I get good reception in and around my house. Good voice connectivity and no dropped calls. However the 3g speeds are laughable. On a typically weekday night, I'll have 4-5 bars of reception, yet the 3g speeds will be 50-100k. It's barely enough to stream pandora (and still skips sometimes) I think because its because the closest Sprint Cell tower on 39th st that all Sprint users in the area connect to is oversubscribed. Voice always has priority, so that's why the voice calls are good, but the 3g / internet service is barely usable. I called Sprint and asked them to bolster that cell tower but the guy said its not on their "list" to get upgraded. I need to find a way to get them to upgrade it / add more capacity. One other thing, very early in the morning, I am able to get 1.1megabits over Sprint 3g, but that's only because not many people are using and saturating the network at that time.Was this review helpful to you?
Just switched to Verizon last week. It's perfect so far. I can get calls in my bedroom where I've never (with Sprint or AT&T over the last eight years) gotten reception. I can drive up and down Marlborough without dropping calls for the first time. If you live in Kensington, I recommend Verizon.Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T has had horrible reception for the four years I have had my iPhone. Switched to Verizon las week and couldn't be happier. If you live / work in Kensington, don't go near AT&T. I love Verizon so far.Was this review helpful to you?
I have dropped calls in and outside my house almost daily. I am so fed up with AT&T. I have called countless times and used their app to submit poor reception reports over a hundred time and no response except that they will update when changes are made. It has been over a year with no improvement. There coverage map shows "best" service in this area. What a crock of lies.Was this review helpful to you?
I barely had cell service until I got a Working MicroCell. Without the MicroCell I have constant dropped calls and failed data transfers. I bought the MicroCell from AT&T 18 months ago. The first one was a complete failure. They finally exchanged it after wasting my time for 17 weeks at the end of 2010 / beginning of 2011 (multiple service calls over 45 minutes long). I will say they did not seem to mind talking on the phone but nothing improved until I got a replacement MicroCell with a firmware update. Now service is more reliable but range is only about 30 feet. I will switch when my contract ends. Good LuckWas this review helpful to you?
Reception rating is deceptive. The signal is 'strong' but the service is terrible. Since last summer, I have been having problems with my Verizon service, and it keeps getting worse. My calls keep getting dropped (I am currently on hold with for Verizon Tech Support for the 3rd time this afternoon: 1st call got dropped; 2nd call went from Hold to busy signal). I do not receive certain calls (from people on my Family Plan, in particular); cannot reach them back when I see that I have missed calls because the phone hasn't rung (and they hear nothing, either); and voice messages arrive a day late. The tower my calls get routed through does not report dropped calls to Verizon if they drop after connecting. Verizon doesn't even pretend they're going to do anything about it.Was this review helpful to you?

I get 5-6 bars of Sprint service in my home and since there is always a strong 3g signal, it kind of makes up for the lack of 4g (WiMax) in San Diego.Was this review helpful to you?
I have bad service since July 27 2011, AT&T are unable to help, apple says no problem with the device. AT&T suggested that I survey people around me to see if its just my phone or others are having the same issue. They also recommended that I turn off my wi-fi and only turn it on when I need it. AT&T sucks it is time to change!Was this review helpful to you?
Sporadic connection between 1 bar and no-service. Total dead spot here. Mira Mesa Blvd.and Camino Santa Fe is a 5 bars perfect and 3G is active.Was this review helpful to you?
