Been with Sprint for a couple days WORST decision I've ever made! Terrible data speeds, 1 bar everywhere, dropped calls. DON'T GET CONNED INTO THEIR CRAPPY 4LTE GARBAGE Worse than 3G. Crickets 3G is way better than sprints 4LTE !What good is unlimited data when you can't even use it! I think Sprint needs to feed those hamsters they have powering their cell towers. Returning my note 4 tomorrow going to go try Verizon or at&t. Never going back to sprint.

I was Sprint customer for 10 long years and they were great when I lived down in Texas, Oklahoma and even New Jersey but when I moved to Western New York and decided to get a data plan along with phone coverage, I realized how bad they are in this area. For the last 2 years I have been a customer of Verizon, their phone service is excellent, I almost always get 4G or 4G LTE for data even when I am downtown. The only issue I have with them is price, you really do pay for the fast network. I am now looking to move on to either T-Mobile or AT&T, I don't necessarily expect the same speed as Verizon but if I can get a decent speed for a good price I will be fine.

Having been with Sprint for several years my brain had turned to mush. I didn't know you could have a phone that worked and service that you could count on. WOW. I can have 4G indoors and walking around and driving around buffalo! This is awesome!

Dear Sprint, What a funny name for a slow assed data interupted voice drop calls magic voice mails with no missed calls poor devices crappy coverage even after all your much touted "upgrading" of the network. You get a GFY and I am shopping new carriers at lunch today.

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.

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.

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.

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.

At first I never had a problem with my phone. Lately I have been having no signal to call, surf the web, getting on social networking sites, and a lot of messages about the network is busy. I have been with Sprint off and on since the '90's. I feel that I pay too much money for poor service. The 3g signal goes in and out. I have had to call customer service a few time and was told that the tower was out and it would take some time to get back up and running. I have found customer service to be great at least the t was people I spoke with went over and beyond to help me. One girl helped me to reset my phone, even though it did not help with getting my internet connection back, but at least she tried. The other guy just explained that it was a data issue and they were working to fix the problem. Sprint needs to do more for better service # getting aggravated with have No signal.

Cannot use phone in my house. I get 5 bars if I stand on my roof, but that really does not help - does it? I have complained to Sprint who said it was a phone issue. I have taken phone to store for repair and was told it was fine. I have been with Sprint for over 10 yrs and am looking for a provider with better coverage.
