I was a prior T-Mobile customer here in Long Beach and never got the 3G / 4G coverage that I was promised, so I decided to switch to Verizon since all my research indicated Verizon wireless had the best DATA NETWORK in the US. None of the carriers seem to have any huge issues with dropped calls in the Long Beach area, so that wasn't my concern. I only wanted a true 4G experience from a high end smartphone and I thought switching to Verizon was going to be worth the sacrifice, NOT. I am a first time Verizon customer (Droid RAZR) and from the start, the 4G coverage is spotty in every area of Long Beach. If I go to other Metropolitan areas (Washington, DC etc) it appears the data connectivity is superb but in Long Beach it is horrible. Verizon claims this issue will be resolved with the ICE CREAM SANDWICH 4.0.4 UPDATE which still has not happened... .still waiting. This is just my opinion, but I strongly believe that the city of Long Beach is considered a "ghetto" area, subsequently the cell phone companies don't want to upgrade our towers and spend money in the community. A few extra towers and some extra data capacity would go a long way to making Verizon the best cell phone company in California and make me a life long customer.

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?!

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.

AT&T indoor coverage is horrible on the 15200 South Budlong Ave, I only get one bar in doors and most of the calls are missed calls. I need to get another provider, AT&T is not good for this new townhouse development. DO NOT get AT&T if you live near 15200 South Budlong Ave Gardena,CA 90247. I would suggest to go with T Mobile or Verizon. I also get 3G sometimes and the data is really slow, when ever I call customer service for AT&T they always say the tower is down, but in reality the tower is really far away and can't provide signal to this part of Gardena.

ATT has horrible coverage near the Gardena Memorial Hospital, I know for a fact most of the First Responders will not carry ATT Phones, they all have T-Mobile Phones, because there are multiple T-Mobile Towers in the area. There is no in door coverage of ATT inside the Gardena Memorial Hospital. I would say anyone in gardena should get T-Mobile. There is a T-Mobile tower at Redondo Beach Blvd / South Budlong Ave in the city of Gardena 90247. Also ATT Data is slow with only the EDGE Network, No 3G Coverage. Also Dropped Calls with ATT, its horrible especially if you are on a emergency call.

Bad reception and frequent dropped calls. Made many complaints but AT&T has done nothing, not even offered their micro tower.
