2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | 102nd Ne Halsey | Weidler, Portland, OR 97220 |

my service was really bad when I first moved out here like 3 years ago then after a few months it got better. so here we go again service is going downhill since march of 2010. dropped calls phone not ringing, getting double text messages, no bars very frusterating. I have called T-Mobile they said they would have a tech check it out in 5 days and would get back to me so the tech did get back to me but no technician went and checked on it.he told me so guess what my service still sucks. I wont be signing another contract with tmobile.

I can get 3-4 bard and showing 3g enabled but I cannot make or recieve a call from my house. There is a tower on powell Butte (.6 miles away) I cannot get a call to connect without walking half a block away from my house!

Spotty coverage in a prominent neighborhood on the west side. I need to stand by a window upstairs to barely get any kind of service. Even then its spotty... Very disappointing... only 2 miles away from HWY 26 and HWY 217. Need to improve coverage in this area! Too bad its a company phone or else I'd chuck it too...

I almost never complete a call without someone saying "can you repeat, I can't understand you". Numerous dropped calls and non responsiveness with AT and T customer service. I have another friend who has AT and T with a non iphone and says he does great. I continue to amass screen shots with one and no bars to send over to counter the claims that they have great service in my area.

I was with Sprint for over 10 years, service worked well in the city. It drops off fast as you leave the city for fishing and camping. Moved to NE and no signal in my basement. Turns out that recently their roaming agreements have changed so I can't roam where I used to be able to. Bit the bullet and switched to Verizon, network seems better so far but you sure pay for it.

I think the ratings for this should be changed. I have to choose bars instead of call quality. I average about 1-3 bars in my house but have only dropped 3 calls in the past 2 months. When I used the Nokia E71 I was dropping calls every other day because I was "holding it wrong". Also when I drive around the neighborhood I manage to get though each call with no issue.

I get no reception in the house and have to stand at the end of the driveway to be able to talk to anyone. Service is still spotty sometimes, though, with dropped calls and poor reception.

Had to stand outside or in the perfect spot at home in order to make or answer a call. Phone never worked in any basement. Always seemed to have full bars until I hit the talk button. Has major dead zones down NE Ainsworth, between NE Skidmore and Alberta. TMobile said that they had more towers but then started dropping calls down the I5 corridor, at Lloyd Center, at any Target store, and in SW Portland (near PCC Sylvania). Customer service was always very nice (in person and on phone) but the coverage map isn't realistic.

Switched to AT&T after many reception problems with TMobile. Now I always have reception at home and in the basement. Also have reception in N. Portland, off of NE 33rd, in Gresham, and Gladstone. No problems near the PCC Sylvania or Rock Creek campus either. Only dead zone so far has been on the way to the beach for about 10-20 min. Sometimes my internet is a little slow to load but my phone has issues and I almost always can make calls when I need to.
