I've had Verizon service for many years and I cannot even recall the last time a call got dropped. While I often lose service when I get to the 2nd or 3rd level down in the parking garage, the 1st level down is consistently solid. I get coverage in elevators too. I travel all around the Bay Area (especially the peninsula and never drop calls and very rarely even notice any drop in signal strength. Same for when I travel nationwide. I am being forced to switch to Sprint due to job change and am not happy about it!

Never have above 1 bar service, calls don't come in or are dropped frequently. Internet so slow to open I give up after 5 minutes of scrolling! Terrible signal strength!

I have plenty of bars but my calls are constantly dropped. People call me and it doesn't go through. I call out and the recipient complains about the connection. It's gotten intolerable and it is not just in the financial district. It happen anywhere.

Can't send texts or pix at all. Always get a message failed notice. Calls are fair but usually dropped at least once or twice.

We have one bar for a 1 / 4 mile around Crab Cove. Maybe if there was a Verizon park in Alameda, we could enjoy our outdoor time better.

We spent a week in SF in January, 2017. The vast majority of time, we were getting 4 or 5 bars for LTE reception. The only exceptions were in Lands End Park and in some small pockets.
