For years I used a TracFone and never had a dropped call. Ever since I upgraded to a Galaxy3 through Virgin Mobile I can't have a phone call without being dis connected. Pretty sure they use Sprints towers. I have no problems with internet connections..just constant dropped phone calls. Love the phone..hate the dropped calls.

I have been with T-Mobile for about 12 years and after about 6 months of moving into our new house our reception went from not great to horrible. I get one or two bars. Trying to use the internet is a joke. I have to sit in one room to get any kind of reception in my house. I immediately called when the reception got worse and T-Mobile refused to admit that something had changed although there were several other "open ticket" complaints. The rep then tacked my complaint onto another persons ticket. Nothing ever changed. They sent me two signal boosters that didn't do anything. Sometimes the signal booster shows it's not even picking up a signal. Every time I call they say "you should be getting excellent coverage". And if these guys tell me to turn my phone off and on or pull out the battery one more time I'm gonna loose it!

Purchased 5s one month ago. Reception dropped to 1X. Lte reception virtually impossible to receive. Got a $15 discount for one month. Little consolation for such poor continuous Sprint service.

Do not go with Sprint. Little to no reception, waste of time and money.

Verizon used to be a good carrier, but something has changed. Lately I'm having problems just connecting to cell tours and my phone often says it's roaming even though it shouldn't. When I do connect, data speeds are much less than they were a year ago and latency and error rates are sometimes high. I pay way to much for such horrible service.

No data connectivity 95% of the time. If you live or work in this or surrounding areas, stay away from Sprint!

I moved to the area two years ago and initially the reception was fine until last year. Now I get intermittent calls (incoming / outgoing) when I'm on the 3rd floor of my home. I have to go down to the 1st floor to make a call but most of the time the chances of the reception getting lost within a few minutes of the call are 95%. Verizon hasn't been very helpful, they don't seem to want to help as Sprint did for their customers who lived in the same complex. They promote 4g and know that canyons tend to have spotty reception yet have not done anything to resolve it. Customers shouldn't have to invest additional money for a network extender.

Switched to T-Mobile from Verizon. Reception with Verizon in this area was amazing, period. However, I switched for reasons that did *not* have to do with reception. I knew reception levels were going to suffer, and I was right, but it's not "that" bad, honestly. I live right in the middle of a 3-story apartment complex where it's admittedly difficult for any cell signal to penetrate. While on Verizon I was able to get an LTE signal anywhere in the house, with T-Mobile I am only able to get HSPA / HSPA+. And that's by the window / balcony; if I'm deeper in the house, I usually can't even hold a signal (voice or data). Once I leave the apartment complex, my signal jumps to full-strength LTE almost immediately, and generally stays there unless I go deep within another building. Bottom line: it's not perfect reception, but given the cost savings (and other benefits that I won't go into, here) over Verizon, I'm absolutely satisfied with it. Maybe over time, technology will improve that will allow their signals to better penetrate buildings.
