I've been with Sprint for over 15 years dealing with poor phone service, dropped calls and lies from customer service. Sprint is a company that literally cares nothing about customers who have been loyal to them. My contract is up and I was in a Metro PCS store yesterday. Needless to say, I'm filing my divorce papers from Sprint, today! I'm done!

We use an I phone for work. If I need to send e-mail, there is NO sense in trying in my area. This has been a problem since 1994 : dropped calls, terrible reception, cannot connect with web, etc. Complained several times... .always paid 3 months ahead... they terminated me, with an +$18 balance, then sent me a bill for the last 2 months of the contract. Coverage died just north of Columbus Convention Center so I had to either go downtown, or up to 4th Ave and High St. to use my phone (that was a Motorola). In my opinion, the FCC should investigate a behavior pattern that may be borderline criminal.

I've had T-Mobile for about 6 months now. I get perfect LTE coverage and full bars everywhere I go. There are some minor reception problems if I'm in a giant building but the service normally pulls through. I have never had a dropped call, opposed to Verizon who's network is overly congested!

I've had Sprint for three years and all 3 years i've had horrible reception. The reception is actually getting worse it seems as time passes by. I've lived in three different locations in that time span and ALL locations had poor to no reception. I travel for a living and I constantly get dropped calls EVEN while driving in major cities across the U.S. I have the Air Wave device that Sprint offers that is supposed to boost your reception in your home. Well it does nothing for me and seems to be a complete waste of time. All I seem to ever hear from Sprint is that they are having issues with the towers in my area. It seems that these "tower issues" have existed since I became a Sprint customer three years ago. If you enjoy having no reception 50% of the time, choppy reception most of the time where the person on the other end sounds like a robot losing charge, slow data to no data then Sprint is the cell company for you. And when you are finally fed up with the Sprint service and are ready to make the switch, you call to speak to someone in the cancelation department only to be placed on hold for 45 minutes to an hour. I guess they are hoping that having you wait for an hour or so on hold may cause you to hang up and remain a unhappy Sprint customer for another month of bad service. At this point I would recommend Sprint about as much as I would recommend having a Root Canal without anesthesia.

Its horrible here. I get maybe one bar, dropped calls,3g to 1x data. If I go 1 mile west, to the middle of the farmland I get lte. What the heck, Sprint? Wouldn't you want to put that kind of reception / service where people actually live?

I seem to get OK voice service, some calls dropped here and there, but data should really be free in the Columbus area. I consistently have terrible connectivity to anything data related. Don't plan on sending picture messages to anyone or watching SHORT clips off of YouTube; Sprint takes forever to load even simple GIF files (read: slideshow style picture presentation, no audio, typically very poor quality). I would not recommend Sprint over other carriers in the area. Sprint's plus is unlimited data, but this plus is a gimmick as you can't use their unlimited data anywhere in the city (in my experience). I would also like to indicate that I live very close to OSU; one would think there would be decent reception. As I look at my phone right now, I have 1 out of 5 bars. Thanks Sprint!

Calls drop all the time. Calls often don't connect nicely the first few times, and start out distorted with nasty echoes. Two or three tries sometimes improves things. We switched from AT&T, which turns out was vastly superior. We used iPhones on both carriers, as well as QWERTY sliders. Quality issues exist on both phone models.

In Grove city we get TONS of dropped calls, or in coming calls never get through at all. But GC is not the only problem. My daughter goes to Capital University, her service there is TERRIBLE! She can't use her phone in her dorm rom at all. Sprint offered to send me one of the AirWave things but I'd have to pay $100 for it! Also, while traveling just today, my husband was trying to communicate with his off ice, he had 5 dropped calls in 2 hours! I don't really know what to do next!

We switched from Verizon to Sprint a year and a half ago and have in essence gone from having a mobile phone service to not having one at all (we are still paying the bill though). In short, Sprint is a joke do not do business with Sprint. I travel around the country routinely and have found that Columbus is not unique in this regard, either.

Recently moved to the area and have very limited service. There are no incoming calls, webpages load at a rate so slow they normally expire before the page loads. After 4 days of experiencing multiple missed calls and non existent web service I made a decision to find a phone service I could retain my old phone number, Family Mobile seemed like a reasonable option after speaking with several other companys. So I switched, after 12 years of service with Sprint. When I got home I called Sprint from my fully functioning Family Mobile phone powered by TMobile, that didnt go as I expected. I thought I would call up and they would say that they had several reports and that they were working to get the problem fixed... . Oh my, to my suprise it went more like this... The first CSR was not much help she transfered me to another CSR who wanted to be helpful but couldnt much more than vaguely describe the 390 dollar Early Termination fee... So I asked to speak with a Manager, 48 minutes later, I spoke with someone who couldnt do much more than the first two. Finally I recieved a call from some that could clearly explain why I was being charged for leaving a company that expected payment for services they couldnt provide. I was assured that if I brought my phone service back to Sprint that the 390 dollar fee would be waived. I was also assured that a test would be done to check the service in the area.. I said great, send him to my house and I would show him my phone doesn't work here.. After realizing I was talking with a company that didnt care about me or my service issues I think I will just stick with 2 phone lines through Family Mobile powered by TMobile and the 119 dollar a month savings. Sprint, the 390 dollar fee will be the best money Ive ever spent with you... good bye and good riddance.

Just going through a second round of a total change in reception from my Sprint service. Very annoying. No incoming ring, sporadic service, 50% dropped calls. Customer service was very nice and told me what was wrong but had to refer me to another department to give me credit. Then I looked at all the bad reviews for ALL the carriers and decided to look at the tower locations. WOW. Hardly any towers around a the downtown area of a major American city, the capital of the state, dense with government employees and working people and surrounded by affluent neighborhoods like Bexley, German Village, Grandview. WHat's up with that? There are huge events and concerts almost every weekend and not one carrier has enough towers to carry the capacity.Aren't we paying enough? They seem to be more concerned with market share and advetising cool products than providing a good service.

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Hoover Rd. | Quail Creek Blvd., Grove City, OH 43123 |

The worst service ever. People say they call me and my phone never rings. Text messages not sending, not receiving, emergency calls only. 2 refurbished phones and a brand-new never used different model phone later still the same problem. AT&T is the worst. I have been with them for years and relocated. The coverage in Columbus is awful. Their customer service is the worst. They recommend upgrading and another 2-year agreement. Mind you I have Samsung Galaxy III - upgrade to what? I don't have a darn flip phone.

I have been using AT n T for almost an year now. I am amazed that the reception is so poor. Even inside my apartment, the signal reception is mostly non-existent. Being an communication engineer I would rate the quality of the service at below satisfaction.
