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.

Verizon

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.

Zero reception in my apartment 5 minutes from downtown Houston. AT&T covers 97% of America, but I guess the Museum District in Houston is part of the other 3%. I've had enough of paying money for no service. Switching to Verizon as soon as my contract is up next month.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Fannin St. | University, Houston, TX 77030 |

The reception within The Methodist Hospital is horrible. I'm here for more than half the day (meaning half my life) and I do not have any reception. So I'm constantly missing calls and messages. I've contacted A&T on a monthly basis about this problem and they keep telling me that they are working on it but it's taking some time. It's 2010 almost 2011 and they never thought that they should put a antenna within the hospital or improve the reception within the Medical Center? With the amount of people that work here or patients that come here; you would think that someone in charge would actually have the intelligence to think that putting an antenna there to improve recepition and improve business.

Zero coverage in our near my house (5 minutes from downtown Houston). Drop calls on I-45 downtown. Regularly drop calls all over town. Can't get on internet except where Wi-Fi is available.

I have very good reception all over with my phone and my So has a lower grade phone and his is typically better. No complaints with service so far, calls, text and web are good. I'm just sick of this contract thing and want to try something else. Cricket or Boost anyone? No more contracts and super high phone bills! I want unlimited everything!

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Memorial DR | Hwy. 6 and I-10, Houston, TX 77079 |

Can't depend on this bleep bleep blackberry bold 9700 for anything. Must get my land line back in case of emergency. Hardly "zip" for making calls anywhere else in the apt. except to stand by window (if lucky it works). Lots of dropped calls. Making calls - phone won't ring unless try several times. Lots of missed calls - phone never rang. It's only a few months old, now the battery won't hold a charge. I hate to say it, but TX coverage with T-Mobile really does stink! I am sick of paying $147 a month for 2 useless "pieces of garbage" T-Mobile phone's. My son is on my a / c with a G1, which isn't much better! When he is at my place, he has to go outside for decent reception.

I always lose reception and get the SOS signal when I drive through Memorial park area. Also I get dropped calls or calls failed message when trying to dial in any part of Houston. I am not sure if it is the Bold 9700 issue or is it just t mobile altogether.

Sprint

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | El Dorado Blvd / Clear Lake City Blvd., Houston, TX 77059 |

Almost never had dropped calls inside my house. A Sprint rep once told me that Sanyo phones get the best reception because they were made for Sprint; don't know if that is true but seems so. My husband and I have the basic Sanyo phones and never had problems even travelling between Seattle through Florida. Our son always had the new-fangled phones of other brands but often had to go outside the house to get a decent reception.

3 years ago ATT service was great in this location. Today I get nothing but dropped calls and network errors, maybe 1 bar outside, completely useless indoors. Even when I'm out and about around Houston with 4+ bars I still get dropped 70% of the time. It's possible that there isn't enough bandwidth available for all the stupid 'smart phones' the lemmings just have to have to be cool.
