0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | MidTown Tunnel | 36th St., New York, NY 10016 |

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.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | 30th St. | 1st Ave., New York, NY 10016 |

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.

Nextel is pretty good. I used to have a ton of dropped calls with Sprint, but that was 7 years ago.

Reception and call quality are amazing with the BB Curve on Verizon Wireless. I think it's function of both the phone and network though. Though I got pretty good reception and call quality with a Motorola Q9M before also on VZW, they're even better on the Blackberry Curve. I'm still lusting after the iPhone 3G though but have had an awful experience with AT&T on the first iPhone, so going back to AT&T is just out of the question.

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.

No reception 1 / 2 of the time. Call only goes through if I stay close to the windows. If I talk for more than 10 minutes, I will definitely get a drop call.

I have really spotty service. Calls get dropped all the time, calls go in and out, and I sometimes have to stay put in one spot in my apartment to ensure steady service, and that's not even reliable. I'm looking for a new provider right now.

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.
