1 Out of 5 (1 star) | South Liberty on Hill Looking Towards Ankeny Reser | Stonecrest Ave., Salem, OR 97306 |

Very poor reception that seems to have become even worse since I switched from an android phone to an iPhone 5.

Only edge and 2 bars of service in this area. The T-Mobile website is showing 4g service in this area and there is none.

When I got my phones in December of 2012 the service was great. Now that they are upgrading the towers I have had tones of dropped calls and very poor service. Calls where the other party complains that they can not hear me and very scratchy sound. Other parts of town and some areas have 4G are better but if I had known I was going to go thru 5 months of poor service to get faster internet I would have chosen a different carrier.

In most places through south salem down to kiezer I get great service there is some spots where it goes out, this is most likely due to the work they are doing on the towers to switch them over to 4 LTE. As an add on I see a lot of people complaining that they get no service in there home with sprint. if this is a problem you can call customer service and request a Airave, That is a mini tower for your house so that you have complete bars and calls will never be dropped again.

Sprint

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Lancaster DR (North Salem) | Portland RD, Salem, OR 97305 |

3G Coverage is OK, LTE is rare, but occurs in some parts of town. Note: I have problems loading videos and searching on youtube even with 3G. Have no problems when I have LTE. Pandora also skips when on 3G. All around pretty OK service, but frustrating when things don't load or take forever due to slow speeds of 3G. Luckily I have wifi in most places I go in town :)

Painful edge data speeds. Map shows 3G / 4G service. Please change these tiers out here from edge.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | 12th St. | Fairview Ave., Salem, OR 97302 |

Before moving to Oregon I was a loyal Verizon customer. In Arizona their service was better than their competitors hands down. I had tried Cricket, Sprint and AT&T and experienced bad call quality and dropped or missed calls with all of them. Since moving to Salem it really has been a matter of picking the best of the worst. I have tried Sprint, TMobile and Verizon. I started with Verizon and despite their high monthly fees I am back with them. I spend most of my time within the Salem area and despite the claims of Sprint and TMobile I noticed that I had about a 50% call completion rate. Meaning that about half of my calls never went through on the first try or dropped prematurely. With Verizon I am at about 95% for completion. I do not get service with any carriers when I am too far outside of Salem but again Verizon is hands down better than its competitors. Sprint sold me on the idea of the unlimited data but it was useless as my connection to their data network was constantly dropping inside my home as well as anywhere else I tested it. Verizon once again has proven to be more reliable in all areas than their competition. I currently have 5 phones on my plan, 4 smart phones one older phone. The review is based on my experience with both the older models (Envy, and the Razor as well is the Iphone 4 and Samsung Galaxy S III)

I live right next to Cell Site. I get great reception with T-Mobile. Whether I'm at the mall or the Hospital or even in the county Jail I get atleast 2 or 3 bars or service reception.
