I recently changed from AT&T to Sprint when the iPhone 5 came out. That was the worst choice I could have made. Sprint has the worst reception I have experienced in years! I have absolutely no reception at home and everyone is always telling me that they called but there are no missed calls on my phone. Any building I go in is pretty much one bar worthy. As for the Internet, it's extremely slow and so not worth their "unlimited Internet" advertisement. Unless you live in Texas, it's not even worth getting Sprint!Was this review helpful to you?
Service with T-Mobile is an absolute nightmare. Reception is almost non-existent in or outside of my home. I can't even get a single bar to make an emergency call to my family. I would actually consider it a success if I'm able to obtain a single bar at all. I literally need to spend up to ten minutes moving from room to room, inside to outside, front yard to back yard, etc to get enough signal strength for the" emergency calls only" sign to go away long enough to place a call. And conversations need to be quick because the call is dropped in less than a minute. Im very unsatisfied with tmobile's wireless service. If you live in this area of long beach, I would look into another provider.Was this review helpful to you?
I've had Sprint for about 8 years now and for the most part they've been a good company for me, including customer service (especially at 6 am in the morning). I live in a very large complex in this area. I've never gotten good reception within the complex, but I've noticed the past 3 weeks reception within this whole area has been poor to none. My calls are now dropping and I practically have to drive more than a mile away in any direction to even make, let lone receive a call. I've also notice that voice messages and text aren't coming through until hours later. Not sure what's going on, but my contract is up in Nov and if I don't see any improvements, I may need to switch carriers.Was this review helpful to you?
I Work at Harbor UCLA, phone coverage has been really good anywhere in the hospital except in the basement. It works in the elevators as well. Data is another story, Pandora works good using the regular quality setting but tends to pause at times using the high quality setting. I haven't been successful watching videos from you-tube or Facebook, they only work for a few seconds then they pause and take a long time to load. One good thing though, I've always been able to get a data signal; although, its just not fast enough to handle the higher bit rates in audio and video streaming.Was this review helpful to you?
Harbor Pines is an absolute dead zone for AT&T. I am constantly dropping calls in my home, on my way to work, and even at work in Palos Verdes. I was convinced it was my iPhone 4 even *with a case* so I tried out my buddy's Droid with no improvement. It pained me to pay an early termination fee so much that I even bought a $99 Microcell tower at the AT&T store to "improve" my reception with no luck and returned it. My 2 year contract is almost up and I'm changing carriers ASAP. The good news is that there are at least 2 other big carriers in the area that provide my neighbors with excellent coverage. Wish I knew that before I signed the contract before moving in.Was this review helpful to you?
The ATT map is a lie, I had to install a Microcell to get my multiple Iphones to work at all, and even then, ATT should have paid for the Microcell for their rotten service, but refused.Was this review helpful to you?

Very spotty worst area I know of very frustrating!Was this review helpful to you?
This is awful. I just got back from Europe where the cell phone reception is awesome, even in the boondocks. In the middle of an urban area, my major carrier lost me. How is this possible? I can't navigate using Google Maps or MapQuest anymore because I'm sick of losing my data service. Does anyone know of a good navigation solution that uses maps that you download to your phone, that don't depend on sketchy cell reception?!Was this review helpful to you?
No problems with reception or dropped calls. Love AT&T -- their customer service is the best! They speak english and are sooo helpful! The only time I have bad reception is when I go to my granpda's house near Clark and Wardlow. Then I have to walk outside in order to make a call. Other than that, I have no problems or issues with AT&T.Was this review helpful to you?
