Sprint says I'm in the heart of their coverage zone. But for my phone and my wifes low end Samsung phone, we get no reception at our house. I can walk down the stree about 200 yards and I get full 3 and 4g service. Even sadder is that I have Clear as my Internet provider, and it works on a 4g signal (Clear is owned by Sprint) and I get a full 4g signal in the center of my house with no outside walls. My friends with Crickett and Verizon have no issues at my house or any part of my house.

Reception has become almost non-existent the last few days and AT&T says they can't figure it out although there is a degraded tower at NW Military and Wurzbach Pkwy. which they say has nothing to do with dropped calls, people can't hear me, and text messages will not go out

We have been having issues with reception for the past 3 months or so all around the NE side of SA. We have 4 phones under Sprint and talked to several reps with Sprint about these issues and they have given us numerous answers. Some said that there was no towers down, some saying that there was a tower down, some saying that they are being upgraded to the LTE... We are so fed up with the dropped calls / echoes / static.The last rep said it might go on til Sept... Altogether we are spending $300 / month for crap service and they will not let us out of our contract! We made a complaint to the BBB. We have been with Sprint for 10 plus years and we are never signing another contract with them.

the reception changes drastically from one minute to the next. if I begin a call with a five bar signal, within ten minutes there is a 50 / 50 chance the call will be dropped. nobody at cricket can explain this. other cricket customers have the same trouble when using their phone at my house. this is my third phone in three months, so it isn't a problem with the phone.

I have had Sprint service since BEFORE digital, and over the years of my travels all over Texas it was really the only choice for great coverage. That may no longer be true now (2012) but I would have to say that in all those years I have never experienced a dropped call.

I get perfect signal with AT&T, I just don't like that I have to turn my data network on and off so I won't go over and pay extra! Other then that no drop calls mised text or voicemails.

"Poor" is being generous. Usually there's NO reception and I must drive ~2 miles away to make a call. AT&T says they're adding or upgrading towers (depending on who you talk to), but nothing's changing. Before I moved here I used 10%. Last month I RAN OUT after just 2 weeks. Once I proved I had to make 5-6 phone calls (in succession) to the same party, AT&T gave me 500 extra minutes. I had to call THEM several times just to complete a conversation. They'd keep saying "you're breaking up" at which point I'd scream "That's because I have AT&T!" I upgraded to the Captivate because I thought my cheap flip-phone was the problem. Not so! Under the 30-day warranty, this phone is going back, my "no contract" status will be restored, and I can go with another carrier. I'd love some suggestions, but from what I'm reading here, it seems they all stink in San Antonio!

I had Sprint and had great coverage in my house. Switched to AT&T for an iPhone about Oct 2008 and have experienced lots of dropped calls and failed call attempts. Even walking around in my neighborhood (outside) the problem exists. I also have an AT&T blackberry for work which has poor reception.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | San Antonio North, San Antonio, TX 78232 |

I have 2 phones on 2 different carriers(Htc hero / sprint and blackberry / ATT). Sprint has 100% better reception than ATT. From inside South texas deer blinds near Freer and Rockport TX to South Padre, my ATT friends are always asking to use my Sprint phone(past 8 years). It is frustrating when I can't get a signal inside buildings with ATT at 281 / Bitters, Fredricskburg road, 151 / 1604 but and I switch to my spriint phone and it works. The Verizon ads are dead on about ATT coverage maps.
