We've been with Verizon wireless for 7 yrs. No complaints about customer service or service for that matter. The price is high but I'd rather pay more and know my phone will work as It needs to.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Imperial Valley | Airtext, Houston, TX 77073 |

I've had only about 3 dropped calls but the data service is horrible. Sometimes it is as slow as dial-up and other times it will just lose a connection sometimes for hours. Customer service has been of no help. Completely useless.

US Cellular

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Richmond Ave., Houston, TX 77046 |

US Cellular offers the bare minimum reception in Houston so as to not qualify for"literally zero reception." The service is mostly unusable and is a complete waste of money.

Little to no reception at home. Several drops per call. Hard to even finish a single conversation. Not as bad closer to downtown Houston but terrible for the are I'm located in.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Memorial City Mall | Gessner and I -10, Houston, TX 77080 |

Been with T Mobile for 10 years. Had a Blackberry until May and never really had any problems. Switched to a Galaxy Note II in May and could barely use my phone at home and I work at the airport and sometimes I can use it there. I had to set up a router at home so I can make phone calls. Thats beyond ridiculous. Planning on switching as soon as I can figure out who does get a good signal over here.

Sprint

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | 1960 and Hardy, Hobby, West Rd.& 290, IAH RAC, Houston, TX 77001 |

I have a few locations I work out of. In the 1960 and Hardy are I use to have good reception with decent 4G, then it tanked badly for about 6 months where you could barely get 3G or no data service at all, it has somewhat improved but the network is still slow. In the Hobby area I have no issues but once again the network is still slow. In the 290 and West Rd area I have lousy reception, 3G at best, but very slow. My company uses AT&T and works well in these areas. IAH RAC area I get crappy reception from from my Sprint Phone and my AT&T company, but with being hidden in trees near the airport, no surprise reception sucks. When my company had Verizon they never had any coverage issues just occasional outages, but that was 3yrs ago.

Reception is terrible, cannot have a conversation longer than 1 minute. Internet is non-existent, despite "4G" sign on my screen. Had Verizon before, had absolutely no problems at exact same location.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Methodist Hospital | 6565 Fannin, Houston, TX 77030 |

Had to change from AT&T to Verizon. No reception EVER from AT&T while at the med center. While trying to call from the waiting room, someone said, "You must have AT&T" - which I did. In the elevator, people were on their cells so I asked about their carrier. It was Verizon. I switched and never had a problem - anywhere. Expensive, but worth it - esp during an emergency. Also get reception inside my house. I never could with AT&T.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Fry Rd.And Clay Rd. | Greenhouse Rd.And Clay Rd., Houston, TX 77084 |

I had T-Mobile for about 5 years but changed last year to a straight talk pre paid. For me, T-Mobile had great customer service but I always had a data dead zone on Greenhouse and Clay next to my house. It was just at the intersection. Well I bought a new phone that wasn't compatible with t-mobiles data at the time so I went with a prepaid that used AT&T network. Great 4g coverage but it had terrible customers service. So I tried T-Mobile out again now that my phone is compatible with them. I don't have lte, just 4g hspd+, and the data is really odd. It says I have 3g / 4g most of the time but my speed test fluctuate drastically. One test says I have.5Mbps data speeds and the next I have 10Mbps. So idk. This is the third day of having T-Mobile again so I'm going to keep testing out the speeds.

Sprint

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Beltway 8 | Bammel N Houston Rd., Houston, TX 77086 |

My reception for voice is perfect. I have NO dropped calls, dead air, or white noise. My text messages come through fine with no duplicates or delays. My issue has everything to do with the data. When the LTE was first launching, I was a store manager for Sprint and luckily my area was the very first to get a Network Vision tower with speeds of 35 down and 25 up. It was great. I knew once they started adding LTE to other towers around the city that would decrease which was fine. Fast forward to now and I can't get 4G service in or around my home except if it's 1AM when everyone is sleep and no one is hardly using the service. I called Sprint several times and inquired about this, took my phone to the service centers (3 in total for different opinions), and reset my device twice. To no avail, I had to put my antenna to only pick up 3G which has gotten speedier but only in bursts. This is quite aggravating and Sprint continues to tell me that neither of the 2 towers in my vicinity are bad and are working fine. It's terrible that I can't watch any youtube videos, access simple web pages, or even download a picture message without waiting 2-4 minutes.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 249 and 1960, Houston, TX 77070 |

Ever since T-Mobile teamed up with Walmart the 1st of June 2013, my service has sucked. I travel 249,BW8,Hardy, 610,59 downtown and back. I can count on 2 to 3 dropped calls every morning and evening on the commute. At the house, I can never get reception in certain parts of the house. Have to go outside to talk, so what good is Tmobile? NOT GOOD, RECOMMEND ANY CARRIER BUT THEM, unless you are a walmartion and have not choice, then you clog up the system for everyone else. Switching to Verizon.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Studio 6 | Richmond and BW8, Houston, TX 77042 |

Tethering from my phone is terrible, Most of the time is during peek daytime hours, I traced it to the T-Mobile network and not my pc or phone, I opened a command prompt on my pc and typed in a to trace the rout my connection was taking and the connection timed out on the T-Mobile dns server side. I am somewhat familiar with networking and knew what the ip address was for my phone and at what point it hit the T-Mobile's towers network, this is where I got the timeout message.
