1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Vista Primera-end of Airport Rd. | Zip Is 87507 , Santa Fe, NM 87505 |

As of 10-13 I have had little to no data service, dropping calls, and poor reception when I do get connected. I have tried unsuccessfully to get T-Mobile to give me a straight answer as to why there is an issue and they keep telling me that there is no issue. I'm super frustrated with the lack of support as well as the lack of service.

I have experienced frequent weak signals in the past two weeks and my phone shifts to roaming mode multiple times a day. Texts fail to send and cannot make calls.

My neighborhood is behind a low hill from all existing cell towers in Santa Fe, New Mexico. There is good reception a mile away in mots directions. I would like to get rid of my land line but can't because of poor reception at my home.

Reception is poor on the far east side but there are some fixed spots--just beside north window, right outside my house, where I'll get a good signal. Not ideal but at least reliable.

I have had Verizon for over 10 years, the customer service is just lousy, these reps are rude and just don't care, Verizon has never had good customer service, the coverage is not too bad, but now they have started charging all kinds of extra taxes and charges on my bill, every month it is a little more and I am still using the phone the same way, it is getting too ridiculously expensive and I am thinking I should try a different carrier. It amazes me how greedy these companies are, afterall, I am sure they make lots of money from all of us.

Have had AT&T for four years due to the desirability of the Iphone. My phone seldom worked in buildings and always dropped calls. I recently switch to a new carrier (still have an Iphone) and the difference is amazing. I waited to long to have a phone that actually works! Before I paid $120 dollars a month for a nice camera and ipod! I now have a phone that works with unlimited data and texting for less than I was paying AT&T for limited data and 200 messages. Please do not fool yourself I have stood in line at the AT&T store to complain only to be one of many whose phone did not work also standing in line. Nothing they could do to help me. The Iphone is great - AT&T really should not exist as a cellular provider.

Both phones work OK in town, but I have to get in the car and drive to get reception here usually.

Calls are frequently dropped and often are treated as roaming even though I am close to I-40 / 98th. No choice but to find new provider. Change the cellular model from evo to photon is the best thing that has happened. 5 bars

Even the College tells new students there is no AT&T reception on campus, or in town for that matter. An early post here (2009) says the Santa Fe residents / government oppose new cell phone towers. The towers map would seem to support this as virtually no towers on the old town side, unfortunately that's where the Capital buildings and tourist locals are found. Would be nice to know if the blame for lousy cell reception is with AT&T for not placing towers or Santa Fe for not allowing towers. Somebody should get this fixed, but it appears to be ongoing for years now, so probably won't happen.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Governor Miles Rd. | Camino Carlos Rey, Santa Fe, NM 87505 |

Years ago I switched from Verizon to T-Mobil because of all the dropped calls; delayed voicemails, and terrible customer service. My T-Mobil reception is generally good to fair in town, even in the neighborhood where I'm located, except for the street I'm on apparently, because even when I'm outside the house, I only get 2 bars. Inside, I get 1 bar; 2 if I'm lucky. Never had anything higher except when on analog yrs ago. I'm nervous about the upcoming possible / likely merger with AT and T since that company has such bad service here! I put 87507 as my zip (since it is), but this form says it's not valid, so I'm trying a different one..

Has anyone noticed that AT&T service has gotten considerably worse in the past few weeks? I live 1 / 2 mile from the state capital building and I used to get at least a few small bars of coverage but in the past 2 weeks I get NO coverage at all in my home. I will get 1 small bar and then it switches to "searching". This is beyond pathetic! Has one of the towers gone down or something? The fact that I live in the capitol city of my state and get no coverage is extremely frustrating. I pay hundreds of dollars per month for mine and my husbands AT&T service... .i think I deserve a bit better.

Reception is spotty--2 bars outside and sometimes 1 inside--so it's a 1 rating. What works best in Zocalo?

No service at all. Shame on AT&T for not caring enough to lease some tower capacity. I'm on vacation for two weeks at a state capitol, UN cultural city, and one of the top five travel destinations on every list I can find, and I can't make a phone call? This isn't Death Valley. My family has 5 iPhones and an iPad 3G that are all useless outside a coffee shop. I want a refund this month. Merry f-ing Christmas.

Verizon is advertising 4g broadband service, but 3g is deteriorating / disappearing. This means a smartphone or their wireless network won't work. And old fashioned cell phone still works. We and neighbors have been fighting with Verizon about this for about two weeks and they have been telling us to fix our hardware or software. Finally, a service tech admitted off-the-record that something has gone wrong at their tower and for reasons unknown to him they have plans to fix it. This suggests major dishonesty on their part. They know it is their fault, but deny it and sell us hardware that they know won't work. It looks like they will let us out of our contracts -- that is they won't insist that we pay for a service that doesn't exist. But we are stuck with equipment that is useless. And of course we have lost faith in a company that deceived us. If you are in the Pojoaque Valley don't invest in any equipment that relies on Verizon Broadband.
