Even with bars flicking from 1 to Full, as soon as I enter Myers Park at Colony by H.S., or Sharon Rd / Sharon Lane intersection, I cannot make a call; I lose my call; or I can hear the person I called and they cannot hear me at all. I have reported this area to Cingular for four years. It seems to be getting worse. The reception in my Southpark home (Giverny) is also bad - - so much so that I had to get a land line for my business. I can hear them, but they say I am breaking up - - all this with Full Bars! I just am dumbfounded that we have to pay over $100 for substandard service. How is that possible?

Not at all good. OK in the street. But who wants to stand in the street to hold a cell phone conversation?

Reception really sucks at the corner or Providence and Fairview Road, have called Cingular, they said they would fix the problem if more users called in and asked for a problem ticket to be submitted for Providence and Fairview and several parts of Sharon Road.

Alltel coverage has been absolutely perfect here ever since I signed up about two years ago. Anywhere I've ever been over the area here the signal has always been really high at 4 or 5 bars with very clear sounding calls and no drops. No problems on 485 or 77. Out and around town, even away from the interstate the signal still stays high. The signal drops off a little indoors with no windows like the Wal-Mart. But not near as bad as others. My friend with Verizon always asks to use my phone there and several places inside the Mall here in Pineville. Where I work at the hospital Alltel also seems to get reception in places others won't. It's also on full signal at all relatives and friends houses living all over the area. I'm not sure what it is about the signal but it just seems to do better overall in this area even though my friend with Verizon is always complaining in several areas. Overall, I'm really happy with the coverage and I love the My Circle feature. I just renewed my contract and added a line to have 2 lines with 900 minutes and unlimited calls to any 10 numbers for $69 and when I was shopping around it seemed like a better deal than anybody else offered especially with the coverage here.

Cingular. One dropped call a day. Guaranteed. That should be their revised slogan. The lucky many get more than one call dropped a day. And the very lucky few get more calls dropped per hour. The other odd thing is almost all the calls that get dropped, get dropped when I have 4 bars (highest). That makes absolutely no sense. Why did my call get dropped? because I had low reception? I had a low signal? I don't think so. I had 3-4 bars. Unless those stupid bars of reception mean absolutely nothing. A placebo to make the customer feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Reception is terrible. I moved here from Boston, where my coverage with Sprint was fine, but here in Charlotte it is horrible. Literally, I go through at least 5 dropped calls per day. Can't be on the phone for more than 10 minutes without the signal fading. Called today to try to get out of my contract, and the guy at Sprint said it was beause my phone was old. Didn't have much of a comeback when I said it worked fine in Boston for 2 years, so perhaps it WAS the coverage. Anyway, they won't let me out of the contract. even I lost the signal twice on the call to cancel, and they still wouldn't listen. While I'm here, I'd like to share that Sprint has far and away the worst customer service of any company - phone or otherwise - that I have ever seen in my life. They border on evil. They make the DMV look like the Maitre'D at the Ritz Carlton. Avoid them at all costs. Verizon and Alltel appear to offer the best coverage in Charlotte.

I moved here from the Northeast and rarely had a problem with reception, even in the mountains of ME. I go from 2 to 4 bars in my home here in Matthews, depending on which room I'm in and which direction I'm sitting or standing. There's a big problem with breaking up and dead and dropped calls. I thought I might need a new phone (as it's 2 years old). After reading the other entry on this site, the phone may be fine; it may just be the area!
