Never a dropped call. Always clear. Great data speeds. No complaints or problems with Verizon in this area.

3 to 5 bars at all times but it is rare to have a conversation for more than 1 minute that does not require a re-dial. I have used a French cell phone in the Paris underground metro many times and have never lost a call - and I mean never. I don't understand why the cell service in Austin is so poor!

AT&T reception is really bad in most parts of Austin.

Signal strength jumps from 0 to 5 bars while the phone is stationary. Network jumps form [E]dge to [3G] while the phone is stationary. Calls drop routinely. Inbound calls fail to ring the phone. Inbound messages fail to appear at the phone. Most often, power cycle (on-off-on) will cause "missed call" and "new message" displays for whatever did not arrive the first time. AT&T customer service admitted that this location is "shaded" according to their engineers.

Sprint claims there's coverage, but there is none. If I'm anywhere near my apartment, I can't get calls or, if by some miracle a call comes in, it typically doesn't last any more than 5 minutes, if that, before the signal gets dropped. If it weren't for the stupid 2yr contract, I'd cancel immediately.

Does AT and T even have towers in Austin? I would think not from the reception that I get. Most calls are dropped, and before I bought another phone (it appears the one that came with my plan was made to self-destruct about a month before my contract was up), the only reception that I could get was inside of my house.

I now expect to have each and every call dropped. Even if call successful, full of static, voice of person on other end comes in and out.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 321 Nautilus Ave. | Lakeway Blvd. and Lower Nautilus, Austin, TX 78738 |

Inside the house, calls can be received (phone rings about 1 / 2 the time), but cannot have a conversation. 1 / 2 block up the street at the intersection of Lower Nautilus and Lakeway Blvd. there are 3 or 4 bars and reception is usually adequate.
