Do You Have Cell Phone Reception Issues

Does Your Phone Ever Drop Calls Due to Bad Reception?

I'm one of the lucky ones who hardly ever falls victim to phone carrier issues, choppy reception, or bad network areas. But I haven't always been so lucky. . . I once moved into an apartment where I had zero zero phone reception, and seriously thought my life was over (needless to say, I didn't live there for very long).

If you've been following the hilarious Rachel Zoe Project then you probably remember this scene from the first episode. Poor Brad was having phone reception issues on Sunset Boulevard in LA. . . of all places! What are some of your network woes? Please share below! And to see which regions have good reception, you can always check out Got Reception.

I live out in the boondocks (Wyoming) and there are huge swathes of land that have zero cell service. At least three times a day I get a "searching for service" message. We have Verizon out here in the sticks and AT&T doesn't even offer service. Even if I bought an iPhone I couldn't get cell service.

I never ever have a problem with Verizon. I've been a customer of theirs for about 10 years and I won't ever switch. The service itself is fantastic and if I ever have any problem at all they fix it immediately. Big fan of Verizon!

I have AT&T (i have an iPhone) and I constantly get dropped calls and I live in SF. Also in my apt i get no reception & had to get a landline. As soon as the iPhone is on another carrier, I am making the switch. Thankfully, I don't use the phone much. I text more than anything.

I do have the occasional reception issue, which drives me crazy!! I have T-Mobile...we never used to have problems and now all of a sudden, I can't stand in my kitchen on my phone. I don't have a landline, so I have no alternative. Drives me effing nuts!

I find that I don't have any trouble with verizon, however some of my friends and family who have at&t or cincinnati bell struggle to find reception.
