Former unhappy Verizon user. Sprint last 4 years. Service has steadily declined. This past year service took nose dive. Have 2 towers within one half mile. I'm on a hill. HAD good call quality at home until this year. Now calls are iffy coming or going. USED to occasionally get 4G at home. Definitely 4G near my home. Now NOTHING. Rarely even get 4G anywhere. Amazing Sprint says NO PROBLEM! I truly cannot recommend Sprint any longer. SADLY too. So now I'm waiting for contracts to run out on 4 lines so I can switch.

Horrible service in Omaha. Missed calls when it didn't even ring and getting voice mails days later from the time caller left message. And with the poor service they want to charge me an early termination fee... . Wtf?

You know, its pathetic to even think about using Verizon in Omaha. I painfully had a two year contract with them until very recently. During those two years I lived through dropped calls, slow and capped internet, and so on. One time I couldn't get on the phone with an important work call because the Verizon coverage is so bad in my home. Since then I decided to try out Sprint. I chose their cheap unlimited plan. I was surprised by its amazing price and how they actually have unlimited (why doesn't Verizon???) So for the last week I've been going different places, work, shopping, my home, and coverage is always great. I have full or almost full bars almost always. I have not dropped a call yet, texts go fast, and the internet speeds are even impressive. Somewhat surprised, considering the stereotypes of Sprint, but don't listen to them. Don't waste your money on a better name, seriously. Sprint offers cheaper plans, and has better service in the area.

I own 2 phones from separate carriers. One from Sprint (personal), and one from Verizon (work). Keep in mind that I travel around Omaha A LOT every day with my job, so I know all the dead spots like the back of my hand. With my work phone, the Verizon, I have only had a handful of dropped calls in the last year, and that is usually way out in the sticks. One time I had no service. With Sprint, that is a very different story. Even with the Airvana Airave 2.5+ that was supplied by Sprint, that I pay monthly taxes on (WTF?!?!) I get dropped calls in my home, while sitting next to the thing! However, that is better then when I am outside doing yard work, I have no service at all then. I live on top of a hill, one of the tallest in at least a 15 min drive, and I need an amp to use my phone? What kind of ruckus is this? If Verizon wasn't so expensive, I would totally ditch Sprint for them. Sprint is the worst ever. Go with Verizon... if you can afford them!

I got a free T-Mobile phone from work, so I'm only out room in the junk drawer I tossed the phone. There isn't any coverage anywhere.

I've had T-Mobile for 11 years in Buffalo, NY and I came to Omaha in 2012... .OMG! Did I leave the country??? T-Mobile should be ashamed to make the commercials that they do. Horrible, horrible service! Needless to say my loyalty is over. I tried to stick it out thinking they would improve the service area. I do not want to get caught in an emergency situation (car accident) and not be able to call 911... WTF!

I've been a Verizon customer for 15 years now. I got my newest phone a little over a year ago, Galaxy Note 2. Love it. I got it when I lived in Northwest Iowa, Okoboji to be exact. While I was up there they updated the towers and always had strong 4GLTE coverage. Now back in Omaha, I sit here at my house at 1am with poor 2 bar 3g coverage. Since the last update my coverage here has been horrendous. Some of thelowest speeds I've ever seen. Went to Okoboji 2 weeks ago and had 100mbps d / l and 75 u / l speeds. In Omaha I'm lucky to break 25. I showed VZW the results and they just tell me my phone needs to be "restarted" and should go back to normal... never has. It's getting old fast and it seems like everyone is having thessame issues across all networks. So what's the solution?

I just got the Boost Mobile phone that runs on Sprint Spark. The call quality is great with no dropped calls! Also, the Sprint Spark speeds are amazing. I took a speedtest and got 75 down and 25 up. I'm happy...

Worst service ever. Couldn't even call in to customer care without my call dropping.

Sprint's coverage is terrible in downtown Omaha. This didn't happen until recently. I drop multiple calls a day (even when outdoors). Sprint's customer service insists that there is no maintnance going on in the area, so their recent upgrade must have made service worst. I have had issues with Sprint's coverage all over Omaha that past several months since they started their "upgrades."

Rarely get 4G service on any of my devices. When I do, its two bars, and 4G seems to be slower than 3G. Not living up to the hype of 4G.

To the person below who said Sprint has spotty coverage, you are a liar! I get better coverage on a faster network with Sprint. Sprint is way better than Verizon unless you like getting scammed with data overages. Sprint is faster more reliable and unlimited!

It's funny how Verizon people say they have such great lte coverage compared to Sprint, but they don't get coverage in their basements! I have 5 bad of lte in my basement with Sprint! The speeds average 25mbps on Sprint and my friends say they only get 5mbps so I will never switch to slow Verizon!

Have had customer service issues with Verizon, (which normally has highest ratings for service). After 3 months of dealing with returned phone issue, and every csr stating "they are going to take care of this issue" I am stuck with unfounded charges. Grade "D" for customer service. Customer for 8 Years.

I have been on Verizon for the last 4 years and I have always had coverage. I only rarely lose LTE when I am inside buildings (usually in the basement). I have no idea why everyone else is complaining about Verizon. I have friends on Sprint and they are barely getting spotty LTE coverage just now. I wouldn't be switching to Sprint for that reason right now.

Sprint wasn't that great before, but it is pretty good now. Data is reasonably fast and always have at least 3G, LTE in lots of places. Haven't dropped a call in months.

At times, the reception is good and strong - but in the evenings or at dusk it is often jarbled. It was a lot worse when we had Sprint.
