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?
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.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?
Never a problem with reception anywhere in midtown, downtown or uptown. i wish ATT had good reception in manhattan because I want to get an iphone. but I can't miss calls-- I use this for work!Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
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.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?
