I just moved from California. I have AT&T service.Was looking a less expensive no contract service.Used my existing AT&T phone to demo Cricket service.Was very impressed.What I found out from AT &T rep. Was Cricket uses same frequency and towers. JUST SAVED apx. $750.00 per year for same service.I not sure about you but saving money is a priority.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Boise / Meridian | Five Mile and Lake Hazel, Boise, ID 83709 |

I previously had Sprint and no coverage in my area. I've had almost NO issues with Verizon anywhere in town. From Boise to Idaho Falls almost constant reception.

We also live on a hill in Boise. The reception is terrible. Also Verizon advertises that we are in the strongest reception area and that we have 4G. I have never gotten 4G reception in Boise. False advertising?

The worst reception I have ever had anywhere. We live in town, on a hill, and I can see the towers. 75% of all calls get dropped. 4G is a myth here. The people in the Verizon stores have zero authority and think they are selling fashion accessories. Also cannot ever get through to customer service. Verizon is the most anti-customer service company I have ever seen.

I have used all carriers in this area and none of them are as good as T Mobile.4 to 5 bars all the time and data speeds that I've never had a problem with.the area that I work At Eagle and overland is the same excellent service not to mention the price T Mobile provides.I'm surprised to hear anybody having issues in the Boise area in a building it's understandable to have issues.

Our service with T-Mobile has been so incredibly disappointing we are literally counting the days until our contract is up. I can't begin to count the issues... dropped calls, texts won't send and recieve texts days after they were sent, CMAS won't work, phone calls won't send, people calling me can't get through, I don't get voice mails for days or never at all, data and calling won't work on Wifi, reception so limited and on and on and on. I have had to call several times to have the whole thing reset or whatever they do to restore texting to my phone. I know cell phone service can't be perfect but I would just like mine to work a majority of the time. As I said, incredibly disappointing experience.

Criminal, I have lived in parts of the country with the same service and it is fast. But here they charge the same rate and not a 20th of the service. I am sure the have fine print oozing out rear end to protect them but it is simply wrong.

The entire 83709 and southern portion of 83642 zip codes can be referred to as a giant roving dead spot. The only reason I have service at my house is because Sprint sent me an Air Rave device due to all my complaints. I have been with Sprint for 10 years and their coverage is getting worse, not better. I will be switching to a new provider in 6 months once my contract is up.

As a traveler coming to this region, I find The ATT service here abominable. I cannot access the 3G and must use its near-obsolete EDGE network. Eliminating all but the most simple of websites, precluding any video use whatsoever.

I have had Verizon, sprint, and cricket. None are perfect but T-MOBILE is hands down the worst. Even if you can find a place with coverage (5 bars) you will lose signal and get EMERGENCY CALLS only. This could last 2 minutes or an hour???? I just can't say enough bad about them.

My home, as well as where I work at Micron Technolog, gets very poor or non existant cell coverage. I have to use Wifi or I get almost no signal at all, despite both being in the middle of green zones.

I have pretty good reception some of the time, but only get 2G a lot of the time at home. My husband has trouble getting any reception at times in our home on his unlocked iphone.

awful reception nearly everywhere in Boise. data drops constantly, right in the middle of downtown, and at one of the biggest employers in the valley.

Using Solavie / T-Mobile, I have perfect reception and run 6mb / s to 18mb / s data download rates. Among best I have seen. Good job T-Mobile with 4g cell unlimited!

service is very poor or non existence, I am lucky to have one bar and have dropped calls almost every time, if not dropped then the call breaks up so bad that I might as well not even have service

At Micron if you go INSIDE with T-Mobile you will lose all signal. Go back outside and its full bars.
