1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Curtin St. | Ella Blvd., Houston, TX 77018 |

I consistently have calls drop. I have contacted T Mobile and requested a boost which seems to have worked for awhile but now is as bad as ever. Not sure if a better quality phone would help (I've used low-end Nokias). However, have had friends over with better quality phones (also on T Mobile network) and they have calls dropped as well.

Calls dropped frequently but texting great. Calls also very static and difficult to hear. Can't wait for ATT contract to expire. Would not recommend them for cell phone service.

In my apartment, my reception is zero (Sometimes I can place a call if I go out on the balcony). Everyone in our building has the same complaint with AT&T. Voice mail pops up 1-2 days later. When I'm out in the world, my phone vibrates once and I have a Missed Call At the Medical Center, while people everywhere are using wire-less, AT&T is use-less. I can't wait until 03 / 29 / 10. Then it's bye, bye AT&T. I wonder how Boost does?

AT&T is terrible in this area, and really bad in my apartment. It's terrible in the ship channel and terrible on the road on the way to work. I'm leaving AT&T and looking at this site for answers on who to go with.

no reception, when you do get reception it is very poor - you have to be outdoors in a certain spot with out moving, like a robot. you have to search for the magic spot to get reception.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Rice University / Galleria, Houston, TX 77081 |

The bars show up sometimes but even at 5 bars I drop calls. The call quality is horrible, conversation breaks up every 5 seconds or more. It's been like this all over Houston sinced I moved here a month ago. Had perfect reception in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest before that. Am getting so frustrated that it will be worth the fee to switch over to Sprint or someone else.

Can't get reception in home. Dropped calls have increased over the past 6 months everywhere in the WEst NW side of town. Can't deal with it any longer.

T-Mobile doesn't work at my house in Champions Creek, which is all the way North on Champions Dr. where Champions Golf Course and Raveneaux Golf Course meet. I've called T-Mobile and they are aware of the issue, but have no immediate fix. I am probably going to switch to Cingular or Verizon based on the posts.

This problem started about 3 months ago and has gotten steadily worse. The Apple store switched my phone out today because at least 75% of my calls were dropping. He said that if the new one does the same thing, it is AT&T. Sure enough, I got home with the new phone and five calls dropped right away. If you are thinking of a new iPhone or any other phone with AT&T as your service provider, be careful. The wireless service is unreliable and their customer service is pathetic.

No service in buildings, 1 or 2 bars outside (in the hot sun) but the calls drop even outside and the 3G works rarely. Tell me again why I am paying them >$100 a month?

90% of all calls are dropped inside and outside home. Customer service was anything but helpful. She suggested I get in my care and drive to make a call or receive one.

I usually get like 3 to 2 bars there. It's ok. I don't get dropped calls. And you can still text. But needs improvement. Like in the donut heaven at thAt intersection I only get one bar.
