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.

Sprint

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Buffalo Speedway and 610, Houston, TX 77054 |

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.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Fairbanks, North Houston Rd. | Terrace Brook Dr., Houston, TX 77040 |

Awful signal level inside my home since about a year ago. Contacted several times and went to their retail where they "updated my SIM". Still dropping or unable to place calls from inside home. About 5 months ago a CSR advised they were in the process of installing a new cell in the area, but haven't seen any improvement if they really installed it. Having checked coverage, I might switch to AT&T after 6 years with this carrier.

I'm inside of a warehouse (in the heart of the warehouse) and T-Mobile has good 3g service outdoors, but the indoor reception is very low, possibly one bar of Edge connection (on occasions when my cell phone gets reception), I have to wave my phone and find a hotspot at my desk for a couple minutes to send one text message.

Usually no bars. Seems incomprehensible that the reception is so poor in this city. I have had better reception in rural TX, even the Grand Canyon..

This is Summerwood Subdivision. Coverage is right on the edge. Sprint has offered to send some type of device to improve reception at my house, so we will see if this helps.

When I complain about no service, they said that I should get my subdivision to approve a tower. I am about 10 blocks from the T-Mobile store and they have reception. Another time they said they would put my address in for better reception.

I have complained since Febuary 2012 about reception and dropped calls. Last Thursday they said a tower is "planned" at Brittmore and I-10 but no one knows when it will be completed. Cell is my only service so yeah, this sux.

No reception at all inside building. 3-4 bars outside. I have been noticing poor quality of T-Mobile recently to reacquire signals.

Service is poor to nonexistent and AT&T will not do anything to help correct the problem I am having. Will be dropping AT&T for another service provider.

Northwest houston has poor reception from ATT. Fairfield you are lucky you can even make a call. If you stand in just the right location and stay you maybe able to have a conversation.

Inside my office building, I miss calls, drop calls and internet connectivity is terrible at best. Even with the phone displays 3G, more times than not, it does not connect to the internet. Things are better when the office clears out, like 4:30 pm. Sounds like the network is overloaded. Add some more bandwidth At&T. At the prices you charge, I should never lose connectivity.

I live about 4 blocks from downtown Houston and both me and my fiancé's phones will not allow any calls and when trying to make a call it just beeps and hangs up... and this is happening on both T-Mobile and Cingular, on both an I-phone and an android... Some calls to LAN lines will go through but just say sorry check the # and try again when it's a 100% known working phone #??

I am unable to hold a conversation at home, I am required to go outside to receive one MAYBE two bars. I have tried to call AT&T multiple times to have someone come out and fix this problem in the area. They have not done anything for me and I am getting ready to move away from this company. They are horrible.
