5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Woodlawn, Bronx, NY 10467 |

Towards the end of 2012 and all of 2013 I had AT&T. When I started service with them I use to live by Yankee Stadium. I had perfect LTE service didn't have a problem at all. Once I moved to Woodlawn near Montefiore Hospital that's when my service went from perfect to worse. I was getting drop calls often, text messages late. Horrible customer service my problem were never solved. Once I heard that T-Mobile was paying for cancellation fee I went ahead and traded my Iphone 5 for the Iphone 5s. Since being in T-Mobile not only I'm saving money on my monthly bill but, I have never had a problem. I have been in the Rockaways a few times to visit friends which have ATT and have horrible service there own homes while I have full bars LTE. In New York City in my opinion is that if you want really good service your better off with Verizon and T-mobile. Of course one is more expensive then the other.

The only time I lose reception is when I get in an elevator. Always had good reception. I've traveled from NY to FL and never had a problem. Verizon overall has great customer service too.

Up until 3 weeks ago service was excellent, now no reception at all without using wifi calling. No calls, no text, no data and customer service is still giving me the run around, three weeks and 10 calls later. They refuse to change the phones because according to them the phones are not the problem but they dont know what is. Guess I have to find a new carrier.

I am Sprint costumer for 15 years. In the pass my phone works perfect, but now is very poor. When I walk in to my apt. I have one or no bars. in the street I have four bars. I have so many drop calls at home and driving. I called Sprint they said, they have problems in the area for a year. Sprint sent me a Sprint modem it would work but your internet speed will be very slow and can't connect. I am so sorry that I have to leave Sprint. I tell my friends that is the best carrier. Now is the worst. Can anyone help me, with is the best carrier. Thank you.

Signal in the building up to 3rd floor is very poor. Too much drop calls. Calls directly go to voice mail.

Verizon has the best reception everywhere and I mean everywhere except for my building and the surrounding area. Everybody's complained more than once and they say they've checked but nothings improved. I can go out on my terrace 6 floors up which faces nothing but the Jersey Palisades and cell phone towers and get dropped calls. Can't figure it out.

I work all over the Bronx Sprint voice and text no problem but data is the worst off all the major carries. On average less then 100kbps some areas network communication error meaning no data. If you want fast data Verizon is the best but be prepared to pay with your first born. I had Verizon before

Calls get dropped, 3g is always going off, cant get 4g to work sometimes. Miss too many phone calls and texts, because I rarely get bars. Been with Sprint over 13 yrs and If this bs service continues, will def leave.

Horrible reception inside the building. Oddly, though, AT&T users get great reception, including full data in the basement!

I live on the 5th floor, top level and I still get no reception for texting. Texting fails. Sprint has 2 towers 1 for text and 1 for voice data. It seems that when I text always after 6pm text messages don't go thru. All may bars was still up. I even walked outside around the block and texting still fails. "Network Error, try again later" I once had to drive down 3 blocks to get service.... .I'm changing my service to Verizon in March 2011 when my contract is up. I'm tired of this "FisherPrice, "Mickey Mouse" Service!

The voice service is good,but I have major issues with 3G data service. Most of the time it's non existent. I have data on the subway,but when I get to the area I live in, the data disappears. The weird thing is that the phone shows full bars and 3G icon. It's becoming very frustrating!

I've had T-Mobile since 2003. In addition, I had AT&T until 2006, then Verizon from 06-09. AT&T was garbage. Verizon was comparable, but very expensive. I love TM. I live in the Brons and it doesn't work in my front hallway, but to be fair, I have friends with Verizon and AT&T and their phones don't work there either. I have service consistenly on the 6 from my stop at Buhre down to Hunts Point. Yes, in the tunnel. I work in grand central and get service all over except down on the lower level platforms, but even our portable radios are shoddy down there. I'm extremely happy with my service, but I think it depends on your phone. My friend hated TM until he got the Samsung Galaxy and now he has 4G practically everywhere.

The signals are too strong. I feel like a dentist's drill is boring into my teeth and ears... at several pitches, driving me insane. Where can I go to live where I can escape this? It's constant since they put in the Fios Wiring in our condo complex for wireless. One doctor had to quit his job in an emergency room, it was so wired - he couldn't take it. I can't take this. I don't want to move somewhere and have them put in a tower right after I get there... I won't be able to afford to move again. The signals are so strong it's giving me pain in my head. Three of them at different pitches and textures and wave lengths. And I'm not even anywhere near my cell phone or using it.
