4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Austin, Austin, TX 78701 |

Never had any trouble with signal or dropped calls until my phone aged. ie. dropped it, threw it, ran over it, washed it, swam with it... Got a new one and excelent service. Wouldn't think of having anyone else for a provider. I travel quite a bit and go boating, and still got service when all my iphone buddies did not. :-D

AT&T refuses to admit their bad service is the reason that I am on my 4th phone. I take care of my phone. It has a protective rubber cover and gets put into another case when I put it in my purse. Calls locally here in Austin get dropped, and calls to Houston also get dropped regardless if I am inside or outside. I try to dial a number and it drops the call before it ever starts ringing on my end. Today I called downtown Austin and the person on the other end told me he couldn't understand me because I was breaking up so bad. The closest cell phone tower to me is at 4301 Slaughter (5.4 miles), and 4525 IH 35 South (7.2 miles). I feel lucky if I can get in touch with my sister whose house is only 4 miles away from me.

none of the carriers have signal in this apartment complex. however, t mobile has a wifi connection for free that you can use your wifi on and therefore get great fantastic service. when using the wifi connection it doesn't go against your minutes. I believe this is the only carrier that offers this solution. t mobiles customer service is the best I've ever had. I just bought the g 2 x. Great phone.

Almost no reception at all. Calls are full of static and frequently dropped. I walked around the complex and couldn't get more than one bar. Ironically, I live half a mile from the Cricket Store.

i recently moved to austin and live with friends on the south side of the city. My phone says I have at least 3 bars but continues to drop calls. When I try to call out it is silence and no ring. I use to live in Chicago and had great service even when living in a basement apartment I'm very disappointed!

The reception in our home is very bad, dropping voice. We used to have AT&T before, I will be going back.

Unable to receive texts from AT&T on the Sprint network after update from Sprint. Called Sprint service and Sprint said they had no means to test or diagnose the problem and attempted to blame their interoperability on AT&T although it was due to a Sprint update. They had no idea what was wrong and were unable to diagnose the problem. Completely incompetent. Canceled contract due to poor service and incompetence. Suggest Sprint users to cancel Sprint, rebel against contracts and excessive charges by providers.

My phone is useless on campus. Useless. I don't get dropped calls; I don't even GET calls. Internet, weather apps, news updates, sending texts--forget it. When I walk of campus, my phone jingles, and I have 20+ emails, texts, and voicemails. AT&T is worthless here. I'm not sure what I am going to do in this case, but since I have a lawyer provided to me through UT, I promise I won't be sticking with AT&T

I go to UT and service here sucks. I thought it was just me, but I know a couple of areas that no one gets good service. Seems pretty consistent that all phone companies are making people pay for no service, you're not alone!

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.
