Intermittent or very low reception / transmission. Have to get out of house most of the time. Dropped or not received cqlls very common. Text messages may be received or delivered with great delay or none at all.

My reception for voice is perfect. I have NO dropped calls, dead air, or white noise. My text messages come through fine with no duplicates or delays. My issue has everything to do with the data. When the LTE was first launching, I was a store manager for Sprint and luckily my area was the very first to get a Network Vision tower with speeds of 35 down and 25 up. It was great. I knew once they started adding LTE to other towers around the city that would decrease which was fine. Fast forward to now and I can't get 4G service in or around my home except if it's 1AM when everyone is sleep and no one is hardly using the service. I called Sprint several times and inquired about this, took my phone to the service centers (3 in total for different opinions), and reset my device twice. To no avail, I had to put my antenna to only pick up 3G which has gotten speedier but only in bursts. This is quite aggravating and Sprint continues to tell me that neither of the 2 towers in my vicinity are bad and are working fine. It's terrible that I can't watch any youtube videos, access simple web pages, or even download a picture message without waiting 2-4 minutes.

Get no service at my home. May get one bar pop up now and then. Cannot call, text, get emails, internet. Might get call now and then but have to go outside for any reception. Have to get in the car and drive to another area to use my phone. On top of $85 a month for no service, buying an expensive Galaxy phone, and a big penalty to cancel, going to a Sprint store(can't make call at home)many times, and over 30 min chat online; all I get over and over from chat is "I am sorry,tempory situation, towers being updated." Worked in Katy, Tx last Sept-May, phone rarely worked there either, unless I went outside, still drops. Went to Ind. and Tn over summer and phone worked great. Tired of paying $85 mo and want out.

Since I signed up with Verizon the service has been awful. Instead of 4g LTE I receive 3g and hardly any bars. Lines break up and static.

Only 1 bar, dropped calls, and can't send any pic messages. Regular text gets through about 75% of the time. SUCKS!

Been with Sprint for over ten years. I had really enjoyed my 4G LTE until they decided to go green and improve their network. Now although I am still stuck with paying for an expensive plan, I have dropped calls, calls that go directly to voice mail, delayed text and occasional 3G.

Sprint drops my calls all the time. Data plan is useless. Might as well pay for Cricket Wireless for half the price. You’ll probably won’t notice the difference.

Reception for calls and 4G data was great until Sprint decided to "Go Green" in improving their network. Now the only way I can get reception is by turning off my 4G and operating on 3G when it is available and working. I have been assured it is not my phone but the Network. No break on the expensive data plan I am on either.

I've had service with Sprint since 2004 and never had I experienced such bad data service as I have these last 3 yrs. I truly believe that they have great voice coverage but it's their data 3G / 4G thats hurting their customers. I understand that the are rolling out LTE but c'mon, their 3g data is a joke.. might as well have no data. 3G DOES NOT WORK at all for me, it takes FOREVER to connect. You get what you pay for.

Calls may go straight to voicemail. Unable to send text messages at times. Annoying echoes when able to make or receive calls. Plan to move from Sprint.

T-mobile sold their towers to Crown Castle so they arent liable for signal issues. When you are a new customer your signal is great and then they throttle you down after some time has gone by. My opinion is that they did something to their network around the time that they were about to make the biggest mistake the company could make and thats teaming up with AT&T. I know that alot of you would agree. I have experience in cell towers and how they operate so thats why I have contacted some of my connections with the FCC and some tested will be mandated on every tower that they claim to have.

My coverage has been very good. I’ve been with T-mo for ever can’t remember when maybe over 10 yrs. From phone call’s to data stream it has been great!

Awful signal level inside my home since about a year ago. Contacted several times and went to their retail where they "updated my SIM". Still dropping or unable to place calls from inside home. About 5 months ago a CSR advised they were in the process of installing a new cell in the area, but haven't seen any improvement if they really installed it. Having checked coverage, I might switch to AT&T after 6 years with this carrier.

When I complain about no service, they said that I should get my subdivision to approve a tower. I am about 10 blocks from the T-Mobile store and they have reception. Another time they said they would put my address in for better reception.

I have complained since Febuary 2012 about reception and dropped calls. Last Thursday they said a tower is "planned" at Brittmore and I-10 but no one knows when it will be completed. Cell is my only service so yeah, this sux.
