T-Mobile here in Steiner Ranch is horrible! Coverage is poor and with the HTC HD2 which is a pretty crappy phone to begin with service is virtually non-existent. Multiple calls to T-Mobile and they claim they are "checking their network." Always comes back the network is "fine." Then what the heck is the problem??? Replaced the phone with the same model once and it is still horrible. I just want out of the contract and credited for the numerous dropped calls!

Never had any trouble with signal or dropped calls until my phone aged. ie. dropped it, threw it, ran over it, washed it, swam with it... Got a new one and excelent service. Wouldn't think of having anyone else for a provider. I travel quite a bit and go boating, and still got service when all my iphone buddies did not. :-D

AT&T refuses to admit their bad service is the reason that I am on my 4th phone. I take care of my phone. It has a protective rubber cover and gets put into another case when I put it in my purse. Calls locally here in Austin get dropped, and calls to Houston also get dropped regardless if I am inside or outside. I try to dial a number and it drops the call before it ever starts ringing on my end. Today I called downtown Austin and the person on the other end told me he couldn't understand me because I was breaking up so bad. The closest cell phone tower to me is at 4301 Slaughter (5.4 miles), and 4525 IH 35 South (7.2 miles). I feel lucky if I can get in touch with my sister whose house is only 4 miles away from me.

none of the carriers have signal in this apartment complex. however, t mobile has a wifi connection for free that you can use your wifi on and therefore get great fantastic service. when using the wifi connection it doesn't go against your minutes. I believe this is the only carrier that offers this solution. t mobiles customer service is the best I've ever had. I just bought the g 2 x. Great phone.

While I've had all kinds of problems with Sprint's trying to sell me 4G laptop connectivity and not delivering (went thru 2 devices, 3 major American cities, no luck) and Sprint's having sold me a very poor phone (HTC Hero - absolute piece of garbage), until now I had no complaints about their coverage. Just moved to the northwest hills of Austin and the calls drift in and out and drop regularly in my new house. Three strikes Sprint, you're out. I'm going to find another carrier after *12* years!

Almost no reception at all. Calls are full of static and frequently dropped. I walked around the complex and couldn't get more than one bar. Ironically, I live half a mile from the Cricket Store.

Hopeless service inside my home - I can't successfully make or answer a call indoors. Callers report hearing the ringing stopping, then nothing after I hit the green button to receive the call. Unreliable while standing in my back yard. Calls get dropped every 5-10 minutes, words get dropped every minute. I get notified of voicemail when the phone never rang and AT&T reports no missed calls. For important calls I have to get in my car and drive a mile away. I'm very disappointed in AT&T.

Sprint claims that this is in one of there best coverage zones, but I can't even send and receive phone calls or text messages. At best you can only hear evey other word and expect the call to be dropped every few seconds.

For about a week now, there has been zero reception in the Brushy Creek Area, or when there is reception it simply says "Emergency". When I leave the Brushy Creek area and go to the Arboretum area, or other parts of Austin, reception is fine.

i recently moved to austin and live with friends on the south side of the city. My phone says I have at least 3 bars but continues to drop calls. When I try to call out it is silence and no ring. I use to live in Chicago and had great service even when living in a basement apartment I'm very disappointed!
