I've had AT&T since 2007, and it has been poor service. I drop a call more days than not, and have difficulty hearing the other person, or vice-versa, which is just as bad or worse when they mistake what they thought they heard on a business call. I live by the U of A, and each time school starts up, service gets terrible for a month or two. If I can get a bar at all, my calls often get dropped. Recently, my phone dropped a call at least 5 times during the same conversation. I gave up and found a land line. Web browsing has been so slow, that I don't do it very often. I use to have Sprint (before my company went with AT&T), and lost only two calls in two years, while driving between two large foothills. Used the web browser all the time on that phone, and tethered to my laptop. I'm throwing in the towell on AT&T.

Since mid 2010 call reception has dropped dramatically. Very often, incoming calls are missed completely; people say they have called repeatedly and we do not answer; there is absolutely no indication of incoming calls. Outgoing 0 bars, or 1 bar at most 2 bars IF held in a few spots around the house. It has become a real pain.

THis is second week i'm travelling to Santa Fe and plans to relocate by next month. I'm staying in Hilton, downtown and there is no reception in my room at all. This is same in many places in the town. I'm thinking od breaking the contract with AT&T and planning to go for T mobile.

The coverage map indicates my location as being within "moderate" range but it's really much worse. Almost never get 2 bars and if so, it's fleeting.

I have had Verizon for 8 years and have terrific reception. Maybe there was a dropped call once every year, or so, but I don't even recall for sure. I don't know why others in my same area have trouble.

More dropped calls with AT&T in the first week than with Sprint for the duration of my contract (2 years). Should have waited for verison to get the iphone. I won't be renewing my AT&T contract even with the 25% discount I receive from work.

Performance decreased over past two months. Heard it may be due to loss of towers in / near Tucson. Two bars at best in home. Flips to roaming without reason. Even when talking to technical support, they requested another number to use to talk because of poor reception, missed words, dropped calls. Hate Sprint customer service.

I've been with Verizon a long time and reception used to be decent. As of a few months ago now, reception got very poor such that neighbors began asking eachother if folks were having problems. Verizon claimed it was doing some tower work but the situation has gotten so bad we sometimes save making calls until we gt into town. Constant dropped calls, very bad reception and quality. My wife has a New phone and it is no better. Verizon did SOMETHING out here that has really screwed service up. They say they didn't but the change from one week to the next was completely noticable, by many poeple. I am now looking at alternatives.

At UMC, where coverage is important when waiting for patients to come our of surgery, there are zero ATT bars inside, and even outside in front of the main entrance, not enough signal strength to hold a call. This is in any area when many people on other networks are making calls.
