The salesman at US Cellular assured me I'd have coverage at home back when I first signed up. He lied. I can't use my cell phone at home 90% of the time. If I didn't use it for travelling, I'd get rid of the useless service in a minute.Was this review helpful to you?
On a good day we can get two bars reception outside. Inside reception goes to nothing. I would classify the reception as very spotty, it cuts out all of the time. In the same location a US Cellular phone gets 4 bars reception and does not cut out. I don't understand why this is when Verizon ans us cellular use the same cellular technology.Was this review helpful to you?
Reasonable reception with old Unicell digital service but just got T-Mobile gsm which barely works at all. T-Mobile and AT&T say they have an agreement to use Unicell towers so we should be getting good reception. I suspect T-Mobile cannot / isn't using all the towers in the area (Wiscasset, Boothbay, Newcastle). Other possibility is Unicell's gsm towers are not up to full power yet. Would love to hear from anyone that knows what is going on. We have been waiting years for Unicell to get gsm up and running.Was this review helpful to you?
Outside the house we get 2 bars. Inside the house, only one bar on my phone and no service on the wife's phone (which is the primary phone). We have exchanged my wife's phone trying to get a poor performer instead of a no performer, but only got worst.Was this review helpful to you?
I have traveled throughout Maine (not in far north though). My reception has been generally good even inland and way downeast. Sometimes lose calls and reception can suffer in large buildings.Was this review helpful to you?
