The good: Voice talk and text was good. Voice talk wasn't perfect, but good enough..better than Tmobile. The bad: Weak signal for data. At work, I missed a video conference because my signal was to weak. I didn't have this issue with Tmobile(my previous provider) at the exact same location. Retail stores are horrible- I went to the North Lamar Verizon store location and the service was horrible. In addition, the store was run down and only had a few phones on display. T-Mobile beats the retail by far. For the $50.00 difference in cost on montly bills, I switched back to Tmobile. T-Mobile has a lesser talk quality, but as far as everything else goes T-Mobile is just as good and significantly less expensive.

Have tried to use service all over Austin, and can make a call about 20% of the time. Cancelled service, and received another bill for $96 AFTER service was cancelled... $91 for "service" plus late fee. Payments while service was actually on were on automatic payments, and were never late. Sprint rep advised me that porting number would cancel service- now Sprint says that information is wrong, and tough luck- pay the bill. I paid $91 a month for 2 years, and was barely able to use the phone.

I have had AT&T or its successor since 1996. Coverage seems to have degraded in Austin recently. People cannot hear me on my phone on a regular basis. I highly recommend going with another provider. My second iPhone 6 has not improved the situation.

At times, people cannot hear me at all. I hear them fine. It depends on where I am driving. SW Austin has known dead-spots and I have lived with this a long time. Driving downtown on business calls is wholly unsatisfactory - my reception to people going in and out depending on where I turn my vehicle. It projects a feeble and weak business posture to field business calls on a phone where people can't hear you. I am trying to switch to another carrier. My second iPhone 6 has not fixed the problem.

I am in house and ideal location (open location no big buildings not many trees, neighborhood with spread out small wooden houses, central city location) 4G reception. I am getting one bar to two bars most of the time. Am new here and have not tested GPS but I doubt it is going to be useful and am on this website today looking at different carriers. Am really disappointed to see what poor coverage all the carriers are giving in a progressive city, like Austin. Sounds like Austinites ought to stand up and force the issue.

Get junk service in my apartment with an extender. Constant dropped calls or the calls just don't come through. If it weren't for wifi my phone would be useless at home. It is SO frustrating! I don't know that anything would work better. We got amazing service in Houston, what's the deal Verizon?!?

Essentially no coverage indoors and very iffy outdoors. Nearly all calls dropped. Texts often fail. Callers can't leave vmail.

I was under the impression, that when I bought my iPhone 5 I could occasionally use it. I now have a very expensive paper weight and a means of raising my blood pressure instantly. The service is worse than I've experienced with any other carrier ever, and I will be switching soon. I honestly don't see how Sprint is even a major phone company with this kind of coverage. I'd say 1 / 5 calls go through, and those aren't always audible. Seriously seriously disappointed.
