I've had Verizon, Sprint and now have T-Mobile and have to say that all of the carriers do not provide good service. With all the billions generated and prices of the phones, it is a shame that services has not improved over the years. Barely receive bars, comes and goes as if the wind is affecting it. The only true service I have is via my WiFI - which why should I continue to pay a cell provided if I'm making calls only via my WIFI. TMobile is not providing me the service for what I pay. I'm waiting for my contract to be up so I can drop TMOBILE

90% of Phone calls go to voicemail. If they make it through, they are quickly dropped. Internet and data services do not work. Customer service has been aware of the issue for the three years I've been working in the area, yet nothing has been done. F-

I put my wife on Virgin Mobile (Sprint Network). It is pretty lousy in the Eltingville area. Prices are great ($55 for unlimited everything) but you get what you pay for. Hey I may coin that expression. I just switched to Verizon so I can certain if she needs to make a call, it will go through.

I originally had a Sprint blackberry and for 4 years it was terrible. I had to go outside to get a bar or two if I was lucky. My contract was up so I switched carriers and went to AT&T. It is better than Sprint was and more reliable but still have dropped calls. I had a work phone that was Verizon which was a little better but it blows me away that I live in a New York City borough and cant get decent signal on my cell phone. Maybe T-Mobile is better but 3 out of 4 carriers have poor / fair reception.

Horrible reception. Always dropping calls. It was always bad and worse since Sandy. Verizon is trying to get over on me and telling me I have to upgrade my phone. It's an iPhone 4. How is a new phone going to change the fact that there is a lack of cell phone towers in the area. All the people I know that have Verizon in GK have the same problem!

With a 3G connection on a very old smartphone(one of the first smartphones), I have never had any issues with reception, and being in the Eltingville and Great Kills area 90% of the time, I've always been able to do what I want without issue. Connection is fair to good. Above average, but not perfect.

AT&T works best in this area, and never have problems anywhere I go in Staten Island, recently I switched to boost mobile and, holly s..t, I wasted my money for the phone and on month of service. Boost mobile doesn't pick up signal in Staten Island at all, except a few spots. What a crop!

AT&T is perfect except you have to get data plan and 2 yr contract. Which is highway robbery if you have 5 phones on family plan. Contract never ends.

Sometimes I get really high signal and sometimes it is just crap. Well it is good most of the time so I would say T-Mobile is ok.

When is Sprint will work in this area??? It is really sucks when all your texts fail every time you want to send them. We pay money to have unlimited data and we have 0 data in return. I can't wait for my contract to be over, never again I will use Sprint. Never!

I've had AT&T since I was a Senior at Port Richmond HS living in New Springville near PS69 and then Annadale town, always had excellent svc. Moved to Bensonhurst, Brooklyn for a while and never experienced problems with my service there either. Moved back home to Annadale and switched to Verizon for "cheaper rate", had such terrible service within two months I cancelled the contract and reluctantly accepted the cancellation charges, went right back to AT&T, that was about a year and a half ago. Since then, I moved to Port Richmond and now living in Tottenville and have had great service, my bf on the other hand has Boost Mobile and cannot get a signal in Tottenville if his life depended on it. AT&T always has great service, never have issues anywhere, even had best service during Sandy. I hate the contracts, surcharges and fees though!

Absolutely rediculous - no service since Thursday 11 / 29 / 12. Customer Service states Tower in area overloaded yet nothing being done about if for 3 DAYS! They state they'll document and issue a "flag" for the area. Guess it's finally time to switch carriers, i've been with Sprint since 1999 while everyone of my family and friends have Verizon.

T-mobile is the worst in my area. I hardly get 4G reception. In my basement I get none. They told me to use Wi-Fi in my basement but that doesn't help at all. I have dropped calls and text message do not get received sometimes. I am switching to either Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint this month. And suggestions for Staten Island, NY?
