1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Country Woods Neighborhood | Nicholesawmil, Magnolia, TX 77355 |

Sucks out where I live. Me and my husband both are always getting dropped calls and no one can ever hear us until we walk to the middle of our yard by the woods. It's so annoying thinking about switching.

Switched from AT&T to T-Mobil last year because of all the dropped call / no bar issues. T-Mobile was GREAT until Jan 2014. What happened? Did AT&T gobble them up? They're just as bad lately way too many call failed, missed calls and SMS. Can't even call or text out without rebooting my phone between each call / text. What a pain!

I have been with T-Mobile for at least 12 years and have had very many reception issues. I just moved to Magnolia, TX and I am lucky if I get 2 bars inside where I live. I talked to one of the T-Mobile tech support folks today and he sent me instructions on how to use Wi-Fi calling. Got it set-up but I am still getting only 2-3 bars, at times NONE. I am so disappointed because so many of us use our cells phones as our only phone. Based on the reviews I am reading, I may be forced to change to Verizon. My daughter is on Verizon and will be visiting in a couple of weeks and will see how her reception is here on her phone.

Switched from Verizon 6 days ago and NO ONE can hear me on my I-phone 4s! I go in-and-out on the call! However, my daughter got the same phone and she doesn't have a problem so maybe it's my phone... we'll see. I'm taking the phone back to switch it out. So far though, I prefer my Motorola Droid 2 on VZW. I will update though when I get another phone to try out. * I was "grandfathered" on the unlimited data plan with VZW and didn't want to change to a shared data plan and only get 4 gb per month and pay full price for a new smart phone so I switched to Sprint. If, however, I continue to have issues with Sprint reception after switching phones, I will go back to VZW.

I never had problems with dropped calls or poor reception with this phone or carrier. The only thing I didn't like about Verizon was the price. But, apparently if you want to be able to USE your phone, this must be the carrier to pick! (I am currently finding this out!)

Had great reception in Louisiana. Moved to near The Woodlands 5 years ago. Since we have been here reception is very poor if not there at all. Have made complaints to AT&T. No help from them whatsoever. Will probably switch carriers once contract is up if not before then. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate them a -10.

I have the HTC EVO 4G and I get 4-5 out of 6 bars inside my house and 5-6 bars when I'm outside my house. I have been in the area for about 4-5 months, and I have not had any issues with my service as far as dropped calls or poor reception. However, I do have a 4G phone and I can't get 4G service in this area at all through Sprint. Also, if you go down Nichols Sawmill toward Roberts Cemetery (near Mike's) you only get 1-2 bars if you're lucky. I guess it just depends on where you're located exactly and what kind of tree coverage you have around your house. If you live in this area you know that there are trees everywhere and a large number of mobile homes. Both of these factors will have an affect on your service, so take this into consideration when grading your wireless provider.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 1488 (Lake Windcrest Subdivision) | Lake Windcrest, Magnolia, TX 77354 |

Cannot keep a signal for longer than 3-5 minutes. I'm outside quite a bit, and my phone does not work any better outside than inside. Many times my phone won't ring, and I'll have a voicemail without a missed call. Four people have phones here in this house, and no one can hold a call for more than 5 minutes. AT&T is not the least expensive provider and I do not have good reception. I really wish I knew what the best service was for this area. It would be nice to use the phone since we pay for it every month. These cell phone companies make a ton of money from people--and they don't even provide the service you're paying for. Thanks for the email, text messaging, apps, etc... but what about the phone reception?!?! If anyone has any suggestions for Lake Windcrest subdivision, please let me know. Thank you!

Since getting rid of our LG phones while living in Tomball, neither my husband nor I have ever had any problems with reception. With the LG phones, we constantly had dropped calls and no reception. We were ready to change providers, until we got Sony Eriksson W300i phones. I guess I dropped my phone one too many times and it died, but my husband has had his for three or so years. Now that it is about to die, we want to get new phones. Knowing that the cell phone itself has as much to do with reception as the provider, how does one find a phone that gets good reception?

Yeah! "More bars in more places" really means you'll stop at more bars in more places because you're not going to be talking on your ATT phone! There are three cell towers nearby and I can't get a signal in the house! If I go outside and brave the heat, humidity, and mosquitos I can often get a usable signal, but not always. I don't see how ATT can claim to have good signal reception in more places than the other carriers. I just haven't seen it.

AT&T sucks at my home (and I'm retired so almost always at home). Phone displays "E" for Edge and NEVER displays 3G at home. AT&T is aware of thie "Dead Zone" but expresses no likelyhood of any immediate improvement. When my contract expires in August, I'm switching to another carrier.

Switched from Verizon which had great service for the price of Sprint. I know where the tower is and can see it but I live about a half mile from it and can't get any service in my house my phone goes to roaming on Verizon. Outside 1-2 bars but it usually calls on roaming. I wouldn't suggest switching but it's not all that bad.

Reception is terrible! Sometimes I get 4 bars, sometimes 0 bars. Needless to say, I can't reliably make or receive calls.

Reception is poor. However we just moved from Indiana where it was nil and Sprint refused to let us out of contract because their MAP showed that I should have good reception! Contract is now over and I am looking for a provider with good service in area.

Zero bars inside. 1-2 bars if I walk out side. I have complained until I am blue in the face. The service in my area is awful. They tell me I am only 2 miles for a tower and I should have no problems. Right. I travel all over North Houston and the Woodlands and have spotty service at best. I would recommend this service to anyone.

On Joseph Rd connecting Nichols Sawmill and 1488 the coverage is very dicey and unreliable.

The route Nichols Sawmill / Sea Turtle Ln / Turtle Creek Ln / Doe Trails / Hickory Lane / Spencer Blvd. / Sanders Rd / Sanders Cemetary Rd / Mueschke ("the maze", as we call it) is one of the major routes from Magnolia to SH290 into Houston and the major alternative to SH249 from downtown Magnolia. With Magnolia set to explode in population in the next three years, one wonders why Nextel calls consistently drop out while traversing "the maze", especially around Doe Trails?
