No reception and bot even 3G capable at a God damn INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. Pathetic, and its the same way at SFO! Way to go Sprint. Switching as soon as my contract is up.

Mastick Senior Center, you can see the Cell tower on the corner of the parking lot. Roughly 25-30ft high, black with a transformer. If you can see this tower you will be getting anywhere from 14mbps to 30mbps. 4GLTE service. This upgrade was done roughly in June / July.

I range between zero and two bars. If I walk from the back of the house to the living room I often get a signal for a voice mail that was sent a half hour earlier. AT&T reception is just awful and I can't wait for the timing in my faimly plan to allow me to look for another provider. Now I'm wondering what a microcell entails (another commenter got one for free?).

Constant, predictable dropped calls and frustrating bouts of "hello? can you hear me? hello, are you there?" Like nothing else. Absolutely frustrating. Happens all over the neighborhood, inside the house, outside the house, doesn't matter. Friends and neighbors report the same. Bay Area alarm, which has cell signal strength testing equipment, couldn't install service at my location because the cell service was too weak. AT&T's coverage map depicts this neighborhood as "best" coverage. I consider this FRAUD.

Something has happened to Sprint - used to be Terrible Internet but decent phone calls. Now it's all bad. Every call is dropped on Park St. For a laugh- go to the Sprint store- all the demo phones are on wifi. There is no Internet available In their own store.

In the past two months service has plummeted and went into the Sprint store and they said just call for an airave that will boost signal strength. Did this and was on the phone for 41 minutes, 15 of it on hold. In the end they said I have to pay 150 add'l plus monthly service fees to get this. They blamed the poor service on two cell towers being down and in repair as we speak. Yeah of course they would say this. SPRINT SUCKS

In the last year my reception has declined tremendously. It used to be only one room in my home that I could not use my iphone. Gradually it has gotten so bad that I need to stand at my street facing living room window to talk. Even if I shift my position slightly I am told I can no longer be heard ! What is going on???

No problems at all. ATT is horrible in this area.

The only time I have service is when I'm on my bed, upstairs, with my arm hanging out the window. It's ridiculous! I cannot call out or get calls / texts in. I have to leave my house in order to communicate. I'm totally frustrated.

I'm on my second, brand new Galaxy S4 and I get between 0.1 - and 1.5 mbps in downtown San Francisco, the supposed tech capitol of the world. Give me a break! I went to the retail store on Pine St.to run a speed test on a floor model so I could determine if it was my phone or if it was the signal and the employees told me that it wasn't worth my walk there as they have a repeater in the store because the 4G is so bad. That was all the information I needed. I'm bummed out I sent my orgiginal S4 back and wasted time setting up a new phone. I agree with the other poster's, this is unacceptable for the price. Too bad I am locked into a contract. Sometimes my "4G" is slower than old school dial up... sweet Big Red. Haven't I bent over enough for you? At very least your signal could be usable if your going to screw us in every other way (no more unlimited, $30 upgrade fee on top of phone cost, refurbished phones to replace factory faulty products, etc... )
