4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Walnut | 40-41St., Philadelphia, PA 19104 |

Reception around campus is excellent. I even get 4-5 bars when in my building at 34 and Walnut. However, the second I set foot in my building (Walnut and 40-41st) I'm lucky to see 3 bars, but 1-2 is the norm.

Great reception. Works fine even in the elevator. Only at times deep inside a building loses reception. Otherwise in the outdoors works great.

I use a Nextel for work. Bottom line, it sucks. Not only do you have to leave a building to use it, but even then you have to walk around until you get lucky. If you don't believe me, walk around Temple and look for people with Nextel's. They'll be hovering around doorways and windows trying to make calls. I've also heard things about Philly's emergency network conflicting with Nextel's frequency, so beware...

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | 10th | Bainbridge, Philadelphia, PA 19147 |

I came to T-Mobile from Sprint (don't get me started). I love T-Mobile. I never have trouble around Philly. Center City, South Philly, Temple, West Philly. Sometimes the signal bars go down, but my phone can always make a call and hold it. The only places I have trouble are out in the middle of nowhere Lehigh Valley, but that's to be expected...

I work for SEPTA and this is the location of my bus loop and when I make calls from here I either get poor reception or calls drop altogether.

T-Mobile's reception on campus is horrid. Reception will drop from 5 to 0 by taking a few small steps. Many places have no reception whatsoever. T-Mobile needs to improve reception in this area. Not recommended.

This is the first complaint I have regarding VZW service; I've been very satisfied with their reception and signal quality in the Philly metro area since 1998. I moved to this address in March, and I drop many calls, calls go straight into VM without ringing, and I usually get only 1 or 2 bars for signal strength. I know I'm using an old phone - don't want to give up analog - but it had worked fine for over 4 years until I moved.

Signal strength was good until about 3 months ago, then it dropped to almost nothing. Verizon ticket #657100 was open for a month and still Verizon could not explain the loss of signal in my area.
