Since August my phone has been going from AT&T 4G to Off Network 3G which is considerably slower and unreliable. According to the coverage map, Bangor is fully covered by AT&T 4G. Even if I am connected to a partner network, to be provided with 3G service is unacceptable. I have reported the problem multiple times and no improvements have been made.

I moved to Bangor from NH and I still have a 4G phone / data plan from T-Mobile that worked awesome where I used to live. Obviously it's a bummer that T-Mobile only has 2G service in Maine, but the pricing is excellent, giving me "real" cell service instead of a prepaid or no contract plan. I only pay $58 / mo (Total with tax) for unlimited talk / text / data and 500mb of high speed data. Since I can't get 4G here I don't notice after they cut me back after 500mb. The reason I haven't switched is because of the wifi calling option. Nobody else has it and I can talk through the internet with my phone when I'm at home.

I have two T-Mobile phones. One In Ocala, FL. The other in Brewer, Me. Service is well below standard in both places. I will change carries in the very near future. In my home about 7 miles SW of Ocala I get 1 bar or less. Not very professional. Same in Brewer, Maine. JM

I've been with T-Mobile for awhile now. Still only edge here in Bangor. My last phone had WiFi calling which worked great in the apartment. To be fair I always have good coverage wherever I go in Bangor though its still only 2G so no video and even streaming music isn't that great. Thank goodness for the free wi-fi around town. I am currently using the HTC Windows Phone 8X which does not have wi-fi calling at the moment. So I use Google Voice when at my apartment. T-Mobile has good coverage in Bangor at 2G speeds and the price is right. You just have to supplement with wi-fi which is available all over the city and most people have at home.

DO NOT BUY A T-MOBILE PLAN if you live in Maine. I pay over $100 / month and my 4g smartphone, t-mobile, has never once gone over2g. Calls get dropped in this day and age? They do at T-Mobile and they tell you that they will check the towers, blah blah blah and it is always the same answer--"we have spotty service in that area, and then a long song and dance. I pay an extra 8 bucks am month for security... you can make your phone alarm ring to be able to find it. Only problem is they have HIDDEN access to it on their website so you can't use it! Did I mention that I sit next to people with videos on their phones, movies... I can't get those things..never once tho I am paying for them and have a 4g phone! I am going AT&T next time because a SALESPERSON told me it was best! NO T-Mobile in MAINE unless you want to be very very unhappy.

US Cellular

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Between Ohio and Union St., Bangor, ME 04401 |

US Cellular has excellent reception and the best customer service for sure. The only places I've found that don't have great reception is deep in the woods up north, but I don't think ANY companies cover those places! We travel quite extensively around the US too and I always have reception everywhere we go.

Even with my Microcell at home, different buildings once step inside the building the signals falls and can't receive calls or pull data. Can't wait to my contract to finish to switch for a better coverage. Have been with ATT for a long number of years since the first iPhone, now iPhone is going to more wireless companies.

You people are so whiny! How did we ever manage to live without cellphones or for that matter landline telephones for that matter? Complain! complain! complain! The technology has not been around that long, but most are too short-sighted and impatient to realize that. Just look back 10 years in cellphone technology and see how much things have changed. Due to the greed of all involved, towers and transponder leases / agreements are not free nor cheap for these companies to negotiate, and it takes a lot of money and time for them to increase their service areas. Most choose not to expand unless there are enough potential subscribers to make their bottom line, and the Maine woods being what they are, uncrowded and fairly pristine, there are not enough subscribers. Just be patient.

I always have 2-3 out of 4 bars reception in Bangor Maine. Never dropped a call, very rarely have calls that don't come in well. I have no complaints. Given, 4 bars would probably be better, but I never have problems with 2 bars.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Kenduskeag Ave., Bangor, ME 04401 |

Bangor really needs to fix signal on Kenduskeag because there are some dead spots along Kenduskeag Such as the Intersection of Kenduskeag and Husson. I wish AT&T would get in gear and get 3g up here because places up in VT get them Bangor should at least get or should actually in fact already have 3g but, alase still nothing to be heard about 3g coming our way.

As long as I stay in Bangor, I don't have reception problems, but traveling out of area it depends on which way I turn my head if I can maintain one or two bars!

if you can get a signal east of bangor on or around rt 9 from AT&T your lucky. most signal comes from unicel (roaming partner) 5 bars until AT&T finds your phone and reprograms it to ignore the roaming partner. Then you get 0 or 1 bar.

My wife and I switched to TMobile from unicel due to traveling all over the nation. T-Mobile is great for that, but in Maine it is random and spotty. There are spots in Bangor where I will drop calls, etc. Then again we are in Maine... rather than Mass. etc I am thinking about switching to USC now that my contract is up!

Have now had US Cellular four years. Reception is perfect. Rarely if ever can't call or receive. Travel throughout county and state daily. Out of state relatives with sprint, Verizon and AT&T use my phone cause theirs won't work. Biggest negative, phone selection is terrible and expensive. Razr was $160 less at other carriers than I paid at USC. Free incoming and messaging less at USC.

I moved to Downing Rd and found that I had no signal. I complained to T-Mobile and they sold me a new phone. I still get zero bars. Not enough towers in town.

Reception was okay til Summer 2006, now dropped calls, can't make calls, 0 bars in places where friends have full signal. Will go from No Service to 5 bars to No service in seconds... Cancelling the service.

Reception is spotty at best. I can get 5 bars if I travel half a mile towards town. This is sad because a Verizon phone at the same location will get 5 bars.
