Haven't seen more than 2 bars since moving to Tampa 3 months ago. Browser moves at AOL dial up speeds inside my apartment when webpages actually decide to load. Call reception is shotty at best. Today my girlfriend texted me while I was in the bathroom she could've etched out the message in stone before I got it. Cricket was great in New Orleans looks like Florida calls for a new carrier

Over the last several months, data reception in our has gone from poor to often non-functional in spite of having "2 bars." Phone service works but data service is awful. This is a rip off!

Y2K called and wants it’s cell coverage back. Sadly, in 2017, they have yet to solve Sprint’s minimal coverage in New Tampa. I’ve been here for 13 years and it hasn’t changed. Driving near County Line Road? Hope you don’t need to call anyone! Trying to call while in Publix? It would be easier to ask customer service to use a landline! Sprint seems to think New Tampa is still undeveloped. That was the case 20 years ago, not anymore. They can and must do better!

Other than how much it is to be with Verizon, coverage is really good. I work towards East Tampa and I don't have issues with reception over there. Coverage is better for me here in Carrollwood but I never had dropped calls or anything over there. Like I said, it's just how much plans are with Verizon that sucks.

I made the switch from Verizon to T-Mobile to try to save money. I was happy with everything about Verizon except their prices. I regret switching to T-Mobile because it has been nothing but dropped calls and poor reception. I never get service inside of any building. While driving there are dead zones all over the city of Tampa especially by the Veterans Expressway and throughout north Tampa. I use FaceTime audio for a lot of my calls so I suspected that was causing the reception issue but my family members who use regular calling have all of the same problems. We can't make phone calls inside of our homes. Somehow my data cap is reached when I'm not even halfway through the month. With Verizon I made the same amount of data last all month and then it would roll over any data I had left which meant I never got throttled. You get what you pay for. I NEVER had reception problems with Verizon.

This has been nothing but a terrible experience overall. Reception is spotty at best, even in the middle of a heavily populated area with multiple cell towers. The only way I can get reliable data is to connect to a WiFi, which defeats the purpose altogether for having a cell phone. This contract is not being renewed, as I look for other carriers that can at least carry a signal in a metropolitan area.

Never an issue until I moved to Tampa Palms near Freedom High School, no mobile data. I can't make phone calls and if I send a text it fails to send or sends hours later. Frustrating and annoying I am trying to find a carrier that works in this area.

Was with Verizon for 15 years here in the Bay Area before making the switch to Sprint which I have regretted daily ever since. Coverage is mediocre, calls drop if you're inside most buildings, data speeds are slow, and it gets worse when you leave the area. I travel for work several times a quarter and have had frequent issues in getting any reception at all and I've been in major cities (San Fran, St. Louis, DC, Houston, Raleigh-Durham, etc.). It's just disappointing. Top it all off with their customer service, especially in the stores... . I just tied to write a complete sentence about that for several minutes and I can't think of anything to say about it that is diplomatic or not horribly offensive. I'll be heading back to Verizon ASAP - they have excellent coverage dang near everywhere and inside buildings, killer data speeds, and solutions oriented customer service that makes you feel like your satisfaction is the one key that keeps their doors open every time. Save yourself the headaches with Sprint - just go with Verizon.
