2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Comanche and Tramway, Albuquerque, NM 87111 |

I just recently moved to ABQ and I am very disappointed with the AT&T reception. If you look at the AT&T cell reception maps for both voice and data, the whole of ABQ has coverage. In fact, they are showing all of ABQ has LTE, which is not the case at all. The reception is very sporadic and the signal keeps dropping. I called AT&T and they told me there are no problems with the towers and I should contact Apple, so I called Apple and they did a few checks, and in the end they told me to go to the Apple store to get the phone replaced. After speaking to the rep at Apple he informed me this is a known issue with the new iPhone 5. After receiving my NEW iPhone I went home to see it this was any better, but after checking, I was still having the same problems (dropped data signal, calls going straight to VM). I decided to go back to Apple to inform them I was still having the same problems. This time I spoke to a different person and he informed me AT&T is upgrading all the towers in ABQ from 4G to LTE and it is causing major problems with the signals. I decided not to get a another NEW phone, but instead call AT& T to verify if is this is the case, and if so when would the new system be working. After talking to a very helpful AT&T operator, she informed they know about the issue (I don’t know why three of her other colleagues didn’t tell me about this when I first called). They don’t know when the new system will be up and running, but she kindly sent me a signal booster (in the mail and enroute) to ensure I have phone coverage. Hopefully this will work, or I might have to change networks.

I like the service except in my house. Many times, the phone won't ring and it goes straight to voice mail which I hate. Anybody living in this area, please let me know if you're happy with your service and what carrier you're using. Thanks ME

T-Mobile

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Stagecoach SE | Via Posada SE, Albuquerque, NM 87123 |

Service fluctuates between 4g and 2g, mostly 2g so data is not possible. Forget answering your phone indoors--connection is either not possible or it sounds like you are talking under water. Installed a Wilson signal booster and antennas yet the tower it targets to increase signal strength is too far away to be effective. Exceptionally disappointing! Don't bother with T-Mobile in Four Hills.

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Academy | Eubank, Albuquerque, NM 87111 |

Often cannot connect voice either incoming or outgoing, and usually the same for data. Horribly frustrating to have to keep a landline just because my cell phone won't work in this well populated neighborhood. Now, my office at work has changed location from one spot in downtown to another spot six blocks away and there's ZERO reception there. The AT&T Wireless regional office is right across the street ironically enough. Submitted to Verizon today to switch our account over to them, will it be better? Other tenants in the office bldg say yes, Verizon is the ONLY network that works in there. We'll see about my home.

at certain times of the day my cell phone will NOT connect, even with a 20bB booster amp on the line. It's odd because texting will work ok, but not voice. I just moved the booster antenna to another location inside my trailer. The reception is very poor depending on what side of the trailer it's on. Now I know the trailer is wrapped in a metal skin, and I have an insulating metal foil material in the windows. The cell tower must be south of me, because the antenna in the north side window doesn't help, but the same on the east side gives me another bar, and now I can make and complete calls.

Sptint can' seem to get its act together in ABQ. Talk / text is mostly OK, but data is laughable. Keep promising 4G but still nada. They told me a while ago it would be 4g in ABQ by end of 2012. Time's runnin' out...

Tried dialing 911 because of a serious incident on Interstate 25 south. Phone had 4 bars, had to dial 3 times to actually get through. Reported this to T-Mobile several weeks ago and still waiting for a call back. Yesterday I filed a complaint with the FCC because of T-Mobiles lack of response. They have incompetent people working there.

The closer you get to the edge of Ventana Ranch the worse it gets. The signal is so weak inside the house you need to step outside to get 2 bars.
