I live 4.50 miles on West HWY 16 and have been with AT&T / Cingular since 90'. The service has changed in the last year to "CRAP"!Was this review helpful to you?
i find that unless I am inside a few of the buildings at the university which seem to have lead-shielded walls (but which have good wifi, which I think is t-m), I never have any connectivity or speed problems. I ride a bike out into the country often, and i've never found a place where I don't get quick google maps. the u of a problem the 2004 reviewers mentioned is gone.Was this review helpful to you?
It is awful. I can not imagine that Verizon has still not done anything to improve their signal strength here.Was this review helpful to you?
We have two iPhone 5 phones currently on Tmobile. We love it. In East Fayetteville and Goshen it's actually better than AT&T or Verizon and we've been a customer of both of those providers. I highly recommend it. It's also very good in Springdale, Lowell and Rogers / Bentonville. No complaints at all. I have heard different opinions on the iPhone 4. Can't speak to that. But, the 5 has great reception with TMobile.Was this review helpful to you?
I live in Fayetteville and work in Bentonville and I have been very pleased with my switch from Verizon / Alltel to AT&T several months back. My girlfriend and I (she has a Samsung) always seem to have a great signal traveling around Fayetteville, up I-540, etc. It is imperative that I have cell service at all times for work, and I'm comfortable camping at Beaver Lake with AT&T's service, which has been very reliable up there (including data use). The only place where I've had issues is where I work, in one of the larger buildings in downtown Bentonville. I have a dropped call, perhaps once or twice a month, while making calls from there and data service is considerably slower. At home here in Fayetteville, the service is perfect. This, coupled with Verizon's pathetic customer service, is why we're glad we switched.Was this review helpful to you?
Great coverage when we had Alltel. Since Verizon bought them out, we have ONE phone that we can use at home... sometimes... out of FOUR. (We have tried two others) Calling Verizon is about like talking to a tree. Might make you feel a little better but thats about it. They SAY that if you switch to a Verizon phone and update your plan it will be better. I'm not buying that. Even if it were true, that is shoddy business practice. Buy a company then force your new customers to upgrade in order to receive adequate service! I travel much of the state and have similar problems with coverage by Verizon. I often travel highways with NO SIGNAL for an hour or more. Plan to switch back to AT and T or another company when contract expires in a couple of months.Was this review helpful to you?
Used to have Alltel and switched to Verizon when they were bought out, have almost perfect reception everywhere in the Fayetteville and surrounding area's, althoughwhen you get out to extremely Western Arkansas, mostly out past Lincoln, service is a little sketchy, but I have fairly good reception a lot of places my friends with other providers don't have any.Was this review helpful to you?
Seldom have I had an issue with call quality in town. I've had Cingular / AT&T for years and their service has always been good in town. Going to or from some of the smaller cities in the area is not as good though, such as going to or from Elkins / Lincoln etc.Was this review helpful to you?
Horrible reception. Might as well not have service. Not sure which carrier to switch to.Was this review helpful to you?
Although T-Mobile has great reception in the Bentonville / Rogers area it does not extend well to the Fayetteville / UofA campus area. I initially had a dual-band phone and was told that I needed a quad-band phone for it to work well in the area. This helped a bit, but not by much. However once the phone loses the T-Mobile network (zero bars), it immediately picks up ATT's network and the call clarity if great. But this story doesn't have a good ending... This week I received a letter from T-Mobile stating that my service will be discontinued as the majority of my calls over the last few months have been outside my calling area (or rather, outside the T-Mobile network - on ATT's). So although I was getting great reception once my T-Mobile phone picked up ATT's network, apparently I am costing T-Mobile more than what they're getting from me. So basically, T-Mobile reception sucks in this area, but they have the best customer service of any cell phone provider I've been with.Was this review helpful to you?
