    Yes, this is the real reason why I have consistently advised folks to go
    with shorter contract length even though it costs more up front. It really
    sucks to be locked into a contract for service you find unacceptable and
    this can happen anywhere.

    Untimately, competition will force Verizon to fix its capacity problems or
    lose customers. It may be one of those things where they literally cannot
    build out as fast as they are taking on new customers. I do suspect they
    will fix the problem.

    I've had this often, particularly in seasonal usage areas. Nearest tower
    gets saturated, you get directed to a distant tower with weak signal.

    There is an easy test for this - try the phone at 3 AM when few folks are
    on! If you get a good signal, it most likely a tower saturation issue.
