Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | BROAD STREET | 26TH, Chattanooga, TN 37408 |

Sprint's reception, despite their promises for years to improve, has actually cascaded downward in the past year. It is taking me on average 30 seconds to make phone calls connect, dropped calls have increased and 3G broadband is virtually nil throughout the Metro. Sprint is failing in Chattanooga and I am miserable until my contract is up.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Ashland Terrace | Dayton Blvd., Chattanooga, TN 37415 |

Prior to signing up with T-Mobile 3 years ago, I drove around my normal routes with a friend and his Nexus One to test signal strength. At that time, there were a couple of very small dead zones that were acceptable to me. However, since that time, these dead spots have increased in both size and quantity. In fact, it's gotten so bad that If I walk to certain rooms in my house, I lose my signal. And I live atop a high ridge. And their "4G" coverage in Chattanooga is even worse. When you can find such a signal, it's barely faster than Edge.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Chickamauga Dam Area | Lake Resort Dr., Chattanooga, TN 37415 |

When I say the reception is poor, it means really poor, almost no reception. If I stand still out on my balcony in one particular spot, I can usually carry on a short conversation. Inside almost never. Texting isn't usually a problem, but sometimes I don't receive them. I just get a blank message from whomever I'm texting with. It has been very frustrating and I'm about ready to give up on Sprint!

Wish I would've checked for Sprint reviews before making the switch from Verizon. I now have ZERO data connection from inside my house! Really really really disappointed! Will be sending these 2 brand new Galaxy Note 2's right back to sender. You shouldn't have to connect to your own wifi just to check your dang email from inside your house. Two thumbs DOWN!

Sprint

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Germantown Rd. | South Terrace, Chattanooga, TN 37412 |

No service at all on Germantown Rd.at South Terrace. No service in my neighborhood, which is right off Germantown Rd.and.5 miles from I-24. No service on 1-24W (heading downtown) at the Ridge Cut until you get to the 4th Ave. exit. When you're heading into the area on I-24E (coming from downtown), the service disappears at the East Ridge Exit. This whole area of East Ridge is a dead zone. Service comes back once you get to the intersection of Germantown Rd.and Ringgold Road. I am VERY disappointed and frustrated by this lack of service in such a highly populated area.

AT&T

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Standifer Gap | Ooltewah-Ringgold Rd., Chattanooga, TN 37421 |

AT&T. Good service most of the time. There are several weak zones and drop spots like E. Brainerd and Banks, Amnicola Hwy. heading into / out of downtown, Ooltewah-Ringgold Rd going to Ringgold, etc. AT&T is expensive. Business associates like Verizon. Comparable cost to AT&T, but I hear better coverage in Chattanooga. Love the Virgin iPhonr plan, but Sprint network it uses is lousy here.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Mountain Creek Rd., the Quarry Golf Course | Reeds Lake, Chattanooga, TN 37415 |

I live just north of the old Quarry golf course and Reeds Lake Rd, and at my house most of the time I have no reception. Even if I go outside, sometimes I will have a little bit, but most of the time I have nothing. If I'm downtown or out at Hamilton Place or even St. Elmo I get great 3G coverage. Other than that, I think T-Mobile is an awful choice for the Chattanooga area if signal is important to you.

Just changed from AT&T after 22 years. On May 27, 2012. I bought a Samsung Galaxy S II and switched to Sprint. Since Day One I have not been able to use this phone at my own home, which is in the city of Chattanooga, Tn. I have called Sprint every day but one (last Friday). They seem to not be able to help me. They are going to send me an Airaide unit (someday) to try to help me. This is terrible service. AT&T had great service for over 22 years. I am sow sorry I switched to Sprint. So before you switch you better check it out. I didn't Bill

Constant dropped calls or no network coverage, even outside. Restarting phone does not help and tech support is no help either. When trying to make a call, I can actually see my bars fluctuate from 1 - 3 in the same location.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Dayton Blvd. | Memorial Dr., Chattanooga, TN 37415 |

I'm actually on a Net10 plan - which is whyy the phone model is quirky. It's marketed by them as the Optimus Net - it's built specifically for Tracfone by LGE and runs thru Sprint towers. Reception is almost perfect although I'm using it in the house, no open windows, etc. I've used it all over Chatt and the only place I had problems with reception was deep inside Memorial Hospital where even my friend's iPhone had none. I'd be entirely over the moon with the entire setup if not for Net10 / Tracfone's incompetence. They created a problem nearly 4 months ago and since have disconnected my service 5 times and still not fixed their mistake. Also, the phone itself has very little internal memory if you're an app hound (512 MB total). Plus no Adobe Flash support. Since it's my sole internet access, it's time for an upgrade and new provider. I'm looking hard at Boost and their ZTE Warp. Comments / experiences with Boost coverage (which should use the same towers my Net10 does) in the Chatt area, esp Red Bank / N. Hixson welcome...

At the time of purchase, the HTC Sensation phone was one of the first on the market with 4G. Phone only gets 2G from my location limiting all functions of the 4G network.

I lose calls constantly if I travel in ANY form- walking, driving, etc, around the city. I recently upgraded to this phone because T-Mobile told me that it was just the older phone I was using. Now I feel they just wanted me back under contract.

Down here visiting parents... My S30 works all across the country ( I live in Chicago and travel on business), but there is almost no coverage here on the edge of north Red Bank at the Chatta city limits.. Inside the house is none at all. My parents' ATT cheapies do quite well, though.

AT&T

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Downtown and Outlying Aries, Chattanooga, TN 37405 |

AT&T has really stepped up their game on reception. I get Great reception in buildings even in the basements in buildings at UTC where no one else has service. The phone may have something to do with it but I rarely get dropped calls and data is extremely fast. Speed tests average about 2.5 Mb / s.

I have found that Sprint's reception is pretty decent for Chattanooga. I believe reception does have a lot to do with the phone. HTC has always worked pretty well for me, but my wife's phone (basic Samsung) drops in areas where mine works without a problem. However, if you travel in the cell-phone black hole between Chattanooga and North Alabama as I do on a regular basis, it is terrible. Sprint's phone and data rates are the main reason I stick with them.
