I just moved to this location. Indoors, that is inside my house, I get essentially no reception. I can occasionally get a EV-DO network readout (with no bars), and I can get a ring through, but not enough signal conduct a full phone call or to keep the call from dropping 50% of the time. Outside, I get 1 bar, which is usually enough to finish a phone call. Ultimately, I will have to switch networks.

AT&T continues to provide terrible service throughout the NW area of Austin. 1 out of every 3 phone calls received and placed gets dropped, or I receive a message which states 'call congestion', 'dropped call' or a fast busy-signal when I try to dial out. AT&T for the past 12 months says they're fixing their network -bull. I'm going back to Sprint whereby I didnt have all these issues. AT&T needs to begin paying their Customers to get their service as AT&T stinks.

Really bad service from ATT. Plenty of dropped calls or calls that did not ring the phone. After I told their customer service rep that the only way I could use the phone was to stand in the middle of my back yard, she actually said "then you have service". Amazing. Funny part is that the phone, and previous iPhone, worked fine for 18 months. Then 6 months ago it all went down. New phone didn't help.

I was excited to get out of the South Austin / Manchaca dead zone for Sprint but it turns out I have better reception even there. Sprint's coverage map notes "best" reception where I live and it's not true at all. I'm tired of the cutting in and out and the dropped calls and I've only lived here 2 days. What's the deal, Sprint? Been with you for almost 7 years and have liked your deals and phones, but please do something about your coverage area. If you can't do that, do something about your coverage area maps so we are not duped into thinking it'll be the "best."

There is absolutely no consistent reception in this area. I called AT&T, waiting over an hour to get to the right person, and was told that AT&T had no plans to add any towers or improve the reception. Our cell phones are worthless here.

AT&T Service is horrific in this area. Signal reception bounces all over the place. AT&T says they're spending $2B in 2010 to fix their network. I hope its before everyone goes over to VERIZON for reliable, dependabl and stable service. AT&T should be investigated for consumer fraud, having offered consumers horrific service over the past 24 months.
