4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | 5th Ave. | Wall St., Seattle, WA 98121 |

Just switched to AT&T from Verizon and so glad I did. Much better reception in my home and throughout downtown area. Where I got 0-1 bars with Verizon I get 3-4 bars with AT&T. Haven't had any dropped calls.

Zero to one bars in my apartment. Very spotty throughout downtown Seattle area. In some areas, you may have bars but no data will go through. Very frustrating. Just switched to AT&T and MUCH better reception and performance all around.

Sprint coverage in Seattle is so bad that I was in the middle of SeaTac, 8th floor of a building, entering my credit card info to pay my Sprint bill (!), and the call was dropped.

No reception at our home and almost none around our home. We can use Wi-Fi in the house (which is great) but middle school kids out about in the neighborhood and walking home from school get one to no bars of coverage in a 15 block radius.

I hate to say it but I have been lucky with AT&T. Calls are clear and I usually don't have to worry about dropped calls. I also got my son a Boost Mobile phone for Xmas and cell service and customer service both stink. Iam trying to figure out away to get him switched but Boost is no help. I will figure it out tho. Hopefully soon.

Seems like Sprint service is going to crap. Looks like others are crap to. There are four towers according to the map but in the house I get 2 to 3 bars. Sometimes I get a red x. More than sometimes. and the internet in and out constantly. Its painfully slow most times. Most everywhere I usually have a max of 3 bars. Calls go to voicemail. Cant hear someone from out of state sometimes. I was surprised that in Tacoma the other day near hwy 16 I had LTE. Why cant that be in this area. 4G has never worked for me in Tukwila or anywhere around. They say they are working on towers and that's why its so spotty but that's b.s. its really irritating to pay for a service and its crappy.

Since Verizon introduced 4G coverage has deteriorated. Consistently dropped calls, using their air card unable to retain a strong enough signal to transfer data.

Virgin Mobile (on Sprint prepaid network) 5 bars. I actually use my phone (HTC EVO 3D) as a voice communication device. 2500+ min / month. I rarely drop calls, generally 1 or 2 per month, generally while driving through a known poor reception area, 23rd Ave and E Cherry st. In 18 months I have had great coverage in all advertized good coverage areas. One cannot expect coverage where Sprint indicates there isn't any.. My suggestion for those with coverage issues is to update the PRL often, this is a must in the CDMA realm. I'm on this site researching the current actual Sprint 4G LTE coverage around Seattle as my device is in need of eventual replacement, and uses the old proprietary WiMax (Clearwire) for it's 4G solution, and any replacement will be LTE.

I frequently do not receive incoming calls (straight to voicemail) and it usually takes 5+ seconds before my outgoing calls start to ring. My work phone is AT&T and works significantly better.
