AT&T service on my iphone drops every phone call inside my house. If I am on a call I always have static. On my Iphone AT&T is always full bars. It is terrible whether I am on edge or 3G. I had a Verizon Blackberry before and had no problems. Come on AT&T it is 2009 and your service blows!

Well here it goes again. No Signal, no service, dropped calls, dialing problems, failed calls. Complained to ATT back in Nov 2007 but nothing was done. They came, they tested, they said everything was okay but we still do not get a signal strong enough to reliably use the cell phone. They say it is okay, no problem, but I live here, I know better. Mysteriously, the signal improved over the last year or so to 3 bars fading in and out but service was workable for a while but not great. Now it is April 2009 and over the last week or two, service has deteriorated severely. No signal, no service, one bar, two bars, three bars fading in and out. Can hardly make a call or carry on a conversation. Called ATT support, made a trouble report. We will see what happens. According to ATT I am in a "lite orange zone" on their cellular service map which indicates moderate but acceptable service. Just 200 feet to the north of my location, their map says it is a "dark orange zone" which should mean 5 bars BUT that is not true. Service is bad through out the Glover Park DC neighborhood. I believe that there is a cell site just 0.5 to 0.6 miles to the East - Southeast of here but it is over the top of a gentle hill from here. The tower faces towards the downtown of DC and leaves out Glover Park, Calvert St. (west) Benton St, Beecher St. (west) 41st St, 42nd St, McArthur Blvd, Foxhall Rd, Reservoir, Sibley Hospital, Georgetown University and the lower portion of New Mexico Ave. NW DC PLEASE fix the service. Put in a stronger signal in the Glover Park Neighborhoods west of Wisconsin Ave and West of Tunlaw Rd.NW DC.

Great service. I did a 30-day trial with T-Mobile and didn't get past 9 days before I sent the phone back. AT&T will have my loyalty for a long time.

I get zero bars inside the house. I must stand at the front window to talk and there is 1 bar. There is no reception at the back window. Never buy AT&T. They are liars and horrible.

Haven't had much problem with the phone at all... anywhere in DC, except in my friend's apartment. It was in the basement though so it was difficult to get reception there anyway.

About half of all calls are dropped. Phone constantly switching between 3G, Edge and 'G' networks. Really awful. Much better in other parts of DC and outside of town.

I just got a new iPhone. The technology is wonderful, but the reception is lousy in my place in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood. Since my primary requirement of a cell phone is to be a phone, I'll likely have to return the iPhone, drop AT&T, and go back to Verizon.
