Wow, everyone's talking bad about Sprint, but among my group of coworkers I'm the on,y one with Sprint and I have the best coverage and LTE speeds and they don't. I'm getting 80+Mbps speeds in Downtown Oakland.

Horrible. Dropped calls. Cutting out. No carrier does this area even adequately. Got better reception in Mexico.

Signal quality has deteriorated over 2017 to the extent that I am considering resuming the use of a land line at home. Ironically, while property values have increased, cellular service has decreased.

Whenever I walk my dog in the neighborhood and try to make or receive calls, I inevitably experience dropped calls and dead zones.

I travel here regularly for work, been a VZW customer for over 13 years, and have never had as bad a signal as I have had here. And it is throughout the East Bay. Dropped calls, unsent texts, weak signal, 3G and less. Very frustrating.

I guess when it comes to calls I'm just lucky after reading all the other reviews but I can say that any 4 G / L T E is nearly none existent and as they can lie through their teeth in advertisements and get away with it. Great legal system we have, if you can buy it!

Tmobile signal is poor in this part of the oakland hills. I must resort to WiFi calling at home, but then I cannot send or receive MMS messages (on Samsung Galaxy 5). I often have problems receiving multiple duplicates of SMS messages.
