5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Marbach / horal, San Antonio, TX 78227 |

I have switched cell phone carriers started out with Sprint the reception was very poor. The bill kept going higher its was like the more I talked I was charged for anything. Next I switched to Cingular or now AT&T which was the worst mistake ever so many dropped calls, I would not receive text messages, miss calls, and the cell phone had to replace it four times stayed as a loyal customer of course to avoid paying the switching fees I waited for the contract to be over and cut them off. You call them though to confirm because I had to call several times to cancel and they would tell me ok and then the next mo I would get another bill tell them to tell you when the billing cycle ends. Now I'm with T-Mobile and has been the best decision since then I have gone to canada and it worked out there with no worries since staying in contact with my family is a plus while I was away. I also had bought a backup prepaid cell phone for backup and that also worked fine in canada called the family and was amazed with the reception and clarity on the prepaid cell phone.

Had been a long-time and satisfied Sprint customer, all over the city, since moving to San Antonio 8 years ago. However, the past 3-4 months, way too many dropped calls, mostly north side, and regularly placed on analog roam in the area around Blanco / Huebner / Bitters. Thought it might be temporary, but recently gave up and switched to T-Mobile. T-Mobile's service in the 1st month in the same areas has been excellent, very strong, clear signal and no dropped calls.

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

I was being generous with the rating. Do NOT attempt using your Sprint service on Callaghan in the Medical Center. I thought it may have been a phone issue, but replacing it didn't resolve the matter and friends / family with Sprint service have also been without coverage.

I signed a 2 year contract 4 months ago with Nextel / Sprint. Great phones! Love mine and my wifes. But tell me, what good are they if we cant ever call each other. I have to go outside to use mine, wont hardly work in the house. 80% of my calls are to my wife, but maybe 5% of the time can I ever get an answer from her due to no reception. It really doesn't matter where she is, or I am, we cant get one another. So I am now considering taking the worst hit of all, and pay to get out of the deal, and seek another carrier. Don't get sucked in by all the great phones at Sprint / Nextel, you won't be able to use them!

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.

Whether I am insider or outdoors, I never have a problem with signal... The coverage is great and I never worry about dropped calls. If I drive around the city I never worry about not having service...

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.
