Its common to get only 1 bar or no bars in my home. Can only use my phone on 1st or 2nd floor. The basement is impossible. Often the phone rings and when I go to pick it up the call is gone. The ironic part is that in every other city in which I travel my reception is good to excellent. I will have to be hard on Verizon though. In my view, they need to change their slogan. It's definitely not America's Most Reliable Network if you live in Milwaukee.

Tired of trying to make call with AT&T and getting "circuits busy, try again later" this happens all the time to me and I'm in a big city. I've called numerous times to complain - after all my cell was purchased for emergency calls - no good if I can't even get the call out! AT&T was never like this in the past, I too started out with AT&T which inturn was Cingular and now back to AT&T. I can't get satisfaction with this group - looking elsewhere for a dependable service.

No reception in basement, 2-3 bars in side home. Sometimes it goes randomly on and off of reception, my phone says searching for service even on a sunny day in the middle of the road outside. My friends US Celluar has full bars even in my basement. Im switching today.

No issues with EDGE coverage. In two years of daily cell phone use, there have been 0 dropped calls at our apartment. We have only experienced issues with static for a few consecutive days during an apparent tower outage.

Occasionally I get one bar but usually not enough to make or receive a call. 3G picks up but switches quickly to edge. I had poor service in this area with US Cellular too, but this seems worse. Too bad, only way to get an iPhone.

Living in an area where Nextel was the worst, I was suprised when I moved to Milwaukee that wherever I went in town, I had perfect recption and not a dropped call. I still keep my Verizon line for when I go up north... but not bad at all.

For being the best coverage in the nation, I was very dissapointed moving to Milwaukee where even outdoors on both my phones I only have one bar of voice coverage. I was so dissapointed I went and got Nextels, and now I have coverage all over town (never less that 3 bars)

Is anyone else having problems with Sprint near the lower east side? every so often (monthly?) we get "signal faded, drop call" after about 40 seconds. SO FRUSTRATING! I have tried turning the phone off, taking the battery out, and visited the Sprint store many times to update our software. And it is not our apartment because it works except for these times. It is so frustating. If you are having problems or know of the problem, please let me know!
