I dunno, I get SOME coverage there--it's just intermittent. It is enough for me to make and receive phone calls (most of the time) and to send and receive texts (almost always).
I get something intermittent, sure. Their claim of "Best" is, well, bullshit.
Texts aren't usually a problem, thanks to SMS retrying for seven days. It'll get through eventually. Calls are choppy at best. 3G data coverage? I haven't seen download speeds like that since the days my internet connection announced itself with "kssshhkhkhshhhBEEPboopBEEPboop".
Hence the message on my phone tool listing...
(Sadly, AT&T is the best option I have. No signal from Verizon or Sprint; not sure about TMo, but they generally have a bad rep around the island.)
AT&T is the only option for me. And they even say I shouldn't have signal where I live. (I just happen to have a clear shot at their antenna on the neighboring mountain.)
Yeah, I've noticed that your house seems to be something of a cell phone dead zone. Have you considered a femtocell
, by any chance? I'm thinking about getting one for my apartment for Sprint since it's a big, concrete building and I'm living on the ground floor facing the interior courtyard. Needless to say, I drop calls pretty regularly.
Yeah, my pitiful three bars are in a dark orange area too.
