Difficult to understand how a major carrier can have no coverage near the servicing airport for Erie. Losing significant customer base in a financially significant portion of the metropolitan area. My Verizon hotspot from work gets widely variable 4G data rates here (4-15 Mbps) but it is continuous. T-Mobile gets *nothing*, not even ability to send a text message.

Since Tuesday 10 / 15 - 10 / 17 I'm having difficulty calling one person, call keeps dropping. Is this their end or mine. The other person has no problems calling me however the reception is poor (breaks up) and our call was dropped several times in 15 minutes. Gave up and texted the person. I'm getting no G's and 1 bar at best. Never experienced these problems in my home before, usually at the Mall or at Wegmans I get these types of reception problems.

Terrible service with Sprint since may. Three bars and still dropping calls and bad breakups in conversation. Manager at store says patient it will be fixed soon that was many moons ago. We have been paying full price with less than half service. And Sprint claims there phone switch to Verizon towers when Sprint network is not available. But that is almost completely worthless because I will drop the call before it switches. And then as soon as it picks up a poor Sprint signal it goes back to the same old low quality high price poor service. It is looking like AT&T is gonna get my business soon.

Unless I'm in the basement of some huge building, I never have a problem. No dropped calls or missed messaged. Solid coverage.

I have the Motorola photon 4g... ..thanks to GE there is one 4g tower in Erie but I think they just blocked everyone not on their payroll. I was in Bellville TX (population 15,000) and had FULL 4g. Also, ANYWHERE in TX the 3G coverage is faster than ANYWHERE in Erie. I will be switching to either T-Mobile or Verizon within 63 months.

I usually receive great service inside my apartment. Today I do not. I am temporarily getting 2g or no reception. I have to use my WiFi to do anything.

In my own home I usually have 0-1 bar of service. I often do not even receive calls. I will find out later that someone tried to call because I will have a voicemail message pop up when I do get enough reception for it to come in. Same thing with texting. I can almost never send / receive texts on my main floor and can only do so in certain spots on my upper floor. I drop calls constantly. I cannot walk around my home when on the phone, because I WILL drop the calls. If I go outside it does get a little better. But every month I get charged for roaming in my own home! T-Mobile is a very poor choice for this area!

4G is very spotty, especially in buildings. Within a 100 feet 4G pops up, else it drops down all the way to 2G

Had the service since June. I got that deal where you get 2 free Smart Phones with the Unlimited Internet plan. I will break it down. Phone Call coverage: 8.5 / 10 Texting: 8 / 10 (not sure why there is a difference) 3G: 4 / 10 GPS:4 / 10 Yeah did not see the point of the 3G if I have to rely on my WiFi in my own home. I am glad my home network is better than my 3G. Now they are coming out with 4G! No coverage in Erie yet. I am thinking how can you offer something new already if you are not already caught up with your 3G yet? They claim to be one of the 1st competitors to offer this service (4G) in most cities, but their 3G is not even in most cities.

I have had Verizon for over 10 years and have not had any problems. No dropped calls good reception. I do a lot of traveling fairly often to the west coast and reception is usually very good where ever I am,

Have to go out of house to get a couple of bars. It's freezing in the winter standing in 3ft of snow in your back yard wishing a Merry Christmas to your relatives! Contacted Sprint about the lack of signal reception in the area below WestLake road and I think I've stumped their tech dept. Thinking of moving to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. to avoid frostbite! Rich

Voice is okay, like in NOT BAD. The only problem is that the lower you go on Peach (south of I90) the lest reception you get on the EDGE Network... IF ANY. I only get EDGE North of I-90. Also AT&T just updated there Coverate Map saying that Erie HAS 3G (Today is 7 / 2 / 2009) and my phone still can't pick it up. Its funny that the local AT&T store is selling 3G iPhones like crazy.

I always have service and I always have for the past 3 years I've had Verizon. Even when it says I have no bars, I can still make and receive calls and texts. It very nice.

Have had cellone for over 6 years with not to many problems. Since AT&T has taken over the only problems are with the service not the reception. We used to have issues with Motorola phones so we switched and th enokia and sony erricson work real decent. No problems with dropped calls and all the times we have had to use them to call twc thats a miracle. The only time it really drops below 4 bars is if we are in a heavily wooded area but it still works.

New Tower on Hilltop. Boosted my reception in the neighborhood from 3 bars to a consistant 5, even in my basement. Bad coverage around GE area and especially in the GE buildings.
