I am moving to San Antonio in a week and need to get a new phone. I was wondering whether Sprint or AT&T have better cell reception. I will need to use cell phone for work a lot so can't have dropped calls or poor reception. Also need the reception to be very good inside buildings. My husband is already in the city and is having trouble getting good reception with his AT&T Blackberry. I can barely hear him when I call. I am interested in Sprint or AT&T because I want to get either iphone or Evo. Thanks. Elena

AT&T SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have it for work so I don't have a choice. Dropped calls all day, everyday. I can be driving down a major freeway and the call is lost. I don't get good service at my house and when I called to ask their reply was "sorry our map shows we cover your zip code." The new iphone supposedly has a better antenna. I will find out shortly, but my husbands blackberry does the same. I don't think the phone matters. Verizon works great where I live.

I have Sprint and am happy with it. I work in SA and live outside of the city, in the hill country, and don't have any problems with dropped calls in either area.

Overall, I'm pleased w/Sprint - have tried AT&T <sucks donkey spit>, T-Mobile <provides the donkey spit> and frankly wouldn't switch.....

I would say think about Verizon...AT&T drops calls like nothing I have ever seen. I was talking to my wife the other day, and it dropped my call 3 times in less than 4 minutes. Wholly Crap... I had Sprint before that and it was not as bad, but I am going to be switching when my contract is up. Verizon has been the best company I have used. Just my 2 cents!

I have sprint and have no complaints. I work downtown so the large buildings and elevator use cause some bad reception, but everywhere else is issue free.

I had Sprint for about 10 years, I started having a lot of problems with dropped calls, both while driving around and at my house. I took advantage of a change to the TOS and was able to get out of my contract without having to pay the early termination fee. I switched to AT&T in January and have not had many problems. AT&T is a bit more expensive than Sprint, but I'm happy so far.

I've been with Sprint for quite a few years. In the beginning, they were quite a pain, but I must admit that they've made leaps and bounds in the past few years.

And i'm not trying to pick a fight or get off topic, but Android phones are great (hint....hint)

Both my wife and I use the iPhone with AT&T and have had no problems. I get great coverage all over town. I hear people complaining about AT&T's dropped calls, but I've never experienced it.
