Typically get 0 to 1 bar for reception in the house. We get no service when in our basement (we have a finished basement and don't even bring our cell phones down there as they wont work). We drop calls everyday day and it is so frustrating. Don't go with Sprint if you live near the same crossroads as we do!

The last time we complained they said "We cannot help your signal you are in an area with 5 towers servicing you." We can not recieve a call in our house, if by chance it does ring you have to run to the end of the driveway to talk!

I have 3 bars in my house and drop calls all the time. Sprint charges an extra 10 dollars for smartphones supposedly for 4g service which we don't have here. When at my mom's in milwaukee 3g is horrible, frustrating. I'm looking to change. I had AT&T before Sprint and it was about the same except cheaper.

All my calls go to voicemail and I get notified later. This happens in many other locations. Stay away from Virgin Mobile.

I've had Verizon for over 4 years. I can't recall one incident, where I had any issues making or receiving phone calls in the West Allis area. Data speeds aren't the greatest around here. I just got the Droid 4 with 4g, and if I put the phone in the window upstairs, I average 500-700k / s. Sitting in Whitnall Park, I got the best speed at over 3 mb / s, averaging consistantly over 1.5mb / s.

reception would be 1 bar and always drop calls. In my office building I had a 50 / 50 chance of receiving calls. Texts would often take 15-20 minutes to send and receive. I was in my office, used my land line to call my cell while my cell phone was laying on my desk. The call went to voice mail and I received notication on my cell 10 minutes later that I had a voice message. I rep at the Sprint store said that Oak Creek (53154) has poor reception, but they are working on it. I returned the phones 72 hours after receiving them because the reception issues were so bad. Icing on the cake was the the iphone4 I received had the death grip problem to boot.

I've got no love for Verizon, and actually I'm shopping other carriers because of price. However, in the six years I've lived here in SE Wisconsin I don't remember ever experiencing bad reception. Dropped call, what's that? My phone get used everywhere and even when I'm driving and NO dropped calls. How can one person have perfect reception in West Allis and another is crying their eyes out? Strange.
