I work downtown. I get no reception, ever. How does AT&T not have decent service downtown in the 4th largest city in the USA? WTF?

AT&T SUCKS! It drops every other call. Seems like they know this and don't care!

T-Mobile

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | I-45N | Canino Rd., Houston, TX 77037 |

Absolutely awful 3G connectivity in this area. T-Mobile phones like my own(HD2) and guests with a range of other makes and models seem to indecisively hop from the various types of towers in this area, which makes for a sketchy at best internet experience. Calls dropped on a regular basis. T-Mobile service in this area is a nightmare. Proceed with caution.

Sometimes drops calls (1 out of 8 or so). Data is slow though. btw Also comcast internet is terribly slow in the heights. So is Clear, when many people get on in the evenings.

Poor reception throughout Rice campus, Med Center and now Upper Kirby. I always have to walk out of my house / workplace to receive calls, and reception is patchy at best even outside. Customer Service is pretty lousy as well, and they keep promising a tower in the Med Center "in a month". Lies, AT&T. I'm taking my business to Verizon starting next week.

Worked great up until around April 2011. Then went to one bar. Numerous dropped calls, etc. Makes me think they have lost a tower in this area.

Sprint

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Blackhalk | Hughes, Houston, TX 77089 |

I had Sprint in the Past and I had to get another service provider because of the missed text and calls. But that was back in 2005. I am glad I made the switch back to Sprint because of all the providers capping the data or slowing down the speeds down to EDGE a.k.a T-Mobile! But over all I am overly pleased with Sprint. I have only had one dropped call and that was in the underground basement of the Science museum here in Houston.

No reception, or a lot of dropped calls whenever you do get reception. I have been with T-Mobile for many many years, and this is the worst ever. I no longer have contracts with them, so I might look for something better if this doesn't clear up soon.

Excellent Tech support (Thanks Tom) and customer service. My I-Phone 4 (officially unlocked - $1000 from UK - I just hate contracts) works great except the Data channels for 3G / 4G not compatible with T-Mobile. I only get 2G service for Data speeds. It should be OK for everyone if they merge with AT&T (not less than 1 year).

AT&T IS HORRIBLE IN HOUSTON. I have both AT&T and Verizon phones. The AT&T phone is pretty much a paperweight. The Verizon phone works great pretty much everywhere, even in the elevators and the tunnels. Go Verizon!

Signal is 3G only and Strength is a mere 28% in my office. Verizon has a much stronger signal in the same location.

Horrible reception, either no data, slow 3G or sometimes Edge only. AT&T says they have a problem but have been "working on it" for months now. It seems to worse every day.

I've had all the big carriers... .AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Nextel. Nothing measures up to Verizon. Even in elevators in the Williams Towers, my services is flawless. You get what you pay for, and coming from AT&T, thats horrible service in the Houston Area.

Phone had reception up until April 8th 2011, now I cannot receive phone calls or text but the apps (Facebook, Twitter) still work. I currently pick up someone from the Metro bus stops and it isn't safe to be without a line of communication..especially for women. Get it together Sprint or lose a 10 yr plus customer (with multiple lines).

Verizon customer for almost 10 years. We've never had more than 2 bars (out of 5) in the house, and normally it's either 1 bar, or no service. We've had Verizon tech people to the house... they say it's just a bad service area, due to lots of trees and other obstructions. But, they continue to take our money, even though we can't make a call from our home. Service around town is usually pretty good.

I work in the Med Center, and my reception has gone from poor to none lately at work AND at home (home is on Bissonnet) - this is incredibly frustrating because the only time I have coverage is when I'm transiting which is maybe twenty minutes a day. Several people I've spoken to with iPhones complain of this problem at the med center. Why won't AT&T give this area more towers?
