3G at the end of 2013 is what I was promised. T-Mobile I am going to hold you to your word. A company is only as good as it's word. I am waiting... .

The voice reception seems to be good, but I did not realize at the time I bought my phone that the highest speed I could get, no matter where I am in Sumter, is only 2G (Edge)... .even though my phone is a 4G. C'mon T-mobile, even three years ago, when I was in Germany, I would get 3G almost everywhere. Needless to say, I cannot stream Pandora on the 2G network and therefore, the data plan I have is essentially useless. 2G is like dial-up around here... if you need faster speed, so with Verizon or AT&T.

Have lived here for 3 months and ever since we have lived in this house my phone has to stay in two spots in the house to get one to two bars. Then when I get a call I can't move from that spot! My husand has a smart phone and I don't, so the rep told him that it would be better if I had one so I could use wi-fi calling. How about that shouldn't matter.This was the last straw for me dealing with T-Mobile!

Constantly have dropped calls, signal goes from two to one bar in a blink of and eye. Half the time my calls go directly to voicemail and I dont get the message for a while after... .Called Sprint they were suppose to be researching and has now been going on for 6+months looks like I'll be searching for a new carrier, definitely tired of the run around.

T-Mobile has pretty good reception. I noticed that when in Lowe's, I may lose my signal but I can talk without problems in Walmart. Strange! I hardly ever notice a loss of signal; nothing like when I was on SunCom. ;) EDGE is fast but I'm ready for 3G. And the hold is... .?

Just switched over from Alltel and have not noticed any loss in signal so far. Have noticed that the 3G speed is not as fast as it is in town, but still works well enough.

Just changed from Verizon to AT&T, because Verizon did me wront. But now that I have no service near son's house with AT&T, not sure where to go. Also AT&T used "bait and switch tactics". Made false promises that did not exist once I signed up.

Really great reception! I have known so many people not to get signal at Poinsette or Manchester... .woodsy area's... . with all types of phone services but Cingular always pulls through! Everywhere else pretty much seems to be great to minus a few corners on the roads here and there but it always comes back in before dropping the call.

I always get good reception for voice and data with no dropped calls due to signal loss. Excellent coverage inside and outside of my home.

I couldn't get any reception in my home and in my front yard. I could get one bar and barely sustain a conversation if I used a hands-free and held the phone in the air at the very back of my yard. It was like this 3 years ago and Sprint said they were working on it. Well, 3 years later and it's still the same. If you have a Vision plan, you will not be able to access the Internet with it... it'll keep dropping and searching for service.

Suncom and Cingular are both good here. I have T-Mobile but they roam on these two towers for free.
