I have become use to switching carriers every couple of years because of reception troubles and dead spots in various locations around the Hampton Roads area so this time I decided to try Alltel and am thrilled with the switch. I can't think of anywhere that I don't get at least 4 bars, usually 5. I couldn't be happier and think I finally found a carrier to stick with. They also have great reception up the interstate to Richmond as well as down beyond Suffolk. So far, I have no complaints and am happy to be with Alltel.Was this review helpful to you?
Poor to non existent reception in Baycliff; no reception at pool.Was this review helpful to you?
I have been with Verizon for nearly 3 years. Had many dropped calls on my last cell phone (Kyocera) but, having much better reception with my Motorola. I do have trouble with reception when there are thunderstorms coming in. I have noticed that if I keep up with my monthly updates by dialing in *228, my service is at it's best. I have used my cell in many northern states with pretty decent results. All in all, I'm satisfied with my service.Was this review helpful to you?
I love my Verizon service. I get great reception in my home and almost anywhere I go. I had Sprint for 3 years before switching to Verizon 2 years ago. I couldn't get service with Sprint in my home or places like Red Lobster, dam neck rd etc. After trying 3 different Sprint phones Sprint told me they don't guarantee service in buildings (sprints customer service is horrible). Also when I had Sprint my friend who had T-Mobile could get service when I couldn't. I then switched to Verizon and what a difference. Wonderful reception and great customer service! I wouldn't switch to any other company!Was this review helpful to you?
It depends on how the winds blowing, I guess. I've never had so many problems with reception as I have had with this phone.Was this review helpful to you?
The reception is FANTASTIC outdoors and on the streets, but go into some buildings, such as the Mariott or Dominion Tower and the reception drops dramatically. You would have to get right up against a window to get any kind of reception.Was this review helpful to you?

Inside the house, the reception fluncuates constantly from 0 bars to 4 bars, then back to 0. Apparently, I'm between towers.Was this review helpful to you?
The map shows two towers located within a mile of my home, but neither is owned by Sprint... my reception drops off repeatedly in the house, but works ok outside. Less than 3 / 4 mile from me, on Lynnhaven Pwy near Albright, there is a "dead zone" where I lose reception totally 9 times out of 10.Was this review helpful to you?
