No reception in the entire Ocean Park neighborhood. To even get a signal you have to be on Shore Dr.Was this review helpful to you?
For the first time, my iPhone said "no service" inside Croakers. Looking up the towers online, there's a Cingular tower not that far away on Page Avenue. Do some restaurants use some kind of device to block cell phone signals since they don't want them used in the restaurant? Just curious...Was this review helpful to you?
I always have a signal, hardly ever drops calls. I've been up and down the East coast and the only place I've been where I didn't have a signal or a very weak signal is rural Pennsylvania. Alltel has great service, but their phone selection is kinda crappy.Was this review helpful to you?
Phone always indicates 2 bars of service. If you get a call, don't move! If you do move you are guaranteed to loose the call. If I stand on the rock in the front yard and look the right way, without moving. I can talk.Was this review helpful to you?

Verizon is the best in this area... AT&T drops calls all of the time... and Sprint just sucks overall. Verizon has the best call quality!Was this review helpful to you?
Great coverage in this area. I had 2-3 bars at my house with previous provider and many more problems inside in many places, but have full signal with Alltel at my house and it tends to drop off far less indoors. The coverage is good at house, on base, all through Tidewater Dr. and Military Hwy. The signal just tends to stay strong all through the area. My Circle is a nice calling feature also that can be used for many free minutes. I usually try to write pros and cons, but my only complaint I can think of is the store by Blockbuster in Janaf was busy the day I was there so I had to wait about 15 minutes, but it was a Saturday afternoon. The gentleman seemed friendly and helpful though.Was this review helpful to you?
I have a 3 bar TX signal and a 1 bar EVDO signal on my cell phone. I recently purchased a Verizon broadband modem (air card) for Internat access which uses the EVDO signal for broadband speeds. If I plug in the booster antenna that came with the modem and put the antenna in a window, I can achieve broadband speeds on my modem.Was this review helpful to you?
Alltel works great everywhere, especially in buildings. They have great plans too!Was this review helpful to you?
Finally decided to step into the 21st century and get a cell phone. I probably did too much research, but I compared all the providers here and talked to everybody I knew. Seemed like most co-workers were pleased with their service, but I had a friend with nTelos that advised me against it for lack of signal in many places. It seemed like Alltel and Verizon got the best reviews and seemed to do the best at work and in several places I asked about. I compared all the plans and Alltel also seemed to do very well compared to others, especially when compared to Verizon since those were the main 2 that were recommended for best coverage. I did like the My Circle bonus. But since I got the phone about a month ago, I've also noticed great coverage. I can make a call whenever and wherever, even in buildings others warn me about. For this area, Alltel coverage has been great in my usage but I will update if I find any weak spots to warn others about.Was this review helpful to you?
