This is a constant problem for my family (4 phones) here in the Virginia
Voice mails sometimes arrive immediately and other times have taken as long
as until the next day.
Also have constant signal and dropped call problems throughout this area. On
3 occasions already we have gone without service for several hours due to
"tower problems", and have to call billing each month (3 months now) to get
all the roaming charges removed (again blamed on tower problems).
I am not very impressed with the service since they took over SunCom.
