Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Coors and Paseo Del Norte, Albuquerque, NM 87120 |

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.

I've been with Cricket for about 8 years. When I first started with them, they were the only cell phone carrier that offered unlimited talk time. When smart phones came out, they added unlimited text and data, no contract required. I don't travel around the city as much as I once did, but two of my friends stop by, one has Verizon and the other has Sprint and I am frequently he only one with any bars. The other big attraction is that my bill is lower than either one of theirs. My friends both plan to change when their contracts are finished.

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.

Verizon

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | NM 313 and 550, Bernalillo, NM 87004 |

Rating says it all Verizon is the worst carrier there 4g lte is not even accurate. Looking into Sprint and tmobile. Verizon just is it for the money. They really dont care about there customers. All they ever do is refresh your phone. Hell 4g lte in abq so slow its like 4mbps I read T-Mobile runs 10_15mbps in abq.

I regret leaving Sprint for verizon, I'm getting frequent dropped calls, texts dont go through, and 4g lte is no where to be found near bernalillo, my bill has gone up, I have roaming charges and they wont credit or fix my bill, they said 4g lte will be also in gallup and roswell where I travel I go through dead zones from clines corners to roswell along 285 and i40 from abq to gallup service is spotty. I know one things for sure Verizon DOES NOT HAVE UNLIMTED DATA!seriously 8gb a month and throttle speeds thats not unlimted. Come tax returns porting back to Sprint and leaving Verizon behind! Wont suggest Verizon to anyone! Get Sprint, AT&T or Tmobile.

Our Company recently dropped Sprint. We had over 50 phones that were used throughout NM. The coverage area was horrible! We switched to Verizon and I am happy to say that we have not had any issues and the coverage is great! Unfortunately, my family is still on a Sprint plan due to our contracts. We have been promised by Sprint that changes are coming. So far no changes... ... In fact, I am pretty sure that the coverage is getting worse! Sprint recently shipped us an Airave which helps at our house. As soon as we leave the house, its painful... . Hopefully Sprint picks it up soon. I cannot believe that anyone would support Sprint on this Forum!

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Cottonwood Mall Area, Albuquerque, NM 87114 |

My service for the last 2 years has been much worse than people I know with other carriers. 2 to 3 bars usually right in town and sometimes 1x. Sprint has told me twice that 4G LTE service would be active here in the ABQ Metro area in a few weeks but that time has come and gone. Pretyy dissatisfied with the cellulasr service in Albuquerque, NM.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Coors Blvd. | Montano Rd., Albuquerque, NM 87120 |

Great coverage anywhere inside of Albuquerque! And since they've added 4G LTE to the metro area, my data speeds are phenomenal! I honestly cannot believe anyone else would stay on a contract with a carrier that charges them up the wazoo for the same, if not worse, coverage than what I get, AND with unlimited unthrottled data!

Extremely dissatisfied with Sprint. Connection is slow or non-existent. Dropped calls on a daily basis. Tells me I'm "roaming" when I'm still within city limits of Albuquerque or Rio Rancho. WTF?
