we have to walk out of my home and to the street if I want to get any bars. then I get 3 at the max if the weather is OK. as much as the northside of Jax is growing you would think they would invest in more towers. calls are always dropped when driving on Lem Turner between i-295 and callahan. wouldn't recommend T-Mobile to anyone in this area.

Verizon

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Kernan | Atlantic, Jacksonville, FL 32225 |

Verizon has consistent and reliable coverage here in Jacksonville. Dropped calls simply do not happen when I had this service. I have tried Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, and then back to Verizon because Verizon simply had the best coverage out of those three. AT&T is great for its rollover plans, which has saved my wallet several times, but it's not cut out for reliability and I barely get reception inside my home.

Reception is non-existent inside any building on campus at all. Outside you get maybe 1 or 2 bars max. You have to literally leave campus to get any signal.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Southside | Ivey and Vicinity, Jacksonville, FL 32216 |

Generally have very good to perfect reception indoors and out, in automobiles, and even in the back of the dreaded Walmart Superstore and Sams. Occasionaly drops to 3 bars when I'm very close to a lot of computer equipment. Also get similarly good reception with our Nokia 6103s 6203, and Razer phones

I only get 2-3 bars, but the service is reliable and I never had any dropped calls. The service is generally good everywhere in JAX - indoor and outdoor. I noticed the quality of service is affected by the phone model you use. I get a very good signal with my very old Nokia, OK signal with Samsung T809, and not very reliable service with Motorola V180.

sure am glad my 2 year T-Mobile contract is almost up. never have been able to use the phone in my home and usually can not use it driving down lem turner between i-295 and callahan without having the calls dropped. T-Mobile should invest in putting up more towers on the northside of jax as this is the area of town that will be having the large population growth next.

I only get reception on the Naval Air Station on the edge of the base along US-17. I get great coverage everywhere else in Jacksonville, many other cities in Florida, and when I travel around the country. If you work at NAS, T-Mobile is not for you. Elsewhere, I would recommend it.

Dawsons Creek Subdivision in Argyle (past SR 23) has horrible reception. I'm lucky to get 1 bar and when I answer a call... then it drops it. Phones used is: a Razor (1 1 / 2 years old) and my husband uses a New PDA that he just purchased in January (purchased after service provider said to see about upgrading his phone (only 1 year old at the time) to get a better signal. SUCKER! Guess what, it didn't work.

Poor to no reception. Almost impossible inside. Have had phone reprogrammed. Drops calls continuously; at times powers up on other networks or on roaming repetitively. Sprint suc_ _ pretty badly.

I swore on my Cingular cell for years. When ATT took over I began swearing at my phone! I never had dropped calls and lousy reception until the exact week of the merger. After 5 years I am switching to another carrier. So long more (empty) bars!

When Cingular was Cingular we had great reception. As soon as they sold out to AT&T the phone service will not work in the house - unless I stand in my closet or go outside.

No outgoing service in home, has to go outside, into garage, or pation or to driveway, to make a call... this is ridiculous for the money that I pay each month, just insanely absurd...

I have had three Samsung SGH807D cell phones and my wife has had two Samsung SGH407D phones with AT&T. My wife and I get very poor service either at home or while I am at work aboard NAS Jacksonville Fl. We both suffer from frequent dropped calls or loss of service entirely. Even when we are traveling down the road we lose connection. When calling each other while I am at work and she is on the road we can not reach each other and even leaving a message sometimes takes several hours for that message to reach the other.

Nextel

This phone service is so unreliable! I never know when I will drop a call. So much for safety issues. I may have a signal at home and then it drops it with no warning. I can be talking to someone on the road to my home and the minute I get to my driveway, it's dropped. I cannot believe that Sprint has any customers anymore. Why do they say they are providing a service. It is inferior service and needs to be improved! What's funny though is that my husband is so loyal to this company! We have to go outside in the backyard if we want to take a call on our cell phones. It's not the phones-it's the carrier! Suckie Sprint!

Terrible. Same poor service from FL to VA. Can't believe our clients still want to use us since they might have to endure 4 to 6 dropped calls during any 10-20 minute conversation. Our contract is up and so is our 7 yr patronage to Nextel (now Sprint). FYI: service was not so great before Sprint bought it out, but now most dropped calls are because Sprint got greedy and oversold the capabilities of the limited towers that service Nextel. We are in construction and are joining the hundreds of contractors abandoning Nextel, especially since other plans now offer Push to Talk or phone only plans. Congrats Sprint--you pushed Nextel into the grave!

Sprint's reception is extremely substandard on the Southside of Jacksonville unless you are within a stones throw of a store (sometimes that does not help). I receive less than decent service at home and I roam at UNF. I cannot image roaming at a university with over 15,000 students. I truly believe Sprint does not have a clue.

Have lousey reception- which is a major problem since my cell phone is an important part of my business. Am thinking that it will be worth the $400 penalty for my husband's and my phone to get out of the contract.
