    Hello everyone! I went to walmart and my signal dropped to "no service" the to "gprs" I'm currently using AT&T service. Does this happen to anyone else when you go to walmart?

    It all depends on AT&T's coverage in your area. And we don't all shop in the same Walmart..

    Try having band 4 LTE only in your area... Any building I enter I always lose LTE, but my 3G service will be at 1-3 bars depending where I am in a store. Carrier: Bell Canada.

    I get LTE everywhere in town. It's just that when I went to walmart, my service completely dropped. I recently transferred over from verizon and when I was with them I didn't have the signal issue with them when I went to walmart. I'm not trying to compare the two. Both have their pros and cons.

    I also found Walmart to be a weak signal area regardless of carrier

    Metal can interfere with cellular and wifi signals. I was in a church gym for my Granddaughter's basketball birthday party. I could not get LTE or any signal strong enough to send a photo iMessage. I had to go outside. At home, I was getting a very weak wifi signal while sitting in a room 35' from my modem. It turned out to be my huge 26 cu ft fridge. It was in the direct path between me and the modem. I pulled the fridge out about 3' and the signal went from 1.2 Mbps to 12 Mbps download. Even rebar in walls will interfere.

    Update: Since I was having numerous problems with my phone, AT&T replaced the SIM card in my phone and resent a signal. They also replaced the sim in my bf GS4. Today, I went into walmart, and I was still getting LTE. I hope everything continues to work because I'm enjoying the customer service from AT&T. Also, we are still within our 14 day buyers remorse period in case we have to change anything.
