Have to be outside in certain spot to talk on a $300 htc, with a payment of $150 a monthWas this review helpful to you?
Revision of an earlier review. We got great reception with AT&T until about 6 months ago. We went from having great reception all over our house, to it being necessary to stand still in a single spot in our home to make a call or send a text. Even then, we have dropped calls. There is no signal throughout much of the area, so going outside doesn't help. Coverage maps seem to indicate that AT&T is the best carrier for this area. I hope it's not true. I don't know which carrier we should use.Was this review helpful to you?
Sucks out where I live. Me and my husband both are always getting dropped calls and no one can ever hear us until we walk to the middle of our yard by the woods. It's so annoying thinking about switching.Was this review helpful to you?
Switched from AT&T to T-Mobil last year because of all the dropped call / no bar issues. T-Mobile was GREAT until Jan 2014. What happened? Did AT&T gobble them up? They're just as bad lately way too many call failed, missed calls and SMS. Can't even call or text out without rebooting my phone between each call / text. What a pain!Was this review helpful to you?
I have been with T-Mobile for at least 12 years and have had very many reception issues. I just moved to Magnolia, TX and I am lucky if I get 2 bars inside where I live. I talked to one of the T-Mobile tech support folks today and he sent me instructions on how to use Wi-Fi calling. Got it set-up but I am still getting only 2-3 bars, at times NONE. I am so disappointed because so many of us use our cells phones as our only phone. Based on the reviews I am reading, I may be forced to change to Verizon. My daughter is on Verizon and will be visiting in a couple of weeks and will see how her reception is here on her phone.Was this review helpful to you?
Switched from Verizon 6 days ago and NO ONE can hear me on my I-phone 4s! I go in-and-out on the call! However, my daughter got the same phone and she doesn't have a problem so maybe it's my phone... we'll see. I'm taking the phone back to switch it out. So far though, I prefer my Motorola Droid 2 on VZW. I will update though when I get another phone to try out. * I was "grandfathered" on the unlimited data plan with VZW and didn't want to change to a shared data plan and only get 4 gb per month and pay full price for a new smart phone so I switched to Sprint. If, however, I continue to have issues with Sprint reception after switching phones, I will go back to VZW.Was this review helpful to you?
I never had problems with dropped calls or poor reception with this phone or carrier. The only thing I didn't like about Verizon was the price. But, apparently if you want to be able to USE your phone, this must be the carrier to pick! (I am currently finding this out!)Was this review helpful to you?
Had great reception in Louisiana. Moved to near The Woodlands 5 years ago. Since we have been here reception is very poor if not there at all. Have made complaints to AT&T. No help from them whatsoever. Will probably switch carriers once contract is up if not before then. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate them a -10.Was this review helpful to you?
I have the HTC EVO 4G and I get 4-5 out of 6 bars inside my house and 5-6 bars when I'm outside my house. I have been in the area for about 4-5 months, and I have not had any issues with my service as far as dropped calls or poor reception. However, I do have a 4G phone and I can't get 4G service in this area at all through Sprint. Also, if you go down Nichols Sawmill toward Roberts Cemetery (near Mike's) you only get 1-2 bars if you're lucky. I guess it just depends on where you're located exactly and what kind of tree coverage you have around your house. If you live in this area you know that there are trees everywhere and a large number of mobile homes. Both of these factors will have an affect on your service, so take this into consideration when grading your wireless provider.Was this review helpful to you?
