Does anyone know why BG doesn't have Verizon? I'm moving to BG soon (I have Verizon cell service) and thought I'd change my phone number to have the 270 area code, but Verizon told me there are no towers in BG and no offices. They use other companies towers so their customers phones will still work in the BG area. Verizon said they would have service there if they could, but have no plans to service the BG area in the near future.

So, are they blackballed or something???

Verizon does not have towers here because bluegrass cell. owns the rights from the fcc. every so often the block are put up for sell by the fcc and bluegrass has bought the use of them. the fcc does not sell them often so that maybe why verizon has no towers here. plus if you do keep your verizon service you will be able to make and receive calls but other services like web and pic messaging may not work or work slow. hope this helps.

Thank you! Your answer was a lot more informative than what Verizon told me! I don't have to worry about web and pic messaging. I'm one of those very few people who just use their phone to make phone calls! Guess I'm cell phone "challenged".

That is a State Secret.
