Continually drop calls in at my house. Had to purchase a cell range extender that plugs into my broadband. Works well intermittently, and makes calls unintelligible other times. As a home based business, that means all my money goes to sprint, but the vast majority of the traffic is actually supported by my ISP. Good deal for Sprint. Right up until I leave when my contract runs out in about 2 months. Good riddance. Been comparing how various friends' phones work here, and I'm leaning heavily towards Verizon.

Service west of Manchaca and Buda is extremely poor. I have decent 4G coverage, but consistently one bar of service. This wasn't the case a year ago; their service has just become that poor. When I attempt to make phone calls I have to go outside and even then my signal breaks up and calls drop. This in an area allegedly covered by AT&T. I will be pursuing an early end to my contract due to their lack of service.

Lose phone calls in house and at Onion Creek overpass on I-35 on my LG. My husband has a Blackberry and drives around Austin to check jobs all day. Loses a lot of phone calls. Looking for a different carrier now. Verizon was better than Sprint in Austin.

Lots of call drops inside house. Sometimes I have one bar or less. Outside a bit better. I would get 2 to 3 bars. Wish Sprint one a tower nearby.

I've been a long time AT&T customer. The only time I ever had an issue with service was when the original iPhone 4 dropped. The network got super saturated with new iPhone users and my service was unusable. Apple took the bullet for AT&T saying it was an antennae issue with the new iPhone and sent everyone a free bumper case but magically a month later everything started working just fine and nobody ever spoke about it again... Other than that instance, I have little to no issue with AT&T. Their service is at par or better than Verizon or Sprint in my area. Sure I get the occasional dropped call but it's almost always with the same people which makes me thing it's not me. My current contract has expired leaving me with the freedom to change carriers. I have heavily reviewed my options and am going to stick with AT&T. One reason is I'm grandfathered into unlimited data. But even then, comparing to Sprints Unlimited plan for $99 it's a wash. With AT&T's roll over minutes I never have overages. If I talked more on the phone I suppose this would be an issue but I don't so it works out for me. AT&T is a good value if you know exactly what you need.

Can't use phone inside of house in Plum Creek. I never had a problem with this when I lived in Austin.

Reception varies constantly and a few calls are dropped in spite of being near the top of a hill in northern Kyle.

Service in my apartment is spotty. Usually I can make complete calls, but calls drop much more often that I would like. The sound quality isn't great either. Overall, it is OK but likely there are better providers for this neighborhood.

Always dropping calls or searching for signal. AT&T refuses to admit poor reception issues.
