AT&T Wireless (GSM)
Used to have great reception with AT&T. Since Cingular took over, I have noticed a steady decline in reception. Calls drop very frequently now, and I never used to drop them berfore. I used to be able to make calls within my house; now I have no signal. Time to switch carriers. Cingular is pretty bad.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is very sketchy. Sometimes you're good, sometimes you're not.Was this review helpful to you?
Cingular is working very well here. I've tried them all, and Verizon is probably the best, but Cingular is a close 2nd. It seems that Long Beach is a bit spotty in coverage with Sprint and ATT, although not unusable - sometimes one house over or across the street makes the difference.Was this review helpful to you?
I've had T-Mobile for over a year and have been satisfied both with the coverage and the customer service. Much better than what I got from ATT. There is a dead spot in Signal Hill and you can't always get a signal if you're anchored off Catalina away from Avalon. Aside from good call quality, the T-Zone service is very good. I can even send and receive emails via my ISP's email accounts anywhere in their service area.Was this review helpful to you?
When driving over Signal Hill, the Verizon signal drops about 75% I the time going soutbound on Cherry. Once you get to the bottom of Signal Hill the reception is fantastic due to a Tower being right there in the abandoned LBUSD Campus before you get to PCH.Was this review helpful to you?
Service sucks - dropped calls daily from home - no improvement by going outdoors. This happened after upgrading - old Samsung phone worked betterWas this review helpful to you?
In the Los Angeles South Bay in general, Verizon does not have problems getting a signal. I have noticed problems whne in basements of large structures such as the first level at the Del Amo Mall (Burlington Coat Factory, JC Penney. No problems anywhere elseWas this review helpful to you?
Calls drop constantly in my house. Also have lots of call switching going on (ie I dial a number and get some totally unrelated person, while the person I am calling gets a call from someone they dont know at the same time!).Was this review helpful to you?
I can use my phone in the basement of our building. Very happy we didn't buy T-Mobile.Was this review helpful to you?
I had AT&T and switched over to T-Mobile. T-Mobile has the absolute worst reception in this area. The V300 phone is great as far as clarity and features but useless with a poor provider. I went with some cheap Verizon Nokias and have full bars-consistently. Phone features and sound isnt the greatest with Verizon however the reception has been flawless.Was this review helpful to you?
