I may have 4 bars but service is schetchy. Just got off the phone with a rep who told me there are 4 cell towers out, and they've been out since yesterday. The real kicker is with their new contract agreement, they don't give credits for lack of service anymore. Imagine that, they're in business to provide service, yet they can get away with not providing service. What a joke!

I do not understand this... the phone says it has 5 bars of 4G, but the internet is super slow... simply put my phone does not work in any building. ATT is really bad, Im stuck with them for another 2 years...

Terrible reception, especially data and SMS! Dropped calls, too. AT&T fail, I am switching to Verizon!

Every single call I make get dropped at least once in the course of our conversation. It takes 3+ minutes to load apps that use the web. Trying to load my twitter timeline today took more than 5 minutes. When I called to tell them about their service, they transferred me to about 6 different robot machines. When I finally spoke to a person she told me she couldn't do anything for me. I'm transferring to Verizon!

I get NO service for most of that block and surrounding blocks north and south. It sometimes appears to have service but it drops calls within a few seconds. Since the phone is constantly searching for service, the battery drains even more quickly than a normal Curve (which is bad.)

The service at my house is almost nonexistent with average of 2 bars at most. My office in Long Island City is even worse. My coworkers and I often have to go outside to even place a call as the phone is unable to get a signal and complete any calls. I am not even sure how to explain and validate to AT&T that the two places I spend 90% of my time in have no cellular service. How long AT&T can get away with this?

Spotty. Many dropped calls. Speakerphone 'on' offers better sound but that's compared to horrible when speakerphone is 'off.'

Well i've had Verizon as a carrier since 2003 and service has been gotten worse. I used to get decent signal (4-bars), but lately I get 1-bar and my battery drains in a couple of minutes when in use. Its not limited to Verizon either. I've tested Boost Mobile and T-Mobile and they all get 1-2 bars unless i'm in the middle of the street. In doors? Nada, forget it! Regardless of the phone model used. Note:there have been new building constructions around me, so I assume the network is slowly getting bogged down with the growing population...

Lost reception last week Wednesday April 13th. Don't know why reception dropped to zero. I think it might have been a tower issued but ATT is no help with that. I really hope this won't last long because it's our only phone and I work from home. Just another note, went to ATT on Lex and 45th st and it took less than 10 seconds (not kidding) for the guy to tell me I need a new phone because the battery is dead even though the phone is 3 months old. He said "that's electronic stuff, it just stops working"

I am so sick of the AT&T iphone situation in Greenpoint. It's isolating and infuriating. I've had an iphone for 3 years living in Manhattan with no problems. I just bought the new one right before moving to Greenpoint and now feel like I've been robbed. Nothing could be worse than this. I will try to call 10 times before a call will go through just for it to get dropped another 5 times within a 10 minute conversation. Hardly anyone's calls come through. I get voice messages hours later. I've contacted AT&T at least half a dozen times to complain and the customer service is always polite and apologetic but worthless. I'm through. Anyone want a brand new, piece of s#!t iphone?
