Cell signal in the office is nearly nonexistent if you are more than 5 feet from a window. A coworker has Verizon and has NO problems with service. I'm lucky if I can even get a text message to go through. You can forget about a telephone call or internet service.

The cell reception is terrible. I've heard that complaints have been given for years, but no improvement.

I checked one star because in my house I occasionally get reception. But more often than not my calls drop. If I want to have a conversation, I pretty much have to stand in the front yard. Very convenient.

Vertizon used to be our go to phone service but they have been willing lately to let us go. Moving from the Galera west to Hwy. 6 has produced a very poor signal resulting in terrible service. We choose this company for its wide network but we expected that we would be serviced within the city limits. Comcast learned a few years ago about taking customers for granted. Beware Verizon you could be next to suffer the consequences of poor customer relations.

everytime I call from my apartment people say they can't hear me. I even have wi fi and connection is terrible. I was told there are plenty of towers in my area but still have terrible reception at Westheimer and Wilcrest major streets.

While I use MetroPCS, they use T-Mobile as a signal carrier. At the street I see LTE at -116 dBm, we often drop to WCDMA, hsps+, Edge. The signals drop to -121 dBm, which is effectively the dead zone. Calls are often sent directly to voice mail, and messages can arrive hours later. We often never hear a ring, but a voice mail notification pops up, to say we missed the call. Complaints about the service can NOT be made because no one knows to who or where to do so. That's because they are retailers, and have nothing to do with the carrier.

I forgot to mention we have no problems with texts, sending or receiving. About a year ago, we went thru a period of a few weeks of not receiving texts promptly, but that problem has been resolved and we have had no issues since then. The texts always involved my husband's windows phone. TMo has been great, we have unlimited everything (2g for 2 phones) and spend about $150 for three phones, paying on one, extra data for another, insurance, and an extra line which was $10. They have never ever changed my bill, which another reviewer complained of. I've had the same carrier for years. Really cannot complain.

I have never had a problem with coverage at my location. The only time I have a problem is when I'm on the way to Dallas. There is a dead spot outside Fairfield. Otherwise I have enjoyed TMo very very much. Customer Service has been wonderful. I have a great plan. I have been researching carriers wondering if there is anything cheaper (Sprint having a good sale now but I dont't think Sprint has as good coverage as TMo) and read a review from a techie. He said that a lot of times, the problem isn't with the carrier, but the phone and its soft or hardware. That's just my two cents. I have a Samsung Galaxy 3 and bought it at WalMart for $200. I have dropped it several times on tile floor, never a shattered screen. I am satisfied with TMo and with my Galaxy Samsung phone. My husband who has a Windows phone likes it, and my daughter who lives in Dallas and has an iPhone has not problems with TMo either.
