Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Downtown, Colorado Springs, CO 80920 |

Have been dropping calls with Sprint for the last week. Sprint tells me they are upgrading their computer system. They didn't think they needed to tell their clients. Very poor customer service. Thinking about leaving

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Academy and Austin Bluffs, Colorado Springs, CO 80917 |

Near my home by Academy and Austin Bluffs, I get good reception - not full strength but good enough that calls are rarely dropped. Like all carriers, signal strength can go from strong to gone over just a few hundred feet - it's a relic of all the small little hills scattered around town. Signal strength is strong at UCCS, but calls often drop when crossing the bridge at Union on Austin Bluffs.

Very frustrating! I've been with AT&T since 1991 (started out as CellOne, went to AT&T, Cingular and then back to AT&T). I have always loved AT&Ts customer service. I have always loved AT&Ts coverage! Rarely had an issue that wasn't expected - i.e., you know their weak spots and know to be off the phone when you get there. I moved about a mile away a little over a year ago and have had trouble with the service ever since. I have a MicroCell in my home / office and changed phones as well. My iPhone 3GS was great but they blamed it so I went to the iPhone 4S. I love these phones AND it wasn't the phone. I am dropping calls two and three times while on the phone with clients, etc. even when I am not in my home by the M-Cell. The M-Cell strengthened my signal so I didn't have to go outside to get a good signal but I am still having issues here and elsewhere. Sounds like they are all this way. It has changed in the past year. Sorry! Yes, I choose to live here and I haven't had the issues I have experienced since the Waldo Canyon Fire last year. Don't know what happened, but something's changed.

Had Sprint for 10+ years now and loved it... . till about a month ago cant hardly make phone calls, and not only do we not have 4g yet but the 3g has been getting slower and slower to where its barely even useable now. I have contacted Sprint customer service by phone and made complaints on Sprint community but I just get the same old crap about my phone is the problem... . then why is it mine and everybody else I know who has Sprint said the service sucks all of the sudden... why cant they just be honest and tell us whats going on? Maybe switching soon.

Verizon

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Parliament | Lexington, Colorado Springs, CO 80920 |

Verizon has terrible coverage inside and outside my home in this area. It jumps between 3G and 4GLTE and the signal is usually 1 bar on either one. When I'm on the phone, making a voice call which is neither 3G or 4G the other party cuts in and out and it's hard to understand what they're saying. They say the same about my signal. I'll be contacting them to drop my contract after I've built up enough complaints with them.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Cimarron Hills | Palmer Park and Peterson, Colorado Springs, CO 80915 |

Just moved to the Springs from Dallas about a year and a half ago - there AT&T often dropped calls where I lived on my iPhone 4, and I thought it was the phone. Moved up here and used my iPhone 4 about 6 months and never had a dropped call. Then decided last spring to get a Samsung Galaxy Note II - had it for 2 weeks, couldn't get service on internet or calls still with AT&T... I took it back and got an iPhone 5 and now I get calls and keep calls without dropping and the internet is flawless out and about. What I would like to know is if there are any services that are better once you get out of the city... we go out camping a lot and it seems other people with Verizon have better service farther into the mountains, etc... is that just a tower thing? Whomever happens to have a tower closest to the area but it could be any of them or none of them? Would love to hear if anyone has great service with any carrier or any particular phone especially west of here in the Buena Vista area...

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Woodmen / Academy Intersection, Colorado Springs, CO 80918 |

I live in the center of town at the intersection of Woodman and Academy. I never have more than 3 bars, usually have 2, and right now I do not have reception at all. Lately every phone conversation I have that lasts more than 10 minutes, the call is dropped. I stopped at the T-Mobile store right down the street and also called them... they say they don't see any problems. FYI if you ever travel through Montana, North Dakota or Wyoming with T-Mobile don't plan on having reception at all!

T Mobile has the worst signal strength.I got sucked in by their commercials faster and everywhere B.S. if they would put the money they put into their commercials into their signal I could see them being good.I've lived in Colorado Springs for over 20 yearsand this cell phone service is the worst in town.

Have been with T-Mobile for 10 years. Since we moved to Southeast Colorado Springs serve has been aweful and have been considering switching to another celluar company but after ready these reviews I'm more confused then ever as to who has the best service. Sounds like their all lousy.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Near Patty Jewett Golf Course, Colorado Springs, CO 80907 |

Just moved back to Colorado Springs and have Sprint. Our family cannot use our cell phones inside the house, no matter where we are. We have to go outside to talk on phone, and even then it's only 2 bars at most. My friend was here for 2 days, has T-Mobile and her phone worked find indoors. Called Sprint, of course they say everything is fine with their coverage, must be our phones. Whatever, my phone worked great in Virginia 2 weeks ago. Guess I will have to switch in a few months when contract is up.

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Fort Carson, Colorado Springs, CO 80913 |

I mostly work in the hospital on Fort Carson and there is absolutely no coverage there. After going outside the signal improves, until you drive to highway 115 where it will drop your call. Unless I have an unfettered view in a generally Northern direction, my service sucks. I may have to switch to Sprint since they recently placed boosters in our facility (at their own expense, not their customers). Guess the government doesn't care much for AT&T and won't let them onto Military Installations. Unfortunate.

I don't understand how people complain about cell service? Since when has it ever been 100% reliable? For those of you complaining about no reception, blame yourself for deciding where you live. First off, HOA's never allow towers to be built anywhere near their subdivisions so that applies to almost everything north of Constitution. For those of you who decided to live near the mountains, on top of ridges, in secluded areas... .well there's your sacrifice. Cell towers don't give off this magical reception that penetrates through thick trees, hills, or bends all sorts of ways to get to where your house is located. There is a reason why Colorado Springs was ranked second worst city as far as cell phone reception is concerned. I have AT&T and I do get a dropped call here and there but it is to be EXPECTED! If you don't get good service then switch! All carriers are going to have their good spots and bad so obviously shopping around will get you the best service... and when I say shopping I mean shop coverage NOT prices. You get what you pay for.

With AT&T and Galaxy S3's my wife and I are being told the towers no longer work with our phones. We only have the option for 911 calling and only have web access if connected to wifi. AT&T says all the towers are down and there is no ETA on the fix. They also will not credit us for time down. iPhone 4 I gave my father works fine a block away. What gives?

Priced way to high approximately 70% of calls drop or need to be dialed multiple times to get a tower to connect. Voice mails don't show up for days sometimes. Customer service is non existent.

Why are there no cell towers on the north and west side of I-25 in Colorado Springs? Cell coverage is spotty at best all over the hills and valleys below the Waldo Canyon Burn.

Verizon

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | UNIVERSITY PARK, Colorado Springs, CO 80918 |

Verizon has dead spots in University Park. There is a directional tower on the bluffs above UCCS that interferes with another tower. Phones will show 5 bars but drop 99% of calls. Verizon took over 3 months to make this conclusion even though there were other reports of problems in this area. They lied, cheated, and stole every step of the way.
