Had AT&T with a ton of problems years ago. Made the switch to Verizon and have had no problems now for years. (In the meantime, our neighborhood page is constantly posted with questions about AT&T outages and reception problems). Every time I see a new post about AT&T problems, I am once again glad we made that switch to VERIZON.

Always have 1 4g LTE bar, 3G or Roaming (No Bars). Never, ever have been able to get full bars of 4g LTE. I would not recommend Sprint to anyone.

I can only get 0 -1 bar of service in my home. AT&T used to be good, but the last 18 months have been horrible for dropped calls, texts timing out not being sent. AT&T service suggests wi-fi calling in home. NO. my cell phon should work in my home as it had in the previous decade. WTF AT&T? Your service is bad. Leaving after 15 years as a customer.

How did I go from no problems in Smithville to practically no coverage in Austin? Moved into a new place that gets little to no reception

Moved here from DFW area where AT&T service was great. I am lucky to get 1-2 bars anywhere in Austin. Reception has gotten worse over the last 2 years. Now the only way to get reception at home is via WIFI. Called AT&T service, went through all the trouble-shouting protocols and they finally suggested that I might need to upgrade my phones. I find it very strange that both my phones would go out the same day. I confronted AT&T support with that and they agreed. They were no help at all! Based on all the reviews of all the carriers, I think the problem might be with the city of Austin. This is supposed to be a very hi-tec city but it sure has extremely lo-tec Cell communication.

Sprint has gone downhill and it appears they really do not care. Cell signals are horrible.

Trying T-Moble was a huge mistake. The "Digits" app is complete garbage, typical of something designed abroad by someone who doen't even use the technology they are designing. Add constant service interuptions and the absolute worst cutomer service (illeterate and just plan stupidin the Philapenes) and you have complete idiocy. This got SO nasty the local T-Moble stone on South Lamar ordered be out of the store. I was tired of being dissmissed by these people. When I refuse to leave they actually called the POLICE on me! After explaing the situation to responding APD, the suggested "why don't we just stay here and watch over things while you try to HELP this man?" Though the issue was resolved that day, the ongoing problems just continued to continue. AVOID T-MOBILE AT ALL COSTS!

What happened!?! I'm from here. I've always had AT&T. It's terrible now! I just went on vacation to Seattle and my friends with T-Mobile never had any issues. I couldn't even talk with my husband at home - he had to drive nearby and said the same thing. He can't have a functioning conversation at home anymore. What the heck!? I always have 1 bar. This is not how it used to be.
