0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Oddfellows and Blakely, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110 |

My sister and I are TRYING to figure out which cell provider to switch to or continue with based on service and affordability. Currently, we use Sprint. This week, I am house sitting and I'm lucky to have 1 out 5 bars inside and I can get 3 bars outside but I'll completely lose the whole signal in the blink of an eye. Call quality (IF the call even comes in) is horrible and the few I've received and / or made have dropped at least twice. I switched to texting everyone of my personal contacts but that doesn't help when I'm trying to make a doctors appt or talk to someone at the bank. Texts take time to send as well. I'm using their wifi so data hasn't been too bad. I live in the Bill Point community and I've been "surviving" with Sprint there. The service is better there than here for sure. But, that's obviously not saying much. My sister and I both have Sprint. Separate accounts. She has a Galaxy something, top of the line and I have the iPhone 4. We literally sit on opposite sides of a standard size couch and I have a fair signal and she has none. could someone explain dem apples? Unfortunately, I think we BI'ers are just stuck with crappy cell service, regardless of carrier, until someone with some clout forces whomever is in charge of allowing new towers into allowing / begging providers for more towers.

Fletcher Bay area and the entire west side of Bainbridge Island has very little to no cell coverage. If you are on the water with no tree's or houses in the way might get 4g coverage. But quickly switches back to 2-3 bars of 3g. Needless to say It sucks. They don't seem to care to upgrade their coverage in the area. After numerous calls to tech support and fix it tickets have resulted in worse reception.

We just moved to Winslow in March, horrible reception on Verizon phones. At first I thought it was just my building, and Verizon kept telling me I would have to buy a network extender. But I have had dropped calls down on Wyatt, at Strawberry Hill Park, Safeway, the Library. I'm so tired of this, now I'm waiting for them to submit a support ticket to see if there is anything they can do to improve service. I just want to move on!

When I switched from AT&T to Verizon a couple years ago I couldn't get a signal at home and Verizon refunded all my money and ported my number back to AT&T. Luckily AT&T put in a tower at Battle Point Park. In December I switched back to Verizon because AT&T only had one high end Android phone and they wanted over $1,000 more over the term of the contract for four smartphones with data plans. Now I get a weak signal for both phone and data. My daughter has a HTC Incredible and gets a little better reception. Apparently Verizon is applying for a tower location at the high school. I wrote to the city council and asked them to force the cellular providers to share towers that way we'll get better coverage and the companies will have to compete on service... a novel idea!

I moved here from Poulsbo. Hundreds of dropped calls later, I called Verizon and complained. Their standard response was, "why haven't you called before?". I told them to take a look at my record for the dropped calls from the time I moved to the new address. They agreed that they could definitely see the problem. They said that I was in a 'marginal' area. They are having a problem getting the go ahead to erect sufficient towers in this area. I was finally able to get a refund for the 3 months of basic service and waive the termination fee. Switched to AT&T after inquiring about their signal strength at my SPECIFIC address. They had told me that I would have terrific signal strength. Returned home and was unable to even download my free ring tone. Called them and spoke to tech support. They pulled up my SPECIFIC address and told me that there was terrific signal strength 500 feet away -all around me, but that where my house is located... .. slim to none. Told them that I had asked about the SPECIFIC address before I switched, and that I was very unhappy about the mis-representation. They agreed to drop the contract (no early termination fee if I could find another carrier).
