Wow, yes, Sprint really is awful - and I agree with many of the other reviews on the signal. I have been told for months now that Sprint's horrible reception would be improved and its only gotten WORSE! Not to mention all the other frustrations: a loud keypad tone in the middle of calls, the inability to download voicemails, constant dropped calls, NO signal at my home in Black Forest... it really is sickening how much my family pays for how LITTLE we can actually use our phones. I do NOT recommend Sprint to anyone.

I have tried them all in Colorado and Verizon is by far the best. T-Mobile has 2g in most areas I travel to. They lied to me in store but on line it showed. Sprint was OK 2 years ago but now I wouldn't even consider. At@t I dropped or didn't connect 15-20% of the time. I just added a tablet and 1 only pay $170 for 4 phones and a tablet with 11gb. Very happy.

Same problem we had last fall. Phones die overnight. We've checked our batteries and they are fine. Are they working on towers again? If I take my phone into the bedroom for the night (fully charged), by morning it's dead. Last night my husband's phone was fully charged, in the family room, and this morning it's dead. What gives?

Sprint tells me every month that in 30 days the new network will be fixed, and it has yet to happen. The store on woodmen say at the end of May it will be done but I doubt it. I have dropped calls daily, times I have no service at all and a very loud button pushing sound that only I can hear, very annoying I miss half of my call because of that damn sound. It is the worst service I've ever had in the springs. I went to Dallas recently didn't work well there either and I had a 3 hour dead zone on the drive there. I hate sprint.

Since 4G LTE rolled out around December 2013, i'm loving T-Mobile in the Colorado Springs market! Verizon is basically a poor market area, according to them. Sprint is ok, if your outside or near the more populous parts of town. STILL waiting on LTE. ATT, I honestly dont know.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Palmer Park Area | Maizeland, Colorado Springs, CO 80909 |

At the end of 2013 T-Mobile flipped the LTE switch for colorado springs, since then I noticed a HUGE IMPROVEMENT of DATA and call signals in and around the city! I had them before going to Verizon ( which I had no signal in and within a half mile of maizeland that could hold a call). When I spoke to T-Mobile about this they said since flipping on LTE, that signal reaches much further than the old 3g they were using and since they dont have too many customers like Verizon, I'm seeing speeds in my basement that are on par with my home wifi! I was also told that this isnt the end, they are still working on beefing up LTE to the small areas outside the city, like manitou / cripple creek / etc... they even paid my Early Termination Fees for leaving Verizon and paid me enough for my Verizon note 3 that I barely paid 300 for my new T-Mobile note 3 and insurance / Jump ( where I can trade in every 6mo) is just 10 dollars a month bringing my total monthly bill to 95 dollars for unlimited everything! I paid almost 180 a month with Verizon for 4gb of lte that didnt work half the time unless I was downtown! Tmobile in the Springs and Denver is now top notch in my opinion and blows the competitino away!

Sprint has one tower that is on the east side of Palmer Park so consequently, we have one or no bars on the west side of Palmer Park. There are many dead spots around town too. Sprint offered us a free AirRave (Femtocell that uses the Internet) and it works, but causes some problems with texting and drops calls as you leave the house and transition.

Anyone giving a fair review knows that every carrier has holes and no carrier has the best signal everywhere. My GF has T-Mob and we are always comparing. Much more often Verizon has the best signal and highest data rates. (She left AT&T for T-Mob because AT&T has horrible coverage on the West side and she was shopping for a value plan) I also work around lots of vendors in the tech industry and so I see the phones of most carriers and I like to compare with them. Especially as Verizon completes their roll out of 4G LTE I see they have the best coverage over the most area in the Springs, and it is FAST!

Verizon has deemed this area a "limited coverage zone" or, in other words, a "dead zone." You have the options of: purchasing a $250 network extender (ask for a $75 discount), suspend your service for up to 6 months out of 1 year in 3 month increments, or cancel your contract and get service from another carrier. If you choose to find another carrier, make sure they have coverage in this area and you are able to get out of your contract if you find out that this is really not true. Please share with others what carriers have worked in this area. Thanks for reading and good luck.

I consider my reception as poor and unreliable. I seldom have good reception at my own home and I need my phone for personal use and business. I am truly sorry that I picked Sprint as a carrier, and the main reason I did is because it seemed like a deal when I had to pick a carrier. To be fair I had a Trac Fone before I bought my Galaxy S4, and the reception was not very good then either but I paid much less for poor service.

well Friday 11 / 22 / 13 was 9 weeks with dropped calls from Sprint service. last time I called I was told it would be fixed between 11 / 20 and 11 / 24. well it still dropping calls. it was just dropping most of calls north side of springs. now its by Peterson af base. and down to fort carson now. wow can they get any worse. they sure can now its affecting falcon peyton area and black forest. they obviously don't care. I am tired of calling them to ask for a credit on the 9 weeks I have had no service. its funny when you go on there website they have a section that explains how they take care of customers and their code of ethics on their service they supply. the last timt I called them I lost signal 5 times. twice I did get through. they were checking why I have no service. they still say it my phone. dummies. 2 of the calls I did get through they ask for phone #. I lost both calls as I was talking with them. you would think they would call me back like I asked them to do if I lose signal. not 1 of the 2 I talked to did. I'm sure they were happy as hell to lose my call. DO NOT USE SPRINT IF YOU ARE SWITCHING FROM A DIFFERENT SERVICE. TRUST ME YOU WILL NOT HAVE ANY WITH SPRINT. still cannot get any info on how to email or call corporate.

In my location, I have had probably 80% ok signal strength and not that many dropped calls overall. THAT SAID, there have been a number of occasions when I have had call after call drop (one morning nearly 20 dropped calls, including 12 with Verizon customer service on the line!) -- and especially since this past August. I don't believe them anymore whatever they tell me. I think they've cut back on some towers and won't admit it. I would drop Verizon in a heartbeat for anyone else if their signal and reliability in CO Springs was better. Unfortunately for me, no one else here IS better. :(

We just moved here from Minneapolis (where I never had an issue with my Sprint coverage) but here we can't get any coverage, we can only talk on the phone for 2 seconds and then the call drops! What the heck is going on? With all the technology out there we can't get coverage for our phone calls? This is not good for Sprint and we are thinking of breaking out contract to go with another carrier that CAN get coverage in this area... ... come on Sprint, all the money you guys make from your customers this is not right!

I call Sprint once a week since service has been down. Friday nov 8th will be 7 weeks since nonservice. They say they are switching from 3g to 4g. So anything south of the oracle bldg to about woodmen and south to peterson AF and fort carson not working. You can call someone for 20 secs. I have tried telling them its their service that sucks. All they say is we will put a ticket in on that area. They act stupid not answering any of the ?'s I ask. I was promised a $100 refund for month of oct. So far just crap. Now I just recieved my other bill full $137. They are crappy. Ive been with them for 3 years now. Loved their service. But 7bweeks ago that stopped. Customer no service wont help you. Tried to get the corp. #. They wont give it to me. For stealing our money and getting no service at all. All my customers that have Sprint cannot use theirs either. Some of them are forced to buy some tower from them that lets them have service in their homes. Which sucks. They should give them out for free since they are the ones not fixing the problem. So if you are thinking of switching to Sprint dont do it. The site says its good service here but they lie. If you my contract is over with them but been holding on to see if they will fix soon. According to the Sprint store on N Academy and woodmen it wont be fixed till jan 20th. Thats really bad. Do not switch to Sprint unless you dont like talking to people.

Been told by AT&T that the coverage in my area is "good to marginal". I got a free Mircocell from AT&T and still get 4-6 dropped calls per day. Texts are more reliable, but not 100%. i've requested that they send out a technician that will get his ass out of his truck and come into my house to see the blue tape on the floor where my phone reception is best. Customer Service is very good, however. If you have poor coverage, keep calling. Request a bill adjustment, etc. It doesn't improve your coverage but it's something.. Other carriers are similar, all with no plans to add towers to help. Suggest that you discuss coverage thoroughly before signing a 2-yr contract.

Worst experience ever and even Verizon admit the coverage area has signal issue. However, they will not let me switch to another carrier. Since moving in from Hawaii, I have not been able to use my phone yet I pay over US$ 120 PM. Still fighting to get out of the contract and forget the cell phone for a while since all sucks in this area.

According to the Sprint store out here, Sprint has been going through the motions of making its network in the springs relevant. Despite some headaches during this network update period, Sprint still has the best coverage out east, wife is on T-Mobile and is roaming the whole time.
