I have never gotten a signal in my building on AT&T. I've had the service for over 5 years now. The first year it worked and one morning I woke up and it just said no reception. Now with hurricane sandy my time warner service was down and I was completely screwed. I just don't understand how they claim to have the best network and coverage but in the most important city in the world there are dead spots all over. Verizon, sprint, t-mobile, and virgin mobile all get signals in my apt but not AT&T. Very pathetic

Reception in this are is almost nonexistent for an AT&T customer. My oonstant complaints have caused the carrier to discount my monthly bill on several occasions. Due to the poor service, they have gone as far as cutting my data fee in half for as long as I remain a customer.

Day 5 and still can't connect to network. Issue started October 1, 2012. Can't call out, receive calls or texts. Sprint said towers in this area were being messed with because of Verizon. Ticket was closed today at 1pm and now it's AT&T that's effecting service. Sprint claims the issue is the local exchange server. VERY FRUSTRATING to say the least! Manhattan and Bronx NY are affected. However, not all users are having issues... weird!

I have never had the AT&T problems so often heard about. My service in NYC is good. Once in a while, I'm in a building where it almost seems blocked, yet hundreds of of locations, it's fine. I think it's fair to say that is typical of all providers. Hearing AT&T customers say they get 99% call drops, bad connection, unusable makes me laugh. Also, excellent service while driving. 3G music services to my car radio, excellent. Travel to Minnesota, Rhode Island, Florida, North Carolina, great. Can't speak to the other providers but note that if you had a bad experience with AT&T years ago, they have spent billions in upgrades: it's a different service now. Good to very good.

From West Coast. Never had a problem with Sprint in the past. My daughter's I phone works in the house. My EVO only works outside or upstairs. I got the mini cell tower. It did not help so I sent it back. I have given up.

AT&T doesn't have good reception at home, at work or anywhere else. I feel ripped off every time I pay my bill. STAY AWAY!

AT&T coverage is spotty. It has not gotten better in the 5 years I have been on them. Truth is I am struggling moving to T-Mobile and android.

Made a HUGE mistake switching from Sprint to Verizon. Im an ATM technician and move all through the city every day. I carry two phones. Neither of them get good indoor signals. calls dont transmit and I never get voicemails on time. Their tech support pretty much turned on me and said I'm responsible for checking my own voicemail? I didnt have these issues with Sprint. Under NO Circumstances would I recommend Verizon to any NYC resident. Switching back to Sprint next week.

I can't make or receive any phone calls since yesterday morning (service downed for 2 days already). Talked with an ATT stuff and they said there were no service in that area, it not my phone / sim card problem.
