Just got the iphone 4s in Nov last year. Reception has been great with this phone over what I had with my previous BB. Big caveat here. My home reception stinks so Sprint sent me a an Airave which is hooked into my hi-speed internet. I have had it for 2 years now. Nevertherless I can tell a big difference in reception with my 4s over the BB outside my Airave coverage. The cost of my Sprint plan beats the tar out of any of the other carriers and the iphone and Airave have fixed my reception issues.Was this review helpful to you?
We've been with Verizon for about 7 years now and we've gotten great reception with them almost everywhere we've been including Mexico. Southeast Kansas doesn't have good reception but I'm not sure any carrier has good reception there! I never get dropped calls and I get clear voice transmission as well. Only my daughter uses data or Web and she's never complained about that so I guess it's good too. The biggest problem with Verizon is that they are the most expensive carrier! We're looking to switch to smart phones and it will cost us $220 / month for 3 smart phones! Too much!Was this review helpful to you?
I usually get a 4g signal with my Motorola xoom in my house on the south end of Wichita. However at this end of town 47th and seneca I get dropped occasionally and never get more than 2 out of 4 bars. A few miles north near 31st and Seneca I almost always get 4 full bars on 4g. I'm extremely happy with 4g when out and about in Wichita. I would give an excellent rating if I could get full 4 bars in 4g on the south end where I reside.Was this review helpful to you?
ATT needs a tower on the EAST side of Park City,I get fairly.good reception in the house of 2-3 bars but their tower is on the west side of town by 135 and 61st. Would be much better to get FULL 5 bars!Was this review helpful to you?
I have great difficulty sending texts from my office downtown, especially picture messages. My phone only works half the time (if that) for calls from my desk. I live 4 miles east of downtown in Crown Heights, and I can hardly ever talk on the phone from my bedroom. One of the most frustrating things is that my phone says I have 5 bars, but text messages still won't send and calls still won't go through. This spring my friends and I went to the rodeo in Stafford, KS. AT&T's service completely gave up halfway there, but my friends with Verizon still had full coverage in Stafford.Was this review helpful to you?
3G Performance is spotty at best. I consistently get dropped calls and call failed all day long. Forget about trying to use data in this area. For calls, I even tried 2G and still the quality is poor in this area. People I talk to get intermittent talking from me on 2G. A co-worker had a high level case on this issue, and AT&T denies that anything is wrong.Was this review helpful to you?
I've had the HTC hero with Sprint as a carrier and it drops calls ALL THE TIME. or, the person on the other end says it was ringing and ringing and I didn't pick up (this happens while I am holding the phone) Or, while I am talking, the phone connects over to the incoming call, so in mid sentence I am talking to someone else. This is the worst coverage I have ever had in my life, and every time I complain to Sprint, they tell me that the tower over by WSU is having problems. Its not me, not the phone, its the tower. For 18 months. I'm looking for a new carrier, new phone, new anything-but-sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
Went from 5 bars to 1 once the Alltel merger happened. Had to install a micro cell just to use the phone in the house. Phone works great outside my neighborhood.Was this review helpful to you?
I only get 2-3 bars here in Park City! I wish somebody would put a tower up here in the north part! My calls don't drop but do not sound very good, garbled and echo! Please put a tower near Park City!Was this review helpful to you?
Since Verizon updated the towers in town the other day, I have been having a terrible echo on my phone calls and my 3g speed has deminished greatly. Please fix this verizon.Was this review helpful to you?
