I generally get good reception just about everywhere unless in a building then I have to step outside, which I've gotten to expect. At home, however, most of my calls are in and out or lost altogether. I have to l to walk around while I talk to get any kind of reception. Not having phone access is scary to me. I can't imagine how scary that would be for the elderly. I would not want my parents to live in an area where they could not get reception in the event for an emergency. It's just not safe. I thought Verizon had the best reception. Do all phone companies have trouble with reception In this area?

My calls are fine, but my data sucks. I had Verizon in the past and it was fine. I have a pre-paid cell with them now and the data is terriable! At $70 a month and living across from their amphiteather I should have great reception. Also there is a tower less then a mile away. Calls are fine data in area sucks. Dont waste yr money. In going back.to Boost!

I get a decent signal at work in 27609, but no service at my house in 27616. I have an iPhone and have had AT&T for 10 years, but I'm going verizon. I need coverage inside the house!

Within our home, we have extremely poor cell reception. Tried to remedy by having professional cell boosters installed in our home and this brought the coverage from non-existent to sketchy coverage at best! I hate trying to talk to people and constantly hearing "You're breaking up!" So confusing why this particular area stinks in ATT coverage.

When I'm inside my apartment I get absolutely nothing... I have to walk all the way to the main house of my apartment complex if I want to make a phone call. Is this Verizon's fault or my apartment's? I never see anyone ELSE having to walk outside on their phone.

Lived in Raleigh for 2+ years. I have never had problems with reception except when I am inside a mall or other bigger store. I have not tried the other major carriers here so I have nothing to compare it to but I am happy with the service.

I've never had any problems with my Verizon cell phone in my home or anywhere in Raleigh. Trying to decide whether to switch to AT&T though, since the bill would be less.

Verizon seems to have the best coverage "in general" for our area north of the 540, but at our house it's only 1-2 bars. I've asked others who had Sprint or AT&T while at our house and they usually have 0-1 bar. Wish we had other options. Verizon bill is 40$ more / month than AT&T would be.

I have been with Sprint for 2 years and I have had bad reception the entire time. I am constantly dropping calls. I am now looking for another carrier but I will definitely be switching.

After three months of terrible reception and multiple complaints to verizon- they have now told me the reception in my area is what they consider "marginal". This means there is a 50 / 50 chance of good reception... looks like I will have to change carriers.

I tried Sprint's "unlimited data" plan for a few days. I can receive 3G but not 4G, so I decided to go no further with my phone service. Phone call reception was fine.

My reception is really good here and everywhere else I go around the country. Even inside the concrete bunker where I work in Chapel Hill I'm able to talk (with fewer bars). My only complaint is the exorbitant cost of smartphone service by ATT, Verizon, and the rest. Would love to try one of the MVNO providers, but fear I won't have the great reception I'm accustomed to.

I've been with Sprint for 3 of the 4 years Iv'e lived in Raleigh, and on average, I receive about 2 signal bars throughout the city. I'm constantly being told calls made to me are going directly to voicemail, and my phone is roaming while I'm at my office in Cary. Sprint has the absolute WORST voice and data signal in Raleigh / Durham from my research.

I had Sprint for years. I thought it was the location of my house why I never had bars, seeing as Verizon users, other Sprint users, and T-Mobile users never got good service here. Then, I switched to AT&T two years ago and WOW what a difference - I have great service here! [And pretty much everywhere I go]

I'm extremely dissappointed. I still have no data after reporting 3 times. I still have no coverage at home or in my office (Cary) and barely in between. Very bad service, support and coverage.

I must be one of the lucky ones... where I reside I never have any issues... never have I had drop call issues... no connectivity issues with data either.. Verizon is pricey... but worth it... I work tech support for Sprint... thank god I'm not a customer with them..they have numerous issues with their network constantly.

Horrible reception, but it may be because none of the major carriers have any towers in SE Raleigh.
