4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | 9201University City Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28223 |

Reception is generally very good outdoors and in smaller buildings in Charlotte. I usually get about 4 bars everywhere in the city. I have also noticed a significant increase of service inside buildings on campus over the past 2 months. 3G speeds run between 2 and 4 Mbps.

In the Highland Creek area you can have your phone in one spot and see your bars constantly move from zero bars to 3 bars. Bad coverage here.

I rate coverage "3 - Average" because no one has good coverage here. I will say that the major reason I went with T-Mobile is the ability to make calls over Wi-Fi (phone specific) when cellular coverage is unavailable. Now, while in the presence of any local hotspot (Starbucks, etc.), or my home Wi-Fi, I am able to make / receive calls. Best yet, depending on plan the Wi-Fi calls are free!

Phone is unusable in Mint Hill area near 485. Will try another carrier when I find a good one.

Love my new Sansung Sunburst, but will be returning it tonight. Looks great, takes a good picture, but no reception in my office and drops calls on campus and on the road back to Concord each day. My KRZR works great, so I am digging it out of the drawer and will continue to use it until I can find a GOOD replacement.

Poor reception in my apt., constantly unable to make calls because phone says emergency calls only, dropped calls, poor reception. I've had multiple phone replacements, so it's the service. They want me to purchase some mini tower for my home that costs over $100.00 to help with the problem of no and poor service, can you believe it. I never had a problem until I moved here to Charlotte.

I have extremely poor reception in this area. I drop calls and can not send text messages. I went to the store and they told me it was the phone. We switched phones and I'm still dropping calls.

Moved to the area and rented a house in Aug '09. Did most, if not all, of my job search using my AT&T Tilt cellular phone. We're talking 10-15 calls a day for three months. Don't recall a dropped a call. Signal coming in 3G strong. Building a house in the same area now, and find cell reception there to be great as well.

Att is the worst service I have ever had. I have dropped so many calls since I have with them. I don't even get a signal at my house.

Almost NO 3G coverage! If I'd known now what I know today, I'd have gone with another carrier. I should not have to move close to a tower to get good reception! Phone coverage is rarely above 2 bars.
