2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Princess Anne Between Witchduck and Newtown, Virginia Beach, VA 23462 |

I constantly have dropped calls. I have to walk around my house or even outside to complete a call. I have been with Sprint for 12 years now... I think it is time to switch to a new carrier!

Between Poor and Below Average. I get 1 bar within my home of 4GLTE but if I step outside I will get 3 to 4 bars of 4GLTE. Have to use WIFI while in my home. If I step into any store 10 to 20 feet I lose coverage all together. Signal strength falls severely while within ANY structure. Looking to change carriers with better INDOOR signals.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Kempsville and Centerville Tnpk, Virginia Beach, VA 23464 |

I rated AT&T a "1 Poor" because they literally are in this are. And when I say "in this area," I don't just mean the location where my home is, but a majority of the lower Hampton Roads area. Here where I live, I have never seen even 4 bars of signal. When I go to the VB campus of TCC, you are very lucky to see even 2 bars. Most of the time in class, my phone says "no signal." It's very frustrating. Around town, I rarely see 4 bars and I've NEVER seen 5 anywhere in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, or Chesapeake. So my wife and I have agreed to dump AT&T right away. We do like AT&T for one reason - you can be on the phone and browse the Internet, look up a phone number, or use navigation all at the same time. Verizon doesn't even allow you to do that with an iPhone - yet.

Sprint has always been marginal compared to friends with other carriers in the area. Now, with their rebuild; it's been horrible for the past few months. Customer Service will give you the run around. Completely unreliable. Do not be enticed with cheaper rates - you get what you pay for! I will change carriers as soon as I have the ETF covered.

Verizon is definitely the way to go in the area. The phone works well wherever I go and even works well indoors. No complaints from me at all about the signal.

Att is very poor in the area. Next time I will get Verizon since they seem to cover everywhere. AT&T has dead spots in too many areas to feel comfortable with them.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Foxfire Off of Seaboard and Princess Anne, Virginia Beach, VA 23456 |

I RARELY get reception with AT&T living in Foxfire neighborhood. If i'm downstairs, my phone constantly says "service unavailable", calls get dropped or not even received! If I go to the second floor of the house, I get reception and can have an actual conversation through calls or texts. It's so annoying having to search for reception. Boyfriend has Sprint and claims his reception is always available. I will most likely end up switching carriers!

The call quality is okay but goes in and out from time to time. The internet is terrible! Super slow and pages never load all the way. My text messages are ALWAYS delayed. The time I receive them are always at least 5 minutes or more late from the time stamp on them. I get roughly 2 to 3 bars of service throughout the day. 4 bars if I am close to Town Center.

Signal strength varies between 2 to 5 bars. Says connected to 4g, depending on time of day, data speeds are very good. If home during the day on a weekday, data is good. Weeknights and weekends data speeds are intermittent. Obviously the towers get well loaded.

Hope AT&T improves. Wireless voice on iPhone 4s is unreliable at best. Have to go outside the house to even attempt to use phone. Not a new problem. Verizon iPhones work fine in same location. (Verizon land lines in same area are old and unreliable). Guess you can not win them all.

Voice is great. Works perfectly except areas closer to the base. But Data connection's horrible! I've called about it and they said they're putting up towers and then gave me $15 credit. Called again and still no progress. I get no data at all in my neighborhood.

I live one block off of Ferrell Pkwy. and Indian River Rd.in the Brigadoon Pines section. I get no reception in my home at all even when fully charged. My carrier is Verizon that took over from Altell many years ago. I am very disappointed. I am switching carriers after I read all these reviews.

I have had a really bad experience with t-mobile. They suggested that my device is limiting my service. I am very skeptical to renew my contract with them and they seem to sell devices before they are fully developed. Thinking about switching service and going for the iPhone.
