2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | 5518 Orchard Villas Circle, Roanoke, VA 24019 |

I have had Sprint for 7 years, since I moved to Southwest VA I've only had but problems with the service. Once you leave Roanoke area, the calls begin to drop, like rain drops from the sky. I have called them more than once, but there is no fix in sight. As other's have said, too many dropped calls for a service that is so expensive. If my product had this many issues, I will assure you we would not be in business.

Missed very important call while inside the library. Moved to window... No bars. Can only get reception if I'm outside of building. Will go back to Verizon!

I am on the 2nd floor of an office building and get dropped calls and poor reception constantly. All co-workers have other cell phone providers without this problem. I have had dropped calls near Bonsack area as well, but otherwise ok service. I wouldn't have expected this out of at&t... good thing I'm in the 1st week of my 30 day trial! I'll try it out for another week, but looks like I'll be cancelling service at this point.

Dropped calls like rain falling??? What in the world? I've been with ATT for over 10 yrs and this year has been absolutely lousy. Now trying to find out if Sprint or Verizon are best. Sprint has a new 30-day plan, where you can give them a try for that time, and return everything if it doesn't work.

Mostly good service, there are a few areas around town where I'll drop to 1 to 2 bars, but I can still make calls and browse the web. AT&T is no good here, but Sprint keeps up very well with Verizon.

Cell signal fluctuated between 0 and 2 bars, but still couldn't connect a call in this area. Very poor reception for a company claiming to have the best coverage!

Rarely have cell phone reception and even then it's usually only one bar. Calls to my cell frequently go straight to voice mail when I'm at home because there's no reception.

AT&T is the worst cell phone company I've had to deal with. Turn onto Route 311 and the phone is useless. Also the most dropped calls of any network! Days left on my contract and I'm out of their.

My phone coverage, even when surrounded by lots of brick buildings (commercial, residential and religious) has been pretty good. Doesn't matter whether I'm driving in the neighborhood, near the mall, the airport or even downtown, the reception is consistent and reliable. Verizon delivers.

Receive full bar coverage here at 460 near the Wal-mart in Bonsack. As well as airport area in a basement. Even still had two bars going though the Tunnels at the Airport!

my phone stopped getting decent reception inside my building three months ago; I understand this deterioration affects the entire campus, yet Sprint refuses to acknowledge any problem. Switching phones has yielded no improvement, but T-Mobile and Verizon reception is fine.

The worst. You can have coverage going one way down a road and on the return trip (same road) have nothing, nada, zip. You get very spotty notification on voice mail and unless you like standing outside to make and receive your calls, then pass this one by. Me, I like to use the phone inside buildings, too.
