Hanging issues placing and receiving text messages, calls and data from towers but shows 1- full bars for signal strength. Anyone else or is this a phone issue?

Yes. Telus has stated that the one tower is overloaded and they are going to upgrade it with more channels although when that happens is anybody's guess. They also state that 4G cell phones will cut out a 3G or lower grade cell phone. I have read recently Telus is planning another tower north of Blackfalds. I have had really bad service during the installation of fibre optics in Blackfalds but it has improved and now I get a average of 2 bars signal and much fewer dropouts.
