Service stinks ! 7yrs ago I had T-Mobile and left. I pick up Tmo 7 yrs later and customer service is still giving the same answer. “ We at Tmo are aware of the prob are Tech team is working on issue but their is no time frame yet until the prob is fixed ” they don't care about their customers.

Time to leave Sprint... had I known at the time they are selling LTE devices with NO LTE NETWORK I never would have renewed my damn contract! What good is having one of the newest, best, fastest devices out if your stuck on 3G with no LTE turn-on date in the near future??!

Get reception in my house, but when leaving area goes down to 1 or 2 bars, then none. I work in Center City, and I get zero reception 90% of the time. Instead of even 3G, I get the circle with a line through it. I have to reboot or walk towards Market St. to get reception, which is spotty at best. I've been with TMobile for 7 years, and I love my plan ($) and customer service, but the reception is absolute garbage. I will be cancelling my contract this week.

Very poor reception in my office on the 15th floor. Some days I can't make a call at all, so I end up using the land line. I don't know if it is an AT&T problem, but I am considering switching to Verizon. My coworkers have Verizon and have no problems at all.

I wonder if those of you who have such troubles are smart phone users. I have been with T-Mobile exclusively since I first got a cell phone in 2001 and only at the beginning - when I lived in the middle of Nowhere, Suburbia - did I have any trouble with reception. I moved to Near Civilization, Suburbia and my reception was suddenly great. Now, I live in the deep heart of Urban Dreck and my reception is outstanding. I drop maybe a couple of calls a month but my bars are always full. I have never had nor will I ever have a smart phone. Call me a snob but my phone works. Can you say the same?

If there was an option between Poor and Below Average, I would've gone for that.. Ideall its not even 2.. its 1.5.. I would not advice anyone one to go for T-mobile..

I have 2 bars about 30 % of the time and an SOS instead of bars for the other 70 %. I have been in constant contact with T-Mobile for the past two months and they keep coming up with new things for me to try but in the end nothing works. I have to walk a block or two to gain reception. When I tell them how unhappy I am they remind me its only 100 dollars to break my contract.

I have some issues with data or getting connected and staying connected. I have pre paid and I have been having problems with the data portion of reception I pay $ 60.00 which includes unlimited talk and text and 2gs of data. The phone has been reset and checked. There is a problem with the towers, I suspect.

I swear this company has aged me! At&T was always my go-to company for cell service. Used them for 4+ yrs years ago and never any complaints. I went to pay as you go for a bit with AT&T and still was great. Then I went w a contract w them and thats when I started to lose my mind. I receive voicemails HOURS late w no missed call / phone number unless they leave it. Some texts get held up for hours, or when I try to send, I have to press 'try again' sometimes up to 8 times for it to go through! My mom tried to call on my bday and she tried 3 times throughout the day... each time it said "sorry this line is disconnected"... even though I was using the phone all day! I thought my own mother forgot my Bday all bc of AT&T! I am in the market to upgrade my phone to an iphone 4s. I now am at the point where I can't even risk signing another 2 yr contract with that company, so I might switch to Verizon. 2 roommates here and one has V one has ATT... .the one who uses ATT has to go outside to talk on his phone. Verizon gets service in and outside of our house. Il pay the extra $5-10 a month on my bill if it means the service actually WORKS!

Haven't had reception in my house for past 6 days. T-Mobile tells me a town went down. I will wait 1 more day and then I'm out of this contract.
