Cell Phone Service reviews in Portland

Real People ~ Real Reviews ~ Real Results

  • It's not so much that they've done anything particularly unusual, helpful, extraordinary or anything. It just works out that it's a reasonable cost and less hassle. I converted my land line into a cell phone and then transferred the same cell phone number. Their service, billing, and everything just seems smooth, easy and reasonably priced. As it turns out I didn't buy one of their cell phones, I had another phone that was compatible.There was no problem for them to be able to work with that. It's worked out. It was more like five or six years ago. I have a vacation cabin, so I ended up canceling the landline there. Wherever I am I have a cell phone and I don't have to fool with two different phone numbers. It's Kind of a different arrangement and my relationship with them is more than just getting a monthly bill and rarely having rarely anything that goes wrong .or a reason to conI haven't had to do it.

  • In the Portland area where I live, anywhere where there is kind of a valley or a neighborhood that is kind of sitting lower than the other, there is no signal system. They need to more accurately plan out their cell tower. The price is fairly decent, for 6 gigabits of data that is a pretty good price! I do have the service and it is very fast when I am connected.

  • It has been okay. But I wished I would have stayed with Verizon, as far as the service itself. I backpacked in the past and when we were way up in the middle places, where you don't get as good service, Verizon worked and AT&T didn't. I think they're probably fine in metro areas. I especially wouldn't want them in other places. I don't think it's as good. When I bought our iPhone, I did one of those two year contracts with AT&T and I was immediately sorry with the service. It was not terrible but the reception wasn't as good as Verizon. But I haven't had any trouble with them. The price is high. To me, $115.40 for two phones that are not used a lot, is high. I had AT&T on my iPad and I kept on having difficulty with the iPad, even though I had two iPhones. I called them and called them and finally I went in to Apple and they said it was AT&T. So they finally sent me a SIM. I would talk to them and it would work for about a day and then it would go out. Then, they would go through all this stuff. Finally, I just said, "Hey, forget that. I'll just use Wi-Fi exclusively for my iPad and I'm not going to use AT&T anymore," because they couldn't make it work. They would make it work for less than a day and then it would go out again. So I had my AT&T service removed from the iPad.

  • It is okay. They've got the best coverage but their billing is just... it is just fine. It is way too expensive. I think it is ridiculous what you pay for a data plan. It is just a hard one to grade's been up and down. After all these years I know it is what it is. It is all about how much it costs with me and then the use of it when you go to a foreign country. It gets mixed up between local and travel needs that I have.

  • And I've been with them for probably almost 15 years, I bet. I still have to do the two year thing so I am locked in and I have a phone that I don't like. Here I am, I got a phone and I'm disappointed with the phone and yet I can't upgrade until the two years. I just feel like at some point after the loyalty that you show these companies, there is really something sort of wrong about the fact that you don't have much freedom in choosing how you spend your money.

  • Its about a hundred bucks for 2 lines and data. I think its about 4gb, 2 per phone. I feel like maybe they should be a little more competitive and plans and pricing. I definitely experience some dead zones when I'm traveling.

  • I used them January first.  It's unlimited phone text and data for two phones for $160 a month.  There's a few things they can't fix.  I think the price is a little high but I like their services.  Right by my home is a spot where that the service gets lost.  I go a mile from my house and there are places that don't have service.  Overall there is spots where it works fine though.

  • I've been with them for 15 years. I don't really have any complaint. They badger me with e-mails and all kinds of things just like if I'm going to buy an iPhone. Next month, I'll get e-mails that say to try the new Samsung Galaxy whatever.

  • .They're  a big company with offices all over. I have a prepaid cell phone and use the internet when reloading my card and if there are any issues they're good at responding. Its a pretty good service.

  • Their service is horrible. The sales people, when you do the initial setup, they are liars. They lie about pricing, they lie about speeds available. Outside of their sales people, the customer service is horrible. They do not honor anything that the local sales people have said and their billing is, they change their billing around during the billing cycle.
