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.

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.

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).

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.

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.)

I recently purchased an iPhone and was told that AT&T had three towers in the Galesburg area. I find coverage to be very spotty and it can move from full power to no connection within a few feet. In my home connection strength can vary significantly even while sitting in the same chair. I plan to keep my AT&T service plan until iPhones are able to use other carriers. If AT&T reception improves I'll stay with them. AT&T staff have been very kind and supportive but they can't provide any information regarding future reception issues in our area.

T-mobile does not service Monmouth, IL, so reception is virtually non-existent. US Cellular has a near monopolistic lock on market in Monmouth. Some Verizon coverage, but dead spots.

I travel into most of the smaller towns around galesburg as well and I love my phone the reception on it is great so is the battery life. Cellular Plus loc in the sandburg mall also gave me a free car charger and a great package on the accessories for my phone.
