I had Alltel, which had excellent reception out here. When Verizon bought out Alltel and I was switched to Verizon, the service has dropped - poor reception frequently, occasionally drops.

Phone 1 week old, signal is horrible. Absolutely no service in buildings on base, dropped calls while out in parking lot, I have yet to see more than 1 bar on my phone. 9 mile road is a big dead zone. Live in emerald isle - dropped calls while in my driveway! just switched from 11 years with sprint, considering going back... how frustrating

My Motorola Krave is awesome! Verizon is awesome! This is the best phone and phone company I have had and been with. Reception for incoming and outgoing calls is the best! Downloading messages, music, games, and apps is wonderful! Internet and Vcast was faster before the Alltel hook up but still is awesome enough to keep in my plan! I am absolutely enjoying my Krave ZN4! Small dead zone areas include Mccotter blvd, the 101 curve entering / leaving Havelock, the small bridge area of Black Creek in Newport, and past the camp ground on Adams Creek its still great but can run into a "floating bad spot" from time to time. Acutal dropped calls are maybe no more than 10 a month in the house, less than that outside. My sound is very clear... people think i'm in the city all the time! I love my Motorola Krave... the days of using a wire ear piece and holding my phone up like the statue of liberty, for reception, are long gone! Verizon rules!

Can't get reception inside buildings. Their response? We don't guarantee coverage inside. Now that they are Verizon? They just did a big update around here. Alltel stuff still won't work inside. The Verizon stuff does as it is bouncing off uscellular towers in the area. We can't.

When I first moved here (Aug 2008), I had ATT. The reception was fleeting, at best. Then I changed to Verizon. My reception got worse. My son has a cheaper cell phone and seems to maintain a little better reception than I do with my Blackberry. Verizon said, "We're buying all Alltel's towers so your reception will be better on 15 Jan, 2009." In March, my reception still sucked. I went back to Verizon and asked why hasn't the reception improved??? "Oh, now we have to wait for the towers to be turned over to us.. paperwork... redtape... " Then the service will improve. Well, I'm paying for the HERE and NOW. I don't feel I should have to pay now, for service that WILL get better later. I've been paying for 1400 mins for a few months, expecting the reception to improve. It didn't. Finally, I dropped my mins since I was using less than 200 mins / month because my phone reception wouldn't work long enough to use any mins! I'm now paying for the lowest number of mins, and still can't get good enough reception to use even half of the mins for which I have to pay to continue service with Verizon. I was wondering if I got a different smartphone (because I really use mine a LOT for work), if I would get better reception with ANY service provider in this area.

Perhaps the base and its radar systems are effecting the cell signal somehow?

From Mcotter turn east on 101 I lose signal at the end of the fence at the base then it is off and on all the way to Harlowe. Mostly off. Alltel customers now get full bars down it that area thanks to a new tower somewhere close by but even with Verizon buying Alltel we haven't seen the tower yet. Verizon service isn't good until your in Morehead City

As far as a Verizon signal, i've never seen 2 bars. The best thing about this is that when your phone loses all Verizon signal, it'll pick up the extended network which works great, even in my barracks room. The bad part about this is that you have to watch your phone and time a call when you're in a different network.

At our home on Whittaker Creek we pick up a connection about 60-70% of the time. Currently trying an external antenna - that seems to help get more bars when a connection is made. Once I get on the road and travel 55 toward New Bern reception is good.
