T-mobile sucks, especially if you are attending Baruch College. It just loses signals right after I entered the building. I think I should switch to Verizon.

I think there is a troll here. Verizon service is solid. I hated my Incredible. The service sucked on it because it was the device. iPhone shows 5 bars where Droid showed 2-1 bars. Speeds are fast, too. Just got 2.4Mbps.

Service has never been great, but in the past 2 or 3 months, it is almost nonexistant. More than half the time, I cannot get a call through at all. Nor can I receive one. Other times, I get through but I hear my own voice echo back and the party I am calling can hear me but I can't hear them. If I do get through, the call is often dropped and I need to try again. AT&T PLEASE get your act together in NYC (especially in the Village). I can only take so much more of this until I will have to defect!

Wow, I don't know what happened. Suddenly I got 5 bars of service in the Lower East Side. Previously barely 1 bar. I was even using a M-Cell but tonight the new 5 bars are bumping me off the microcell because the AT&T signal is stronger. Well, 'bout time.

On 11th St.or 12th St.walking between University Place and 6th Avenue, I get dropped calls consistently. Also, in my apartment on 10th and University I get very poor reception that has seemed to have gotten worse in the three years I've lived here. It's really nerve racking, though I'm hoping that it will get better as iPhone customers defect to Verizon in January.

Virgin Mobile

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Building | 3rd Ave., New York, NY 10003 |

I don't quite get why Sprint has gotten bad reviews. I use the cheapest phone VirginMobile offers and it has worked perfectly all over town, outside town, and halfway down the stairs to the subway.

T-mobile in midtown is TERRIBLE inside office buildings. Data connection is virtually non-existent most of the business day, especially during stock market hours. Even when the signal indicator shows 4 or 5 bars, the internet still doesn't connect. Call quality is also very choppy. Signal strength would fluctuate between 4 bars and no network, as if there are too many T-Mobile subscribers for their towers to handle. However, T-Mobile data connection in Brooklyn is fantastic, often reaching 3.5G.

I used to have Verizon. Rarely had a problem with reception or dropped calls. I went to AT&T due to the iPhone. Works OK in lower Manhattan (most of the time) where I work, but at home in Greenpoint, my phone will constantly fluctuate the number of bars and even with 4 bars, I'll get call attempt failures and dropped calls. Outdoors is as bad as indoors. Sometimes people will call me and it will go straight to voicemail and I'll get the voicemail hours later.
