I moved from Newark to smyrna.I have been with T Mobile for 7 years.Last 2 weeks had no service and yet I pay my bills on time.I drop my calls every now and then.When I was driving and I was at dover had reception called customer care they lied to me that they are working on better reception in smyrna which broke. That was a lie don't go to T Mobile service as they are the the worst.I am moving to another carrier

Excellent reception in dover, to include everywhere on base (my bldg is bad for reception with AT&T and Verizon)! Terrible reception anywhere else except Wilmington. We had 4G up until yesterday, we started to receive LTE, but T-Mobile sent me an automated text stating that service will be in and out for the next 3 weeks for reception (Lte) upgrades. If you want a cheaper bill and your looking to get out of your contract and your mostly in the dover area. Or bigger cities, then I'd get tmobile. If you spend a lot of time in the sticks, then stay away from tmobile.

No service with T mobile inside house, outside 1-2 bars, can make calls but incoming calls disconnect. Cannot send or receive text messages consistently. Dumping T Mobile and going back to Verizon. Should have known when T-Mobile sales person ask where we lived and we said Felton, she said "Oh".

Had to switch from Verizon. Verizon is awful in Delaware. MIssed and dropped calls. Sprint works fine around the AFB and most of Dover. Sure, out in really rural areas I might have 1-2 bars, but it does work. I usually have solid 4-5 bars in any town in Delaware. Much better than Verizon (who everyone has, and everyone complains about around here).

I get service at home. Sometimes at stores. But not really. Service is awful. Can't talk on the phone in most of delaware because I have no service.

I live around Hartley. Service has sucked since August. Spotty at best. Can Sprint please fix this problem. We pay just like everyone else does, yet no service. I don't want to have to move to another carrier to get cell service and internet service. This is beyond aggravating.

My reception SUCKS! Ever since I moved to DE I lose calls. I wish Sprint would come and put up more towers cause I loved the service in VA and would like to have the same here in DE.

No reception for the last two months. Aggravating since I've always had a great signal in my house. When I called 2 months ago they told me towers were were being maintenanced and problem would be fixed within a week. Nothing. Then last week they promised within 24 hrs. Today they said its fixed and oh well that I dont get a signal in my house.

My experience with Verizon has been really good. I get 4 and 5 Bars most of the time which is 4G LTE and really super fast. My internet on my phone is faster than my internet at home. I do have problems with areas like smyrna delaware though. But it's only when I'm in a building, when I'm outside I have no problems at all. I hope this review helped, have a great day.

I get no reception in my house or place of work. If I'm outside it jumps up to 1 to 3 bars of 4G but Internet is very slow. It's probably the phones they sell to. All my co-workers have iPhones and they work perfect. T- Mobil needs to get with the times and give there customers the iPhones. I'm dumping them when my two year intact is up.

Sprint Service is great. I have previously had T-Mobile... WHICH WAS HORRIBLE. I also had Verizon for 2 years before I switched to Sprint to save money. Cell Reception has been fantasic, and Im saving about $50 a month for both lines compared to Verizon. Glad I switched!

Been a Sprint customer for 2 yrs with good coverage. Just Upgraded from droid to iPhone. Got home to only see 1 bar. Sprint claimed tower had been hit by major storm. Told me would be fixed in 2 days then pushed to following week. Had 10 days without coverage. Sent me airwave device to amp signal in house. Still only get 1 bar in hometown and driveway. 5 days into this saga I asked Sprint rep how do I cancel contract. They Told me I have to pay $350 early term fee. Later found sprints policy on web indicating 14 day window which I'm now passed. Plan on filing complaint with FCC to inform them of deception. Do not choose Sprint if you want an iPhone!

It really doesn't seem to be the carrier, it's all about the phone. I have both a Blackberry and a Samsung Captivate and the Blackberry get excellent reception. My Samsung on the other hand struggles to get anything close to decent reception.

My house is about 800 feet from HWY 1, and I cant make a call or receive a call without it being dropped every time, especially in my house. My house is in Base housing on Dover AFB. Dover AFB consist of two sides on the left side is the actual base on which my phone works great, on the base housing side my phone is a lost cause. When I asked Verizon what the deal is, they came up with the lamest excuse " Sir, the base's security inhibits cell phone signal strength. " Me: Thats funny cause when I stand right by the Communications Squadron who if they where doing such a thing, my signal is great, but if I'm in my home I cant even make a call." Verizon: " Well, its more complex than that" Me: Please fix this problem and stop making up stuff that is not true."
