Cannot get a signal out of my neighborhood at all. Literally have to drive about a 1 / 2 mile out to Park Rd.to get any reception at all.Was this review helpful to you?
Majority of the time I have "No Service." Occassionally I might have service, but I will usually drop the call prior to the conclussion of the call. Nextel's response? "We don't have enough cell towers in the area and there are no plans for increasing them." I regret signing a 2 yr contract!Was this review helpful to you?
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... ."Was this review helpful to you?

Second verse, same as the first... virtually no reception in the building, little on the grounds, better as you get back on the street.Was this review helpful to you?
Wouldn't you think that Cingular would figure out it would have some great business out of the Southpark / Myers Park area if they could just get folks some FREAKING reception??!Was this review helpful to you?
Recption's always bad here at my house with Sprint- Nextels never had this problem, always five+ bars. The fact that the I330 doesn't have a suitable antenna doesn't help either-Was this review helpful to you?
We lose reception driving out of Lake Norman heading north. In and out of Charlotte, calls are dropped often. When we call each other, the phones don't always ring and we have to leave a message. For some reason, the message signals hours after the message was left. These phones are expensive, totally unreliable and the year contract was a big rip off. We are dropping it immediately and switching to Cingular, which doesn't sound much better.Was this review helpful to you?
I have been with Alltel 3 years now. I tried Verizon, NO SERVICE at my house in Charlotte! Can you hear me now? NO! I also tried Cricket, bad! and Cingular was good, but there is very spotty service in rural areas and no service in northern New England where I frequently visit. Since switching to Alltel, I have had no problems. I have service everywhere I go. In and around Charlotte is very good. The only place I drop calls is on I-85 just north of Concord Mills. The signal is 2 to 3 bars at my house. I wish it was a litle bit better, but it's still good service compared to the other options in town.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is in and out inside my apt, I have to sit still in certain places to have an extended conversation without dropping the call or going in and out. Calls are dropped consistently in certain places on my way to and from work in the Coliseum area... ..overall, the service is mediocre. I've been with Cingular for 4 years and was thinking about switching, but the more I read and talk to others it's obvious that I'll probably have poor reception in certain areas with whoever I choose... ... so, reluctantly, I think I'll stick with Cingular. On a more positive note, customer service is always helpful and easy to work with.Was this review helpful to you?
