Been with Sprint for a while T-Mobile before that, never have issues with my phone, the network has deffinatly slowed over the last 2 years, used to get great speeds, wimax was 8 / 3 when I had my evo (in cc) 4 / 2 in north, switched to an iphone 4s, slow as a dog, even next to my old cm7 evo 4g my roonate took off my hands. Switched to a galaxy s3, way faster than the iphone, but not faster than the evo even on 3g. Never have a voicemail without a missed call (that did happen downtown with my iphone and happens rarely for Google voice) mad my s3 isn't wimax too as there's no lte yetWas this review helpful to you?
In the house, one to two bars and choppy voice. Very difficult to hold a conversation. Outside, not much better. Great reception elsewhere like at work, in the car, in Chestnut Hill (where I used to live).Was this review helpful to you?

T mobiles reception seem below average I think less should be spent on who's fastest and more on reception to please customers they do have nowWas this review helpful to you?
In a standard NW Philadelphia neighborhood with relatively few trees, Verizon reception is poor: one bar tops inside a standard twin house, maybe two bars if I'm outside. It was so bad, in fact, that I was willing to eat the early termination fee to switch to another carrier. I did this in 2006. I recently bought an iPad with Verizon 4G. This device has a much better antenna than my 2004 RAZR, but the results are still the same. Friends who visit can't use their Verizon devices either.Was this review helpful to you?
I originally joined Sprint, after having both Verizon and AT&T to take advantage of the everything plan for $100. I was thinking that because I'm in a major city my reception would stay the same and I was wrong. Not only is the network slower than the other networks (my phone will time out before some web pages load) but I no longer have service in my home EVEN when I have on my wifi. I will be switching back to another network after this contract is done.Was this review helpful to you?
Although my reception throughout the city is pretty good most of the time, I drop calls every day in my home and every time I go down Bells Mill Rd.Was this review helpful to you?
Well the use of a "Reception Rating" doesn't adequately reflect my experience with T-Mobile in Philadelphia. When I moved to Philly, I purchased the best phone out there, the Galaxy S2, drooling to take advantage of T-Mobile's "The Nations Fastest 4G Network". So the reality of the situation, while in Center City (where I work and live), I almost always have 4-5 bars of signal which the phone thinks is 4G. However the data service while in 4G is HORRIBLE! Let me say it again, HORRIBLE. Most often my data service is non-existant and if it does happen to work, VERY VERY VERY SLOW. I actually stopped by the T-Mobile store on Market St., and was told that "We know there is a problem with 4G, there is only a single 4G tower for all of Center City. We recommend you put the phone into GSM mode (ie 2G) and us it that way." WOW, so let me get this straight, I just purchased a $500+ phone and you think it is OK to simply use 2G for data.. give me a break! To T-Mobiles credit, I have complained enough that they now credit be $5 / month more than what I pay for the service, so I will stick it out hoping for better service in the future. But for a new customer looking for 4G in Philly, look to Verizon or there, dont even consider T-Mobile.Was this review helpful to you?
