    Question Honestly who has better service... Verizon or AT&T

    So honestly who has better service? With the ad wars going on and verizon dropping (in my opinion) one of the best phones ever... who has better service?

    In service im talking about:
    *Phone Service (bars)
    *3g Service
    *3g Speed
    *Customer service
    *Phone call quality
    *Map coverage
    *Phone quality

    and is there anyway to actually verify the statements each of them make about there service?

    I had att for about 2 n a half years and iv had verizon for 2 years and about 80% of people i know have att and iv observed that verizon is superior in all areas. There has been a couple insedents that my friend had service with his iphone and i didn't.. but then again i didnt have my droid!

    It really all depends on your location. I had perfect reception with At&t until I moved- then I couldn't even get a signal in my house. I didn't have a single bar. With Verizon I have 2-3 bars in my house, so no complaints here.

    In the Philly area AT&T was about as bad as it could be for me. I would have great reception and a mile down the road drop a call. It would drop calls all the time. My boss thought I was just hanging up on him. Texts would come 15 minutes after they were sent. That was with a work issued phone.

    I've been with VZW for 8 years now and honestly I don't ever remember dropping a call. I get full bars in my house and the 3G is amazing. I don't even bother using my wifi in the house.

    I have ATT still with my blackberry bold.. ATT is awful, everytime I want to make a call it takes two attempts, the data is slow anymore and cuts in/out all the time (when using radio apps). My GF has an iphone and has the same experience.. We are in the Columbus, OH area. No issues so far with verizon.

    I have Verizon for personal use and have had no issues with dropped calls or coverage in the Cincy area. On the other hand I have At&t as a work phone and constantly dropping calls.

    The problem with AT&T is that even if you are in a major city and have terrific coverage, their network can't handle the load and you end up getting knocked down to Edge (2g).

    The only complaint I have with Verizon is that CDMA is very chatty when there's no coverage. So if I am somewhere where there isn't any coverage for an extended period of time, the battery is drained very quickly. Luckily that doesn't happen often with Verizon.

    helllo...

    i'm new to the droidforum. to stay on thread...i've been with verizon since it was contel...that means bag phones, "bricks", and then Treos...just upgraded to the droid from a centra....bit of a culture shock, but i think i will enjoy it.

    the service i get from verizon has always been top notch...i have a number of friends who have been on sprint, at&t, other services...most (who pay for the service themselves) have moved to verizon. main reason is coverage area...
