1 Out of 5 (1 star) | E. 51st | 183, Austin, TX 78723 |

The reception in our home is very bad, dropping voice. We used to have AT&T before, I will be going back.

Unable to receive texts from AT&T on the Sprint network after update from Sprint. Called Sprint service and Sprint said they had no means to test or diagnose the problem and attempted to blame their interoperability on AT&T although it was due to a Sprint update. They had no idea what was wrong and were unable to diagnose the problem. Completely incompetent. Canceled contract due to poor service and incompetence. Suggest Sprint users to cancel Sprint, rebel against contracts and excessive charges by providers.

Sprint is solid. Better than my girls t mobile and my brothers AT&T by along shot... even in remote areas I still get great coverage. Also in the last few years their customer service is actually good doing a 180 there. They're cheap too, and they have a couple of real nice phones.

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | University of Texas Campus (all Over) | Guadalupe To Red River; Dean Keeton To MLK, Austin, TX 78712 |

My phone is useless on campus. Useless. I don't get dropped calls; I don't even GET calls. Internet, weather apps, news updates, sending texts--forget it. When I walk of campus, my phone jingles, and I have 20+ emails, texts, and voicemails. AT&T is worthless here. I'm not sure what I am going to do in this case, but since I have a lawyer provided to me through UT, I promise I won't be sticking with AT&T

I go to UT and service here sucks. I thought it was just me, but I know a couple of areas that no one gets good service. Seems pretty consistent that all phone companies are making people pay for no service, you're not alone!

Coverage in this neighborhood is great, but if you live in the 5350 Burnet apartments, you will need to buy a network extender. There is almost no service at all inside the building. This seems to be a problem for people on the first floor, in particular. Before I got a network extender, I couldn't carry on any conversations on my phone at all. Couldn't send texts, either. With the equipment, it's much, much better. My phone's GPS has no idea where I am when I'm connected through the extender, but that's fine. If I need to look up a map at home, I can just do it on my computer.

T-Mobile's enhanced service in the Austin / Central Texas area. Service on the Blackberry 9700 with T-Mobile works very well. 9 / 8 / 2010

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | 21st St. Jester Dorm, Austin, TX 78705 |

I just dropped off my daughter at Jester Dorm at Univ of Texas. AT&T has no coverage in a dorm with 3000 students! I was in the lobby and outside trying to call my daughter's cell and I had four bars (as did she) and no calls went through. You dial the number and you just get silence. I asked the receptionist in the dorm and she said it was long standing problem. This is crazy in many ways including the fact that I was staying on campus in the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center! This is one of the largest dorms in the US and there are no land line phones in the dorm rooms. How can AT&T not put up a tower nearby to fix this mess. Same problem with text messaging by the way.

I'm using Boost Mobile (Sprint subsidiary) Blackberry 8330. No dropped calls, great network reliability and such a major improvement from having been with AT&T for 6 years. Service Coverage I've noticed is excellent in the Scofield Ridge Subdivision. I've also traveled all over Pflugerville, Round Rock and NW Austin and haven't had one dropped call yet in now 9 months. People - check out Boost Mobile, its $60.00 a month for UNLIMITED EVERYTHING, plus $4.95 taxes ($64.95). Just a good value and good network here in the Austin / Central Texas area.
