    Same. As much as people bitch about ATT I don't ever seem that have an issue. TMobile is spotty here in my metro area and Verizon is still CDMA network so I stay put.

    A few years ago I received a hand-me-down pay-as-you-"go" T-mobile, but I never really "went" so the phone went to live in our pile of old tech.
    I've been cell-free since 2014. :thumbsup:
    I have a landline to make phone calls with, a camera to take pictures with, and my trusty Sony Walkman for my tunes, so I'm good! :D

    My bride, on the other hand, is on her phone constantly! :faint:

    I have Tmobile for my personal service and Verizon for my company phone. Tmobile iphone is ok in most casinos, but absolutely NO service inside of Planet Hollywood. Verizon seems to be just fine everywhere.

    Virgin mobile (VM) here, dead spots at Cal's live keno, and dead spot in the Market Street cafe. VM is a Sprint subsidiary, very lousy coverage, but cheap $30 monthly plan using an iPhone 6 Plus. Hot spot is $10 extra per month, so $40 total, so I suck it up and deal with it.

    But with Boyd rolling out its free wifi in the casino it's just a matter of time when dead spots will be irrelevant.

    Yea, we had VM for our old flip phones and it was hard to beat the $8 month fee. But just too many dead spots including our new house.

    MSS was bad. Dropped calls, calls that didn't go through etc. So when we bought the iPhones, we changed to TM. But as stated above, my wife is running into dead spots around here, including the golf course she plays twice a week. I told her she shouldn't have her phone on while golfing. Then I heard "IT WON'T WORK IN THE PARKING LOT". OK, time to find new carrier.

    I have T-Mobile and can't recall any problems on my last visit.

    T-Mobile is the "name" sponsor of the T-Mobile Arena. I would think they would have done as much upgrading in Vegas as they could to make sure there are few issues because of this marketing campaign..

    I only had issues inside a couple of casinos and in that case, I was able to connect to wifi and all was good in the world, not that I cared if I was connected much except when I wanted to update my trip report
