Very little reception in downtown Norfolk by the Waterside, a heavily urbanized area with hotels, office buildings, and McArthur Center mall within walking distance. Would lose reception to the point of having to restart once in a different location.

Sprint has been an awful carrier for us. Thank god we finally switched to another carrier. For over a decade we stuck it out because they were the only provider with true unlimited data. The problem was, we rarely actually GOT that data because the signal was so poor. Even when LTE came to the area the data was poor and often didn't have a strong enough connection for LTE anyway. Phone calls often never got through, going straight to voicemail because the phones had no signal or the signal was too weak and even texts were sometimes delayed, by up to hours, before being received. We switched to another carrier (T-Mobile) once unlimited data was an option and we are so very glad we did. The difference is, literally, night and day. T-Mobile's signal is much better, no dropped or missed calls and no delayed texts. We always have 4G now and data is reliable and stable. We actually kept our land line for years because Sprint was so unreliable. Now that we're on T-Mobile we may very well finally 'cut the cord' on our land line.

Recently switched to T-Mo from Sprint. Sprint's coverage was absolutely awful. At work, in Nofolk, I often had no signal and at Home I was lucky to hold a signal reliably as well. I was even sometimes not getting calls at all, the phone would never ring and the caller would go straight to voicemail every now and then. I even had texts just never show up or show up hours after they'd been sent to me. It was awful. Finally we got sick of it and switched to T-Mobile. The difference is like night and day. On T-Mo I have full 3-4 bars 4G LTE at work and at home I've got 5 bars. Out and about my signal never drops and I have yet to miss a call or texts and have yet to have any texts show up delayed. Just an over-all much better experience. So glad we switched. No more missed calls, no more dropped data connections, much faster LTE and just more peace of mind. Never going back to Sprint and I was a Sprint customer for more than a Decade.

Sprint is better than AT&T in Norfolk. Speeds aren't any better but I can get a signal in many areas AT&T was not able to penetrate into.

I attempted to switch from Verizon to T-Mobile due to their international rates. I am military and T-Mobile offers great rates in Qatar. I was told that my Galaxy S6 would work by a T-Mobile Rep, and ordered SIMs under the Bring your Own Device plan. I was informed that I could receive a full refund within 30 days by the rep on the phone if I changed my mind. I received the SIM cards, and learned that my Verizon variant S6 wouldn't support data services on the T-Mobile network; from what I gather my location relied on a Band that they didn't provide? Regardless, I closed the account and asked for a refund on the SIM cards. I was initially told by a customer service rep that they would not refund the SIM cards. After reviewing the information I received when I initially began the process of switching and noting that it did say I had 30 days to get a full refund, I called back and was informed that I would receive a refund for the SIM cards (that was after being bounced around several times to different reps and eventually their orders department. I was informed not to worry about returning the SIM cards, because it wasn't economical for T-Mobile to reuse them. I was told that I would receive a refund for the SIM card purchase. This has never happened. I have interacted with them over the phone and on chat numerous times, and been given the run around every time. I am disputing the charges with my credit card company based on the chat logs I have promising a refund, and I am also posting to this and other forums in the hopes that prospective customers will see it and stay away from Tmobile. My goal is to cost them at least as much in revenue from a potential customer as they have effectively stolen from me. So, if you're reading this, please take my advice and stay away from Tmobile. They ripped me off, and they might do it to you as well.

I do not have high speed data and I am still able to use the hotspot on my phone to stream movies! That's incredible! I however don't understand why I have ZERO service on base.

Been with Sprint for about 5 yrs now, and the last yr has been HORRIBLE. I am shopping around now trying to switch carriers. I don't receive phone calls at all. People will call me asking why I haven't called them and I have no notifications that anyone called. This has been an ongoing issue now for months.
