    Maybe someone in the TracFone section has experience in your area of the state and can share it if you post there

    It would be useful to know what model phone you have on TracFone and which carrier it's on.. . Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile.

    If your phone has a SIM card..
    The first six digits of the SIM # determine the carrier: 890141 = AT&T, 891480 = Verizon, 890126 = T-Mobile

    People who live in my area (NC beach town) complain of similar issues on Verizon post paid. I have spotty service too, but I'm paying $100/year for mine, vs. $80/month, so I can't complain.

    tracfonehater, your post is ridiculous. You complain, but provide NO USEFUL INFORMATION!

    Provide the info tfusr19 requested, in addition to a more exact location, and I'm sure people here will help you pick the correct network to make TF useful for you.

    User name is instructive.

    ATT & Verizon coverage looks solid west of both Madison & Milwaukee, if that is the OP's location ? ATT has a big hole farther west of Madison. I did not look at T-mobile map.

    I'm sure there have been times when many of us here would have felt like choosing that username.

    Maybe we can help the OP if they come back or they have found a satisfactory provider.

    The Mod said the post was moved from General Discussion....the OP might not be able follow it here. My guess is it's a one-off rant anyway.

    The OP made 3 posts (Click on his forum name-->View Forum Post), all to complain about Tracfone. I don't bother helping someone who came into a new forum blasting with both barrels.

    Amen, I've had 13+ years of savings with TF

    Can't imagine what I would have spent with Verizon or AT&T
