1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Tarrant / Center Point, Birmingham, AL 35215 |

We have T Mobile and cant get text messages out, calls get dropped. Seems like we go thru this several times a year in the 35215 zip code. Might help if cell towers are put in this area too, not just Hoover. This is getting old... ...

I have had AT&T for 10 years and I'm mostly satisfied. The service is really good but the reason I say mostly satisfied is because I feel as many people have cell phones these days there shouldn't be an area with no coverage! But AT&T does work really well.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Stadium Trace | Brocks Gap Pkwy., Birmingham, AL 35244 |

Reception generally at 3 bars or more in the area but certain dead spots along commonly traveled roads including the intersection of Brocks Gap Pkwy. and Stadium Trace. Daughters report no service in certain parts of Lake Cyrus which is close to Bessemer. Was considering switching to AT&T until I saw the spotty record they, Verizon and T-Mobile have.

T-Mobile seems to have very stable coverage throughout metro Birmingham. Switched from Sprint about a year ago and am much more satisfied.

I live on top of the mountain, by the old Discovery Place museum. AT&T is excellent on an iphone 5 and I have a cheap back up phone that is on t-Mobil, it's really good also. Both phones show full bars inside apartment.

Reception is poor most of the time. Cant send out texts or get / receive calls at all if I am downstairs in my living room. I have to pay for landline because of this substandard service. It's really stupid to have so many customers in an area where there isn't a cell tower nearby. I came to T- mobile thinking I would get better service. Very disappointing.

We have used Verizon for a number of years. We can barely get cell service at our home and sometimes not at all. I am checking AT&T for this area and if it is any better at all, my husband and I will be switching. Very disappointed in Verizon cell service.

Salesman Eric shouldn't be in this position... arrogant and very unhelpful...my phone worked fine except email had stopped... ..by the time he finished with my phone he had erased all my download documents and emails and texts and calender appts. Now says the phone has slowed. It worked just fine before I gave it to him. And of course mention only if I had insurance would I get a new phone. How about helping instead of copping an attitude! All he said was go home and reset my password for email and handed back my phone to me. Terrible service.
