4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Lake and 45th AveS, Minneapolis, MN 55406 |

I have had pretty good luck with T-Mobile throughout the twin cities. Bad data coverage at work in Bloomington (494 and Hwy. 100), but otherwise I've been pretty happy. In general I've had good luck. Any issues have been data signal strength. I've never had issues with dropped calls. Friends who visit with Sprint (and I think Verizon too) have much more trouble getting reception at my house).

Terrible / awful / horrendous / are you kidding me it's so effing bad kind of data service in downtown Minneapolis. You want to do a quick google search? good luck getting a result back within any reasonable time(if you are lucky), because most likely you will get something similar to 'could not connect to internet' message. Stream music without constant stop and go? haha--u make me laugh. Despite all their promises and there constant 'working on network upgrade' messages, I don't even pretend to understand how the service can be so bad in the heart of downtown. Should it not be common sense that you plan for heavier traffic in areas like these? Is a 2 month old in the charge of planning / designing / deployment / service quality? (Apologies to all 2 month old everywhere). Why the heck am I paying oodles of money for this kind of bs service? bcos, unfortuntaly, Sprint from a monetary perspective, does offer a decent value (relatively speaking, compared to what is availble to us here in the U.S.). And there are areas where service has become usable, and even has some 4G here and there. But the whole thing with Sprint... my goodness, their network is just poopier than my 2 year old's dirtiest of the dirties diaper you can think of after a thaksgivig meal. And I am stupid, cos here I am, still waiting for their promised 'network improvement coming soon' bs. It's all my fault, really.

Sprint in the last year has became the worst phone company around. Twice now I have contacted Sprint customer care complaining about my service to which they say they are upgrading the towers. I was infomred twice that I would receive a follow up phone call within 24-48 hours. 1 week later and I'm still waiting for that phone call. Almost every call is dropped, friends say they texted me and show me they did, but I never get the text and Sprint customer care is poor. I am paying the early termination fee and going to Verizon. Everyone should join me in dropping Sprint as they SUCK! P.S. I was a Sprint customer for 13+ years so it's not like anyone can say I had a bad day...

Sprints data and cellular service is horrendous in downtown Minneapolis. In my office internet is slow, streaming music no chance. 4G never works usually on 3G or 1X, even went to the Sprint store on Nicollet mall and a few employees complained about how bad it is as well. My work phone is Verizon and gets great data service in the same spots. Both are IPhone 5s and I hate That Sprint can't get it right thru all these promises of great plans.

Sprint sucks. Every time I make a call, the call gets dropped. I can't even get 4g in my apartment, and I only get 2 or 3 bars for 3g reception. I made the biggest mistake leaving Verizon. Once my contract is up, I am leaving.

I frequently get dropped calls in my own house, and generally have to stand by one or two specific windows to maintain a call once it's started. Text messages are about 80% at best, 65% at worst

Lousy, losing valuable business over this problem. I am so frustrated and cannot believe the incompetence of this company.

3G / 4G data service is HIGHLY unreliable and almost non existent when using streaming programs like Pandora, Youtube any other music app. Even when I am trying to check my Instagram I cannot pick up a good steady signal. Being stuck at work for 9hour days with no wi-fi provided by work, I rely on my phone to relax during breaks / lunch, which really sucks and makes the day even longer! I also have a Samsung Galaxy S4 that is perfect for games and music but can only listen to songs that I have on the phone. What a waste of money! Go with Verizon or AT&t because their towers must be interfering heavily with my provider (Sprint)

Ugh is all I have to say. Dropped calls, texts not coming through, roaming in my own house! Sprint has some serious issues. They keep saying the towers are upgraded in my area, but I don't think it is true.

I have great reception but drop calls all the time. I was told by Sprint they are doing upgrades all over but no deadline on completion. my contact is up and I am thinking about going with Verizon because Sprint inst cheaper any more, and they are the same price as Verizon. of course Verizon told me that Sprint got bought out and will be upgrading tower for a year or 2.
