Full 4G bars but no internet connection. Connects for about 20 seconds and drops again for hours.

If I have signal, it's only 3G. But everywhere else (burbs and further) I have amazing signal. But in the 2nd highest populated neighborhood in the 3rd most populated city in America... horrible.

Practically unusable for calls or data. Shows 4 / 4 bars, but calls are patchy and data basically doesn't work at all.

By far th worst service provider I've had thus far with very little explanation from Sprint as to why their service is so bad. I'm fed up with their service and is currently seeking another provider. What help is it for me to have a reasonable monthly fee for service that doesn't provide the very basic? I wouldn't recommend Sprint even if they try to entice you with "Low Cost Service".

Pros: Speeds are always fast and consistent for the most part in Bridgeport. Coverage is good. Cons: Very expensive, arrogant customer service.

Good reception on phone calls. Calls occasionally go to voice mail without phone ringing. Overall good experience both in Chicago and in several cities during travel using GPS and phone.

I have a Verizon jet pack and all day long it has dropped multiple times. Super annoying! You'd think in a big city like Chicago they'd have fabulous coverage. Not impressed... . never had this issue with my jet pack... .

I've been in this building for 6 years. Switched from AT&T because I couldn't get good reception. Went with T-Mobile which really wasn't any better. STUCK with T-Mob because I travel every week out of the country. Service (only use free data and text) is GREAT. I got my friends to switch to T-Mob for the overseas bennies. Now I have no friends! Service in Chicago was always awful but lately it's gotten worse. I'm on 43 floor. West facing windows only. I have spoken with so many reps from T-Mob. All polite. All understanding of my frustration. It's 0400 and I can't sleep. Google took me to this website. Now I'll go back to sleep because for the first time I understand I'm not crazy! My neighbor doesn't have issues. It's probably as one of your reviewers commented about the window location. I have been told I'm too close to the Trump Tower and it's sucking up all the signal. I swear I was told that by an AT&T rep when I wasn't getting good reception. I have the WiFi Cellspot Router from T-Mob and THAT doesn't help. You see the internet is also crap. The ONLY thing good about T-Mobile is their phone employees. They have always been kind even though I've had numerous meltdowns. The store employees are another story. You have to visit several stores to find one who cares about service after the sale. I've ranted enough. I've come to the conclusion that downtown Chicago, high-rise living it's a crap shoot.

Extremely poor reception on T-Mobile throughout Pilsen but 18th street near the Pink line station is absolutely horrible. Dropped calls and almost no data coverage. Calls go straight to voicemail. It's bad in different buildings, on the street, even up high on the train platform. It's been this way for over a year and anyone I ask who has T-Mobile and works or lives in Pilsen also has bad service. I guess TMobile doesn't care about it's customers in this area or they would be addressing the situation.
