I have read maybe 40-50 reviews and saw about 1-2 good ones the rest are saying how terrible the reception and service is at home and I agree, I have a Sprint phone and when I'm at home I get the crappiest reception, I live in a bad area I need my phone at home! I have called the Sprint offices and let them know they told me they have only had a few reports well maybe they should check these reviews more often and fix this problem I'm getting tired of paying for something that I cant even use!

Frequent dropped calls; maybe "unlimited" data but it's so slow it doesn't mean much! Reception at my house has actually gotten worse over the 2 years I've been with them. It's gotten to the point where phone calls at home are almost un workable, I have to go outside.

Have basic phone, 2years old, can text and web search. Have had zero issues with Verizon in this area or anywhere around town, including deep inside UMC.

Average is actually pretty good in the Foothills area so I have found AT&T service good enough to use as my primary phone. Voice quality is spotty but data (3G) has been fine. There is really nothing to recommend it for except, it works.

Best voice coverage in the Foothills of the three carriers I have used here which is saying a lot because this area is not competetive so far as cell service.

Voice conversations is all but impossible; however, you will be able to send / recieve texts. I think Verizon just wrote off coverage in the Foothills north of Sunrise. Dropped Verizon when I moved here in 2008, too bad because I had no previous problem with them. They are the carrier on my work phone so I can confirm the situation hasn't improved.

The phone companies are sticking it to the American people. High prices for lousy service. We are going back to a land line!

Have had Sprint for 2 years. Internet signal at home is horrible. It drops calls often. Terrible. I'm looking into getting another carrier with AT&T or Verizon. I've had issues with T-Mobile billing in the past where my payment wasn't posted on my acct. When I clearly had it withdrawn from my bank. Sent proof nothing was ever done and it was reported to the credit bearu.

I have At&T and one thing I have noticed with their service is that it largely depends on the phone you are using. When I got a basic phone from At&T (initial 2 year contract), no issues whatsoever inside or outside work (UofA) or home. I didn't yet want to upgrade to a smart phone but bought a more upgraded phone- not from them and the reception was terrible. No reception at all inside the building and after stepping out, took 5 mins to get tuned to the network. Recently, got a phone from AT&T again and the reception is back to being fantastic. I don't know whether they have better network receiving abilities on their phone but I have definitely observed this over a period of 5 years with them.

7-30-13 -- I just got an LG800G TracFone and the T-Mobile signal strength goes up and down very fast. I don't see why it can't just remain steady one way or the other, either terrible or less terrible. According to the very helpful map, however, their tower is the closest to this area. I need to research the fading problem.
