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.

I've been a Sprint customer for ten years and every month for the past year I've called and begged for a credit. Get your shit together. You suck.

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

I've been with Sprint since 2000 and never had problems with my cell service, either in Philly, or after I moved to NJ. Of course every single plan has a dropped call here or ther but you've gotta take into consideration that foresty areas, high rise areas or remote areas aren't going to have a 100% perfect signal since they do have interference with the cell towers. However, I've been in center city Philly, live in an area now where there are tons of trees but the occassional dropped call doesn't deter me from Sprint. They have great service, good customer service, everything you're paying for you're well aware of UP FRONT and when they say UNLIMITED data for smart phone plans, they mean it. I've never received a bill for overages on data with Sprint and I'm using my phone's internet 24 / 7. With all the nightmares I hear from friends of data overages and the costs associated with higher data allowance plans I WILL NEVER SWITCH CARRIERS. Thank you Sprint, you're dependable and reliable and am extremely happy with the plans you offer your customers. :)

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.

I had T-Mobile for a year and they always dropped my calls. I had no reception in my house and the bars were always low. I don't like T-Mobile anymore due to lack of service.

I was with Cingular. Sure I had 3600 rollover minutes, my phone didn't work in my house. Every call had to be done standing on my outside steps. Switched to Sprint--Perfection, perfect on all floors of my house, perfect going down my cement basement steps. Works everywhere, inside and out. Contract will be up soon. I'm not paying for their $100.00 "everything" plan. Will probaly switch to Virgin Mobile. They use Spirit services and that "everything" plan is under Fifty bucks. Go figure.

I used to get three bars in my house. For the past few weeks I get no reception in my house, on the street or anywhere within a few blocks. Occasionally the phone jumps up to two bars but as soon as you try to make a call it drops down to zero and says call failed. My friend has Cingular and gets 4 bars in my concrete basement. When you call they claim that their map says you have coverage. I'm giving them another week to fix whatever the hell it is that they screwed up this month. If its not fixed by then I'm switching to Cingular.
