Never get more than 2 bar signal strength. Frequently dropped call and often get static interference. With all the complaints when is Verizon going to improve the signal strenth throughout the city. Never had a problem with Virgin Mobile receoption.Was this review helpful to you?
I originaly had T-Mobile it was terrible this was work phone. Had AT&T for 12 yrs in Denver moved down here dropped calls after 3-5 min all the time, Went to Verizon it was great now cant get a signal unless Im in house by their booster can go from 4 bars to no bars. For what these phones cost its terrible none of them are reliable and they dont care either thats what really ticks me off. They said yep your in a bad area to bad.Was this review helpful to you?
NE Colorado Springs coverage is inadequate for the growing population in this sector. There is a tower near Hwy. 83 and Roller Coaster, which is only 1.5 mile from me. However, Sprint doesn't appear to have eq. on that tower. My closest active tower is at Gleneagle, which is 4.5 miles out.Was this review helpful to you?
Data Service is at 2G until we reach a T-Mobile Service center than it goes up. There is not enough Towers located in the SouthEast Division, specifically Jetwing and Fountain BLVDWas this review helpful to you?
Had to get a MicroCell in order to make a call, keep a call. Even with that $200 expenditure, it can be "iffy". AT&T has indicated there will be a tower closer to us. First it was March of 2013 and now it's August 2013. Hopefully, that will help. Like AT&T, but if reception continues to be an issue, we'll look at another carrier for that area.Was this review helpful to you?
Overall AT&T is great nationwide. Overall coverage in Colorado springs is TOO HARD to give an accurate answer. Why? Because you might get full service in one spot and then zero in another. Every single carrier is like that. Every location is going to get different reception. If you are in Colorado springs and get any of the major carriers - AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-mobile, etc, you will get good service in general. Just some will have dead spots where you need them the most (like work or home) so you'll think that carrier sucks and assume the carrier that has reception in those two places - your home and work - you'll assume that carrier is great. Not really the case. Because they might get reception if you happen to move and now at your new house it's the opposite. It's all about location... but anyways if AT&T ever where to read this, keep adding more towers! If AT&T does they will have no problem beating Verizon.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon is not the nations most reliable network by any means - and it surely is not in Colorado springs area either. I would get no service at my work (in the north part of town, briargate area). My friend who also had Verizon would get no service at his house. I also would not get service when at my friends apt. Now of course it varies by location but I only had Verizon for 2 months and there was 3 locations I went too often and never got service in any of those 3 locations. Pretty bad. My friends who had Verizon had the same problem so wasn't phone related. Overall in this city though Verizon really isn't bad. It's average - Verizon is not the best carrier. It's just a marketing thing. People think that Verizon will have service almost anywhere because of Verizon claiming to be the biggest - yet Verizon gets no service anywhere in the mountains.. Yet even small carriers like Cricket will have service in areas Verizon does not. Overall for the entire city of Colorado springs Verizon gets an overall score of a B. Although since it doesn't work in the areas I needed to use it I am giving it a bad rating. Location, location, location... .Was this review helpful to you?
I am disappointed in Verizon's cell phone reception in Colorad Springs. Wish I had done more research on this and I probably would have picked another carrier. Verizon advertises they have the largest coverage in the State but their reception is poor. Unless Verizon improves when my contract is up I will select a carrier other than Verizon.Was this review helpful to you?
Cannot even get average reception outside of the house. It will still drop calls outside. This is with Verizon and Sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
Good compared to Verizon out here. Wish we had LTE though...Was this review helpful to you?
