3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Bernard | 27th, Spokane, WA 99203 |

I have a basic phone that has zero - two bars. However, calls and texts always come through. No "no service" messages. The same is true at FAFB. Since it works, coverage is definitely "good enough." I had a Smart phone and it did not get service reliably, so I went back to a basic phone. I'll take reliable service over bells and whistles any day.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 29th St. | Lincoln, Spokane, WA 99203 |

Live just north of Comstock... reception here is abysmal and does not reflect properly on T-Mobile's coverage map. In fact, I was sent a signal booster just so that my calls would would work from inside of my house. Signal strength is poor and data oftentimes doesn't work until I'm closer to I-90 or 29th and Grand. As for the FAFB comments, the signal there is pretty bad. I drop calls regularly when driving near the BX / BK / Gym areas. Further towards the flightline isn't too bad, but data barely functions.

Do not get reception at house on south hill (not even 1x). Also do not get reception at EWU where I work. So basically the two places I am most often I do not have coverage. It is ridicoulously frusterating. Had my SIM card changed out... no luck. Definately would not recommend Verizon east of Freya on the South Hill.

No reception inside or out. Must drive at least a mile away from apartment and then coverage is sketchy. I came from Phoenix where coverage is really good to absolutely no coverage. I work from home so if the reviews on this site are correct I will be contacting Comcast for a landline and switching carriers to Verizon or Sprint. Most likely Sprint because Verizon is way more expensive. I had Sprint before and never had coverage problems unless I was out in BFE where there are NO towers whatsoever. And Sprint has affordable plans.

Zero to two bars, nothing steady, dropped calls, delayed texts, delayed v-mails. I would hate to upgrade my phone and / or plan and get the same poor reception. It would be nice to get rid of the land line; however, it is more reliable.

We've never had good Verizon service where we live and, the "smarter" are phones are supposed to be, the more we feel like we're wasting money. In order to update my smart phone apps, I have to drive a few miles to a location that has better coverage. Most of the time, my 3G phone is reminding me with a verbal message that I have no coverage. I've been reluctant to buy a newer phone for fear I'll just continue wasting money.

Consistent coverage throughout the Spokane area and I even get decent reception at my parent's place an hour north outside Chewelah. Only random data dead spots like the Trading Co valley area off the Pullman Hwy. and approx. halfway through Airway Heights for a couple hundred yards.

I work in East Rock Point building. The SAME BUILDING that a Verizon corp Wireline and Wireless is LOCATED! I have a Cell tower less than a mile away! I go OUTSIDE, and I get terrible coverage, and even when I do get good coverage, I NEVER get 3G. I'm thinking of dropping Verizon. So tired of having no data signal...

Last month my phone started making a weird beep noise (almost like I was being recorded) and I have had extremely bad connections- all conversations include "what? what? oh, sorry. Am I being recorded?" ugh! I did some investigating and Sprint is upgrading it's network to 4G and this started mid-June and will last thru Dec. Good news is that they will send an airwave device to boost cell service. If you are in Spokane and experiencing this also, call the customer service agent and ask for the airwave device.

Really poor reception with Verizon in my house, often only get "Searching for Service" which wears out what battery I have left. I live in one of the infamous South Hill Black Holes for Cell Reception. Voicemail and texts are worthless, because if I receive on when the phone is not receiving, it goes into some cloud queue and I'll get a notice two or three weeks late that -BING!- I have a voicemail. The Verizon people say that even getting a new smartphone may not make any difference - it's all line-of-sight problems.

When I first moved to my new home in '05, 3G was terrible out here. Two years later, AT&T finally did something and I have gotten fantastic reception ever since. Not sure if they put up a new tower on the west side of the Prairie or what. Now it seems like LTE is finally coming to Spokane, but I can only get it at my house so far. I have to assume they're testing on some distant tower before the area goes live, because I only get 1-3 bars so far. Bring it on, AT&T!

I have between poor and no reception in my apartment. Going outside means I can usually finish a call with out dropping. If this keeps up I am going to switch to Verizon again so I can at least get and receive calls. Maybe I will just switch to a land line. It is very annoying.

Moved up here from Houston where Sprint has 4G WiMAX. Sprint service is so bad in my house by Rosauers that Sprint actually sent me a booster that routes cell calls through my internet (comcast). I don't get any data so I'm using my WiFi. Jumping ship to Verizon asap.

I have had Verizon for about 12 years now. About 3 years ago I moved into my new house and we had absolutely no reception. I paid $300 for a mini cell phone tower for my home. I would say maybe 65% of the time I have reception now. It sucks. I have had numerous dropped calls and sometimes I can't even check my voicemail. Very crappy service. I noticed on their website that they advertise that service is available in my area. Flat out lie and misleading. My contract expired yesterday and I will be switching carriers. Has anyone notice there are no cell phone towers on the South Hill?

I've had AT&T for 5 years. My husband drives to Troy Montana every week day. We have great reception until he gets to Troy. I don't have many dropped calls at all. We love our phone service!

AT&T has very poor coverage of the 5-mile, 9 mile and eagle ridge areas. 1-2 bars. Data is slow and often non existent. text tends to be delayed often as well. In the Spokane area, AT&T is a very bad choice. I am moving to Verizon soon.
