Absolutely terrible inside Stern Hall - some dropped calls, bad quality when it does go through, very inconsistent signal. Seems to work fine in some areas of UC Berkeley's campus, though (downtown, on Telegraph, etc.)

I rarely have issues. SF, East Bay, and Marin are all totally fine. Driving across Richmond Bridge, sometimes reception goes down as signal gets switched to a new cell. I am not being paid by AT&T to write this review, by the way. I just feel it's expensive. But I guess it is worth it, seeing reviews of other networks,

I switched from CREDO (a socially responsible company)which was ok if a bit pricey. It uses Sprint. Thought I could get a better deal with Verizon and I wanted a walk-store. But who cares about that now given the horrific service we have received. We have the dropped calls, and long periods of time when it is not available. The back of the house has not had service for a long time. Promises were made but never honored. This includes internet service in the back of the house. My daddy told me never to pay for something I did not get. Sorry Dad.

I get a lot of missed calls that say to the caller something to the affect of the subscriber is not available. It's worse with the Motorola X.

I moved from SF to Alameda in 2011 and have been with Verizon since before that. The signal in Alameda is worse than in SF but is still pretty good most of the time. Service is not good at Southshore and one little stretch of road on 8th St.near the dog park. Other than that I have no complaints. I rarely drop calls and I get Internet mostly everywhere. Still thinking about switching though. I have 4 lines on my plan and Verizon is expensive! Based on reviews for other carriers on this site though I guess you get what you pay for.
