This has been an ongoing problem since June 2012. Have spent many many hours on the phone with them complaining about the problem with Sprint service, the calls keep dropping so I have to call back and get someone else and start over. The Rockford store knows about the problem but Sprint maintains that there is no problem. They sent me 2 different airaves and they can't get them to work correctly either. I can't be the only one having this problem.

I haven't had barely any problems with my cell phone reception in Rockford or Belvidere. Chrysler in fact receives the best reception from AT&T. All the other carriers don't receive any bars inside the building. You will receive one or two with AT&T.

When I first signed on with Sprint I never had dropped calls (except on Springcreek between Alpine and N. 2nd... but thats been the norm for everybody). Now I get 3 or 4 dropped calls a day... often more. I called and complained and Sprint said they were upgrading the system to 4G... but I haven't seen that yet. I think I'll be talking to my State Senator and State Reps. If Sprint feels it's ok to lie about their service maybe a law that requires accuracy by carriers needs to be enacted.

Sprint customer for many years and the signal in downtown Rockford, IL is getting worse by the day. Used to get good 3G speeds but it has slowed to a crawl in the last year. Call signal has also gotten progressively worse.

In my house I get about 2 bars. I get dropped calls occasionally when I go in my basement. When I'm on U.S. Route 20 I get awesome signal. I was even watching shows on my Netflix app with 3g. Whenever 4g comes out in rockford for Sprint I'm sure Sprint will own Rockford.

I use Sprint as my only phone and got NO service in my house. I complained to Sprint hard enough and they sent me "free of charge" there AirRave signal booster. My phone signal and Internet is blazing fast. Other than that, Ive had Verizon..TOO expensive, and there service is NO better than Sprint. Thats MY opinion!

Had AT&T 10 years, no (at or near home), to poor connection, bought new phones, 10% better. Fought with them and DID get out of contract! It took several supervisors to get it done but I mentioned I had to drive several miles to get a connection (almost always). Have had Verizon for 7 years and NO problems.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | East State | South Perryville, Rockford, IL 61108 |

I live one block South of E. State between Perryville and Bell School. According to the AT&T map I'm in a "Best Reception" area and I can often see 5 Bars in the house, yet I have so many dropped calls I end-up calling back the caller on our land line. If I sit and watch the bars on the phone they will go from 5 bars to 2 then 4 to 0 and back up to 5 bars. Just for the aggravation I completed a full 20 minute conversation with my sister to see how often it would drop the call. It dropped 6 times in the 20 minutes. I have had AT&T for many years and started getting dropped calls about 2 years ago but it was not all the time. It got worse and worse until I "up graded" our old phones for new thinking I would have better luck with a 3G phone. The new phones seemed a little better but my home reception only became shoddier. I find the service so bad now I am canceling AT&T, paying the ETF on 2 phones and moving to another carrier. Why should I or anyone else pay the high premium cost of AT&T for sub-standard service.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | 15th Ave. | South Main St., Rockford, IL 61104 |

Inside my home I receive 3 bars of service. Inside my basement I receive 2 bars of service. Outside of my home I receive 3-4 bars of service. I have been with ATT since February 2011 and thus-far have had very little to be upset with. I have an ATT WiFi Hot Spot in my home and only subscribe to the ATT 200MB service and have yet to go over the 200MB on the 3G / 4G (H+) network and speaking of never going over, I have never gone over my monthly minutes and am accumulating Roll-Over minutes. Does the service work everywhere? Does anybody's? If you answer yes, then you know you are kidding yourself. When the acquisition is completed with ATT / T-Mobile, which will also include i-Wireless, the GSM network in the U.S. will be the largest 3G / 4G networks in the U.S. beating out VZW and Sprint. New sites are going up weekly for ATT, and I am certain for other carriers as well. If you do not like your carrier, then simply switch to one that provides you with the service you want and or need. I for one am with ATT and thus far am 95% happy even after 90 days into my two-year contract. I would be happier if my employer would strike a deal with ATT for a monthly discount, especially since ATT has a tower adjacent to where I am employed.

We were not able to have any reception within the house. If we wanted to make a call, we had to go outside. We didn't know we would receive a phone call until our voicemail would tell us we missed a call because the phone never rang
