I hate the NOTE 3

Member

Is anyone else having problems with cell service with this junk phone. I live in a 4G area, my friends that come over with AT&T have full 4G service. Other numbers under this account work fine in my house. I on the other had have to walk down the street to make a call or send a darn text message. I spent hrs on the phone with Tech support and still can not get this phone to work. I am so unhappy with the phone I am getting rid of it. It's complete junk.

There must be something wrong with the radio on the VZW Note 3. It seldom gets 4G service for me and I've already had it swapped out once.

I live in Phoenix -- right in the middle of a four million person metropolis and a mile from a giant Verizon tower. I thought I was in a dead zone, then I moved.

Same 3G nonsense.

I had my Nexus 4 modified to use the LTE radio on T-Mobile before switching to VZW four months ago. I'd get 20-30 mbps Speed Tests all around town.

In the off event I'm driving around and see three or (gasp!) four LTE bars, I'll run a Speed Test ... 6 ... 7 ... 8 mbps, tops.

Both mine and my wife note 3 having a same problem making and receive phone call at home.  My work phone is not a note 3 with verizon is working fine at my home.  I live in the city and never have signal problem even with t-mobile.  I think note 3 have a signal receiving issue.  However verizon tech did not think so.  They will send two new note 3 to me.   I refer to get a different phone, but I can not.  Will see how new phones will work.  I may go back to t-mobile.  It is suck that you think you get better signals by paying extra money to switch from t-mobile to verizon.  The tech said that he never see any problem with note 3.  It is a lie since you can see how many people have a same problem without any complaint?

I have also has issues with my note 3 since I got it in November. 90% of the time I have no service at my home while other Verizon phone are fine. I have tried factory resets and pulling the sim card. It appears it is an inherent problem with the note 3 antenna or software as I have seen several threads regarding the problem. My note 2 did not have any of these issues in the same location.

Me too! I've replaced the phone and the SIM card. Tech support us great but it takes hours and I can do more with my time than try to continue the same troubleshooting.  I think I'm going to let them send me another phone because that is the only option I have unless I want to purchase a new phone again as I did this at full price! And I also have the Samsung Galaxy Gear (watch) so if I don't go into an S4 or S5 I lose that investment.
