I work for ConEdison inside the Steam power plant on East River Station and spend over 40 hours a week with no reception what-so-ever. Luckily, I own an Iphone and so do most of my friends and family so they could only reach me through imessage or facetime when I'm connected to the Wifi. My collegues do not have this issue with their companies.. Even Metro PCS seems better than Sprint. Very disappointed. Seriously considering switching companies.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | 60 E 42nd St. | Suite 448, New York, NY 10165 |

I came here because I was thinking of switching from Verizon to something else. All of the dead spots that the Sprint, T-Mobile, and ATT customers were talking about, I've also experienced. No signal whatsoever in Grand Central, no signal in the subways (some on some platforms), poor reception in Penn Station and often no reception once downstairs on a train. I was hoping for a better signal from someone else... Verizon will tell me that I have 4G LTE connection, but it'll be one bar and do nothing. What good is LTE if it's barely connected? I've heard that Sprint's is faster, but these reviews aren't encouraging.

Worst customer service! I'm never trying Sprint again. Unlocking phones is stressful and they never try to help in any way. It sucks !

Grand Central's tunnels for the Metro North trains are a COMPLETE DEAD ZONE. You will not receive service or reception whatsoever. This is problematic because as a commuter, I spend about 40 minutes on average in the tunnels per day. You also will not receive service in the MTA Subway tunnels, although you do get reception while waiting on the platform. Finally, I work around Times Square on the 24th floor of a building. I get service, but it is spotty and slow. Running Pandora or YouTube is a crap shoot.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 100 Church St. | Barclay, New York, NY 10007 |

Absolutely the worst coverage of any major carrier in NYC. I consistently get no service in the office building and very poor coverage in the hotel. I am very disappointed with T-Mobile's coverage as I travel quite a bit for work and find it rather frustrating to have to deal with such poor coverage in the areas that I travel. The reality is that I mostly go to large metropolitan areas and their service has consistently been very poor.

Terrible service. I am constantly travelling around the city and rarely get "4G" and when I do its terrible speeds. I can stand in one spot and run the full gambit from 4G to 3G to 1x to no service without moving. Full "4G" right now, just ran speed test and getting 2.91Mbps. A Tmo co-worker just got 29.91Mbps, with only 2 bars 4G. Just not worth it to save the few $ that my company discounts for sprint, today they lose another customer. Cant wait to get the Note4 on Tmobile!

LTE coverage is very fast. Went up to 55 Mbp down once. T-Mobile is getting better and better by the year. Coverage has gotten a lot better.

Sprint claims it's repairing towers in NYC, now 6 months, service is a disaster, incoming calls never receive or sent to voice mail, messages not showing up until the next day, out going calls regularly dropped

In and out in our apartment. Dead spots in the street in front, and whenever you pass the corner of 101st and West End the calls are dropped. When driving, always lose calls in Paramus NJ and northern part of Bergen County. They say Verizon is the best of the carriers but still not really reliable. In the New York area I use landlines when I can.

My 3 yr old phone died last night and I'm sitting here exploring whether or not to upgrade and switch carriers. I can see others experience is negative, so I'll keep my carrier. Much seems to have happened in the last 3 years because coverage on my personal phone has improved dramatically since I switched to Sprint. Hope that helps anyone landing here, you all helped me decide to keep my carrier. Its important you also check signal access and coverage and your phone's capabilities before switching. Where I live I have access to many carriers. Where I work, only 2 carriers provide coverage to the 40th fl where I work. You can find what coverage is like in your area online (this site) or via apps. Then there's the phone, the older phones with older technology dont work well on newer equipment. So though I'm staying with my carrier I am buying a relatively newer phone (NOT an iPhone) in order to continue my cellular bliss!

I do not get good service, I have been with T-Mobile for more than 10 years and will be leaving this company as soon as I pay off the Samsung blaze that I have. I can't stress enough how much I hate this company.
