WARNING - If you live in Chicago, DO NOT get AT&T wireless service!
CONSISTANTLY BAD RECEPTION - Complaint
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- ALERT...AT&T wireless reception is poor at many locations in the city of Chicago. Test and check with others before you sign up.
The reception can be so inadequate that AT&T may ask you to pay more in addition to your regular bill to buy another device (MicroCell) that might increase reception in just one selected spot, even though you are already paying them for service in that location. They will fault your phone, battery life, building interference, weather, stars or whatever, but will not accept responsibility.
AT&T is obviously having issues and are not telling cutomers. After over 6 months of wasted time on the phone trying to resolve, I finally got tired of AT&T's excuses and switched to Verison, miraculously with the same type of phone and the same conditions the reception was perfect.
I you want good reception and service in Chicago, I recommend to stay away from AT&T and go to another service carrier!
