Can you hear me now?

You must remember that terribly annoying (yet terribly accurate) cell phone commercial… “can you hear me now?….. okay, can you hear me now?…. how about now?”

That commercial? Is my life. Actually, when I’m out in public and I have to repeat that same.exact.phrase 5 times, I feel like I’m on the commercial. Are there cameras hiding somewhere?!

And what’s sad is that I’m not alone:

Why haven’t we switched? Ahhh I don’t know! Contracts? And because I generally think all cell phone services must be terrible? Basically, I agree with the results of the survey below, which asked 1208 people across the country.

U.S. Cellular has launched the Hello Better Campaign. They’re encouraging people to say goodbye to their dysfunctional wireless relationships and HELLO! to something better. “Goodbye neglect, hello respect!” They believe we deserve better and I have to say… I agree! I always just thought poor cell reception was something I had to live with, but maybe I don’t! I have had this carrier for years–definitely time to ditch and try someone new.

In addition to passionate associates, U.S. Cellular provides customers with unique benefits such as the industry’s only points-based rewards program, no contract after the first contract ends, free incoming calls and texts, free Overage Protection and free Battery Swap for your device! They have some great plans to check out.

Do you have reception issues with your cell phone? Dropped calls? Other issues with your service provider??? Have you ever ditched a provider for a new one?! Would love to hear your stories!

I participated in this sponsored post campaign for One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.

  • I can’t believe how many people are dissatisfied with their cell phone providers…wait yes I can lol. For me it depends on the day!

  • Our service is pretty good for the most part but we joke that my parent’s house is like the Bermuda Triangle for cell phone because hardly anyone can get service there when they are inside. Super annoying. They need to switch and find one that works.

  • I used to be with Verizon for years, but switched to ATT for the iPhone. Never had problems with Verizon. Excellent service and signal. With ATT I get a few dropped calls every once in a blue moon (one today actually), but nothing that would make me want to switch providers.

  • We used to have this problem with T-Mobile but it has vastly improved over the past year thankfully! So frustrating!

  • We have been with Verizon for several years, and while it’s not always the greatest, it’s the most affordable option here. Plus, my husband gets a discount on the service because of where he works. So, for us, the service is worth the price we pay.

  • I’m tired of the Verizon contract AND prices. Thanks for the review. Definitely something to look into.

  • I love the idea of having no contract. I haven’t renewed our last 2 phones and as soon as the rest are out of contract, I am making a switch. I hate being locked in for 2 years.

  • A friend of mine has US Cellular and loves them. I really should switch…but I just got locked into another 2 year agreement. Argh!

  • Never heard of this before…but I have heard that cell service in the US sucks in comparison to access outside the US…I think we are being taken advantage of!!!

  • I’ve never heard of them, thank you for sharing! I switched from one cell provider to another because of cost issues. It was cheaper to go on a family plan with my brother than to keep my own plan, and he’s on a different network.

  • I used to have a lot of issues with dropped calls, so we switched services and haven’t had issues since. Thank goodness!

    Now, don’t laugh at me. I pay $15 a YEAR for a TracFone and I love it. I don’t need it except for when I’m out and about and “may” need it. So it’s only for phone calls, I don’t even know how to text, but I’ve NEVER had issues with the cell service and no contract or anything that we’re locked into. If my husband, who has the “fancy” version of the Trac needs more minutes he just pays as he goes, he probably spends closer to $200 a YEAR. He uses his much more than I do. Staying at home, I just use our home phone, which is a version of Skype that again we pay less than $30 for the year. We’re all about cheap, but being reachable at this house. Nothing fancy, nothing to impress anyone. We do have iPod touches and that’s what we use for mobile checking of email or facebook.

  • I haven’t had any issues with our cell provider but have heard plenty of horror stories about others providers, my sisters phone is constantly dropping calls, pretty annoying!

    [Reply]

  • I have so many dropped calls with my current provider that they gave us a free signal booster to use in our own home, since the issue was the worst here. I still have the occasional “cutting out” but not nearly as bad. Companies need to step it up!
