Terrible reception on Hurlburt: 0-2 bars, spotty EDGE coverage if I get it at all, which I usually don't. Gets a bit better along 98 both east and west, but coverage completely disappears if I go more than a mile or so north of the beach. Zero bars and zero data up toward both the airport and Eglin.

Cell reception horrible for some time, especially indoors. This is all over 32578. My friend has Verizon and am constantly seeing 4-5 bars on her iPhone vs 1-2 on mine. I get dropped calls and folks claim I sound underwater. Dropping ATT unless they improve quickly. Do not go with them--I don't care what the savings are... .

What most people don't know is that a phone's 3G relies partly on that phone's own hardware and software. For years, Verizon has had the best phones - phones which were able to pick up signal perfectly. Sprint, on the other hand, mostly had phones that couldn't pick it up at all. If you use any Samsung device, chances are that you won't be able to pick up signal regardless of your carrier. On my HTC One (and other HTC phones), on the other hand, I have perfect 3G signal in this area. It is instantaneous and reliable as long as I'm in the range of the tower - which is actually very far. If you are unable to get proper 3G in this area, Sprint isn't the problem. Your phone is. If you stop getting the cheapest phones and start getting the ones that have the better specs, you won't have any problem with Sprint at all.

For the past few months I've had problems with dropped calls, calls where one party cannot hear the other party speaking, and the other party not being able to hear me clearly... the speech sounds garbled or cuts in and out. I have a lot of trouble on calls inside my house and frequently have to go outside on the patio to get good reception. This is ridiculous!

No service is perfect, but the only carrier that has a store in town is AT&T and it is one of the best customer service experiences I have ever had dealing with Jon and his staff, they are so helpful and funny as well. You will be laughing and enjoying the best coverage in the area at the same time. If you need a new phone dont bother going to destin for a phone, go see Jon or his crew. Absolutley amazing service and lots of fun while you wait.

Verizon's signal is good until I get home, when I reach my sub-division the signal starts to fall. As soon as I reach my yard there is no signal and if there is its one bar and no data. Called Verizon many times on the issue and they told me I had 2 choices, get a network extender or cancel my contract. But I would have to pay more money to have a signal I already pay for, and the extender they cannot guarantee it will work. this is unsat and we should not have to pay additional for service we already pay for. Since they say they have the best network in the country. So poor service

All 4 family members have trouble with the service. We are not able to make a phone call or send a text from inside our home. It is even worse on Eglin AFB, FL. We have to walk around outside to talk on our cell phones and the calls still get dropped. It has been this way for years but we were locked into contracts so we didn't switch carriers. I have called numerous times and the carrier service tells me that they are upgrading to 4G so things will get better... after 4 years the service still sucks.

My wife and I switched from Verizon to t mobile wanting to save a few bucks. We checked the coverage map and all good for crestview to egin afb. We got the phones int ft walton than headed home. On 123 I noticed my phone on edge mode-2g, Got home still on 2g. I've called t mobile twice in 2 days to fix it. They said they are sending out an engineer and not to call again because there wont be any new information for the next 72 business hours. Needless to say if we don't get 4g in crestview and eglin we are going back to verizon... thank got for the 14 day buyers remorse.

ATT signal strength is TERRIBLE in Shalimar, near the airport, on Okaloosa Island and throughout Niceville even when speaking to other ATT users. I am ready for something better, but based on reviews there doesn't seem to be any better options. Even after purchasing a Micro Cell from ATT service is still lousy. Do we just live in an unimportant or low population area?

Sprint data rates are terrible. Barely receive at 40 kilobit on 3G and 150 kilobit on 4G. All together its worst than AT&T 2G edge network and AT&T is terrible.

I've tried T-Mobile, Sprint (absolute worst in our area), and AT&T. T-Mobile works well until you leave new 98. Then you're lucky to receive any signal. Sprint, they were so horrible I paid $600 (three lines X $200ea) to break the contract. AT&T, phone would show a decent signal. However, callers would go straight to voice mail and sometimes it would take hours for the phone to tell me a message was waiting. Like Sprint, I spent $600 to break the contract. I been with Verizon just over one year and it has been the choice I've made in awhile. When I travel to 30a, Sandestin, Mack Bayou, Driftwood Estates, Regatta Bay, etc... the phone works! I don't have to go outside to pick up a signal at home. I can receive calls while sitting on the couch.

I have been a Sprint customer for many years. I moved to Freeport 2 years ago only to find my contract with Sprint is now being terminated because it is only on roaming here and we are over our "allowed" unlimited roaming mins. I would NOT recommend Sprint to anyone! horrible customer service - Sprint gave us a box that plugs into our internet that was supposed to give us a signal here but doesn't work! save your money and pick a better carrier !
