1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Spring Creek Rd. | Ascot Lane, Barrington, IL 60010 |

T-Mobile has very spotty coverage in Barrington Hills. Most carriers have a hard time with coverage in my location, but T-Mobile is exceptionally bad and spotty. Lots of dropped calls on my way to and from work in Deerfield, IL

Have to stand near back window to use voice service. Very disappointing. I can hear people speaking but they can[t hear me. Definitely changing.

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Barrington Rd.Near Palatine Rd., Barrington, IL 60010 |

AT&T service near this intersection is horrible. I am up and down Barrington Rd.multiple times per day and all my work contacts and family laugh because they know exactly where I am driving and when my cell phone will drop the call. In addition, Route 59 just North of Rt 62, call failure every time. Absolutely horrible reception in the Barrington area. I can't understand why AT&T hasn't fixed this problem. So many Iphone customers just put up with it, but more and more are loving Verizon's service in the area. Plan to switch as soon as possible!

I am trying out Verizon with iPhone 5 and reception is good at home. With iPhone 4, AT&T signal was poor and tons of dropped calls. Not sure if it was iphone 4 or AT&T or both. How is iphone 5 with AT&T in Barrington / Deer Park area? Any reviews will help.

Very frustrating to even try make a complete call or to get any customer satisfaction / resolution. We have a disabled daughter and heaven forbid we would need the cell for an emergency.

I live in North Barrington and all throughout the area is AWFUL cell phone reception. With an area where I know there are many iphone users, you would think AT&T would do a better job for its customers. Even in my own home I either do not have service or such bad service that none of my messages go through and all my calls are dropped.

AT&T reception sucks in this area - Barrington, Palatine, Hoffman Estates, Inverness area. My son's feature phone doesn't get much reception either.

Very poor reception for the past 4 weeks since the tower on Main street went down and was repaired. Signals are 50% of strength in the past. No service in many parts of my home now. Very disappointed in service and customer service states all is normal.

Sound often garbled, esp inside. Moving to door helps only sometimes. Pretty unusable.

Get pretty good reception. Except at around NW Hwy. and Ela. Some days no dropped calls other days yes. Have had Verizon for about six years and it is the best carrier with the reception that I need despite some dead areas.

US Cellular

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Ela Rd. | Lake Cook, Barrington, IL 60010 |

Us Cellular has perfect reception for Barrington, Lake Zurich, Deer Park, Killdeer, Palatine and into Chicago others. Never a dropped call.. Only thing is that they don't have the best phones but if your looking for a phone just to make calls and text, and check emails, then US cellular is fine. for the same areas, I've also had Verizon which was also very good.

I've lived here since 2006 and have had great signal and no dropped calls with my Verizon. I transferred service from T-Mobile (poor reception).

T-Mobile

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Route 59 | Miller Road, Barrington, IL 60010 |

We call the stretch of Route 59 from Miller Road down to south of Route 22 into Barrington proper the "Dead Zone". I don't know about the other carriers, but T-Mobile coverage is not poor, it's non-existent.

I often has no or very bad reception inside. It's hard to use cell phone outside in a cold weather, which will last 6 months.

I've lived in South Barrington and Lake Barrington my entire life and I'm sick of having to leave my house / neighborhood to use my cell phone. I've tried Sprint, Cingular, and Verizon Wireless, all with poor to no reception. The lack of cell phone towers effects all of the Barrington area. When is something going to be done about this?
