for 2 years i've had decent reception throughout the house, better than AT&T at the time I signed up. now that the ahsby cell tower is down I cannot use this as a business phone anymore. I am working on getting out of my contract without paying the fee as they are the ones in breach of contract.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon on this end of the island is spotty at best. At home I might get reception in the house, but stepping outside doesn't even mean i've got something good enough to complete a call -- and it's not just my phone, several friends have similar problems when visiting.Was this review helpful to you?
I get no reception at my house... only if I put my phone on the window ceil. When I go to work at south shore..... 5 bars baby!Was this review helpful to you?
bad reception that hasn't improved in at least the last 5 yearsWas this review helpful to you?
Verizon is easily the worst service provider I've ever used. I need to go outside and walk halfway down the block in order to reliably make a call. And that call will be dropped within five minutes. And most of the five minutes will be taken up with "can you hear me now" and "can you say that again". I have contacted Verizon, and they sent one of their tech people down here with some sort of signal detector, and they agree: it sucks. In fact, it sucks so badly they have let me out of my contract and I am changing (don't know to which provider yet, that's why I'm here) without the early termination fee. If you have any intention of using your phone in Berkeley, make sure you are NOT using Verizon. If you already have Verizon, call them and make them let you out of your contract.Was this review helpful to you?
T-mobile reception has gotten increasingly worse over the last few months. Reception has always been spotty at Southshore, but now the reception over the entire island has gotten worse.Was this review helpful to you?
No problems whatsoever... getting antsy and want to switch (verizon phones aren't that great), but all the reviews of bad service with other providers are scaring me to stay with the boring Verizon phones.Was this review helpful to you?
Gets between 1-3 bars. Almost all calls longer than 5min get dropped, indoors or outside. Generally poor reception in Berkeley and along I-80. Excellent in SF and south bay though. T-Mobile informed me a year ago new towers were going up in my area, but I've seen no change, and now that my contract's up I'll cancel.Was this review helpful to you?
5 / 5 at most outdoor places. At least 2 / 5 or 3 / 5 in most classrooms. With its CDMA technology, the sound quality is perfect.Was this review helpful to you?
Seems like I'm talking to a garbled misfit every other call... Any solutions?Was this review helpful to you?
