We started with AT&T when the iPhone came out -- and it just gets worse and worse. Dropped calls ALL the time -- which they tried to blame on Apple. AT&T is NOT a good carrier for Milwaukee... or really anywhere. So frustrating!Was this review helpful to you?
This has been going on for 2 years and I am so tired of it. it will be addressed... . or we are adding new towers every day. well I invite Verizon to put a booster in my yard because I have 4 phones and the signal sucks at times. so bad I can't even make a call. right now I hardly have a signal. 200.00 bucks a month with you and bad signal almost always. if I stand on one foot while leaning on my mail box its better.i am just so frustrateted. and were I work which is very close to the freeway it is also bad.Was this review helpful to you?
No towers close enough. Had to add an IP booster in the home for cells to work properly.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
Nice phone, horrible service, deceptive sales staff regarding actual coverage. They promised me national service on Verizon towers, and I required that kind of coverage as an over-the-road trucker. When at home the service was okay, consistently 1-2 bars of signal. There were a lot of calls that ended up garbled or with a really bad feedback echo. I would be forced to use the speakerphone function or Bluetooth headset and set the phone down, since the weak signal required the phone remain stationary, and I liked to pace when on the phone (old habit). When it was time to go to work, however, I discovered a serious problem with their service. It seems that US Cellular is NOT the national carrier they claimed to be, they would later admit they are a regional carrier operating primarily in the upper midwest, and they sell excess bandwidth for Verizon. As a result, when they do an over-the-air update, you must be in your home area to get the update. On two such updates, I wasn't home, I was at work, so I din't get the updates. As a result, on both occasions my phone could only make calls through Verizon, who I had to provide a credit card number to in order to make very short, and very expensive but necessary phone calls. I ended up going 38 days out of the first 45 days I had the phones without actual service, costing me hundreds of dollars. I asked to be able to return the phones and to get my money back that I paid for the devices, and to have my contract cancelled. Their response to the request was to put me into collections once they received the phones back. Like I said, nice phones, but this company qualifies as the worst I had ever done business with.Was this review helpful to you?
I originally had T-Mobile, an when my contract ended I switched to Simple Mobile, which uses T-Mobile towers exclusively. I was also an over-the-road trucker, so for me consistent coverage is just as important as a large coverage area. I've never been disappointed with coverage, availability of service, or call quality with either T-Mobile or Simple Mobile. Most of the dropped calls I experience happen when in a call with another cell phone user. The rest occur when I am on the edge of the signal coverage, or near a building or other structure emitting a lot of RF interference. I do not use the phone for data very often, but when I do it works about how I expect it to. The main data usage is to check and clear emails, and to use Google Maps to find out how to get from point A to point B when my GPS decides to play dumb. I bought the phone and paid for service primarily for what a phone is for, making and receiving calls. So long as that works the way it does now, I'm a happy camper.Was this review helpful to you?
