Verizon Service in NYC


Nov 16, 2003, 11:56 PM
Guys and Gals, I need some help here, I'm a current Nextel user Sad and I hate the service. I'm trying to find who - Verizon or (Dare I say it here) T-Mobile - has the better service.

What is your experience with the service of Verizon? how is it in the tunnels of NYC - Midtown, LIRR, etc. How is it in the malls of Long island, Queens, Manhattan, etc.

What phones of Verizon get the best reception?

Sorry if this has been covered before, but I'm new to the forum.

TIA, for your input!

Verizon has probably the best service in the NYC area, bar none. I had Nextel at one point, and it was horrendous. There is not good coverage on the Metro North (Harlem line anyway), I can't speak for the LIRR. Works great in Westchester. For the most part, I have coverage everywhere, switch to Verizon, you'll be glad you did. I have a Startac and it gets great reception. My wife has a LG VX3100 and so far (She's had it for a week now) no complaints with it. Good luck!

Have had verizon now for a week, Out on long Island no other company can compare. Had T-Mobile and still paying for last 2 months of AT&T. Verizon is a winner. So far only mall I've been in is Roosevelt Field, perfect reception. Have the samsung a530, I've found its reception to be far superior to my friends LG 4400 and 3100. Standing right next to one another, I get 4-5 bars and they only had 2-3. Go with Verizon you'll love it.
