I live in the densely populated Pacific Beach, where you imagine service should be excellent. I get 1 bar normally, 2 on a good day, 3 on the very rare occasion. My direct neighbors have T-Mobile and get at least 20 faster 4g (according to Speedtest, I get ~2MB / s, they get up to 80MB / s or so). Ditch it.

Base of Cowles mountain. I can find only one antenna serving my neighborhood, from 1 to 3 bars as the wind blows it seems. I've complained for years, and its never gotten any better. friends with AT&T get even worse reception.

I have AT&T for two years now and I have never had a problem with them as far as reciption goes. I had an iPhone 5s and now a iPhone 6 Plus and the coverage is excellent on both devices. The download and uploads speeds are extermely fast. I always have LTE coverage at home with 4-5 bars at all times. I use to have Verizon and when I did in this area. My calls would drop and sometimes my text messages would fail and not send. Some of the time in this area when I had Verizon my text messages would come in delayed because of the recpition. Switching to AT&T was honestly the best choice and I strongly recomend it if you live in the clairemont mesa / balboa avenue area just because it is reliable and you would have the best service 24 / 7.

In outside sales. Use Verizon. Never had a dropped call or spotty reception. Always reliable in San diego. Believe me, I use 13gb of data oer month and make hundreds of phone call. It's always done me good. work will no longer pay cell bill so I need to put in my name. Considering options and I think I will stick with verizon.

Just got Verizon for the first time a few months ago and have had problems ever since. Repeated dropped calls, so bad that I knew it was going to drop the first try at calling my wife. The second try was a hit or miss and then when it finally went through we always had to keep our conversations quick knowing it would drop at anytime.

I live in the middle of PB and most of the time I get 1 bar. In my garage I get nothing. Sometimes I get 2 bars and when I do a data test then, I get less than 1Mbit when it works which is not often. Out in Poway where I work, I get 30+Mbit

Calls drop within a few seconds. There is almost no reception. We had to get a land line to use from home and texting is little better. Sometimes I do not get texts until the day after they were sent. Verizon works well almost everywhere else. I have traveled all over the US and never had such poor reception unless it is a very remote area. My neighborhood is in the heart of San Diego. We have hills and this is the problem. Still you would think there could be a solution.
