I get about 1 bar in my house (usually need to go outside to talk). Barely get 3G, and not a single ounce of 4G. The coverage area indicates I should have a strong 4G connections. Go figure!

The signal used to be full 3g. Since January 2011 it has been 1bar 3g or 1bar 1x signal only. This problem has now extended to uptown charlotte also. My coworkers and I get very poor 3g signal since June 2011.

Okay, so until last week I was COMPLETELY satisfied with T-Mobile. Somehow I'm not getting service in this area or in my house now. I though it was my phone, but my phone was replaced on Tuesday and I'm having the same issue. No calls or text messages and frequent loss of netowrk coverage. I'm getting annoyed and I may be leaving T-Mobile soon if the issue isn't resolved immediately.

In my apt. there is dropped calls,the buffering sucks&can't watch videos,tv on my cell,etc... can't play any games or do anything involving downloading including the internet. I currently have a 3g phone and want to upgrade to a 4g but I feel it'll be a waste of money unless I move away. I'm very disappointed because I chose Verizon based on the dead zone commercial I saw being that I knew my area wasn't the best.

As of yesterday, I have no signal in my house. My phone signal shows 'SOS'. I called yesterday and spoke to customer service that claimed that they will have my service issue remedied asap. I went to sleep and woke up expecting to have a signal. More than 12hrs has passed and I still am unable to make or receive calls, texts, email or access the internet. I'm very dissappointed as my contract is effective for another year and a half and I've never had this issue with AT&T wireless in the several years prior that I've had them.

Reception is generally very good outdoors and in smaller buildings in Charlotte. I usually get about 4 bars everywhere in the city. I have also noticed a significant increase of service inside buildings on campus over the past 2 months. 3G speeds run between 2 and 4 Mbps.

In the Highland Creek area you can have your phone in one spot and see your bars constantly move from zero bars to 3 bars. Bad coverage here.

I rate coverage "3 - Average" because no one has good coverage here. I will say that the major reason I went with T-Mobile is the ability to make calls over Wi-Fi (phone specific) when cellular coverage is unavailable. Now, while in the presence of any local hotspot (Starbucks, etc.), or my home Wi-Fi, I am able to make / receive calls. Best yet, depending on plan the Wi-Fi calls are free!
