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.

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.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Columbus Circle, New York, NY 10019 |

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.

You guys are spoiled brats. Everything must be now, perfect, a dedicated pipeline only for your data. Earth to sheep, most of other countries have service prices set extremely high and coverage is nonexistent. Stop the whining brats, when the stuff hits the fan I want to see people appreciate your luxuries

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Madison Square Park, New York, NY 10016 |

I've been with both TMobile and AT&T in the last year. The latter has been superior in both call quality and coverage. I used to drop signal completely whenever I entered a building on TM service, and despite the unlimited plan it seemed overly throttled. With AT&T I haven't had any issues anywhere and I get 4G LTE service throughout the entire city with no drop spots that I've noticed. LTE is faster than my home wifi (but that's Time Warner so obviously it's not great anyway). It could just be the phone though. My hubby has a Verizon iPhone. When we get the same text message from a mutual friend, mine will come in between 30 seconds to 2 minutes earlier, and most of our friends are on Verizon too. Make of that what you will. I just dislike AT&T prices, but you get what you pay for. All these unlimited plans look too good to be true, and so far IMHO they are.

Sprint is absoultely the worst. Unlimited data for unusable service. Internet speeds are slow to non existent. Calls cannot be made inside a building. Calls get dropped all the time when inside a building or anywhere indoors. Please do not fall for sprint's unlimited deception. Anyone that gives Sprint a good review is probably sprint's upperanagement or somewhat related to the ownership of sprint. Obviously Sprint has no morals behind their business. How can you charge your customers a bill every month when you cannot use the service? This is straight robbery and a crime.

Sprint fails to connect and goes in and out of mobile data. Sporadically it used to get 4G but lately has been 3G only which is erratic, sometimes losing internet completely till phone is rebooted. Calls are not strong and results in struggle to broken conversations

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
