I had switched to T Mobile from Verizon not really knowing how well the reception would be. Once I heard that 4G LTE was now available in the Phoenix area through T Mobile I decided to give it a try. Switching carriers was the best decision I made this year, my bill is half the price, and my reception with T Mobile was much better than it was with Verizon. The bars for my 4G LTE signal is one bar away from being full, and if I happen to be in an area where the signal might not be as strong then HSPA+ would kick in.Was this review helpful to you?
Actually I am with Virgin Mobile as my daughter sent it to me from CA. I am on my third phone, no reception web either here or in Scottsdale where I just left at Via Ventura and Hayden. They use Sprint network and there is no coverage. My son is well versed on this and laughs at me that I am so techno stupid.Was this review helpful to you?

T-Mobile signal is very weak to non-existent at times within the office building at 48 St. and Francisco Dr. Have spoken to other co-workers, they get good signal strength on ATT or Verizon. T-Mobile, you better fix the signal strength or we switch to another carrier!Was this review helpful to you?
Rarely 3G with TMobile. No service inside office building or grocery store. No service at all in many parts of the state while Verizon is 4G level. Have to use wi-fi inside our house for internet use.Was this review helpful to you?

Well... to put it in less words... your data coverage and unlimited plans are a great deal... however... DATA SPEEDS SUCK HORRIBLY! EVERYWHERE IN ARIZONA! I went back to kansas recently where I am from and it was incredible. Had full bars with 4G the entire time. What is the hold up here in PHX... I get about 2-3 bars if I'm lucky. And a lot of times I cant even get data connection in my own house or at work. Even had the same problems when sitting outside at work... give me a break! You sell 4G but do not have it available... and the 3G that they do have is total garbage. Come on... give us something so we dont have to take it in the butt from verizon.Was this review helpful to you?
I have had Sprint for a few years. I have had HORRIBLE reception, no matter where I go. Im usually in Anthem. Took me 45 minutes, walking around the house, holding my phone in the air, just to send a text message. The only way I could ever do anything when I was there, was if I was roaming. So now Sprint terminated the contract due to excessive roaming (eventho we have unlimited roaming). the other places, Im lucky if I get one bar. Its ridiculous. We pay over $200 a month for the phones and get the worst reception. Plus, no 4g yet? Its ridiculous. Sprint SUCKS.. Straight talk uses the same towers and horrible reception for them also.Was this review helpful to you?
Two weeks ago our service literally fell off the grid. 95% of the time we cannot make or receive phone calls. No problem with text messaging. Have contacted Verizon and never got a satisfactory answer. We suddenly find ourselves in a black hole with the solution Verizon suggest - buy their $250 net work booster. I consider this a breach of contract. Very disappointed in a company I was very happy with. Did they recently loose a contract on a cell tower that provided service to us?Was this review helpful to you?
