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?

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?
We have had our phones for a yr and a half almost.Eveything was perfect untill april of this yr.All of a sudden it was taking a few mins for a call to go through and then we started gettin these weird tones when we tried to make a call.We called T-Mobile they said maybe the sim cards had gone bad.We took the phones to the T-Mobile store at Penn square mall and had them switched out and still got the tones.This only happens when we're at home anywhere else the phones work fine.Called T-Mobile again they looked into it and said there was a problem with the tower at NW 122 and Penn.They fixed the problem this was back in Aug. Here it is Oct guess what the tones are back again this time they are saying theres no Problem with the tower.They refuse to give us new phones because we've had them to long and wont give us any credit on our bill till they can find the problem and make sure its fixed for good.Well we are looking at Verizon because we're not going to pay for service that we cant use at home.Not going to jump in the car and drive down the road a few miles to make a call that we should beable to make at home.Was this review helpful to you?
Hey, living in Oklahoma right now, and I'm moving to Anchorage. My phone was broken, and I was thinking of switching to T-Mobile or Sprint and dropping Verizon. Just want an updated answer on how T-Mobile is doing up there as far as reception goes and 3g. I know they roam off of other peoples towers, but regardless how is at? Thanks.Was this review helpful to you?
