    Voice vs Data Coverage map

    Ive been looking at switching phone companies and looked at US Cellular and see that in some places im interested in, in rural WV the coverage map shows coverage for data but not for voice... anyone know if this is accurate? id have data but no voice coverage? this is in and around Harmon, WV

    Possibly indicates there's no 1x coverage. If you have VoLTE you should be good to go.

    Actually, in Harman, WV, the service there is roaming. So you may not be allowed to sign up for service, and if you are, you would be roaming. If you would like native service in Harman, you should either go with AT&T or T-Mobile. I am not sure who you have now. I would not personally recommend T-Mobile though if you ever do much traveling in WV around the central region of the state. Much of that is still US Cellular LTE roaming and will be until Sprint is fully combined into it. I live in Beckley and I can confirm that with the T-Mobile phones I've seen. I have US Cellular personally, but what you get in Harman will be roaming.

    I used to do a good bit of traveling through WV for work and from what I have seen AT&T is pretty much the king in WV.
