I occasionally get a call come through when I am in my house on my cell phone, but I can usually sit by my window or on my porch and get at least 2 bars. When I am on the phone outside or driving from Hwy. 70, I never have a problem getting a signal. I can drive all the way from 95 to the coast on the major roads and have at least 3 bars nearly the whole time, but lose service as soon as I get onto the Air Station or near the Croatan Forest. I also receive a signal in Wal-Mart, Food Lion and other stores that my previous phone wouldn't.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon is a real let down out here - many dropped calls, minimal reception. On the plus side, if you call and complain they may let you out of the contract as it is a known bad coverage area. Terrible on Cherry Point - I miss 10-20% of all calls at a minimum.Was this review helpful to you?
When we pass through Bath on our way to Belhaven, I never have any trouble getting service with my Verizon Wireless phone. It is usually one bar from the maximum number, so no issues there!Was this review helpful to you?
We do have SOME cell reception at the area where we live on Adams Creek Rd.but further towards hwy 101 the reception is great. Only one dead spot on 101. Inside the house there are prime spots with reception and some without. Still able to txt message and get picture messages. The night mins start 7pm every day and weekend starts 7pm Friday ending Monday am at 7. The even the national plan is very reasonable because it's hard to use your anytime mins. Incoming calls are free. Monthly free moble to mobile unlimited. Great plan and decent service for an area at the edge of nowhere.Was this review helpful to you?
Alltel's service is awesome. I've been a customer for 10 years and travel 90% of the time in Eastern North Carolina. I just upgraded last year to the Blackberry 8830 and LOVE the service! I have co-workers that have US Cellular and for customers who need data / broadband service Alltel network is far superior than US Cellular's. I can view attachments and surf the web in a quarter of the time US Cellular customers can and on a more reliable network! I truly can say I have had very few dropped calls and you could not pay me to get out of my carrier.Was this review helpful to you?
Occasionally one bar, usually none. Switched from Cingular because they had even worse coverage and terrible customer service, but VZW has only marginally better coverage (and locks down their phones). If I were to do it again, I would go with Alltel.Was this review helpful to you?
US Cellular is the only way to go, unless you are in and around Oriental. Other than that, I always have coverage wherever I travel!Was this review helpful to you?
I can send and receive text messages. However, I can only receive pictures and not send them... go figure. I only get 2-3 bars at most.Was this review helpful to you?
While this is a Verizon phone, I'm really roaming on US Cellular. I switched to Verizon because US Cellular's coverage went bad on Hwy. 12-70 Between Marsh Rd.and Harkers Ilsand Rd. Verizon does work.Was this review helpful to you?
I am a T-Mobile customer but I am always roaming with suncom(my phone never says t-mobile)Poor reception and all my local numbers have to be dialed with the area code first. very inconvenient. Most calls sound like we are holding tin cans with strings between us. Terrible phone serviceWas this review helpful to you?
