Upgraded to new phone and now I have 5 bar most of the time. I have the free roaming option to manually force it to be on Verizon and I only do that if I'm going into the elevator or basement because the 850 mhz CDMA signal that Verizon uses penetrates the buildings better. It should be even better when they move to 700 mhz after the digital tv broadcasts beging and they allow that portion of the spectrum to be used for voice. I'm happy with Sprint service and the "option" for Verizon if needed underground / elevators.Was this review helpful to you?
great service all around. when compared to t-mobile, sprint, nextel, cingular(at&t), it blows it out of the water. I have lived all over nyc and my service with Verizon is impeccable. rarely do I drop a call, I think it might be my blackberry though, but besides that, no problems whatsoever.Was this review helpful to you?
I'm on the 30th floor and the reception is completely unreliable. I don't know if this is due to the height of the building. I've had problems elsewhere in the city, so I don't think so.Was this review helpful to you?
Back side of the buildings - quality dropped within the last week. Now very poor used to be ok.Was this review helpful to you?
Horrible reception. I get maybe one bar if lucky but even then it only stays for a few seconds. Calls are choppy and drops almost immediately. When people calls it goes straight to voicemail. Same experience with Cingular in the past with Motorola RazrWas this review helpful to you?
Excellent coverage throughout L.E.S. and East Village. I've heard phone models have as much to do with coverage as provider.Was this review helpful to you?
Just got this phone and I have to bring it back. I work ten feet from a window and DO NOT get service. It seems ok outside but indoors the service gets real spotty. Dont know if its the phone itself or Verizon doing something with there coverage. I had a Samsung before and would get good service indoors. The service was getting a little weak and opted to get a new phone with the 100 dollar credit they offered. BAD MOVE.Was this review helpful to you?
One second I have four bars, the next two, the next zero and my call is dropped, then it's back up to four without explanation. This is all while I'm standing in the same location. I can see the Verizon corporate logo on the side of the corporate headquarters downtown from my fifth floor window, and yet all of my calls are dropped multiple times. This has happened with two different Verizon phones. What a joke.Was this review helpful to you?
For the better part of 3 years, I haven't had good reception on 14th St. in the meatpacking district. Everyone I know who has AT&T in this area complains of the same problem.Was this review helpful to you?
Works sometimes outside but never in my building. Have a nice view of an AT&T ad saying they have the fewest drop calls of any network though.Was this review helpful to you?
