Full 4G bars but no internet connection. Connects for about 20 seconds and drops again for hours.

If I have signal, it's only 3G. But everywhere else (burbs and further) I have amazing signal. But in the 2nd highest populated neighborhood in the 3rd most populated city in America... horrible.

Practically unusable for calls or data. Shows 4 / 4 bars, but calls are patchy and data basically doesn't work at all.

By far th worst service provider I've had thus far with very little explanation from Sprint as to why their service is so bad. I'm fed up with their service and is currently seeking another provider. What help is it for me to have a reasonable monthly fee for service that doesn't provide the very basic? I wouldn't recommend Sprint even if they try to entice you with "Low Cost Service".

Pros: Speeds are always fast and consistent for the most part in Bridgeport. Coverage is good. Cons: Very expensive, arrogant customer service.

I went from Cricket to Verizon not because of issues. I had a job advancement and I just wanted a better full signal and knowing it would be $$ a bit more. What a disaster. Drop calls everyday. No signal at work. I traveled on vacation and was charged some random travel bill. This was 5months in verizon. I went back to Cricket. Problems solved! No drop calls, internet works super well without getting your gigs drained. (For the same use with 1 Verizon gig and can do the same with a little less than 3gigs with Cricket. No difference of quality at all.

Decent service, when all else fails I just revert to Wifi Calling. I mean for the price I knew that service would be worse than AT&T. Overall I can't complain, except for when I am on 3G... like it's 2016 and I'm on 3G in the middle of the city!

Good reception on phone calls. Calls occasionally go to voice mail without phone ringing. Overall good experience both in Chicago and in several cities during travel using GPS and phone.
