Purchased the iPhone 6S plus mainly for Internet capability out here. It is virtually worthless. Have had the phone for a few days. Big waste of money. Verizon said coverage in Wilson was good. It is far from good. Can't even take or make calls without it breaking up. Better service with the Tracfone here. Paying for data I can't even use.

I spend more time waiting for my phone to do anything I ask it other than make calls. So slow even in the malls. Forget in my house, I only get one or two bars and I have the Air Rave. My contract is up in August and I will definitely be switching.

Making calls is generally not an issue, but for the past 5 days, any time I'm in the Amherst area, the tower sets my phone clock 4.5 hrs fast. It'll randomly fix itself, and then 10min later, it's back to being way off again. When I'm out on Grand Island or in the middle of the city, this isn't an issue at all. It seems to just be the Amherst towers.

Reception has been good. Not sure what people are complaining about. Maybe it's the new towers... seems good downtown Buffalo and here at home.

Extremely slow, worse speed of all carrier, always like 0.17mbps download, 0.09mbps upload even in 4G and 3G. I have a T-Mobile doing the speedtest at the same time and it gets 36mbs download!

My company is thinking of Switching to AT&T and I'm nervous -- Verizon has been pretty much perfect, yet expensive, of course.

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!
