Phone never rings unless it is held near a front window. Battery only lasts approx 2-3 hrs because it is always "hunting". Phone is basically useless when I am at home!

Good reception but rarely LTE! You should really include what KIND of reception. Yes, I have NEVER have a problem making a call on Verizon in Silicon Valley areas I've been in (many)... BUT, unlike AT&T where I could surf and call at the same time, here I can do only one or the other. It truly sucks. I miss AT&T. Now I have to tell the person I am talking to that I need to call them back because I want to surf the web, get map directions, send an email, or send them a pic I just took. What a disappointment!

I used Verizon years ago: nothing special, but very expensive. Tried AT&T: spotty coverage, if at all. Tried T-mobile: it won't work in half of my house (like AT&T) so missed and dropped calls are frequent. I just tried Boost (Sprint piggyback): 3G / 4G comes and goes, Wifi is fine but can't make solid phone calls-might as well be in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I can't hold a conversation with the store where I bought it, 6 blocks away. Is there any service that can handle this area without paying an arm and a leg. Texting? I don't know, but it took me a week to get an email from the East Bay via an iphone. Yes, I make and take phone calls, text rarely and email often... if I ever find a affordable and decent service for this black hole of an area. Until then, I make calls outside and use my CPU for business. I'm not keeping Boost, that's for sure.

I can hear people well, they cannot hear me. I have either 1 or 2 bars. A couple of years ago I used to have a great reception, obviously something changed. I contacted AT&T back in September and they told me that they were aware of a tower issue and they were working on it. No improvement so, I tried them again today, and now they want me to spend $20 per month plus the cost of the Microcell to fix the problem. Sounds like a great business to be in :)

T-Mobile reception is very poor. Carriers should put some cell towers in this area.
