Nextel

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Shoreview | Monaco, Redwood City, CA 94065 |

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.

I'm always getting dropped calls in my house and when I'm out. I can't wait to switch to T-Mobile.

Nextel

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Swallowtail Court | Mission Blue, Brisbane, CA 94005 |

Sprint PCS and Nextel are the only two services I'm aware of that work on this side of the community. Reception is very good from the softball field all the way west on Mission Blue.

MetroPCS

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | El Capitan Dr. | Clearfield, Millbrae, CA 94030 |

Terrible reception, must stand out in the front driveway to make a call. Only time I get reception inside the house is on a clear sunny day, and at most just 1 bar. Phone to phone SMS is bad up here as well and email to SMS is completely unreliable and useless. Metro phones up here will discharge their battery supply in under 1 hour due to constantly searching for the local digital cell site.

AT&T Wireless (TDMA)

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Dartmouth | San Carlos Ave., San Carlos, CA 94070 |

This phone worked fine in my house more than a year) until last week. I guess AT&T converted the TDMA tower to GSM to keep me happy - NOT!

AT&T Wireless (GSM)

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Reina del Mar | Hiawatha Ave., Pacifica, CA 94044 |

No reception at all (both GSM and TDMA) with AT&T wireless up here in the Valle Mar area. It comes in as you get closer to the intersection of Reina del Mar and Hwy 1.

Sprint

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | I280 | From Daly City before Geneva Ave. Exit, Pacifica, CA 94044 |

I get drop calls whenever I pass this certain part of 280 coming from Daly City just before Geneva Ave exit. Also I have another drop calls coming from 280 and exit Hwy 1 to go to Pacifica. I think that area needs some fixing by Sprint. Other than that Sprint has good service.

Sprint has a Dead zone on interstate 280 from Daly city just before you hit Geneva Ave. Also Sprint has a deadzone coming from 280 exiting towards Highway 1 to Pacifica.
