I do not know why there are so many bad reviews of AT&T here in Elkins. Have had AT&T for several years and have ZERO issues. In fact, it is the ONLY major cell carrier that works! Verizon pulled out. If these reviews are based upon traveling in the area, then they are not fair evaluations. This is the Mountains. There is Bound to be pockets that do not have service as the roads here are Up and Down between peaks and valleys. NO service will work 100% of the time with those conditions. To do that would require a tower on every single mountain peak. Highly non feasible. Frankly, I have no issues with AT&T. They suit me just fine.

We are from NY and purchased our iPhone 4s from AT&T locally in Queensbury,NY. We were told there was coverage in Elkins, WV and also had looked at the map to be sure we made the right choice. every July we go back for my husband's Family Reunion. We were so disappointed that we had coverage only in the Hampton Inn we stayed in and sometimes in our car but both places the phone had to be plugged in or wouldn't work. There was a local AT&T store but it closed early and when we got home I called to complain. AT&T could have cared less. I am bitter-ly locked into a 2 year plan and paid for 5 days of virtually nothing. I understand nothing is perfect, but the phone is basically worthless if it won't work when we travel. It also had almost no coverage in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Southern NY. as well.I will never trust AT&T again to stand behind their products or their word. Kathy Ann Barkley

For Cellular One customers, once you go through the big intersection at the north end of town, you pretty much lose reception. Folks with US Cellular do not seem to have this problem. Have not been able to figure out why, but some hypothosize the hill blocks reception to the tower (not sure where this tower is located).

First trip to Elkins since July and Cingular GSM is there now. Seems to work fine and seems to have pretty good coverage too.

Cingular's eastern region includes all customers who's accounts reside in KY, WV, VA, PA, MD, NC, SC, TN, DC. So if you have a account address in any of these states your Cingular GSM phone will work in the Elkins service region. Mine did as of Fri Aug 05 and Sat Aug 06. I live in Charlottesville VA and I travel through this area often. My phone worked for voice, no gprs service as of yet. So you can go ahead and sign up for service because it will work. -H.

Thank you for the information on Elkins. I am looking to purchase a Cingular plan, but I tried a month ago and when I got the phones, there was no service. I do have a question though, what do you mean by "customers from the eastern region?" Why does Elkins not have coverage for all Cingular customers, and if I order a new nationwide plan for elkins, will it work for me or do I have to wait till the end of the year. I really just want to make sure that it is going to work this time when I order the plan. Last time I ordered Cingular told me for sure that it would work in Elkins, and it didn't, and that is why I got a free month from them and no longer have service.
