1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Barker Cypress | Tuckerton, Houston, TX 77095 |

Most calls drop inside the house. We have to stand outside to get any coverage at all. Coverage is pretty bad everywhere in NW Houston.

This comment is to amend the previous statement made on 11.18.2012. I have been a Sprint subscriber since 2004. I have had voice and air card service that entire time. The service has been flawless. I have never had an issue with reception on either service (although I did wish for faster transmit rates on the airless card). My true disappointment is with the lack of 4G service in my area when I was lead to believe it was available.

The rating is for 4G. The 3G reception is available and usually about average. The Sprint coverage map indicates 4G coverage is available throughout Clear Lake City. It is NOT! 4G reception is available near the intersection of El Dorado Blvd.and Space Center Blvd. The reason I bought a Sprint plan is because the coverage map states 4G reception is available throughout Clear Lake City. Obviously, this is a Marketing assessment and NOT a Technical assessment. This is rating is as of 11.18.2012.

Cannot finish a conversation without a dropped call. Company sucks. No reception in the house, only outside.

My coverage has been very good. I’ve been with T-mo for ever can’t remember when maybe over 10 yrs. From phone call’s to data stream it has been great!

The reception is great, but the data is almost non-existent. I narrowed it down to the tower at 770 Rt. 1 S Post Oak Ln. (A3e0112a) Houston, TX. The other towers in this area seems to be just fine.

AT&T is terrible! I barely get voice coverage and no data when I am at work. My smart phone was essentially a dumb phone so I don't even pay for data any more. By far the worst coverage of any cell phone network anywhere in the world I have travellled.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Deussen | West Lake Houston Pkwy., Houston, TX 77044 |

Calls are occasionally dropped. For the other person on the line to hear me clearly, I need to be standing outside on my back porch, or in the front of my house near the windows. Sometimes thos calls break up as well, however. In other areas of my house I only get 1 or 2 bars.

iPhone through AT&T. Constantly dropping call even with signal booster. Tired of having to go outside to make a phone call. Many inquiries to AT&T. Never any improvement. Our business is going elsewhere.

I left Verizon to come to ATT, and now VERY unhappy. messages take hours sometimes to send through, webpages either don't load or take anywhere from 15 min to several hours. I have gone to Apple store and switching phones did not solve the problem. going to go to ATT AGAIN to see what is wrong.

Live Briar forest dairy Ashford area Houston. My reception is pretty poor in and around the house. Goes to one and two bars inside. Maybe three for a bit. I haven't pinpointed the problem. Subdivision does have a lot of trees and older brick houses.

Since ATT went to 4G LTE service the reception for voice, data and text has dropped to almost nothing around the whole city. The most I get is 2 bars on any of my 3 lines that I have. All my friends and relatives that have ATT also are complaining and most have already switched over to another carrier. I plan on doing the same at the end of the year. I have a company cell phone with Verizon that has no problems and it has 5 bars, other friends who went to Sprint also say they have between 4 and 5 bars. The problem seems to be with ATT. But if you call them and complain they say they do not guaranty service, so my question is why am I paying for service with them.

Never really ever had problems with this carrier until they start in with the LTE system. Now I can not get anything over a very very low 3g reception at best at either home or work. Talked to Sprint rep over the phone... yeah like they really care NOT! Informed them that I am realy thinking about jumping ship to Verizon after 12years with Sprint! Not there problem!

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Memorial Dr. | Voss, Houston, TX 77024 |

Reception so poor that I just don't make calls on my cell phone - they would be dropped anyway. The only thing worse than the reception is the customer service. The local AT&T store admits to a major problem in the Memorial area and tries to help, but in the end all they can do is call their service department who will tell even them that service in the area is fine. Can't wait to enroll my family with another provider in the near future.

I have had issues with spring for almost a month now and they continue to tell me they are correcting the issue. It's time now for me to switch back to t-mobile. They have the BEST coverage for me no matter where I go. as well as I have never had any issues with t-mobile. I so regret switching over as I was trying to save a little money on my monthly bill. Live and learn oh well you pay for what you get.

Good for phone calls but data network lacks strength. Always shows full bars when outside the building but takes a lot of time to load mails, maps and videos.
