I have had AT&T for several years now and it works great in Lynchburg. EPIC SIGNAL! They keep adding towers in my area, my signal keeps getting better, and having the 3G is awesome! Not to mention their 3G is way faster than the competition, plus that speed is being upgraded as well, and then 4G is coming. Assuming all things stay the same, I will never switch!Was this review helpful to you?
While in Lynchburg, AT&T service is acceptable, but in transit to our home in Appomattox County on 460, AT&T service is horrible. Virtually no service on 460 from Mount Athos Rd.through Spout Spring area, and calls are dropped regularly. Trying to figure a way out of my AT&T contract.Was this review helpful to you?
I use a straight talk phone, which is pre-paid. My particular phone uses Verizon towers, and I have been pleased with the service so far! In my area, as long as you stay away from Nextel, you are good to go!Was this review helpful to you?
Used to have 5 bars and terrific data service (EV). Has degraded over the past year '10 - '11. Now I drop calls frequently, signal fades in and out continuously. Data icon goes from 1x to EV, back to ev, down to 1x again. Battery is use has grown due to all the signal searching.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon wireless works great in Amherst. There is a Verizon tower on a local mountain with 3G service now and going to 4G soon ( as of July 2011)Was this review helpful to you?
I have had US cellular for 2yrs now and I love it. I have signal everywhere. But I do live in a basment so I don't have good reception but once I step out it's great rarely do I have dropped calls.Was this review helpful to you?
US Cellular is the only carrier that provides full reception at my home in Forest. Always 5 barsWas this review helpful to you?
03 / 23 / 2011 No internet connection via Verizon cell tower via the new 4G Thunderbolt cell phone. Voice communication strength is always 1 to 2 bars at best, where as past reception was always excellent. Called Verizon today and they are looking into it. Will update this blog ASAP.Was this review helpful to you?
Horrible to non-existant AT&T reception in my house. If I'm lucky and I go outside and stand in my driveway, sometimes I get 1 bar, enough to make a quick call. Totally unacceptable! I work from home and am constantly missing calls. I also teach at Lynchburg College and the entire campus is a dead zone for AT&T - NO service at all. I'm getting out of this contract a.s.a.p.Was this review helpful to you?
Very poor coverage. I moved to the area in July 2010 and recently saw articles about "3G popping up on people's phones downtown," but I still struggle with 1-0 bars. I don't known how long I can hold out before switching providers...Was this review helpful to you?
