Horrible ATT signal, tried with many phones, it doesn't matter the signal is horrible, it drop drops and drops. So just drop ATT phones in GLover park. No Action from ATT for over 2 years.

Signal comes in and out. Usually 1 bar if it's a good day. A few blocks closer to the metro, Fairfax Dr., the signal is very good.

Frequently dropped calls and limited reception inside, poor reception outside. Complained to Verizon about the poor reception and they sent a team to investigate and determined that this is a marginally covered area. Customer rep offered to sell a network extender to me for $49 to extend the service in attempt to resolve the issue. I mean, how does extending poor signals from from outside help with the limited reception i'm getting inside?

I work in Foggy Bottom and have found very good reception in DC. I regularly have 4-5 bars and my data service runs at full 3G speed. The only exception is the Metro, where calls drop in the tunnels and data service often falls back to RTT.

It is so frustrating to have to go outside to make a phone call. Switched to Verizon when they were the only ones that worked on the metro. Sprint worked better in my home.

Sprint's coverage is horrible. I drop calls, data is slow, and I cant' hear anyone! This phone is going back and I am getting Verizon. I heard they are great here. Coming from AT&T, I will be VERY happy!

AT&T is lucky they had the iphone for so long. I am switching the first chance I can to either Sprint or Verizon. Never thought I would change, but 3G service is so unreliable that it has become a liability to have my phone due to dropped calls and no calls coming in. Terrible, do not get AT&T if you are looking for new service

I have Verizon. The only place I don't get reception is in the tunnels of the Metro (the stations are fine) and at some bigger stores, such as Target. I live in Fairfax County and work in NW DC. Too bad Verizon doesn't believe in selling cutting edge phones.

Great so I am one of the larger population densities in the US, so I should get great reception right. No horrible reception in my house and I am 1.5 miles from I-66! So for almost 8 months I have battled with Verizon for help, finally after 6 months they gave me a new Verizon phone without losing my Alltel plan that I originally had. New phone has not proved any better. I have to walk 50 ft. from my house for reception. Verizon keeps telling me they are updating and would be done January 2010..nope still bad signal! I am about to get ready to boycot cellphones! Can the manufactors develop phones with better reception instead of just gadgets? Also can the cell providers update there technology? Canada as well as many other countries are ahead of us in technology! Maybe we should get the money Obama asked for to improve the infrastructure!

I have a company blackberry on ATT and the call quality is deplorable and it continously drops calls ulike my personal Nokia with T-Mobile which provides exceptional call quality and coverage in DC. I have spoke to ATT on numerous occasions but they are unwilling to acknowledge there is an issue if I had the choice I would dump ATT and in a flash
