No service in any room of my apartment with a regular iPhone 6. One bar only in LR, which fluctuates in and out of service (same for patio), which is only enough to send and receive text messages, if it's working at all. Sitting in parking lot, two and sometimes three bars if the phone is held up (not on lap). AT&T wants to charge you to "boost" the signal by using high-speed internet service to your apartment, which I don't plan on getting, and there is no guarantee it will work (though a friend said she knew someone who convinced AT&T not to charge him to avoid losing him as a customer). This is not an option for me as I don't have internet at home and don't plan on getting it (service through enTouch). I'm waiting for my portable Karma WiFi device to arrive (YourKarma DOT com) and will use that for internet unless it proves too costly, then will get monthly service (though I doubt it). Karma is a pay-as-you-go service with costs similar to monthly plans. Presently trying to figure which cell phone provider to switch to. One person told me that T-Mobile is good for my area, but on this forum, others say it's not great. Same person said that Sprint has great coverage but horrible customer service. My contract with AT&T expires in Aug., and was planning on going to a pay-as-you-go plan as I bought the phone myself, so looking for same option in new provider.Was this review helpful to you?
Rarely have more than one bar. Thought it was my iPhone 4 so I upgraded to the iPhone 6. Things are not any better. Have missed very important calls due to poor cell service. Sienna needs another tower NOW.Was this review helpful to you?
Lived deeper in Sienna near Ridgepoint HS for over 9 years. Cell reception in 2 story house was never an issue. 3 to 4 bars. Rarely dropping calls. Moved to the front (Anderson Springs) and it is atrocious. One bar just about anywhere in the house. Max 2. I agree. ATT and others need another tower in between wherever. High end homes being built (Riverstone, Sienna) all around. Demand is increasing rapidly. Should be an easy fix, albeit expensive and inconvenient to the big boys...Was this review helpful to you?
I have been with Sprint and T-Mobile and both have poor reception inside Sienna Plantation. But same for Entouch cable and a rep told me that it's from poor or wrong cable wiring set up in Sienna. So maybe a similar issue also that may be causing interference with wireless phone service. We paid a lot of money to live in a nice community but it's like living in the dark ages out here when it's comes to connectivity - so consider yourself warned.Was this review helpful to you?
I made the above review about Sprint. I switch to Cricket, and it has terrible reception. I can at least talk for a little while if I stand in one spot in front of my house (without moving). Once I enter Sienna Plantation it is hit or miss whether I can talk, I can't hold a lengthy conversation with someone without the call dropping several times.Was this review helpful to you?
We recently moved to Sienna Plantation. Prior to moving here, I had Sprint phone service for years and years. I could not get any reception in Sienna Plantation and none in my home. My job requires me to be on call from time to time, and if I was at home or in the neighborhood, I rarely received calls. I switched to Cricket :-) because my better half's phone worked ok in the area. Mine has absolutely no reception in the house. If I stand in a certain spot outside, I can talk for a little while, and if I go walking my dog or jogging, I can get some reception. I have people over and to make a phone call they have to walk outside or up the street.Was this review helpful to you?

My cell reception at my house in the back of Sienna Plantation (close to Scanlan Oaks Elementary) is very poor. I typically get no more than one or two bars. The reception goes completely dead coming off highway 6 on to Sienna Ranch Rd. AT&T is pathetic but I'm grandfathered in to the unlimited text and web therefore it's hard to break from them.Was this review helpful to you?

T-mobile sucks! Will not expand my contract. Bad reception wherever I go / drive in Houston. There is no 4g as advertised., no high speed. Takes forever to get driving directions, actually I can reach destination before get directions! T-Mobile SUCK!Was this review helpful to you?
