0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | 21st St. Jester Dorm, Austin, TX 78705 |

I just dropped off my daughter at Jester Dorm at Univ of Texas. AT&T has no coverage in a dorm with 3000 students! I was in the lobby and outside trying to call my daughter's cell and I had four bars (as did she) and no calls went through. You dial the number and you just get silence. I asked the receptionist in the dorm and she said it was long standing problem. This is crazy in many ways including the fact that I was staying on campus in the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center! This is one of the largest dorms in the US and there are no land line phones in the dorm rooms. How can AT&T not put up a tower nearby to fix this mess. Same problem with text messaging by the way.

I just moved to this location. Indoors, that is inside my house, I get essentially no reception. I can occasionally get a EV-DO network readout (with no bars), and I can get a ring through, but not enough signal conduct a full phone call or to keep the call from dropping 50% of the time. Outside, I get 1 bar, which is usually enough to finish a phone call. Ultimately, I will have to switch networks.

For being boost, it works really well, had it for a month, and only one dropped calls. I can hear the other party that I am talking to almost crystal clear. For being prepaid / 50 a month it is amazing. Draw backs are internet is super slow and text messaging always "downloads" the message and is A LOT slower than any other carrier I have had.

I have enough reception to answer a call, but it is immediately dropped. Data reception is intermittent.

Super fast 3G coverage everywhere in the area (though I do have trouble getting service in a few buildings on the UT campus-especially underground).

0 - 2 bars tops. Frequently calls drop and incoming goes straight to voice mail. Sometimes have to go stand in front yard to talk. If carriers were not so secretive about tower locations, you could figure out what the problem was - ie phone, terrain, buildings or what.

AT&T used to be good in this area, but now is dropping calls almost every time I drive down Windsor at MoPac and is very poor in my office (Windsor and Exposition).

For the most part, I have service, ranging from 1 to 5 bars, but also there are times when I get Searching... It's survivable but I can't wait for the MicroCell to become available nationally.
