Service not too great in the town of New Lenox. The further east I go into Joliet, the better it gets... almost full. In my subdivision, especially, my bars average two... but will certainly drop to one on many occassions. A few bars in the Frankfort, Mokena area, but when I get to Tinley or further north, it's full service. Verizon Wireless would be a great phone if I wasn't in the New Lenox area. Maybe I should live between Tinley and Chicago. By the way, that *228 thing that "updates" your phone is so phony. They tell you that in hopes that you'll do it and that psychology will convince you that your phone is working better for the moment.Was this review helpful to you?
Nextel gets NO service in Seneca IL. I absolute HATE Nextel and once my comtract (the one I cannot use in my hometown) I will NEVER use NEXTEL again!Was this review helpful to you?
We found Verizon to be extremely unreliable throughout Morris, and between Morris and Rt. 52. Fortunately, Verizon customer service was excellent. They viewed my dropped call history, and flagged my account as having pour service. I was able to get out of my contract without paying the early termination fee.Was this review helpful to you?
No Sprint service anywhere in the entire town of Odell even though the Bloomington store will show you a map showing strong coverage all along I-55. Phone shows "No Service" in all of Odell. I have to drive out to the cemetery to get a signal. I previously had Cingular and changed to Sprint because of very spotty Cingular service. Went from bad to worse.Was this review helpful to you?
They need another cell tower in this area. Sprints coverage map shows my location as being a strong signal area-best. If this is not intentional deception, they need to change the map or add a tower. I also have a Verizon LG 4650 phone that gets no reception / signal from my home. That makes Sprint better than Verizon and a pigeon with a message attached to his foot better than both. The Sprint phone does work great everywhere but the house. The Verizon phone is poor most of the time and below average at best. I use both phones between Minooka and Batavia every day. nobody is surprised when they can't reach me on the Verizon phone. When they can't reach me on the Sprint phone they know I am home and they call me on the land line.Was this review helpful to you?
Normally I have to call the caller back on a land line. Had same problem with NextelWas this review helpful to you?
Verified with Sprint that there are no towers close enough to provide service to most of Elwood. Might get a signal outdoors, but don't count on it in the house.Was this review helpful to you?
Never Drop calls with this phone. Occasionally dropped calls with old Verizon Phone but newer phones work great.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception on Alltel anywhere in the Bourbonnais / Bradley / Kankakee area is great. I can often get two bars inside large buildings when others get no reception. When outside I almost always have either 4 or 5 bars. Couldn't be happier with Alltel. Definately 5 out of 5 stars.Was this review helpful to you?
New tower southeast of Herscher a few months ago. Now I get good reception. Recommend Verizon. Now they need to work on service to the southwest side of KankakeeWas this review helpful to you?
