I am unable to get a good signal of more than 1 or 2 bars in my home, a low rise condo. There are also areas nearby such as Naylor Rd. and Alabama Ave. SE, that there is complete loss of signal for at least 2 to 3 miles. I have called the service provider numerous times. The response was that there are no towers there. When asked what I should do since I am unable to use my phone in a large part of the neighborhood, I was told to consider another provider by a customer service agent. After speaking with her manager, I was told that the previous answer was unacceptable, offered several free months of service, and promised to be notified when the towers were put up. It has been over 3 months and no improvement. I guess the customers in areas of Anacostia are dispensible.Was this review helpful to you?
Nextel service sucks in WDC in general. Many dead spots or worse yet, great reception one minute, then non the next from the same spot. I have many dropped calls. Service in Brookland, NE Rhode Island Ave., NE Michigan Ave. really sucks. I miss my Verizon phone.Was this review helpful to you?
I never had a problem in DC or Arlington (Wilson Blvd. and Washington Blvd.). I get great reception in the house on all floors including the basement, great coverage at work (downtown) in the building on the 3rd floor, and great coverage in the Metro. I wouldn't trade it for any other service in DC.Was this review helpful to you?
My Nextel service stinks. I am sick and tired of the decending quality of service. Nothing but garbled direct connect and no service on my screen. I think Verizon is the only option.Was this review helpful to you?

I have a very basic LG model. At first I was frustrated until I saw hw many problems my friends who have AT&T have. Sprint is above average throughout most of DC, No signal in Metro except Union Station. I am switching to a higher performance phone hoping to improve the signal clarity.Was this review helpful to you?
I love T-Mobile plans but the reception sucks in my house. I live upstairs and still have to move around saying 'Can you hear me now?'Was this review helpful to you?
