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.Was this review helpful to you?
Dropped calls are occasional, with weak signal. This has been a problem for years with no improvement offered by Verizon with various phones.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
Fairly decent here usually - however, NO reception at OHSU / on Marquam Hill.Was this review helpful to you?
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).Was this review helpful to you?
I get absolutely no signal in half of my house, while I get a weak signal with frequently dropped calls in the other half. Also, internet connection is slow at best when I'm at home. While there are some places outside of my house where I get a strong signal with fast internet, it isn't the norm. I've traveled the western US with my girlfriend, who has AT&T. She consistently has a better signal than I do. However, I'm switching to Verizon as soon as my contract is up. The plans cost more, but it seems that their coverage is the most consistent on a national level.Was this review helpful to you?
I've had several carriers when I was still working and traveling Idaho,Washington,Oregon and California and Verizon has been the most reliable carrier. This phone has been the best reception, during a major storm I was living in Long Beach,Wa. and was the only one with reception, I loaned my phone to people to call out.Was this review helpful to you?
