Switched over to AT&T from T-Mobile since T-Mobile had reception problems. AT&T worked fine for a while and then we had very poor or no reception at all in the last 4 months. AT&T didn't want to rectify the problem despite multiple complaints. Moved to Sprint and its great.

AT&T is just like the rest -- do little, keep folks locked in contracts so they can afford their phones, and tell them whatever to get rid of them as quickly as possibly when they complain. Why are we paying these outrages rates for this horrible service? Please -- bring on an app or new service that can battle these lousy behemoths. Check out Giggle.com using fiber optics -- first store in Monrovia, CA.

1 or 0 bars. No one can hear me then call drops consistently. No good reception even outside.

Never had any proble with Verizon in my area. I'm thinking about switch to AT&T since Verizon is too expensive. Anyone with AT&T in this area?

I just moved to this area and AT&T reception is pathetic. Many dropped calls and my voice sounds broken and unclear on the other end. Changed the phone and still the same issue. Called AT&T to get a reception booster but they told me that I have to pay for it. I surprises me that with the amount they charge they cannot add more cell sites and upgrade their system.

In Santa Clara I get dropped calls. At my home in kitchen the signal just dies. Else people who call me can't hear me. Calls drop. I am not able to dial out. Sprint used to be OK way back actually. Now I'm dumping Sprint, because when you look for a new job you can't find a new job with Sprint, since you can't talk to anyone. I've had all big 4 in the past and Verizon with AT&T were the best. $140 / month for Verizon or $90 / month for AT&T? That is the question.

Tall buildings in the area are preventing good reception in this area. More and more dense clusters of apartments in the area must have the same issue.

Drop calls partway down the street. At home have a router that was supposed to help. Sprint promised better service once their towers were upgraded but still drop calls and need router to connect at home. Drop calls on commutefrom Campbell to Redwood City. So I basically pay $90 / mo. for nothing.

ATT's voice coverage is spotty - and unless I have it in a certain position, I get dropped calls. 3G is almost non existent - even outside in the Bay Area, the 3 coverage is bad.

Consistently under 1mbps for download and upload speed. I've been running speed tests since March. I get 75mbps around Stockton, CA, and 68mbps in Los Angeles, CA, so it is not my phone. Service use to be great but now horrendous. Pretty pathetic for Silicon Valley. Paying 100% for less than 5% of service.

Only used voice, but at least I got 3 or 4 bars and didn't drop the connection. So far so good.

I had Nextel which eventually turned into sprint. At the beginning ( about 3-4 years ago it was good), now I'm always on "extended network" with 1-0 bars, forget about watching a YouTube video and sometimes I need to make 4-5 calls to finish a conversation with a customer( I own a plumbing business). They keep saying "we are improving our towers, in two weeks everything will be back to normal". I've been hearing that for months now. It sounds like a company that is preparing to shut down and they are trying to stretch their short life for as long as possible, so when the are bought out, they can show they have thousands of clients and get more for their downhill going company. My contract ends the 28th of this month and I'm switching to verizon.

Terrible! Calls are always dropped after only a few seconds. And I cannot hear what the other person says - I can hear them for 1 second then followed by 4 seconds of silence. Sometime it's impossible to call out too. So frustrating! The problem is same inside my apartment or outside in the middle of the street.

ATT&T coverage is terrible to non-existent. It's often impossible to make a usable phone connection. I'm have to switch carriers.

Verizon coverage works really well anywhere I've been in the San Jose area (usually constant 4 bars and fast download speeds), as long as I'm at least a mile north of Willow Glen. Unfortunately, I live in Willow Glen and get maybe 1 bar at best and rarely get a consistent data link, even when I'm outside.

The Sprint coverage maps for my area all say best all green, the actual is yes spotty voice coverage, spotty 3g and not 4 g even though the maps say best or great coverage. So this means Sprint is legally running a scam on all of us. All Sprint users complain but stays becuase the others Verizon and AT&T or most expensive. Sprint users are cheap or trapped in a contract. Yes me too cheap. So when Sprint raises prices on worst coverage we get stuck cuz Verizon and AT&T will raise prices as they have the undoubtedly best coverage everywhere. I know I used to use ATT and Verizon when my employers paid for my phones. Now that I pay for the phone I went with the cheapest solution. Oh well Sprint sucks everyone knows it and they are allowed to lie about the covererge. I suggest you pay more for better coverage at Verizon and ATT! Or get cheap monthly rates with worst covergage with Sprint. Theres is a reason why Sprint is cheap, poorly run company, poor services, low prices... .

The worst Carrier I have had to date. constant 1-2 bar 3g with occasional 4LTE. My house has constant dropped call and my work its constant 1-2 3gbars... .Sprint said they would be upgrading 4lte all over my area by Feb... .BS its June and my service is still a joke.
