4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Train Depot, Boise, ID 83705 |

Works everywhere I've needed it so far. Has the bonus of offering free wifi calling so if you ever need a boost to your coverage, jump on wifi. You have to be sure to turn the feature on first though. It's not default turned on on your phone.

Had cell service for almost 3 years with a booster ($1000.00 cost). Then a couple of weeks ago the service went away. Found out Verizon lost the lease on the tower we were bouncing off when ATT bought the tower lease out from under Verizon. Too bad ATT has to undercut Verizon as we will have to change providers due to this and we like Verizons coverage when we travel.

We have had Verizon for about 11 years. Their customer service was awful at first but has become really good the past 2 or 3 years. The reception on my iphone4 and previously on the flip phones has been great.

I travel all over Ada and Canyon Counties for work and Verizon gets good coverage. I like the fact that I can get coverage on the ski lift in McCall or Bogus Basin too. It costs a lot more but is worth it.

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.
