I'm actually with Virgin Mobile but I understand it is run by Sprint. I always have 3 bars where ever I go. The Data sucks. I hate the internet. Overall it's great for the price. $40 a month with 1200 mins and UnLtd texts and data.

Switched from Sprint to Verizon after moving to Wyoming. Great service there, horrible here. Cant make or receive calls, only text, now stuck with 2yr contract with a phone that wont make calls. Pathetic.

Dropped calls all the time and slow downloads. I would never watch a movie using Netflix because 4G is slow. I haven't read any good reviews for other carriers either so I guess bad is better than awful.

Absolutely Horrible service on any level of 2G-4G LTE. Nothing but dropped calls, 9 / 10 failed texts, missed calls, lost dropped calls, data can't connect, never gets LTE, DATA is in a perpetual spin like it can't find the server.sprint in this area is also equally below poor. Both AT&T and Verizon are completely opposite in this section of the city with perfect connections on calls,texts, and Data every single time.

I had better connection with an old LG phone, but recently updated to Samsung Note 2 and cannot get service inside my home and it is spotty in lots of other areas. I originally thought that my phone was faulty, but got to make a call and receive a call today, but the intensity of signal from towers is spotty. Ron Geiken

I am getting 31Mbs download speeds using 4G LTE at my home. Other areas in Phoenix are some times spotty, 40 St. and Indian School for one.

Roaming in central phoenix! Really! This has been going on for a while now. I have had voice mail where the phone never rang. I have had people try to call me where the phone never rang. I contact Sprint and tell them this problem and I feel like they know it and only pretend to try to solve the problem. I think the whole company from top to bottom is dishonest and they will tell you anything to get you to sign up or keep taking your money. I am so close to dumping these a-holes and burning the contract.

I was thinking of switching to T-Mobile to save money, but after talking to T-Mobile users, reading reviews and now reviewing this site and coverage areas... I am staying with Verizon, I love Verizon coverage, WORKS EVERY WHERE! Customer service has always been oustanding and the only place I have ever dropped a call is on the 51 just north of northern when going through the mountains..I am glad I researched comments, thanks everyone for posting, it really helped me make my decision;-)

I have had Sprint since it was Nextel. There are a few drop spots, but all in all my service is very good. We now have 4G so I am happy. I wish Sprint service was a little better up on the Rim, but I'm sure it will be in time. Sprint users... Don't give up hope! Their service is getting better all the time and we have unlimited data on the phone for the best price around.. No complaints there!

Sprint is spotty in this area (as it is in most areas of Phoenix). I do not receive good signal at my house and drop / do not receive calls multiple times per day. T-Mobile and Verizon both work fine in this area. Not sure about AT&T

Been with Sprint for several years and I'm not very happy with them anymore. I have a 4G phone and still not getting that type of service for it. They have been saying for a few years or more that they would get 4G and 4G LTE in the phoenix area. But has not happened and don't know if it ever will. Lots of times my reception is terrible and not clear enough especially when I'm at home. There is no excuse for this nonsense. I look forward towards going to another provider real soon. Many times my bars are 0-1, maybe 2 bars on occasion. Many areas away from my location the bars are more. What's up with this Sprint?

I average only two bars when in my home. Dropped calls are common. Not very happy with at&t's service in my neighborhood.

AT&T

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | 40th St. | Baseline, Phoenix, AZ 85040 |

I am a very experienced in mobile telephony technology and used to test mobile phones (on all major carriers) as well as variious networks for prominent online websites. In the past year, I have moved to the area from the midwest in the past year. While overall coverage in Phoenix is not as good in some other major metropolitan areas, I have found that calls and tests in the greater metropolitan area of Phoenix to be very good with AT&T. Data services on LTE work well when outdoors, but due LTE's frequency, data services can be mixed in indoors. HSPA(+) services work have better building penetration and work much better overall in the area. Using a variety of test methods, I have found AT&Ts signal overall to be quite good, with Verizon's coming in a close second and T-Mobiles to be quite good as well. My test set indicates rather poor performance for Sprint in certain areas and with poor data connectivity throughout the valley.

For the first two months of service with Sprint my phone worked perfectly with great coverage.( after regretfully leaving verizon) I am losing calls, not able to send text messages or use my pandora on my smart phone. I wish I stayed with verizon. this is ridiculous being in a large city and not having coverage to make 1 call without it being dropped.

I've been a Verizon customer for about 12 years. The service finally degraded to the point that I had wildly fluctuating "bars" and voice calls going in and out. This occurred for both of our phones, in and out of the house. Verizon first failed to follow up (techs not returning calls), then gave poor instructions (Mark 5-8 calls, then wait for us to call you back, when the system then "dropped" my ticket as I wasn't marking any more calls.) Then told it was SIM card (no, both our phones). Finally Verizon admits I am in a "marginal service area" that is getting worse because of lots of new customers. They MAY improve service in a year (how unspecified.) I was told to get a new piece of equipment so I could get my voice calls over the internet (yet continue to pay Verizon for service they can't provide.) FINALLY they admit I can leave Verizon without any penalty (contract fee)-- we'll see. I am told to "find another provider that works better" and switch. Of course, one can't know if the service is better until the change is made-- it could be worse, right? Any thoughts on a better provider in my area?
