week have made me decide to find a different carrier. I emailed their customer service and basically was told they don't guarantee 100% good reception... no kidding. Maybe I shouldn't guarantee 100% payment every month. If you are looking for a cell phone carrier and you live in Riverside I strongly suggest you find a carrier other than ATT. Their service stinks.
