Still in 2014 such poor coverage is a shame! Shame on you Sprint.

I have had AT&T for 2 years (contract period). I get pretty good service-usually 4 bars. Occasional problem with textx getting stuck. I think AT&T is too expensive, but after reading about other carriers, perhaps I should stay put?

Sprint is the worst As a business person is expect to get LTE in downtown Portland. I've called customer service several times to tell them how I have 1x or no signal. Emails, internet, maps, or any activity is terrible. Was told "towers being upgraded" But wait ! I traveled to San Francisco for business and the Apple campus. I thought to myself "get service here must be great?" But No luck, even in one of the nations most progressive technology cities. Sprint advertises LTE but it's a lie

This area (around Nike's main WHQ campus) is horrible for Verizon's LTE service. Just to get text messages I have to disable LTE and use 3G. This is a very populous area of Beaverton and it's not excusable for the #1 cell phone company to have such spotty data service.

Sprint signal not as advertised on coverage map. Sprint says 4G LTE is best in my area, but at best 2 bars outside with phone pointed at tower on Mt. Tabor 6 blocks away.

I get 1 to 3 bars at home and at the office which is about 3 miles away. Common to have dropped calls or poor quality. Seems to work fine in some areas but not where I use it most.

Verizon is usually very good for me, but in my office, pretty much smack in the middle of Portland, I get horrendous service. We're talking texts that seem to stall and don't send or receive for several minutes, NO data service, though calls seem to work ok. I am very unhappy with this dead zone that I work in. Verizon really needs to boost it's signal in the Lloyd Center area.

Well, I'm using SimpleMobile a T-Mobile mvno... and the signal cuts out about 30% of the time... this being for my wife's new Nexus4 - on my phone which is running on the AT&T owned mvno called aio wireless - no problems at all! Also when she had PagePlus (Verizon mvno) no problems there either!

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Parkrose Area | I205 and Sandy Blvd., Portland, OR 97220 |

AT&T has degraded the 2G network to the point it doesn't work. Kept it hidden until the "upgrade" the 1st of 2014, now trying to blame the customer. had a so called "manager" call me and tell me they updated the towers for the 4G LTE and had to make room. that was taking out the 2G service. so basic phone usage is now GONE in Portland, OR. Lies and misinformation is the AT&T byword now.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Westling Farms, Oregon City (South End Area), Oregon City, OR 97045 |

I got fed up with Verizon's despicable business practices and made the move to T-Mobile. Verizon is the undisputed winner in coverage, but T-Mobile works pretty well in Oregon City. The WPWB729 transmitter appears to be the closest T-Mobile licensed unit to our house and it provides a respectable 2 bars indoors. That written, coverage is non-existent when we drive out to Stafford or Wilsonville or up on Salamo in West Linn. That's a bummer, but not a deal breaker. It works well at our house and where I work in downtown PDX. I'm happy with T-Mobile so far and am glad to have an option to Verizon's despicableness and AT&T's complete lack of service out here.

Terrible! Can't use LTE at all. Even text message is terrible as well. I have to keep turning off LTE and use only 3G so I can get one more bar. It is just as bad in my houe is the same thing. Looking at the good side, I had to downgrade my 6GB plann to a 2GB, because I just can't use data anymore. Terrible service.

So irritated! Makes me so mad to pay so much per month when I use my battery up, walk around in circles, and still lose calls. Not only that, but I wont receive calls, cant get on the internet but they still get my money. They should get paid fir only service that is provided.

I build cell sites for a living and Verizon has the best infrastructure by far. For all the people who are having poor reception indoors just by a repeater, booster or famocell. I get 4+ bars in my basement now.

Have a hundred dollar plan and reception isn't worth 2 cents. With the revenue Verizon gets you would think that upgrading towers would be top priorty... .frustration city... argggghhh

Sprint is absolutely terrible. I get very slow or sometimes no Internet or data with them. Even when the phone indicates LTE it just sits and spins. Right in the heart of the fastest growing part of Portland you would think they could figure it out. Sprint is my work phone and a casual poll of about 15 other users and we all wish the company would switch I have an AT&T personal IPhone that has excellent speed and coverage. I can out the two exact devices side by side And the Sprint phone sputters while the AT&T soars around the web and email. I wouldn't recommend Sprint to anyone

Voice calls are acceptable with one or two dropped calls per 20 calls. Data limit on phone is 3G and web speeds are acceptable, not great.

I provide feedback from poor data speeds in downtown Portland last July. I have continued to complain and Verizon seems unable to improve performance. My office is on the 12th floor by the window. Data speeds began to noticeably degrade in early June and I collected extensive data that I shared with Verizon tech support.I am now out of contract so I just checked again and the 4G speed is 0.56 Mbps down and 0.28 Mbps up. This is worse than the old DSL I had from Quest in this same building. I guess I have to look elsewhere to get 4G in downtown Portland Oregon.

I never get 4g LTE coverage and often get no reception at all. I called Verizon to complain and was told that a tower was nearby and so there was no problem. Empirical evidence seems to not matter to their theoretical models. I can't get reception should trump you should get coverage. I know when my contract is up I will not be back.

I'm furious right now. Bought a Straight Talk phone that uses Verizon Network. Before doing so, I plugged in my ZIP as they requested and was told the phone was good for my area. However, after receiving the phone today and entering my actual address (on Scholls between Denny and Hall), I was told that there was no service. The earlier reviewer for my area had it right; there's a dead zone in the Denny-Whitford neighborhood.

Our phone reception here is awful. Constant static, dropped calls, no service. Have to move around, go outside, etc. Half my conversations are "Can you hear me, can you hear me?" Highly frustrating. When I called AT&T I was told it was because of all the trees. Humph. My husband just got a new work phone with Verizon service so we are anxious to see if that is better. Wish I knew what Credo's reception is like here.
