Verizon coverage works really well anywhere I've been in the San Jose area (usually constant 4 bars and fast download speeds), as long as I'm at least a mile north of Willow Glen. Unfortunately, I live in Willow Glen and get maybe 1 bar at best and rarely get a consistent data link, even when I'm outside.

The Sprint coverage maps for my area all say best all green, the actual is yes spotty voice coverage, spotty 3g and not 4 g even though the maps say best or great coverage. So this means Sprint is legally running a scam on all of us. All Sprint users complain but stays becuase the others Verizon and AT&T or most expensive. Sprint users are cheap or trapped in a contract. Yes me too cheap. So when Sprint raises prices on worst coverage we get stuck cuz Verizon and AT&T will raise prices as they have the undoubtedly best coverage everywhere. I know I used to use ATT and Verizon when my employers paid for my phones. Now that I pay for the phone I went with the cheapest solution. Oh well Sprint sucks everyone knows it and they are allowed to lie about the covererge. I suggest you pay more for better coverage at Verizon and ATT! Or get cheap monthly rates with worst covergage with Sprint. Theres is a reason why Sprint is cheap, poorly run company, poor services, low prices... .

The worst Carrier I have had to date. constant 1-2 bar 3g with occasional 4LTE. My house has constant dropped call and my work its constant 1-2 3gbars... .Sprint said they would be upgrading 4lte all over my area by Feb... .BS its June and my service is still a joke.

Consistent 0-1 bars for voice. 4G (not LTE) data pretty reliable, fast.

Metropcs service is frustrating. They shouldn't be allowed to use the term 4g lte it just doesn't work in the whole bay area. Dropped calls, mms are no easy task and trying to use navigation / maps is just impossible.

Originally service was 4 bars. Over the past few months the service has steadily declined. Now virtually no service. Voice 0-1 Bar. Data None. Calls dropped every three minutes. Not sure how you sell cell phone service when there is no service. Phone not the problem. Two phones, same issue, take the phones to Santa Cruz all bars, 4G service. Sprint in San Jose is dead. Stay away. Sprint needs to come out and tell people what's going on.

I just moved to San Jose from San Leandro. I thought Sprint's coverage was bad before, but now it's unusable. The voice quality at my new apartment is so bad I can't make or receive calls there. They sent me an Airave device to route calls through the internet, but that's unusable at least 90% of the time. My phone won't connect to the Airave unless I call tech support (through Skype on my laptop) and go through a tedious reset procedure. When I leave the apartment and come back, the phone won't connect again. The 4G LTE network is unusable through the whole Bay Area. The CDMA network is fast enough to stream Pandora in the car maybe 50% of the time. Looking up addresses on Google Maps is an exercise in frustration. I usually have to switch to airplane mode and switch back to get a 3G connection that works (slowly). I've decided to quit calling tech support and get out of my contract early. I just need a phone that works.

Little or no AT&T reception! Dropped calls! Can't receive calls anywhere in my home! Use to work perfectly. Something changed. What? Very expensive contract for lack of service! Hours on phone with tech people. They don't know what to do. Going to switch carriers!

I have been paying $10 4G PREMIUM FEE for 4 years. 4G HAS NEVER BEEN IN THIS AREA and it never will be. You would think 4G LTE would be in this area then? No. Even years after their 4G LTE phones were released? No. Even after all these years, 1 - 2 bars, "3G" which is actually 1X, and all I get from my complaints are "call us again in a week" after I complain.

What good is unlimited internet access if Verizon doesn't support the deivice or the service. One would think that when I went to the default Search Home Page that the message that I could change my preferances at the MS Bing Home Page wouldnt display either! But NO there it is. Displaying perfectly. Yet totally useless.

I have lived in the area for 2 years starting 2012. Verizon cell reception has always been bad, one bar at most in my home. I could however make calls when standing by a window upstairs in my house and I had the occasional dropped call. Lately, since the building of the stadium and all of the new construction I cannot make many calls and when I do get a call to go through it gets dropped multiple times and I cannot keep a connection for more than 2 minutes. Horrible. Verizon tells me it's my phone but I have had 3 different cell phones and everyone who comes over has a different cell phone and they can't make calls either.

Good voice quality, decent data, but there are times when data really sucks, especially in downtown SF. I would give them a good rating but they are too expensive, thinking about switching to T-Mobile.

I get 3G everywhere in Santa Clara near airport, and south into South San Jose. However, within 1 block of my house, it miraculously switches to 4G (where I have DSL anyway via WiFi), and up to 1 mile directly south. Seems like they have a single 4G cell tower in my area, but not at Meridian and Hamilton like the Sprint sales office was touting (all 3G there).

Terrible signal quality here on both Sprint and Virgin Mobile. Frequent dropped calls, garbled audio. 3G only works if you're standing next to an open window. Typically 1 of 6 bars (-104 dBm) indoors 2nd floor.
