1 bar, conversations cut out driving on Main street in downtown Los Angeles. My wife reports the same thing through West Hollywood on Fountain and in Hollywood on the same street. I filed a report with 611 today, and it felt a bit futile. ("You can call back to see if we've done anything." Oh, can I? I can call back if you improve the reception. 😉
I will say that in Los Angeles, on Verizon: 1 bar is sort of what I get. I also get it on the 110N from Chinatown to nearly South Pasadena. But the losing the voice thing is problematic. Hopefully new cell towers come in soon.
