Sprint works well in the general Oakland area and freeways but not Oakland hills where we live. No signal uphill from Hwy. 13 to Skyline, had to get the additional home antenna booster just to use the phone in our house. Has issues with data, will lag vm msgs and have to keep re-logging in to see email. Ready to switch.

I used to get service, but them cracked my screen and filed a claim.Since receiving my new (refurbished) phone, I can't call people cause they can't hear me. I can hear them fine, but they tell me I sound like I'm in a box, great to know, and it's pretty consistent, meaning my home is now my phone dead zone, Metro PCS towers I'm told are coming down and if you have metro service you have till the end of 2014 to switch over to T-Mobile, or a new service provider.

UNBELIEVABLE. sitting here in the tech center of the country and I can't make a f*ing phone call?!?! i curse the day I switched from AT&T to Sprint. I only switched because I eventually wanted to use Ting and because of the "UNLIMITED DATA" HAHAHAHAHA well, what use is data if you get no data anywhere (you have to use wifi most of the time). i've been ABSOLUTELY stranded when i've left home expecting to be able to check info mobile, then was unable to make appointments on time because my phone absolutely refused to give up the info. i've started writing everything down again, just in case... so then, why am I paying to use paper and pen? It does work in many places, and luckily some places I frequent, but good luck in oakland anywhere. I can't make phone calls from my home!... so for that I give it no stars. no calls, no stars. f*ck you sprint.

We have no reception in our home. And even outside, the phones often don't ring even though people call us and text's come in hours after sent and people sometimes do not get my texts!

No ability to txt to / from or receive or make calls for the past 3 days. Sprint can only tell me they are upgrading the towers and should be done yesterday, no... maybe today... or maybe in the next 72 hours. Horrible service and worst customer service... very scripted..called 3 times already... they can't tell me a thing!

Little to no reception here. Rather disappointing seeing that this is a large metropolitan area.

People call me and my phone does not ring; I try calling others and can't get thru. I might as well not have a phone at all. I upgraded my phone with Sprint, thinking maybe it was a hardware issue, but the new phone had just as much trouble. Will probably break my contract it is so terrible.

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?).
