Often only one bar utilizing an iPhone 5s from my residence, which is 1.3 miles away from the mall and 3.8 miles away from the WA state capitol building. Calls often dropped or unable to connect at all. It's absurd, considering my location. Verizon typically has superior coverage by my experience.Was this review helpful to you?
I am giving T-Mobile a below average review because the coverage is only great if you live in Metro area. Soon as you leave city you are in trouble. I used to have T-Mobile and fiercely defended them but after years of T-Mobile making promises that coverage would get better for me I finally just left. I have AT&T now and I have not only superior coverage but I have 4G and LTE everywhere even out of town. That said I can’t recommend T-Mobile unless you live in the city and never leave town. T-Mobile I hope you are listening, if you don't have the towers then at least work on better roaming agreements. In Washington much of the areas you don't cover are covered by AT&T. IDEA, you could close the gaps with roaming agreements temporarily while you invest into better reception for the rural areas. NOTE to listeners don’t be fool by T-Mobiles low plans. Prepaid providers like Cricket Wireless uses AT&T and offers cheap plans plus you get the great coverage unlike T-Mobile, it’s kind of a no-brainer.Was this review helpful to you?
T mobile service is good if your in the city limits but soon as you leave be prepared to drop to 2G service and have bad reception. Had T-Mobile service for several years and every time I called they said the service was about to get better, that was two years ago and they for the most part here in Washington are still using 2G. For GOD sakes T-Mobile get with it covering little slivers of areas in the state doesn't get it done. I just recently switch to AT&T and it was the best thing I every did, price is a bit more but it just WORKS and even in my rural area in Thurston County I get 4G strong every where. Oh wait T-Mobile is still on 2G! Don't believe what T-Mobile sales reps tell you they are only upgrading towers in the major city areas.Here is Washington T-Mobile is not a good choice unless you live in town and never leave.Was this review helpful to you?
I transferred from Verizon after over four years with Verizon. Was paying $190 a month for three phones. Now I pay $100 a month for four phones. Service with Verizon was better in some places in town, but not in my house. Metro PCS is actually better with 4 bars. Considering the over all value, I'm a happy customer.Was this review helpful to you?
My husband had an I phone 4 with excellent Verizon coverage, even in the house. We then bought 2 Samsung Galaxy 4S phones signed up for out first 2yr contract with Verizon. The reception was terrific then suddenly has declined to no ability to text on our property and dropped calls around East Olympia and Lacey. I was told by Verizon that we are in a "variable reception / service area!" We have none to one bar if lucky with signal strength of -115db! If we would have been told that at the Costco Verizon kiosk we would have not signed up! Why pay for service you can't get?!Was this review helpful to you?
I seriously considering moving to MetroPCS - it looks like a good deal. 4 lines for 100 bucks just have to do an auto payment plan per month. Have to pay for phones but can get a great one for 99 bucks - I know downloads will be slow but it is anyway - just need primarily for texting, phone calls. Anyone have any experience with them yet? Coverage area says "satisfaotory" for this area..Was this review helpful to you?
Very poor service, dropped calls, interference, the problems go on and on. Verizon does not care. Have you ever spoken to the customer service people if so that should tell the whole story.Was this review helpful to you?

Can't receive or send msg, or talk. Verizon wants to SELL me some sort of boost modem for $200! What? Pay more over the already exorbitant monthly charges for no service?! The other cell companies are no better in our area. WHAT A TOTAL RIPOFF!Was this review helpful to you?
Useless! Rarely get any reception inside the house. Have to find precise areas and not move to get any reception Almost Every call gets dropped.Was this review helpful to you?
