When we first got T-Mobile and were visting it got great service all over bluffton, the island, but over the years it has gotten worse. Most of the time calls get dropped at least once a day when we are there visting. The internet works depending on where we are. Our daughter used to have it also and she went from T-Mobile to straight talk. I don't know what happened to the service here, when I complained to T-Mobile they said I should have been getting service that there were towers near me. I have the same problem when I am in my home state too but I am not around as many trees there.Was this review helpful to you?
I just moved here about 3 months ago. I previously had AT&T years back before switching to Verizon Wireless 2 years ago. Unfortunately where I used to live Verizon Wireless was unable to put up a tower in my area due to licensing issues... therefore I had to suffer with little to no service before I was let out of my contract and switched back to AT&T (who had a tower right next to my house... same with T-Mobile) Now I have AT&T but just relocated here to Bluffton. Long story short AT&T sucks here. For the amount of money I pay them I should be getting better service. The fact that I go to places with friends and they have Verizon Wireless or another carrier and their phone is working and mine says no service is crazy. If all other carriers can work ok how come AT&T can't. I recently called them and got told that my area is known as a "troubled service area" and that they will be upgrading and adding some more towers. Plus adding some 4g to the area. This apparently is supposed to be done by jan 30th 2013. I am waiting to see what happens with this. As soon as I notice no improvement I'm jumping ship and going back to Verizon Wireless. At least they will provide me great service and although with them you cant move from phone to phone because of a removable sim card... .I'd rather have a phone that works. I highly regret switching from Verizon Wireless.Was this review helpful to you?

AT&T reception is horrible and totally unacceptable in the greater Hilton Head / Bluffton areas. No reception whatsoever inside. Spotty at best outside in few locations. How does a provider overlook such a large population in a flat area where cell service would be easy to broadcast? We have much better reception in the mountains of NC.Was this review helpful to you?
Often, I have no bars or (worse yet) a nil sign even when standing outside my home. I also occasionally receive a message that I am not registered on a network. T-Mobile representative stated that their map shows coverage in my area... too bad I can't use their map to make a phone call.Was this review helpful to you?
No reception here at home. No data services, either. According to the Sprint Coverage Map, reception here is "Good." Not true. It's been like this for the past few months.Was this review helpful to you?
Get very poor reception at our house. My phone usually has 1 bar and my husband's none.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint coverage in bluffton is terrible. If you look at their "coverage map" for Bluffton vs the Island, coverage is one level up from bluffton. I get dropped calls all the time and can barely talk to my wife when she is in her building on Buckwalter. Nextel coverage is better here than the Sprint towersWas this review helpful to you?
Since June 2010, service has been horrible. I drop calls daily in my home. I think the timing might correspond with Verizon selling off some of the Alltel assets... ?Was this review helpful to you?
