I have us cellular and have for the last 7 yrs. My phone is 65 a month for 1100 min., free incoming calls, free nights and weekends, easyedge, and unlimeted text. I also lost my phone, they called other stores to find one I liked at 1/2 price. Their customer service is great!...sometimes slow at the one by Hobby Lobby...but other than that NO Complaints!!! My BF has cell one now bought out by at&t. His service is okay but the rates did go up. I admit sometimes I forget to pay my bill(like 5 days late, they don't charge me a late fee) AT&T charges him is he is even 5 minutes late. I agree with a late fee but seriously they are ready on the dot to charge that fee. Hope this helps.

at&t is ok but when they bought out cell one they did not get half the towers cell one had and they never told anyone when they switched over from cell one to at&t

I HAVE 3 LINES WITH 700 ANYTIME MINS. UNLIMITED NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS,UNLIMITED TEXT,FREE MOBILE TO MOBILE,FREE LONG DISTANCE,NO ROAMING AND MANY OTHER PERKS FOR ONLY $125.
MY SISTER HAS US CELLULAR AND HAS HAD ALOT OF PROBLEMS BUT OF COURSE SHE IS STILL IN HER TWO YEAR CONTRACT SO SHE HASN'T SWITCHED.

What about coverage? Are there big gaps in coverage?

Is AT&T that bad? What about Verizon?

I know US Cell has 3G data (EVDO) as does Verizon.

no at&t is not bad at all,they also have 3g data.
the coverage depends on the area you are in the same as with any service provider.

The service is about the same with his at&t vs my cellular one coverage.
My opinion seems to like at&t but I do not want to pay $125 a month...like I said above I pay $65 a month for 1100 anytime min, free incoming calls, free mobile to mobile, easyedge(which cost me $10 a month...no big need for it so you may not want it...and reminds me I need to cancel that:))., free nights and weekends, free text and picture text. I don't have the roaming but I don't need it. With my plan it was like an extra 10 a month too.
Oh and I always sign a new 2 yr contract...so I can get the newer phone for cheaper. So I am still in a contract too.
I have friends who didn't like sprint or verizon though.
Since my BF and I think at&t and us cell have about same service as for the coverage...just go to us cell and at&t and inquire to see what will be cheapest and work best for you.

I have AT & T. It is good. iPhone is awesome. However, AT & T is NOT 3G, yet. It still runs on EDGE network (slower). They are supposed to go 3G, as well as offer MMS but keep postponing it.
My wish is they would have better public communications with their customers about what is really going on with them.

US Cell, I never lose service... anywhere... $10 for unlimited data usage which I use constantly with gmail, yahoo, myspace, etc. There texting plans are decent as well. Get a national plan, I recomend the 1000, thats what I have. You never roam, all incoming calls are free and nights starting at 7 and weekends starting Fri night at 7. If you go with a new phone, get the LG Banter.

We are moving and I am still in my contract. So we asked the cost of changing my us cellular number or just adding no roaming. No cost for number change and adding no roaming to mine is 12.95mnth. We went to his at&t and it is going to cost $18 to change area number. Plus they told us adding me required me getting a phone from them...I can't use my current one. WHY??? The lady said it was just part of the deal. Has anyone else ever heard of having to do this???

Anyway we are also getting married and have decided to both get on us cellular. It is only $10 to add on his phone. It has been the least hassle and cost.

If one ever covers the more rural areas, it will be that one.
