We have very few dropped calls. However, I don't get voicemail messages for at least 3 hours to 45 days. Since I'm dependent on my phone for my job this can be very very bad. I've not gotten important messages, then suddenly I'll have over 50 voicemails. Texting is a PITA. It only works about 30% of the time. I don't get responses and look to find that the texts have never been sent... locked in my outbox. I have the same problem getting texts taht I do with voicemails. Today I got 90 texts, some from December 2010! That is just wrong. Sprint says "oh well". They are not helpful at all with customer service. I can't wait to get out of this contract. Have had them since 1995 and was always happy till the last 18 months. My download speeds are about 3KB per hour. Most websites never load. I just have given up.

T-Mobile better get it together on reception in this area. All company phones are about to dump T-Mobile if not.

I get iffy coverage in certain classroom buildings, but in the dorms I usually have enough signal to make calls. The coverage in the Olmos Park area is pretty bad, and when I am indoors I usually only have enough signal to send a text message but not make a call. I think part of the problem is my phone though. It has been replaced three times in one year due to major software issues.

No service even with all bars showing. Can't receive or make calls until I drive out of the area a mile or so.

Never have problems with Sprint. Reception rarely drops under 4 bars and 80% of the time I've got 5. Dropped calls are usually on the other end. I notice newer Sprint customers have alot of problems. Are newer customers on newer more unreliable frequencies? I've been with Sprint for 8 years and I'm not switching anytime soon.

I had a lot of dropped calls with Cingular until my daughter (who had the same Motorola as us) switched to a Nokia and the problems cleared up. Ours did the same, and now I'm happy because it was the phone and not Cingular that was the issue. Reception is overall good; I do have an occasional difficulty in Ft Sam Houston buildings, but otherwise the calls can be clearly heard, little / no static when it does occur. Bottom line: Motorola phones suck, Nokia rules! Cingular service is great.

Great Sprint service here. I've had no problems traveling throughout San Antonio and the I-35 corridor. Phone worked great through I-10 corridor toward Houston. Sprint works wonderfully in metro areas.

I've been a Sprint customer for several years now (personal and work). Over that time I've used an old basic Nokia candy bar, the original Motorola clam, a Samsung A460, and currently a Samsung A620. I live in New Braunfels, work at Lackland AFB, and travel across the US for business, and regardless of where I am or which phone I've used, SPRINT SUCKS! With up to 3 lines on contract at any given time, I expected more. The contract ends shortly and so will our relationship! I'd rather return to smoke signals than to endure the endless dropped calls, spotty service, or horrible roaming coverage any more.

Connection up and down Broadway is fine, but I live in an old brick house and reception indoors is pathetic. Almost guaranteed that a call over 5mins will drop. I also get the digital skips during any conversation, regardless of signal, so that I have to ask people to repeat themselves often. Cingular's customer service reps have been friendly but reception quality in my house and the skipping problem make me ready to try something else.
