I have perfect signal at Harkers Island RV Resort ! I wonder if the water tower here has a Verizon antenna on it ?

I call and US Cellular says I should have great signal but my entire family plus friends say how bad the signal stinks with US Cellular there. I can barely make a call and rarely use the supposed 3G or 4G. I sent my husband a text message (when he didn't answer his phone in the store across from me). Phone didn't show a call and he got the text message when we were getting in the car 10 minutes later! Don't choose USC for beach life!

My commits are the same as the others, if I'm Hwy. 70 or 17 I have reception. At home most of the time no service or 1 bar and that bar comes and goes.

A ripoff to pay for cell phone service in Pamlico County, there is no “Good Service “

cell only works at this location by internet. calls are dropped outside of residence. tower close but this location is a dead zone. was told tower was being re-constructed but no difference after six months. traveling east or west one quarter mile down highway 24 three bars appear on phone from 1452. networks should be required to correct

In the interest of public safety, something should be done about the poor cellular service in the Oriental, NC area. Dead zones, dropped calls and weak signals are the norm regardless of carrier. Lives could be saved with better access to emergency services. Voters and legislative leaders should demand better service from cellular companies. They are making Billions at the risk and expens of rural American's.

Verizon seems to be the best carrier here in terms of reception. Unfortunately, Verizon is also high priced. I would love to find a cheaper reliable service, if another carrier would build a tower here they would clean up.

Phone often won't even ring if people call. Service sitting outside only moderately better. Sometimes texts don't arrive for hours. Tried adding a microcell tower to house and only got modest improvements. Don't think there is a great provider in our neighborhood!

There is no reception in many areas of Straight Road. At best there is 1x reception. Dropped calls on all carriers are frequent.

Pathethic. I just arrived in this town and I cannot get signal at all. It's very spotty EVERYWHERE. I'm on base now and my one little bar goes in and out, so I'm relying on the wifi right now. I can't even use wifi calling because this stupid phone provider doesn't allow GoPhone to use it for some illogical reason. I despise AT&T and I just got a new phone on Dec. 14 with them. I used to be with Cricket and I wish I would've stayed with them.
