Spotty reception with 1 - 2 bars if you're lucky! With my phone placed in the one spot it can usually hold a signal and with my headset on so I don't move the phone I can use my phone in the house. Move and the call fails. Surprise! Oh and you have to put up with signal quality coming and going because apparently AT&T's cell strength is as good as their DSL speed guarantee... (HA - Liars.) There's NO service from Fairfax to Labrea on Hollywood. NO service around the intersection of Fairfax and Sunset. My contract is up and I'm praying that in the new year Apple will announce they're opening up the phone to other carriers. The MINUTE they do, I'm GONE from AT&T. They suck, they misrepresent everything they are able to provide and get us to pay them for shoddy service all the time. It's not just the cell service! They deserve to go out of business.

I cannot use my phone in my apartment without the call dropping EVERY time. If I go outside, I can manage to complete a call, but reception is horrible and I'm constantly having to ask people to repeat themselves. This RIDICULOUS! I really want to upgrade to an iPhone, and the only thing stopping me is this seriously sub-par service. When will AT&T and Apple get a clue? I would think that Los Angeles would be considered an important client base.

Woo Hoo! Ported my number over from AT&T to Verizon Wireless and Best Buy gave me my Motorola Droid EARLY! I LOVE THIS PHONE! And know what's better? I can KEEP a call with out it dropping! Also, my data speeds are FAST! I am so happy to be gone from AT&T. I would really look into Verizon and the Motorola Droid or the Droid Eris by HTC. Sprint wasn't even this good when I had them before my iPhone 3G. THANK YOU VERIZON! You have a GREAT network!

i live in the hollywood hills in a house with one small spot where I can get reception. only reason I have AT&T is due to owning an iphone; but will switch the minute another carrier is added. may even switch phones if I learn that AT&T will maintain exclusivity. I can often drive a miles from labrea and franklin all the way to sunset and fairfax without getting reception. yet I can be in the mountains of california, an area without a dense population, and have perfect reception. AT&T is horrible and APPLE should do right by their loyal customers and eliminate the exclusivity and bring on Verizon or another carrier. if AT&T cant figure out how to bring good coverage to a heavily populated city like los angeles, they dont deserve apples exclusivity on such a popular phone like the iphone. if they lose the exclusivity, watch AT&T stock tumble and fall; just the wake up call they need!

I had more dropped calls with AT&T in the first 3 months I was with them than the entire year and a half I was with T-Mobile! The WORST service ever... the only reason most people have them is for the I-Phone. I have ONE spot in my entire apartment that I can make a call! HORRIBLE... and the pricing is outrageous compared to the other companies. I wish I had done my research before switching! A lesson learned.

AT&T was the ABSOLUTE worse service in West Hollywood. It too got no reception in my house, and I couldn't even drive down Sunset (west-bound) and have a conversation on the phone without multiple disconnections. The service was sooooo bad that I recently switched back to Sprint and picked up a Palm Pre. Being a Mac freak myself, I was really expecting a downgrade as far as phones go. You know what, the Pre is awesome. There are some things I miss about the iPhone, but there are an equal number of things I like more about the Pre. Ohhhh... reception. I have it now; in my house, on the road, no problems! Not only is the coverage WAY better, but my monthly cost is less. AT&T was awesome in other places I've been to (New Jersey, Las Vegas, SF Valley, San Diego), but as far as my hood goes, it SUX!

Very spotty cell reception since leaving Verizon in favor of "Jesus Phone". 3G network is hardly up to the task of handling nationwide iPhone / internet usage.

Great reception. Great coverage all over the Miracle Mile and most of LA. Very few dead spots. Much better than the comments I hear about AT&T... especially the iPhone.

I'm in the Larchmont Village area. Years ago I had Verizon. Worked great then started dropping all calls. Switched to Cingular and never had a problem. Now Cingular is ATT and have only one spot in my house I can keep a call from dropping and that's if I can get reception to call out. Since I would like to get rid of my land line, Don't know who I should move to.
