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?
Terrible reception. This building is a wireless nightmare.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?
Per the AT&T coverage map I should have flawless data service. I always have 4 bars but Internet and texting is hit or miss every day that I have owned this phone. Sometimes switching airplane mode on and off allows me to use the data but it is only for a few minutes. I carpool 86 miles each way daily and the entire time I have no problems until I get into the airport area. AT&T service is sad there. 2 towers within a mile of the airport and I can't use data when I want. I wonder what would happen if I gave apples GV jet the same service that they give me.Was this review helpful to you?
2-3 reception bars. Frequent dropped calls, sometimes up to 3 times in a single phone call. I have been with Verizon since 2001 and never had a dropped call, NEVER. I never have a dropped call in my other residence in Palm Springs, NEVER. Only here in this condo. Doesn't help if I go out on the terrace either. Verizon needs another tower. I have heard many people complain about the service in this area. Be careful who you sign up with.Was this review helpful to you?
Receptions is surprisingly good. Transmission via voice, web, and text are all quite good. 3-bars, 3-G, older model phone add up to reliable calls, web access and flawless texting.Was this review helpful to you?

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.Was this review helpful to you?
