Sprint

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | College Hill Rd., Oxford, MS 38655 |

Just moved to Oxford. I live 2 miles from campus on College Hill Rd and have NO service at all. Spent 30 min on the phone with Sprint and all they can do is send a couple engineers to the area to look into the problem...

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | North Lamar / Old Hwy. 7, Oxford, MS 38655 |

I was a prior AT&T customer until I switched to Verizon over two years ago. I was sick of the dropped calls and no signal. With Verizon, it's rare that I don't have a signal. I think I've managed to find myself without coverage maybe twice in two years versus near daily with AT&T.

I have Sprint and yes the signal bar is one or two but I never had a call drop or any service problems. With an Evo 4g you cant go wrong! O and its rooted Free! WIFI Tethering!

Virgin Mobile

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Hwy. 7 South Near Regional Center, Oxford, MS 38655 |

I've had this Virgin Mobile phone for two months. I have had no clarity or dropout problems using it in Oxford. It does have occasional signal losses in areas between Oxford and Jackson, Tupelo, and Birmingham; but waiting a minute for a strong signal hasn't been a problem for me. I tested our area south of Oxford with a friend's Sprint phone before buying the new phone, since Virgin Mobile is a Sprint subsidiary. We previously had both Verizon and StraightTalk which uses Verizon as the carrier. The Verizon service was flawless, but expensive. StraightTalk surprisingly gave us frequent dropouts with a message which said, "Call Ended."

AT&T

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | University of Mississippi Campus, Oxford, MS 38655 |

On campus I get good reception, 3G everywhere, except on game days. So many people come in at the same time on game days that the service grinds to a halt. Off campus service is good in town, but as soon as you head out of town all bets are off.

I know what you mean. I live around that area. My service use to be great with AT&T, now it just sucks. I switch over and got the Pearl Flip with Verizon and I have great service all the way up to 78 and south of town! I noticed that my pearl would only pick up on EDGE, my Verizon phone picks up on 3G. The internet is a lot faster.

Near hwy 7 I get little to no service with AT&T. On campus my calls always drop. On the other side of town though service is great!

I switch to Verizon Wireless the other day from AT&T and the service is great! The person at the store told me to do *228 option 2 every month because of new towers they are adding all over North MS. I am really happy I switch. AT&T was giving me dropped calls and everything. Everyone should look into Verizon Wireless.

I've been in oxford for two going on three and Sprint has been my carrier for three years. My service is below average pretty much everywhere I go exspeically at the Exchange! I will be changing to AT&T in the fall.

I get reception all over oxford and the surrounding area. Most people complain about Sprint in this area, but I guess those comments are old. Sprint is excellent in Oxford.

My phone receives both the GSM and TDMA signal. Both work fine, but the GSM signal is better.

I have the National Plan and I am dropped in the middle of a call about 4 times a week, but the reception (average 4 / 5 bars) is good. I think my problem is the old tank of a 5165 that I have. I think my phone has trouble transitioning from 1 cell tower to the other.

My reception in Oxford is hurrendous. I even have a plan which allows unlimited roaming service, and even roaming does not provide reception on my phone. Overall, I am very disappointed with Sprint service in Oxford.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | E. Jackson Ave., Oxford, MS 38655 |

Overall, the reception I receive in Oxford is pretty good. I have noticed that since the new GSM towers went up in mid-July, service is much better. For instance, I formerly had no service at all in the Delta, and now I have the usual 3-5 bars of reception. So, I am satisfied with the way the new towers are receiving.
