    I recently moved to the area south of Burlington, NC in the Snow Camp area. I have Alltel, but service is basically non existent unless you live close enough to the Chatham County line to hit the Alltel towers in that county. I know alot of people around here have Verizon, but I have been told thier coverage is really spotty too unless you are near the tower. I really want a provider that can provide solid service in this area. When looking at most cell companies coverage maps it is almost like this area is in a hole of no service. If anyone is familiar with this area, can anyone tell me why this would be the case and what cellular provider might be the best to try? I would appreciate any help at all. Thanks a bunch. :)

    That's tricky, because it's really Alltel and VZW that work well in that area. You could try AT&T, but they're usually not as good as Alltel or VZW around the Triad or Triangle. If Alltel doesn't work for you, try VZW, and if that doesn't work, try AT&T. But outside of that...nobody else really works.

    Stay away from SunCom & Cricket if you want good solid coverage in your area.
    They are only along the interstate in and around the Burington area.

    Also, it appears that Sprint has a huge 25 mile hole in your immediate area, so don't choose them either.
    The closest (solid) Sprint coverage to you is I-85/I-40 to the north, US-421 to the west, or US-64 in Siler City to your south.

    as SQfreak said, if not Alltel, then Verizon or AT&T is your best bet.
