4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Artesia Blvd.And Carmenita Rd., Cerritos, CA 90703 |

Generally good outsude, but fairly weak and less stable inside home. May be because of two story homes all around. Would like some way to boost signal inside. Phone is 3 years old but still working. I had hoped new model might be better but reading reviews makes me think not.

Verizon sucks! I can not use my phone indoors ANYWHERE. It does not matter what city I am in, I can not get a good call unless I am outside, which is VERY annoying. Reading all these reviews it seems that there are alot of people that have problems in their house... is there ANY service that is good??????

We have AT&T GSM Service with Motorola V180 phones. I have noticed that the service seems to be getting worse. We experience frequent dropped calls and poor coverage. Incomming calls frequently roll over to voice mail.

Verizon has a dead spot on the top of Colima Road, between Mar Vista and Hacienda. There is another on the top of Idaho between Imperial Hwy. and Bastanchury Rd. Other that those two spots, service is fine in the area. Hilly areas seem to challenge any carrier's service. In this same area Cingular and Sprint have 0-1 bar but calls rarely go through or drop frequently.

Old AT&T TDMA service, worked well, until we went on vacation. We have two devices of the same model and manufacture date. Well, the situation is now that one teases you a bit letting you think you might get in a convo, the other just isn't that kinda girl and not a tease. The really fun part was while we were on vacation, all calls home, to the ATT, the ONLY phone service in the house, were met with all circuits busy or just no signal and straight to voice mail. Cingular states that they are "working" on the issue. Oh, and they would like to move us to the GSM service, it will be "definitely more reliable." Service is often good elsewhere in the area, but at home, no go. So, in conclusion, this service is like a cheating husband, great everywhere else, but lousy at home and worthy of a thrashing. Cheers

The signal is very unstable and regularly there is no reception at all. The strength of signal swifts from 0 to 2 back and forth and my cellular loses its connection very often. My wife's cellular phone, SAGEM, made in France, well-known with "better reception" in many countries, does the same thing here, poor reception, even though it had an excellent reception in Taiwan before we came back last month.

You know you're coming close to Biola when your cell phone reception drops in half (doesn't matter what brand according to the other students)! mostly no reception or one bar, sometime up to three. But that's deceiving. Often when have bars still can't get a good call through. More often than not, person being called can be heard, but caller is only heard in static or broken or dropped calls. When can find a golden spot the calls are crystal clear and work great - until you move your head.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Belmont Shore / Naples, Long Beach, CA 90803 |

Reception on Shore side of 2nd St.Bridge is never consistent, and spotty at best. Signal strength rarely exceeds 2-3 bars, and typically shows 0-1 bars. Independent of phone model (I've had several Nokias and currenty use an Audiovox) phone calls frequently ring once at most, and then go either directly to my voice mail, or to a recording saying my number (of 5 years) was no longer in service. Lovely. Signal strength on the Naples side of the bridge is usually around 3 bars. And on either side of the bridge, text message notification often comes hours after message was originally sent, and some messages are never received at all. (Tho I did get one last week, around the 5th of October, dated March 16! Go figure... )

Great reception with verizon. I have found that the phone makes a big difference! Friend has a LG phone cant get reception in her house (yorba linda) I get great reception there. I dont have dropped calls, no static. Great reception in my house, all areas of orange county, la county, Oregon, Canada, Hawaii everywhere. Always do your research on the phone before buying. Verizon has good customer service and good coverage in all areas that I have been in.

I am actually a Cingular subscriber that left a comment months ago (look below) about the poor reception in this area. Well, its because Cingular had me on the old AT&T network, which is TERRIBLE in this area. Do NOT sign up with Cingular in this area, because they put all new subscribers on the old AT&T network. It took months but I got them to switch me to roam on T-Mobile's network (which is the old Cingular network) and my reception is stellar. As soon as the switch was made, I got four-five bars and no more crossed calls. I will be switching to T-Mobile when my contract is up :)
