Reception is awful. Sometimes it works. Often I am bounced off the 3G network. Sometimes I show 5 bars and still have dropped calls, especially in high traffic times. Having dropped calls is the norm, not the exception. The mapping function on the iPhone - which runs through AT&T towers - shows me at the correct address 50% of the time, shows me a couple of miles away on Capitol Hill 30% of the time, and 20% of the time it "thinks" that I am at the District boundary on Southern Avenue, Southeast which is miles away!

3G service here is absolutely horrible. At lunch time, I can't get a phone signal half of the time, and I street is a massive 3G hole. On top of this, no lunch spots around here offer WiFi, which is a scandal. I'm ready to boycott every lunch spot without WiFi and start brown bagging it.

I work on the 7th floor on 12th st. in downtown DC and I get no bars. My Blackberry doesn't even pull my email. I have never had this happen anywhere else in DC with Verizon, but if I can't even get my email in an office building two blocks off Pennsylvania avenue, that's a problem.

Whenever I come out of the South Exit of the Dupont Circle Metro Station and keep doing down 19th St, I get no reception at all from T Mobile.

Calls dropped intermittently - not sure if it is the new building that blocked it..

90 percent of calls dropped in and outside around my house. Perfect reception everywhere else in the city. Verizon told me that it could not possibly be a problem with their network and that my phone is to blame. They sent me a replacement phone which is just as bad. Oddly, I get "1x - 2 bars" which should be fine, but the calls keep dropping anyway.

There is no cell signal inside AMC Georgetown, Landmark E St. Cinema, and very poor signal at Regal Gallery Place on AT&T's network.
