Sprint

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | 242 St., New York, NY 10039 |

Data coverage is pretty good I get LTE most places outside sometimes 3G but otherwise pretty good although call coverage is outrageous it's like I only paid for data. I just can't get any calling reception 60% of the time they are dropped

My phone is basically useless inside buildings. I'm forced to either use my office phone or head outside to the street to make a call. I've also noticed recently the "red x" next to reception icon on my phone when trying to make calls / send texts while outside. I'm unable to use my phone for a good 30 minutes whenever this happens. My GF has Verizon and experiences none of these issues.

AT&T reception here is awful. Call quality is very poor. The person at the other end of the line sounds like he's at the bottom of a fish tank. Calls are dropped very frequently--in fact, I've gotten so used to it that I take it for granted and don't get upset anymore. People text me and often wonder why I don't respond sooner. I usually get just two bars.

My work uses AT&T as our wireless carrier and for years I have been unable to get usable reception at Penn Station. Honestly, I think AT&T is throttling users here unless they are on high end data plans.

I noticed that overall, the service is getting worse. Either too many users or not enough towers and / or servers to handle the rapid population increase. Verizon's coverage map is NOT a true representation of their service coverage.

My Dad was making a phone call and he has Sprint, and can NOT make calls. No Bars, but I have Verizon and my mom has Verizon also. The reception is better on Verizon than T-Mobile.

Is it possible that firms are JAMMING cell and / or data? The change is TOO DRAMATIC. I get ALL BARS in the middle of the streets (Lexington Ave, 3rd Ave, 58th St, 59th St... .) Then, as I near the building, THE SIGNAL DROPS TO ZERO FAST! I MEAN, 5 BARS, THEN ZERO??? SOME FIRM HAS A JAMMER. ISN'T THIS ILLEGAL?? I called Verizon, and the tech reps basically blow me off, saying that I'm SOL!

I was in the Post Office at 4th Ave and 11th St. and the phoned switch from 3G to analogue, which is basically useless. Since Sandy I my phone quite often switches to analogue and I'm left frustrated. Was on (% down to DC and it kept switching over, my friend with me, with a 5S and AT&T had plenty of bars and no problems. Thinking of switching from Verizon. Went to their store today, they tried to sell me a new phone. I have had 3 this year (clumsy year). All have had this same problem, which I never had before Sandy.

The 3G signal is strong. I haven't had any problems with data or voice inside building. Not sure how 4G LTE will be when I upgrade.

TMobile is the worst service that sadly money buys. You can get a signal (service) just fine on the street. Once you either enter a building or a store forget it. You will not get any service at all. I would recommend avoiding TMobile lest you want to get aggravated that you are paying for service that you can't get.

The data service on Verizon is terrible. I get full bars on the phone but it's useless. It takes 20 minutes to send a simple text and iMessage. It works 10 percent of the time. The voice service is satisfactory. For those looking to switch to Verizon. I just want to say Grass is not always greener on the other side.

Work in this area and use my phone a lot. There's never more than a bar unless I huddle in one small area in my office but even that changes from time to time. Calls usually drop after the first couple minutes and I usually just give up. Texting is terrible too - end up sending or receiving duplicate messages or have to send standard messages instead of SMS. Thinking about switching but the alternatives are still pretty poor in this area.

Just switched from Verizon to Sprint and my reception has suffered. I used to have no issues getting reception in my office (interior but only about 20 feet from windows) now I get very poor reception and can't get through more than 1 or 2 songs on pandora without losing reception. Its very frustrating. I might have to go back to Verizon.
