Before this summer, always had a good signal in the entire Bethany Beach area. Since June 2015, it's nearly impossible to even send a text. Forget sending a pic or using the Internet at all. It's not just my phone, but everyone with us that is also using Verizon. I've called them but they claim there's no outage.Was this review helpful to you?
Unfortunately, AT&T still has very poor service in this area. Sometimes I am able to have calls work correctly, but many times this is not the case. I'll often get one or two bars of service, but calls will be dropped and / or not go through. It's been an issue with various different brands of phones. It should be noted that AT&T attempted to put up a tower along Coastal Hwy. (DE Route 1) several years ago but ran into a regulatory mess. Several neighbors of the property threw a fit after the local Board of Adjustment approved the application, claiming that there was improper notice (which was a dubious claim). The Board caved into pressure and reversed their decision - a decision that was eventually thrown out by the Delaware State Supreme Court (due to the Board's failure to properly apply the law). Recently, AT&T put a notice in the paper that they again are going to attempt to put up a 100 ft. monopole to provide service in the Bethany area. I very much hope they succeed.Was this review helpful to you?
Virtually no service for the last several days. Previously used with minimal issues but not great. Extremely frustrating.Was this review helpful to you?
Can't even place a call right now may be a problem with the towers Thank god for extended networkWas this review helpful to you?
ATT has very poor coverage in Bethany Beach DE. I get 1 bar and can not make or receive calls on an IPhone 4. I also can not connect to the Internet. ATT needs another tower or they need to revise their coverage mapWas this review helpful to you?
This is new, I've been in Bethany Beach since Feb and used my T-Mobile phone without trouble. Now, in the middle of summer, with tons of people around, my signal is 1 bar or 0 no reception. Apparently T-Mobile has trouble with the summer volume down here. I cannot use my phone at all in the house but can still text.Was this review helpful to you?
Very poor reception. Tested with multiple phones. Must leave house to have a reliable conversation. Been this way for almost 10 years with various Verizon phones.Was this review helpful to you?
Can never get a full reception call in this area. Most of the time I have to leave my house to sustain a low quality call.Was this review helpful to you?
I had a Siemens A56i with an internal antenna in summer of 2004. This time AT&T wireless was still around. The service was terrible! Now, if you know what phone I am talking about, it was a GoPhone or prepaid. This type of phone model would switch to different carriers constantly. On one side of the house it would be AT&T. I actually did not have to dial the area code to call Northeast PA. Then, the other side of the house, I'd me roaming on Cingular! Crazy! I really dont know how coverage is elsewhere, because I was just at my uncle's vacation home, but still! I switched to Verizon because of poor customer service with AT&T / Cingular, and when they finally merged, computer things got messed up and they never automatically billed me like they were supposed to! So if I made a call, a computer voice came up saying that my minutes have expired. It was also one of those voices that is supposed to "Recognize" your voice. So instead of pressing "1" for customer service, you have to say it. Dont get Cingular prepaid. Verizon prepaid has rollover!Was this review helpful to you?
