3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Brookshire Freeway | Independence Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28212 |

Alltel has been great I have no real complaints. The rates are the best! The one thing I notice is I will usually drop a call where Independence meets the Brookshire freeway. When I dial right back the call always goes through so it might be a cell that's not doing a proper hand off.

I commute to Uptown daily via Providence Rd.and there are huge dead spots where I have no bars. My service is fine when I am at home, but there is clearly no cell towers around the corridor to uptown.

The only part of campus where I get any decent cell phone reception is in and around the Cone building to which I must walk when I need a strong connection. I am definitely switching to Verizon or Cingular

I moved from Chgo where reception was great. Here, when I am home it SUCKS! Dropped calls, missed calls and diverted calls. When I called Cingular they said - didn't know what was going on. Tower search says it should be good but... So if this is what the ad means "fewest dropped calls" it should add "with most diverted you'll never get the call".

Cingular cell service in and around the western portion of Charlotte, among every other place I drive is horrible. Consistently get dropped calls and periods no audio and / or broken voices. Pathetic service. On Wilkinson Blvd, Little Rock Rd, Rt 160, Mt Holly Huntersville Rd... Everywhere I have ever been.

Reception in the Sardis Forest Subdivision is spotty at best. On my street there is NO reception. Not just for Cingular but for other carriers as well. We drop all calls when driving into the neighborhood.

Reception is random from poor to ok. Used to have a Sanyo and never had any problems at home. The Sanyo had a pullout antenna, the new LG doesn't. Sprint is being helpful and trying to fix problem. I think it is a poor phone and am switching back to a Sanyo

Moved to charlotte from florida and T-Mobile has only roaming coverage. Roaming service should be provided by Cingular, but the SunCom signal keeps interfering. Teh result is my phone keeps bouncing between Cingular and SunCom. I miss incoming calls and often cannot make outboud calls. Not even manually setting the network resolves the issue.

Just moved near UNC Charlotte's campus and coming from Cameron, NC where there was hardly anything there, Alltel still prevailed and had fantastic service there. Here in Charlotte the service is just the same, crystal clear calls along with the EVDO technology offered here in Charlotte. This service is great, and I recommend Alltel to anyone who is looking for a dedicated, realiable celluar phone service. Pass the word around this company is truly about "loving" their customers. This is not surprising to be roaming on the Alltel network and still have excellent coverage. From Florida to New York to Texas Alltel has always provided me service that has never let me down. Consider switching to Alltel.
