4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Dollar Tree Seneca St., Buffalo, NY 14210 |

I live in a development that was just built behind the dollar tree and there is little to no reception in the lobby of my complex, in the elevator it drops out in the stairwells it drops out but other than that in my room I get between 2-5 bars of LTE or sometimes full 3G not too bad. And the surrounding area is pretty good signal I am a car porter and when I drive from west seneca Lackawanna area down to Fredonia Jamestown I never drop reception. Tonight I am going to test the reception out near Camden NY to see if the signal drops between here and there but so far I have not dropped reception completely

AT&T has been very good to me for the past couple years I've been here, but it definitely seems like there are more Verizon users in this area. I've never had any trouble with AT&T thus far around the city and surrounding areas, but like many others, it gets to be a problem when I'm out in the rural parts; for example, some parts of Lockport, Catteraugus, Batavia, etc.

I've had Verizon for a long time with no issues. But for the past 4 months I have no G. No where. Verizon had me switch out the phone. Same problem develops. I planning to switch carriers as soon as I can. Am I the only one with no G... .?

I do usually maintain the 4G LTE coverage, but it bounces between 1 and 3 bars most of the time. Only sometimes is drops to 3G or 1X. I am originally from Ohio, the Dayton / Cincinnati area. I would say the coverage is a little lower here than it was there. I only occasionally have to reload pages or apps when it is slow. I haven't ever dropped a call here, though.

Have used Sprint for awhile. It used to be horrible in the area, but they have improved by leaps and bounds over the past three years. As long as you have a device compatible with their "LTE Plus" network, network speeds are comparable and sometimes exceed other carriers. Only dislike about the carrier is sometimes the phone will bounce between LTE and 3G when you are in rural areas or deep in the southtowns.

I've been with T-Mobile for a couple years now and constantly changing phones (no reason for the change orher then its just something new) my service is excellent, my only issue is with the customer service and the habitual lying

On vacation from Dallas, might as well left my phone at home. Practically zero data here.

Purchased the iPhone 6S plus mainly for Internet capability out here. It is virtually worthless. Have had the phone for a few days. Big waste of money. Verizon said coverage in Wilson was good. It is far from good. Can't even take or make calls without it breaking up. Better service with the Tracfone here. Paying for data I can't even use.

I spend more time waiting for my phone to do anything I ask it other than make calls. So slow even in the malls. Forget in my house, I only get one or two bars and I have the Air Rave. My contract is up in August and I will definitely be switching.

Making calls is generally not an issue, but for the past 5 days, any time I'm in the Amherst area, the tower sets my phone clock 4.5 hrs fast. It'll randomly fix itself, and then 10min later, it's back to being way off again. When I'm out on Grand Island or in the middle of the city, this isn't an issue at all. It seems to just be the Amherst towers.
