Horrible reception better off with Skype or Google voice over Internet. If you like having 1-2 bars max, dropped calls, sounding like you are in a tunnel, and static that reminds me of analogue phone calls use AT&T. Change your service ASAP!

Dropped calls and calls breaking up for a month now. Sprint first said the tower in the area would be fixed by December 3rd now they are saying it will be done by December 10th. This really sucks.

In the house I get one bar outside two bars... very poor reception and a lot of dropped calls. Very frustrating for the amount of money Verizon charges... But it appears that my area gets poor reception from all the providers, sad.

In the house, I get decent service, except when there is a major event nearby. During Arts Beats and Eats festival, I had no service for hours at a time during the four day event. Tonight I am at 12 Mile Rd in Royal Oak and have zero bars, keeps dropping calls.

I am fed up with Sprint! I am traveling to my friend's ranch in Montana and was told by my carrier, Sprint there are no towers out there and would have no reception. This is outrageous! I told them in July traveling back from Montana I had no reception for 4 Days! What is the sense of paying a monthly cell phone bill and you can't even utilize the cell phone! I am fed up with Sprint. Yes, the person was right that said "Sprint Sucks" - it does. Do NOT switch to SPRINT - you will be very sorry.

When people hear me on the phone it sound like I'm underwater or that I'm some sort of fish. I'm lucky when I can get any sort of reception at all.

Reception has always been spotty, now it's non-existant. My wife's phone has never had service here at home. We're looking for a different carrier

Fine reception in terms of bars, but the calls drop constantly and fade. Fine for texting, and terrible for talking! Very frustrating. Verizon worked fine at this location.

If you're from Detroit's west side, specifically the Warrendale area, and you're considering T-Mobile, please don't. The cell service is absolutely awful and virtually nonexistent. I frequently visit my parents who live in Warrendale, and when I visit, T-Mobile has absolutely no service in the western neighborhoods. I find this completely ridiculous and unacceptable. You mean to tell me that a major cell service provider does not have any service in a major metropolitan area?! I've called and complained and T-Mobile never helped at all, forwarding me to call centers over seas where I can barely understand the foreign call center representatives. I understand that it's not the representative's fault, and all they can tell me to do is turn off my phone, take the sim card out, and restart it. I do so and I still get no service. Furthermore, after enough complaining, T-Mobile said they'd send out a technician to install some type of cell phone booster that would be plugged into the wall of my parents house. The date came and went and no technician ever showed up, and T-Mobile didn't even call me to inform me that they wouldn't. I have a second phone, a Metro PCS, and that cheap service provider gets much, much better service than T-Mobile. To conclude, T-Mobile's cell service and customer service is completely unacceptable and absolutely pathetic. I tell everyone to never, ever consider T-Mobile if you live in the metro Detroit area, because besides downtown, you will not get consistent, strong service anywhere; and in the west side Detroit neighborhoods you will get no service at all. Consider any other service provider besides T-Mobile.

No service at all today, although my phone shows 2-3 bars. Phone keeps dialing, then finally says "Network busy". Can't find any info online about an outage.

I have had Sprint service for over 10 years. They were the best BEFORE they merged with Nextel. Since the merger the service has been up and down. I have had a lot of different phones and it depends on the phone and the area you live in that determines your reception. All the companies know this and they should recommend phones that works best in your area.

4G Coverage at my house is pretty good with me getting 3-4 bars all the way from my basement to my attic. I have occasionally dropped calls with an older 3G Android phone though. Being a WSU student 4G coverage on campus is much better than 3G for some reason. I get better coverage in fringe areas(basements). In some buildings I get 5 full bars even in the center of campus. I'm beginning to think WSU has repeaters on campus to improve cell coverage.

The service is very spotty. Messages barely send. iMessage never works. Anything using the data service is very slow. Most of the time they just don't upload. I'm always getting the "connection failed" message. I wait until I get home just to turn wifi on my iPhone. I only actually use my phone at home. I have never gotten a dropped call, but the calling service is very fuzzy. I regret switching to Sprint. There is no point in unlimited data if you can't even use it.
