I moved here a year ago from Charlotte. The first thing I noticed was the slow to no internet speeds. I called and was told by T-Mobile that they were building a tower. The speeds would improve from the existing and CURRENT 2G speed. Well now not only is the internet slow but I now get poor reception. I drop calls all day, calls are dropped during conversations or in the process of placing a call. I haven't felt the need to have a land line. I have children and need phone service in case of Emergency and with T-Mobile I don't feel secure. I will now call and have a land line activated.Was this review helpful to you?
I have to go outside my house to carry on a conversation. Sometimes I have to walk up to the highest point in my yard to pick up a half way clear signal. This is very irritating !Was this review helpful to you?
We were promised 3 years ago by T-Mobile that by the end of the year we would have 4G. THEY LIED! Shelby is a major city in western NC. What is the problem? Little towns all around us have 4G. This is BULLCRAP! We pay for 4G and have for the last three years but don't have it. T-Mobile should give it's customers in Shelby NC. a Refund for misleading them. the T-Mobile store in Shelby NC. advertises 4G but dosen't even have access to it themselves. T-Mobile shouldn't even have a store where there is no 4G!Was this review helpful to you?
I have been with Alltel since 1996 and have had no problems until June 2011. Never had dropped calls, NOW I cant take a left from my driveway without roaming then I get no service until I get further into shelby. Still drop calls after that. Alltel tells me I am picking up onto Verizon towers in Shelby. Well if thats the case I dont want Alltel or Verizon, what company is the best????? After 15 years with Alltel I really dont want to switch but thinking Imay not have a choice.Was this review helpful to you?
My wife, sister, daughter-in-law and brother all have Verizon and they get much better reception at our house. I've been trying to find where my closest AT&T cell tower is in an online search but haven't had any luck. Can you please help me.Was this review helpful to you?
Motorola is the key to good reception. Cheap phones are just that. Don't expect good reception out in the sticks with cheap phones.Was this review helpful to you?
I signed up with Nextel after 6 yrs of waiting to get a better coverage deal. The signal still is only fair in my neighborhood. Wish I hadn't gotten back with a two yr contract figured it would be better now but is not. LOTS of dropped callsWas this review helpful to you?
Since Verizon merged with Alltel our reception has been horrible. Now we can't even make calls in or out from our home anymore. It's useless to us, when we do have service it's either one bar or it's in the 'extended network' so that kills any "IN" network mobile - to - mobile free airtime calls.Was this review helpful to you?
