I'm currently at T-Mobile customer for about a year now and I would say T-Mobile was reliable and great. The voice was clear and I always get 4G LTE service.

Constant disconnected phone calls. Extender sent by Verizon to improve service. NOPE! New phone LG G2 sent to replace one I had. NO CHANGE! Need to pay for another phone such as LG G4 to try out is what Verizon said. Why should I? LG G2 has been recalled for a number of issues. So... .on to another carrier and phone. Will approach Sprint today to see what offers they have. I think if any problems with a phone persist, a different phone of comparable quality should be offered free of charge by a company. Especially when a phone has been recalled!

I have T-Mobile, originally from Wal-Mart. Bought an"older" model Samsung outright for $299. Works fine. Never had trouble with service. Originally paid $30 per month with limited voice. Upgraded to $40 for more voice. One of the cheaper carriers. Never had problems. Pretty happy with what I've got-- but I'm not a heavy user.

I used to have the old Cricket cell service which was good on Naval Base San Diego (NBSD), but was forced to upgrade to 4G service after AT&T bought out Cricket. Ever since then, service is extremely poor. 1-2 or NO bars while at Budwiser Brew House (Rec Center) in front of pier 2. Even with wifi, service is terrible. Every call gets dropped. Or never connects. I have a LG phone, which works excellent anywhere else in San Diego and Los Angeles Area. I used to get service while in Tijuana, 2-3 miles across the border, including La Playas (beach area) and Otay Tijuana side... but since switching to cricket 4G, I lost all mexico service, which I used to use my cell while inside mexico with no additional charge. Now, I have to go to a café in mexico everytime I want to make a call using LINE or WHATSAPP, but no longer can make normal calls using my cell connection.. I have to use WIFI. But biggest complaint is not having service while on 32nd St. Naval Base. while playing pool, eating, or using the computers at the Base REC Center...

4G LTE pretty much everywhere, customer service kills AT&T and Verizon. Unlimited data, I strongly recommend Sprint. They are a great company and will treat you well.

I live in the densely populated Pacific Beach, where you imagine service should be excellent. I get 1 bar normally, 2 on a good day, 3 on the very rare occasion. My direct neighbors have T-Mobile and get at least 20 faster 4g (according to Speedtest, I get ~2MB / s, they get up to 80MB / s or so). Ditch it.

Base of Cowles mountain. I can find only one antenna serving my neighborhood, from 1 to 3 bars as the wind blows it seems. I've complained for years, and its never gotten any better. friends with AT&T get even worse reception.

I have AT&T for two years now and I have never had a problem with them as far as reciption goes. I had an iPhone 5s and now a iPhone 6 Plus and the coverage is excellent on both devices. The download and uploads speeds are extermely fast. I always have LTE coverage at home with 4-5 bars at all times. I use to have Verizon and when I did in this area. My calls would drop and sometimes my text messages would fail and not send. Some of the time in this area when I had Verizon my text messages would come in delayed because of the recpition. Switching to AT&T was honestly the best choice and I strongly recomend it if you live in the clairemont mesa / balboa avenue area just because it is reliable and you would have the best service 24 / 7.

In outside sales. Use Verizon. Never had a dropped call or spotty reception. Always reliable in San diego. Believe me, I use 13gb of data oer month and make hundreds of phone call. It's always done me good. work will no longer pay cell bill so I need to put in my name. Considering options and I think I will stick with verizon.
