In the down town area on Main St.I can connect but the signal level leaves a lot to be desired.

Cingular is awful and sucks big time!. Can't wait for my contract to expire. Who cares about rollover minutes when you can't even use your phone. I work at second and folsom. When I am at the lounge / cafeteria there is not a single bar on the phone. The other carriers which my co workers have are having a "grand" conversation chatting away. I can't even get any connection. Do yourselves a favor and stay away from Cingular.. By the way I live in San Mateo and it doesn't get any better either... I can't even receive an incoming call in my own residence. Now that is pathetic! Stay away from Cingular!

Extremely unreliable coverage. Frequent call drops. When call doesn't drop, reception is so spotty that you can't hear anything anyway. In addition, my phone often switches to analog when I am at home which drains the battery.

TDMA service is failing fast. Usd to have good reception here and area, now spotty. Also becoming a problem in mid-town Palo Alto.

Very poor reception. Seems to have gotten worse over last few months.

People tend to report the places where they can't get reception. This may be useful, but if you are looking for a system that does work the information is not complete. There are antennas not listed on the map near the intersection of Ralston and Alameda for Cingular, Sprint and T-Mobile. I have Cingular and am close to the antennas. Surprise! Reception is great. Metro PCS has one just a couple of blocks West on Ralston; can't speak for service from it, but considering Metro PCS's reputation I suspect that reception is unusually good here! Verizon might (untested) be a bit worse here; no local antenna located in this area. Cingular generally works pretty well in the area after the acqusition of ATT; former ATT GSM phones work better, too.

Lose signal completely from Crestview to just before Alameda. Need to wrap up call and wait for 2 bars - 1 bar means nothing to Cingular

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Old Quad -- Serra Mall, Stanford, CA 94305 |

Verizon's reception on campus has always been iffy, but up until about six months ago, you could make and receive calls with much higher probability. I often got a signal that indicated "extended network" which means they had an agreement with other carriers. They must have dropped those agreements, since I now have zero reception in Building 120 (McClatchy Hall). When I inquire about this, however, no one at Verizon will admit anything.
