Unless your cheek is pressed up against a window dont expect any signal. Constantly losing signals and dropping calls.

I'm getting terrible reception in my home. Today I can't call out, no one can call in, and I can't even access my own voice mail. AT&T tells me the tower nearest to me is "degraded" and has been for five months! I am seriously thinking of switching to another carrier at this point.

On the 4th floor of this old building I get anywhere between 2 and 5 bars on AT&T's 3G network. Calls do get dropped with some regularity, and some don't go through when I dial. Calls coming in sometimes go straight to voicemail even though I supposedly have reception. And as many others have reported, calls routinely get dropped all around the DC area, including driving on the Beltway. Mind boggling for the nation's capital. If I try to check email or go online, especially during working hours, I often get no actual Internet service regardless of how many bars I have, leaving my apps to just spin and spin while they try to connect. I pay for Internet tethering and it's almost useless here. If I turn the 3G network off the extended ("E") network kicks in and I get 5 bars consistently. At that point I can get Internet services, but it C-R-A-W-L-S. Verizon's service was SO MUCH BETTER. Wishing I hadn't just bought my iPhone three weeks before Verizon announced they would start offering iPhone services...

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!

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.

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

3G service here is absolutely horrible. At lunch time, I can't get a phone signal half of the time, and I street is a massive 3G hole. On top of this, no lunch spots around here offer WiFi, which is a scandal. I'm ready to boycott every lunch spot without WiFi and start brown bagging it.

I work on the 7th floor on 12th st. in downtown DC and I get no bars. My Blackberry doesn't even pull my email. I have never had this happen anywhere else in DC with Verizon, but if I can't even get my email in an office building two blocks off Pennsylvania avenue, that's a problem.

Whenever I come out of the South Exit of the Dupont Circle Metro Station and keep doing down 19th St, I get no reception at all from T Mobile.
