No reception inside office building. BUT! Just switch to roaming only (free!), which accesses Verizon. Full bars. No problemo.

No reception inside work building (roams all day and wears out battery). Also no reception in L'Enfant Plaza unless go into atrium area with skylight above. Great service outside building and in outside downtown DC.

I've gone through two TREO 700wx phones and I still do not have reception inside my house. This is very frustrating because Verizon does not acknowledge this and their only solution is to hard reset my phone and / or replace at my own expense. With each phone replacement it resets my contract and therefore I'm going through lots of money replacing these phones at full price! I have fine reception everywhere else... just not in NE in any home or office building.

T-Mobile

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Bolling AFB | I-295 and Malcom X Blvd., Washington, DC 20032 |

I live on Bolling AFB. We get little to no reception in our home. It drops at least every other call going out or in. I have spoken with T-Mobile with no luck. The first time they said it was a tower problem. Then they said it was a reflection off the water from the river >>eyeroll<< Then they said they are going to put up a new tower and the problem should be resolved in a couple of weeks. Ummm, not even close. Still crappy service. I came here trying to find a good carrier, only to find out they all suck out here. Dang those water reflections... .oy!

I get little to no reception in my house. Friends and family cannot reach me, nor can I call out. I've tried standing outside to talk, but my calls are continually dropped. I've tried trouble shooting with the many Sprint representatives. My phone dropped the calls frequently enough that the Sprint representative had to reach me on my home phone. If you live in this area, avoid Sprint. (It also cuts out on sections of route Rt. 267.)

AT&T

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | All of DC | All of DC, Washington, DC 20002 |

New AT&T EDGE system did not drop out at all during a recent visit all around DC and Arlington. No reception on the Metro while underground, however. Perfect voice. Emails and messages popped in while metro was crossing the bridges.

even though I get 4 to 5 bars of reception showing, I actually can rarely make a call from inside my house. And when I do, I usually have to wait 30 seconds for the phone to find a tower.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Safeway, Capitol Hill | 14th St. SE, Washington, DC 20003 |

While Verizon generally offers excellent coverage around the city (including underground on Metro), my wife and I get one or zero bars inside the Safeway. Calls fail to go through or are dropped.

Only time I had a problem was when I temporarily lost the antennae to my phone. Other than that, flawless.
