Terrible coverage. Slow speeds. 3G blows. EDGE is too slow.

Verizon

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | West 49th St. | Ninth Ave., New York, NY 10019 |

It may not be the fanciest handset anymore but not a single dropped call on my Verizon Razr in about 2 years at this location!

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Brooklyn Battery Tunnel | West St., New York, NY 10001 |

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.

AT&T

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | 8th Ave. | 33rd St., New York, NY 10001 |

Shows good reception, but when in a call, it is impossible to hear the other person, and the calls get cut off.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Sheraton Hotel | 5th Floor, New York, NY 10019 |

I go to NY often and stay in the Sheraton Hotel on 7th Ave and 52nd Street. I prefer the lower floors (afraid of heights). I am now in the 7th Ave. side and have terrible phone and data service. I called customer service and they tell me I am 100ft away from a cell tower, so what is up with that? I cant believe AT&T is still on the cellular business.. Verizon is way much better countrywide.

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 55th St. and 9th Ave., New York, NY 10019 |

I live on the ground floor and my building effectively blocks reception inside my apartment (even though service outside on 9th Ave is perfect and the AT&T cell tower is nearby on 811 10th Ave). I have become aware of the concerns and limitations regarding home installed cell repeaters and the expense of large industrial repeaters (and the requirement for carrier approval). Especially in Manhattan, it is not easy for the consumer to take measures to improve cellular reception. At the Web 2.0 Conference in November 2008, Ralph de la Vega CEO of AT&T Mobility, indicated that AT&T will initiate market testing of Femtocell technology in 2009. He also indicated plans to use an enhanced 850 MHz spectrum to improve signal in densely populated areas. These are both important enhancements. In the meantime, I really enjoy my iPhone but the reception is unreliable and I really want to use the iPhone. Verizon is much more immune to signal deterioration in the city.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Midtown West | 56th and 10th, New York, NY 10019 |

Even though our building is 3 blocks from Columbus Circle, I get terrible reception on my iPhone, to the point where I need to stand by the window in our apt to take calls. Overall, I have had a pretty dismal experience, anywhere in NYC, with the AT&T service required of all iPhones. I love the iPhone as a device, but really miss my Verizon service. Guess you can't have your cake and eat it too...

I cant believe how bad AT&T sucks here. I am in the 10th floor and dont get any reception in my office, which located not very far from the window. Verizon has better indoor and tunnel coverage and also in the boroughs. these stupid guys that do the engineering there must go back to school. it was much better last year..

T-Mobile

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | All of Manhattan, New York, NY 10001 |

very poor reception, lots of dropped calls, and many "all circuits busy" messages for me and wife (also on t-mobile). Absolutely frustrating.
