Can't get reception in house unless I'm in one spot in the bedroom. If I move, I either break up or drop calls. Can't seem to locate any tower near by. Also, unable to connect computer on high speed internet very well using wireless device through Verizon.

Very bad reception. I must be near a window or outside. Notice many neighbors with the same issues. Seriously considering another carrier. Verizon or Sprint. Wonder who has better coverage out here.

This phone is awful as well as the recption if you buy this phone use it for a paper weight. Recption is awful indoors and just ok outside. I do not recommend LG phones period just because of this one product. Inferior products from an inferior maker. ATT should be called A Terrible Telecom - those bars should be for those crooks who claim they work. I'm not joking, I am really not satisfied with these guys.

No reception at work, spotty reception at home (best case)... .consistently dropping calls at both locations... .ATT&T is much much worse than Verizon, only switch because Verizon never gets the good blackberry's, cant wait for the thunder so I can ditch ATT

Too many dropped calls, I have a hard time connecting. I went to Verizon with the problem, they upgraded my software - it seems a little better but still not very good. Will another provider be any better?

The reception is terrible most of the time. I resorted to leaving the phone in the window where occasionally one bar would show up. Messages would alarm hours or days after the incoming calls or texts were made. By the way, the phone would never ring.

I generally have good coverage from Sprint, so I wasn't expecting such a lack of coverage in downtown Oakland. Many calls couldn't be completed or were dropped. Sprint's map shows this as a high-quality reception area. Judging from other comments I've read here, this is a long-standing problem. It's disgraceful that Sprint hasn't fixed this. And the City of Oakland should be complaining about being relegated to third-class service when it's trying to redevelop it's downtown.

Reception with Verizon for the last few years--very good in most parts of Berkeley. Previously had Cingular, was much worse. I'm at the foot of the No. Berkeley hills. Would like to leave Verizon since it's so union-hostile, but don't want to deal with the bad reception again...
