How much of a gap in s there between the 1st (VZW), and 2nd (AT&T) largest wireless carriers with the 3rd (Sprint) largest carrier? F'N H-U-G-E! I've used AT&T and VZW service (voice / data) for the past 16+ years and never has their service been as horrendous as Sprint! I got suckered into Sprint's low monthly unlimited voice and data plans at the end of 2013. When I cancelled my VZW service, the VZW rep said, sorry, there's nothing I can do to match Sprint's rates, but be forewarned that droves and droves of Sprint customers are leaving to sign up with VZW because of their terrible coverage and service. Being on Sprint for a year now, I can easily say that the VZW rep was right and that I HATE SPRINT SERVICE! Unlimited voice and data means nothing! What you get is UNLIMITED crap! Data dependent apps don't work (even when LTE signal indicator shows 3 bars on iPhone) so you wait, and wait, and wait, until you suck it up and put your useless smart device away because there is no data connection. Trying to use my device on Bart is a joke. There are so many dead spots on 101 and 280 that my voice calls drop every 4-5 miles all along San Francisco and the Peninsula. I just drove to and from LA on I-5 and there were SEVERAL spans of 50-60 miles on I-5 that had absolutely NO COVERAGE! I was able to use my navigation, voice service, and text a total of 30-40 mins total on my drive from SF to LA. WTF?! Useless 4G voice and data is what you pay for. YOU WILL REGRET SIGNING UP WITH SPRINT and be just as HATEFUL as I am towards the company. Their customer service is just as horrible! Good luck trying to get a straight answer from any of their call centers (state side or overseas).

I've be customer with Sprint over 20 years and stock holder. The New CEO should get fired with his half price cut promotion offer to current Verizon and ATT customers transfer to Sprint. Instead He should fix Sprint network prevent their existing customer moving out to other carriers. I'm serious thinking change to other network where no matter how cheap Sprint is that I cannot get my cell phone services and keep dropping calls. They should refund me last few monthly fees. FIRED THIS CEO

Frequent dropped calls, poor reception. I'm home and a lot of the time I have zero bars. Unlimited internet is a joke, can't even use it. Can browse the Internet and check emails ok, but streaming videos rarely works; Netflix works sometimes when I turn airplane mode on and off.

Have always had dropped calls when on Haight bus near Buchanan, but now I'm having bad reception at home in Hayes Valley - few bars, poor call signal, dropped calls. Maybe a tower is down?

Used to use iPhone with AT&T 4G LTE and it works perfect in most areas of the city - Way better than T-Mobile that many of my friends have.

Outdoor coverage within the vicinity is great. Indoor the signal is useable. I am pleased with the reception.

Had Sprint for 15 years and never really had reception problems until they switched to the LTE network. My wife and I have unlimited data and can barely use it in the City. Maps are slow if you can get them to work at all. Rarely get reliable email. About half the time we can't use online services to check bus times. Twitter barely ever loads. If I'm standing side by side with two phones from other providers I will always be the last to load anything. And it's effing expensive! Waiting out our current contract then we're done. Don't get Sprint service if you live in the City.

Bad voice connection in our own backyard, as well as front room. Even worse is the internet which cuts out multiple times per hour. 9 technicians to the house in 2 years. 9 new modems. Would never go with this company again.

Worst customer service I've ever experienced in my entire life, which is especially wonderful when dropped calls, inexplicable data drainage, and texting delays are standard and to be expected. What am I paying for again???

Went there to buy phone,and these jerks added a home phone service on my plan,i tried to return phone and they charged me 35$ restocking fee plus 35$ fee on the hm phone service..well these jerks told me that the refund that was suppose to be returned to me on my card cannot be accepted for restock fee,so I had to pay out of pocket,and with all said and dont I could not even return the phone.anyone who goes with Sprint better rethink there network sucks,there are alot better ones out there.ALSO TO ADD<<<< THERE CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM A SCALE OF 0 TO 10 I WOULD RATE THEM A 0 BECAUSE CUSTOMERS ALWAYS COMES FIRST NOT THEM.

I have had Sprint for 14 years with no problems, but suddenly this summer cannot use the phone on the first floor of my house and almost never get 5 bar reception in San Francisco. What has happened? Did they lose a tower?

I've had Sprint for 16 years. Reception has been excellent until the last 6 months or so. Now, service is horrible. I keep getting dropped calls and call failures and calls that won't even connect. I've called Sprint on this 5 times in the last 3 months. It's like everyone has said, they're working on upgrading the towers. It's frustrating. The tower I use is only 2 blocks away at Fell and Laguna. They, why is service so bad?

I have lost job interviews due to not having any cell reception at all. Not even bad, because that would give the perception that you can send texts or a call. Once I leave my area I am bombarding with 10 new messages / missed calls. I went to the store, they knowingly tell me service is bad yet they charge me the same amount where others actually can use there services. I will be switching to Verizon due to their lack of coverage and the lack of ability to facilitate the issue - I.E. "you can buy a microcell for 200" ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! how about you give me the microcell as I have been a customer for 10 years and dishing out cash to you. But no, "we cant do that, even though you pay for a service we cant provide" Overall HORRIBLE experience

Poorest reception in this area results in continually dropped calls, inability to initiate a call. Constant roaming results in drained charge within three (3) hours; requires phone to be connected to charger while at work.

Cannot send or receive calls, cannot send or receive text messages. Phone will show one or two bars and "3G " or Edge (the little circle. This has already placed me in a difficult situation, cannot imagine if it was an emergency. FYI... AT&T cellular signal works perfectly... go figure.

3G data reception around Church and 30th as well as Church and 24th has been terrible for years. Underground in BART 3G reception is good between 16th and Mission and Glen Park. Along the Market St.corridor, however, 3G can be nonexistent if there are any crowds at all at the stations and in the trains; often I lose 3G entirely there. Call Sprint to talk about this and they say they're working on fixing it. They have been saying that for years. I'm done with them.
