Sprint reception near Clearwater very poor. Dp not buy Sprint if you live in this area. I'm switching to Verizon which has strong signal here.Was this review helpful to you?
I get good coverage with T-Mobile all over the Wichita area. I have never had any problems with my Samsung phone. I don't even remember the last time I had a dropped call with it. T-Mobile really provides excellent service. Like any carrier, though, you do have to have the right phone. I had 2 Motorola phones that I had to return during the buyer's remorse period because of dropped calls. I have found Samsung and Nokia work the best.Was this review helpful to you?
Although the reception is quite good in most of Wichita, my phone goes into digital roaming much of the time. Lately, when people call me, the phone doesn't even ring. I moved to Wichita about 6 months ago, and the problems just keep getting worse. Ever since Sprint merged with Nextel things have been going down hill. I just ordered a phone through Cingular and will give it a try. After reading reviews on here, I am fairly convinced it could be even worse than Sprint, and I will be sending the phone back within the 30-day trial. Perhaps the best solution is to move back to Minnesota or Iowa...Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint service has pleased me, I've been with them for 3 years now. In certain types of construction, (ie. steel buildings, concrete buildings) the receptions gets kind of iffy, also in my basement. But... There really isn't much roaming even in little towns hundreds of miles away. You still get Sprint service, and you're never out of your "service area" which means you won't be charged for using someone else's towers / network, ect. For example, I moved to Indianapolis and my phone never worked better without having to change my plan or coverage region. Only downside to Sprint is while in store, you really can't get questions answered regarding phone problems, but I have only had one problem since being with Sprint, they are doing something right...Was this review helpful to you?
I have been with Alltel for 7 years and have had enough. I'm leaving to try Sprint. The signal when I'm at home is "low" with Alltel and this results in dropped calls It is impossible to drive on the highway and have a conversation for more than 30 minutes as the call will drop when you go from one tower to the next or from one county to another. I cannot drive from wichita to newton and have a conversation with Alltel service. I cannot drive from wichita to hutchinson and have uninterrupted phone call. My phone began dropping calls on a daily basis a month ago. It quit working completely about 10 days ago but I cannot leave Alltel until my contract ends. I need my number with my new service but Alltel tells me they will charge me an early leaving fee of $200 X 3 if I change my number. I offered to simply continue paying my Alltel service and transfer my number to Sprint but Alltel says it cannot do that. I use the phone for business and can only call my voice mail every couple of hours to check messages. It is impossible for anyone to contact me directly even though I'm paying for Alltel phone service.Was this review helpful to you?
I have always had the best luck with Alltel. We have had our phones with Alltel since 1992 and they have only continued to improve whether that being customer service, phones, or towers. We went with Alltel because it was the only option for our location when we lived in Kingman. I moved to Wichita last August and have had phenominal coverage. Only have two calls dropped my entire time here. The only spot that I always really have trouble with is driving on Kellogg as soon as I get into Goddard at the main intersection. If I'm on a call there it is always certain to drop while switching between towers. Overall I find Alltel to be a Great Company and recommend it for anyone.Was this review helpful to you?
Alltel is my provider and to me there service is good to excellent.you can go to just about anyware in the state without roming.And my last phone a v710 did excellent its year of service.And like the fact they replaced it with the e815 the only drawback with the e815 is on axcess apps.the weather apps are not there.But could be add ed soon I got the the RAZR its cool... . And mycast 5. weather is the best! If you use your phone to watch the weather.!Was this review helpful to you?
There is a tower near this intersection with strong T-Mobile signal. T-Mobile's 850MHz capable phones can access (without roaming) any Cingular tower, but only if your phone is setup correctly (default settings usually make your phone ignore those towers).Was this review helpful to you?
Alltel: When we commute over to wichita our signal is good to excellent. There's a few dead spots from tower to tower but in time they'ill be filled. Before Alltel came to wichita we roam- ed on Verizon's system and the signal was good to excellent.we have 2 v710's and they work ok but id like to upgrade to the e815 or razrv3c. Because of the newer software. End:. Have a safe an happy Memorial Day!...Was this review helpful to you?
I have to give my reception a 5 simply because no matter how many bars I have, I still have crystal clear reception with very little break up. I love Verizion. I can travel any where in the US and have no issues at all.Was this review helpful to you?
