2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | NE Fremont | N Williams Ave., Portland, OR 97212 |

Had to stand outside or in the perfect spot at home in order to make or answer a call. Phone never worked in any basement. Always seemed to have full bars until I hit the talk button. Has major dead zones down NE Ainsworth, between NE Skidmore and Alberta. TMobile said that they had more towers but then started dropping calls down the I5 corridor, at Lloyd Center, at any Target store, and in SW Portland (near PCC Sylvania). Customer service was always very nice (in person and on phone) but the coverage map isn't realistic.

Little to no reception from home. Spotty in other areas. When I have no service it's always the Verizon subscribers that DO, (except in Vancouver). Will a carrier please step forward and give southeast Vancouver some decent coverage.

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 160th Ave. and Village Loop, Vancouver, WA 98683 |

Have been with AT&T for years and have never had a problem. Just purchased an iPhone 3GS and all of a sudden I get no service inside my home after using the phone without fail for 5 days. I have to drive about 3-4 blocks NE on 160th Ave to make a phone call. Went back to AT&T and they said it was a bad SIM card, replaced and said I should have no problems. Well, that didn't work either. They say my only option is to turn the phone back in for a small fee and they will let me out of my contract, purchase an AT&T MicroCell for $150.00 that will give me 5 bars in the house or take my phone to Apple and see if it is bad! Well, my husband's phone (my old phone) is now only working sporadically. So apparently, something has been done to the tower in my area that has screwed up our service. I had Verizon many years ago and that didn't work at home either. Now what carrier do I choose?

Reception is ok on the street but not in the houses. Signal is sufficient only in northwest corner of house. The hill may be blocking the signal. The power saving mode of the phone may be compounding the problem too. The signal is better if the phone was just turned on, when it runs in high power mode. Later the bars drop so low it won't receive or make calls without turning it off / on or moving to a stronger signal spot. Even turning it off / on doesn't help in the back of the house. Tried using a signal boost repeater, but it didn't seem to help. Also, not knowing the nearest tower location didn't help because I cannot point the repeater's antenna in the proper direction. It would be helpful to have more antenna locations in this data base.

I get nothing at all in my basement and 1 bar if I'm lucky elsewhere in the house. I make jokes that "the Sprint truck just went to the next block to let them make a call" whenever a call gets dropped - which is very frequent. I sometimes have to go through 4 or more phone calls to get the details back and forth. I get great reception downtown but at my house it is more trouble than it's worth to try to use my phone. I'm seriously thinking about using another provider.

I moved from NW (off 21st) and had no problems with reception to SE (34th and Clinton) and the reception is HORRIBLE. If I'm in my house, I generally can't make it through a call with dropping it multiple times. I called AT&T to complain and all they told me was they can't guarantee service indoors. However, today I was sitting outside on the patio and my call dropped from there as well. A family member told me (after viewing a picture of my house and seeing the electrical lines) that the electrical lines are what is causing the interference with reception. I guess I'll be looking at crappy service until I move.

I get good reception in my new place, which is a MAJOR improvement over my old place in NoPo, where I had to walk down the street to escape the dead zone around me. Pretty consistent 3G coverage too.

For the last 2 months I've been having terrible outages. Can't receive or make calls or send text messages for several hours. Just turned 3G off and that seemed to help.

Rarely drops calls, rarely have problems anywhere in the city, except for one particular spot: my place of work; it's terrible: 8111 S.W. West Slope Dr.(near border of Washington and Multnomah County, near top of the Sylvan hill off Rte. 26).
