Verizon has the best service! most of my friends have T-Mobile and Cingular and have at the most 2 bars! veerizon also needs to offer more features that T-Mobile and Cingular phones offer! I suggest you get a tri-mode phone for NYC.Was this review helpful to you?
Inside the apartment, I would rate my service poor to terrible. I am lucky to get two bars. The calls are dropped constantly. Conversations are choppy. I would be grateful to hear from anyone in my area who is happy with their cell phone service. I would like very much to change carriers. Thanks.Was this review helpful to you?
Decent in apartment. Sitting about 15 feet from window. Sound quality is fair, with occassioinal pops and cracks.Was this review helpful to you?
Singal is good in this area(indoor / outdoor). But when I get into Penn. Station the signal is unpredictable.Was this review helpful to you?
Since the merger of Cingular and AT&T my calls drop consistently every minute / seconds and reception is lousy. I did not experience any if these problems with AT&T.Was this review helpful to you?
Paid $500 for state of the art phone, locked in for a year (or two? God I forget... ) and the thing doesn't work AT ALL in my office. Every other cell phone I've ever seen works fine in my office (it's made of glass) except the T-Mobile phones. Run, don't walk: run, somewhere else. I have a great phone, which (as noted elsewhere in comments) works better on deserted islands 5000 miles away from home, than it does in midtown Manhattan. Ridiculous. Somebody -- anybody -- should be fired. IT in NYCWas this review helpful to you?
Minimum 4 bars standing right in the front window and in the back garden. Everywhere else in the apt (first floor of 3 story brownstone) get 1, maybe two bars with constant break-up. Switched to Cingular, bought the same series phone (blackberry 7100) and the reception is exactly the same. Very poor. Otherwise the reception on both plans is great: outside, office buildings etc. Weird. I get better reception on a deserted beach in southern Yucatan than I do in my kitchen. Sister-in-law has Verizon which works fine in my apt. If only they had better phones.Was this review helpful to you?
The moment I enter the building, the signal is unpredicable. Calls are dropped frequently.Was this review helpful to you?
Lose signal all the time - call quality is terrible.Was this review helpful to you?
"Can you hear me now?"... HUH? "Can you hear me now?"... click! Phones near Penn Station show perfect signal strength with full bars, but Verizon drops calls consistently after a few seconds. Same (worse) with a Samsung SCH-a310, Motorola V60, etc. It's not the phones, it's the Verizon network. The signal falls to one bar at random. It seems Verizon's antenna nearby does not have anywhere near enough circuits to handle the volume near Penn Station, hence strong signals and dropped calls. The commercials are 100% on target, all you can ever say on a Verizon phone around here is, "Can you hear me now?"Was this review helpful to you?
