USCellular worked great but didn't have the coverage my husband, an over the road truck driver needed! USCellular charged him outrageous prices. So, we switched to Verizon. Great for him, AWFUL for me in Rocky Point, NC. When we switched to Verizon... I thank the lord we kept our land line, otherwise I'd never be able to hear or respond to calls on Verizon! I just shout in the phone the landline home phone number to recall me on! Soooo disappointed with Verizon in Pender County, NC!

We pay over $200 / mo. and the trying to use the internet makes me feel like beating my head against the wall (slow!). Replaced devices and sim cards. Lots of wasted time speaking to CS. I have complained to Verizon for over 2 years. Options are limited in rural areas. Timewarner is not an option at all.

Used to get 4-5 bars of reception, got a new phone and Ellipsis Wi-fi 3 months ago. 1-2 bars now, dropping calls continuously. I have unlimited data and wonder if I'm being throttled? Have been with Verizon since the Alltel buyout. Always great service and reception, but no longer do.

WILLARD, NC (.5 miles from Hwy. 11, 1 mile from I-40) Straight Talk over VERIZON network: rarely get over 2 bars and sometimes, none show except as gray. Usually can make, receive calls and texts, with occasional dropped calls. Internet is very slow to load. US Cellular here: We were USC customers for over 12 years. Until about 2 years ago, when they did not renew their contract to use Verizon towers, we had exemplary service. Once the contract with V ended, reception went to poor and at times, no service at all. Rural ENFIELD, NC area (2 miles south of Hwy. 561 and about the same from Ringwood Rd. and Johnny Johnson Rd.). My parents also had to leave US Cellular for poor or no reception after many years of strong signals, and have had about the same results from Verizon as I do... best there is for the area. US Cellular used to be THE cellular company for rural areas in NC where no other service worked, but they managed to ruin that completely - just about the time of their "Belief Plan" launch. I spent countless hours on calls to techs, trying to figure out why reception had gone to Hades. All in all, it boiled down to signals trying to "jump" to nearby Verizon towers, with signals that were stronger than USC. DEFINITELY recommend that anyone who is in Verizon territory, go with Straight Talk. No contract, and $45 / mo. for unlimited calls and text, and ample data. If it quits working, at least you aren't stuck with a fat fee for cancelling a contract. NOTE: depending on your area, different phones through Straight Talk work on different networks. KNOW first what co. is strongest in your area, then buy a phone that works on that carrier!

I am lucky to get 2 bars if I stand by a window. Almost every call that actually gets through ends up getting dropped. I had Sprint b4 with a booster tower and I thought it was bad when it dropped a few calls a week. Verizon makes Sprint look fantastic!

Considering changing phones / plans. Have had T-Mobile for years up North. Recently moved to Compass Pointe noticed coverage in outside area not good, but sitting in living room reading all these reviews and noticed that I have 3 bars here. I'm afraid, now, if I upgrade my phone or change my plan, I may be worse off than I am now.

We finally got 4G coverage in Burgaw; however, it is not the strongest reception. In my house or in a store in downtown Burgaw, it is easy to lose reception. Out on 117 near I-40, reception is better. It feels like there is something in downtown Burgaw interfering with the reception.

We just moved into Brunswick Forest by Lillibridge and Shelmore my iPhone4s gets 1 bar and my wife's iPhone3 gets 0 bars. Outside we get 3 and 2 bars. AT&T wants $200 for signal booster. I would never have a contract with any of the cell company. So next week I will try T-mobile. After that who knows.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | White Road / Alamosa Off Gordon, Wilmington, NC 28411 |

VZW: I have a Straight Talk Samsung Galaxt Crntura that runs on VZW towers. I dont get but 1-2 bars at home but I still never drop calls. Anywhere. AT&T: AT&Ts 3G / 4G signal is 1-2 bars here but its enough... data and calls are still usuable indoors. You will want to avoid them in Leland, Southport, Porters Neck, off Greenville Loop, Pine Grove, UNCW, River Road, Castle Hayne, Bellevue, Delco, Lake Wacamaw, or Burgaw. T-Mobile: their prices are competitive and so are their deals but avoid them in NC! Theres 5 bars in the White Road / Alamosa area, but you will want to avoid them in Leland, Southport, Porters Neck, off Greenville Loop, Pine Grove, UNCW, River Road, Castle Hayne, Bellevue, Delco, Lake Wacamaw, or Burgaw. Youll suffer. Am not familiar with Sprint or US Cellular in NC. DO NOT GO WITH AT&T / TMOBILE IN BRUNSWICK PENDER ONSLOW NEW HANOVER OR BLADEN COUNTIES. Straight Talk has Androids and iPhones that run on VZW for $45 / mo. unlimited everything. Theres no downside. Save some money!

Poor reception most of the time at home, during a recent rainstorm I had no service at all for about 2 hours. And the phone often has no service even during good weather.
