The service with everyone's phone (except Verizon for some reason) that comes to our place is super weak! I can go from 4 bars to no bars in 1 minute. There is no reason and no solution for this. I go outside and it helps a bit... but it's so erratic that I try to just call people from work. I bought a cell phone repeater (300 bucks) to try and solve the problem... i placed the antenna in the attic. It helps a little, but it still is so irregular... I just want a CONSTANT signal strength. Can anyone tell me why the signal comes and goes so frequently here?Was this review helpful to you?
TMO has good reception in this residential area. New rooftop cellsite in Naples improved coverage while coming home thru Belmont ShoreWas this review helpful to you?
My Recipients are always complaining of bad reception on my phone. It is mostly when using Bluetooth or the Speaker Phone functions. Also there are an inordinate amount of dropped calls.Was this review helpful to you?
Because of large growth at the Port of Los Angeles NEXTEL service in San Pedro and around the port has become GREAT. Many truckers and port workers use NEXTEL so service went from BAD (a few years ago) to GREAT! Just a couple of weak spots, but not much to complain about.Was this review helpful to you?
verizon always has great reception in my area, and surrounding areas... pretty much everywhere i've taken it... both coasts, north and south. its awesome, even in hawaii. i just hate the company so much it makes my blood boil. they lock ever feature and give you a crappy one they've designed to make them money instead. their phones are terrible, but the coverage and reception is unparalleled.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception goes from 2 bars to no bars through out the neighborhood, with all calls over 2 minutes dropping. Calls frequently go straight to voicemail. T-Mobile insists that this is a "4 bar area" and that there are 4 phone trees in a 2 mile radius, and that they have NO IDEA why there's no service. For the record, I tested my friends' collective cell phone service in my house at a recent dinner party. AT&T and Sprint had 3 bars, Verizon had 4 bars. T-Mobile folk had 1-0. Who is lying to whom? Their suggestion? That I spend $200 bucks on a new "Hotspot at Home" compatible phone and extend my contract two more years piggybacking off of my Verizon wireless DSL modem's signal. Why should I pay twice for the same phone signal?Was this review helpful to you?
I had T-Mobile and their bars would always be full but I would be in the middle of a call and all of a sudden it got dropped. Happened with several different phones so it is the T-Mobile network. I switched to Verzion Wireless and have not have a dropped call yet (over a month now). Reception is great and sound is really good. I may pay $15 more a month but at least I get reliable service. I travel through the east side of Long Beach, Signal Hill, and on the freeway to Manhattan Beach and always have good reception. I am very pleased with my switch to Verizon.Was this review helpful to you?
No cell service indoors, despite being only 100 yards from the freeway. Minimal and often no service outside. Calls in the area often go straight to voicemail. I have t-Mobile now, but have had Nextel, AT&T and Sprint. None are any better.Was this review helpful to you?
I've been happy with Sprint until recently when they merged with Nextel. Signal is fine. Phone is good. Prices okay. But I do not like the web-site and customer service changes since the merger. A new billing system is being phased in. Can you believe that in this age of identity theft, they are asking for pass words and pin numbers over the phone before they will help you? The old system they would ask for last four of Social Security number. I'm very disappointed. Since my contract expires in 7 days, I am checking out Verizon after reading the mostly good comments about them here as opposed to the lousy comments for the other carriers.Was this review helpful to you?
San Pedro is "Cell Hell", but I have the best reception in the San Pedro with T_Mobile. Had to drop Verison years ago for very poor coverage. Cingular went south when they merged with AT&T. T-Mobile keeps me happy, but there someny small and medium "holes" in PedroWas this review helpful to you?
