4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | S 11th St. | 280, San Jose, CA 95112 |

I get great reception even in my basement. Heavy use of internet / data without problems. I travel through out the county for work and have very rarely had any issues with dropped calls or inability to access data. I rely heavly on maps in my phone and find they are always available when needed. Occasionly loose service in the Santa Cruz Mts and backroads in south Santa Clara county.

Sprint signal in south Fremont has been atrocious for last 2 months. What's up with that? Even simple text messages won't go through lately.I'm tired of seeing red triangles on the screen. Can I use that as a reason to get out of my family contract?

Phone never rings unless it is held near a front window. Battery only lasts approx 2-3 hrs because it is always "hunting". Phone is basically useless when I am at home!

Good reception but rarely LTE! You should really include what KIND of reception. Yes, I have NEVER have a problem making a call on Verizon in Silicon Valley areas I've been in (many)... BUT, unlike AT&T where I could surf and call at the same time, here I can do only one or the other. It truly sucks. I miss AT&T. Now I have to tell the person I am talking to that I need to call them back because I want to surf the web, get map directions, send an email, or send them a pic I just took. What a disappointment!

I used Verizon years ago: nothing special, but very expensive. Tried AT&T: spotty coverage, if at all. Tried T-mobile: it won't work in half of my house (like AT&T) so missed and dropped calls are frequent. I just tried Boost (Sprint piggyback): 3G / 4G comes and goes, Wifi is fine but can't make solid phone calls-might as well be in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I can't hold a conversation with the store where I bought it, 6 blocks away. Is there any service that can handle this area without paying an arm and a leg. Texting? I don't know, but it took me a week to get an email from the East Bay via an iphone. Yes, I make and take phone calls, text rarely and email often... if I ever find a affordable and decent service for this black hole of an area. Until then, I make calls outside and use my CPU for business. I'm not keeping Boost, that's for sure.

I can hear people well, they cannot hear me. I have either 1 or 2 bars. A couple of years ago I used to have a great reception, obviously something changed. I contacted AT&T back in September and they told me that they were aware of a tower issue and they were working on it. No improvement so, I tried them again today, and now they want me to spend $20 per month plus the cost of the Microcell to fix the problem. Sounds like a great business to be in :)
