Horrible reception inside and outside my house. Need to go to a very specific corner (within inches) of my house to get 1 bar. Messages often received days later. There is either a coverage hole or an interference issue (or both) in this area. This is just poor network planning. I don't understand why there is no class lawsuits against AT&T or any other operators for providing virtually no service to customers in the locations most important to them while refusing to let customers cancel the contract. FCC needs to act!

My cel reception at my house has gone through ups and downs since I moved. I get dropped calls. I'll get a voicemail 2 hours after it was left, with my phone having never rung. If by some miracle I manage to get a connection, if I don't stand just so, I'll be able to hear the other person, but they won't be able to hear me, or they'll describe my voice as "coming from underwater". At first, I thought perhaps my microphone was failing, but this happens when I use my bluetooth headset as well.

Cellular voice and data reception is unusable. Often get 2 bars but still cannot make or receive calls, send text messages, or connect for data. Told ATT about it. And told them to at least give me a microcell tower. They said no. So I guess they don't need me as a customer. Will definitely drop ATT after my contract's up this year.

There is a sizeable Verizon dead zone in this area, and this is an area of huge development with a new shopping center, corporate offices, and a 450 unit condo complex under construction. Outside of buildings, Verizon is 1 bar - inside there is no coverage - calls not possible. It has been this way for years. Anyone who buys into the new condos under construction at this site better plan on getting a land line! Wonder if they are wiring copper into these new buildings?? Under the 4G load in dense Silicon Valley areas - Verizon's network is beginning to suffer.

No cell signal here for last 5 years. It will not have any improvement neither. The community for the concerns of health, voted down any cell phone towers here.

I have broken multiple iphones in frustration to dropped / ghost calls. Worst ever.

In the last few months the service quality has dropped dramatically. Although my phone shows 3 to 4 bars when I am not on a call as soon as I get a call it drops to 1 or none. I end up losing the connection and have to wonder around outside looking for a good spot to return the call.

Update: It is now September 13, a full week after all \"vision\" upgrades were supposed to have been completed, and service is still poor to nonexistent. All the Sprint representatives have now been trained to say they understand how frustrating it is, but it will all be worth it because the new service is going to be so awesome. I had perfectly fine service before, so for me, no, being without service for more than a month is not going to be worth it, no matter how great the new service is. To their credit, Sprint refunded me two entire months of charges, although I did have to push for it. Previous review, August 5, 2012: Since around 1pm on August 1 (3 days ago), signal went from consistently 4 bars to now wildly fluctuating between 0-3. Sprint insisted for 2 days that all towers were working normally in the area. Finally yesterday they told me upgrades were going on at any given time through September 7, 2012 since April of this year. Representative was unable to give me any useful information about work being done to towers specifically near me. Basically, you may not have service for another month or more, tough luck. Service went from very good to almost unusable.
