I know this is not the right avenue but I am looking for any and all help to find the hit and run driver who put my daughter in the hospital at this intersection on June 26th and wondering if there is a way to view cell phone tower records for days / times? ANYthing that you can think of to help in my tracking this person down would be GREATLY appreciated -- I will be offering a reward for information and for the capture of this coward. This person was headed from Oklahoma onto Howell, going West early in the morning (6:30-6:45) on June 26th and would have received extensive damage to front end, hood and windshield so thinking may have pulled over someplace close (in Humboldt Park?) and made a phone call. Again, I know this is not the right venue but looking for any means possible to track them down. I flew in from Colorado to care for my daughter who lives in Bay View and has had multiple surgeries and TBI. I can be reached at 719-641-1931. THANK YOU!

All my calls go to voicemail and I get notified later. This happens in many other locations. Stay away from Virgin Mobile.

I've had Verizon for over 4 years. I can't recall one incident, where I had any issues making or receiving phone calls in the West Allis area. Data speeds aren't the greatest around here. I just got the Droid 4 with 4g, and if I put the phone in the window upstairs, I average 500-700k / s. Sitting in Whitnall Park, I got the best speed at over 3 mb / s, averaging consistantly over 1.5mb / s.

I've got no love for Verizon, and actually I'm shopping other carriers because of price. However, in the six years I've lived here in SE Wisconsin I don't remember ever experiencing bad reception. Dropped call, what's that? My phone get used everywhere and even when I'm driving and NO dropped calls. How can one person have perfect reception in West Allis and another is crying their eyes out? Strange.

I have 5 or 6 bars (out of 6) in my Bay View house. I do get dropped calls - sometimes it's very bad, other times it'll happen once and that's all. It's not common, though. Overall I'm perfectly happy with voice quality. Data is another story. Virgin Mobile data on my current phone and on my lost Motorola Triumph Android is VERY slow. If I'm lost or trying to get a restaurant's number on the road, it's almost not worth the wait. It takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r to load maps or web pages most places in the Milwaukee area. I say "most" because it's completely impossible in some places. Basically, Virgin Mobile is just fine for voice, but data is nearly unusable.

I was a Sprint customer for approx 9 years, I decided to switch to Verizon because they claimed to have the most reliable network with the best signal and data speeds. I switched in April of 2011 and got the HTC Thunderbolt. As of the first day of my new contract I have had 0 signal outside my home in about half of the city of West Allis ( actual signal on the phone reads from -102dbm to -109dbm) They did send me a network extender so the phones could work in the house but the $140 I had to spend on the router wasnt worth it considering its also using my bandwidth I pay for. I've made numerous calls and stopped at Verizon stores from April 2011 until now,Oct 2011 and NOTHING has been fixed, in fact they never,ever call you back like they say they will. Verizon Techs have been in the area testing and have admitted via the phone this area of West Allis has "marginal" cell signal for unknown reasons, but has no plans to fix it. I beleive "marginal" is a nice term for "No signal", but they wont admit that. Oh they have also admitted to me that there are alot of Verizon customers near me in this area that have had network extenders sent to them. My opinion is that Verizon knows about a serious signal problem affecting their customers in West Allis, but refuses to fix it, other then hoping network extenders will keep them happy for now. Do not use Verizon in West Allis! I spend $150 dollars a month for two Verizon phones that dont work outside my home in a horrible economy. I spent $500 on two new phones and Verizon wont give me a refund on them even tho this has hapened since day 1, but would be willing to waive my early termination fee, unacceptable! I will not be stuck with two phones I spent alot of money on for a cell service that does not work in a large area. If Verizon won't fix this giant dead zone in West Allis, then they should not be allowed to sell service in West Allis without warning new customers... ..period!

Hesitated between "poor" and "no reception" because, even though Apple gave me a brand new phone last week - it still defies all - Internet connection? Ha! Now I'm off to ATT - am expecting a fight.

Cant receive calls without a drop. Can't receive calls.Should I wonder? The map shows one tower in an area where the other carriers have 4. Never had a dropped call with ATT. Gonna switch back if a phone switch doesn't fix it.

There are problems with coverage inside the home because Sprint's spectrum of choice does NOT penetrate buildings well. Not that any current spec does, but there are homes that still have lead in them. This may interfere with the cell signal penetrating the walls of your home. If that is the case, consider acquiring a cell signal repeater.

Service is average to good, occasionally excellent. Not sure it's worth the risk to change to and learn the nuances of a new carrier. They all have good and bad points.

reception is so spotty. I have never experienced so much inconsistency with cell reception. Very unhappy with AT&T and apple. AT&T has the deepest pockets of all the cell companies and you would think they would have solid coverage in a city.

They say the Motorola V465 is there best seller. First, they only have 4-5 phones until the ones with the keyboards some other fancy deal and a black berry on the way. I have used Motorola phones from net 10 that BLOW the VE465 away I swapped it for the one made by QUALCOMM-Average at best-because it actually has push buttons not that rubber slab looslyin tact to operate functionwit less moving part-creating slippage errors and other function keys are dual purposed-opposity functions-its like having a combo on -emergency off button to operate the space shutle.
