I live around Austin area my reception sucks! We need more towers on the area we're paying to much for less that's not fair for the price and insurance that doesn't cover anything... im ready for my contract to be over. I heard great things about t-mobile.

Renewed my Sprint contract last Saturday (5 / 31 / 2014) and purchased 2 new I-5 phones. From day 1 have had many problems dialing out and receiving calls on both phones. Alter 3 phone calls to Sprint service and them telling me my network was just fine, I called me Sprint repair center store where I purchased my phone and they told me for the last 5 days they have had many complaints and they have terrible network / tower problems Austin, TX 78727) and don't have a clue when they will be fixed. $170.00 a month for what??? I've been missing important calls, some of which I will eventually get a voice mail only! How should I pay Sprint? I am retired and each penny counts!

Dropped calls, unsent texts, poor reception. This in the Indian Oaks subdivision of Milwood, between Parmer and 183, north of McNeil. Similar problem with T-Mobile but that was several years ago. Switched to Verison and it's no better, maybe worse. I will be upgrading my phone and carrier.

Over 20 years at sprint, I have spent hours with their technical folks over the last 6 weeks. The of nly way to stay on the phone without a call failed is to use skype. They decided to send me an air rave, which takes 8-10 days to arrive ? I plugged it immediately upon arrival thinking it would actually help :( nope. Then I got the email saying if I don't use the air rave I would be charged $140. I just thought to myself "dorks". Then thye sent a letter to my office " you will be charged $140 if you don't use your Air rave, which means the accounting department had to discuss the letter and them come to me. Now I am into some serious money for "talking about sprint" and I still have little to zero service in Austin. I hang in there... After all Sprint wants to help with "My" problem. In addition to dropped calls there is a message "you have entered the incorrect number or code. Message 7. Code 2301 - which really a code to tell them the issue and has nothing to do with the number you dial. Now, I have been told by Sprint that my Clear internet is not strong enough to assist the Air rave. Quess who owns Clear now? Sprint. Then I got a bill for extra minutes - for talking to tech support? Customer service said they would give me $50 off the $100 extra dollars? Gee whiz. Add this to charging my company $30 a month for a phone I have "successfully" cancelled twice that I have been letting slide and technically they need a bill from me. I am seriously frustrated and wish I had time to pursue the matter with their top executives. They should just say, "we are sorry our service is not as good in your area as it used to be we understand how important your phone service is and we suggest using another carrier until we can win you back" Wow! That would have been so great. They could put me on the list, call me back and I would have come back whenever they wanted. Instead we have all wasted hours and I still have to find new cell phone and internet service due to "my problem" - gee and I used to be so great at getting service.

SPRINT IS CRAP- I use my phone for business and keep hanging up on clients daily which makes me loose sales and seems unprofessional. I'm dropping 50% of my calls which is bs and you can't tell me that Sprint is not aware of it or this site-will be switching to someone else after research.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Burnet Rd. | Hwy. 183, Austin, TX 78757 |

I've had T-Mobile for about 5 years now and I haven't had many issues with reception while in Austin. Only when traveling out of Travis County I have lower signal and speeds dropped to 2G. While using my Nexus 5 and on LTE I get download speeds anywhere between 20-35mbps. So far the best speed of 38 down / 15up was in the Anderson Mill / 620 area. I'm very satisfied with the service especially for the price I'm paying.

Sprint map show our house as having full 3G coverage. However, the phones in our house are roaming. Wish we knew who was covering it.

Coverage map shows 4g, but 3g barely works. If I didn't have WiFi, the phone would be a brick. Was getting 4g at work near zilker and Mopac, 3g barely works there too.

Extremely poor reception. Lucky if I can even get text messages... let's not even get started on dropped calls. Reception is practically useless all over Austin not just the north side.

Reception is poor. Have to go outside to talk on my phone. Has been this way forever. Neighbors have the same problem. We are all thinking of switching to a new carrier. Please fix this problem or we are gone.

Very bad reception in the house - unusable to talk. Have tried this with other phones and carriers in the same year and Verizon is consistently the worst for our area.

Every since Sprint switched to 4 G LTE, I am getting spotty coverage all over the Austin Area, bad at my home and almost non-existent at my office, can't even send receive Text messages. When is Sprint going to FIX THIS!

We switched to Sprint a few months ago, and the service has always been spotty, but it's been... well, you can't really even call it "service" anymore since we can't use our phones at our house. Calls are dropped repeatedly *every time* we make a call. And that's assuming we can even get a call to go out. Incoming calls are even worse. They don't show up, so we don't even know if we're missing them. We've called and been told they're doing maintenance, which seems to be the standard line, and we've done the online chat with a representative to diagnose the problem. Guess what, it's not our phone. But since going through that process and updating some stuff, now I can't even leave a voicemail for my wife if she's at our house. It rings about 8 times and then a recording comes on saying they can't complete the call. So we're paying them gobs of money every month for essentially nothing. The salt on the wound was when we called their service center and the call dropped a couple of times. They called back and asked us to use another phone to talk with them. I suppose irony is lost on corporate America.

Neither of our phones keep reception while in our home neighborhood. I haven't had a home phone in 10 years, but I had to add one back so that we can make calls when at home.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Lakewood Dr. | Cascada, Austin, TX 78750 |

I have been with Sprint for over 10 years now, most of which here in Austin, first at Scofield Ridge and now in Lakewood. Sprint has gone through phases, but this is the worst it has ever been. 3G speeds are so slow I can't even browse often times, and dropped calls, blocked calls, calls that ring, but never show up in your phone (until you get a voicemail), poor call quality, failed text messages are common place more than ever now. I understand they are upgrading to LTE, but this is just very poor service. It seems every carrier has its issues, but I am hoping it will be better at AT&T or Verizon as I am heading there next. There is no way I am getting a new LTE phone and staying with Sprint... It's gotten bad enough that I am making an effort to shop around.

T-Mobile has spotty, if at best the worse coverage on Equestrian Trail (78727) and in the area. Dropped calls are constant.

I get great phone and internet coverage with Verizon. I work at a hospital and that is the only time I have ever had any problems with internet (super slow or doesn't work at all). I assume it is because of the building.
