I have experienced bad call reception / cutting in and out, dropped calls for many years now with Cricket. This was same sim card but on 4 different brands of android smart phones. I'm about to change to Verizon but am not enthused after reading some reviews here. Usually, to have a decent phone conversation I have to drive my car up the block to the Lamar Middle School parking lot. I'm so frustrated, I'm also considering paying for a separate land line again. Amazingly, it's more than halfway through 2021 and consumers are still having to deal with this crap.

There is no wifi where I live so I must rely on cell reception. Verizon reception even with a highly-rated signal booster is poor. With the booster, I can maintain a phone call, but generally cannot send or receive photos via text message. It often takes 10 minutes or more to open a website page. That being said, friends and family with Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T all have similar issues at this location. To have a zoom conference, I must drive at least a mile, generally 2 miles away for decent reception. This area really needs more towers, especially since more people became homebound during the pandemic. There is far too much traffic trying to use the same towers that were barely sufficient before.

I can make phone call only one side upstairs. The sound quality is poor. When I am working downstairs I have to leave phone in that room to avoid missing call.

Awful coverage. Spotty service on best day hardly worth the $. Not a single positive thing to say.

T-Mobile has excellent service in this area, but if you head to the burbs, or the country, the coverage is unpredictable and spotty. For example, it barely works in Round Rock, Pfluegerville, or even outside of town in Fredericksburg. Yet, the T-Mobile map shows solid service: Very deceptive! Hill Country (west of Austin) is best suited for AT&T, but the best coverage outside of that is Verizon— esp in San Antonio, Houston, El Paso, West Texas, or Dallas. Verizon has made their plans more valuable, so I may switch back. The pink kool aid doesn’t work in rural areas despite their map promises.

In the Oak Hill area and and have been fighting this for 5 months. T-Mobile suggested a new phone to solve some of the problems it didn't.
