I just moved to the Dallas area from Seattle, WA (Sept 13). I am on a Verizon contract. I have found the cell coverage with Verizon in Dallas to be frustrating. I now know why so many folks walk outside to make phone calls! I cannot get any reception inside my house (Highland Park) and minimal at my office (Irving). I cannot send text messages from my office. I did find strong Verizon signals in zip code 75093. Will need to find an alternative since I can't run the business with spotty cell service... .Was this review helpful to you?
I got descent data reception until around 2:30 9 / 19 / 13. it's now 9 / 20 still no data. I've been working at this location since 1 / 31 / 2011 and had not great but descent data recption. now nothing works that needs the data reception.Was this review helpful to you?
Network traffic is so bad that calls do not ring through to the phone. I only know that I have missed a call when my voice mail notification goes off. Called 5 times because a credit for overcharging was not being issued. Five clerks told me they were processing it and then it was never done so I think upper management was overriding them. I paid early termination fee to get out of contract. My monthly bill was $113 for unlimited talk text and data. Went with Straight Talk (AT&T) and pay $45 per month.Was this review helpful to you?
Just put iphone 4s with Metro PCS (t-mobile)and reception is terrible. The bars jump all over the place, mostly stay on 1 to 3 and then lose service. A lot of the time it shows no service I drove all around this area and coverage is the same; poor.Was this review helpful to you?
I live in LA and get great reception everywhere I travel with Verizon. I get virtually no service in Dallas. Very frustrating.Was this review helpful to you?
Moved here from Tennessee. I get 4-bars reception here in the building but the T-Mobile signal drops to no bars very regular during the day. So when I am on a call, the call gets drop and the T-Mobile phone shows "Searching". This is bad new T-Mobile. I do not know why T-Mobile is working so well in Europe but so bad over here!I wish I can find a better serviceWas this review helpful to you?
Coverage on campus is terrible. Often when inside a building, there will be 0-1 bars, making it difficult to place a call or send a text but nearly impossible to use 3g data. Most areas outdoors have poor-average coverage.Was this review helpful to you?
Signal strength has been getting progressively worse. I cannot use my cell phone inside my home. Outside signal strength is only marginally better. This is a newer, heavily populated development.Was this review helpful to you?
My wife just got on Verizon yesterday. Generally getting 1-3 bars in the house, but she's experiencing poor call quality and garbled conversations. Where as I have ATT and a FULL signal all the time and excellent call quality, no garbled voices EVER. Weird. I assumed Verizon would be as good as ATT. Not at all. Not here at least. Buyer beware!Was this review helpful to you?
Terrible call quality throughout downtown Dallas and also Mesquite (even with four bars). Routinely will not connect on outgoing calls (with four bars). Will ring endlessly or get a message saying the contact is unavailable. I will immediately use a landline and connect instantly with the contact. The data (3G) is extremely slow and texts are routinely received late (45 minutes or more after the text is sent) or not at all by the contacts. I never experienced these problems with Verizon which I used in the same areas. I was not happy with Verizon's pricing structure but I may have to go back.Was this review helpful to you?
