Phone is a LG enlighten... No bars. No internet.. 47 meter mast tower >1 mile away. 147 meter tower >6 miles away... Tech said it was PINE TREES... DUH.. This is the forest and if your engineer didn't account for PINE TREES, Guess losing 8 contracts and $10G a year isn't worth fixing the problem... Waiting for the last 4 contracts to expire... Last update bounced off of a US CELLULAR tower... BF also has Verizon service, BUT he has a Samsung Charge... 3 bars no dropped calls..Tired of paying for service I only get 50% of the time..wish I only had to pay 50%of the bill..

Calls drop out. some don't ring through. Some text messages take forever or don't go through. Have to go to certain rooms to make calls from home, or go outside.

Coverage since this summer has been disappointing to say the least. Many dropped calls. We average one to two bars in our home. Rarely will get a three bar signal. Less than pleased at this time. Looking at other carriers

Call quality is great, 4g is super slow compared to nation averages. 3g as well. But why wouldn't you be on wifi when you are at home anyway?

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Sts Delight Church Rd. | Hwy. 17N, New Bern, NC 28560 |

My neighbors call my front porch my "cell phone booth" because I have to run outside to answer my cell... if it does in fact ring. I can rarely receive a call inside, maybe 2 out of 10. Dead as a wedge for the next mile north, then picks back up at Aurora Rd. Otherwise I never lose signal. It's annoying that my one dead spot is inside my home, where you'd obviously spend alot of time.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Taberna, New Bern, NC 28562 |

All our phone calls get dropped. When we call it does't connect or takes ages to connect then drops the call or it says only emergency calls can be made. Or it says system is not available. This is strange as we never had trouble until the late spring. We used it in florida and had no trouble. So what gives? We have complained and they say we are working on it. But of course they want ther money every month and no service.

Have to stand out in the middle of the street to get one bar. I really hope that AT&T turns on 3G coverage on the 16th of August like they are saying and that it improves not only data speeds but call quality and reliability as well.

Have good service most of the time unless I am on 70 headed to Havelock by the Forest Ranger sign and the Stately Pines area. No service there at all. Wish there was 3G service in New Bern like there is in Havelock.

AT&T is horrible service int his area. I am trying to get a new service, but unable to tell which one will be good for the James City area of New Bern. AT&T customer service is awful, as well.

Seriously bad. In my opinion AT&T has the worst cell phone network in the history of man kind. They feed you lots of lame excuses about reception. Voice and data are simply Horrible. I was with Sprint for close to 10 years and made the mistake of assuming AT&T was a good company.

Alltel

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Stately Pines, New Bern, NC 28560 |

We had Alltel for about 15 years, and our reception was great and the service was good. Since taken over by Verizon, the reception is poor, calles are dropped and incoming calls are missed. Their prices for comparable programs on Alltel are priced higher. I am going to get rid of Verizon and go elsewhere with my two phones.

I occasionally get a call come through when I am in my house on my cell phone, but I can usually sit by my window or on my porch and get at least 2 bars. When I am on the phone outside or driving from Hwy. 70, I never have a problem getting a signal. I can drive all the way from 95 to the coast on the major roads and have at least 3 bars nearly the whole time, but lose service as soon as I get onto the Air Station or near the Croatan Forest. I also receive a signal in Wal-Mart, Food Lion and other stores that my previous phone wouldn't.

Verizon is a real let down out here - many dropped calls, minimal reception. On the plus side, if you call and complain they may let you out of the contract as it is a known bad coverage area. Terrible on Cherry Point - I miss 10-20% of all calls at a minimum.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Glenburnie, New Bern, NC 28562 |

Alltel's service is awesome. I've been a customer for 10 years and travel 90% of the time in Eastern North Carolina. I just upgraded last year to the Blackberry 8830 and LOVE the service! I have co-workers that have US Cellular and for customers who need data / broadband service Alltel network is far superior than US Cellular's. I can view attachments and surf the web in a quarter of the time US Cellular customers can and on a more reliable network! I truly can say I have had very few dropped calls and you could not pay me to get out of my carrier.

Occasionally one bar, usually none. Switched from Cingular because they had even worse coverage and terrible customer service, but VZW has only marginally better coverage (and locks down their phones). If I were to do it again, I would go with Alltel.
