2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | River Rd.South | Rogue, Salem, OR 97302 |

Lots of dropped calls indoors. Outdoors is better, but who wants to have to go outside to make a call? Problem is, I don't know that any other carrier has better reception in this area.

Have had T Mobile for years. Had them way back when they were Air Touch, or whatever their name was. Anyway, we've been fairly pleased with their service. Usually not a problem; plus a trip out to Wyoming last year, even in the National Park, where in years past we got charged heavily for roaming, this time not only was roaming not charged but got good enough reception to make an important family phone call. (I can't vouch for this all the time.) My only "gripe" with them recently is that I got talked last year into buying one of their cheaper smart phones to replace my old Samsung Smiley, which I quite liked, but the battery in that was starting to swell, and the Prism they replaced it with gets poorer reception in big buildings like Lowe's or Costco than my mom's cheap flip phone she got for about 70 bucks from them about two or three years ago - plus her phone (also a Samsung) is still working with the original battery. I don't tend to use all the bells and whistles of smart phones - my primary use is actual calls and texting - but my husband did get a Samsung Galaxy 5 and loves it for the most part.

The T-Mobile coverage map shows strong 4G LTE coverage there is actually only One bar of LTE signal and 3 bars of Edge service in this area. T-Mobile needs to fix this area and upgrade the towers.

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

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.

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 :)

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.

The service is just awful at my house. I have no service in my room but if I move my phone a tiny bit then I get 3g, then I loose all service. Its more then just spotty. I dislike it.
