I just to moved here and upon arrival have only had 2-3 bars exclusively, seems like no matter where I am in Tucson my service is trash. Is there a better provider here?Was this review helpful to you?
Have lived here nearly four years. Verizon was good for first two years, but has slowly been deteriorating to the point that it's very hard to make a call from our home at any time. Occasionally works from outside the house or when walking around inside to find a spot with some service but overall Verizon is lousy now! Have heard rumors that Verizon was going to build a new tower as the existing one can't handle the traffic but so far no new tower. This is why we still have land line service and now any call that is important we make over land line and have started to tell family to only call our land line number. In the past we've left voice messages using Cell phone asking for a call back and found it wasn't happening not realizing that the other party was not getting the message or couldn't understand the message due to poor Verizon service. Now we know and always use land line for important calls.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint DATA SUCKS in Tucson. It's spotty. I use wifi whenever possible.Was this review helpful to you?
Signal seems to have gotten worse in the last 18 months to the point it is barely is usable unless there is some type of WiFi connection to tie into in the area. As others mentioned they have done well at ignoring the complaints, saying its the phones, buildings etc etc.Was this review helpful to you?
I can get a good signal when I'm in town but out here past Saguaro West it is intermittent at best.Was this review helpful to you?

I've tested Verizon and determined that it has excellent service on 6th Ave and 36th St.near Downtown Tucson. I've had T-Mobile, Metro PCS and Sprint. These networks are terrible in this side of town. Verizon provides me satisfactory high speed data and call reception. I have been on their prepaid network for the past 4 Months and it's been wow excellent. I use 40 Gigs of high speed data per month.Was this review helpful to you?
8 yrs ago we went with TMobile. Had great service for 5 yrs. Then 3 yrs ago,, month by mont service became worse. Now, after getting and upgrading everything, As recommended, WE HAVE ALMOST ZERO SERVICE. I was in an accident over 2 weeks ago and could not get through to my husband who was here at home! I have offered, multiple times, for T-Mobile to put a Cell Tower out here on our unused property.. But Oh No! Theses Cell carries KNOW they have people that live out here by the short hairs and none of the carriers Care! Yet we're expected to pay the high mobile prices month in and month out! South West Tucson has grown in leaps and bounds but none of the carriers will do anything for their consumers! It's a bunch of Crap! It's a Consumer's Nightmare when a emergency happens!Was this review helpful to you?
Wife's phone on Verizon had terrible call quality... Dropped calls... Inaudible... . Turned off HD voice call feature on LG phone and now calls are perfect... Wasn't Verizon problem as first thought.Was this review helpful to you?
Never have had a problem with reception or dropped calls. We pay a little more for Verizon but we get great coverage and great customer service. (Other than them deleting all of my rewards points in November and getting a new rewards plan that will prob also never pan out to any actual reward like the last one)Was this review helpful to you?
