Verizon towers are the only game in town but you're not limited to Verizon service you can get Straight Talk on Verizon $45 unlimited everything you can get Total Wireless $25 a month unlimited talk and text with a $10 add on data package both will operate on Verizon, same Verizon network without Verizon contract or Customer service headachesWas this review helpful to you?
T-Mobile seems to only have one tower to service this entire area, and it's 2G / Edge. I do a lot of roaming on Cellular One, which is also slow and unreliable. I sure hope that at a minimum, TMobile upgrades their lone tower to 4g, and perhaps considers adding some additional towers. This is a heavily frequented tourist destination for urban folks used to great TMobile service.Was this review helpful to you?
good for talking / texting. Data connection extremely slow. Don't bother trying to download or use apps.Was this review helpful to you?
Where will we located the nearest cell towers for Verizon service. We would like to aim a directional antenna at it in hopes of increasing our signal.Was this review helpful to you?
Spotty coverage except on Duce of clubs, 1 / 2 mile off main road only 1 bar, gets worse in Pinetop, no coverage at Casino.Was this review helpful to you?
Excellent reception with Verizon only. No other cell company has decent service in the White Mountains. As a result, unless you want to pay $90 to $100 per month for a Verizon plan, you cannot use a smartphone here.Was this review helpful to you?
T-mobile promised me that I would have great coverage here in show low AZ, there coverage map shows they do as well. Well that turned out to be a lie. They used Cellular One towers which me my phone apps and features will not work. Now I am stuck on a two year contract with crappy service. DO NOT GET T-MOBILE FOR THE SOW LOW, LAKESIDE / PINETOP AREA !Was this review helpful to you?
Even with amplified exterior antenna, we get no Sprint signal at all on any of our phones. Tried in downtown Show Low, too, and nothing. However, Sprint shows coverage (phone and data) for this area. Looks like we'll have to change service.Was this review helpful to you?
Great reception in and around Show Low area. Many outlying areas are strong and improving every day.Was this review helpful to you?
coverage is spotty, seems to cycle from no bars to 3 and back again in 5 min. Some areas of town are better, but the outskirts are very poor.Was this review helpful to you?
