    Correct, there are no coverage gradients available there, but service is present.

    So how can you find out where there are towers in my area? I am in Conn. and sometimes coverage stinks even though their maps show nice dark green areas....so how can I know where the towers are??

    If the coverage is that bad there I would recommend looking into another carrier. No carriers will tell you exactly where their towers are, but you usually can figure it out by looking at their coverage maps.

    Web site coverage maps are never going to be completely accurate. There will always be pockets of poor service in a dark green area and even pockets of excellent coverage in light green areas. There's really no way to make it an exact science but in my opinion the Sprint maps are usually pretty good.
