    I figure this would be a fun-ish question. I've noticed in my time flying for work that the area I get the worst signal in is airports. LAX and SLC are the worst by far, although MCI is close. Really, I just get poor signal at any airport I've ever been to. This made me want to ask you all, where do you see the worst signal?

    Great question, sir, but I'm going to have to give it some thought. Hopefully, other members will provide some feedback in the meantime...

    Let me preface this by saying I LOVE T-Mobile glad I switched! AND Verizon was ALMOST as bad in the place I am about to mention (actually Verizon was WORSE), BUT center city, Philadelphia is BAD! On the plus side not as bad as it once was, BUT it's bad! At BEST I get 2 or 3 M down but often it's under 1!

    DAMN, banner day, getting like 10M down today! T-Mobile DOES work on it as they say!

    I've tested my down speeds on Verizon at home where my cellular signal is 1 dot in the status bar vs at other locations where my signal is 4 or 5 dots. The down speeds don't really change. Was your internet server location the same with Verizon and T-mobile?

    My worst signal is in my house vs anywhere else in town. Only 1 dot in the status bar in the house. It improves if I walk outside in my yard.

    There is one Kroger (supermarket) that I visit on a regular basis that is terrible. I lose signal in the back of the store, and can't even receive texts. This seems to be a problem only is this location, because I've not had any issues in other Kroger locations. I've also noticed some issues in hospitals and hotels! Of course, I turn my phone off in certain areas of hospitals where cell phone use is prohibited.

    That is a good question, and I don't recall. It's been a couple years since I made the change AND T-Mobile has improved VERY much since I have been with them. Center city, Philly was pretty much a dead zone for all the carriers (saturation being the issue I'm sure) BUT it's getting MUCH better in the last couple weeks on T-Mobile!

    Really? I get great service in LAX & MCI. TEB & EWR are pretty terrible for me but I also hate both of those airports so whatever LOL. My worst service has been between Lubbock, TX, Clovis & Truth or Consequences, NM. Hopefully service has gotten better.

    Surprisingly I'm finding that I lose signal on a large highway between large cities, but then I discover that "out in the boonies" I have full LTE signal.

    Makes no sense.

    There's two dead spots with no signal. One is on i295 and the other is in my city center. When I'm on a call it drops and when I'm not on a call it shows no signal in the same two spots
