Verizon reception in Western part of Mecklenburg County near Gaston County line is horrible. Dropped calls and poor reception. I have called Verizon several times, each time they have promised to look into my concerns and that they will call me back. They have NEVER called back.

I live in Coulwood and use Verizon Wireless. I get spotty reception, and rarely can complete a conversation on the phone. Calls drop occasionally. Worse are the calls that don't drop but you can only hear every third or fourth word of the conversation. Verizon has shown no interest in resolving the issue.

My phone is useless at home, and within 5 miles of the new Wal Mart is pretty bad. Many spots are completely dead, others are just terrible. Down by Mountain Island lake I have a weak signal, but it's too weak to carry on a conversation. I had Sprint until 3 / 2005 and it wasn't great, but it had far fewer dead spots. Sprint's pricing is much better these days, so I could pay $100 more for a phone plus pay Verizon $175 for early termination and still save almost $700 over a 2 year contract.

With two different phones in my house, plus broadband card very poor service if at all. Shopton + Tryon The good manager at the ParkTowne Village store offered a newer broadband card, and I purchased the external window mounted antennae and still am not able to connect. Cell phones drop calls, unable to use pix messaging, or other services. Family visiting from different areas and phones with Verizon also have bad service or no service. Phone service around town varies from excellent at Verizon stores to below average around town. Broadband card is nearly useless around town. If you are able connect, once you move about you are able to roam to other carriers towers but if you are dropped and try to reconnect, the card will show extended network with full strength but unable to authenticate. I've run *228 very many times and no improvement. We also took one of the two VX8100 for updated firmware and no improvement over the other phone with the older code. We are building a house just outside the Mt. Holly-Huntersville + Hwy. 16 area and again same poor coverage there. Coming from S. Fla I've never had a problem down there, I wish they would fix this. I don't want to reinvest in new equipment or the hassle of changing carriers, seems like all the providers have coverage problems in Charlotte area.

I live by the airport so that could cause the reception to be bad. The reception also varies when I am in different part of the house.

I have had Verizon for about 2 years. I have always had good reception with them even while traveling back and forth to Cleveland, OH. I had Sprint once and they are WAY OVER PRICED.

The below posters problem is that you have a CDM8910 phone..it is junk..I had it for a few days and returned it..had the same problem... changed to my Motorola and never have a problem, even in Clover..get a new phone! "Alltel service is poor in Clover. My phone roams analog more than it's on it's own network. This is my second 8910 in 3 months. The first was replaced under warranty because it wouldn't get signal at all. Sprint PCS and AT&T was no better. I travel the east coast and I have to say that I would much rather have my Sprint service back than be locked into a 2 year agreement with Alltel... ."
