1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 620 and River Place | Big VView, Austin, TX 78730 |

Terrible reception inside River Place neighborhood. Looking for a carrier that has good reception in the hood.

Spring PCS reception is generally goodin Austin; however, like clockwork, always drops calls when traveling in either direction on 2222 in between MOPAC and Mt. Bonnell Road. People I talk with can even anticipate the timing. Ridiculous.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Far West Blvd. | Woodhollow Dr., Austin, TX 78731 |

I live in the Ridge apartments, and I've got 2-3 bars on standby, but as soon as I answer a call, the reception drops to 1 bar or less, and I lose the call literally every time. It's ridiculous. Reception outside of the apartment complex, but still near Far West is decent. Reception on campus is not so bad, and actually, reception is acceptable in most places. However, there is a definite dead spot in the Rockdale-Temple area for me.

I get fine calls at home, work and around town. The number of bars is typically low, 1-3 however that seems to not effect the call quality. bad: at the super target on 183 I get into an extended area and calls will go strait to voicemail, with spotty call reception.

Constant dropped calls and I cannot even call out at times. T-Mobile has the absoloute worst customer service I have ever experienced. If you are planning on living in another city maybe they are not bad, but the infrastructure in Austin is not so good and therefore I would highly persuade you not to go with this organization. Also, if you ever have a problem with billing this organization is the worst experience I have ever had with attempting to rectify the problem. The combination of poor phone service and customer service make this company a complete thumbs down.

I get absolutely no reception in my apartment. My roommate has AT&T and gets ok reception, usually 2 or 3 bars, so I have to use hers when we're at home. This phone has great reception on campus and in Houston, though.

I've been very happy with T-Mobile coverage in and around the city of Austin, but there are a few blatent dead spots they need to fix. 2244 (Bee Caves) near Barton Creek has a spot where the calls always drop. I35 up to Waco has several dead spots and dropped call areas. Forget about using your phone in places like Jonesboro. There is no service.
