4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | K St. | 13th, Takoma Park, MD 20912 |

I live just outside DC, ride the metro and bus, work downtown. Have rarely had dropped calls, except in one of the metro lines, but mostly I have been able to use the phone while on the metro, even in tunnels. So I don't get the dropped calls said to be so frequent. What bothers me is the quality of the call. Often I can't hear well if there is any noise. I don't like talking for an extended period of time on the cell and prefer my lanline at home.

I live in Gelmarc Towers. I can receive calls but soon after answering I lose the signal. Also, walking up Columbia rd towards 18th street the signal is always sketchy. It is impossible to carry out a conversation. This part of DC is dead zone for ATT service. I have the issue on multiple cell phones.

Terrible phone reception in this area. Data is especially bad. I'm sitting right by a window and still nothing.

To the person who posted earlier today, 10 / 01 / 11, please call Sprint to let them know. I also have called. This has been happening since Tuesday. Check out the "network and coverage" section of the Sprint online discussion forum. (This board won't let me post links.) I have roughly mapped out what I determined to be the affected area. I can go outside the affected zone and bring a call back in with no trouble, though.

Decent reception walking around on the street, but poor both at work and at home. Phone will show show four or five bars of reception, then drop to zero. Fair number of dropped calls. Often, I can't even connect to call my voice mail.

Despite 3 bars present, I couldn't call, just sent messages. Neither could I phone of my boss

Lived there for a year and could only have conversations when sitting in my window, and even then calls dropped constantly. Miserable. Moved 1 / 4 mile away and it's perfect.

sometimes just 2 bars calls dropped often or I have to stay in one specific spot to maintain the call. Verizon has been good for service in other parts of the country (Washington State, for example) but very disappointing in DC so far. I am rethinking my contract and won't renew if service is still so poor.

I only get reception with Verizon if I am above ground and outdoors. Downtown my coverage will drop if I am near to many tall buildings. Most of the time friends and family call or text and I don't get their messages until 2 or 3 days later. Horrible service.
