I have been with AT&T / Cingular for over 5 years now and live in south Omaha I have never had a problem getting reception in the house, basement or anywhere for that fact. I travel daily to Fremont and Lincoln and still great service.

I have had Alltel / Verizon for 20+ years. Just a few months ago my boyfriend and I started having some issues with the connection. We both have Verizon now. When at home or even in my neighborhood calls break up and sometimes even drop. I also found out that when I am home, sometimes my signal is so weak that my phone doesn't even ring. I didn't complain right away, however, when I received a note in mail from Verizon stating that my signal is even stronger now I had had it and contacted the company. At first, they told me that I would need to purchase extra items for a stronger connection. I told them that was not acceptable and they have dropped that. Since then I have called them three to four more times, and spent about two to three hours opening and reopening tickets and trying different things to fix this issue. The last time I talked to them they said that they had made the signal stronger in my neighborhood and that I just needed to dial *228 or something to fix it. I did this and NOTHING changed. I need to call them back and reopen the ticket... I just dreading it though... They did say once that if necessary they would let me out of my contract, however, being with the company for so long, I would prefer that they just fixed the problem.

Verizon confirmed just now on the phone that I am in a low signal area. I read on another post that Verizon must let you out of the contract with no early termination fee. I also read that Sprint is not a lot better. My New Every Two is due this month, so I could switch if I wanted to... Now what?

I'm freaking am tired of AT&T's sucky, cheap, pathetic signal. I want to get rid of them so bad because I know Version Wireless or Sprint will do the job for retaining signal in the 68111 area. I am not the only one with the issue because all my friends with AT&T agree with me that the signal is pathetic. They need to amp up the towers strength or something because its not just my phone, I have a whole set of kids who agree with me at school that AT&T is jacked up if they can get reception with the other major wireless carriers. Also, the amount of drop calls are just another piece of work from AT&T. Yeah, AT&T says they cover 97% of Americans, but they do it with a reception of 1 or 0 bars with the letter E reception instead of 3G coverage! Even outside of buildings It still isn't solved! Lesson to be learned: AT&T sucks, get the other carriers for Omaha for your own good!

Verizon has very good coverage throughout Omaha. I am a person who updates my PRL about every 60-90 days. Updating your PRL is very important so you get sufficient coverage. This gives your phone the most recent information on towers and coverage. to update your PRL call *228 and select option two. your phone may restart when finished if update is successful. Also, before traveling out of town, make sure you update your phones roaming capabillities (PRL) by again calling *228 and selecting option two.

There was terrible ATT signal until mid-Aug 2010. The number of bars would vary from 2 (Rarely) to 0 (most of the time. From mid-Aug2010, I have been getting full signal (all bars full).

I recently moved from Cathedral area to 96th and Blondo area. I have terrible coverage within my townhome and on streets nearby. Though the support person from Verizon was very helpful, even sending me an email with instructions for trouble shooting, it was to no avail. Trying to get technical help from the service center at 74th and Dodge is impossible, unless you want to spend 30-45 minutes waiting! Does anyone have suggestions for a better carrier? My contract is up August 13th and I would sure like to be able to receive and make calls from my home!

I am SO frustrated with Verizon coverage in midtown. It is a daily annoyance. I have dropped calls in my home office, and driving around town every single day. When I send texts, I frequently get, "Would you like to send when service is available?" I just found out today that every time I clicked Yes it sends it again, which is annoying to recipients. Sometimes when I am listening to voice-mail, I get, "If you'd like to make a call... " although I was connected and listening to messages for a few minutes successfully. WEIRD stuff. I am ashamed to be paying more than anyone else for this horrific service, plus I now acknowledge it's affecting my business at this point. I am shopping for a new provider today. PS- I was with Alltel / ancestors since 1992; since Verizon I have been frustrated but in denial until now.

I've had US Cellular for over 4 years and was a Blackberry fan for 3 of those years. However, when we moved to the South side of town, our reception went down the toilet. I am now unable to sit in my living room and make calls, text, anything. After being shown a coverage map by a US Cellular employee, I realized that we are in the middle of a 'sketchy' area of coverage. Bummer! We've been there for 2 years, and my signal just kept getting worse. So far, I have changed out the battery on my Tour, uploaded the new software package and added the new tower list... all to no avail. After talking with US Cellular, they said that it may just be my phone (which I knew was not the case as our other Blackberry has the same issues) so they gave me a Blackberry Curve to try instead. Same problems. Again I went to the US Cellular office and am now trying an HTC Touch Pro. So far the signal strength is better, not fantastic, but better. I do have to say, that thru all of my complaining and frustration, US Cellular has been working hard and doing all that they can to solve my troubles without the need to change services. I appreciate all that they have done, and hope that we are able to fix this trouble... I really don't want to have to find another carrier! Here's to hoping that the HTC fixes the trouble!
