When I had Verizon I would lose service near the most interior walls. Now that I'm with T-Mobile (for 2yrs.) I get full bars in and out. You should never have to step outside you home to talk on your cell.

Verizon

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Dairy Ashford | West Park, Houston, TX 77082 |

Reception fine until new tower placed just South of Dairy Ashford and Westpark intersection on East side of Dairy Ashford. Reception sporatic enough to keep phone from roaming to better tower but constantly drops calls. Tried 2 different Verizon phones, same thing. Outside of this area seems to work OK.

Reception was fine until a new tower was put up just South of the Dairy Ashford and Westpark intersection on the East side of Dairy Ashford. Now the reception is sporatic enough so that it won't allow the phones to roam an alternate tower but drops any call that connects constantly. Have tried two different Verizon phones with no improvement. Outside of this area the phone seems to work fine.

AT&T

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | W. Lake Houston @ Lakeshore Subdivision | W. Lake Houston / Lakeshore, Houston, TX 77044 |

Usually passing the Shell gas station coming from the Beltway 8 on W. Lake Houston the reception drops almost completely. Once entering the Lakeshore subdivision it'll disconnect or maybe get one bar. Cingular reception is usually very good, but everyone that comes out here has the same problem, especially inside the house. We'll have to go outside sometimes just to make / receive a call.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Albany St. | Tuam, McGowen, Houston, TX 77006 |

In our 3-story town house, reception is good on the 3rd floor but only 1 bar on the 1st and 2nd floors (meaning calls get missed, and calls are impossible to make).

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | West Houston Center, Houston, TX 77082 |

Very very poor service. I always have to stand in the middle of the street talk. Even thought the bars show atleast 3, you can never have a peaceful conversation. In a 2 minute conversation, I end up saying hello for more than 90 secs.

Great Service! Never a dropped call! always receive calls (though I might reject them sometimes) always get my txt in on time, and out when they need you to. Had Sprint, so glad i'm outta that! BEST COVERAGE EVER! it really is no lie.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | S. Rice | Beechnut, Houston, TX 77096 |

I am on my FOURTH Sprint cell phone and not one has been able to get reception at my house. I also don't get reception when driving past Bellaire High School, Meyerland Plaza, or at my office (when I get calls at my home or office I have to run outside). I have been with them since 2000 when I was younger and my parents payed for the service. Because they were paying for it I accepted it. Now that I am on my own I have changed to Verizon and the reception is great. The bills are much higher, but at the end of the day being able to actually use my cell phone is the most important quality for me.

Service is awful. We get no service inside the house. We have to stand in the middle of the street to get ATT calls. Quite inconvenient during rush hour.

When I step into my home I get one bar or my phone often goes into roam. If I am standing on the sidewalk infront of my house I get two bars, but I still drop 9 out of 10 calls. Sprint reception in this area is horrible.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Belt E and Us 90 | Us 90 and Belt N, Houston, TX 77044 |

Its a 50 50 chance that my cell will either lose reception or disconnect calls. Before I had a razor and I lost connection every single time I went past us 90 going South on the Belt toward Wallisville. Since I changed phones to a Samsung blast I don't have that problem any more, if u have problems with your T-Mobile I advise you complain, or change phones.

T-Mobile

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | N Main | I-45, Houston, TX 77009 |

Excellent and consistent coverage indoors and out all over Houston (except at the 610 / Memorial Drive / RR tracks intersection by Memorial Park, where nobody I know of gets reception) as well as in Boston, New York City, Montreal, Seattle, Miami and their broad environs. Even works seamlessly in elevators. Only reception problems are in deep interiors of buildings built heavily of concrete. However, have had problems with customer service overseas and with handsets evidently designed to break down four months before the end of 2-year contracts.

Reception is never a problem inside or outside of my office building / parking garage... I can even continue a phone call while riding the elevators, without any dead pockets. People are always astonished and ask me quite frequently who my carrier is.

Never anything less than 100% service with T-Mobile, for 18 mos. running. Phones have worked without fail everywhere in the Houston area, Austin area, and down the coast to Corpus. Big improvement over Cingular's unpredictable service.
