This is my (temporary) 3rd phone while I decide to drop Sprint (Virgin Mobile using a Kyocera Rise) or not, and it is tempting me to switch to AT&T. My wife has T-Mobile, also reported below, similarly good up here. You can get an idea of the different carriers by reading my reviews today. Despite this ATT phone being a $10 cheap, flimsy phone, it has the clearest, strongest signal and distorts the least during calls -- no matter whether it shows any bars or not, indoors or outdoors, whatever. AT&T service is amazing, and I am a fool for ever having trusted Sprint's marketing ploys. Last week, upon reporting signal reception problems, Sprint told me "We're upgrading our towers" and "paying customers are given reception priority over pre-paid customers by the signal routing computers in the towers". Then they tried to sell us a very expensive family plan. I don't think so. I dearly love my Virgin Mobile smartphone but it looks like it may be going on eBay. Necessities first.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint / Virgin reception is tricky in our home. This is my phone; my wife has T-Mobile (I just reported her results earlier). I have found a spot in the hallway / bathroom where I get great reception so I leave the phone there and use Bluetooth. Calls will drop or be denied if we set the Android phone down on the dinner table or office desk. It's probably something in our house or yard that interferes but other people should be warned that these Sprint phones need to be in special spots to get good reception, unlike my T-Mobile and my new AT&T $10 cheapie which may replace Sprint despite my love of Android. If you can't get the important calls, to Heck with the fancy features.Was this review helpful to you?
2-3 bars at any time. Calls always go through. They can stutter or distort either inside or outside the home, but we almost never lose a call. Using a cheap Samsung flip phone.Was this review helpful to you?

I find AT&T reception absolutely nonexistent on the streets above Glenoaks or even San Fernando... once you get further southwest, it improves.Was this review helpful to you?
No signal or bars in the house. One bar outside the house. Need to go to Ventura blvd to get signal. Receive messages and voice mail 2-3 hrs later.Was this review helpful to you?
no reception in the foothills or in my house have to go outside down the street so I get a signalWas this review helpful to you?
50% of the time I have 1 bar, and 50% I have 0 bars- emergency calls only. Class action suit awaits AT&T for not delivering services paid for. Never had any problems here with Verizon. Will pay the penalty $$ and switch back. At&T coverage map is a lie- confirmed by their CSR.Was this review helpful to you?
