I live in uptown Manhattan and have been trying out Verizon as my wireless provider. I switched from T-Mobile because that one was completely dead indoors, and I was told that Verizon was the best. However, I still have the hardest time using Verizon from inside my apartment. Almost every call I make is eventually lost and the conversations are very choppy. I know that they say that they can't guarantee indoor coverage, but most of my colleagues are able to rely solely on a mobile phone (no home phones) and I was hoping I could do the same. My AT&T prepaid actually works better in my apartment, no voice choppiness and more bars. But I am hesitant to make yet another switch because I hear that Verizon is really better than AT&T overall. I have two questions here: 1.) Can anyone who's recently tried both Verizon and AT&T, specifically in the NYC area, share his/her experience? 2.) I have an LG8300vx. In one of the many calls I made to technical support, I was told that a Motorola might work better. Are there any specific models that provide better signal strength than others? I've read some old threads, but those were from almost a year ago and I figure things change. Would very much appreciate any advice you can give. Thanks!
