I just left tmo recently... .. their data is fairly faster then my Sprint 3g service I'm getting around springs cuz 4g is spotty... ..tmo is good signal but bad voice. AT&T is iffy too but spotty and expensive.. if I had to choose I'd get a high end 4g android from tmo and keep them..

Cellphone works great everywhere but a quarter mile from my home in any direction, so will have to switch carriers if I want to get rid of my land line.

Terrible reception. Had to drive up to Walgreens parking lot to take care of a service issue with my land line, which I didn't want to begin with but had to get because Verizon's service at my house was so bad. All other providers have to be better than Verizon in my area. Just another reason why I will be looking for another carrier once my contract is up. Bye bye Verizon.

Att has terrible coverage in this area. Really surprises me since this is in the city. What's worse, they plain don't care.

Worst service ever! I work from home and up until two months ago, I had no issues with Sprint. Now it seems nearly all my calls are being dropped. Needless to say I'm extremely frustrated with Sprint and will definitely cancel their service contract unless they take the initiative (after my repeated phone calls) and get this problem fixed.

I have reception in the basement bathroom where probably the exhaust pipe acts as some sort of antenna but that's about it. There are a few spots in the kitchen.

Sprint pretty much sucks here in this location. Poor to no reception would not dare answer a call because I will loose the call, voice mails are not delivered to phone. Come on, it's 2011!

poor reception at home in apartments even though coverage map says it should be good in this area. almost no reception at all at work, where again, coverage map says it should be best / good. dropped calls, calls don't come through, voicemail comes in an hour later. texting can't send if call is trying to come through, but the call doesn't show. Calls get diverted to voicemail if texting. VERY frustrating for business. Considering changing service providers- looks like Sprint and Verizon both have better coverage for the areas I live and work in, but don't know if their coverage maps might be as inaccurate as AT&T's

No service at work or home. Reception went to bad to worse! Not sure what to do at this point. We have two I phones, no land Line. Had Sprint before and it was reasonable. Basically, the phones are useless now. Called customer service, no resolve yet! Phone cut out even with them.

I don't know why a lot of people are having trouble with Verizon, I've been just about everywhere in the Springs and Verizon reception is great! I have never lost reception. The only place I lose reception is at the Air Force Academy on the 2nd floor of my dormitory, which is under ground level in a reinforced concrete building by the mountains anyways.

Kept getting "call failed" and dropped calls on both my wife's and mines Iphone 4's last couple months and couldn't even make calls last week from that location or around town. Have a year left and willing to pay the "early termination fee" Signed up with Verizon and two new Iphone 4's, hopefully the service will be better. Verizon has a trade in program depending on how old and what condition your Iphone 4 is in. (enough to pay for the early termination fee). Folks I've talked to have had no real problem with phone calls on their Verizon Iphone (just the rare occassion) Hey, I know the technology isnt perfect but really ATT network seems to have only gotten worse over time... plus Verizon is bringing 4G LTE service out much faster than ATT (already in alot of major cities) and its coming to Colorado Springs by beginning of next year. The next version of Iphone will probably have 4G LTE. I opted for the current Iphone 4 because I needed a phone now. I'll just wait for the time I can upgrade to a Iphone with 4G LTE (Android phones a little to buggy for my taste) at least I should be able to make a basic phone call with it! So if basic phone call capability is important to you don't let the whistle and bells cloud your decision on choosing a phone.

My call even got dropped while talking to AT&T Customer Service! I have to get a new phone now, but I absolutely Refuse to sign a new 2yr contract with At&T! They lie on their complete coverage ads! But it's looking like all cell service companies are like politicians..they all lie and it's a choice of the lesser of the evils.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Research Blvd. | Lexington Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80920 |

We have 2 Verizon smart phones and 2 Verizon internet lines at a cost of $225 / month. The reception is always 0-1 bars at our home (calls are almost always dropped whether sending or receiving, internet often returns a message of "Servor cannot be found"), inside or outside, though the service people try to blame it on my house construction. The only solutions Verizon offered were to buy a $250 extender / repeater or to cancel service. The problem with canceling service is I can't return the Verizon-locked devices. Friends with different service providers have the same problem in our home. Why are companies allowed by the FCC to advertise one thing and provide such abysmal service?

Switched from Alltel to AT&T by AT&T purchase of Alltel properties in our previous area. Although Alltel did not have towers in our new area, (Colorado Springs), we were using either Sprint or Verison towers while here - no reception issues. Now very questionable reception at my house. People have tried calling my wife on her cell phone multiple times, some giving up, some finally getting through. I have trouble calling from my home but get good reception at work (Garden of Gods and Forge). This is only day two on AT&T, not sure we'll stay with them. Contract runs out 1-Jun-11, now exploring options. Suggestions welcome.

If you are near the intersection of Powers and Fountain don't even try to use your phone in doors. It says I have 3 to 4 bars but can't connect to my data network and I'm not receiving calls.

This is a trouble spot for AT&T, not sure about Verizon. Coverage is very good here on Sprint. There is no signal at all here behind Ute Valley Park on AT&T. Haven't had a dropped call yet on Sprint.

The phone reports decent coverage here in Northgate where I live, usually 4 / 5 or 5 / 5 bars. However, ever since the iPhone came along we get dropped calls absolutely all the time. For a period of time in the summer of 2010 we would probably drop 1 out of 2 calls within the first minute, or often just be unable to dial out at all (connection error). AT&T reportedly made some network improvements last fall to address the problems, and now it's maybe 1 out of 5 calls are dropped. I'm tired of competing with the stupid iPhone for just having enough bandwidth to make a silly voice call. We're leaving as soon as we can. I believe that there is a Sprint tower about a mile west of us at I-25 and roughly mile marker 155, and no iPhone bandwidth hogs on Sprint. Also, there is zero coverage on Centennial about half a mile north of 30th all the way around Ute Valley Park to Eagleview middle school.
