Have to drive to highway for receptionWas this review helpful to you?
Depends on time of day if we can get service in the house, sometimes have to go outside towards the road. Texts come in at random... PLEASE SOMEONE IN THIS AREA LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE GOOD COVERAGE WITH ANY CARRIER!Was this review helpful to you?
Highly variable within our house, a bit better outside. Bottom line, can't even send text messages from the family room as often as not. Ridiculous. That said, all carriers on the island have issues. The NIMBY's have run amok.Was this review helpful to you?

Barely 1 bar here. Calls don't come in and I don't receive text messages. Leave my property and drive toward Winslow and "bang" here comes all of the notifications saying I missed calls and texts roll in. We work at home and some days I don't need to leave so you can imagine my frustration. We will never give up our landline in case of emergencies at home and in case school needs to reach us. The City of BI needs to do more about this issue.Was this review helpful to you?
ATT had great reception in this area until 2 months ago. Down to 1 bar. I cannot receive or make calls, Called ATT 3 times. First time was a farce. Second time the lady got a lot of information and promised a response and resolution within days. Nothing came out of it. Now phone is roaming. I called again and got a buy a signal boaster for $175 to receive calls at home. No answer as to why the signal went down, I have 2 1 / 2 months on my contract. I would like to change to something that works.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
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.Was this review helpful to you?
