Terrible service. I am constantly travelling around the city and rarely get "4G" and when I do its terrible speeds. I can stand in one spot and run the full gambit from 4G to 3G to 1x to no service without moving. Full "4G" right now, just ran speed test and getting 2.91Mbps. A Tmo co-worker just got 29.91Mbps, with only 2 bars 4G. Just not worth it to save the few $ that my company discounts for sprint, today they lose another customer. Cant wait to get the Note4 on Tmobile!

Many times I get no reception at all. Phone says "No internet connection" with full bars. Crappy!

My 3 yr old phone died last night and I'm sitting here exploring whether or not to upgrade and switch carriers. I can see others experience is negative, so I'll keep my carrier. Much seems to have happened in the last 3 years because coverage on my personal phone has improved dramatically since I switched to Sprint. Hope that helps anyone landing here, you all helped me decide to keep my carrier. Its important you also check signal access and coverage and your phone's capabilities before switching. Where I live I have access to many carriers. Where I work, only 2 carriers provide coverage to the 40th fl where I work. You can find what coverage is like in your area online (this site) or via apps. Then there's the phone, the older phones with older technology dont work well on newer equipment. So though I'm staying with my carrier I am buying a relatively newer phone (NOT an iPhone) in order to continue my cellular bliss!

You guys are spoiled brats. Everything must be now, perfect, a dedicated pipeline only for your data. Earth to sheep, most of other countries have service prices set extremely high and coverage is nonexistent. Stop the whining brats, when the stuff hits the fan I want to see people appreciate your luxuries

My phone is basically useless inside buildings. I'm forced to either use my office phone or head outside to the street to make a call. I've also noticed recently the "red x" next to reception icon on my phone when trying to make calls / send texts while outside. I'm unable to use my phone for a good 30 minutes whenever this happens. My GF has Verizon and experiences none of these issues.

Costly plan and the damn phone (Internet) and calls never work. Very frustrating. Switched from Sprint to Verizon and regret it dearly...

My work uses AT&T as our wireless carrier and for years I have been unable to get usable reception at Penn Station. Honestly, I think AT&T is throttling users here unless they are on high end data plans.

The data service on Verizon is terrible. I get full bars on the phone but it's useless. It takes 20 minutes to send a simple text and iMessage. It works 10 percent of the time. The voice service is satisfactory. For those looking to switch to Verizon. I just want to say Grass is not always greener on the other side.

Work in Hells Kitchen, No signal at all, from 4G drops to 1x, and from 1x to no signal at all, then goes to 3G. Drains the battery in 2 hours. Most of my co-workers have Verizon with different phones they all are having the same problem unlike At&t, T-Mobile and Sprint they have full bars. Hopefully Verizon does something about it, when Sandy hit Rockaway Verizon was the only carrier sending antennas, I was the happiest customer, not anymore. but still dont want to change carrier.

Ipad mini and iphone 5 get 2 bars. 3 Mbts down and 3 up at 10pm. At 1pm got 0.2 down which is unusable. I'm really getting sick of verizon. Data speed is mostly unusable between noon and 5 and very slow the rest of the time. It's only fast for me from 5-7 am. Btw. There is nothing wrong with my phone. These speeds are the same for two iphone 5s and an ipad mini. I switched from AT&T when the iphone 5 came out hoping for better service. And it was for a while, buts it's been awful ever since sandy.

95% of the time I have no cell signal - calls cannot get in nor can I send or receive text unless I go downstairs to my building and literally point my phone to the sky. It's complete B.S. that I pay for this service and not to get at least 2 bars in my building. I have a Verizon phone and I lay it side-by-side on my desk and the Verizon service is always up and running. HINT!

I have been a loyal AT&T customer for the past 5 years but I can't take this anymore. I cannot get any data coverage in my office and half the time my calls go straight to voicemail. I am just waiting for Samsung's next release and then will be switching to Verizon.

Kicked the bucket with Sprint. T-Mobile works excellent here. Consistently high data speeds and no dropped calls, both indoors and out. In large buildings, sometimes signal can vary. But overall good.

I don't know what happened but my iPhone 3GS has poor reception in NY Penn Station now. The phone will say 3G is connected but all apps can't fin an internet connection 80% of the time. Edge connection is alittle better, connection happens 50% of the time. Voice / SMS happens about 50% of the time. AT&T needs to improve their reception or I am moving to another carrier.

I have been with Sprint for 5 years. Never had any issues. For the last 4 MONTHS in my apartment: I have had so MANY dropped calls in my apartment(even near windows), occasional delayed texts, occasions where voice mails just pop up without the phone ever ringing at times up to 2-3 hrs later after the missed call. Data is faster early in the morning and after 7 / 8pm. Outdoor and indoor coverage (in most large buildings) is excellent otherwise for calls / texts (sometimes roaming; but it's free). I guess i'm just in a bad spot in my neighborhood.
