Have had Verizon for years in other parts of Milwaukee with happy results. Moved to Riverwest this month and can only get a signal once in a while.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Oakland and Edgewood | Oakland and Capital Is the Major St., Milwaukee, WI 53211 |

Excellent service everywhere. Buy a phone(UPrepaid), take it home, CHECK SIGNAL STRENGTH and then pay for the service. I had Virgin (1-2 out of 5 bars)Uses Sprint towers Boost(1-2 out of 5 bars)uses Sprint Towers I had Verizon from 1998-2007 has 3-4 out of 5 bars but clarity was not good. I still have the phones and checked signal strength today. I had a USCell contract from 2007-2009.The overage charges were the final straw. Then switched to prepaid. I now have UPrepaid (4of 5 bars everywhere!)from Walmart is a reseller of USCellular The flip phone is crystal clear. $30 for 1,000 min. $40 unlimited talk text and too much internet for a flip phone. $50 android unlimited But, limited phone options so far.The service started this summer.

Verizon coverage is excellent in this area. I get 5 / 5 bars in my house, and even 4 bars in the basement. Data is strong and consistent. I have not had a dropped call or quality issues in the area.

I was lured to Sprint from AT&T 8 months ago by the prospect of Unlimited 4g data... . Boy, was I duped. A 4G network is nowhere to be found in the Milwaukee area and Sprint has no current plans for a 4G network. In the meantime your 3G connection will be painfully slow as Sprint shares its network with Boost, Virgin Mobile, Assurance Wireless, Netzero... what a scam!

Very poor reception inside buildings in the area. Terrible data speeds in the entire metro-Milwaukee area, even when next to Sprint towers. Very few problems with dropped calls, despite poor reception, however if you plan to view web pages or utilize any sort of a data connection, do yourself a favor and choose another carrier; The cheap price and lure of "Unlimited" data are tempting, but it's not worth it when it takes you 1-2 minutes to load a webpage, and frequent connection errors.

Terrible reception on my street. Within 3 blocks of my home reception drops off a cliff. Goes from hovering around -80dbm down to -120 dbm on my block.

Within wood building I receive very poor reception; 1 bar of "Edge" service. Outside I can pull 1 or 2 bars of 3G but the data is very slow.

I left US Cellular for Verizon this past year. It was a big mistake! I have to move to the kitchen of my home to make calls. Even there I am lucky to have a phone call not drop. Even moving outside into the driveway its about a 50 / 50 shot that I wont drop a call. Pretty sad! My opinion is if you live in the Glendale area of Milwaukee, do not even consider Verizon as a mobile phone carrier. For the profits that these companies make its a joke that you cant make a phone call every where in one of america's largest cities.
