Zero to two bars if I am lucky at my house which is a block away from 71st and NE Glisan. At Glisan it jumps to 5 bars.

Only 1 flashing bar of signal at my apartment in Milwaukie. In Portland I get full signal readout. 3G is an absolute joke, but I knew that from the beginning. VM basically gets Sprint / Boost Mobiles left over 3G bandwidth. :(

I live off Towle in a "Good" coverage zone (2 bars) according to the T-Mobile coverage map. I generally get 2-3 bars in the house upstairs, and 1-2 bars downstairs. Never had a dropped call (had service for 2 weeks so far). So voice coverage is pretty good. But data service inside buildings SUCKS. 4G signal is apparently very weak, when I'm inside almost any building that's not right next to a tower, I'm on 2G (sometimes full bars on 2G though). I've also noticed a few texts take 45 minutes to come through. Strange. Coverage in some buildings occasionally drops out for text and voice too though. Even in places with full bars outside, if the building is very thick, you may not have ANY reception. So, overall pretty good outdoors, but very spotty in buildings for data, and sometimes talk / text too. Coming from Verizon, which has excellent coverage, it's definitely a step down, but overall it's worth it to me (current plan costs less than 1 / 2 of same Verizon plan). WiFi calling helps where you have WiFi too

Overall, my coverage for calling and texting is pretty good, but occasionally, I'll go into roaming in almost every part of town--especially when the weather is really bad. 3G is slow to average for what 3G is supposed to be, but 4G is terrible, and doesn't seem to get a very strong signal(if any) in my apartment--especially for me living downtown, but it works great outside. Walking around sometimes outside I run into dead spots, but I'm sure that's normal. But if 4-6mpbs is the norm for WiMax 4G(which I know that it's capable of much higher speeds), then as soon as my contract goes up, I will be looking to switch because sometimes 3G is better, and if I wanted just 3G, then I would only get a 3G phone! Sprint really needs to step up their game in every aspect of their service or they will be not only losing me as a customer, but I'm sure a lot of others as well. One last thing, I have absolutely little to no internet service on or around the PCC Sylvania campus! What is that!? Verizon has better coverage for places like that then Sprint does. I had Sprint back when they were PCS and they still failed in comparison. Get it together, Sprint!

Bars don't really mean much. Never had a dropped call with Verizon in the Portland area. At home in SW Gresham I get 1-2 bars but still can make and receive calls and send and receive pic / txt messages no problem. Really expensive service so I am trying out T-Mobile. Will keep u posted! (C)

I may occasionally get less than 5 bars, but that's pretty rare. I live in a heavily treed area and it's fine because there is a cell tower nearby on Boones Ferry. I couldn't be more satisfied with reception.

I live in a house near Albina (close to where it transitions into Mississippi) and get spotty reception all throughout my neighborhood. I get zero reception in my bedroom downstairs, while my boyfriend has no issues whatsoever on his Verizon phone. I hit several dead spots on the bus downtown.

Occasional dropped call, but I blame my phone. The only place without coverage is the basement-- and that's to be expected!
