Coverage in this neighborhood is great, but if you live in the 5350 Burnet apartments, you will need to buy a network extender. There is almost no service at all inside the building. This seems to be a problem for people on the first floor, in particular. Before I got a network extender, I couldn't carry on any conversations on my phone at all. Couldn't send texts, either. With the equipment, it's much, much better. My phone's GPS has no idea where I am when I'm connected through the extender, but that's fine. If I need to look up a map at home, I can just do it on my computer.Was this review helpful to you?

I just dropped off my daughter at Jester Dorm at Univ of Texas. AT&T has no coverage in a dorm with 3000 students! I was in the lobby and outside trying to call my daughter's cell and I had four bars (as did she) and no calls went through. You dial the number and you just get silence. I asked the receptionist in the dorm and she said it was long standing problem. This is crazy in many ways including the fact that I was staying on campus in the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center! This is one of the largest dorms in the US and there are no land line phones in the dorm rooms. How can AT&T not put up a tower nearby to fix this mess. Same problem with text messaging by the way.Was this review helpful to you?
I just moved to this location. Indoors, that is inside my house, I get essentially no reception. I can occasionally get a EV-DO network readout (with no bars), and I can get a ring through, but not enough signal conduct a full phone call or to keep the call from dropping 50% of the time. Outside, I get 1 bar, which is usually enough to finish a phone call. Ultimately, I will have to switch networks.Was this review helpful to you?

For being boost, it works really well, had it for a month, and only one dropped calls. I can hear the other party that I am talking to almost crystal clear. For being prepaid / 50 a month it is amazing. Draw backs are internet is super slow and text messaging always "downloads" the message and is A LOT slower than any other carrier I have had.Was this review helpful to you?
I have enough reception to answer a call, but it is immediately dropped. Data reception is intermittent.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint works great not only in this area but all over Austin. Prior to Sprint had T-Mobile and lived on congress; 1.5 miles from downtown. T-Mobile service was terrible.Was this review helpful to you?
