Default Present day At&t coverage?

I'm thinking about leaving Verizon for straight talk. I'd be using the gnex with a at&t sim. I've heard bad things about dropped calls and spotty coverage. In general has at&t improved over the past few years? and how's the NYC and long Island coverage areas?

Well I switched to AT&T about a month ago and had the same concerns. I had them in the past(years ago) and did have trouble at times. Since I switched though I have had excellent customer service as well as reception.

I live in New Jersey but have traveled up and down the East coast since switching and have had no issues at all. I was surprised in fact that when in S.C. out in a remote area I picked up 4G service.

For all the complaints and bitching about AT&T having a crappy network and horrible service, I have not had any of it. The other thing I will mention is that my bill and plan are exactly what they have said it was going to be, unlike my experience with both Verizon and Sprint.

I have a friend that lives in the New York/Staten island area and he has had no issue either. Hope this helps. I can't speak for Chicago, but being a larger city I would have to say that I doubt there are issues there if they can cover the back woods of S.C.

Again, while not living in your area, i have had no issues with my BYOD AT&T S3 on ST. Even in some remote areas, and trust me Maine has a few, i still am able to make and receive calls. Data slows down in some remote areas but around where i live it exceeds VZW by at least 3 times
We do not currently have LTE in my area but over the air HSPA+ which the phone says is 4G is very good. I get consistently 6 tp 7 MEGA bits over the air at work and 3 to 4 MEGA bits around where i live.
