Can send and receive text messages, but it takes quite a while to send. There is a tower north of us on Kelly Ridge Rd. I usually have only two bars, but outside on the deck I can intermittently get two bars. We are attempting to install a WEboost antenna, but instructions are unclear. A neighbor a little lower in elevation has another carrier with a booster and is able to use voice as well as texts.Was this review helpful to you?
Have been "working" with Verizon for 2 months. They PROMISED me a signal boost as I have had NO cell phone service. I had to call them and follow up every time. Tonight they reniged on their agreement to send me the device to keep me as a 4 + yr customer. No! Change of plan : they NOW want ME to pay $150 and not allow me out of the contract if it DOES not work. I pay that much each Month to them, including the past TWO months I have wasted with them and getting NO service. No phone cell service AND no customer service. VERY disappointed with Verizon. They do not keep their word and they do not provide good coverage in Kelly Ridge. I will be going to Sprint since roommate's phone DOES work. Also consider an old school phone as Smart Phones do not seem to get as good of reception as those with external antenna (or so it would seem... ). Verizon : shame on you for treating a loyal customer so poorly!Was this review helpful to you?
Ive had ATT, sprint, cellular, and metro. Verizon is the best so far. There isn't enough cell coverage in Oroville period!Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint has complete spotty service in this entire area, I can't count on how many times I get dropped calls in this area, it's wide open!Was this review helpful to you?
Had almost no reception with Verizon, switched to AT&T. Fair reception in 4 rooms, poor reception in 2 rooms and no reception in bedroom! Bars change constantly and frequently drops my calls at home.Was this review helpful to you?

I get about 3 bars or sometimes even more, but it is always choppy. Can never really hear anybody or the call just drops.Was this review helpful to you?
I've tried 4 different phones here, and all have bad reception most of the time. Included are Virgin Mobile, Verizon, Trac Phone, and Straight Talk---all had bad reception at my address. All work fine down in Oroville. Why don't they put a tower in my back yard. We're high up on a hill above Oroville. Perfect location for a cell phone tower.Was this review helpful to you?
Range of reception on iPhone varies from 2 bar 3G to no service! Whatever the cell bars, my wife cannot reach me from Chico; sometimes can. Very iffy reception... can't figure why it varies so much without affecting being able to receive a phone call. Irritating!Was this review helpful to you?
