I'm from sacramento and I come to fresno often. Sometime I get very good signal and some time I get 0 to 2 bars. I don't think its my phone, I think it have to do with the cell tower shutting down inthis area, because some days I get full bars and 4g network. Overall, T-Mobile is a good provider..Was this review helpful to you?
For the past two weeks I have struggled to maintain internet and data connectivity on my phone which runs on the Sprint network. I get spotty, intermittent, and sometimes no connection. Have reported the problem to Sprint, and have even received a replacement phone. Yet the problem continues. At this point I am pretty much paying for a service that does not seem to exist. At my wits ends as to what I can do.Was this review helpful to you?
I have Virgin Mobile which runs on Sprint. I've had them for about 3-4 years now. The signal is strong everywhere in Fresno. My only complaint is that the 3G on my iphone didn't work for like 2 weeks and customer service doesn't know what to do besides read off their "list." I've never had a dropped call besides when talking to customer service (I think they hung up on me).Was this review helpful to you?
Switched from Sprint, which was sufficient for voice / text, but data was painfully slow at times. On Verizon, my bill is OUTRAGEOUS, but data.is fast and have had no real service related issues, recently. 4G coverage around town is fairly solid. 3G is plentiful and fast enough. I'll manually set my phone to 3G to conserve battery. Have traveled as far north as Stockton and as far south as LA Area and service has been consistent and reliable. I'm in plain sight of a tower and downloads of 30Mbps aren't uncommon. :)Was this review helpful to you?
Had an iPhone 4 hand me down and I have weak signal and dropped calls in fresno where I am visiting my mom. Using T-Mobile for years now, this never happened til now. Can I signal a relay tower or satilite to improve signal?Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is terrible all around! I have to turn off my 3G when I'm not using my phone so my battery won't run out from my phone trying really hard to pick up signal. With only one tower in Fresno, Sprint needs to step it up and build a couple more in this town! Not to mention the total absence of 4G!Was this review helpful to you?
Sad to say that reception continues to get worse. I noticed the other reviews were quite old so thought I should chime in. "call dismissed" notice shows up on my phone frequently after a call is dropped. Many callers want me to try them back later when I can get a better signal. This is getting progressively worse. Talked to tech support, they said they found an issue with the switch I was connecting to. I guess it cannot be repaired as nothing is better 6 weeks later.Was this review helpful to you?
With AT&T, there is a cell phone tower literally right next to me, so I always get good clarity.Was this review helpful to you?
Will never loose my landline. When at home, every call drops after 30 seconds. Have a tower less than 300 yards away, trying to find who the carrier is. I even lose calls standing outside in central Fresno.Was this review helpful to you?
I am with Virgin Mobie which uses Sprints network. Virgin Mobile is a month to month no-contract service provider with decent to high-end android phones and even the iPhone with the cheapest monthly plans as low as $30 / mo. As far as service goes I have not had a problem with dropped calls using Spints 3g service throughout my area and all of the California area while traveling, while making phone calls, and using the Google maps GPS. Note: Boost Mobile no contract phones also uses Sprints network with unlimited everything for $40 / mo after shrinkage.Was this review helpful to you?
