Switched from Verizon. Still on the fence. Used to get 4g at times with Big Red but there's no such thing in my area with Sprint. Calls and texts seem fine over the network but don't even think about trying to watch a YouTube video. Not sure if the $30 a month in savings is gonna be worth it. We'll see.

I constantly lost signal and calls inside my home. Text messages were sometimes hours late.

Until this Summer we had reliable service. Sprint has upgraded their towers. Now all calls drop when showing 5 bars of service and it always shows 5 bars of service. While talking to Sprint on a landline they have blamed my phone for the issue and they have called me a liar. Texts are seldom received, or if received they arrive late. I have been a customer for 7 years here and I will be switching carriers, taking Sprint to small claims if need be.

For over a decade we have been Sprint customers. In this area (at home, work, and most of town) we have received reliable, if not always speedy, cell service. Mid-year Sprint ‘upgraded’ the local towers. This ‘upgrade’ now means that the vast majority of our attempted incoming and outgoing calls fail, partial or no texts go through, and we show great service until the very moment we attempt to use it at which point the reception drops to – no bars, radio error, or roaming with no bars. During this time frame I have spent 218 hours ‘chatting’ with CRs. We are always promised a fix by date and ensured that our service will be even better. Now, being fed up, I have requested that our early termination fee on an Evo 4G and Blackberry Curve be waived. We need to call a number to do this. After attempting 96 calls and receiving Voice Mail responses only I finally got through… and the call dropped. An entire month of saying, just call this number and all will be well, we still must pay for a ‘service’ that is not being delivered. After 10 years of loyalty my wife and I have been rewarded with frustration, repeated broken promises, drivel for service, and MANY hours wasted. The next step will be small claims court. Visiting family and friends have likewise commented on how bad the service has become in the area along with the strange behaviors it now exhibits. Random neighbors walking on the street have even started conversations with us regarding Sprint- these are people that we’ve never spoken to other than a short greeting. Phones Tested HTC EVO 4G,Blackberry Curve, Samsung Galaxy II, iPhone 4s, Samsung Galaxy III, LG Optimus, Samsung Restore, and a few others that we did not log

I had terrible luck with AT&T anywhere south of 30, and 9 of 10 calls dropped no matter where I was in Valparaiso. No luck in Morgan or Hebron.

Really good reception in Valparaiso area. I work near the three-way intersection and even outside of this area the reception is outstanding. Walmart seems to be a problem for a lot of carriers, but I get pretty good service inside there too.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Walmart, Valparaiso, IN 46383 |

The problem with Cingular and T-Mobile at Walmart is that there isn't a GSM tower close enough to emit a signal that goes through the building. Sprint, a CDMA carrier, has 4 bars in the parking lot, 3 near the front of the store, and zero at the back (but still can make calls without static or fading). Definitely go with Sprint if you want to use your phone at Walmart in Valparaiso.

Just got this new service, my cell phone / voice reception fades out when I'm at my house - sounds like the call is going to drop. I'm on a 14 day trial period so we'll see. Had Sprint at the Kemil beach - no reception at all.

Reception weaker recently at my home on west-side of town. Inside my house, I'm only getting 2 sometimes 3 bars, and I have many dropped calls. I'm only a couple blocks from the tower at Yellowstone and Lincolnway.

Good reception at the park. Calls sound clear and do not drop. Cingular also works well in this area.

I have 3 bars right now at my house by the City Garage off Rt. 30, but no bars near Wal-Mart. On Lincolnway running West to 130, I get good reception, but taking 149 North, I lose reception in South Haven / Valpo right before 700 N. T-Mobiles comment was "Where is South Haven?"

0-2 bars a great deal of the time and dropped calls are common. Have been traveling south to Demotte and Hebron lately and have no service. Can't use in my house without going outside.

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Almost Anywhere In Valparaiso., Valparaiso, IN 46385 |

If I'm lucky I'll have one or two bars of service most anywhere in Valparaiso. I have a Valpo number and I can't even use my phone there. Out by Rogers-Lakewood park I get absolutely no service. Compass Pointe apartments, also no service. Around Walmart, you guessed it, no service. (I'm just naming off places where I know for a fact I've had no reception, and continue to have no reception.) Even on Lincolnway and Campbell (both being main roads) my reception is terrible, if I have any at all. I know it's not my phone, because my friends with Cingular have the same issues. I don't understand. It's so frustrating. I thought maybe with the merger between AT&T and Cingular my problems with bad reception would be solved... but it certainly hasn't happened yet.

Well, reception is better than it used to be. I used to not be able to use my phone in my house but now I can. However I still have to go outside to get reception sometimes. Head just 1/2 block East and reception is perfect.
