2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | White Road / Alamosa Off Gordon, Wilmington, NC 28411 |

VZW: I have a Straight Talk Samsung Galaxt Crntura that runs on VZW towers. I dont get but 1-2 bars at home but I still never drop calls. Anywhere. AT&T: AT&Ts 3G / 4G signal is 1-2 bars here but its enough... data and calls are still usuable indoors. You will want to avoid them in Leland, Southport, Porters Neck, off Greenville Loop, Pine Grove, UNCW, River Road, Castle Hayne, Bellevue, Delco, Lake Wacamaw, or Burgaw. T-Mobile: their prices are competitive and so are their deals but avoid them in NC! Theres 5 bars in the White Road / Alamosa area, but you will want to avoid them in Leland, Southport, Porters Neck, off Greenville Loop, Pine Grove, UNCW, River Road, Castle Hayne, Bellevue, Delco, Lake Wacamaw, or Burgaw. Youll suffer. Am not familiar with Sprint or US Cellular in NC. DO NOT GO WITH AT&T / TMOBILE IN BRUNSWICK PENDER ONSLOW NEW HANOVER OR BLADEN COUNTIES. Straight Talk has Androids and iPhones that run on VZW for $45 / mo. unlimited everything. Theres no downside. Save some money!

I always have between 4and 5 bars of signal on my iPhone 4S, and have dropped one call in 6 years. My friends all have Verizon, and their data signal is very slow and I always have better signal than them.

No bars for T-Mobile service at my home. We live in Marsh Oaks, a well established neighborhood right off Market Street.

I have had service with AT&T for at least one whole contract and they are completely trash. I drop calls every call made. and also 1-2 bars all the time. DONT GO WITH AT&T! Im currently in the process of switching to Sprint, because of better phones and also pretty ok service.

In Feb 2011, we moved exactly one mile from our former home. The former home had perfect reception, but this one absolutely SUCKS! We got a Microcell, but it has helped very little. Our calls take multiple attempts to go through and heaven forbid we forget and walk outside. I get better reception standing in the middle of Wal-Mart than I do in the middle of my living room. All of this while the ATT coverage map shows us in an area of Best reception. HA!

AT&T turned on LTE in Wilmington, NC. Not sure when but noticed 08 / 18 / 2012 11:50am it was in couple miles of UNCW. Great reception, and fast data speeds down 18.5Mb up 7.5Mb

I have been with US Cellular for many years and very pleased. With the cost of everything today, I have got to shop for a cheaper carrier, perhaps at walmart. I tried Alltel a few years back and hated it. US Cellular works great Myrtle grove and Greenville Loop area too.

Never get more than, AT&T ranks this as good in maps. Went in today to find out what they can do to increase signal, they suggests the microcell. So let's see, I have a cell phone which at home Ned's to connect wirelessly to a modem to my Internet to make or get a call? Wow. And it's $150. Ouch. Anyway, at is great elsewhere in the country and I have been around with this phone. So it means AT&T is doing a poor job of connecting its customers. Tis is why communications was deregulated and multiple companies are in the mix. In Japan, I could get a signal anywhere. In Ecuador I could get a signal on the top of a mountain. What the.?

My service has been terrible here (at home)of late. Most of time, I get one lousy bar. Every once in a while, it may go up to three, but that's not often. I hardly even bother going on Facebook, Safari or any of my apps, because I don't have the patience! It's driving me nuts!

Rarely drop below to bars anywhere in town. I never hardly get full but mostly 3 to 4 bars. always have 3g service with no problems. never had any calls dropped. but very upset there's no 4 g service in our area yet. therefore having a 4 g phone is useless.

No issues along Myrtle Grove Rd. and Masonboro Loop Rd. Area around Greenville Loop Rd. / Pine Grove Rd. intersection is bad though. Mostly great in Wilmington. Makes sense since Alltel had awesome regional coverage, then Verizon bought them out.

Signal here goes from 5 bars to zero in a matter of seconds or practically every time that you dial. Recently the service around the remainder of the town is also extremely bad. I know that AT&T have been changing their patterns in this area over the last 12 months. They really need to publish a more accurate and true map of their coverage.

I had T -Mobile but got released because their service was terrible,ie. dropped calls,couldn't receive or send calls from within my stick built house.I now have AT&T service and its also terrible.Only had this service 2 weeks.In house I get dropped calls,zero bars.Have to go outside on porch to get 1 bar.They will not admit service is terrible,they say lack of towers and others in area being worked on.Will not provide booster antennia to me free of charge.They tell me a booster will cost me $149.00.I asked for a free booster antennia and they said no.I said I pay them $120.00 a month for this service that doesn't work.I asked them will they provide a credit when my service doesn't work.They said no.The only thing they keep on telling me is that I have 30 days to get out of the contract.If I go beyond 30 days they say that I will have accepted this service as is.They also told me that AT&T does not garantee cell phones to work inside building.I have had cell phones services for about 15 years and they used to always work inside my home.My wife and I decided today to cancel our contract with AT&T and just rely on our house phone like we used to do.
