I have tried many carriers--Consumer Cellular, Trac Phone, AT&T. Tracphone worked well at first, over 15 years ago, and then no connection. I had US Cellular before Tracphone, so I decided to give them a try, and voila! always have bars, and good service. I have a Samsung flip phone and pay about $45. with tax and fees. I have only voice and 250 mins, but nights after 7 and all weekend calls, incl. long distance are free.Was this review helpful to you?
There is some spotty coverage in the more rural areas but works great for the most part and the price is good. Has gotten better since LTE became available. I like t-mobile.Was this review helpful to you?
I think Sprint has made more improvements than any other carrier. If you live in the woods it might not work but works very good in and around townWas this review helpful to you?
this site is outdated all these carriers are better than they used to beWas this review helpful to you?
It's not the carrier's fault. T-Mobile is crippled outside urban / suburb areas here pretty much because apparently they can't get the 700mhz spectrum in the area, which despite their advertising means they haven't done much in WNC. People here say "oh its because we are in the mountains". That is BS. This whole region is almost in the dark ages of telecom thanks to lousy government decisions and uneducated people, sad to say. It will not get any better in Asheville ever, in fact as more people move here all the networks will just get congested. Sprint has enough spectrum everywhere but building cell towers is frowned upon here so guess what, you people that live in the boonies that are forced to use US cellular even though it sucks in 95% of the country only have yourselves to blame. So you all get to pay more for the same thing. Enjoy living in Weaverville when there are 50,000 people trying to connect to one cell tower lol. Then everyone will blame the carriers again because they won't have learned a thing. Or maybe they will, prove me wrong. Bottom line: the people have essentially kept the market from being competitive.Was this review helpful to you?
I have rarely had any reception issues here in Asheville. When I do it's typically due to the mountains but typically this means dropping down to 3G from LTE. Data speeds are pretty good as well.Was this review helpful to you?
U.S.Cellular started out relativly alright..2 bars on my phone, but, now my calls are dropped and I have to climb a hill to make a call..or answer one. This is annoying. Verizon won't work here nor will at&t... wish I could find a cell phone service that works here.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is mostly good, in town. Pretty shotty in the mountains. My BIGGEST complaint is customer service. If you have a problem with your phone, bill, want to up grade... .forget about it! The agents talk in circles, and are completely ineffective at helping customers resolve any issues. It took two hours ( no exaggerating) to order two up grade phones and then they sent the wrong ones. There so called "customer service supervisor" had no resolution either. GOOD BYE SPRINT after 15 years.Was this review helpful to you?
I'm staying at my dad's not more than 8 minutes from town and I have no service, yet when I'm at my moms in weaverville way out in the middle of nowhere, I have full service... Wtf please helpWas this review helpful to you?
(NO)Go Phone. Bought ATT Go Phone and assured reception for Haw Creek Asheville NC) at time of sale at ATT store. Told by go phone customer service that their was a tower outage that should be fixed in 2 days. 5 days later - no coverage. ATT store charges $35 dollar restock fee on $38 phone even though no service. Going back to Verizon that has 4G at my house.Was this review helpful to you?
