Hi folks. We are moving to the W-S area (lewisville) in July. I'm in the market for a new cell phone and would like some feedback on the cell service in the area. I currently have AT&T and don't want to re-up with them if the service there isn't as good as it is here. I am an iPhone lover so I guess my choices are either AT&T or Verizon.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

AT&T has been good to me since we moved here 4 years ago. The only spot I have issues with is by the airport in greensboro, other than that no prob. I can't say I've spent much time in Lewisville, but driving around the area I've never lost a signal. I drive all over the place and have found them pretty reliable. My wife is on pageplus, which runs on Verizon and has no issues at all. I don't think you'll have a problem with either. I tried sprint, but the reception was horrible. We live at the bottom of a small valley and I would have to walk up to the end of my driveway to get coverage. It seemed to be like that everywhere too, one second you're ok, the next you drop. I've also looked at T-mobile and wasn't really satisfied with their "3g/4g" coverage, I never dropped a call, but their higher speed data was spotty.

There are spots for each. Check your serve when you get here. Before you do anything.

When we first moved here 5 years ago, we couldn't get Verizon service at all in our neighborhood, but it was okay around town. Another family member had a terrible time with Sprint. We have had no problems at all with AT&T.

I'm pretty sure T-Mobile uses the AT&T network, if not, they will be since AT&T bought them in March. In any case, we've been on AT&T and now T-Mobile for years and I have always had the same dead spot on highway 311 between Johnson St and 68, this is a wide open high traffic area, yet it is consistantly a dead zone. I also get dead zones along highway 158 in Winston-Salem (in a hilly area, that doesn't surprise me at all).

I have had Sprint for close to 10 years now; and I can really only think of one small stretch of road in HP, along Waterview, I have every have dropped calls.

I live in HP, work in Greensboro, have family in WS and go all over every where else in between and I can honestly say I never get dropped calls. Sure, there's the occasional bad signal down in someone's basement or something, but I have no complaints with Sprint's Service-10 years worth.

I think sometime's it can be as much the phone you get as your service provider.

We had Sprint when we first moved here, and had terrible reception. Now we are with Verizon (last two years) and have had no problems whatsoever.

Good luck with your move!
