U.S. Cellular coverage in Wilmington, NC is great and hard to beat. AT&T, Verizon, and others have dead spots between Wilmington and Southport, but U.S. Cellular does not. I've had the carrier for 14 years. If you are looking for the best coverage in Southeastern North Carolina, I would highly recommend U.S. Cellular over the others.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint service sucks in this area, I am using VOIP calling to bypass, but nuts that this area so close to Wilmington still can NOT get a decent signal. Any provider that offers international roaming that has proper coverage I will chose.Was this review helpful to you?

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!Was this review helpful to you?

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.Was this review helpful to you?
No bars for T-Mobile service at my home. We live in Marsh Oaks, a well established neighborhood right off Market Street.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
Coverage horrible for Wilmington, Hampstead, and Jacksonville area, even with business preferred account!Was this review helpful to you?
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!Was this review helpful to you?
