3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Unm | Central Girard, Albuquerque, NM 87106 |

I can't compare to other services, Cricket is cheaper than other services, but I do get dropped calls, I do have dead zones in certain areas in Albuquerque in places where everyone else with different services have many bars. frustrating because this includes work place. There are also places that I have more bars than other people with different services. At times, my texts don't go through and I don't receive others and phone doesn't tell me anything. And data is slower than other people with other services. Because of price and because AT&T it is tempting to keep cricket. But because of needing phone service at work place or the drop calls come at wrong times and texting. I'm going to try out Verizon prepaid and than compare.

My Sprint service is by far the worst it has ever been. For the past ten months they would tell me to wait for the tower upgrades but they nothing has gotten better. My calls get dropped numerous times a day and I have to stand in certain parts of my home to keep decent service. Even though my calls have been dropped several times while talking to the Sprint Technical Support technician, they refuse to let me out of my contract and offer me a $10 credit. I am fed up and feel trapped by sprint.

Horrible. I was suckered into joining a family plan by Sprint. (My family is wonderful) Sprint has been a frustrating experience with no reception. Looking now to get out of this mess.

Moved to ABQ from So CA last month. From the day I got into ABQ, I've had problems with internet connections. Internet connection was spotting at best throughout the city. Unable to use navigation apps consistently, which I have to depend on. I have contacted Sprint almost on a daily basis. Last talked to Jackie Supervisor for Accounts. She was rude and condescending. I am requesting waiver of early termination fees as Sprint service here in ABQ is poor in regards to data. I need a service which will provide consistent access to internet. I have been with Sprint since 2010 in So CA. Never had a problem with service nor a reason to contact customer service. Now that I need to relay on internet access, I've received unreliable service and poor customer service.

I had Sprint for 2 and half years and it was the worst service ever! Shoot I'm pretty sure Cricket is better than them. Anyways, I switched over to T-Mobile and I am beyond satisfied with their service. I have 4g lte everywhere I go and their data speeds are fast. Sprint is a joke because back in 2012, I was told lte was going to be out soon and not once have I gotten lte. My calls kept on dropping, texts didn't go through at times, and I couldn't watch Youtube videos or load a web page. I recommend T-Mobile because they are basically the same price as Sprint but they actually have a network that works great! Thank you Tim Tebow for influencing me to switch!

After looking at the Sprint coverage map for Albuquerque Westside, I can see why the service is so bad--there are only two towers covering Cottonwood Mall and south to I-40. Also, there are rumors going around about Sprint upgrading their ABQ service to LTE, but that is not in the forseeable future. Most of what ABQ is seeing now is 3G 'equipment upgrades' which probably equates to installing the newer equipment from the LTE upgrades in other states to ABQ. If you decide to purchase a VM phone or Sprint service, and live on West-side, make sure you keep your 30 day return receipt and note phone and data reliability. My experience has been marginal to bad, but I already spent over $1,000 for three phones, which apparently can't be switched to any other service--even though I paid for them. Arrgh.

Switched from Verizon because of plan cost and data limitations to Virgin Mobile, about two years ago. Initially, VM signal at my house was marginal, but useable. The low signal caused the phone battery to last only a day. When I have been out of town, in Phoenix or San Francisco, the Sprint network there is great, and the phone battery lasts two to three days. In the last few months, phone coverage on the West side has gotten substantially worse. There are times when phone just won't work from my house at all. The phone might show 3 or 4 bars, but it won't connect a call. Not sure what is going on. Hopefully, Sprint is in the process of upgrading towers to LTE, which is the rumor. Not going to stick with VM, which has a 'reasonable' cost for 300 minutes talk, and unlimited text and data for $30 / mo, much longer if service doesn't get better.

T-Mobile is the WORST! I tried calling 911 three times to report a dangerous situation on the interstate. I had 4 bars and the first 2 calls to 911 were dropped. I called T-Mobile to file a complaint and find out what was wrong and they were useless. I finally had to file a complaint with the FCC. That says it all!

Switched from Verizon to Sprint kinda of a downgrade but overall my bill is lower, I HAVE TRULY UNLIMTED DATA!😄3G is ok in ABQ not gonna say its perfect but its great, some dropped calls and text issues but in general I see people having issues with Sprint I really dont see how they can be???? I really have to say Sprint is much brighter than expected.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Coors and Delany, Albuquerque, NM 87121 |

I have to say Sprint has improved on cell coverage dropped calls are decressing and call quality improving data is intermitent ran several speed tests around ABQ some parts of ABq get 33kbps but in my area and work area I'm getting 1.45mbps down.89 mbps u. And work area near montgomery and wyoming I'm getting 2.89 to 3.56 mbps down and 1.89 mbps up which is a.HUGE improvment on 3G data been informed ABQ should see LTE on the east side of the river by mid febuaray to Mid March and the rest of the city and metro area will follow by the Sprint store on coors near i40. Due to this 4g lte upgrade of installing new network vision towers and upgrading and installing new equipment on legacy towers which causes 3g disruption, dropped calls and poor call quality Sprint is giving me and other people on Sprint compesation by crediting my bill 25 dollars which makes my monthly amount lower. Bill has never changed n I've had a 8 / 10 experience with sprint. Will suggest them to anyone just dont get with Verizon they are a nightmare from hell.
