We have now replaced our phones with newer ones, but last year we had great reception all over the Cedar Rapids Metro. Verizon is getting better in Iowa, they still need to improve in Northeast Iowa, but around here, it's great!Was this review helpful to you?
Can't complain I have had IWS, US Cellular, AT&T, Suncom, Verizon, and now Cingular all companies have bad reception through these areas, but I do love my Cingular service so far.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception dropped off shortly after I went from Wright Brothers Blvd.onto I-380. Bars slowly came back up the further south I drove. (IWS).Was this review helpful to you?
pretty decent... as long as you have a tri-mode handset.Was this review helpful to you?
Sometimes I get 5 bars, sometimes I get no bars, but Verizon gets, by far, the best reception in Mt. Vernon. Usually I get 2-3 bars.Was this review helpful to you?
Great coverage everywhere I've been in or around Cedar Rapids. Traveled south to Keokuk county and had great coverage. Traveled north to Mitchell county and had great coverage.Was this review helpful to you?
Signal shows full bars, but will get disconnected 3-5 times in a row. Tried on my older analog / digital phone and my wife's 1 year old all digital Samsung phone.Was this review helpful to you?
Outside get 2 bars. Indoor, get 1... maybe. Reps from Cingular say that despite the fact that they are putting in a major infrastruture upgrade in the state, they have no plans in my area. Said it wasn't populated enought to worry about. Out of 5 services available in the area, Cingular is the only one with problems. So much for customer service. I really wish they'd quit with the false advertising about their "great" coverage.Was this review helpful to you?
I've been with Verizon for almost 5 years now. The coverage has been good enough that I dropped my land-line service more than 3 years ago. This is also my third [different] phone. I've found that the choice of phones makes a major difference in the quality of the reception.Was this review helpful to you?
