1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Manchaca | Larchmont Dr. (nr Lamar), Austin, TX 78704 |

Fluctuating 0 to 2 bars at my house, phone does not ring reliably, don't get messages until I call out. Brand new phone, have tried 3 in the last month. About 10 calls to customer support and 2 trips to the store. Support says there is no problem even though I am less than 1 / 3 mile from the nearest tower.

Inside apartment (1st floor of 2 story bldg) or driving / walking anywhere around the neighborhood, the signal is consistently strong.

Not impressed with the reception. No dropped calls yet but often staticy.

Sitting inside my condo my phone reception will randomly switch from 5 bars to no service and back again. I have dropped calls every day. I had Cingular before and also had the same problems. When I first got the iPhone it seemed to be better, but I think it was a fluke. It is astounding that reception can be this unreliable so near the heart of the city.

Reception isn't a problem in south austin, but I work out in dripping springs and there is zero reception out there (but, to be fair, the cricket map shows that this area gets no coverage)

Never a dropped call. Always clear. Great data speeds. No complaints or problems with Verizon in this area.

3 to 5 bars at all times but it is rare to have a conversation for more than 1 minute that does not require a re-dial. I have used a French cell phone in the Paris underground metro many times and have never lost a call - and I mean never. I don't understand why the cell service in Austin is so poor!

AT&T reception is really bad in most parts of Austin.

Sprint claims there's coverage, but there is none. If I'm anywhere near my apartment, I can't get calls or, if by some miracle a call comes in, it typically doesn't last any more than 5 minutes, if that, before the signal gets dropped. If it weren't for the stupid 2yr contract, I'd cancel immediately.
