I get 0 bars inside my apartment (2nd floor). Outside, I get 5 bars immediately. Other than inside my apartment, I've had excellent signal. That said, my iphone toting friend is frequently dropped off the network while we were walking and driving in the University City area!Was this review helpful to you?
Never had a problem in or around this area. Have had Sprint for several years and very surprised when I hear people talk smack about Sprint coverage yet I'm the one looking things up on my smartphone while my iPhone praising friends comment in disgust, "urgh. AT&T is so slow". I would have to say Sprint is just as good as Verizon in the Philly area.Was this review helpful to you?
I have had very positive experiences with T mobile. I hear Verizon is good, as well. It's AT&T I am worried about. I was considering switching to the iphone, but with still so many complaints about service and dropped calls, I am hesitant. When I asked AT&T customer service about it, they said they have good coveraget in my area and are always improving. That wasn't specific enough for me. For now, I am sticking with T moble- their customer service is excellent and international service is also the most reasonable for periodic travel.Was this review helpful to you?
Maybe I'm lucky but I get five bars in the corner of my apartment. No dropped calls and pretty clear reception. I didn't sign up for the 3G plan though because it's apparently still not very good. Will wait until they develop that later this summer. No complaints thus far...Was this review helpful to you?
At&t in my area is perfection, in and out of my house I get all bars of service I never dropped a call and the volume on my phone is perfect. AT&T I think is better then any other compnayWas this review helpful to you?
While I usually have 5 bars, I have rated the reception poor because of the poor call quality I receive at this location. It is my office, which is pretty high up in the Cira Centre. While my phone almost always shows full strength signal, it is very difficult to reliably make or receive calls. On many calls, the voice breaks up and at other times, I have trouble getting a call to go through. Most problems seem to be correlated with lunch time and the 4 pm - 6 pm. Definitely frustrating to not be able to reliably use my cell phone at the office.Was this review helpful to you?
VZW is slightly weak in this area, but even though I'm only showing 2 bars the quality is great and never lose reception outside. When inside some buildings the signal becomes iffy. (0-1 bar). Inside a residence though, I see a slight improvement (bar wise) to 2 bars. But again the sound quality is equal to when my phone has full bars. So, overall no complaints except for high prices!Was this review helpful to you?
Overall Verizon IS the best. However, this particualr area is a weak spot on VZW's coverage area. Good reception outside and iffy signal inside, but even so rarely drop a call and call quality better than 5 bars with AT&T.Was this review helpful to you?
Great outdoor reception, Both 3G and 1X. Indoor reception depending on the building drops down to 1 bar but typically I'm able to hold onto the call even in the oldest of buildings all around the city.Was this review helpful to you?
I constantly get the message "Emergency Calls only" when I'm in the house because the reception is so bad. The call quality is horrible too and I often have to walk outside for the other party to hear. I moved here from Ohio and had Cellular One coverage before they were bought out by AT&T. The day my service was taken over by AT&T, my service suffered and it seems to still suffer in Lansdowne.Was this review helpful to you?
