5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | 7th-16th St. | Glendale Ave / Lincoln, Phoenix, AZ 85014 |

For all of 2005-2010, this area was a total dead zone. After recent upgrades, it now has 5 solid consistant bars regardless. 4G LTE data speed regularly are very acceptable. Depending on traffic volumes, I'm consistantly getting speed of 50mbps OVER A CELLULAR CONNECTION! Not even COX can deliver that in this area!

On 24th Street, a verified DEAD ZONE FROM MCDOWELL TO HIGHLAND 1-2 BARS in this entire zip code, Go south and devices are useless. Go North closer to Camelback to Glendale Ave., and 5 bars with unparalleled 4G LTE SPEEDS automagically kick in at record breaking speeds! No other carrier including Verizon can match it's speed in the Camelback corridor. HANDS DOWN! Save issues with many upgraded devices over 7 years.

Loved Verizon when I lived in Ohio, 4-5 bars and 4g lte everywhere, moved to Arizona and now 1-2 bars and 3G. Coverage map shows I should have great signal, but that's not true. Also can't seem to get any help from them but still forced to pay a hefty bill. Thanks a lot Verizon.

Verizon is TERRIBLE in the Phoenix area. I'm lucky to get 3G.when talking with Verizon they said they had "pockets" of slow spots all over Phoenix. I'm like really??? the 6th biggest city in the USA and you can't provide coverage. Just sad that my warehouse guy in the back can search for the video I'm trying to play, find it, and play before mine even starts. he has T-Mobile as I will VERY soon.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Biltmore Area | 24th and Camelback, Phoenix, AZ 85016 |

The strongest carrier hands down or up in this whole area, zip codes 85013 through 85018 is AT&T. We do extensive daily tests comparing Verizon,AT&T,T-Mobile and Sprint. AT&T consistantly has the most signal dots 4-5, even if it dips down to2-3, data speeds and robust reliability are unaffected as far as quality usage goes. Verizon is average,T-Mobile occasionally will drop the rare call indoors,but data excels at unmatched speeds. By far the superior carrier in this entire county is AT&T.2. is T-Mobile,then Verizon with Sprint being a dead in the water with only 3G.

We moved to this area and could not make a call. Had to hook up a land line to make / receive calls. Called Verizon to complain and dropped call six times within 5 minutes of talking to customer support. Verizon tech asked for home number so that we could a least talk without being dropped. After customer support verified that between 4 Verizon cell phones we had over 400 dropped calls in a single month. Verizon said they could send us a booster to improve our signal. Only catch was we would have to pay$ 250.00 for the booster. After talking back and forth with tech. support they agreed to send out booster free of charge. good thing we have internet cause that is the only way it works. if I disconnect booster from Router we can't even call 9-1-1. If you live in this area please hook up a land line so you can make / receive calls... . I wish the " Can you hear me now guy" would come to my neighborhood.

I've been with T-Mobile for 5 months and couldn't be happier. No problems what -so -ever! No dropped calls and no bad reception! I told one of their representatives that I love T-Mobile! And I meant it!

I only average 2 bars at my house. Dropped calls and inability to place calls are the norm. Constantly unable to send texts. Anywhere else in Phoenix I only average 2-3 bars. The lte is slow.

Only have 3 bars and sometime 2 bars in my home. Calls are not clear and sometimes are dropped. Often very difficult to understand what is being said.

Verizon has better coverage than any other carrier in Phoenix because Verizon bought Alltel and the combined coverage can't be matched by the others. Also, Verizon has the only 800mhz signal, which travels further than the 1900mhz signal that all the others use in Phoenix. If you can't afford Verizon, look into Page Plus, which uses Verizon`s network.

I'm actually with Virgin Mobile but I understand it is run by Sprint. I always have 3 bars where ever I go. The Data sucks. I hate the internet. Overall it's great for the price. $40 a month with 1200 mins and UnLtd texts and data.
