    Has anyone been to the Cherokee NC area lately? The coverage map shows it covered.

    AT&T and Verizon are ok in Cherokee, NC
    The Harrah's Cherokee Casino area had good coverage.
    I was there a few months ago.
    Sprint & SunCom are unheard of in that area.

    It is good to hear that AT&T has coverage now.

    No not in WNC,
    US Cellular has the 800 mhz license instead.

    Alltel is however over all the rest of NC & SC & Northeast TN.

    In WNC an Alltel phone will roam on Sprint or Verizon.
    An Alltel phone can also roam on US Cellular for free in WNC, despite a solid roam symbol.

    Which is why I stay on a greater freedom plan. You can roam free on any network in the state with one of those plans.

    That said I think some people have found that even on national plans, most USCC systems are free to use.

    I could have sworn I got charged roaming when I roamed on USCC on a trip to Cherokee last year (I am on National Freedom). However, on a recent trip to WV I roamed on USCC and was not charged.

    No I have Nat'l Freedom 900, and sometimes when I goto Asheville,
    I purposely force my phone to & leave my phone on USCC (SID 246)
    I've used alot of minutes on them, and I have never gotten charged on USCC 246.

    Trust me, I've used USCC alot in WNC (and also SID 309 in NW NC) , you will not get charged on nat'l freedom.
    Try roaming on them next time you go there.
