When going into the BBT from Manhattan to Brooklyn the first 3rd of the tunnel has no reception. Halfway to Brooklyn it jumps to 5 Bars. Same going the other way. I switched from Verizon to AT&T, there is more dropped calls when driving.Was this review helpful to you?
Exceptional service and reception. Occasionally even holds onto service in the elevator going down 14 floors. Absolutely amazing. I have friends with T-Mobile and AT&T service that frequently complain about reception issues or dropped calls. Thankfully, I can't relate. Unfortunately Verizon service isn't cheap, and the phones are generally considered pathetic. I'd gladly drop Verizon if a competitor offered lower rates with similar service, but that hasn't happened yet.Was this review helpful to you?
Shows good reception, but when in a call, it is impossible to hear the other person, and the calls get cut off.Was this review helpful to you?
AT& on my block is pretty useless. I had Sprint before with no problems. Now when I'm in my apartment, I can only send text or use my home phone.Was this review helpful to you?
My preferred PDA is the Palm, but reception inside building on the Treo just didn't happen. I switched to Samsung Blackjack and I can now talk inside my apartment. But, I hate the blackjack for all other functions. Other than as a phone, it sucks.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception inside the Home Depot is either poor, or nonexistent. This is not good for contractors who need to use their phone inside the store for business.Was this review helpful to you?
very poor reception, lots of dropped calls, and many "all circuits busy" messages for me and wife (also on t-mobile). Absolutely frustrating.Was this review helpful to you?
Both with Sprint and Verizon, I cannot hold a call going thur the Queens-Midtown Tunnel (esp into Manhattan). No Signal mid-way thru. Conversely, I can talk with Sprint all the way thru both Holland and Lincoln Tunnels.Was this review helpful to you?
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?
Nextel is pretty good. I used to have a ton of dropped calls with Sprint, but that was 7 years ago.Was this review helpful to you?
