    I've read people say the antenna's aren't as good and just wondering which network you have your XS Max on and if you noticed reception not as good as your prior iphone/android?

    I have mine on T-Mobile. Honestly I haven’t noticed a difference compared to my iPhone X.

    I’m on T Mobile. I have to admit that certain times my wife’s 8 plus has better signal than my XS Max. I don’t remember it being like that when I had my X.

    I'm on Verizon with my Xs Max and I haven't noticed any difference compared to my 7 Plus.

    I got the sim free from Apple, but currently using an AT&T Sim and have not noticed any difference.

    I am on T mobile and where I work band 71 is live and it won’t pick up that band. I have a complaint into apple to look into this.

    T-Mobile. With the new band 71 and extended range LTE, it’s awesome. I dare to compare my lte data speeds.

    I am on T Mobile and at first I though my signal may have been better on my XS then my X.

    But after using my XS the past couple of weeks, I haven’t noticed any major difference. I have always had good coverage with T Mobile and you can’t beat the senior rate of 60 dollars a month for two lines and unlimited data for folks like myself who are over 55.

    I'm on Verizon and performance seems as fine as the 7 Plus and earlier models still in the family. Once in a while the Max has 1 bar LTE when a 7 Plus has 2-3 bars 3G. That was obvious again today with my wife driving and both phones in my lap.

    At times the "gigabit LTE" seems obvious.

    Basically the product works great.

    AT&T. No problems for me. I haven’t noticed any difference between my wife’s 8 or mine.

    Can you guarantee my good old friend @mumfoau that he will have the same or even better coverage on T-Mobile as with Verizon?

    For the areas I visit, both VZW and T-Mobile should be pretty close in coverage.

    Unfortunately they've now raised the senior rate (for new customers) to $70/month. And the military rate can be better if you have enough people on the plan; while it is $80 for two people, slightly higher, it is only $90 for three (and $10/line for the next three lines).

    I initially had att and then we switched to Verizon... like night and day when it comes to service. Att I was dropping calls and had very weak service with the new iPhone. But with Verizon even at two bars I haven’t had one dropped call.
