Full bars, LTE, can barely access this site to write my review. I AM SO FED UP with an unusable smart phone in Seattle.

I drop calls constantly with sprint! The only reason I've been with them for over 20 years is Sprint is the only carrier I know of that has unlimited internet..

Okay reception some of the time, but other times not so great. Seems to be average service. Not great but not terrible either.

AT&T

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | NE 80th St. | 15th Ave.NE, Seattle, WA 98115 |

Once in a while, I get dropped if I position myself with my refrigerator directly in between myself (and my phone) and the tower which is on a nearby building. Have overall great coverage for phone and data with iPhone 4s. I'm in Whistler, BC a lot so paying extra for phone service to / from Canada. It is worth it and great coverage, there, too. Usually, on Telus network but occasionaly Bell.

T-Mobile

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Broad St. | Western Ave., Seattle, WA 98121 |

I switched from AT&T because T-Mobile and after a month I'm thinking of switching back. The coverage is pathetic. Often the phone will barely get EDGE and won't get 3G. Even when it does get 3G there seems to be about 30 seconds of negotiation before HSDPA kicks in and that usually lasts for a few seconds before it starts drops to 3G and drops the connection. Speech is just as bad. I can barely get 1-2 bars of reception in most places and I've had more dropped calls in the last week than in a year with AT&T. They're cheap, but not worth it.

Sprint

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Strander Blvd.& Andover Park East, Tukwila WA 9818 | Closer To Southcenter Mall... Besides Fire Deparme, Seattle, WA 98188 |

Had Sprint for more than a decade, and for the past 7 years I move to Seattle Area, and only probably 2 or 3 drop calls, Most if not all calls are clear no matter if it is local, international or worldwide. probably data is the only improvement they need to fix soon, since max speed I get here is 25 MB but many times I get higher. it might be the plan I am in or the phone which is GS5.

Verizon

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Queen Ann / Seattle Center, Seattle, WA 98119 |

I've been a Verizon customer for over a decade (T-Mobile before that) and I've never had any coverage issues with Verizon. I've maybe had 5 dropped calls in the 10 years I've been with them, but I can't even say for certain if I've had even 1. With the launch of their AWS spectrum, I'm now pulling upwards of 70Mb / s download speed. This is even faster than my wi-fi connection at work. And I work for a prominent technology company in Lower Queen Ann. A little pricey, yes; but I'd rather pay a little more for great coverage / data speeds than constantly worry about "dead zones."

Constant dropped calls and missed calls, even on 4G (when I can get it). Horrible. Have never had problems with Verizon before I got to Seattle. Very disappointed.

T-Mobile

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Seattle - Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA 98102 |

I switched from AT&T to T-Mobile because it was about $10 cheaper a month and provided free unlimited international texting and data and I was traveling abroad a lot. 1. International data is edge speed. Still better than nothing though and google maps saved me so many times so fine. Slow but free, I'll take it. 2. Domestic coverage around Seattle is THE WORST. I find myself staring at an "E" on the top left of my iphone. EDGE?? not even with my first iphone in 2008 did I see edge network unless I was traveling through bumpkin land. I walk to work, north along Melrose in Capitol Hill right by the 5 freeway and I can't get anything. Seriously, I am in the middle of Seattle, wide open, and no reception. My spotify stops playing, I can't check instagram, it is the WORST. (not really, but it's funny to be dramatic about 1st world problems). 3. I am constantly getting 2 and 3 bars which I almost never saw with AT&T which provided almost always 5 bars, sometimes 4. I'm sorry, I thought T-Mobile was HQed in the greater Seattle area in Factoria. 2 or 3 bars? Is this 2001? WTF mate. 4. So I am saving $10 a month, and I probably saved about $60 in international data roaming charges, but I am constantly dealing with data deadzones and a 300% increase in dropped calls. Worth it?? 5. When the iphone 6 drops, I am headed back to AT&T.
