Had to be given a signal booster to be able to use phones at home. As I walk down my driveway while on phone call started inside drops call 100% of the time. Frequent roaming notification from phone when internet has issues.

Sprint used to be the best phone carrier that I had ever had up until about 8 months ago when the service got so bad that I have not been able to finish one entire call with out dropping the call and have to call 3 and 4 times. everyone in my area, Joliet, Shorewood and Plainfield, Il. Are experiencing the same problem.

Two empty Campbell's soup cans and a piece of string would offer 100% better communication. I'm surprised Sprint hasn't been sued yet! I never had any problems with Nextel here in Illinois or at work in Indiana for 20 years. I plan on switching to Verizon ASAP!

There is no way to protect Sprint. No way to defend them. The coverage map is a lie. The cell service has dropped in a major way. Its no longer reliable. I can stand in one area and watch my phone dance all over with the service. It fights to stay off of roaming but finally does and I get better coverage. Sprint uses U.S. Cellular from what I understand so I believe I will change over to them. Sprint will tell you they are upgrading the towers. Ive dealt with text issues last fall. Now its cell signal. But its not just in the southlands. Its all around Chicagoland. From the north burbs to the west and south. Signal has become spotty and erratic. Ive been a customer of Nextel / Sprint since 2002. By the time the fall comes around. I doubt I will continue to be apart of their family. But before others leave. I suggest what I plan to do(not sure if some still do it). I hope to be able to test a phone for a day or two to be sure I am getting one that will work for me not only where I live but where I travel. As some of us has learned. Just because our house is WITHIN the coverage map showing we will have good service,doesnt mean we will.

For starters, I JUST signed my contract a week and half ago. Got my phone and noticed I had little to NO service in West Kankakee area, where I live and would use the phone the most. The farther north I went into Bradley, Bourbonnais, 4G kept going on and off and bars would go from 3 to none constantly. Asked Sprint Customer Support about it and they all said they have issues with connection and data speeds (4G was DEFINITELY not 4G, not even DSL speeds). They came out and said all in all they have issues in this location (the Sprint store on 45 / 52 near Dunkin Donuts in Bourbonnais) Would not recommend Sprint to anyone... .

I have been with Verizon since 2006 and have had no issues what-so-ever with them. My reception is pretty good majority of the time. Even in my basement I get great service on my phone. Have never had any dropped calls that I can recall in the past 6 years. I was thinking about switching to Sprint but seen they have the WORST service ever. I got a contract with them and lets just say I sent the phone back and cancelled my contract (before my 14 days were up) within 4 days. I am staying with Verizon, even though they have the $30 data plan. It will be much better in the long-run.

I even have a Sprint airwave and it still SUCKS! I hope they go bankrupt. Ive had Sprint for 15yrs and cant remember it being this BAD. I hope Verizon is better in my area.

I've been getting the same story about towers being upgraded. No heads up about the change in reception. I've had about enough with Sprint. My contract is up in October and even that seems too long from now to keep putting up with them. As soon as the contract is over I will not be renewing! Customer service has been horrible along with quality of my "smart phones" and reception! not a happy customer at all! Would definitely NOT recommend Sprint to ANYONE!

No notice to customers cell towers are down and not expected to be restored until the end of June... .gave us a choice of only a $50.00 credit or waiver of cancellation fee's. This is fine but what about the phones be purchased through them and now have to start over? What kind of win strategy is this? I was under the impression all companies need clientele to make their business succeed?
