The signal at home is ok as far as calls are concerned. However, there is no 4g and most times, there is no 3g. If I travel over 3 miles away from home I lose all of my services. No calls, no 3g and no 4g. What am I paying for!!!! Now, I see that the rest of the carriers are no different. We, as customers, need to revolt! Why are we being charged so much taxes for something that doesn't work? All the fanfare commercials for something that doesn't work!

In my house, Never get more than 1 or 2 bars, lose or drop calls, I have to go outside to finish a conversation sometimes. I am definitely looking for a better carrier, unfortunately, the choices are few. Verizon, at&t, t mobile, the rest aren't even worth mentioning as the coverage only gets worse. I could understand it if I lived in a more rural area, but I live in NE Phila, I know that there are thousands of people Like me. The carriers bribe congressman to pass laws favorable to them, why can't we, who elect the congressman, through democratic means, let them know how displeased we are. The carriers' service is neither cheap nor reliable, yet we keep paying for it with our collective mouths shut! We complain about in person or on social media, yet nothing has ever changed. I understand that there are more important issues that divide us, such as socio-economic, gender, race which may be more pressing. But on this, we can all agree, unanimously, that cellphone carriers brag about their superior service, charge us outrage fees for said service, while not delivering and not being held to account for their shortcomings. After all, we need our phones to be able to communicate with one another. So I pose this question to all; haven't you ever been on an important call, whether it was business or personal, and in the middle of it, the line either went silent, or dropped completely? And you were both stationary?

I had Sprint and went to have my wireless device programmed to a Prepaid Wireless service called Selectel Wireless, because Sprint service was a grave signal maybe now Sprint will fix those towers for the love of god, please! I found a guy at flashingeasy.com in frankford ave and now my service is on Verizon Prepaid running well.. anyone in need of cell phone issue with the bill better contact this guy and you will be happy.

One min. Reception then ten feet away no reception. If in a spot with reception and don't move fifteen min. Then call drops. Net is very slow and at time fair. It just rediculous. I stuck with Sprint through the good times as well as the bad... .its been about ten years. But now its too much. Too much B.S. and too much money. I think I'm through.

Sprint sucks! I've been with Sprint for the past year and a half and I've been miserable with this terrible reception I get in my apartment. My calls are always dropping and I can NEVER access the internet. It's so frustrating that I'm paying for a service that's not even working. I can't wait until my contract is done because I'm definitely switching to a different company. Sprint, shame on you.

T-mobile is the worst they are so bad I don't even know how they still exist. I'm an OTR truck driver so I need my phone to keep in touch with family. The service is so horrible it almost cost me my marriage.

Sprint is selling LTE phone to customers in Philly and they don't have LTE service here for another year or more. Tried to tell me the phone will work on 3G and please still pay for premium data. Adios Sprint.. Contract is up and I'm going with AT&T

Since moving here, never see more than 2 bars on signal strength indicator, inside or outside. Varies markedly throughout property. Can lose call just by shifting body position! Other Verizon users in same neighborhod have same complaint regardless of phone type. Verizon acknowledges that they know it's an area with poor signal quality. Only corrective action suggested was offer to SELL me a residential signal booster at $100 (puportedly half-off regular price). Did NOT offer discounted rate for inferior service. Outrageous.

Service stinks ! 7yrs ago I had T-Mobile and left. I pick up Tmo 7 yrs later and customer service is still giving the same answer. “ We at Tmo are aware of the prob are Tech team is working on issue but their is no time frame yet until the prob is fixed ” they don't care about their customers.

Throughout this area, my reception is poor, often reverting to 1x coverage for data. Dropped calls or dropped sound during a call is common. I'm quite disappointed in the coverage in our area.

I get zero reception inside my house. This is a known problem with TMobile. When I called customer service they said they are aware of the problem but have no time estimate on when it will be corrected. In the mean time I can stand outside to make my calls. What! I moved here from Glenside (less than three miles away) were reception was fine. I believe TMobile purposely reduces the signal in some areas in order to market their pay by the month cell phone booster. It is not in their best interest to fix the signal if they can generate additional revenue by offering the 'booster' package. Why should I have to pay more for what I should already have.
