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.

I get consistently good basic service using an eight year old basic phone. Reception is excellent indoors. Texts work fine. Too bad the service is so pricey. No idea about 3g, 4g or voicemail as I don't have those services.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Westheimer | Gessner, Houston, TX 77063 |

I switched phones two months ago. Before switching phones I had terrible service but after getting my new phone my service is much much better. I usually have LTE and when I do not I have 4G. Once in a while I will a call where I dial the person and it appears they answer but I do not hear anything so I redial. Not sure if it's my phone or theirs. Overall happy with service and pricing is great.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 288 To 610 West Loop | Beltway 8 at Blackhawk, Houston, TX 77089 |

Horrible, despicable reception and service on most all voice calls in and around Houston, up and down Beltway, Westpark Tollway, Bellaire to Gulf Frwy. I can always rely on 2-3 dropped calls during 1 30 min conversation, very, very frustrating and embarrasing service, especially when on the phone with client, or my boss, if able to hold down a call, sounds like I am in a tunnel. Would love to cancel this crappy contract with T-Mobile it is really costing me major business since I don't want to risk having dropped calls on clients and contacts, btw data is s s s slow, unless tethered to wifi... ..pathetic

Get no service at my home. May get one bar pop up now and then. Cannot call, text, get emails, internet. Might get call now and then but have to go outside for any reception. Have to get in the car and drive to another area to use my phone. On top of $85 a month for no service, buying an expensive Galaxy phone, and a big penalty to cancel, going to a Sprint store(can't make call at home)many times, and over 30 min chat online; all I get over and over from chat is "I am sorry,tempory situation, towers being updated." Worked in Katy, Tx last Sept-May, phone rarely worked there either, unless I went outside, still drops. Went to Ind. and Tn over summer and phone worked great. Tired of paying $85 mo and want out.

AT&T

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Blackhawk | Beltway 8, Houston, TX 77089 |

I do have to give a lot of props to AT&T. I have had all the major carriers, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and even Cricket.. And AT&T is by far the best on everything, dependability and coverage by far the most important. Everywhere I go around Houston, or suburbs I get LTE services.. And if I don't "4G" is still very dependable and fast! The previous carrier I had was Sprint which was by far the worst of ALL! Horrid in-building LTE coverage.. I would walk in to work (6 story building) and anywhere near the elevators no service of LTE but with AT&T even get coverage in the elevator and hold a conversation. By far AT&T is the BEST carrier! No problems what so ever! Highly recommend it!

Since I signed up with Verizon the service has been awful. Instead of 4g LTE I receive 3g and hardly any bars. Lines break up and static.

The last few months has been awful! I NEVER have 3G or 4G data coverage. Most of the time I have no data signal. Texts come in when I leave work for home (where I can use wifi) and most of the time I can't even get a call to go out. It's not just my phone because my co-workers who have T-Mobile also get no data / signal here.

Same situation as everyone is having. Long term loyal Sprint customer. Then one day without any warning, the signal just dropped and it's been for months that I do not get calls, I receive text messages as sometimes 6-7 hours later. I called them and they told me that due to upgrade to LTE some of the towers are not functioning well.

about 10 months ago I had service at my job and at home. All of a sudden they said they were maintenacing the towers. They never let us know in advance and I get no signal at all now. I had to call to find out and they are still changing me the same price for service that I am not getting. Tired of the unprofessionalism of Sprint. I have been a loyal customer for over 7 years. I'm done!

TMOBILE signal over here SUCKS! When I'm home I have either 1 or 2 bars. When calling out I'm hearing nothing but dead air, then a mgs tone on the screen saying "CALL FAILED". Try calling out again and getting the same thing over and over. Can't say how many times I get dropped calls. Picture mgs wont go through and neither are my incoming calls. People will text to say that they are calling me, answer my phone but looking at my phone, it will never ring. 30-mins to an hour later I will get the voicemail. What kind of mess is that??

Only 1 bar, dropped calls, and can't send any pic messages. Regular text gets through about 75% of the time. SUCKS!
