Have had Verizon for years in other parts of Milwaukee with happy results. Moved to Riverwest this month and can only get a signal once in a while.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Oakland and Edgewood | Oakland and Capital Is the Major St., Milwaukee, WI 53211 |

Excellent service everywhere. Buy a phone(UPrepaid), take it home, CHECK SIGNAL STRENGTH and then pay for the service. I had Virgin (1-2 out of 5 bars)Uses Sprint towers Boost(1-2 out of 5 bars)uses Sprint Towers I had Verizon from 1998-2007 has 3-4 out of 5 bars but clarity was not good. I still have the phones and checked signal strength today. I had a USCell contract from 2007-2009.The overage charges were the final straw. Then switched to prepaid. I now have UPrepaid (4of 5 bars everywhere!)from Walmart is a reseller of USCellular The flip phone is crystal clear. $30 for 1,000 min. $40 unlimited talk text and too much internet for a flip phone. $50 android unlimited But, limited phone options so far.The service started this summer.

Verizon coverage is excellent in this area. I get 5 / 5 bars in my house, and even 4 bars in the basement. Data is strong and consistent. I have not had a dropped call or quality issues in the area.

I was lured to Sprint from AT&T 8 months ago by the prospect of Unlimited 4g data... . Boy, was I duped. A 4G network is nowhere to be found in the Milwaukee area and Sprint has no current plans for a 4G network. In the meantime your 3G connection will be painfully slow as Sprint shares its network with Boost, Virgin Mobile, Assurance Wireless, Netzero... what a scam!

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | South 6th St. | Greenfield Ave., Milwaukee, WI 53204 |

Very poor reception inside buildings in the area. Terrible data speeds in the entire metro-Milwaukee area, even when next to Sprint towers. Very few problems with dropped calls, despite poor reception, however if you plan to view web pages or utilize any sort of a data connection, do yourself a favor and choose another carrier; The cheap price and lure of "Unlimited" data are tempting, but it's not worth it when it takes you 1-2 minutes to load a webpage, and frequent connection errors.

T-Mobile

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Southwest Milwaukee, Waukesha, Milwaukee, WI 53228 |

I am very happy with T Mobile and I have been with most major carriers... ... Dont get me wrong US Cellular is solid in area... .And of course Verizon Has towers that hung every corner of map, which gives great service most of time. But that being said your paying twice as much then T Mobile which in my opinion is great, no problems no dropped calls, super fast data. The fastest I ever had. So, in conclusion I would recommend TMobile to people living in SE WI.

Terrible reception on my street. Within 3 blocks of my home reception drops off a cliff. Goes from hovering around -80dbm down to -120 dbm on my block.

Within wood building I receive very poor reception; 1 bar of "Edge" service. Outside I can pull 1 or 2 bars of 3G but the data is very slow.

I left US Cellular for Verizon this past year. It was a big mistake! I have to move to the kitchen of my home to make calls. Even there I am lucky to have a phone call not drop. Even moving outside into the driveway its about a 50 / 50 shot that I wont drop a call. Pretty sad! My opinion is if you live in the Glendale area of Milwaukee, do not even consider Verizon as a mobile phone carrier. For the profits that these companies make its a joke that you cant make a phone call every where in one of america's largest cities.

I've never seen more than one bar of reception inside my home. Weather-permitting, I am able to receive a decent signal if I stand in the exact middle of my backyard, but being Wisconsin, that isn't always possible. The neighbors whom I've spoken with have the identical problem. AT&T signal strength is piss poor in this area.

Really Sprint? I have had you as a carrier for too many years to count, and this past year has been HORRIBLE! Now, no service at my house?(and it's not concrete) My son called for his plan, and they told him it was his phone, and to take it to a store... .really? Because the other phones on a different Sprint plan also have no coverage. Second call, they said a tower was down on the Northwest side - sure, they opened a ticket, and were not able to give an estimated day or month this would be in service. Am I supposed to drive 2 miles away and sit in my car to send and receive calls and texts? No answers from 'service reps' at *2. No email response since last week... .what gives? (certainly not me and my $ to pay for Sprint 'service')
