2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Wall St., New York, NY 10007 |

I've been sticking it out with ATT for a few years and I've had it, had it, had it with endless dropped calls. Worse, I keep getting polite reps who endlessly tell me about 'towers being down or being repaired.' One rep told me I had "metal" in my building! I politely informed her that we use metal in buildings in NYC so they won't fall down. Further, when I point out that I try making calls from Wall St.[my office seems to be it's own personal ATT Dead Zone], which is basically the capital of the planet and not some farm in Iowa, I'm politely told "they're working on it." I've learned to speak faster because it's not a question of IF an ATT call will drop it's WHEN. I have just spent $130 on a Verizon Accolade. It is a pre-paid one month phone. It's not as fancy as my Samsung Impression but it does something ATT phones have a VERY hard time doing... it does ***NOT*** drop calls! Today, 10-18-10, the little Accolade made successful calls from 2 locations [1 in my office another in a nearby building in lower manhattan] where ATT never even shows ONE bar!

Blackberry Boost which is CDMA On The Sprint Network, works fine, 4 bars most times if not 5, it's not perfect, but impressive and very tetherable ;) sure its only 3g but so what, it's on a non contact basis. Beats dialup.

I get 5 bars on my Nokia, but celll simply DOES NOT WORK as it is supposed to. And by that, I mean basics phone conversation! Phone works great in CT, and I just realized the ATT issues after I started working in NYC.

I can go from internet connection to "no signal" "emergency calls only" in under a minute. I receive text hours after they are sent. I rarely can receive a call. Usually I get a voicemail alert hours later. For living the largest city in America, the cell phone reception is appalling. And very frustrating.

constantly dropping calls / the bars showing signal strength do not appear to be truthful, and AT&T denies its happening. had no problem with it in miami, washington DC, colorado nor north carolina, so it's definitely a problem with new york towers. the fact that they won't admit it and fix it is beyond logic and extremely annoying. i think a class action lawsuit should be started to recover our monthly payments for their horrible service and refusal to fix it.

Verizon has been my exclusive phone carrier in NYC for a year and I have never had a dropped call or undelivered text message. I live in Greenpoint Brooklyn (Manhattan Ave and Norman Ave) and work in Brooklyn Heights (Courst St. and Joralemon St). I ALWAYS (no exaggeration) have a strong clear signal both indoors and outdoors.

I have bars but 3G is slow. Constant dropped calls with 3G mode turned on (Dropped all 20 calls I made so far). Switched 3G off and using Edge and getting slightly better reception.

Sure AT&T has problems, but its no where near as bad as T-Mobile, that has to be the worst tri-state area carrier, bar none.

3rd floor of an office building smack dab in the middle of Manhattan and all I get is 3 bars. And I'm near a window!
