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.

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.

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.

Decent reception with AT&T in East Poway. I average 2-3 bars.

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 Luck

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.

Bars range from 1 to 4 in my house whether I move or not. Calls to family on the weekends are ALWAYS dropped. So much for free weekends. I'm going to try to get out of my contract!
