4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Wake Forest / Buena Vista , Winston Salem, NC 27104 |

Sprint has tremendously improved. I now have 4G LTE everywhere, and perfect service. All over the city, places where I used to get maybe a bar now have at least 2-3 bars of 3G, but usually 4G LTE. It's nice having unlimited 4G that I can actually use now. Better, they're rolling out spark here. On Robinhood road and peace haven, I got 68mbps (yes, that's correct! Not 6.8!) of 4G. Unlimited! The only spotty area is at the last block of two of the Robinhood road end of buena vista - I get just about 1 or 2 bars of 3G only... but the second you turn down Robinhood, service goes up again and you have 4G. Apparently they haven't optimized their towers they've added in yet. Hopefully it will improve in that spot.

Almost Never get more than a 1 / 2 bar. Phone is constatnly searching for service! Not just at home but in a lot of places. I agree with other writers; the AT&T ad that boasts the most coverage over its competitors is a farce! I can't deal anymore, I am sincerely searching for a better service provider.

Awful service and I thought AT&T was bad. I've had Verizon, AT&T and now Sprint. Went with them for the unlimted data and can't even use it. VERY slow 3g... when I get it. Best in this area is Verizon, but they have horrible customer service. Maybe in 10 years when we get 4G it will be better with Sprint...

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Salem College, Winston Salem, NC 27101 |

In and around Salem College, coverage is usually 1-2 bars at most. Indoors, it usually drops to 1 bar or no coverage at all. The good news is that Salem has wifi all over the place, so if you have wifi calling on your phone, you will still be OK.

Over the last year, my Sprint service has gone from good to acceptable to non-existent. If I'm at home, I get calls to my cell 60% of the time. The rest of the time, the caller goes to voicemail because my phone doesn't ring. I can test this because I have Google Voice set up on my line so that calls to my cellular number ring both my land-line and cell phone. The house phone rings every time... the cell phone, not so much. On top of voice issues, I must rely on 3g data since I naively upgraded to an LTE phone and our area does not have LTE as of yet. The 3g service is as bad if not worse than the voice service. If I am not connected to wireless, I may as well forget about using data. 3g speeds here are equivalent to dial-up. I used to tell everyone how great Sprint was for the price paid. Now, I wouldn't even recommend it if it were free.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | West End, Winston Salem, NC 27101 |

I'm usually not in a situation where I cannot use my phone for calling / texting. However, the 3g service is very spotty. Sometimes, even with a lot of bars of 3g service, it will still take a long time to load webpages in Safari, or to check Facebook. Usually 3g isn't even available downtown, and sometimes it works fairly well, and other times not at all. I went with Sprint because I've used their service for years. But since getting a smart phone, I'm ready to change carriers.

I had maybe one or two bars at first and now I don't get any at all. Sprint has horrible service! They don't get coverage even in normal size towns and it's very frustrating. Don't use sprint's service.

No signal at all in my home or yard, very weak signal on street. Verizon signal (on another phone) was good, even indoors

Based on the Sprint coverage map, we should have a Good reception. Yeah, right... Even if we are able to make or receive a call, it doesn't last a minute. Between breaking up and "hello? hello?", the calls are finally dropped. Very frustrating!

Reception around hwy 150 and Millers creek is horrible. The call is automatically dropped once I enter the dollar general or gym. its the only area I experience no reception. I am able to get the most out of my 4G plan only when am at home, which is basically only to sleep. T-Mobile needs to work on this!

Switched from Verizon after reviewing Sprint's coverage map... .The Sprint map is totally bogus. No way is that accurate, but if they showed you the real signal strength in your area, you would NEVER sign up for a very LONG 2 year contract. Dropped calls are a blessing after suffering through a conversation of repeating every sentence 10 times. Incredibly horrible coverage. I do not think I can make it another year and half with this kind of service.

The reception is terrible. I have to go outside and even then I get a bad signal. What am I paying for if I can't use my phone in my own house.

Surprisingly poor reception to be in the city limits. Horrible sound quality and dropped calls. Reception seems to be great most everywhere else I go.

Depending were I make the call in my house will depend how well the reception is... most of the time 1 out of 10 words are lost or dropped off so the other person on the other end of the conversation misunderstands me. Overall, I am not happy with the coverage; Verizon needs to build an additional tower in Jefferson MD

Reception is notoriously bad for Verizon users living in the Crowne Oaks Apts at the North Point Blvd.and Bethabara. Former AT&T customer, switching back (excellent reception there).
