Missed calls, no ring. Data is soooo slow. This is not even 3G even though it shows 3G on phone. Very disappointing.

Last week I noticed in the evenings My phone was receiving 4g ( note here not 4g speeds at all but the phone registered 4g Samsung galaxy note 2 ) in the mornings same place same counter top it said 3g. What I am saying is I believe they are testing the install of 4g. The speeds while testing were very slow. By the way the 4g does work elsewhere.

Just like most of you out there I have been having a crap load of issues with sprint. Over the last 2 months I have had over 300 dropped calls. After 15 dropped calls to Sprint and an hour long chat on the computer. Then a last ditch call I was told six of the Sprint towers are not up and work in all of Havasu, the two main towers by my home are down. We all need to call and tell them what a crappy system that they have here and demand a credit from them for all this crap. If the big shots start to see that 200 people have called in and where given a 15 dollar credit the will see 3000 dollars gone. It may cause them to go and fix the issue not just say who cares.

Strange that sometimes I get "Out of Service" msgs while phone is on desk. Mohave must still be messing with the system because sometimes, I get echoing and my own voice delayed by one second.

Sprint had great service in Lake Havasu until they started upgrading their towers earlier this year. I have had dropped calls several times a week since March 2013. I am tired of their excuses and promises to get better. I'm looking to switch providers. Luckily I am no longer under contract.

NOW it's perfect... the last six months has been terrible (we've had Verizon about four years)with dropped calls, other calls can't get through, even our son with Verizon ended up calling our land line. Keep up the good work!

My Verizon phone doesn't work here at all. I spoke with a lady who told me Verizon bought out Mohave! But it will still be 8 months before they are up and running. Yeah

Dozens of dropped calls. I have to leave the house to make a call. AT&T has tried to fix the problem but nothing has worked.

I moved to Havasu in Feb. Luckily I have a iPhone5. My carrier is Verizon. I was sad that I moved to one of the few areas to have good Verizon service. They just replaced a Sprint store with a Verizon store in the Basha's shopping center 7 / 11 / 13. My son went in and talked with a rep. they told him that 3G is coming soon and in about 1-2 months 4G-LTE will be hear as well. Verizon must have kissed and made up with Mohave Wireless or vise-versa. Guess we'll see.

I have a Droid2 and get good phone reception around the LHC area. Data is sometimes 3G and sometimes not, but works ok, though I wish for better. Phone often says extended area, but no problem with calls, and no dropped calls. I'm off contract, so may try for T-Mobile after towers get upgraded, maybe in summer.

As a quick follow-up to my review below regarding my conversation with Verizon Corporate Representatives: AT&T reps told me they have 11 towers in Lake Havasu City. I've no idea how many towers Sprint has. However, because Verizon has no towers, and Verizon customers are always "roaming" on Mohave Cellular's towers, Verizon customers will never get 3G, let alone 4G, and will always be on the "Extended Network". Extended networks will rarely allow data through because of a priority issue. So reading through all of the Verizon reviews, every person is correct, no data, calls go straight to voice mail, etc., because Mohave Cellular is forced by the FCC to allow Verizon customers to piggyback off of their towers, but the Verizon customers are always at the mercy of the paying Mohave Cellular customers when the towers get congested. That being said, if you want out of your Verizon contract, I've just given you the ammunition to do so; Verizon MUST let you out with no cancellation fees. Period. Good luck. And I can't say great thing about AT&T, but they are significantly better than Verizon hands down.

For all Verizon users; after months of battling with them when I moved to Lake Havasu City, after writing the CEO of Verizon, I finally uncovered the reason for the poor Verizon service. Mohave Cellular owns the territory. AT&T and Sprint were smart enough to pay money and purchase towers from Mohave Cellular. Verizon failed to purchase any towers. According to the Verizon corporate rep, there is some sort of beef between V and MC, and Verizon will never, ever be able to purchase towers from MC in Lake Havasu City. FCC regulations demand Mohave Cellular allow Verizon customers to roam on MC's towers. However, during heavy usage (like on big weekends in Havasu), Mohave Cellular's clients have priority over Verizon's roamers and the roamers literally get booted off of MC's towers. Hence, if you have Verizon, you will never, ever get good service in Lake Havasu City. That came straight from a Verizon Corporate Representative who chose to be honest with me and released me from my contract so I could move to AT&T.
