Verizon's signal is good until I get home, when I reach my sub-division the signal starts to fall. As soon as I reach my yard there is no signal and if there is its one bar and no data. Called Verizon many times on the issue and they told me I had 2 choices, get a network extender or cancel my contract. But I would have to pay more money to have a signal I already pay for, and the extender they cannot guarantee it will work. this is unsat and we should not have to pay additional for service we already pay for. Since they say they have the best network in the country. So poor service

My wife and I switched from Verizon to t mobile wanting to save a few bucks. We checked the coverage map and all good for crestview to egin afb. We got the phones int ft walton than headed home. On 123 I noticed my phone on edge mode-2g, Got home still on 2g. I've called t mobile twice in 2 days to fix it. They said they are sending out an engineer and not to call again because there wont be any new information for the next 72 business hours. Needless to say if we don't get 4g in crestview and eglin we are going back to verizon... thank got for the 14 day buyers remorse.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | John King | Coronado Circle, Crestview, FL 32539 |

My reception varies south of I-10 east on John King but I hardly ever get dropped calls. I am a long time AT&T user and that should tell you that I am satisfied with their service. Would really like to have 3G service here in Crestview though. I think the Edge system is way too slow to be paying for it. The 3G coverage in Fort Walton Beach is way faster.

Phone reception is so horrible... I can't call anyone and when I do get a hold of someone you can't hear past the buzz. Family plan and they have different phones same problem.

OMG... for the amount of money AT&T charges you'd think you can use the telephone without having to stand completely still in one spot or bammm call dropped. It's just as good as talking through two cans and a string.

We recently moved to Crestview and switched to AT&T. We went into the store and the sales person boasted about how much greater their reception is here so we took the bait and invested in the iPhone. Horrible decision! When I went back into the store, thinking it was my phone, I was told I get bad service because I live south of I-10 and I needed to buy a booster for $150, which I refuse. If you travel between Crestview and Eglin, FORGET talking on your phone. Half the conversation is bubbly sounding and then your call gets dropped. This has happened to me every day since getting this service 2 weeks ago. Beware!

Forget paying for internet around here. NO reception at all. I am so tired of it AT&T! Do something about it and live up to what you profess!

We have even put in a cell phone repeater and booster. Only increased reception to 1 1 / 2 bars. Lousy service!

Alltel

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Hwy. 90 | Old Bethel, Crestview, FL 32536 |

I am very happy with Alltel service and coverage. I have had no real issues in the area or while I have been traveling. I have only found one dead zone for coverage and it is on 85 just before the north end of 123. It is only a few moments and it is hit or miss. My contract is up and I am going to renew with Alltel. I have had three other providers and this is the best coverage I have ever had. I travel west and north and have not had any problems with getting a signal. I just wish Samsung had a touch screen with Alltel.

I tell everyone not to call my cell phone if they know I'm at home - I have to lean into a window or walk outside. Arrrgghhh!

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Hwy. 85 and Jones | Ridge Lake and Adams, Crestview, FL 32536 |

Just moved here from Tucson where I had excellent reception. Inside my house and around the outside my phone is constantly roaming which means I am missing a lot of phone calls and my voicemails show up hours later. My phone calls usually get dropped or fade in and out. I constantly have to have my phone hooked up to the charger inside the house. I get reception here and there driving around with the usual one to two bars. Just found out that the tower is 3.56 miles away from me! When I lived in Tucson, this phone worked in elevators and in the basement and in other buildings where no other phones had reception. BUT, I get perfect reception on the bridge right next to the Nextel store! AT&T has one tower, that I know of almost right next to the Sprint tower and he gets reception all over the place!

I though Cingular was bad... rude..incompetent... basic liars! Sent me a replacement phone..still no network! So Im paying $150 a month for 4 phones that suck!

Alltel

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Around Hwy. 90, Crestview, FL 32539 |

I recently tried Alltel from Cingular because Cingular's plans are outrageously high. But it was a great decision because the coverage is just as good if not better than anybody else here including Cingular. More people should really consider Alltel in this area and I wish they had a more visible store. But their network is about flawless here and consistently on 4 or 5 bars out of a total of 5 on the phone. The plans are in a different league than Cingular. Alltel offers more minutes for the price on every type of plan. The My Circle feature is awesome and is basically unlimited calling for me because I don't spend a lot of time talking to more than 10 numbers. I would go with a Motorola phone on Alltel's network because the calls sound great for me, no drops, and excellent reception. I've tried them all and Alltel's coverage is just as good as anybody else except their plans offer a lot more. They are a good decision for this area.

I have great reception in FWB, but if I want to use my phone at home in Crestview, I have to stand OUTSIDE and still only have 1 1 / 2 bars!

I am in a new subdivision off Hwy. 90 near 393 and I have had great reception. I make road trips to NC, NY and lower FL all the time with no problem. The NC mountains and WV mountains give me trouble occasionally but this is the best service I've found.

Alltell, maybe, has added another tower in Crestview. Even with more towers Verison can't get a clear signal on the phone they gave us. We re programed a Smart phone for it's search capabilities. At the Verison store today was a speaker system guaranting 100% satisfation. Not! The phone they give doesn't work, the up grade doesn't work and they blame it on the expanding network? Smoke and mirrors. We have Nextell here, no one has rated them. And with so many carriers I would think they would be giving offers like crazy! But a $400. cancellation fee after 15 days from Version did it for me. Cox bundle is looking better, no more cell.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | South Crestview | Duke Field / Eglin AFB, Crestview, FL 32539 |

I started out with Verizon and the service was horrible. Most of the time I didn't even have service. I switched to Cingular and have been very pleased with the service. I frequently travel between John King and Duke FIeld and Eglin AFB. I haven't had any trouble on Hwy. 85. I have decent recetion while on Duke Field, even while inside most buildings. Hwy. 123 has a couple of dead spots in the lower areas. Hwy. 85 near Eglin's ACC gate has one short dead spot. On Eglin Main my service is great, even near the Commissary and BX where I notice most people have no service. I have talked to many people that work and travel in the same area. They have all said Cingular's service is the best they have had in this area. I have been told that the phone manufacturer has a lot to do with the type of service received. Ask your service provider if there is a specific brand of phone that works best on thier network.
