When I drive down S. Congress between Ben White and Riverside, I completely lose my signal... both phones.

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.

Dropped calls, inability to send or receive calls, inability to send or receive texts, have to go outside for caller to hear me, no bars or 1 bar (at best). Verizon Wireless customer service would rather lose me as a customer than pony up for a signal booster.

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.

Lousy reception always. Can go from full 5 bars to zero without even moving in my own kitchen. Calls dropped always. I-35 from Riverside to 290 south drop calls at least twice due to the rolling highway. I have gone from 3500 minutes a month to using less than 200 due to inability to hold / complete / make calls. How in the world are we supposed to communicate?

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.

I have enough reception to answer a call, but it is immediately dropped. Data reception is intermittent.

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.
