5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Rice Village, Downtown, Houston, TX 77005 |

Used to have T-Mobile but got tired quickly of poor coverage. Wife had little to no coverage in the Medical Center. Since switching to Verizon, coverage is vastly improved. Trade-off, of course, is the much higher monthly bill...

Overall very bad reception. Sometime zero bars. No reception, when you do get reception it is very poor - you have to be outdoors in a certain spot with out moving. I no longer have contracts with them, so I might look for something better if this doesn't clear up soon.

Dead or weak zones all over town. Had better phone quality when I used two soup cans and piece of sting. Will definitely be switching when I can.

When I'm at the office, I am able to send / receive text messages but when it comes to data, NOTHING works. I've called Sprint 4-5 times in the last month regarding this issue and their resolution is either - dial the ## number to refresh network settings update PRL and profile reset the network settings reset the phone to factory settings or lastly, go to the Sprint connectivity store (nearest one from the galleria area is about 5 miles out and nearest one from home is about 10 miles out). Customer service is not supportive at all and redundant with their technical solutions, like a broken record. I get NO signal at home, I have the Airave device which is A JOKE. I get dropped calls AND failed text messages when I'm at home. Spoke to customer service rep the other day while they were working on our 2nd phone, and the rep says, "Sir, you are completely breaking up and I can not hear you". My response, "I am at my house, and this is your service and instead of providing me with a solution to fix this problem, you are addressing the problem that I already know". Oh and I pay around $185 / month (insurance, fees, and taxes) for 2 lines and bound to a two year contract with a company that is only interested in leeching money from their customers rather than providing solutions to alleviate their suffering. One word to describe Sprint - PATHETIC!

We've been with Verizon wireless for 7 yrs. No complaints about customer service or service for that matter. The price is high but I'd rather pay more and know my phone will work as It needs to.

US Cellular offers the bare minimum reception in Houston so as to not qualify for"literally zero reception." The service is mostly unusable and is a complete waste of money.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | 1960 and Hardy, Hobby, West Rd.& 290, IAH RAC, Houston, TX 77001 |

I have a few locations I work out of. In the 1960 and Hardy are I use to have good reception with decent 4G, then it tanked badly for about 6 months where you could barely get 3G or no data service at all, it has somewhat improved but the network is still slow. In the Hobby area I have no issues but once again the network is still slow. In the 290 and West Rd area I have lousy reception, 3G at best, but very slow. My company uses AT&T and works well in these areas. IAH RAC area I get crappy reception from from my Sprint Phone and my AT&T company, but with being hidden in trees near the airport, no surprise reception sucks. When my company had Verizon they never had any coverage issues just occasional outages, but that was 3yrs ago.

Reception is terrible, cannot have a conversation longer than 1 minute. Internet is non-existent, despite "4G" sign on my screen. Had Verizon before, had absolutely no problems at exact same location.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Methodist Hospital | 6565 Fannin, Houston, TX 77030 |

Had to change from AT&T to Verizon. No reception EVER from AT&T while at the med center. While trying to call from the waiting room, someone said, "You must have AT&T" - which I did. In the elevator, people were on their cells so I asked about their carrier. It was Verizon. I switched and never had a problem - anywhere. Expensive, but worth it - esp during an emergency. Also get reception inside my house. I never could with AT&T.

I receive absolutely no reception if I do the call is constantly breaking up. I have friends who say they call and receive a busy signal or goes straight to voicemail. This is so frustrating and annoying!

about 10 months ago I had service at my job and at home. All of a sudden they said they were maintenacing the towers. They never let us know in advance and I get no signal at all now. I had to call to find out and they are still changing me the same price for service that I am not getting. Tired of the unprofessionalism of Sprint. I have been a loyal customer for over 7 years. I'm done!

I am absolutely tired of this sub-par service that I pay a premium for! No data coverage in The Galleria, or hardly any on my way to The Woodlands!? Ridiculous! 12 years of loyalty and I get ZERO help from Sprint!

Most times, I am not able to access app store or magazines from the newsstand. The delay of response to a click on a hyperlink is also awful.

4gLTE hotspot download speeds of.14kbps - yes, that's point 14 kilobytes per second. Should be at least 3 megabytes. Been like this for few months. Hours on phone with AT&T. Bought new hotspot. No improvement. Moving to Verizon. Dropping all AT&T services.

I work in the 16th floor of greenway plaza and the signal gets constatntly dropped off. Most of the calls go to my voicemail even though I have switched on my phone. Very poor. Kind of gets better when I get down to the ground floor.

inconsistent and weak signal. frequent calls dropping. never got 3G / 4G and LTE. This is unacceptable. I am planning to go to T-Mobile and switch to Verizon. Too bad that Virgin does not support the iPhone 5!
