Next to the big ATT building. I can't make calls and calls or text never make it to me. Switching as fast as I can.

We've been at this location for more than 3 years and never had a problem with signal strength and call quality until recently. Our problem (on both phones / lines) is that the first call doesn't always have audio when dialing and connecting. The call would go through but you can't hear the other person; you can't hear the dialing tone either. It's not a dropped call but a connected call without sound. So we'd have to hang up and redial and always, the second time it's fine. We've been having this issue for more than 2 months now and am considering leaving TMobile once our contract expires.

I've always been a fan of Verizon, but lately their service has been awful. My wife always wanted an iPhone but I kept telling her that AT&T service was worthless. Boy am I wrong in this case. We both get 1 bar in our apartment, and 3G is slow (300kbps if I'm lucky). Calls are always getting dropped, or not received. It's really frustrating. Our friends with iPhones on AT&T get great reception and really fast 3G service. Those dumb Verizon commercials are starting to irritate me.

I have no service in my apt, which is on the top of hill off Piedmont Ave. Additionally, down the street I have no service in office building near hospitals. Dropped calls almost daily, or just missed all together. Data always works well though, even when have spotty coverage.

this is a dead zone no matter what phone you have and ATT wont let you out of your contract report them to the public utility commission and you should know that there are SEVERAL class action law suits against them in several states for not letting folks out of their contracts

Almost never get a 3G connection, and calls are consistently of poor quality and dropping all over the place.

Luckily, I have a landline. It's useless to use my cell in my house. I actually live closer to Broadway. Reception is better if I go to the Broadway end of the house and non-existente at the Harrison end of the house. I have to use the phone outside on the top floor in the most westerly part of the building to have any type of serious conversation.

Glad I didn't cancel my land line... ... I don't want to repeat all the frustrating comments about AT&T and iPhone that you can read above / below but it's the worst mobile phone experience I had in my life - I definitely will try a different model and carrier

We have a family plan and in one of the cell phones there is no reception at all. In my second line if I'm lucky and if I stay in the good spot then I have 1 bar. I live in Berkeley downtown and thinking to switch to any other company because I'm sick of ATT, but I have to pay early termination fee. ATT is horrible I also have internet issues with them, well if you could my recommendation is avoid it.
