Have almost no reception in buildings upstairs or down. Had to purchase an antenna and signal booster to get one or sometimes two bars. Usually I can get a signal outdoors. I Our phones are a Apple 5s and an LG. I used to have an old US Cellular Motorola flip phone which worked well here, but we upgraded and changed service providers and have had a bad connetion ever since.

Brand new note 4 in a supposed best area on map and I get tossed into 3g all day, with occasional drops in coverage completely. I renewed for Spark, which when it does work, is no faster than 4g on my old note 2.. how they can run their business like this and not be sued for massive fraud is beyond me..

Have tried to use service all over Austin, and can make a call about 20% of the time. Cancelled service, and received another bill for $96 AFTER service was cancelled... $91 for "service" plus late fee. Payments while service was actually on were on automatic payments, and were never late. Sprint rep advised me that porting number would cancel service- now Sprint says that information is wrong, and tough luck- pay the bill. I paid $91 a month for 2 years, and was barely able to use the phone.

No problem with reception. Just wish that Verizon customer service did not suck so badly. Whenever I go into a Verizon brick / mortar location I fell like I've stepped onto a used car lot. No one seems to know the products and forget about trying to get a faulty phone fixed. It's always sell, sell, sell. If I could guarantee reception with another carrier I would kick Verizon to the curb.

I have had AT&T or its successor since 1996. Coverage seems to have degraded in Austin recently. People cannot hear me on my phone on a regular basis. I highly recommend going with another provider. My second iPhone 6 has not improved the situation.

At times, people cannot hear me at all. I hear them fine. It depends on where I am driving. SW Austin has known dead-spots and I have lived with this a long time. Driving downtown on business calls is wholly unsatisfactory - my reception to people going in and out depending on where I turn my vehicle. It projects a feeble and weak business posture to field business calls on a phone where people can't hear you. I am trying to switch to another carrier. My second iPhone 6 has not fixed the problem.

I am in house and ideal location (open location no big buildings not many trees, neighborhood with spread out small wooden houses, central city location) 4G reception. I am getting one bar to two bars most of the time. Am new here and have not tested GPS but I doubt it is going to be useful and am on this website today looking at different carriers. Am really disappointed to see what poor coverage all the carriers are giving in a progressive city, like Austin. Sounds like Austinites ought to stand up and force the issue.

Get junk service in my apartment with an extender. Constant dropped calls or the calls just don't come through. If it weren't for wifi my phone would be useless at home. It is SO frustrating! I don't know that anything would work better. We got amazing service in Houston, what's the deal Verizon?!?

I signed up for T-Mobiles Family Plan several months ago thinking it was a great deal under $40 a month unlimited. Boy was this a mistake since then I have had nothing but problems one bar on my phone 75% of the calls I make and receive are dropped call failed, numerous text messages not delivered. The service is horrible disgusting. T-Mobile should not be allowed to sell this service or I should say NON-Service for any price until they improve it is just plain awful period. In addition to this when I called T-Mobile twice now for help to tell them about this, I was told they would call me back by the end of the week 2 times they never called me back at all. They know their service is awful at least in the Round rock, Cedar park, Avery Ranch areas if not a wider area and they continue to sell something that does not work and when you complain about it they dont call you back. I will be cancelling this horrible service today. Stay away unless you like 1 bar and constant dropped calls and non delivered texts all the time.
