4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Tulare | San Bruno, Brisbane, CA 94005 |

Located on eastern side of 'Brisbane bowl' with ATT / Cingular service and Siemens A55 phone. I almost always get 4 of 5 bars... occasionally 5 of 5. However, it took two Nokias (both Chinese), then the Siemens (German) phone to get good reception. In comparison, new T-Mobile service is horrible with 0 of 5 to MAX of 2 of 5 bars, not to mention 25% dropped call rate. Will cancel T-Mobile now after two Motorolas - the V-180 and V-300, which also are made in China.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Paseo Padre Pkwy. | Sylvester, Fremont, CA 94555 |

Very poor reception. Can't use phone for calls to business due to poor reception. Too many breaks in the conversation. Calls to friends are ok because they tolerate the drop outs. This is the third phone I've used over the years with similar results.

AT&T Wireless (TDMA)

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Ocean Colony / Hwy. 1 | Fairway Blvd., Half Moon Bay, CA 94019 |

Within the community of 1000 homes or so reception is available in 50% of the homes. But, where it works it works well, it's an all or nothing thing. The community is not flat at all and line of site to the tower is most likely the deciding factor.

Outside of house the reception is good. Inside the reception varies considerably as the phone is moved but completely usable.

Verizon

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Main Quad, Stanford, CA 94305 |

Anywhere on the Stanford campus, my reception with Verizon is atrocious. Even when I see 3 bars, I often can't place a call, and calls to me get routed to voice mail without my knowledge most of the time. Reception is also very bad on Foothill Expressway everywhere in between Stanford and Cupertino. Truly a shame, because I get very good reception at home in SOMA.

Overall have had better coverage with Verizon. Used to have Sprint. Only place where Sprint coverage was better was in one building on company campus in Sunnyvale.
