5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | East Saint Patrick | South Valley Dr., Rapid City, SD 57703 |

at home great, out in the country surprising dead spots. I have had a cell phone from the very first tower in the area. with one tower and built in phone in my truck had excellent service up to about 75 miles, now you had just about better have a tower in sight. although after initial misteps AT&T has gotten better.

I've never had a dropped call. Granted, I don't use my cell phone for calling a whole lot, but when I have it's been perfect. Texts always go through in a timely fashion. I may be switching to STraight Talk when my contract expires and I will likely only pick a phone that runs on Verizon towers.

No dropped calls, no missed txts. Have gone fishing deep in the woods @ Custer and plinking on beretta rd. towards Mount Rushmore. Phone worked just fine. Only downside is, 3g goes in and out but voice / txt worked well

Verizon sucks. Bought a $500 phone and it broke within 18 months. Now the "only option" is to "upgrade". Would rather pay the early termination fee. My last phone lasted six years.

I had Alltel and it worked very well. Got booted to ATT and the service is really, really poor. No signal in my office on SDSMT campus. Occasionally can't make a call and get 'Emergency calls only' message. Later same location allows calls. ATT is a disaster.

Sprint

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | I-90 | US 16, Rapid City, SD 57701 |

I visited here last month and I must say I was very impressed with 3g roaming service I was provided. I must also say that no carrier makes it easier and more convenient than Sprint to use your phone where native Sprint service is not avalable. I had Verizon for years and I never knew what kind of roaming service I had or if I was going to have to pay extra? It was always very confusing. As with Sprint if you got a signal make the call and dont worry..Verizon must honor the 10 year contract that Sprint signed with Alltel before the merger. Only 6.5 years to Verizon hang in there old buddy. Verizon and Sprint should settle their differences and become one company so we can wipe ATT off the face of the earth! Same technology why not?

Reception is spotty in our house as well as the entire city. Dont try to talk and drive because you will loose the signal. Had to get a landline.

Alltel

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Rapid City | Omaha St., Rapid City, SD 57701 |

I was a little hesitant going with Alltel at first because I didn't know anybody with it. But I was tempted because their prices on my family plan saved a lot over my former Verizon plan. So far, the coverage has been really good. I'm happy with the switch and Alltel has some good plans. I have no problems at all along I-90. Signal will drop several places around the city to 1-2 bars but calls still go through clearly. I'm happy with service.

Phone reception sucks! Please don't buy plans from this company nor Tracfone. I'm going Verizon. I heard good things about them from friends living in Rapid City and Box Elder.
