Samsung Galaxy III 4G phone is what I have and cannot get reception most of the time, I have dropped calls, broken reception cannot understand caller hearing only bits and pieces of conversation than loose call, texts will not send many times or I get them hours later. I am paying High dollar for a phone that just won't work or U.S. Cellular is not working in this area. I have been told by many the reception for US Cellular is terrible and most are switching to Verizon.Was this review helpful to you?

Verizon has horrible coverage in Oquawka, IL. If I send a text, it takes forever to go through. Talking on the phone consist of very broke up conversation and dropped calls. The 4G goes down to 1x.Was this review helpful to you?

Regarding the recent posts below, I called AT&T this morning and there is a service outage. Rep said it's due to congestion. (I'm guessing the congestion could be related to Knox College students moving in.) AT&T is working on their tower and hope that service will be restored today (Sat, Sept 3, 2011).Was this review helpful to you?
I want to agree with the previous post. Dropping son off at College yesterday. All three iPhone had no signal most of the day in most of Galesburg. Occasionally a bar or two would appear but only for 5-10 minutes but gone for an hour or two in between.Was this review helpful to you?
We arrived from Chicago to Galesburg today. We had AT&T coverage all the way, including a spot at the entrance to Galesburg. Then the connection just... disappeared. Absolutely nothing, zero signal. We have 4 different cell phones in the family and all of them went dead. Other visitors we met confirmed they have no AT&T signal too. I thought it may be just a serious outage, but there is no information about any reception problems in the area on AT&T site. What worries me even more are comments from locals, who say that this is how it is: AT&T coverage is extremely spotty and unreliable. Their advise is to go with Verizon. (I'm submitting this comment via wi-fi, since my phone still doesn't work.)Was this review helpful to you?
