I live and work in the same area and am paying for service on a phone that doesn't ring. I have to go outside to send a text to a phone that isn't an Apple product.

Converted from T-Mobile a couple years ago and found the reception perfect by comparison to Tmobile. Things could have changed since but inconvenient to change, when you already have the best.

This is a new apartment complex. While visiting there I received no bars at all on my phone. If I went outside I was lucky to get 2 bars. I could not even make a call.

I am thoroughly disgusted with Sprint. When I discovered a few years ago that the new tower under construction at the corner of Broadway Blvd.and Randolph Way was for Sprint 4G, my hopes soared because I live closer than a mile from that tower and my Sprint service had always been lousy, with a single bar of 3G and calls dropping and fading, even if I stayed rooted to a single spot during a conversation. Well, that 4G tower made zero difference in my Sprint signal. How can that possibly be? I live LESS THAN HALF A MILE from the tower! Several months ago I went into the Sprint store at Broadway and Campbell and mentioned the poor signal, so they pulled up a tower report and, to my dismay and disgust, was told that the tower configuration was complete and that I could hope for no further improvement. They offered me an Airave device at no charge, but that's a pretty lame solution because all it does is use the Internet to fake a stronger cellular signal in your house. What if I had no Internet? I'd be SOL. So, I'm dumping Sprint as soon as my contract is up and will probably go with T-Mobile (can't beat unlimited data), which seems to have the right idea about a lot of things cellular, even if their nationwide coverage isn't the greatest. At least that gives them some incentive to improve! Sprint owns all of the cellular spectrum and sells slices to its competitors, so I'm guessing their carrier business is secondary. It shows!

To put it simple, Sprint in Tucson sucks. Other places, it's average at best. Sprint advertises "4G LTE" in Tucson. I get LTE in places few and far between. Mostly on the east side around Broadway and Camino Seco, some parts on Speedway, but even at my own house (Campbell and 6th) it's ALWAYS on 3G. The calls drop frequently and overall just very dissatisfied. On a scale of 1-10 on the service in Tucson, I'd say 3 at best. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

I hate sprint. The sales person lied and misled me into a horrible plan. I was also being charged for a phone I never had. Now I'm getting the runaround a about an adjustment. I was told insurance covers everything including water spills and of course when I went into the store I was told I needed to pay 200.00 more dollars. Don't get into a contract with these people. Liers and tricksters

I switched to Sprint because after 9 yrs with Verizon it seemed that cost kept going up I was on a fam plan with 3 phs unlimited with 2gs of internet..No other plans available for less cost so I switched to Sprint.. My biggest beef with Sprint is you cannot speak to anyone.. They give you a number to call and of course it's automated and still no live person.. It is really frustrating..

My phone service is fine, although I have to use the wifi quite a bit. My partners service is iffy at best. If he does get service, the reception is often poor. Their billing is horrendous and their representatives all tell you different things. I have been fighting with them regarding the bill for 2 months; they keep telling me it's straightened out, then I find out a couple of weeks later that it hasn't been taken care of at all. I finally ended up reporting them to the BBB. One of their representatives was extremely rude and actually suspended our service. We are going to go with another carrier; probably Verizon.

There is fair to poor service. Does not look like Verizon is going to do anything about it.

Verizon has very good reception at our location. Their billing management needs a lot of work. If you go into the store and make a change or want to add something the information doesn't get to the website. If you have to make a change to your service in any way, follow up to make sure the change is done correctly.

I wish people would just give comments on reception. I don't care really about your bad customer service experience, as all the services lack in that department. But I have Tmobile, which was an improvement on ATT on my iphone 4s. 2 years ago ATT suddenly went 4 to 2 bars, suddenly dropping many of my calls. I wish I could tell who the superior carrier is from this site. It would help me decide where to purchase my new serivice plan.

You would think that living out toward Vail would affect coverage but we get great voice and data coverage. Verizon just needs to take a look at their pricing because it is too expensive for the average American household budget. We will probably switch once Sprint finishes their build-out in Tucson with LTE. Verizon has no clue what's coming.

Good reception in our area. We added a femtocell to improve the signal in our house and to gain signal for the security system. This was a good idea, as our security system installer was on AT&T and couldn't get a signal in the house. He told us Verizon is the only provider that has a strong signal in our area to support a wireless connection on their security systems.

Everyone raves about Verizon and I was willing to take on the extra expense after so many dropped calls using sprint. Initially when I started with Verizon a year ago, it was good. However, approximately, 4 months ago, I started loosing signal strength in my home. I had to go outside in order to dial out. I called customer service and they said they would look into ti. It was supposed to take 5 days. After 10 days I called them back. and had to go through the same troubleshooting as the first call even though I had a ticket number. GrrRR! THE INIAL REPRESENTATIVE TOLD ME I WOULD HAVE TO PAY for a signal extender which would give me a range of 15 feet in my house ($250). Still not giving e a reason why I had service for 9 mos and now none. When I went off on her, she finally put me through to tech support. Bottom line: they were using AT&T towers when I signed up and quit using them when my service stopped. Now they are letting me out of my contract, if the extender does no work. Should have gone with AT&T to begi with.

I always have reception and never drop any calls but the signal is weak and the data speeds are usually slow even when I'm on the LTE network. Our second line has an iPhone on it and reception is worse.

Not only is the reception bad, no one at Sprint sticks to anything they say. I, too, was told if I signed up for another line for 30 days my son could get a deal on his "free upgrade" phone. Suffice it to say, 9 months later I'm still paying $32 / mo. for a 5th line I never use and Sprint says, "We don't need your business." 20 years I've fought them and I'm just exhausted. I don't care how much it costs to buy out my contract as long as I can avoid these inane phone calls to Customer Dis-service!

I don't know what everyone is talking about with dropped calls. Never had one yet. Verizon is the best, hands down. I do wish it were not so expensive. Family of 4 paying almost $250 a month. Ouch! Unlike Geiko, with Verizon you do "get what you pay for".

Our reception on the ATT network is 3-4 bars in our home at all times. But we have just now started to receive excessive data charges (1 GB extra each 2 days, ridiculous) after normal billings for some years.

Have never had a problem with reception, clarity, dropped calls. Down to Green Valley, through Oro Valley, and up to Phoenix. It is expensive, and I was thinking of switching,,but after reading reviews here I am not going anywhere!

In Europe this summer, it was fantastic to have data, texting and 20 cpm calling between our 5 phones. Goodbye roaming! I would love to stick with T-Mobile. Sadly, coverage is very spotty at home in Oro Valley, with dropped calls and, worse, voice messages that arrive one week late! Wifi calling helps a little inside the house, but reception is often garbled. We switched from Verizon, which worked fine, and will be switching back very soon.
