AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Carson Rd.Between Rosedale and Carter Rd., Princeton, NJ 08540 |

Reception is intermittent and calls drop frequently both indoors and outdoors. Thinking of switching to Verizon as they seem to get the best reviews (or the least bad reviews) in this area.

T-Mobile

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Farrand (opposite Drumthwacket) | Rt. 206, Princeton, NJ 08540 |

Switched to T-Mobile since AT&T was pretty spotty and coverage went from bad to non-existent.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | N. Harrison | Valley , Princeton, NJ 08540 |

Signal inside varies from zero to (infrequently) four bars. The T-Mobile solution is to offer a "signal booster" device, but only for a single family dwelling. Also, though promised, the availability date of this hardware keeps moving forward so we haven't been able to get one to see whether it helps. Mostly these days I use my NetZero DSL wireless connection to use my phone at home. Sad.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Washington Oaks Development | Between 206 and Mercer St., Princeton, NJ 08540 |

AT&T signal reception from within my home is close to zilch. There are intermittent bursts of 2 bars but mostly 1 bar at most times. Calls get cut off or just fail to dial out. Incoming calls audio is very poor.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Cherry Hill Rd. | Cherry Valley Rd., Princeton, NJ 08540 |

For years, my reception in this spot was poor and erratic. A few days ago I started getting consistent 5-bar reception. I think a new tower was set up nearby.

Something changed recently. We've lived in our home for over 9 years and have always had good reception. Recently we noticed that signal strength has been poor with lots of dropped calls. We got new phones and had major issue activating them because we could not get a signal without being in a very specific spot in our home. New phones did not help. Our guest complain about the same problem. We do not have any new wireless equipment in our home.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Franklin Ave. | Snowden Ave., Princeton, NJ 08540 |

Cell phone reception is supposed to be "good" here, but is terrible in this area. Dropped calls and sometimes miss calls, people can't hear me etc. Reception better when I leave this area, but unpredictable. Calls to customer service unsatisfactory so far. Email, web browsing work great but I do need to make calls. Sprint TV is poor except right after I call customer service to complain - then it works for awhile. Haven't tried an airrave yet so don't know if that would help. They are out of stock anyway.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Madison St., Princeton, NJ 08542 |

Completely erratic and sub-par at best around the house. Can't help thinking T-Mobile reception has got worse over the several years we've had it. Wherever I go I often hit places with no bars at all, when other people seem to be happily making cell phone calls. Not the phone, since everyone in my family has a different phone, mine being the only original issue one.

There is a brief dead spot for AT&T reception starting from intersection of great road and cherry valley road going south towards rt 206. It ends near the princeton academy. I travel through this route frequently and my active call always hungs up on me.

Verizon and AT&T have recently installed cell sites atop Fine Tower, a building on the Princeton University campus and probably the tallest building in Princeton. Cell service in Princeton should have improved dramatically as a result. I understand that Sprint and T-Mobile will also be installing cell sites in the same location very soon.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Feinberg | Washington Rd., Princeton, NJ 08544 |

Reception is, in general, extremely poor. At the top floor in Feinberg, I can get some pretty decent reception (4-5 Bars) but when walking around campus, reception is very bad.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Princeton Battlefield | Mercer Rd., Princeton, NJ 08540 |

Tough to make and receive calls, especially inside the house. I almost feel like there's no point in having my cell phone anymore, since my husband (on our family plan) can't get ANY signal on the Princeton campus where he works.

I have poor to no reception in the Kendal Park South Brunswick area. There is absolutely no towers or reception on New Rd.with this Samsung camera phone. I am told that it is the phone not T-Mobil. Also, in many parts of Princeton. I hear there is a tower at the University but they will not allow it to be used.

T-Mobile

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Butler Apartments | E-Quad, Princeton, NJ 08540 |

For some reason, there's near perfect reception in the Engineering building (Olden / Prospect Street). Even in the basement of the building, T-Mobile will get great reception, while my friends with Verizon do not. But in Butler Apartments only two blocks North-east, there is nearly no reception inside the apartments. If you step outside, OK! (2-3 bars) Inside, nope (0-2 bars). My friends with Verizon also go from full signal (5 bars) to 2-3 bars.

Reception here is terrible, I either have to walk upcampus to talk, or lean out of a window and hope that I get at least one bar.

Sometimes I can get a decent call through if I'm outside. Indoors can get any sort of service. Wish we could get some more towers for the out skirts of Princeton.
