I must say that AT&T has an absolutely horrible Cell phone network. 3 towers in Idaho Falls REALLY??? And if your setting right by one.,, there back end network is the worst.. 2.5 Meg down and.35 Meg up.. New Galaxy s6. I hate AT&T. They suck.Was this review helpful to you?
The tall dark clerk decided to add the store address to my account so that the Sprint coverage would show worked. Problem is that I live an hour away and Sprint does not work. He purposely added the stores address so the sale would go through. After realizing the (4) iphones did not work in my area I tried to take the phones back before my 14 day trial period. They went back on their offer and still charged me for the lines and took me to collections. Buyers beware of these crooked dealers. That Sprint store is corrupt and Sprint cell phones does not work anywhere from outside Idaho Falls all the way up to salmon Idaho, they lied. When my wife called the store and spoke to a manager she said she would fix the problem, some time later my balance comes up with a collection agency again for the same amount originally thrown on us, she lied also! Anyway dont let this happen to you.Was this review helpful to you?
I've been extremely happy with my Verizon service since moving to Idaho 8 years ago. I do a lot of camping, fishing and snowboarding and there are only a few places where I have limited or no coverage. On top of the mtn at Bear Lake and on top of the mtn at Grand Targhee. Most everywhere else I have excellent coverage. My coverage is a little spotty driving from Idaho Falls to Boise and there's a dead spot for a couple of miles on the drive up to Salmon. As with all of these instances, I think its absolutely understandable as you're literally in the middle of nowhere. :) Coverage in and around all of the cities throughout Idaho have great coverage and most provide amazingly fast 4G speeds. I consistently average about 25mbps down / 15 up, and in many instances much faster. Indoors, (typically in larger concrete and steel buildings), my speeds drop to the mid teens, but that's common with EVERY carrier. Out of the 4 major carrier's, Verizon far exceeds all of them in terms of call quality, speed calls, coverage, speed, and overall customer service. The old saying, "you get what you pay for" certainly holds true when it comes to your wireless carrier. I still have a grandfathered unlimited data plan and will continue to purchase my smartphones at full retail in order to keep said plan intact. The ONLY thing I dislike about Verizon (& this goes for ALL of the carrier's these days) is their greed with charging people for their data consumption. Sprint and T-Mo still offer a certain level of "unlimited data", although they do still try and throttle the customer once they go over a certain GB level. (Even though they claim that they don't. Most are not being completely honest about the level of throttling being done during peak hours) If I were to move off my current grandfathered unlimited data plan, I would end up paying close to $2500 dollars a month. This is determined by using Verizon's current data plan options for new subscribers, and the amount of data we currently use between the two phones on my plan. I'm an Administrator on a dozen Android forums and I can't tell you how many people I've seen over the past 3-4 years that have been "persuaded" by Verizon employees to give up their UDPs in favor of a more "cost effective" plan. Please keep in mind, just like text messages, using more data doesn't cost the carriers anymore money. This is simply another way for the carriers to nickel and dime it's customers and line their pockets with cash, by charging people per text or per GB of data used. Until people wake up and demand more from their carrier, this practice by Verizon and AT&T is not going to change anytime soon. And whatever you do, those of you still on a grandfathered UDP, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, do not give it up. Even if you only use 5GB of data a month. Each year the internet becomes increasingly more data intense, whether it's from playing games online, streaming movies on your smartphone / tablet, or streaming news / music / podcasts. More and more people are using their smartphones and tablets as their main source of entertainment, which is also why you're seeing more folks "cutting the cord" and ditching their cable and satellite subscriptions. (Which btw, I'm a huge proponent of) The carriers know this and are trying to take advantage of their customers by charging them per each GB used. This is robbery plain and simple. Don't put up with it. Contact your carrier, contact the FCC, and let them know you won't put up with it. As long as you continue to stay silent on this matter, they will continue to take advantage. Educate yourselves and use social media to discuss it with friends, family and even strangers. We as the consumer have the power to control this issue, so please don't sit idly by while Verizon takes advantage of your hard earned money.Was this review helpful to you?
Our reception is below average in my home as the signal is very weak here, but the real issue I have with this company is in their store and the terrible hassle it is to get help. I mean, generally people make fun of how much of your day is spent when you have to go to the DMV. Not in Idaho Falls, the worst "stand in line" situation is by far going to the Verizon Store. For this feature alone, I am considering moving to another carrier. Also, they have no reception at Grand Targhee. None, nada, zip.Was this review helpful to you?

Selectel Wireless on Verizon's Post Paid network. Something new in Idaho Falls. Place I found selling it was lend me an ear cellular on WoodruffWas this review helpful to you?
Service is okay in Idaho Falls, but I rarely have a phone call without problems at home north of town. Most of my calls are dropped or I'll be able to hear the other end, but they can't hear me. It's very frustrating and I'm switching as soon as possible. I had MUCH better luck with T-Mobile which I used in the same location for 6 years.Was this review helpful to you?
Have any of you heard of Page Plus Cellular that uses the same coverage as Verizon but way cheaper? So far this is one of the best companies I been with and I have been through Sprint, t Mobile Verizon AT&T and even the smaller companies like Syringa. Lend me an ear cellular is who me and my family use. Look them up.Was this review helpful to you?
I have had Verizon service for years and have only had 1 dropped call. I usually have full bars no matter where I am in the region.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon very often over capacity in many areas of Idaho Falls and Shelley. Many calls do not even connect after dialing... . or immediately go to a very rapid 'busy' tone... .. or sometimes they even have the guts to state in a message that their system has too much activity on it ! 4G LTE --- "forget about it"Was this review helpful to you?
