Sugar springs reception has been degrading over the last two years. Called Verizon and was told that no one else has complained. I cannot make a call without it dropping.

We moved here in August and got fairly good reception. An update pushed to our phones I think it was in November, and now our reception is poor at best. Tried new phones, but that did not work. Battery life of phones also went way down as it is searching for signal quite often.

Loyal Alltel user with fair reception until Verizon merger - then 0 reception due to tower sales(?). Neighbor had AT&T with 1-2 bars. Bought AT&T and have had 3 phones over 4 years with them. Winter reception is usually 1 bar, Summer, with leaves on the trees, drops reception to 0 bars in parts of the house to 1 bar max in a few "sweet spots" in the yard. Walking north 1 / 4 mile results in 3 bars and enough strength to get / send SMS - which is completly impossible at the house. I now use Google Voice over our Satellite Internet and our WiFi for my voicemail and SMS when I'm home, AT&T is that bad. Since our internet is Satellite-based, using AT&T's Mobile Tower Solution results in massive lag in voice conversations. Still stuck in the 90's here in the Gladwin Historic Preservation Zone. Oh for a few more towers!

Like many earlier comments, my family's Nextel phones stop service about 8 miles in any direction from where we are at. In fact, sometimes need to drive down M30 all the way to US10 to pick up a signal. Since Sprint is now going to drop Nextel, it would be nice if a Sprint tower could be put up around the Secord area, which would be plenty close for us.

T-mobile Roaming off AT&T towers Most the time. T-Mobile has indicated after over 1 1 / 2 yr service and two lines that one of the lines is being audited for roaming off the T-Mobile towers, to my knowledge and at time of my getting service, I brought to T-mobiles attention I seen no coverage on map for them or tower, they said well try and see if it don't work send back no cost. Well I'm being told today one of my lines are being cancled over roaming off tower! How can one number be and not the other? and I think its for reason of cost! The merge with AT&T fell thru! They giving me till March 7th they said to find new provider! It doesn't seem RIGHT! But mostly Gladwin is AT&T towered! I've had good service with AT&T and T-mobile, Sprint merged to AT&T NEXTEL SUX always has! Altell is Sprint. So basicly your working with either,, AT&T or Verizin or T-Mobile. T-Mobile has the best G coverage and surprising spots that you wouldn't expect, they have the cheapest cost for the same plans as all providers! AT&T Customer service sucks and like to steal your money and disconnect you if a second late on bill.

Verizon Sucks and not just their service. Their fees / costs are ridiculous. I've had Verizon for years, and maybe I am finally getting the picture that I'm throwing money away. What is the solution... not sure. I haven't heard good news about any carrier providing good service in our area. But buyer beware if you choose Verizon. Try a prepaid plan first, because they will suck you dry with their plan fees, costs, etc. and you won't have good service to boot.

Started with Cellular One and was very happy with the service. Bought out by AT&T and service was good. I was able to get a make and receive calls even in my basement. Last few months service has been getting worse. Have to try 3 or 4 times to call out and calls frequently drop out even when I have 2 or 3 bars. Getting more and more unhappy as time goes on.

Att sells you saying they have coverage. In sugar springs there is very little. You might get lucky to make a call but it will most likely drop; and forget about trying to go online or text a picture it will never happen. As for AT&T marks the spot well been sending for almost 2 years my entire contract no improvement. Looking for suggestion on a carrier with good coverage on this area. Sugar springs is a great community with a golf club I know there are cell phone users. I just need to find the right carrier to connect!

I had Alltel and thought that when Verizon bought them, but got worse. I see they put a new antenna on the Tower on north M-18 near Wertz Rd. maybe it operates differently than the Alltel. Sell real estate and can't get calls in the Sugar Springs office about 2 miles from the tower in a straight line. Looking at AT&T plans, but I think service won't be better until more towers are installed.

Loved the phone, It has 3G Hot Spot capability. Nice when it worked, but very erratic signals. If I put the phone on top of the refrigerator, sometimes I'd get a couple of bars! Or outside on the picnic table. Anyway, I took the three day trial and had to return everything, including a booster antenna, that didn't help. The West Branch store was very helpful, too bad Verizon doesn't put another tower in the area. Maybe more people should try the phones out, then when Verizon (and others) keep getting them returned, they'll fix the situation! Just make sure you follow the return instructions to the letter, or you'll get burned! (my brother was misled by sales people at another store in Gladwin, and is being hounded for termination fees). Our Broadband choices are just as crappy up here!

Switched from Nextel to Verizon, expecting Alltel purchase to aid reception. Phone is a strong performer elsewhere, but is below average at Secord Lake. Works OK in yard, but isn't usable indoors. Reprograming doesn't help. Until someone builds a decent tower in the area, cell phones will remain marginal at best. Too bad. A 6.0 rating? Not at my cottage. Still better than Nextel's "dead zone" at 0.0!

Have had Alltel for two years, and became a Verizon customer with the purchase of Alltel last year. We are not far from town, and are not in an incredibly rural area - yet our reception is absolutely terrible. The Alltel authorized agent in town sold us on tethered internet, and we're lucky if it even goes above dial up speed. We can connect and receive phone calls and text messages, but calls will randomly drop and sometimes we will lose service all together for a few seconds. I was not expecting to be unable to get DSL (next door neighbor has it), Charter internet (they stopped down the road) or decent cell phone service. Feels like we are trapped in the 90s still.

I have a GSM TracFone, so near as I can tell, it uses the AT&T network. Rarely do I get reception inside the house. And minimal signal if I go out to the end of my dock on Secord Lake! Lots of complaints about the signals on all the carriers up this way. I did some researching on the Internet and found the locations of the cell towers. Verizon looks like they have more towers near me, but I'm still about 13 miles between them. One near Alger and another on M-18 north of Gladwin.

I am looking to buy a cottage in this area. I have Verizon and was using my phone's GPS to navigate there. It failled to connect for navigation and there was no signal to make a call unless I stood at the edge of the lake. Even then it was not a signal that would support a call of more than a minute. I even reprogrammed my roaming capabilities and saw no improvement even doing that. Since then, checking coverage maps for all the major carriers showed that none of these companies has service in this area. Some company is missing a market share in that area.

One would think service would improve over the last 13 yrs... .not so much. Still stinks just as it did then. In Gladwin City is OK and West Branch is OK, but anything in between... .don't bet your life on it. Better to send smoke signals.
