Follow the steps below to solve this issue. Don't have the patience? Have a GetHuman pro do it for you.
Have you checked the service coverage map? It could just be that Verizon doesn't have as good of coverage in the new area and they will need to add some towers. http://vzwmap.verizonwireless.com/dotcom/coveragelocator/

I've had phone for 6 months. Towers were close but I was in another area in WI. Bill was paid and had plenty of minutes. Just no bars anywhere in door county.-
Sorry for the delay getting back to you. Have you checked the service coverage map? It could just be that Verizon doesn't have as good of coverage in the new area and they will need to add some towers. vzwmap.verizonwireless.com/dot...-
I checked coverage map and it shows good coverage. I've even checked through tracfone and they had towers in every town we were in.-
Wow that is very strange - what type of phone do you have? Has signal gotten better yet?-
I have a Samsung phone and yes now that we are home no problem-
I am glad you are getting signal now - If you want we have a suggestion page here on GetHuman - here is a link to a suggestion page I created for your problem ideas.gethuman.com/Verizon/nee.... The more like or "ups" it gets the more likely it will be heard by people like Verizon. Also, if you share with friends - the more likely it will be seen.-
