Some areas of Riverside have poor reception, such as along the north side of the 91 freeway between Van Buren and Arlington, exceptionally poor at the T Mobile store at Arlington and Madison ironically. Over all the service is really good. I believe that T Mobile needs to build and install more towers to create better service... which is obvious lagging behind Verizon. I had Verizon, but lost reception in certain buildings and costing twice as much as T Mobile (we have 6 lines on the account) caused us to switch.

Several blackout areas along the 91 freeway and all along Indiana Avenue. Dropped calls, "No Internet Connection." Had this over three different phones, so I don't care to hear that it's the hardware. I have friends with the exact same model phone but with Verizon service. They can stream movies in the same place I'm getting zero service. Avoid T-Mobile in the IE.

I remember that back in 2003 - 2004, T-Mobile had better reception than Verizon. I had moved on to AT&T (iPhone 3GS) from T-mobile, and AT&T's signal quality was getting worse every year in Canyon Crest area. In 2010, I made switch to Sprint (Galaxy S2), and then realized I was paying for 4G that was simply unavailable not only in my area but also in most of Riverside and Moreno Valley area. Then I decided to give Verizon (LG G2) a try, and although I don't always gt 5 bars, I do get 4G LTE signal and at least 1-2 bars in most of Riverside / Moreno Valley area. I would say that your best bet for inland empire is Verizon whether you like or not.

It's a breach of any contract that proclaims a 4g service to their phone customers and its not available, let alone the phone carrier failing to provide a disclaimer to customers where 4g coverage isn't available. And to further show the integrity of these phone providers, their phones are Programmed to flash the 4g data connection on their customers phones leaving unknowing customers believing their receiving a 4g service. Until customers start filing civil actions against these phone carriers, these phone companies will continue to deceive the majority of their unknowing customers. Start with the BBB to resolve the breach of contract and failure to disclose.

Since we started with Verizon, our service has gone from poor to very reliable. Our dead zones were partly due to the many trees in our yard but that is no longer an issue. We even dropped our land line service last year and are happy with the decision. Verizon Customer Service could be better.

Been with Sprint almost four years. Never did improve yet.Talked to many representatives for Sprint, they all have the same excuses. They must go to school to learn how to lie to customers. They are very rude also. What the use of having unlimited data if you don't get it and still paying for it.

The WORST! I can text sometimes, call yes, but with THE WORST quality. Go on internet, forget that. I mean why not pay $100 for unlimited everything and get nothing.
