I guess when it comes to calls I'm just lucky after reading all the other reviews but I can say that any 4 G / L T E is nearly none existent and as they can lie through their teeth in advertisements and get away with it. Great legal system we have, if you can buy it!

Phone virtually never has even one bar in my apartment. Can't text or call at home. Going to have to switch.

My mobile / smart phone coverage is through Sprint (unlimited $98 @ month)... I have an AT&T Wi-Fi / TV at home because I live in a dead zone... ($48 @ month)... Berkeley, Ca... go figure... this coverage drops off when I'm in my back yard... a very small property... When I am out and about my phone drops off unless I am by a business that has free Wi-Fi. I keep trying to find cheaper service... all the sales people do is shrug their shoulders and say... I have a great deal...

On T-Mobile near my window with zero bars. If I wave my phone around this review might get thru. Seriously atrocious. Spent 30 mins (no exaggeration) logging into my utility site to check a bill.

My phone which works okay elsewhere in Oakland and East Bay has never worked in my ground floor apartment in Alameda since I moved in spring 2015. My tablet which is on the same plan works occassionally in the apartment.

Works great outside, but not in the building. Can't get to usual email / apps that I wanted to go, lags when I make a phone calls and hangs up sometimes. I get massive late texts when I go outside and when I text somebody, it's either they got it late and didn't go through. Why would I spend over $100 / month for this whack reception? I need to switch carrier.

Tmobile signal is poor in this part of the oakland hills. I must resort to WiFi calling at home, but then I cannot send or receive MMS messages (on Samsung Galaxy 5). I often have problems receiving multiple duplicates of SMS messages.

AT&T coverage in Kensington was bad a few years ago, improved, and dropped back to just about unacceptable a couple of months ago. This is ridiculous.

Have had TMo for about 2 years now. Always have good service - way better than the AT&T service I have for my work phone and iPad. Awesome customer service as well. I've recommended TMo to several friends / colleagues who have AT&T or Sprint and all have told me what an improvement TMo has been. Also, TMo works best on Bart underground.
