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.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305 |

Get good reception (3-5 bars) everywhere except for the basement of Gates and, mysteriously, the dining hall in FloMo. Have had ~1 call drop in 1.5 years. Reception seemed better before merger of AT&T with Cingular (I originally signed up with AT&T), but it's still pretty good.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Foster City Blvd.And Beach Park Blvd. | Marina Point Condo, San Mateo, CA 94404 |

I forgot to add that the Customer service said that if there were a lot of people calling in to request service in the 94404 zipcode or any other zipcode that would speed up the tower building process.

I got switched to Cingular from AT&T with very disapointing results after a couple of months. Got the siginal and the bars but dont recieve calls and can make calls 50% of the time. Use to just keep trying till I got through but that wont do you any good with cingular. I have had cells phones for 10 years. I am a contractor in SF and surrounding area. I need a new phone company regardless of the cost of broken contracts. Was thinking of Nextel

Recently relocated to Stanford area. Verizon Wireless does not have coverage on campus--cannot make calls, do not receive incoming calls, and do not dependably receive voicemail. All calls made even when there are two bars are dropped or incomplete (one party cannot hear the other). Talked to a Verizon Wireless store manager on University Avenue--he even suggested to go to Cingular if I needed to use the cell phone in Palo Alto. When a store manager of Verizon tells you to go to Cingular, you know it is a bad situation with Verizon in this area.
