I was told over ten years ago that I would have 4G service at my address. I have had at least 5 different phones and 3 MiFi devices all sold saying they will provide me with 4 G service. I have payed in excess of $200.00 per month for two cell phones and a MiFi device. they lock you into a contract then forget you. I have called about every six months about the poor service. Oh, "were working on it". They now say "your in a marginal area". They want your money but don't provide what they say they are going to provide. If you need service between Wake Forest and Henderson and your located more than a half mile east or west of US#1. Verizon service sucks.Was this review helpful to you?
I hate that I had to switch to Verizon but I couldn't get any service from T-Mobile in Youngsville or Creedmoor and as stated it is a scary place to drive at night without coverage only because its so rural the next gas station is far. T-Mobile stated they were building towers in Creedmoor and Henderson but currently its a drop zone. T- Mobile has unlimited data, talk and text. Verizon's data cost for using the GPS they love for you to go over the amount of data so you can eventually up grade $$ money for them. Basically you are paying for a piece of mind for driving at night and it cost.Was this review helpful to you?
Have AT&T service and have no signal at my house in the Woodcroft Subdivision off Sid Mitchell. Use to have Verizon and it worked fair but was too expensive. I went with Puretalk for 10 bucks a month and they use the AT&T 2G towers.Was this review helpful to you?
Tested with two different premium brand phones. Reception may be better (or worse) Inside other apartment buildings. For those who are consider using their Verizon cell phone with as your primary, or only, residential phone, it is possible that you will not be able to make calls, unless standing outside. Unless you plan on living outside of your apartment, it is likely you will miss incoming calls.Was this review helpful to you?
I have terrible single. Got worse after I purchased my S3. Sprint made me pay for an airwave, even though I was told I would be reimbursed (never was). It helps some times, but many times I don't even pull my phone out because there is little to no signal. Lately when I drive from Raleigh to Youngsville down capital I drop in and out of service frequently and experience a crazy amount of dropped calls. I would not recommend Sprint for anyone who is north of 540. People who visit with Version service seems to be the only ones who have signal in our area (especially in spring and summer when the foliage is back).Was this review helpful to you?
Coverage is pretty good. Even indoors, I get two bars, which on most digital phones is pretty good. Coverage is still only 3G here, but at least it works.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is horrible and customer service is worse. Whether I'm in the house, or in my car, calls are dropped both on Holding Young and Cedar Creek Roads.Was this review helpful to you?
Alltel / Verizon have the best coverage for these more rural areas. Just gotta make sure you have a phone with good ratings from it's antenna! Once we switched to our Blackberrys we've had the best signal every and haven't dropped or missed a call yet! Visitors to our home that don't have Alltel or Verizon never get service or it's a horrible reception. Sprint works out here, but they are on / off because of tower signals crossing? At least that was the excuse they gave my Mom. She's switching back to Alltel as soon as her contract expires.Was this review helpful to you?
We've had Sprint, Cingular and Alltel and Alltel by far had the best coverage. We are in the back of our neighborhood and our house sits lower than the street level. Once we changed our phones from Razors to HTC Touch - we had the WORST coverage! Not only at our house - but everywhere! Their antenna stink! Switched to a Blackberry and have not lost / miss a call since!Was this review helpful to you?
Reception poor at best - 0-1 bars in building, must go outside to make or receive calls, or dropped call is guaranteed. 1 Bar outside on a good day, but dropped calls still likely. Same problem with Nokia 6235i previously. Alltel needs to improve service for all of this area - co-workers on Verizon report similar, but slightly better reception (not surprising, since Alltel and Verizon supposedly have a shared roaming aggreement) - Nextel is definitely better in Youngsville, according to observed co-worker use here.Was this review helpful to you?
