I started way back when they had the brick phones and LA Cellular and you were lucky to have any kind of reception. I've tried all the major players and this is my conclusion. Overall, Motorola has developed, in my opinion, the best technology and durability in regards to the phones themselves. Because of my work I bought the i580 when it first came out since my last phone fell from 20 feet up and pretty much disintigrated. Short of running this i580 over with my truck, I'm very happy with its ability to survive the beating I've given it. Best investment I ever made. I had Nextel for many years, tried to find someone to beat them but ended up coming back to them now for the last 3 years. Every provider will have their dead spots, poor reception or drop calls, it can't be avoided. Being that I work indoors, outdoors and sometimes remote locations I had to find a descent provider. I have to admit, I was nervous when Sprint bought out Nextel, but so far service is, in a worse case scenario the same if not a little better. I also get a 25% discount on my service as well as any accessories because I work in the entertainment industry. Check for discounts, they do make a difference. You can check their website and see if the company you work for qualifies for any type of discount. I live in a huge complex and Nextel / Sprint is the only provider I get clear reception from. I've had friends with other providers and their reception has always been weaker or doesn't work at all. I have no affiliation with Nextel / Sprint, I just think their doing a great job with adding new technology with their phones and towers. I would say before switching, find a friend who has one, get their opinion, see if you can use their phone at your place or areas you have trouble with your current provider and see what happens. Cell phone technology isn't perfect, but for me, Nextel / Sprint has come closest to what I expect for the money I'm being charged. Free unlimited incoming calls and free unlimited PTT, (something huge in my business) doesn't hurt either. =) I don't think you'll ever find a "5", but, I gave them a "5" rating because they've beat everyone else out on performance, so far. You pay a little more for them, but if I can stay connected 95% of the time I'm using my phone, its worth it. Just my 2 cents. I hope this helps others out.Was this review helpful to you?
I second another comment posted about this part of Encino. The minute you begin to go south of Ventura on Hayvenhurst, reception gets progressively worse until you hit Lanai and Hayvenhurst Dr, where it just drops completely. I must mention that it's no better with Verizon or T-Mobile. For some reason, this heavily populated area (which is less than a mile from the heavily commercial Encino / Ventura Bl business district) is one big dead zone.Was this review helpful to you?
Veizon is the best for this area. T-Mobile sucked! also ATT did too. Verizon costs more but when u need service- verizon.Was this review helpful to you?

Verizon Wireless is very good in almost every area of SCV that I travel.Was this review helpful to you?
Over past 5yrs i've had Verizon in the 91306 area code, the 91342 and the 91356 area codes. Also had 3 phone during that time and never had any problem. I only wish they had unlimited after 7pm or some other gimmick like rollover. thinking of switching for first time for better minutes.Was this review helpful to you?
