1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Main Quad, Stanford, CA 94305 |

Anywhere on the Stanford campus, my reception with Verizon is atrocious. Even when I see 3 bars, I often can't place a call, and calls to me get routed to voice mail without my knowledge most of the time. Reception is also very bad on Foothill Expressway everywhere in between Stanford and Cupertino. Truly a shame, because I get very good reception at home in SOMA.

Overall have had better coverage with Verizon. Used to have Sprint. Only place where Sprint coverage was better was in one building on company campus in Sunnyvale.

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Page Mill | 280, Palo Alto, CA 94301 |

As you exit Page Mill on 280 and go up the crest approaching Foothill, there's a 25-50 ft section within which my Nextel phone disconnects. It happens about 9 out of 10 times, so I'm usually prepared to redial.

Cannot make calls in my house. Only hear a third of what people say to me. T-Mobile said there would be an upgrade in my area in 5/05.

AT&T Wireless (GSM)

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Mission Blue | Monarch, Brisbane, CA 94005 |

New tower in area provides decent coverage for AT&T NextGen in Altamar complex. Cingular users also seize these towers; phone will say "Cingular Extend."

Absolutely no coverage inside the house. Depending on which direction I'm facing, I will have maybe one bar.

Verizon

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Main St. | 6th, Montara, CA 94037 |

Data service unusable here. Cannot send pictures or text messages. Phone indicates "1x" network (this is verizon's CDMA 2000 service which has been declared "3G" but is more like 2.5G) active, typically showing 0 or 1 bars of signal strength. Yet, voice calls go through even at 0 bars. Signal fades entirely from time to time, dropping the phone into "power saving" mode wherein no incoming calls are received and no messages are received! Marginally better than Sprint, which is almost entirely useless around here.
