Wherever I go I have good signalWas this review helpful to you?
Just completed a Field Test after visit to AT&T store where they installed a new SIM card hoping that would solve my problems. Range on test is 50-120 dB with 50 being "full service" and 120 being "dead zone". I moved throughout my 3 bedroom condo and readings ranged from 113-118 dB (pretty damn dead). That might explain why I get "searching" and "no service" when I try to use the internet or my phone. Probably also explains why safari fails to connect, phone calls are dropped and phone freezes.Was this review helpful to you?
I am writing this review to shine some new light on "America's Most Reliable Network". Since some reviews on this website are outdated, let this review serve as a bit of an update. I took a holiday to Fort Lauderdale, and I had a horrible experience using Verizon and my mobile network. When I first arrived and my plane landed, I had only two bars and I was still on the taxi way. I was able to receive text messages, but my social media took its sweet old time loading. I end up going downstairs to baggage claim, and I was a bit lost and was trying to make a call but I had one bar of LTE and my calls kept failing. I eventually left the airport (Fort Lauderdale Hollywood) and was on my way to my hotel. There was only three bars outside, and everything loaded adequately. Well we pull into the garage and there's no service at all. Even in the lobby, I had no service. My cousins had AT&T and had four bars at this point. We arrive into our room and I had one, or two bars of LTE that was painfully slow. Basically there was horrible cell service (at least for Verizon). The next day we were driving near Central Beach which is a major tourist area, we were outside and I only had two bars. My cell service was particularly slow here (I blame tethering). Then coming back home, I'm on the departures level of the airport and I only have one bar, I look in front of me and the nice man has an iPhone 6 with four bars of T-Mobile LTE. Verizon is horrible in Fort Lauderdale and I am definitely fed up with everything about the network.Was this review helpful to you?
It was cheaper then ATT but I'd rather pay to have better signal.Was this review helpful to you?
At home, I live on the 10th floor with lots of windows, I can hear the other caller but they can't hear me. Driving around the cell service in not to bad. But very frustrating when you can't make a call from you home.Was this review helpful to you?
I have bought a Network Extender, and also had Sim Card replaced. Opened a Ticket with tech support, which never was answered. Even had the rep on the phone witnessing the dropped call and dead spots in the conversation. NOTHING done about it. With 2 bars I can hear the other party, they cannot hear me with Choppy Calls..fading. there is a conflict It has been so annoying and has gotten worse within the past year. It flips from 4G to 1X constantly. I have been with them over 30 years and coming to the point that I am ready to switch cell companies.Was this review helpful to you?
Most of my calls drop which is really annoying especially when its job related. Sometimes I have a "No Service" and the most I get is 2 bars around my house (open areas, big windows). When driving around I never get the full bars 3-4 the most.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon is aware that we have limited service available but has no plans to rectify the issue. One bar outside my house, 0 bars inside. Can't conduct business calls while at my PC. Need to maintain landline. Can't understand how one of the top 10 cities in the US can't get cell coverage from one of the top carriersWas this review helpful to you?
Tried T-Mobile cell booster and still really poor signal. Time to switch carriers.Was this review helpful to you?
There is almost no reception either inside or outside of our home. Phone calls sometimes come through but often the cell signal is so weak that incoming or outgoing calls are impossible. T-Mobile is not recommended for North LauderdaleWas this review helpful to you?
