Coverage was good up until this last month. Toggles between 1 and 2 bars. Drops calls and just about everyone I talk to complains about not being able to hear me.

Constantly experiencing dropped calls. The problem has been going on for a number of months. No cell phone service at all at work - other people don't have the same problem with their carrier. No internet service - unless I use wi-fi.

Sprint has very patchy network, not as promised when I signed up. Please beware of that. Customer service is very bad. For instance, I couldn't access my account online and Sprint customer service gave me the run around so I did all transactions over the phone even though that's not what I wanted. I wanted an upgrade to an iPhone 6 and my previous contract could not count towards it, bear in mind I would be paying the same amount that I did for the 4S and it would require to sign another 2 yr contract..considering the bad service I'd had, I finally decided I'd had enough and skipped the network but they still gave me grief, customer service asked me why I needed my account information when I needed to transfer over to another carrier-something other networks would give to the customer, they gave me grief with my final bill talking about it will take them 5-7 business days to send it out even after requesting two weeks earlier for it, so altogether it took them 3 wks to send a piece of paper..even snail mail is not that slow! The customer service reps were rude too, I'd ask for something and they'd ramble on about something else trying to evade my question hoping I'll forget. Hello! I'm not a toddler you can distract momentarily. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this network to anyone, it only gets worse!

Calls seem to work fine, but I don't make many of those. Texts can be slow to send. Data coverage is often very bad, but it depends on the time of day and day of the week. The worst is weekday afternoons when the largest amount of people are in Downtown Minneapolis. There doesn't even need to be a special event going on--just the normal amount of people will cause data to drop out. The data network often goes down to 3G level and sometimes doesn't work at all. However, when fewer people are Downtown, such as weekends, evenings, and early in the morning, then the data works fine.

Bad reception for 5 months, drops every other phone call. Of the calls that go thru the other end says they can't make out my words. Called Verizon a few times and just hung with a supervisor. He confessed that it has to do with the new stadium and will not resolve until construction ends. He said the City of MPLS is at fault. Further he said many people have the same problem. I told him they cannot charge for a service they cannot provide, probably illegal. He said they will not give any credit for lack of service period and further he gave me an address if I would like to have my lawyer contact them. WOW. I'm thinking of doing it.

Weak-ish signal in basement, but calls rarely drop. Have experiences missed calls due to reception. Upstairs is far better. Data is typically pretty fast. I work in Golden Valley (394 and 100) and don't have any reception issues either. However, Roseville and West St. Paul are atrocious for data (i.e. no connection whatsoever).

I get around 40-70mbps down at my apartment. While T-Mobile is not the best out in the country, in the city, they do awesome!

6 months of dropped calls on business cell line, can't take the BS lies and double talk by Customer Care. Make some room Verizon. Sprint has Absolute worst all around service ever, I've had cell service with Sprint for 17 years, no bill credit, no forgiveness on early termination nothing nada zip. Sprint should be shut down forever. CLASS ACTION SUIT! Minneapolis Metro Area freaking blows donkey balls. We have a shared plan with 5 lines, each phone on average costs $450.00 and the monthly bill is $330.00 per month we've been paying that for over 5 years prior to that I had unlimited everything and 3 lines and my bill was close to $400 per month paid that for about 7 years in the beginning I paid by the minute in the late 90's early 2000's my bill was consistently $400 to $600 per month, over the past 17 years I've paid Sprint close to $50,000 for cell service what a crock! What the hell are they doing with all that cash blowing it their noses. I pray the Feds step in and make them refund everyone's money since last October.

Enough! Sprint is downright terrible. Months of excuses of upgrading towers 4-5 dropped calls PER DAY I live in the middle of the city, yet can't get reception in my house or around it. I switched to Verizon and had zero reception issues in the same spots. Don't believe anything the reps tell you, the problem with Sprint will not be getting better any time in the near future. Instead of spending money sponsoring Nascar events, why don't you spend that money and give rebates to the customers you've been robbing for over a year.

Sprint is unusable downtown! Each time I call customer service for an update on the so-called 'tower upgrades', they tell me all will be fixed in (then they tell me a date 2 months out)... never fails! Today I'm canceling.. enough is enough! Sprint... You are dead to me! Dropped Calls... Check No Data... Check Clueless Customer Service... . Check Rude Customer Service... .. Check Dead to Me?... .. Check!

I have had T-Mobile for 2 years now and have had no issues with reception or data. I typically avg are 26 down. I stay in the greater twin cities area and there for the most part is no problem. They have a dead spot few and far between. The issues is when you live the heavily populated areas but I don't so, for where I spend my time T-Mobile is great.

Sprint customer service is awful. They have been lying to me about the "tower repairs" since October. Supervisors are worse than the phone banks - living in a world on denial. Guess they think we are all stupid and won't dump them. So very wrong! So sick of the dropped calls, crackling, and cutting out. I live one mile from a tower and can't get consistent service. Terrible, horrible, awful. Service is worthless.

Sprint is absolutly terrible! Anyone looking to get a phone, do not waste your money with this company, always loosing connection, no service, not getting texts or calls for a couple days. Same problems each month, also terrible customer service! The workers do not help at all, and do not show any concern with my phones problems. I cant wait til the xontract is up, definently going to verizon, the only reliable network that has never let me down in the past.

I have US Cellular and have almost never had a problem with finding coverage of at least a minimum status, even when going to school in PA I could call and send / receive texts and emails from inside and outside any building I wanted to. Now that I moved to Minneapolis I completely lost all tower. I know I was in roaming but now my phone won't even do that, all it says is SOS instead of tower bars, and all I can do is make emergency calls from it! Clearly, you cannot have US Cellular in the Twin Cities.

Sprint's network is an absolute joke, as is their customer service. Beware! They lie. They are rude. Their answer to every problem is that "The network is being upgraded." It's been almost two years now. Biggest load of crap I've ever been handed in my life. I honestly hate them and will throw a party the day they go out of business. We are filing with the MN Attorney General's office and switching to Verizon; Sprint is a clown show run by lying crooks that would've been run out of town by an angry mob back in the day.

I have had pretty good luck with T-Mobile throughout the twin cities. Bad data coverage at work in Bloomington (494 and Hwy. 100), but otherwise I've been pretty happy. In general I've had good luck. Any issues have been data signal strength. I've never had issues with dropped calls. Friends who visit with Sprint (and I think Verizon too) have much more trouble getting reception at my house).

Terrible / awful / horrendous / are you kidding me it's so effing bad kind of data service in downtown Minneapolis. You want to do a quick google search? good luck getting a result back within any reasonable time(if you are lucky), because most likely you will get something similar to 'could not connect to internet' message. Stream music without constant stop and go? haha--u make me laugh. Despite all their promises and there constant 'working on network upgrade' messages, I don't even pretend to understand how the service can be so bad in the heart of downtown. Should it not be common sense that you plan for heavier traffic in areas like these? Is a 2 month old in the charge of planning / designing / deployment / service quality? (Apologies to all 2 month old everywhere). Why the heck am I paying oodles of money for this kind of bs service? bcos, unfortuntaly, Sprint from a monetary perspective, does offer a decent value (relatively speaking, compared to what is availble to us here in the U.S.). And there are areas where service has become usable, and even has some 4G here and there. But the whole thing with Sprint... my goodness, their network is just poopier than my 2 year old's dirtiest of the dirties diaper you can think of after a thaksgivig meal. And I am stupid, cos here I am, still waiting for their promised 'network improvement coming soon' bs. It's all my fault, really.

Sprint in the last year has became the worst phone company around. Twice now I have contacted Sprint customer care complaining about my service to which they say they are upgrading the towers. I was infomred twice that I would receive a follow up phone call within 24-48 hours. 1 week later and I'm still waiting for that phone call. Almost every call is dropped, friends say they texted me and show me they did, but I never get the text and Sprint customer care is poor. I am paying the early termination fee and going to Verizon. Everyone should join me in dropping Sprint as they SUCK! P.S. I was a Sprint customer for 13+ years so it's not like anyone can say I had a bad day...
