Majority of calls drop; others are poor quality. Data is so slow / / who cares that it is unlimited if I can't use it? Just switched from ATT to Tmobile. Planning to attempt a switch back, T-Mobile is horrible.

I've lived in this area for 12+ years and I've never consistently received such poor cell signal coverage / reception. Bought a new phone last year on Verizon's recommendation to try to improve my reception yet I still only get 1-2 bars 3G (both inside and outside). I know Verizon is aware of the problem but I just don't understand why there are still no Verizon towers in this entire area (SW Portland / Tigard). I'm no telecom expert but I'd feel better if there was at least 1 Verizon tower on this side of town or even in Tigard / Beaverton.

Once in a while my phone will work. Mostly however absolutely no bar's at all. Contacts to even get a phone number, works occasionally. Be into T-Mobile store several times. The employees are nice and try to be helpful. But unfortunately this doesn't solve the problems. At times I might get one bar! T-Mobile needs to figure out how to boost their singles. Before I forget can't message at all unless it's through Facebook! Help T-Mobile. :-(

Moved from Verizon to AT&T. I immediately noticed the 4g lte speeds are incredibly slow downtown. While Verizon was slower than AT&T in some areas, like the sellwood area, it was still fast enough for me. Now, with AT&T, the speeds are very slow, it's like I'm on a 3G network when I'm supposedly on lte.

I work on the third floor next to a window. 4G LTE speeds have always been slow, but over the last two-three weeks it's abysmal. I can't even complete an Ookla SpeedTest -- it "times out" after several minutes, with a download speed < 0.5Mbps. That's not a misprint. Less than 1 / 2 a Mbps! My signal strength averages -97 dBm, which isn't great but it's not terrible either. So... a device issue? Unlikely as co-workers with different VZW devices experience the same issue. Too much traffic and network congestion? Perhaps. An actual dead zone? Maybe. I don't really know, but whatever's going on is maddening - especially with the "premium" rates VZW customers pay. *Ironically, both speed and signal strength improve as I move inward, closer to the center of the building.

I'm near the bottom of Bull Mountain, on the south side of the hill, facing Sherwood. Signal is generally good, although DATA is sluggish at times. No dropped calls, here. My bill was $177, last month. I would love to get less expensive service, but everyone's comments on here make it sound like VERIZON is the most reliable service, as far as signal strength.

Three years ago I had great service, internet, no dropped calls. Then as soon as AT&T started there greed and wanting to be in Control. AT&T wanted to make sure they had no competitors and could they charged you big time for going over. Verizon is joke too,always charging you for roaming charges along with data overages. Their just as bad as a certain bank ! Every sense to take over Sprint has sucked as far as it goes for phone calls being dropped,messages not being sent and just in general the service has pretty much gone down into the mud !which is a shame because I'd like Sprint. If Sprint wants to keep its customers,they need to get their head out of the mud and start doing something as far as it goes for challenging the greedy suckers and becoming stronger for its customers so I don't recommend Sprint in Washington at all and in many areas of Portland !Because simply its really disappointing to have any type of service that doesn't work well. The customer service is very good !the phone Service 3g &4g service towers needs to be established.

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 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.
