Most calls don't go through; when they do almost always dropped.

LOL! I get the 'no net coverage' and the beautiful phone symbol with a red line through it. Voice mails are received seconds after realizing I have a missed called that went straight to voice mail. My sisters states that they try calling me and it go straight to voice mail. Or something I get magical voice mails that don't have a missed call log. My phone isn't dead, I just have no service. I was told I have a strong area signal when I complained about the issue. Yeah so strong, that when I stick my phone out the window in my bedroom I get no service. I get bounced back text messages. Frustrating because I had to take my number off my resume while I'm job hunting and must use a landline. AT&T will not change because they haven't got any complaints of missed calls in the area. My contract is almost up, I have no problem walking away, I've had them since 2005. I've canceled both my former landline and internet service with them because of their lack of wireless service. They pretty much told me that their signal is essentially comparable to a radio signal and I'm not guaranteed 100% coverage. But can I at least get 50% coverage from my strong area signal?

I used to have Verizon -- coverage was fine everywhere except in my home, which is also where I work, so basically 90% of the time I had no coverage. I complained many times but they were not able to do anything. I switched to AT&T and my problems are gone. Reception is good where I live and work (most important), but also good elsewhere. I've used my phone abroad also with no problems. My only issue now is that I want a new Droid 2 and AT&T doesn't carry them -- I'm hesitant to switch back to Verizon because it was soooo bad, so I think I might have to stick with a Blackberry. I hate it that carriers don't all carry the same phones.

We just moved into the neighborhood from Tennessee. We've updated our address and PRLs on our phones to coincide with the area. Still, reception is horrible at best. Constant cut-outs and eventual dropped signal every time I try to make or receive a call, and that is only when we stand right next to the window of our house. This is extremely inconvenient. When I walk around the surrounding neighborhood, I constantly overhear people on their phones complaining about service in this neighborhood, which is just down the hill from Downtown Oakland one mile from a Sprint store...

3G network never show up in this area. In the past 3 weeks, even no reception of phone. The call keeps dropping, even standing on the street. DO NOT use AT&T if you live in this area.

Things were okay until AT&T started replacing almost all of their Edge towers with 3G towers. My phone is too old to use with 3G. Additionally, just about everyone I know on AT&T has HORRIBLE reception near the ballpark and in SOMA.

When I leave the phone alone, I got 2 - 3 bars. Signal is intermitten, but then when I browse the net I got 1 bar and the speed take forever. Signal is fake. I was thinking about adding another line for my wife and upgrade to the Evo 3D but this won't happen at all. Luckily I discover this issue. For those want to go for Sprint shound take a look at this before deciding.

Last several month, reception on this area went very bad. 4 out of 5 calls over 5 minutes talk, calls drop in the middle. What's worse is even with 2 bars up, phone doesn't ring and voice msg pops up hours later. I'm missing a lot of in-comming call without me knowing at all. Calling out is just like waiting at deli counter holding the number ticket. After pushing call button, you have to wait 20-30 sec. then finally it starts ringing or sometimes, "Call Failed" shows up. Once customer service said that a lot of people are using cell phone around me so lines are congested, but AT&T will KINDLY credit for that call (and I guess I should thank for such a kindly response ?) Hell I don't need your few cents back. I'm paying $100 every month for my phone because I need to Communicate RIGHT NOW otherwise I will send a post card.
