I have had Verizon for 10+ years while living and traveling all over the Western U.S. Tri-Cities, WA is the worst coverage, by far. I cannot complete conversations because I'm constantly dropping calls -- It doesn't seem to matter whether I'm moving (in the car, walking around the house or neighborhood) or standing completely still. Horrible!

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | N. Volland St. | Canal Dr., Kennewick, WA 99336 |

Reception is mediocre, but we have to reboot our cell phones several times a day because we keep getting "kicked out" of the 3G and 4G networks. This also happens on my iPad. We miss many calls every day (call fails) and don't even know it unless we get a text message. I've been getting the run-around from AT&T for over a week. They claim we have tower "issues". Here's a suggestion: FIX IT! It looks like Verizon is the way to go, base on the reviews I read.

Reception is poor at best and nonexistent at worse. 4G coverage is extremely limited. You will find yourself data roaming even in the middle of town, and most certainly if you enter any kind of structure. When you do find coverage it is sluggish. If you live in the Tri-Cities area I would stay away from Sprint as there are far superior options available.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | South Col. Cntr. Blvd., Kennewick, WA 99338 |

Normally have less than 2 bars; some areas of the house are emergency calls only; voice mails come late--phone doesn't ring; don't; receive some texts at all--others come 10 mins to 1 hr late. Daughter took her Iphone to Tacoma and has the same problem with att. I called 611 and they told me there were two towers down that have been supposedly being worked on for the last 5 years--yeah--I don't think service is coming anytime soon--contract is up so will be going elsewhere--Verizon seems to have good coverage here.

I have great reception both out in Finley and in town, have had Sprint for 5 years, just wondering if I am missing out on a better deal, I don't text and pay about $55.00 a month with taxes / Is this high or just normal?

Get 1 to 0 bars when visiting my sister's and 3 bars at home. Can't recommend AT&T to anyone anymore. Shame on you AT&T. If Apple were smart they would drop AT&T and go to another provider. Worst service I have even had since the invention of the cell phone!

It's great out doors. Not that great in our apartments. Sprint has been good but I don't have a smart phone so I don't use data.

I have been with us cellular for over four years now. I have always gotten very good reception. In fact most every one I know has switched too. This is the only carrier I have ever been with, that will work in my house, because of my metal roof and most every were I go.Oh and NO ONE can beat there prices!

0 to 1 Bar of signal. T-Mobile has poor signal strength on the SE end of Kennewick. I can't use my cell phone reliably in my own driveway. Had no trouble with my Net10 phone, just needed a family plan.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Tri-Cities, Kennewick, WA 99336 |

95% percent of the time I get fairly decent reception, Get no reception in Wal-mart except in the smoke room (employee Privledges) in which I can make calls without hassle. I can tell when i'm going to get a call before I get it when i'm at my computer because it interferes with the speakers a little bit. But the LG 1300 is a great phone and almost all of my friends who have cell phones have this model of phone.

The whole portion of Kennewick, southeast from this intersection has pathetic coverage. I cannot use any phone, regardless of brand or provider, from this area.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Columbia Center Blvd. | Clearwater, Kennewick, WA 99336 |

I have been with T-Mobile for almost a year and can't wait to get out of my contract. I bought my phone so customers could contact me, but they can't ever hear me through the static. I called them up and they told me that they don't guarantee service inside any buildings in this area. My voice breaks up when talking to anyone, and they can't understand me. When I listen to my voicemail, I can't understand my messages due to so much breakup. They told me that they are building more towers, but on I-5, and none scheduled for this area. 1000 min for 39.99. You get what you pay for.

Good reception in most places. Cingular is new here for tri-cities and was poor reception at first but now it is picking up. Customer service is very friendly. Will keep my business with Cingular.

Great reception all over Tri-Cities and the Yakima valley. Have had many phones. Even good reception on the West side of WA in Seattle, even though, it is on roam charge, I get reception everywhere. I am Realtor and everyone borrows my old phone to make calls, cause I get reception. I was thinking of switching to AT&T, with my new phone upgrade,but think I will stick with US Cell. Great reception everywhere!

AT&T Wireless (TDMA)

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Gage Blvd, Kennewick, WA 99336 |

Lots of dropped calls throughout Tri-Cities, reception is terrible -- there are quite a few places where I can barely get a call, the calls get dropped, etc., and a lot of these places are on major roads and not somewhere way out in the country. The quality is also exceptionally poor. There have been times when I cannot understand what the person is saying because the background noice is so loud, and the phone chooses to pick up the noise rather than the voice. I have had other phones as well; the problems are the same. I have had enough of AT&T and TDMA at this point; going back to CDMA and US Cellular. I have compared the two many times, and CDMA is just by far the best here. No dropped calls, and no background noise.
