Hello all, I'm from Indiana and usually have outstanding reception with Verizon. However, I am part of a research project in Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge which is in NM, and my verizon phone gets next to no reception. I get one bar of "EV" whatever that is and one bar of "1X", so when I try to make a call it usually drops very quickly. What I really don't understand is other people in the same place as me that have Sprint and AT&T get pretty much full service. Is my phone not roaming for some reason? I have a LG Chocolate (VX8550) and the system select is set on automatic and I also am supposed to have "nation wide coverage". Any help or suggestions would be highly appreciated.
