There seem to be a few dead spots here and there. They seem consistent -
eg in the same place each time. This seems to be true of all the
carriers, but the spots are in different places.
Some are understandable, most inside some place surrounded by a
lot of concrete. Interior bathrooms are common dead spots for
all of the carriers. But, others are hard to figure.
On average, it seems like Verizon coverage is about the most complete,
but it isn't perfect.
Anyway, that is my exerience combined with others I talk with.
