As a former manager in the wireless industry, I know that no company will ever offer perfect service because of the nature radio transmissions. Nevertheless, it can be frustrating trying to find the best carrier. I've tested all four majors and found that Verizon has the best overall coverage in the S.F. Bay Area. However, they put no usable signal into the ground floor of my house. Sprint and T-Mobile offer an in-building booster but don't work in the places where I hike. My solution has been less than perfect. I now use T-Mobile for my main service but keep a $10 a month Verizon prepaid flip phone to carry in case of a health emergency on the trails (I have a deadly bee sting allergy).

Can not get enough bars in my house. Have to relocate from family room to living room. Way too expensive. Really upset I had to lose my unlimited data when I added my father to the plan.

No Verizon while staying at Safari West ? And totalling frustrating commuting from Sonoma valley to Napa valley and not having Verizon on one of the big commute roads... .especially while my sister had 5 bar LTE with AT&T ?

Strong 4G LTE signal. Very usable data (20MPS+) and no issues with voice or text messaging. Big Red for the win here!

I've had a $10 tracphone for about a year and it's great, my dad switched from AT&T to a $10 tracphone and has not only had the same phone for over 3 years (even with heavy use it still keeps a charge for about a week and shows use but it still works perfect) but has had zero problems and gets great coverage pretty much everywhere. There is one small tradeoff, you must get the 1500 mins $200 online only offer off the tracphone website, you get a year to use it and if (or rather when) that time (though doubled automaticly to 3000 mins runs out you just add more and you good to go. For the record I've had virgin mobile (sprint) and net 10 and both were so-so or much worse. As for smartphones I'm looking at either Verizon prepaid or tracphone as tracphone runs on verison for smartphones and both have great rates and coverage.

The only place on my lot that I can make or receive calls is at the very back of my deck in the back yard. No reception in house or anywhere else. Understand that living in the country can be a big problem for cell reception, but should be able to get out of contract.

Cell phone spotty at the junior college and also at house. Works fair. I do have a 2 year old smart phone that I dropped many times over the 2 years, not sure if that is a factor (phone works fine though)

Always great reception in SR, Rohnert Park and Windsor. No dead spots always full bars. No trouble at all, no dropped calls. Just expensive.

I average 1.5-2 bars at home and in north SR. No reception at all in several places. The best reception I get is when I'm nearly in Windsor.
