Sprint still has not addressed the problem of service in Long Beach. To make matters worse the Nextel service which has been fantastic will be removed and if you don't switch they will bill you 10 additional dollars a month per phone for CRAPPY service. Their solution of a booster is not a good one because once you leave the house the service is terrible.Was this review helpful to you?
Having moved here June 10th,(Long Beach Indiana) I recieve little to no cell phone service. Sprint basically called me a liar on the phone. Yet speak to anyone who lives in the area and read the reviews online and they all say the same thing. Even the Sprint Rep. at the Michigan City store said I live in a dead zone. Sprint has been so unreasonable about this. I am on call with my job, I have been called to work and missed the calls. Which has subsequently landed me in hot waterand major lost wages. I have been a Sprint customer for over 7 years and I have never been treated so poorly by another phone company in my life. They of course are going to bill me the early termination fee of $80 even though my plan is almost up.I have had this plan almost two full years and when you speak to them they tell me it is not up until 2013? Totally contradicting what the Sprint Rep. told me in the Michigan City store. I plan on taking this further and they will see me in small claims court in Michigan City IN. soon! Good job for alienating a loyal customer Sprint..I work for a global airline, my word of mouth travels faster than 3G... .I have since gone with ATT and I have no complaints.Was this review helpful to you?
I don't know what the previous posters are smoking but Verizon works flawlessly in MC.. I have yet to have a dropped call or no signal anywhere.. I have 3g everywhere including long beach...Was this review helpful to you?
I choose Verizon because they said they had 3G coverage in the area. Since I have had T Mobile and Sprint before had little or no coverage. I received a call from Tech Support for Verizon and stated " Michigan City is marginal coverage". So looking for a new carrier!Was this review helpful to you?
From what AT&T says MC is on Centennial towers which do not work very well. I got from 5 bars to 1 bar when making calls. No incoming calls and very few outgoing. Ready to go back to landlines.Was this review helpful to you?
I get 1 or 2 bars. Phone works well on second floor facing North. Voices break up on both sides of the conversation. Some calls are missed.Was this review helpful to you?
1 bar or no bar. No In coming call or outgoing call. Cingular and SBC had batter signals. Since At and t came there is 1 bar or no bar. When I complaine AT&T say we are working on intigartion. I do not know how long they will keep intigrating when service will improve in this area.Was this review helpful to you?
No workable reception in most of Long Beach. We have a newish tower at the town center but apparently Sprint chooses not to use it.Was this review helpful to you?
If I stand by a window or go outside, I might get 2 bars... but usually not. It's been this bad for years. Actually, there's few places in the Michigan City area where I can get more than 2 bars.Was this review helpful to you?
only place you really get a signal in Michigan Ciy, IN is north end of city by Blue Chip on U.S. 12 full bars. Go south and you lose the signal. Same if you go in anyplace.Was this review helpful to you?
Entire Lakeshore has no coverage from Verizon. Michigan City area has limited coverage.Was this review helpful to you?
Nextel has one tower near 4th street and dropped plans to add another one near the High School. How could anyone plan to put one tower as far North as possible is beyond me.. There is more coverage on Lake Michigan then the M.C. area. Furthermore it seems as if Sprint may be ridding of the Nextel name completely.Was this review helpful to you?

There's either little or no reception at our cottage near Stop 7 on Lake Shore Dr.in Michigan City, IN. The coverage is poor throughout the area nearly till you get to Interstate 94. The coverage seems to come and go and usually very poor when and if it shows up.Was this review helpful to you?
I do not get any bars of reception and can use my phone only away from home which will result in purchasing a differant make of phone.Was this review helpful to you?
