ALERT: There are no Sprint towers in central Va AT ALL... it's all leased towers from Intellos! I used to get decent talk, data and text around the airport on 29. About 6 months ago, I started to get roaming alerts where I used to get 4 bar connectivity. There is a dead spot on Proffitt Rd and at least 1 on 20 nearing Pantops. To top it off, there is no 4G service and barely 3G in and around "the best place to live" (sarcasm) Charlottesville. Sprint has 4G in major cities ONLY (NoVa, Hampton Roads, Richmond, some interstates). Looking to switch carriers!Was this review helpful to you?
I love T-Mobile and won't switch because I'm only a visitor to charlottesville now, but the service here is abysmal. T-Mobile reps had told me that my service would improve with a T-Mobile phone (old phone was an iPhone 4 from AT&T with a Tmo SIM) but that has helped very little. I'm usually on 2G (Edge) in Cville which basically means data is unusable, including iMessage.Was this review helpful to you?
My calls drop or mostly never come through at my two story town house. I got AT&T in PA and I seriously have to switch carriers after a year of dropped and missed calls.Was this review helpful to you?
Anyone notice a trend here ? All networks have coverage issues. I have been a cell phone administrator for a large compay with over 400 cell phones. They utilized Verizon. I have had plans with sprint,att and now tmobile. Verizon probably does have the best network, but there must be a great deal of 40+ year olds writing these reviews that are expecting their cell network to work like their landline phones. Bottom line, everyone hates their network,they switch and then they hate that one too. That being said, T-Mobile is just average but definitely the worst. Just like the rest of them... .Was this review helpful to you?
Do not use Verizon if you live near Pantops. I have experienced so many dropped calls that it is impossible to hold a conversation with anyone. Verizon rep first told me that I could drop my contract with no charge if they could not fix it and after 6 months of calls and promises and no response from Verizon, I was told I would be charged $210 for a contract cancellation or I could pay $249 for a booster. Great business minds to lose a customer worth thousands of dollars in continuing contracts over refusal to pay $249 for a booster. Goodbye Verizon... more $ than brains!Was this review helpful to you?
Absolutely awful. Should never has switched from my previous carrier.Was this review helpful to you?
Usually have full bars all around town, seldom 2-3 bars driving outside the city and out to Crozet. No reception to 1 or 2 bars near Blue Mountain Brewery. Seldom drops calls, great data speed and call quality. Very happy with AT&T.Was this review helpful to you?
While there are lots of low or no signal spots around town, they seem to be pretty small and fairly isolated. Coverage is generally fine. The biggest issue (poor indoor reception) seems to have been resolved recently, as my phone now hops onto the AT&T network when it looses the T-Mobile signal indoors. Only remaining issue is that, despite (supposedly) running on a HSPA+42 network, data speeds are painfully slow.Was this review helpful to you?
Terrible reception, calls drop regularly all along 250 from Crozet to Charlottesville. Regularly dies 250 in Ivy.Was this review helpful to you?
I can't send texts and my call quality is horrible. Don't go with Sprint, I'm looking to switch carriers but it looks like there's no good cell service in the area from any carrier /Was this review helpful to you?
