Used to have T-Mobile, which had great prices and customer service but spotty reception. Have been with Verizon for 2 years now and LOVE their coverage. Not perfect (hence 4 stars), but generally very solid and reliable. I have a signal almost everywhere I go, including the wilderness on hikes. What I don't like is how expensive they are (thinking of switching), but you get what you pay for.

Not a big fan of Verizon due to their prices, but I drive all over central oregon for work and Sprint and T-Mobile were a joke for coverage, AT&T was descent and Verizon had coverage in almost all areas I visit. So I reluctantly stick with Verizon. Wish T-Mobile would get better coverage.

Something is seriously not right, as in fraud, and it needs to be fixed before an E911 call fails or someone is unable to communicate in an emergency. My iPhone 6 SE and 5s work great in other cities. The phone shows LTE connectivity but there is incredible data latency + dropped calls. I'm frequently unable to bring up basic web sites. It's as if you have a connection to the tower but insufficient bandwidth is provisioned from the tower onward. Bend currently has cell coverage worse than a 3rd world country.

Dropped calls left and right. Went 30 miles to la pine and had over 5 dropped calls just from bend in the time it took to get there. Let me just say I drive to Medford every night. Ya.thats a lot of dropped calls for this guy. Wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

Verizon has become almost unusable in Bend recently for months now. Lately I can hardly get any data service. Texts take forever to send, apps which use data can't load anything. I am constantly stuck on LTE model with an iphone 6. My daughter has an Iphone 4S and it get 3G with 3 vars while my iphone 6 gets 2 bars with LTE. Ridonk.

Needed to use navigation near Empire and could not connect to find the address. This is totally unacceptable right in town.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | West Bend Near Downtown (Delaware and Broadway Dr. | Near Delaware and Broadway Dr., Bend, OR 97701 |

Verizon Buyer BEWARE: I did copious amounts of research before switching from AT&T to Verizon (2 calls to reps, coverage map online, this forum, salesperson at store, word of mouth, etc.). To say that I regret making the change to Verizon is the understatement of the year. Had 1-2 bars when I got home and immediately let the rep know, was told to come back into the store which I did where they changed a few settings, but it was no better when I got back to my place near Delaware and Broadway Dr. in Bend by downtown. Made several calls, and finally got through to their "Tech support" after being on for an hour, they offered me 50% off a network extender, but that resulted in them only discounting by a third once billed and after several calls and lip service, telling me that they had no record of my calls / complaints (albeit I have a network extender in my possession, but no record of the agreement or my call) and somehow that is my problem. They did finally advise me to turn off my wireless while at home using phone and put my number on whitelist, other than that my time with customer service resulted in no real concession on their part. They told me there are further escalation paths if these issue persist as if all of my calls haven't escalated things enough using precious time to get a "utility" to work (i.e. they can strengthen the tower signal), but can do nothing more at this time. I use my phone a great deal (biz and personal matters) and can only hope that with the network extender (charged me $175), the changed settings and needing to turn my wireless off for phone calls to prevent them from dropping and multiple tries to get a call to go through, that I can somehow get "bearable" service while working from home 12 hours / day. I don't leave complaints like this, but I have been so amazed by the awful customer service (& I unfortunately deal with plenty of large companies with poor service, but this is a standout) and the fact that you can not trust whatever any of them tell you in those rare moments they seem like they care just a little (one customer service person told me to read the fine print, when I complained about how much diligence I put forth before switching only to get 1-2 bars after I activated). I never leave complaints, but I use forums like this as part of my decision process when googling cell service in Bend, OR and I want leave my experience on here, as they may have been decent before or in other areas, but I don't want anyone else to have to go through what I have!

I have nothing but problems with connection when it comes to texting..texts go into draft and have to be resent or I get a nessage after 5 minutes that text failed to go through. I live in the city limits by Costco with lots of neighborhoods. Barley ever get 1 bar. Right now I am on the west side of Bend visiting and have almost all bars. Sprint store told me thete are 6 new towers. Why cannit they do better on the east side. Had Straight Talk..which uses Verizon tiwers and never had a problem. Really not very happy with Sprint.
