I almost selected "No Reception," because my phone no longer gets bars inside my home (95841)-I am totally dependent on WiFi. I usually use my phone near a window facing College Oak Drive. Outside on College Oak Drive, I get 2 to 3 bars. I do not live in a bunker, but since Sprint officially took over Virgin (I know Sprint was the carrier for Virgin), its service started going downhill. At my office in East Sacramento, I get 0-1 bars on my phone. I have to travel to San Francisco to get good coverage. I like my phone, originally purchased from Virgin, but am frustrated with the downhill turn Sprint service has taken in Sacramento.Was this review helpful to you?
Virgin Mobile service is horrible all the time. I consistently have one bar all times of day and night. Call quality is horrendous.Was this review helpful to you?
We used to have great service here (except in the kitchen for some reason) and we spend a lot of money for our Verizon account. During the last month or so my phone has slowed down so much I have spent hours dumping apps and photos and changing Task Managers to speed up my phone before realizing it was Verizon's lack of coverage that was at fault. I now regularly only have 1 bar, occasionally 2. Of course trying to navigate the horrible morass that is Verizon's "Sell, Sell, Sell, " web page is useless. Good luck, folks.Was this review helpful to you?
I've been with T-Mobile for about 8 years and I can honestly say that I am VERY pleased from my rate plan, to signal strength AND the best customer service in the industry! Over all my reception in most parts of town is very good. I have had small issues here and there but nothing major that would make me jump to another carrier. Most of the signal issues that I do have usually occur indoors and in select buildings with a lot of steel and concrete. And there are times when I'm at home that I may decide to disable the Wi-Fi fully utilizing the T-Mobile LTE network. A lot of people tell me Verizon and AT&T have larger coverage area but the thing that I've noticed that stands out with my carrier is the overall signal and sound quality! The biggest is not necessarily always the best! I can't see myself leaving T-mobile anytime soon if at all!Was this review helpful to you?

I just switched from AT&T to save some money. I've had service for two days and am pretty disappointed. With AT&T I had LTE almost everywhere. With T-Mobile I usually get only 2 bars and mostly 4g. Sometimes LTE. Went to SF today and had better coverage. But some places near the beach no signal. I'd say it definitely is a step down but what can I expcet. There's a reason it's cheaper. Hopefully it will get better. I do have to say though. I streamed music all the way from SF to Sac no problem. So while its spotted and low signal. It did work most the time.Was this review helpful to you?
In the house we get 2 to 3 bars. Calls are never dropped and seem to come through okay. Overall happy with cell service. I have a Tracfone android phone that uses the Verizon cell system.Was this review helpful to you?

I just went from Verizon to t mobile and I'm very happy with t mobile. My Verizon bill was around $220 a month for two phones now I just pay $121 for two phones everything unlimited.😬😬😬😬😬😬Was this review helpful to you?
The negative would be in terms of cost. Verizon is expensive in terms of monthly cost with two users, and two phones, costing around $150 / month. But I'll admit that signal strength in the Sacamento region doesn't appear to ever be a problem. I'd love to switch to a lower cost, but from what I'm reading, I think I'll stick with Verizon.Was this review helpful to you?
