No reception for T-Mobile once you enter the towers... SOMETIMES i'll get a half bar about 10 feet from the entrance. Very poor overall...

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 34 Street / Reno | Macomb St., Washington, DC 20008 |

Coverage barely exists (and sometimes dies) at 33rd Place, rises slightly at 34th / Reno, dies again at 35th. This on a major NW artery!

I used to be an ATT Wireless customer until they merged with Cingular. For the last 2 years, I've had perfect reception in my apartment and around the DC-area. Over 3.5 weeks ago, reception in my apartment dropped along with spotty reception everywhere else, and service has not improved. Cingular has not been helpful only offering an explanation that they're converting old ATT towers -- a process that they don't expect to be completed until November! Plus, they've been less than generous with compensation for a phone that I can't use, not to mention the extra charges that I'm incurring on my home phone. Based on Cingular's refusal to deal with the problem in a customer-friendly way, I do not recommend them.

Lyon Village Apartments are hard on cell phones, which is too bad because of the free high-speed internet in the apartments and garden style layout making this a particularly good place to ditch the land line. Best reception is near windows; residents routinely use the courtyard.

I usually get great reception, but after talking for a little while I will get this horrible static and people usually want to hang up, but I tell them to wait because it goes away after about 5-10 seconds. But then it might happen a few minutes later. It's very annoying. But their customer service is improving and that's important! And it would be nice to get reception in the Metro...

Great reception on 99% of the campus. Verizon, as well as all of the other carriers, do not seem to have reception on the first floor of the Marvin Center. Elsewhere in the DC metro area, Verizon has spectacular coverage. They even have reception in the Metro underground!

The reception in my apartment building is terrible. I constantly only get one or 2 bars if any at all and then when I walk outside and a little ways down the street I have full reception. I need reception in my apartment!

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Pentagon City Mall, Arlington, VA 22201 |

There's almost no signal in the mall... especially not down in the food court. My mom and I couldn't have a conversation ("where are you?") from one end of the mall to the other.
