Phone Service varies from NO SERVICE to 3 bars in the house. Outside varies from 1 bar to 3 bars. Frequent dropped calls when answering. If I find a good spot I do not move from it from the duration of the call. Similar to having the old wired home phone. I frequently call back on the land line. AT&T suggests I spend several hundred dollars for a "tower in my home" - what am I paying them $$ for wireless and data service for? iPhone 3G shows 3G, but responds slowly - often drops to Edge. I usually just use it on my wireless network. My contract with AT&T is up in 2 months and I am shopping around.Was this review helpful to you?
I've been thru several phones at Verizon. No matter which phone you get, if you're in a radio wave dead area, nothing much helps except a signal extender. As explained to me, the tower transmitters are "aimed" in a direction to give as much cell coverage to the most people possible. If you're in an area that doesn't have an transmitter pointed your way, you're out of luck until they either build another tower or re-aim the transmitters. They have it figured out which way works best for most of the people and the others just have to suffer thru lousy reception. I get either one bar or no bars, and have to stand near the sliding glass door to get decent reception without intermittent swatches of conversation. I also have the person I'm talking to call me on the hardline house phone. Verizon doesn't plan to re-direct transmitters for a couple years and there's been too much controversy over putting in cell towers... even those that look like trees. Folks who happen to get good reception are happy... .those of us who don't have very few options. Clearwire may solve some of this, but it's too soon to tell.Was this review helpful to you?
I recently switch my 2 lines from AT&T and my Wife from Sprint over to Verizon. The service with Verizon is so much better then it was with AT&T and Sprint. We have not had a dropped call yet and the service is strong. The 3G data is very fast. No problems with Verizon. We are very happy with the service and customer service.Was this review helpful to you?
Never have a problem with reception at home or at work. I am one of the few that has no problems connecting at the office. Sprint has been great.Was this review helpful to you?

Very bad reception Nextel was good in till they joined with SprintWas this review helpful to you?
Often calls sound like they are being made under water. Calls are constantly dropped. AT&T should be forced to stop making best coverage claims in their ads.Was this review helpful to you?
In July of 2008, we jettisoned Sprint for AT&T and the iPhone. After eight years, Sprint finally had improved their local coverage, but they were too late to satisfy us -- we were tired of the terrible phone hardware options. On AT&T, indoor reception fluctuates between 4-5 bars here (we're between Laguna Blvd. and Elk Grove Blvd., one mile west of Bruceville Road). Initially, the local iPhone / AT&T combo was marginal at best. But Apple and AT&T quickly upgraded the iPhone 3G software and tweaked the local towers and for the most part, it's been smooth sailing ever since. As with Sprint, the local AT&T 3G network occasionally gets overloaded -- and incoming calls roll directly to voicemail rather than ring. And when traveling, we have encountered several metro areas not serviced by AT&T 3G. But the iPhone more than makes up for much of AT&T's network. It really is a joy to use. The iPhone has turned out to be a terrific cell phone AND a versatile handheld computer and gaming machine. There is no other cellular product like the iPhone.Was this review helpful to you?
