I was with Verizon for 4yrs with 0 reception problems, BUT data's NOT unlimited and Pricing was outrageous even though customer service IS premium. I came over to Virgin (a Sprint Sub) on THIS SINGLE promise; UNLIMITED data on Nationwide 4GLTE! Although Roseville gets 4GLTE; I've found no where in Sacramento that even receives it. WORSE; Virgin has NO stores and any1 u talk 2 isn't from here: so they DON'T know just how bad the reception IS; nor are they TRAINED to tell you that there IS no return period. You're FORCED to buy a phone on THEIR network online. WORSE: only after you receive, open, and activate your phone are you given access to the disclaimers INCLUDING the fact that they MAY @ anytime @ THEIR discretion THROTTLE back your service to {! 2G!}. How's that in any way unlimited 4GLTE? Now I'm stuck and just learning that they've been claiming Tower problems to be solved NEXT month for OVER 2yrs! If you're planning a switch: FIND a way to bite the Bullet and go VERIZON!

No bars. Can text sometimes using wifi, but can't talk on wifi and can't hear or be heard on wifi.

Live in Sacramento. I've been with Sprint for a year and a half. Due to 2 year contract. I have the iphone 5. Get dropped calls on a regular. Data speed is horrible... I'm basically just paying for my text services. And sometimes that doesn't even work, especially when I'm sending pic texts. I can go down the street to the local Costco area and the phone will pick up LTE. But I live 10 mins away and I'm only on 3g. Been told for almost 6 months that Sprint is working on their towers and things should be better next month.. always next month??? Paying about $200 for 3 lines and text messaging is the only think that works. Sprint sucks. Stay away from them people. And what's worse is when your phone displays 1x...

Greenhaven, CA area - NO bars... signal strength PATHETIC! I've had ZERO problems with Metro PCS, until last week! Now my smart phone functions on 1 bar for signal strength. 1 bar! Went from 4 bars to 1 bar with no change in strength to date! Wtf? Fix this problem NOW or I'm dropping service with Metro PCS.

No bars inside house. Cell phone said I needed WiFi to connect. Connected to WiFi and reception was unusable for voice. Echo canceled out conversation. Can Text, with WiFi, but I can use my computer for that. Cell phone is useless.

I get literally no service in my house. If I go outside I might get a bar but I still cannot make or receive calls. I get voicemails SOMETIMES when my phone has never rang. It is completely unacceptable for what I pay AT&T. It also makes trying to get a job very difficult when your way to communicate is taken away. AT&T has all these commercials saying they are expanding coverage, but it's false advertising. I'm in a residential neighborhood in a very populated area with no service. Myself and my family will be leaving AT&T. Very unacceptable.

Sprint has NO 4g towers in Sacramento. You would think they would try harder being in the STATE CAPITAL to do a better job. 3.8 years later time to go someplace else!

I noticed a huge drop in service in the past 3 months. AT&T said it was service overload. I believe they need to boost the tower on Gloria or they need an additional tower. This is a heavily populated area with dense tall trees. Try harder AT&T!

Very poor reception quality, calls drop frequently in this area. It is annoying / frustrating / hassling by having this trash service. Customer service representatives their supervisors, manager all are selfish. They always try to ignore the client who is suffering from their service. They intimidate clients, lead them in the wrong direction and let the client suffer. They don't really solve the problem and always talk about the contract. They have too many errors in their contract which should change ASAP. I am trying to find a way to take them to the court so they can learn a little bit about to respect their clients and their hard earned money that they are really dumping in trash AT&T. I have so many things to share but it never going to end at the current situation. So please always check the coverage area whenever you are making a contract with any of your cell phone service provider company. They don't care and never tell about their weaknesses but want your money.

Full bars but only in 3G! No LTE here! It's 2014 come on where is the LTE service? Oh wait no one under 85 years old down here (no offense)... Sprint thinks no one would use the data service down here?

No complaint with Verizon coverage, rarely ever have a communication issue, sometimes don't get 4g. Unfortunately, the cost is out of control. Currently have unlimited data plan need new phone they want to terminate old plan and sell new measured plan for more $$

I used to have a Samsung admire metro pcs, and had dropped calls left and right than went to Sprint Iphone 4s, thinking that I would get better reception from sprint. Big mistake. I can't use my phone in the house due to bad reception dropped calls etc. I now have to sit in my car outside my house to have a decent phone call. After reading the reviews on different carriers i'm sold on the belief that land lines are really not that bad. It appears that every cellphone company provider has reception issues and apparently you the customer decide how big of a headache you willing to put up with. For me, Sprint is not the answer.

I have been very happy with Metro PCS service. I almost never have reception problems. The price is great and there are no contracts. You should switch.

Paying $150 per month for zero bars. When I do get connected the reception is terrible. Calls are dropped within a minute or so. Incredibly bad decision to get Sprint -- phone cost plus 2 years of paying on the plan for no phone service will cost me about $3,000.

I have been having dire issues with my Sprint HotSpot all summer (2013). Super slow signal, dropped connections and dead zones in the house. I replaced the battery- same issues. Finally had to replace the HotSpot last night (it was almost 3 yrs old)-- the Sprint saleman admitted that Sprint has dropped it's 4 G connection from the local tower and supposedly will be upgrading to 4 LTE in a month to 3 months... thanks for the warning! Can I get a discount to make up for the poor service?

Reception is poor and Spotty. Im lucky if my phone shows one full bar of reception. The signal fluctuates from 4g to 4g lte and this is a new device. I thought it was my previous phone, but now Im convinced its at&t's reception. I switched over from Metro PCS and T-Mobile and to me they were all equivalent in reception. One thing I do have to mention is that when I do get atleast 3bars of reception, the phone is super fast on data exchange and calls are very clear.
