1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Santa Inez | Poplar, Burlingame, CA 94010 |

Reception in this area is hit and miss. Better than two years ago, but still unacceptable. Is there a better carrier?

Once I get to Everglades is when I start seeing bars. They claim that if I stand outside my house I should be able to make and receive calls, right! Only a one year contract so I switched over to Cingular. They're the only ones I've seen receive service back here.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Emerald Hills | Jefferson / Farm Hill, Redwood City, CA 94062 |

It's really hard to say what "average" is around here because it seems that all the carriers suck. I get reception in my house, but only reliable on the second floor. I lose the signal on 280 at Woodside Road, but only in the third lane (really). 280 by alpine road is also problematic. Sometimes I lose the signal on Farm Hill but not always.

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Foothill | Arastradero, Stanford, CA 94305 |

Every day service cuts off as I travel towards Stanford on Foothill as I'm nearing Arastradero. Unbelievably reliable service here. Page Mill is also bad. The area around Stanford here is extremely spooty coverage and I can expect my calls to be dropped every day. Pathetic.

MetroPCS

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 3rd Ave. | S. Fremont St., San Mateo, CA 94401 |

Can not make a call from in my apartment (3rd floor) or outside from the landing or balcony. Reception is bad in most places in San Mateo and Burlingame where I have tried to make or receive a call. Most calls fail, are dropped, or are of such poor quality as to be unintelligable so that I have to hang up. Plan to return the phone but MetroPCS rule on returning the phone is less than 30 days use and less that 1 HOUR of use... I have used my phone for 1 hr. 8 min. 47 sec. (this total usage was for 33 calls... ) This was my first cell phone. Have had the phone 8 days. This "service" has reaffirmed everything I thought was true about cell phones. I need to find a plan that will work on the Peninsula especially along the 101 corridor.

I used to get an OK coverage from Cingular until they merged with AT&T. What's up with that?

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Oakdell / Stanford, Menlo Park, CA 94025 |

Poor reception in house. Best reception at T-Mobile hot points (e.g. Starbucks). T-Mobile customer supports has no solution.
