T-Mobile cell signal is not available in most areas of the hospital, resorted to using hospital wifi to call using skype. Every other cell company signal is very stronge, except for T-Mobile.

I have used Sprint, AT&T, and T-mobile. I currently use Sprint and get better coverage and data coverage than I did when I was with AT&T or T-mobile. AT&T is comparable to Sprint in the River Oaks area but the other main area I go to (Willowbrook) I got slim to no coverage. T-Mobile just sucks.

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.

It was a stupid move on Sprints part to switch to the Spark service before their LTE service was even fully up and running. Spark has been horrible and the worst part about it is you can't even talk on the phone and surf the web anymore. Defintely canceling service and switching over to Verzion at the end of April. It's true what they say, you get what you pay for!

No data inside house. Works so and so out on terrace. Much better coverage in Italy with Tim even if house is 500 years old with walls in bricks and stones half a meter thick...

T-Mobile 's connection really sucks. There's absolutely no help whatsoever. Their map coverage is a joke. For years, they haven't improved at all. I really am considering leave them now. They make you feel like I am or where I live is the one to blame! 🔨👎

Outside I have good receptiin, but as soon as I step into my house I lose reception. I even got one of their signal boosters, but a booster can't boost a signal that's not there. I left T-Mobile years ago because of this same problem, but came back because according to their maps I should have good coverage. Apparently their signal is so weak it doesn't penetrate walls well. Do yourself a favor and find a friend with T-Mobile and check coverage before switching. They may be good for others, but for me they really suck!

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.

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.

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.

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!

This is the worst cell-phone service I have ever experienced. I would not use T-Mobile if they gave me their service for free. I feel like I was scammed into purchasing their services with their "pay your disconnection fee and free phone" now I have service that doesn't work. My line of work requires my clients to be able to call me at any given time and since my phone keeps sending them to voicemail and I cant call out I actually loose money with these people. They wont cancel my plan without making me pay for all of the phones I have on my lines and let me go back to Verizon. Do you self a favor and dont fall for their sales scam like I did. I dont see how these people are still in business.

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.
