5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | GreenBriar | Hwy. 59, Houston, TX 77098 |

Excellent Tech support (Thanks Tom) and customer service. My I-Phone 4 (officially unlocked - $1000 from UK - I just hate contracts) works great except the Data channels for 3G / 4G not compatible with T-Mobile. I only get 2G service for Data speeds. It should be OK for everyone if they merge with AT&T (not less than 1 year).

AT&T IS HORRIBLE IN HOUSTON. I have both AT&T and Verizon phones. The AT&T phone is pretty much a paperweight. The Verizon phone works great pretty much everywhere, even in the elevators and the tunnels. Go Verizon!

Signal is 3G only and Strength is a mere 28% in my office. Verizon has a much stronger signal in the same location.

Horrible reception, either no data, slow 3G or sometimes Edge only. AT&T says they have a problem but have been "working on it" for months now. It seems to worse every day.

I've had all the big carriers... .AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Nextel. Nothing measures up to Verizon. Even in elevators in the Williams Towers, my services is flawless. You get what you pay for, and coming from AT&T, thats horrible service in the Houston Area.

Phone had reception up until April 8th 2011, now I cannot receive phone calls or text but the apps (Facebook, Twitter) still work. I currently pick up someone from the Metro bus stops and it isn't safe to be without a line of communication..especially for women. Get it together Sprint or lose a 10 yr plus customer (with multiple lines).

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 43rd | Shepard, Houston, TX 77018 |

Verizon customer for almost 10 years. We've never had more than 2 bars (out of 5) in the house, and normally it's either 1 bar, or no service. We've had Verizon tech people to the house... they say it's just a bad service area, due to lots of trees and other obstructions. But, they continue to take our money, even though we can't make a call from our home. Service around town is usually pretty good.

I work in the Med Center, and my reception has gone from poor to none lately at work AND at home (home is on Bissonnet) - this is incredibly frustrating because the only time I have coverage is when I'm transiting which is maybe twenty minutes a day. Several people I've spoken to with iPhones complain of this problem at the med center. Why won't AT&T give this area more towers?

On a lease out of Streeter, TX (5 miles from Mason,TX), there is no reception. We were stuck with no vehicle for 6 hours and could not reach out for help.

All of a sudden this part of downtown has next to no service. Never had a problem until this year. It takes forever data to load, I have no access to wifi. Service seems to have suffered lately not just downtown but all over Houston.

No service this morning; then lousy connections with dropped calls. I thought AT&T was a "major player" in cell phones. If that's the case, then they'd better clean up their act in Houston or they've lost me as a subscriber. Their service is sub-par and pathetic.

Reception in this area still sucks over 2 years since Hurricane Ike. It was just ok before but no more than 3 bars outside and variable poor to nothing indoors with most calls over 3 mins getting dropped. Several calls to ATT nothing changed

I have had pretty good luck with my T-Mobile G1 for over a year now. Signal is nearly always strong and clear. Occasional Data issues, but I expect every service to have a few hiccups. Customer Service has always been very good as well.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Shepherd Park Plaza, Houston, TX 77018 |

Poor to sometimes no reception. Verizon acknowledged that my area is marginal and said I have three options: 1. Purchase a cell phone signal booster for the house at $150. 2. Cancel plan with no early termination (I just renewed my contract 2 weeks ago) 3. Do nothing and either deal with it or call forward cell phone to home phone. Not sure what to do because reception is good everywhere else in Houston.
