My wife and I moved to Rockingham County from New Hanover county (from Wilmington NC to Eden NC.) We both have Samsung Note 5 phones, but considering the fact that Eden is still a little town with less than 12,000 people, we expected our data would drop to 3G coverage once entering this area; 3G coverage was actually optimistic, as we felt we may see the occasional "1X" or even "No Service." Surprisingly, the entire County is covered by reliable 4G-LTE coverage (so far as of living here 7 weeks and using our phones extensively during the process.) Kudos to Verizon for properly covering this "hole in the wall" area. ***NOTE: there is a brief area between Eden and Martinsville VA (on Hwy. 87N / S) where coverage drops to an old 3G tower, but you never lose reception. I'm a former Nextel user, and from my experience with Verizon over the last 10 years, I'll never leave. They are expensive, but I'm willing to pay more for ONE reason: coverage everywhere I go.Was this review helpful to you?

Since Verizon has taken over the Alltel service area the reception has gone from perfect to either no receiption or poor (you usually can hear about every third word.)Was this review helpful to you?
I left Verizon 5 years ago for poor service and reception. Went with Alltel and liked everything about them, including the coverage area and reception. Now Verizon has messed that up. My contract is up in three months and I will be going with another carrier.Was this review helpful to you?
Since the merger of Verizon and Alltel the service has diminished to the level of no service in most areas. I have tried numerous phones with only minimal improvement. While on a business trip to California I only had to charge my phone one day because it was not constantly searching for a signal. Why is Verizon not required to inform the public that as a result of the merger they sold off the old Alltel towers In Rockingham Co to private investors and they lease coverage for this area from US Cellular! Verizon will never move to the top of the tower for their customers as long as they choose to lease coverage!Was this review helpful to you?
