Since around 1pm on August 1 (3 days ago), signal went from consistently 4 bars to now wildly fluctuating between 0-3. Sprint insisted for 2 days that all towers were working normally in the area. Finally yesterday they told me upgrades were going on at any given time through September 7, 2012 since April of this year. Representative was unable to give me any useful information about work being done to towers specifically near me. Basically, you may not have service for another month or more, tough luck. Service went from very good to almost unusable.

I am amazed at how AT&T is still in business. I am stuck to the phone thanks to their expensive contract cancellation fee but I wonder why people sign up for AT&T in the first place. The place where I live has 1 to no bars from AT&T towers and when I call them, they said everything is great! Their solution was to "buy" a microcell which is itself $199. I asked them to give me one for free which they declined. So I was "forced" to buy one. Two more months and I am done with AT&T.

If I go stand at my back window I can have a conversation. Otherwise people can't hear me.

When we moved in the area in April 2011, the reception seemed alright. I suddenly started seeing reception issues in May 2011 - almost seemed like a tower was decommissioned or something. Ever since, the coverage in the area near Mill Creek community is very poor. I get at most 2 bars sometimes but the quality quality is very poor 95% of the times. Call drops often too. Our building is not even obstructed by other tall buildings or anything. AT&T really needs to address this issue. I can make calls just fine a couple of miles from here.

I've been a customer since before Verizon was called GTE. I always thought Verizon had the best reception but I can no longer say that. It has such poor reception in Fremont, CA that I'm seriously considering switching carriers. Put up more towers or I'm switching!

95% of the time, can't call out or receive call. Have to go outside of the house to make a call. Use call forwarding to the house phone to get incoming cell phone call.
