    Visiting Denver for a week and the verizon signal is damns near non-existent. I bounce from 1-3 bars and my battery is dying in like 5 hours........WTF!

    Alabama's signal is great.....I even tried upgrading my roaming list.

    I get pretty good connection in Denver besides where I live. My house is a dead zone.

    I've seen the same thing. Sometimes no data signal at all in the hotel, but voice seemed decent enough.

    Similar in Chicago. I have a feeling VZW network is more overloaded in major cities than we realize (and you and I are not the first people to say this).

    Figure with the IPhone converts from AT&T, plus all the other new sales of IPhone and Android, and it could get ugly real fast. For decent service you might almost be forced to upgrade to LTE in those cities.

    But we'll see. Part of the problem could also be signal penetration, and LTE is supposed to be better.

    I live on the foot of a mountain and i get pretty decent reception. I can say though, cities usually get good reception. I traveled through texas and i was pleased in most cities but not on some of the freeways. Denver i have no memory of... if we even went through it. I know i know, lots o' help right?

    I live west of Denver near the foothills and had to get a network extender for our home due to lack of signal. It works great and I have a good wifi network for most data, browsing, e-mail. Around town, I have not had any problems with reception. My wife calls from her droid and talks with me on her way home from work, downtown, and we never drop a call.

    Coverage varies. This is why general discussions (even at the state level) on coverage and "network" are pointless. Every carrier, even Verizon, has coverage holes.
