Used to have AT&T but I had no reception what so ever as I work on the 22nd floor so I switched to Verizon as I was told they are the best, I have to say it is better than AT&T but the best download speed I get over here is about 2-3 mbps and found that we have so many dead spots in the city (Memorial Mall), so for what I pay I don't think that is acceptable.

Tmobile doesn't have the most coverage nor is the network the most powerful but all things considered, including cost it's good. Beats Sprint. And I don't see 'extras' and weird billing. Sprint had an excuse got everything. It was never their fault.

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...

Billing has been wrong for months. They never do what they say they are going to do. They doubled the insurance cost for 18 months.

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!

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.

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.

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 switched phones two months ago. Before switching phones I had terrible service but after getting my new phone my service is much much better. I usually have LTE and when I do not I have 4G. Once in a while I will a call where I dial the person and it appears they answer but I do not hear anything so I redial. Not sure if it's my phone or theirs. Overall happy with service and pricing is great.

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.

Reception is very poor to non-existent however, looking at reviews no carrier has good service in this area. They all should have to be held accountable for charging people for no service and then we would see some improvement. As long as they are able to steal money from so many people with impunity they will just continue this criminal acttivity. I say criminal because they are well aware of what they are doing...

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.
