I have been with Virgin Mobile for 2 and a half years (they use the Sprint towers), and never had a problem until a few months ago. Now my phone drops calls so much I can't even have a conversation with anyone. It'll drop the call after less than a minute in many cases. VM customer service doesn't seem to know what's going on and if they do they're giving me the runaround. Someone who has Sprint told me she has the same problem--dropped calls--and it's because they're doing construction on the Sprint towers. How long is this supposed to last?! How long are we supposed to put up with shitty reception? If you're thinking of switching to Sprint or Virgin Mobile right now, don't.

Been with Sprint for 15 years. All of a sudden, dropped calls every day. I can't stay on the phone for more than 2 minutes without the call being dropped. Verizon here I come.

Sprint (5 stars) Southgate Plaza, Buffalo, NY 14224 July 08, 2013 This assmunch 5 star rater is a plant. Lets meet at the parking lot where the Sprint store is and compare signals with Verizon (The great Satan) and AT&T. Sprint won't win in its own parking lot. THAT'S FUNNY SHIT!

Ever since I got to Buffalo in August I was wondering if Sprint would ever get their shit together. Now they have the 4G upgrade and my service still sucks. The phone they reccommended sucks. The GPS is SHIT. There are cellular black holes all over Buffalo. I am leaving.

I have had Sprint for almost 15 years and the last 6 months feels like the old dial up days. Drop calls, 10 min download for texts no service in dense areas... I have new phones, old phones doesn't matter they claim when you call them that this is the first they are hearing of this problem... what a lie.

Service has been terrible for months. Dropped calls, texts that come through the next day, emails that never come through. Moved son down to Fredonia for first year of college on Saturday and 9 out of 10 calls he tries to make he HAS NO SERVICE. When he does get a call through, you only hear every second or third word he is saying. Just got off the phone with Sprint (not the first time we have called about terrible service) and was offered $35 off my bill for my troubles. I told them I wanted out of my contract and they said NO CAN DO. This is absolute %^#@*#&#*&. How can you be locked into a contract with a company that is NOT providing the services you are paying for?

I've been with Sprint for 20 years with no issues. All of a sudden I am getting dropped calls with every call I make from my home. Stopped by Sprint store on transit road. Basically no help. Blamed it on my Apple iPhone 5. Seriously? Finally called *2 customer service. He said he would have to submit a service call for my area and it would take 3-5 business days. And my call dropped while I was talking to him! He told me no one would follow up with me. The only way I would know if it is fixed is if my calls aren't dropped anymore. Great customer service answer. Not very happy with Sprint right now. And the more research I do online, the more I am getting a sinking feeling that I am going to have a LOT of trouble getting this resolved with Sprint.

Recently left Sprint for cricket prepaid next moving to verizon. Poor coverage with sprint. The company is a nightmare. They are pushy and deny service problems. I am disgusted with them. They continue to lie to their customers no one who has Sprint has a signal in their home. Cricket was great then dead spot again.

Been a Sprint customer for over 15 years.Never had anything but great voice and data performance.Sprint has just done several upgrades to local towers for even better perfomance.Its funny to read the negative reviews about signal strength in the previous posts.I think the real issue is that people dont pay the bill on time,then the phone is turned off by Sprint so somehow all of a sudden Sprints signal is bad and somehow all the phones are bad.

I switched from T-Mobile and I must say I'm glad I did. The problem is I chose sprint. I should've went with my instinct &. Choose Verizon or AT&T. Mind you I'm a new costumer. My contract is only 3 weeks old and I'm already debating weither or not I lk break my contract. I'm so frustrated. I feel duped. Sprint costumer care says buffalo has great coverage where I live. I'm sorry, wha????????? ??????? R u serious??? I can't see myself staying a whole two years w NO Internet service and crappy overall coverage. I think I'm going to just pony up for the $350 to break my contract. AT&T, Verizon, hope you're ready for me.

Sprint has been one of the bigger wastes of money I have ever blown since Shamwow. Call quality is decent but the towers are overloaded with MVNO subscribers. Anyone remember ISDN? Somehow, Sprints EVDO is slower than that. I consistently get dial-up worthy speeds and latencies of over 1000 milliseconds. I've tried a bevy of phones and I know its not just me because family and friend have experienced the same issues. Someone please tell me what the point of having unlimited data is if you can't use it? I've paid for 4G when it is literally only available on two street corners on Grider. There is definitely no hope for Sprint lte to come here regardless of how many subscribers there are. Verdict: if you live in or are moving to buffalo, save yourself the trouble and pony up for Verizon or (better yet) AT&T.
