4 iPhones in 9 months, plus 2 LG octanes, 2 Motorola W755's, several LG Revere VZ no contract phones, a Samsung "range extender", and we have been assured by VZ that we are "surrounded by their cell towers". Why do we continue to experience an unbelievable amount of dropped calls, the all too frequent inability to send or receive text an / or media messages, and, without moving a muscle, watch the "bars" on each phone go from 4 to 1 to none at any given place in our home, yard, and the entire neighborhood at any given time? Our neighbor is a retired VZ executive, and she finally gave up and now has a no contract Tracphone, as do most of our neighbors. We all have lost track of the countless calls to VZ tech services (no answers there!), and are resigned to waiting until our contracts expire. It seems we are all living in a 1 mile VZ "dead zone". NEVER AGAIN!

Reception sucks and calls are dropped. Call quality is terrible. Sprint wanted me to pay another 120$ for a booster! Don't buy Sprint!

verizon coverage is perfect all over Charlotte. I have an older phone, and I often get service where people with AT&T do not. A+

Does not matter how many times I use "Mark to Spot" to report my issues to AT&T. Which has almost been a year now. AT&T has done NOTHING. Cell coverage by the Charlotte airport with AT&T is very poor and that is putting it mildly!

US Cellular

My husband and I have a 2nd home in Mint Hill and travel there 1-2 times a month. We never have a dropped call with our US Cellular service even though we are roaming because there is no US cellular service in the Charlotte area. Our friends who live in Mecklenburg Co. Borrow our phone to make calls when we are there because their services with AT&T. Verizon, Cricket ect is so bad that they are always dropping calls or have no service. When I called US Cellular to find out what the solution would be if we moved to Mint Hill permanently I was told by corporate that I would be denied US Cellular continuesd service when we moved because it would cost the company too much money to pay for 100% roaming.There is no plans to ever bring US Cellular to the area. So we either don't move or settle for crappy service like everyone else we know who already lives there. There is something grossly wrong with that picture. Don't you think.

Dropped calls all day long. We are constantly asking callers to repeat themselves the signal is horrible. We are no longer under contract thus we are shopping around for better service. We have been with Sprint a very long time but cannot continue with such bad reception service.

Horrible reception. Inside or outside it is poor. Cell signal really drops as you drive down Winding River Dr. into Phase 2.

I started with Verizon in Florida and could not get reception inside my house. Moved here and do not seem to have too much a problem. I can get and receive call inside and outside of the house. However, recently I was told that by someone they could not get through. It's a shame a city the size of Charlotte has such terrible phone reception among it carriers. I have been reading all the comments and none of the carriers seem to be outstanding.

I can't believe T-Mobile is rated highest in Charlotte. I have T-Mobile (unfortunately), and where I live (around Kilborne Park on the east side), there is a reception, at most, one bar. I'm talking about being outside. If you're indoor (just in a house for example), forget it, there is absolutely no reception, anywhere in the entire area. It's ridiculous.
