East Hill in Kent, for over ten years, Verizon is zero to occasionally one bar of 1G. Never seen 4G work here. Voice and data both are so intermittent that calls just don't work.

Verizon has horrible reception in the East Kent Area. My home is near 3 grade schools and a High School. Never gets 4G 1 bar and occasional 2 or3 bars and occasional 3G. Worst service ever. Complained to Verizon on False Advertising. They should offer network extenders for free until they fix their horrible service. Service this poor will eventually result in my leaving them and since they do not care I hope they go out of business. Sprint was a little Better and T Mobile Service reception is much much better.

Well, I had no problems before xmas 2014, using my phone on bluetooth in my car was crystal clear, never had calls dropped, all games and apps and music stations on my phone worked flawlessly even with only 1 or 2 bars... . UNTIL... came back to work in the new year and heard from other Sprint users that the signal has disappeared. Not sure if it is a temporary outage or if it's something that is permanent. But nothing works now. My phone has essentially become a very expensive MP3 player. Even games don't work. Internet works but is very slow. No phone, no texts, no apps, not even Siri works. Sprint? WTF?

I used to have a hard time hearing everything, some calls dropped or I wouldn't hear my phone ring but get voicemail. Very inconsistent.

Great download speeds, terrible coverage. I have to step outside my house to get cell coverage. Also, anytime I am indoors without a clear / nearly clear line of sight to a tower the coverage is lousy.

My calls outbound and inbound have such poor connectivity that the other person cannot hear me or only hears broken sentences. You'd think in a high tech city such as Seattle that the coverage would be at least average to very good. Can't wait to dump Virgin Mobile!

I have switched back and forth throughout the years. I have been lured into "unlimited" plans from T-Mobile and Sprint and never was really able to use that feature. Switching back to AT&T not only gives me better service but also great rates plans that are cheaper than what I was paying elsewhere.

Pretty terrible coverage throughout the city. Mostly 3g but roaming way to often. Lucky to get good 4g Bars anywhere. As I write this I'm looking at 3g with 1 bar. I Don't recommend.

I get one to three bars, but mostly it's just one. Their service is overpriced, and performance is abysmal. Rarely if ever get 3G.

In my apartment I get zero reception... x'd out! Very frustrating. Other areas are very poor. Even when I walk in the neighborhood I can hardly get reception. Didn't expect moving into the city would cause worse service.

I work at T-Mobile and I have a windows T-Mobile phone. The problem is, there is no service where I work, only on tmobile.

Tmobile is terrible. I don't recommend ever even thinking about getting any plan with this carrier. There is rarely even GPRS, THERE IS NO LTE, AND WORST OF ALL, THEY CUT MY SPEED.

T-Mobile in Seattle simply is not a good idea. Low bars everywhere you go. Even places with high traffic and central. I've had so many problems with Google Maps and navigation. When taking a route, midway the phone will say "Lost GPS connection". Or sometimes it won't say that but Google Maps won't update. I've checked into Maps itself; it seems to be a T-Mobile issue. I guess this because they replaced my phone, but still the same problem. Oh well. Now I've bad experiences with Verizon and T-Mobile in Seattle. I guess I'll have to try AT&T next and hope for the best.

Sometimes calls will go straight to vm. Hardly ever have a dropped call which is why I switched from AT&T. Great coverage.

I have had Verizon for years. I have been satisfied with it, but I am going to give Sprint a try, because I need a better plan!

No Service where I work. No service at home. I'm fed up. Service comes and goes on the commute but is very unstable and is absent more often than not.

This is unusable. There is nothing more to it. Unusable. I am from the UK and when I came to the United States, I was very excited because they say that technology is better here, but in the UK I had 3G / 4G. Here there is EDGE. I am seriously not liking this.
