It seems that everyone has problems indoors. Has it occurred to any of you that the carriers are not to blame? I'm a Canadian who bought in Sarasota six years ago and soon learned that my entire neighborhood could be seen going outside to make and receive cell calls. The reason? Houses in Florida are built with steel frames or concrete blocks. Up north, we build with wood and brick. Steel and concrete interfere with the signal. If you carrier suggests a signal booster, they are trying to help you -- not gouge you. Of course, you're welcome to buy a house made of wood, but it will probably blow away with the next big hurricane.

Reception for T Mobile Metro PCS is Awesome! 4G LTE Data is Wicked fast! I'm receiving on Average 79.7 meg Download Speeds on Speed Test. The new T Mobile Metro PCS is Incredible! They just turned off their MetroPCS Towers and are Farming them to the New T Mobile service starting two weeks ago and Reception, Speed and signal throughout Sarasota and everywhere I travel is Great and never been Better! Way to go T Mobile Metro PCS you are the Best and getting way Better Every Day! I was a Loyal Former Verizon Wireless Post Paid Customer for over 10 years and getting Raped by their Crazy Rate plans with poor LTE coverage speeds so I first tried Metro PCS and then Fell in Love With them as a Wireless Provider and then Ported all 3 of my Lines of Service and made the Switch to T Mobiles Metro PCS $50.00 Period Unlimited Plan and now have Blazing Fast unlimited 4G LTE Data for only $50 a month taxes and federal fees included no surprises! My monthly phone bill is $50.00 Period. I have 3 lines of Service so they give me $5.00 off each line making it only $45.00 a line for Truly Unlimited 4G LTE ! My Highest 4G LTE Data Speed Test to date just two days ago was 97.9 megs Download. I can prove my phone speed tests. They've always been great with MetroPCS and now they are Unbelievably Awesome with the Merger of the two Companies Towers and signals! One of the Best Features Metro PCS has always had and still has is a True working Full Caller ID for outgoing and Incoming Calls. It works just like a Landline Caller ID and gives you the Name and Number of all Incoming calls and not just the ones saved in your contacts. It also sends out your Name and Number on all Outgoing calls as well. With MetroPCS True caller ID you always know who is calling you Name and Phone Number so you never have to guess who is Calling you or who the Number belongs to ever again. That is an awesome feature that no one else offers! I am Over The Top Happy with Metro PCS and will Never Go Back to Verizon Wireless or any other Wireless Company!

Iphone 5c worked fine for the first few months and then would not work at all inside my home. I have to go outside anytime I get a call so it won't be dropped. Verizon said they would be happy to sell me a booster for $250. FAT CHANCE.

Impossible to send or receive calls unless going outside. Was told I could buy a box to boost reception--my cost -$175! Cannot believe they don't provide better reception.

I have no reception inside my condo. I have very limited reception outside. I have to talk outside even in bad weather, not to mention I hate talking about personal stuff when the neighbors can hear.
