I have experienced bad call reception / cutting in and out, dropped calls for many years now with Cricket. This was same sim card but on 4 different brands of android smart phones. I'm about to change to Verizon but am not enthused after reading some reviews here. Usually, to have a decent phone conversation I have to drive my car up the block to the Lamar Middle School parking lot. I'm so frustrated, I'm also considering paying for a separate land line again. Amazingly, it's more than halfway through 2021 and consumers are still having to deal with this crap.

I don’t have dropped calls, but data is clunky. Tried T-Mobile and it seems no better, maybe a little worse.

I have had Verizon for 14 years and never had such terrible signal. I just moved over here and have virtually no cellular data and very limited signal to make calls and send SMS messages. Several time before moving here, while driving on Red River I’ve completely lost all signal to my phone. This area is like a black hole for cell signal.

I have had Verizon for years, but my service has become so inconsistent I’m going to have to switch. They claim that I am simply deprioritized at times, but it is so frequent that I am paying to only be able to use my device 50% of the time. I truelly believe that they keep adding users but have not increased their bandwidth and created multiple unlimited tiers last year to make more money while creating a system where they do not have to invest in additional infrastructure

Never had reception so bad, but I moved to this neighborhood a week ago and I can barely catch any reception in my apartment and have dropped calls constantly. Even outside of the apartment I have noticed there is no reception in nearby restaurants or cafes.

Lived in Austin a year and half and have never had more than 2 bars with AT&T. Not sure why the reception is so bad in a major city. I've had AT&T for 13 years and only have had an issue in Austin. Never an issue in Tennessee or North Carolina

One bar most of the time. Periodically no service at all. All hours of day and night. Seems to be getting worse.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Mopac at 360, Steck, Parmer, Etc. | On Ramp Mopac Northbound Near Duval, Austin, TX 78731 |

I commute from Northwest Hills to approximately I-35 at Parmer. If I start a conversation in my driveway, it never fails to drop 4 times on my route. It seems to be getting worse every month or so. More frequent cutting out and altogether dropped calls. I feel like I am talking on my 1996 StarTac flip phone (with 1996 cell coverage) instead of a modern iPhone.

Have constant dropped calls and seldom more than one bar signal strength. Horrible service! Reviews suggest other carriers are little if any better. What to do??
