4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Lomo Alto | Glenwick, Dallas, TX 75205 |

On 1 bar of LTE signal data rates are always at least 8 Mbps down and 5.62 Mbps up indoors. Depending on signal they can be as high as 27 Mbps down and 11 Mbps up. No problem with calls. Signal here is better than AT&T or Verizon.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Preston | Royal, Dallas, TX 75225 |

Very spotty and unreliable connections. At home I lose connection from room to room. There have been several times I have had to restart phone to recapture connection. Making what should be a quick process, less than 15 sec take 7 to 10 minutes. AT&T cost more but I have watched my girlfriends ATT plan always out perform on coverage area and data speed. Tmobile:not such a deal when it doesn't work in alot of urban places.

Sprint has the worst service I have ever experienced both locally and traveling. Our phones don't work in our house and drop calls all over Dallas most times they don't even ring and just show a voicemail. The slow data may also be one of the most frustrating things about sprint. I never knew just how good I had it with AT&T. When everything works the way it should, you defiantly take it for granted. My wife and I joined Sprint because she supposedly got a discount through her employer. At the Sprint store they gave us the paperwork to fill out to get the discount but Sprint has not given any such discount and won't let us out of the contract. Stay away!

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | DFW Airport, Dallas, TX 75261 |

I work at DFW Airport. For the good part of a year, T-Mobile used to really stink at work. I'd always have plenty of bars but no Internet connection, or extremely slow. Not sure if it was because of all the terminal construction. Recently I'd been out sick for a little over a week. When I came back, it seems service has improved immensely. Where I was getting less than 1 mbps, I now constantly pull in a decent 8 to 9 mbps. No blazing fast, but enough to browse and stream music. Glad the problem was fixed.

I do not remember dropping any calls with Sprint in Dallas, so I don't have any complaints about their cell coverage. However, their data coverage is useless. 4G signal does not penetrate buildings and the 3G speeds are unusable (read: glacial).

Since Jan 20 2014 when at home I can't make or receive phone calls or send or receive text messages. I've had several conversations with ATT and they say towers are being worked on and will be done Feb 3. Today is 2-15-14, I still can't make calls or texts. I've never had this problem until January so I'm not sure what is going on with ATT and their cell towers.

I have been a loyal Sprint customer for many years but ever since they rolled out 4GLTE their service has been very poor. Last year they blamed it on not enough towers, this year I am constantly told it's my handset. I have replaced my HTC Evo 5 times in the last 9 months and still the reception, dropped calls, and lack of connectivity continues. I sit here one month away from my contract expiration wondering if I should finally find a new carrier. That is why I went to this site, to see if there was a better provider for my area. I run a business from home and this is my primary and only phone. It might be time to switch.

I very rarely get dropped calls I spend time all over metroplex. I've had ATT for 13 years. Have no complaints about the customer service. However, it's far too expensive. They gouge you on prices because they know the smaller companies can't keep up with the quality if reception.

I miss about 1 out of every 3 phone calls. The calls go straight to voicemail because the service is so bad. I'll have full bars until someone calls me or I am trying to dial out. Then it suddenly drops to zero bars. Sptint is just terrible. I have also called support several times, and there is absolutely no way to get out of the contract without paying the fee, even if the service doesn't work on your phone.

I live in Garland Tx. A couple of years ago I switched from AT&T to MetroPCs because of cost. The service with metro was ok and improved over time. However since the merger with T-Mobile my service is horrible at work in east Dallas. I will show 3 bars then try to use Pandora or some other streaming app and all of a sudden nothing. At home in Garland I have no problems.

I just moved to the Dallas area from Seattle, WA (Sept 13). I am on a Verizon contract. I have found the cell coverage with Verizon in Dallas to be frustrating. I now know why so many folks walk outside to make phone calls! I cannot get any reception inside my house (Highland Park) and minimal at my office (Irving). I cannot send text messages from my office. I did find strong Verizon signals in zip code 75093. Will need to find an alternative since I can't run the business with spotty cell service... .

Sprint LTE service is very bad. I have had my iPhone 5 for one year and very rarely get 4g service even though numerous calls to Sprint indicate that my area has "strong" coverage. 3G is unbelievably slow. I have to pay $220 to terminate my contract and I'm out. I tried to give Sprint a chance, but reception is beyond horrible

Wheni first started my 2 year contract everything was great, I would always have medium to full 4g LTE signal. I would even tease my brother about how good my network speeds were vs his with metropcs on his galaxy s3. Now about 4 months later, the service is terrible! I keep looking up my area n the coverage map but I guess no one has updated it in a long time.. I get one or two 3g bars every once in a while, and the majority of the time I'm in a "roaming" mode or have no signal at all when the map says I have full 4g LTE signal. Now I'm ashamed to pull my "awesome looking phone" with my "expensive" network out of my pocket in front of my brother because I have NO SIGNAL!. Multiple calls to Sprint just end in apologies to me and they say there is nothing they can do at the moment because the techs are working on the towers but they never say bye without first telling me to hang on a little longer the signal will be turned back on in "no time". I keep trying to get a refund but they say they can't do that.. so if you live within 15 miles of 75253 or beltline rd and 175 beware! Do your homework before signing a two year contract w sprint! You have been warned! Also I shouldn't say this but I believe everyone should know about it.. Sprint store at town east mall gives their CSR "little bonuses" to go on blogs and websites and post fake "good and very good" reviews on there I know this because my girlfriend works for Sprint as a CSR. Customer Service Representative. She shows me the bonuses she gets for every fake review she makes. That's bullshit if you ask me. BEFORE YOU SIGN THE CONTRACT THEY ASK WHERE WOULD YOU BE USING YOUR PHONE THE MOST! BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOU ANSWER HERE BECAUSE I HAVE PROOF THEY USE THIS INFO TO MESS WITH YOUR SERVICE LATER ON. A FRIEND OF MINE WHO LIVES LIKE 10 HOUSES DOWN THE STREET HAS THE SAME PHONE I DO. AND STRANGELY ENOUGH HE ALWAYS HAS GREAT SIGNAL IN AND AROUND HIS HOUSE! HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THEN FOR ME TO GET LITTLE TO NO 3G SIGNAL EVEN WHEN I'M AT HIS PLACE?? WE WERE TRYING TO FIGURE THIS OUT AND THE ONLY THING HE DID DIFFERENT THAN ME IS THAT HE SAID HE WAS GONNA USE HIS PHONE THE MOST AT WORK. WICH IS DOWNTOWN DALLAS. BUT YOU GUESSED IT, HE HAS VERY POOR SIGNAL THERE EVEN WHEN HIS COWORKERS ENJOY A VERY FAST 4G LTE FROM SPRINT AS WELL. BOTTOM LINE, WE THINK THEY USE THE INFO YOU GIVE THEM TO MESS WITH YOUR SIGNAL..

Network traffic is so bad that calls do not ring through to the phone. I only know that I have missed a call when my voice mail notification goes off. Called 5 times because a credit for overcharging was not being issued. Five clerks told me they were processing it and then it was never done so I think upper management was overriding them. I paid early termination fee to get out of contract. My monthly bill was $113 for unlimited talk text and data. Went with Straight Talk (AT&T) and pay $45 per month.

I have had zero reception for more than an hour in the middle of the business day, in fact in the middle of a business call. Verizon's customer service on-line chat is too busy to answer. For this mu family pays $600 / month!

Just put iphone 4s with Metro PCS (t-mobile)and reception is terrible. The bars jump all over the place, mostly stay on 1 to 3 and then lose service. A lot of the time it shows no service I drove all around this area and coverage is the same; poor.
