Buyer Beware ! Verizon in OKC is a HUGE RIPOFF ! I started with Verizon in the Summer of 2011 and had major problems with dropped calls (including calls with other Verizon users), Days with NO data services, text messages that would not go through. Verizon switched my phone several time with no resolution, finally after months of trouble and time spent a "trouble ticket" was created. Local Verizon sales and support people act like bad used car salesmen blaming the customer for chosing a "bad $600 + device". They are obviously browbeaten by corporate to sell by lying about an inferior network in the OKC area. Don't buy into the Verizon Hype ! My impression of Verizon is they are a monster of a company that sells an inferior product with an extremely agressive sales force and very poor customer support. This was a very expesive and time consuming mistake.Was this review helpful to you?
When I was with AT&T, at my house, I sometimes had 0-2 bars with frequent dropped calls. Other times I had to leave my house and drive 1 block before I could make or receive a call. GPS was hit and miss. With the iPhone, I was forced to buy a data plan but I couldn't get a 3G connection at home and it was iffy everywhere else. Fortunately I had a good wireless router, or I wouldn't have had any data connection, so I was paying for a 3G connection I couldn't use at home.Was this review helpful to you?
I have dropped calls all the time. Reception varies. Beware I just bought my phone and one night Eileen listening to music the head set Jack stopped working. It is under manufacturers warranty and they want to charge 20 dollars to honor the warranty or want me to file a claim on insurance that cost 85-100 dollars. By he way customer service sucks!

Many, many dropped calls ( close to 20%), several missing / late text msgs. Many black holes in the metro area with 1- 0 bars, takes quite awhile for a call to go throughWas this review helpful to you?
We've been with AT&T for years, and never had a reception problem until we were indirectly forced to upgrade to smart phones. We have a serious signal problem with 3G and usually cannot receive MMS. Often there are no bars at all on our Captivates. A daughter comes over with an iPhone and gets a little better reception, but not much. (3 bars) We've been through the normal ringer with AT&T CS and have not yet heard back from their troubleshooting. Last year they told us a area cell tower was down, but when we called back a week later because noone had called us back, were told there was no tower down. When I used the phone I loved, my RazrII V9X I never had a service problem, but I gave up the phone and may now eventually have to give up AT&T Wireless unless coverage improves. They want to get us off of 3G? When everyone else is moving to 4G? Does not sound like progress.Was this review helpful to you?
I have lived in The Village for close to two years and have been battling dropped calls, missed calls due to no signal and many other frustrating issues. I stopped by the Corporate AT&T store for advice. They said I could purchase a "mini-tower" for my home for over $200--but there's no guarantee that it will work. The employee suggested that instead of 'chancing' it, I just switch to another provider. AT&T is terrible in The Village--according to many people I know. If you live there, go with something else!Was this review helpful to you?
Should be getting at least 4 bars. Not good in the house.Was this review helpful to you?
So far, T-Mobile 3G is very strong here, and consistent speeds too. About 5mbps down and 600kbps up, on nexus one. No dropped calls, good quality and very good reception throughout the metro. The only con is that T-Mobile does not have 3G everywhere, and in rural OK where they do have native coverage, its only GPRS (about 25kbps down and up), and it's not good for media intensive stuff, for example, streaming internet radio on a roadtrip. It's OK for email and GPS navigation. I think they're 3G expansion into new areas has sorta stalled or stopped, but I'm not sure.Was this review helpful to you?
I got the T-Bolt from Verizon. 4G is very good where I live, and 3G is good as well. This is tested indoors, so you should be good outdoors as well. Overall, the signal, data speeds and quality are good around the metro area. No dropped calls either. The only negative I have about Verizon is that they have a dead (flaky 1x roaming) spot on I-35 around after exit 79 to before exit 47 outside of OKC (the Arbuckle mountains area). If they could fill that area with 3G (or LTE) it would be awesome.Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T I've been with them for about 5 years and I'm not happy at all... I drive a semi truck for a living so I drive threw 48 states so that gotta explain all off it... 3G is usually in big cities as soon as u leave city limits u can say good buy to 3G and even when it's on its pretty damn slow... I can name few states where u gonna have signal issues is OK, KS, NE, ND, SD and all north of here and the list goes on and on... I dont think my IPhone 4 is bad I believe it's AT&T's poor signal... so this week sometime I'm gonna go to Verizon and get the thunderbolt htc... the reason Im gonna go with Verizon is my buddy is a truck driver and he runs the same route and he has Verizon so it's been compared the right way. Verizon all the way do not make mistake with att... Do your research, choose carefully!Was this review helpful to you?
