Hit and miss - mostly miss, was wondering why no replies to texts - becausee morph sent or do not receive replies. Poor reception and chronic dropped calls, I do receive iPhone messages to my iPhone but other carriers - not good. Heard all carriers are bad. What to do?

Have constant dropped calls and seldom more than one bar signal strength. Horrible service! Reviews suggest other carriers are little if any better. What to do??

No reception in house. Minimal outside on porch. Expensive. Will switch providers soon when I figure out who has the best reception on the east side of Austin. Leaning toward Tmobile

I live very close to tower and I get a very strong signal when initially connected to the strongest cell, but T-Mobile quickly rotates phone to weakest cell and phone drops off network inside my home. New phone from t mobile did the same. Area has too many customers, T-Mobile no longer able to offer reliable phone service as a result. If you used to have good service, it is likely degradation of that service is due to T-Mobile selling more plans than they have the capacity to reliably support in your area. I had a fun ride while it lasted, but T-Mobile's wonderful customer service is now just chrome plating on a turd.

Calls drop on a regular basis. Only using this phone for business. Most disconcerting.

Very poor reception of data in the area. good prices for service but can't use data until you drive out of the area. this goes for Virgin Mobile as well because they use the Sprint network also.

I agree with others my phone doesn't work most of the time in my home. I will be talking or move my head and the signal drops. It use to work great when we first moved here 14 years ago. Either there is not enough towers for the amount of people that has moved into the area or they have lowered the power of the signal. We do have more electronics in the house an I pad. I went to the store on William cannon and they gave me a booster but even the booster doesn't get much power. I called the store to have a repair person come out and they told me someone would call me by Fri. It has been about 3 weeks and I still haven't hear from anyone.

Can not use my iPhone inside my home. Do not get alerts or notifications of texts or emails. I constantly see neighbors outside making cell phone calls. Service is terrible.

Tmobile has been my carrier for 7 years now. Prior to having the LTE frequency I had poor coverage. With the purchase and installation of the LTE in the United states I LOOOOOVE my service. Not only do I pay a good taste but I have crazy download speeds. I clocked in 37 mbs a second which is faster then my wifi. I get 4g LTE everywhere I go here in Austin and every month in gets better. I saw alot of negative comments on here about coverage but I have yet to drop down to edge unless I am driving put to San Antonio or Houston my coverage drops to edge which is just phone calls for about 3 to 4 miles of the trip then jumps right back up. I am so happy that gave reinvested back into the company. I use my Internet so much I can't imagine how much I would pay in overages with AT&T or verizon. Shoot I can even share my internet with other ppl with the free Hotspot capability they give you. I also took a trip to Mexico city and took advantage of the free data roaming, international texting and wifi calling. It all worked like a charm and I didn't recieve any crazy charges. Everything was free just like they said. I am so happy I stuck it out with Tmobile. I can't wait to see how much more they grow this year.
