I live this area last couple of years. Verizon coverage is really poor in my area. Calls dropped, and I lost many calls, reception and talking is really terrible. This areas seems to no Verizon cell towers within a couple of miles also.Was this review helpful to you?
My iPhone came early! I picked it up yesterday at USPS. My service is great with Verizon. Sprint roams on them in my house, T-Mobile and AT&T have zip-1 bar and Metro has nothing. To the person below, maybe it is your house or phone. They also make 3G Network Extenders. I haven't had any problems tho.Was this review helpful to you?
I've lived here for 6 months and I get absolutely NO reception in my home / office. I also cannot get my messages because if you don't have reception, you don't get the voice mail either, at least not with Verizon Wireless. I have called them several times and get NO Satisfaction. I am waiting for my contract to run out and then switching. I am paying way too much for service that I receive only when I'm not at home and a minimum of 2 miles from my house, in Los Angeles CA. I hesitate to upgrade to the iphone because I will not be able to to use it anyway. I would love to hear from someone in my area who has reception.Was this review helpful to you?
I used to get 3 bars in my home with my Samsung freeform metro PCS phone, now I get no reception what so ever. I have to get into my car and drive several blocks away to even get my voicemail messages, let alone make a phone call. The phone drops calls constantly. Beware!Was this review helpful to you?
I've had Sprint for many years, mostly because I have a low priced plan that they don't offer anymore. But I have had it. The reception is pretty bad in this area and I could barely make calls at home, if I could get any bars at all, it's choppy, and then it always drops the call. The most awful thing was when I needed to call 911 and COULD NOT GET THROUGH.Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T... horrible. Live up in Beachwood Canyon (Right under the Hollywood Sign). I have never been able to make a phone call in my house. I mean NEVER. I'm able to make a call when I drive down Beachwood Dr. reaching Franklin Blvd. What was it again? "at&t nation's fastest network". Looking around for something new.Was this review helpful to you?
I can't believe I've stayed with ATT this long considering the poor reception I get. I don't think Sprint works well so I'm on the hunt for something else. ATT also doesn't have very good phones.Was this review helpful to you?
I get pretty decent reception with Sprint / Virgin Mobile at my home. Sometimes a little bit of fading and an occasional dropped call. Had AT&T prior to switching to Sprint / Virgin Mobile. AT&T does not work in this part of the neighborhood despite what their maps say. I was never able to use my AT&T cell phone here. Terrible reception, constant fading, dropped calls, when someone would try to call, call would go directly to voicemail, when trying to make a call bars would drop to zero and call would not connect. AT&T is pretty much useless here. A couple of my neighbors have Verizon which appear to work in this neighborhood too.Was this review helpful to you?
When I first got my Nextel phone, the reception up here in the hills was substandard, but so was every other carrier's, if I remember correctly. And the Nextel phone had the strange ability to get reception in basements and concrete buildings while other phones dropped calls. So I was ok with the Elysian Heights reception problems. But then Sprint bought Nextel. And Nextel never got improved, maybe even got a little worse, while the other carriers (including regular Sprint) improved their service (except AT&T). So, goodbye Nextel, hello T-Mobile month-to-month. Maybe when Sprint gets the iPhone I'll try them out... .although I should know better!Was this review helpful to you?
I switched from Nextel last week. So far, I have been delighted. Not a single dropped call from my end. I had to buy the smiley phone in order to get a month to month contract. I was determined not to get trapped in a year- long contract for yet another carrier whose reception zone required me to swivel my head and hold exactly so in order to complete a call. When I first got the Smiley phone, I thought - what a cheap piece of crap! Now that I've used it more, I feel a little differently: it's still the Hyundai of cell phones, and it's "OS" is sometimes very illogical, but the keyboard is actually quite usable, belying its diminuitive scale, and the call quality is decent, even when on speakerphone. Maybe I should buy a Hyundai next. I use an iPod Touch as an adjunct device. That works out great - I can look up dictionary app words or stored maps or email while talking on the phone, for instance. And I really don't want web access each and every minute of the day. Continuous web access becomes more of a bodily function than a treat.Was this review helpful to you?
