4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Scripps Ranch Bordering Poway | Near Water Tower on Spring Canyon @ Pomerado Rd., San Diego, CA 92131 |

Live in Scripps Ranch and I work in Poway. The only dropped calls I've ever had have been out in the country or in the mountains. Data speeds on T-Mobile LTE are super FAST! I've seen 30+Mbps downloads and uploads are routinely 20+ Mbps. Beats the crap out of Time Warner / Road Runner. Also, T-Mobile gives me the ability to have a wi-fi hotspot with no extra charge. Streams music without a hit to your data plan and gives me free texts and unlimited calls for $50 a month. Unlimited data even after you go over the 1 gig a month plan that I pay for. It's just much slower after that. Really happy with T-Mobile, and no, I don't work for them.

I can only get a faint signal within my apartment in the middle of Carmel Pacific Apartments. If you move away from the windows, then the call is dropped. Friends report that Verizon get good reception in the apartment, but Sprint and AT&T have terrible reception.

I switched from Verizon to Sprint (customer service) a few years ago, then from Sprint to T-Mobile (savings) this week, and so far I am very happy. Not only is my bill cheaper, but I get better reception in places that I didn't with either Verizon or Sprint. In my house, I get 4g LTE and 4 bars. I just use Wifi calling and data there anyways, but it's nice to know the reception is there. With both Sprint and Verizon, I was roaming... Also, in my work office I got a very weak 3G signal with Sprint, and 1-3 bars. With my T-Mobile S4, I get 4g LTE and 4-5 bars.

For years I used a TracFone and never had a dropped call. Ever since I upgraded to a Galaxy3 through Virgin Mobile I can't have a phone call without being dis connected. Pretty sure they use Sprints towers. I have no problems with internet connections..just constant dropped phone calls. Love the phone..hate the dropped calls.

I have been with T-Mobile for about 12 years and after about 6 months of moving into our new house our reception went from not great to horrible. I get one or two bars. Trying to use the internet is a joke. I have to sit in one room to get any kind of reception in my house. I immediately called when the reception got worse and T-Mobile refused to admit that something had changed although there were several other "open ticket" complaints. The rep then tacked my complaint onto another persons ticket. Nothing ever changed. They sent me two signal boosters that didn't do anything. Sometimes the signal booster shows it's not even picking up a signal. Every time I call they say "you should be getting excellent coverage". And if these guys tell me to turn my phone off and on or pull out the battery one more time I'm gonna loose it!

Purchased 5s one month ago. Reception dropped to 1X. Lte reception virtually impossible to receive. Got a $15 discount for one month. Little consolation for such poor continuous Sprint service.

1 bar, 2 bars or no bars... and 4G? Not even close. The network shows as "H" whatever that it is, it is slow. Im unable to use the PayPal point of sale credit card swiper for my small business because the connection is too slow. I often hold my phone up and move my arm around in an attempt to locate a better connection. I've lived in third world countries with faster networks. Disappointed and frustrated..

The old Sprint I started with business plan was "Quality so high you can hear a pin drop"', new business plan is "unlimited garbage for one low price". Looks like they got rid of those Pin guys.
