Everybody here has to go outside and walk around to try and get reception.Was this review helpful to you?
Only Verizon works in this neighborhood, and it's not as good as it used to be. Other carriers are basically dead here, especially if you want to use it *inside* your home. I did a comparative use test using an unlocked Nokia and alternated chips from Cingular (prior to merger), TMobile and ATT; as I said, Verizon is the only thing you can use inside your home.Was this review helpful to you?
Often lose signal quickly. Goes from three bars to none in seconds. Lose ALL calls within a minute or two. Often miss calls all together. Improved for awhile, but getting bad again.Was this review helpful to you?
Virtually no reception in my house and only 1 or 2 bars in the back corner of my yard.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?
Nextel sucks in this area, 1 bat to no sevice, lots of dropped calls.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?
AT&T's "more bars everywhere" slogan is so untrue here in Bellflower, El Segundo, Carson, and Huntington Beach! When they converted to GSM their reception jumped up a whole 1 / 2 bar! No more AT&T for this sucker... ..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?
