2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | S 45th St. | Spruce, Philadelphia, PA 19104 |

I get 0 bars inside my apartment (2nd floor). Outside, I get 5 bars immediately. Other than inside my apartment, I've had excellent signal. That said, my iphone toting friend is frequently dropped off the network while we were walking and driving in the University City area!

Never had a problem in or around this area. Have had Sprint for several years and very surprised when I hear people talk smack about Sprint coverage yet I'm the one looking things up on my smartphone while my iPhone praising friends comment in disgust, "urgh. AT&T is so slow". I would have to say Sprint is just as good as Verizon in the Philly area.

I have had very positive experiences with T mobile. I hear Verizon is good, as well. It's AT&T I am worried about. I was considering switching to the iphone, but with still so many complaints about service and dropped calls, I am hesitant. When I asked AT&T customer service about it, they said they have good coveraget in my area and are always improving. That wasn't specific enough for me. For now, I am sticking with T moble- their customer service is excellent and international service is also the most reasonable for periodic travel.

Maybe I'm lucky but I get five bars in the corner of my apartment. No dropped calls and pretty clear reception. I didn't sign up for the 3G plan though because it's apparently still not very good. Will wait until they develop that later this summer. No complaints thus far...

I had T-Mobile for a year and they always dropped my calls. I had no reception in my house and the bars were always low. I don't like T-Mobile anymore due to lack of service.

Verizon is by far the best network in this area. AT&T sucks! I had so many dropped calls and horrible call quality. Verizon rocks here.

I have been a complaining to AT&T for bad reception and dropped calls for 2 years already. They changed my phone and SIM card thinking it was the problem. Still extremely bad reception in and out of my complex. And this is where I use the phone most. Seeing their ad on TV, what a big lie. Will definitely look for another carrier.

At&t in my area is perfection, in and out of my house I get all bars of service I never dropped a call and the volume on my phone is perfect. AT&T I think is better then any other compnay

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Cira Centre - 2929 Arch St., Philadelphia, PA 19104 |

While I usually have 5 bars, I have rated the reception poor because of the poor call quality I receive at this location. It is my office, which is pretty high up in the Cira Centre. While my phone almost always shows full strength signal, it is very difficult to reliably make or receive calls. On many calls, the voice breaks up and at other times, I have trouble getting a call to go through. Most problems seem to be correlated with lunch time and the 4 pm - 6 pm. Definitely frustrating to not be able to reliably use my cell phone at the office.
