5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Time Square, New York, NY 10013 |

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

Many times I get no reception at all. Phone says "No internet connection" with full bars. Crappy!

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.

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.

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.
