AT&T THE WORSE COMPANY!: some member of my family have AT&T cell accounts and they even have to get on top of a royal palm to grasp that bar of signal, but I don't really care, is not my account. What I do care is about my internet service at home, the worst internet service that I have ever seen! If compare this company with the Claro service and orange services back in dominican republic where I lived for 6 years (that's suppose to be a third world country) the service over there is 10 times better. To put it simple, obviously I don't have the same speed as the dialup service back then, but 100% sure that is the same overall amount of energy that you waste when you try to use their service. I had call at%t multiple times (probably around 6 times in 3 months) and the only thing they do is reset my router and do some weird numerical changes in the configuration at the central system. So i'm tired of it, i'm using my cell hotspot from t-mobile(now) while I look other companies offers, I wonder if comcast have a plan that only includes the internet because we have direct tv. But in conclusion I strongly recommend new costumers to obtain information from reviewers before switching to AT&T! GOOD LUCK!

I don't understand all these negative comments about tmobile. Ive had Verizon for months and had to switch. I got tmobile, they paid my cancellation fee and I can honestly say I get full bars and fast lte everywhere I go. I think all the negative comments are only coming from aventura I guess that's the black hole. T-Mobile bought metro PCS and took all their antennas. I honestly love T-Mobile and I can't complain about anything. It's also a lot cheaper than AT&T and Verizon.: Their prices are crazy... I can even use my phone when I fly to Colombia or Spain! T-Mobile has international roaming included in their plans! For free! I love it!

I get three bars in the Falls area but the data might as well be ZERO BARS! I have drained my battery trying to connect to websites that are easy to load like classifieds sites. They claim they fixed their network but they are full of it. One day I called and asked them "Why should I pay for something I cannot use?" They tried to blame it on the phone (search the net, many people have the same response lol!) and I said "Well, if it were my phone then why is my friend who is sitting next to me and has Sprint unable to use his data either?" LOL! They put me on hold and transferred me to some guy saying repeatedly "how many I help you" and he couldn't hear me and I got hung up on! They couldn't even hear what I was saying due to their obsolete network. I gave up calling them. There is a huge black hole or weak signal in the Falls area. I pay 92 per month and still have til Jan 15 until my contract is up. Any suggestions?

I travel between Miami and Alabama throughout the year and the Sprint service is less than par. They say they are upgrading the towers and I'm still waiting. I have been a Sprint customer for over 15 years and they treat me as if I just came on board with them. Whenever my service is not working and I see someone who's service is, I ask who they are with and nine times out of ten it's Verizon. I understand they have great coverage and great speeds, that's all I need. My contract is up at the end of this year with Sprint and I will be moving to Verizon.

They were so bad, I couldn't even use them a year and had to fire them. they are after me to p\ay, but I say the breached their contract by requiring me to carry their data plan, when their data p\lan sucked and I couldn't even get service at the top of FIU football stadium. went to Net10 and love their service, unlimited, tax and all for less than $47 using AT&T or T-Mobile SIM card. so happy... .

Seems like no carrier wants to spend money to fix reception in Miami dade. They just want our money then penalize us when they cannot live up to their claims of #1you coverage. They say to buy more equipment to boost reception. Why do I need to do that? Oh yea they want more of my money but they don't fix the problem. They don't consider Miami dade big enough to invest in more / better service? Oh yea they have my money / contract. Seems they all suck.

Although I know it is not ideal I know it's getting better because there are areas in Miami where I get the 4G LTE. Just moved here from Atlanta where the LTE is great. I understand they are updating and they can't do that instantly. So nothing else to do but wait.

I had Sprint for 14 years. Then calls started dropping in my house. Thank God for a land line! I went to Verizon because it has good service in New Mexico. Sprint is very limited in the southwest and I planned to be there a lot. So I started Verizon. I had 1 or two bars but all calls dropped. They put out tickets and said I was in a "low signal area." I carried on a perfectly complete call in their store at 6400 US 1. They wanted me to pay $250 for a booster. Why sell someone a phone in an area where there is a low signal. I am paying $25 more a month than Sprint for worse service! And they want another $250? This is really unacceptable!

I get no 4G at home in Pepper Cove. The 3G was supposed to get better, still the same. It works great in the morning very early then craps out for the rest of the day and night. I just got a Galaxy S4 and decided to give them another chance, may have been a big mistake. I had a Evo3d that ran on WIMAX, seems to be the same thing, bad network! I'm calling every day complaining.

4g doesn't work at all in the hammocks. I work in Kendall and only connects for a few seconds and when I go to YouTube it disconnects. I've been with Sprint since 2005 and the service has gotten worst. They say great customer service but why would that matter if what we're actually paying for doesn't work. 4g sucks. I have a Samsung galaxy s2 3g., not for 4g. I don't even know why they print that in the back of the phone.ridiculous. I've heard the stories about the upgrading towers. What b.s. I was thinking of upgrade in June to the s4 but not anymore. I'm going to hold off for the note 3 this fallto see if service gets better but if not, I'm jumping ship. 4g just turned on while I was writing this, I turned it on 30 min ago. I'm sure it won't last. I'm sure it will disconnect as soon as I click on YouTube. AAARzrGGHH!

After being with SPRINT for 14+ years just save yourself the trouble and DO NOT SIGN UP WITH SPRINT. I have 4 lines in my account and all 4 lines get very very poor service. I am not one to complain but from 6 months down to today my service has been horrendous. I get dropped calls on a regular basis and my phone looks for service all the time. I am switching over ASAP. Even if I have to pay the early termination fees. It's not worth it and if life depended on using my phone then I don't think a life would be saved. IT IS THAT BAD. After constant calls to Sprint the tech guys trying to rule out that it could be my phone tell me that the towers near my house are working at 67% and 74% capacity. Then when I spoke to three different supervisors in the last 2 days they have the courage to tell me that they are working at 96% capacity SO OBVIOUSLY I'M THE ONE THAT IS LYING if they were to be telling the truth. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE WARNED IF YOU LIVE IN MIAMI OR POSSIBLY ANYWHERE IN THE US SPRINT IS PROBABLY NOW THE WORST SERVICE PROVIDER OUT THERE. Also don't FALL victim to them telling you that they are upgrading their towers and that's why you are experiencing sporadic service. That is a LIE. I've been waiting for those towers to get fixed for months. I spoke to a level 2 supervisor whatever that means and he told me that they hadn't started working in the Network Vision upgrades in Miami as of 3 / 26 / 13 so everyone that has been telling me that the towers are getting upgraded have been following the wrong AGENDA and WRONG DECEIVING INFORMATION. DON'T JOIN SPRINT UNLESS YOU WANT HEADACHES AND LOST MONEY. JOIN ONLY IF YOU WANT AN EXCUSE ON WHY YOU DON'T CALL PEOPLE OR ARE UNABLE TO TEXT THEM HALF THE TIME!

Verizon gets great speeds only in parts of Miami, anywhere by Tamiami Airport and Miami Dade College Kendall Campus, expect to have poor 3g coverage. at MDC signal is lost inside the buildings while ATT maintains full 4g signal.

Not just my property.. this whole area near the bay. Everyone who comes here with AT&T suddenly gets 0 to 2 bars, usually hovering at 1 bar, and either can't make calls or send texts or the calls go bad after a few minutes. AT&T claims good coverage in this area. Who are they kidding? When I drive west a few blocks on Coral Reef Dr.I always get four bars. AT&T needs to put towers closer to the bay. One of my neighbors who has AT&T solved the problem by installing a signal booster. The AC repair guy walked into my home last week and tried to make a call. I saw him struggling and asked "AT&T"? Sure enough. Driving this far east his reception had almost completely disappeared. When he left he headed west, and I'm sure he had four bars again when he got to 82nd Ave. On the other hand, the AT&T repair tech who came over here got great reception... on his T Mobile phone.
