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

No reception beyond a few feet from windows. Even within those few feet, most of the time the phone will ring but you can't carry on a conversation.

I get "no service" or no bars in or around my home with my new digital Motorola phone. I cannot send or receive calls. But my wife's ancient Kyocera candy bar phone will actually ring in our kitchen! Verizon tells me it's because her old phone sends out a more powerful signal than the new digital phones. Go figure. Verizon also tells me that they are *planning* to improve coverage with a new cell site in the area, but won't say when (I'll believe it when it happens).

Coverage in Mitchell Park is alright, but in my apartment across the street I have to stand in an open window to get any signal at all.

Verzizon reception on Sand Hill Rd is awful. 50% of calls are dropped or no reception at all. Going to try T-Mo and Cingular...

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Bayfair Mall, San Lorenzo, CA 94580 |

once you enter the target yea you have all 5 bars but as you get more into the store you go down to 3 den towards the back of the store you get 0- 1 bar! I have to go towards the middle of the store to make a call so it can sound clear otherwise you cant hear the person you talking to in the bak of the store and sometimes the call drops throught out the mall you get full bars some areas maybe you loose 1bar and the macys in bayfair is the same problem but not as bad you get 1bar most of the times in the inside of the store you have to go to the 2nd and 3rd floor to get better reception to get atleast 3-4 bars some parts you get 5bars the best store to go when you get better reception is kohls maybe ull loose 1bar in some parts of the store but the reception is great there. Through out the mall its moslty 5bars theres a few areas you get 4 but if your in the smaller stores you get 4-5 bars

Poor reception in this area, however once past Skyline East signal improves to good. Coming into this area you may want to finish your call or take the chance of having your call droped.
