Cell Phones at ND?

<p>Anyone have advice for good cell phone company in South Bend/ND? Does Sprint work well?</p>

<p>I’ve heard that ND has really good cell phone coverage all over campus. I’ve personally had bad experience with Sprint, so I would recommend Verizon or TMobile. But thats just based on my own experiences, not whats happened on campus.</p>

<p>Verizon. I could explain, but I won’t bother. It’s the best. Trust me.</p>

<p>^^Agree! Cell towers were boosted to accommodate students. Never a problem!</p>

<p>Another vote for Verizon.</p>

<p>Ditto. No problems with Verizon.</p>

<p>How is AT&T? It’s almost time to renew a contract, and if it is bad it would be nice to know.</p>

<p>Not sure if these links work (nor how accurate they are) but here are some coverage maps of the South Bend area for various cell phone networks:</p>

<p>I’ve found that Sprint and TMobile are spottier than AT&T and Verizon.</p>

<p>& nkl811: Based on what everybody else is saying as well, I’d say Verizon is your best bet. You should be fine with AT&T though. Just look at affordable plans and decent phones as deciding factors for your next service choice, as I’m sure there won’t be that much of a difference in coverage.</p>

<p>Hope this somewhat helped</p>

<p>There’s some discussion from the ND Chat this spring about cell phone coverage. They say that ATT and Verizon both have decent coverage.</p>

<p>There isn’t a cell carrier with bad coverage at ND. That being said, AT&T and Verizon are the best.</p>

<p>AT&T does have some black-out areas on ND’s campus - my roommate had an iPhone with AT&T and he had some problem with it - never heard anything bad about Verizon.</p>
