very bad reception in this area texts won't go through most of the time, dropped calls, data plan unusable. I wish I checked the phone reception before moving in this area. Now I waste time everyday because I have to resend texts multiple times before they go though. It's really frustrating. It seems to be all operators as my friends with other operators have similar troubles

Sprint LTE on iPhone 5. Download speed with full bars of reception has dropped 95% since May. Phone data plan is now mostly unusable. Sections of downtown require turning off LTE to transfer any data. This is not what I paid for. AT&T 3G on iPhone 3s was faster two years ago.

Note: This review is for AIO, which apparently is owned by AT&T. Service is excellent, both for calls and data. However, there is NO tethering plan, so data must be used ONLY with the cell phone. I've tried virtually all the other carriers in Austin - Sprint, Verizon, and TMobile. They are all a joke. However, the moment someone introduces a decent service with tethering I will be gone from AIO.

Extremely poor reception. Lucky if I can even get text messages... let's not even get started on dropped calls. Reception is practically useless all over Austin not just the north side.

Reception is poor. Have to go outside to talk on my phone. Has been this way forever. Neighbors have the same problem. We are all thinking of switching to a new carrier. Please fix this problem or we are gone.

cell service good downtown and decent at my house in cedar park. I ride the metrorail every day and service simply doesn't exist in much of east Austin and west of I-35 until I get north of crestview station / n Lamar. service is really solid at Kramer and Howard stations and spotty at lake line. are other folks experiencing no service in east Austin?

at best I have 3 bars but when on the phone, I know the clock is ticking before the call is dropped.

In the last few months phone and data reception have dropped substantially. Now get dropped calls and no data service in places which had no problems in the past. I have been a customer for 12 years and am now looking to leave Sprint. Sprint will give you a 4G Lte map that shows the whole west side of Austin having 4G Lte, but on our Iphone 5 other than occasional momentary flashes of 4G Lte (not usable)as I drive 620 there is no 4G Lte. When you contact Sprint they provide excuses but nothing changes.
