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.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
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!Was this review helpful to you?
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.)Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?

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.Was this review helpful to you?
Only time I had a problem was when I temporarily lost the antennae to my phone. Other than that, flawless.Was this review helpful to you?
