I have a Tracfone which works perfectly everywhere in Sonoma county except Guerneville and Occidental. I can understand little or no signal on the highways coming into the two towns but I got into Guerneville and no signal. Some say maybe at the Safeway parking lot. Is that it? Safeway???? Good luck to anyone needs medical help or an auto breakdown.Was this review helpful to you?
Im on a Housing Voucher and finally found a place in Guerneville and now find Cell service is basically non-existent in the area. I tried on Hwy. 116 and Bohemian Hwy. that come into the area. I thought once I got into town I could call out. NOPE. I read another's review and they said one might get a signal at the Safeway in town. What about the isolated roads coming into town? A medical emergency or car breakdown would leave a person stranded. This is scary. I understand there are disabled folks in town that can't access 911 / medical assistance. NOT good! Guerneville and Occidental are towns in dire need of a tower and service. My sister lives in Forestville and if I'm on my way there I cannot phone her. (about 7 miles away) Not happy about feeling so isolated.Was this review helpful to you?
Guerneville is notorious for limited cell coverage, but as far as I can tell, AT&T is the worst of the bunch. Came to this site to see if there was a better alternative. Anecdotally, I have heard that Verizon is somewhat better.Was this review helpful to you?
Terrible reception for AT&T. I had to drive to Sebastopol for reception. Will someone please convince everyone to install a tower in the Guerneville area?Was this review helpful to you?
Until today June 18 I had great reception with Metro. They were bought up by TMobile and suddenly this morning I have no reception at all. I was warned by the techs at Metro that this would happen in a few months but apparently they stepped up the time table. Now will be forced to switch to the much more expensive Verizon as they have a monopoly on coverage here in GuernevilleWas this review helpful to you?
I commute to work from Santa Rosa to Guerneville daily and AT&T's reception is a joke. After passing Woodenhead winery on River Rd. service drops completely. The duration of the road cycles between 1 bar and searching until you get to Rio Nido, where you get 2-3 bars if you're lucky. But upon entering downtown Guerneville it drops back to 1 bar / searching. Virtually no service if you walk indoors anywhere and the only reliable place to make a call is the Safeway parking lot. I have had AT&T for years now (mostly because I got grandfathered into their unlimited data plan) and was hoping for them to do something about their terrible reception in West Sonoma County, but it looks like I will have to follow the crowd and switch to Verizon. Two thumbs way down...Was this review helpful to you?
Local reports getting 3 of 4 bars solid with Verizon, but (separately) would prefer an alternative service plan, like my Virgin Mobile with no reception whatsoever in Guerneville.Was this review helpful to you?

I have 2 bar usually but recently It has been going in and out. I had originally though AT&T was putting up newer towers (maybe 4G) but iv have been wrong... I am very dissatisfied with at&t. I ONLY keep them because I'm grandfathered into an older unlimited plan but if them make me switch when I get the new note 2 then ill probably change to a different carrier.Was this review helpful to you?
I am very frustrated and have been trying to get assistance through the carrier... Everyone that has moved into this complex of apartments having the same problem. No CELL service. Some have accessed Landline service through Lifeline... ATT ? I am permanently disabled and just moved into this address... It is my opinion that this is very dangerous to not be able to access even 911, let alone access medical services that are local or within 30 miles of this address. I am frustrated and unsure if I will even be able to remain. Communication is key in this world... CAN YOU HELP ME?Was this review helpful to you?
