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.

Been with T Mobile for 10 years. Had a Blackberry until May and never really had any problems. Switched to a Galaxy Note II in May and could barely use my phone at home and I work at the airport and sometimes I can use it there. I had to set up a router at home so I can make phone calls. Thats beyond ridiculous. Planning on switching as soon as I can figure out who does get a good signal over here.

No service at all inside building on 2nd floor. Step outside and I will have at least 2 bars.

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.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Fry Rd.And Clay Rd. | Greenhouse Rd.And Clay Rd., Houston, TX 77084 |

I had T-Mobile for about 5 years but changed last year to a straight talk pre paid. For me, T-Mobile had great customer service but I always had a data dead zone on Greenhouse and Clay next to my house. It was just at the intersection. Well I bought a new phone that wasn't compatible with t-mobiles data at the time so I went with a prepaid that used AT&T network. Great 4g coverage but it had terrible customers service. So I tried T-Mobile out again now that my phone is compatible with them. I don't have lte, just 4g hspd+, and the data is really odd. It says I have 3g / 4g most of the time but my speed test fluctuate drastically. One test says I have.5Mbps data speeds and the next I have 10Mbps. So idk. This is the third day of having T-Mobile again so I'm going to keep testing out the speeds.

Tethering from my phone is terrible, Most of the time is during peek daytime hours, I traced it to the T-Mobile network and not my pc or phone, I opened a command prompt on my pc and typed in a to trace the rout my connection was taking and the connection timed out on the T-Mobile dns server side. I am somewhat familiar with networking and knew what the ip address was for my phone and at what point it hit the T-Mobile's towers network, this is where I got the timeout message.

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.

Same situation as everyone is having. Long term loyal Sprint customer. Then one day without any warning, the signal just dropped and it's been for months that I do not get calls, I receive text messages as sometimes 6-7 hours later. I called them and they told me that due to upgrade to LTE some of the towers are not functioning well.

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!

TMOBILE signal over here SUCKS! When I'm home I have either 1 or 2 bars. When calling out I'm hearing nothing but dead air, then a mgs tone on the screen saying "CALL FAILED". Try calling out again and getting the same thing over and over. Can't say how many times I get dropped calls. Picture mgs wont go through and neither are my incoming calls. People will text to say that they are calling me, answer my phone but looking at my phone, it will never ring. 30-mins to an hour later I will get the voicemail. What kind of mess is that??

for the past month, I have been having non existent service inside a business building. I can manually switch to GSM only mode and I can get calls, sms and data. But if I am on Auto mode or WCDMA mode, I will get 2-3 bars 4G with no services, no incoming / outgoing phone calls, no incoming / outgoing sms, data is completely dead. that's with 2-3 bars 4G

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...
