***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community!

Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
A once great coverage area now bounces between 1 and 2 bars

We have always (many since the Alltell days) had great service in our home and all around central Arkansas (72120 zipcode) for the past 3 weeks the service has degraded to the point of being quite unreliable.  Service has gone from 4 to 5 bars with 4G LTE down to bouncing between 1 and 3 bars sometimes displaying "mobile network not availabe".  This is happening on all of our devices not just 1 phone.  Friends and neighbors are having the same issue.  Discussion boards on other sites give the appearance that this is not an isolated issue. 

Even when my phone is indicating that I have (marginal) coverage I often cannot make or receive calls.  Text services seem to be a little more reliable than voice.

If the service remains this unreliable we will have to change providers.

same problem in scottsdale. Not a single Verizon cell phone user in our community of 200 homes can get more than 1-2 bars. It is a joke at the club. Impossible to work from home during CoVid. Our company will be changing to ATT or T Mobile.
