I have to find a spot in my apartment to stay still, otherwise I can lose the signal while talking to someone. Can't move around.

The cell reception is terrible. I've heard that complaints have been given for years, but no improvement.

Had T Mobile for a few years live near a major road called 1960 and little to no reception even with driving down the street. Text arrive days late, family complains of making calls I never recieve and T Mobile is the only carrier I have had this problem with. VERIZON IS SO MUCH BETTER AND LESS MONTHLY YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE AN IDIOT TO GO WITH T MOBILE. Good luck to you, do your research avoid T Mobile at all costs they will change your monthly bill and managers have education equal to that of my 11 year old nephew.

Very good data and voice reception. Wish McDonalds hot spot wasn't there because it ruins the good LTE signal when your phone wants to switch over.

The service always drops to 3g. The internet reception is very spotty. Verizon has some work to do in this area, but I never get dropped calls, unless I'm talking to someone with another service.

We moved here from Oklahoma with US Cellular. It works decent there. Here the service is very minimal. Make a phone call Send a txt and absolutely zero data. No 4G at all.

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.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Beltway 8 | Bammel N Houston Rd., Houston, TX 77086 |

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.
