3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Charlotte Uptown Area, Charlotte, NC 28202 |

The signal for the T-Mobile services is subpar in most of uptown areas. Simple music streaming becomes very difficult during peak hours around uptown. Having said that speaking to other people, it seem other carriers have the same issue. I remain with T-Mobile because outside of uptown I am able to stream music / videos pretty easily. The unlimeted data is a huge plus since I use aroudn 30-40gb per month. Also I traveled to Europe and was able to get free data during my trip.

Seriously... Verizon is the worst here. Many people say it's the best reception in the charlotte area... If that's the case then the other guys shouldn't be in business. (I know ATT and T-Mobile have better reception in uptown charlotte) I do well at home (Belmont) but I'm in the middle of uptown charlotte and I'm constantly dropping calls or missing emails because of no signal, and it's not just me, Nobody with a Verizon phone gets decent signal here... Also.. Verizon has my phone (BB Z10) locked to LTE, no way I can manually change it to 3g to try and catch a different tower. Charlotte has grown 64.6% between 2000 and 2010 and is considered the second largest banking city in the USA (money.cnn.com, 2012) you would think Verizon would pour a little money into getting some towers in uptown. I've called multiple times and they always say it’s because of a lack of towers in charlotte, and I should buy a repeater... if I worked in the boonies I would understand, but this is ridiculous. If I could chose my own provider (locked into work) I would drop Verizon and go to anyone else ASAP. I'm working on my company to switch providers because of this problem.. Simply awful.

Very unhappy with my services with this company. Sure it's cheap! But it's the worst phone company I've ever used. Signal sucks big time if you're not near any busy area. Data speed is very slow for what they claim to be "4 G LTE".

Searching for another network with GSM basis for foreign use. The trouble is that none seem any good. T-Mobile supposedly has the best foreign use, but their site says they have no coverage in England. Hate to stay with Verizon but its looking that way.

No issues at all with calls. Data occasionally drops to 3G in some situations. Internet is very fast most of the time.

It's not the reception. It's the Customer Service with Sprint. After referring at least 8 customers and my bills paid on time, they still want to charge ME $199.00 for a down payment on a IPhone 6. Horrible customer service. Also, bad service @Torringdon, which is where I purchased!

No service at Northlake Mall area, South Charlotte. I use my wifi in my home, otherwise I would be screwed. The service in South Charlotte has been lacking for years. You get what you pay for. My contact expires in 3 months! I would not recommend Sprint if you live in the above listed areas.

I live in Highland Creek and my Sprint service is almost unusable. I had absolutely zero service at or near my house, until they gave me an Airave which made the service slightly better, but still terrible. The remainder of the city is hit or miss. They still lag behind the other major carriers by a considerable margin. The bottom line is if you live in Highland Creek Sprint is not an option.
