Spotty reception, at best. Have to drive down to middle of Delta Rd.to get decent reception. Also no reception along Verona / Yerba Buena till EVC...

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Stevens Creek | DeAnza, Cupertino, CA 95014 |

Often had calls drop or no service at all. Most times it was on roaming. AT&T went downhill after buying Cingular. The calls dropped a lot more often, they started overbilling.45 per minute instead of.35 per minute per my contract and they started charges after 900 minutes when my contract had 1300 minutes on it. It became a monthly battle to go through my bill and call them to correct it. They usually corrected their mistakes but I got tired of having to scrutinize the bill each month so I was forced to move to Sprint.

1 to 2 bars with Sprint often dropping calls. Tried 2 different Sprint phones and had same problem. AT&T had a little better service here but they can't seem to get they really deteriorated after the Cingular merger. Sprint office looked up this area and it's in a yellow zone with 25% drop rate. I don't think any phone could work well here. Sprint reps were great and give me great service so I'm going to stick it out hoping they'll fix the area coverage.

Reception with Verizon in the Valley seems fairly consistently average. I can make / get calls most places, even inside buildings, but do get dropped calls - perhaps 1 in 10. Largest annoyance is dialling a number and waiting up to 30sec before the call is put through - perhaps 1 in 3 times. Overall slightly better than AT&T (before the merger) which I had previously and had dropped calls perhaps 1 in 4. Overall I would rate both services as poor-average. Verizon phpne choices are miserable. Perhaps time to change again.

Just moved from another state to south San Jose, CA. T-Mobile has no reception. On lucky days, I get 1 bar for a few minutes. Frustrating! I'm going to switch to Cingular (although I hope to God that they fired all AT&T wireless customer service people)

Everywhere I go I get great reception. I think I may have to switch to Verizon because of costs. Nextel is pretty expensive, especially when you have 4 lines on it. But coverage wise I get better coverage then anyone I know. In places where it is dead to all other carriers I have full reception. And I make great phone calls on just one bar of signal.

Service has been good here for years; now it is terrible. Calls take forever to establish and often drop after a few seconds. It's bad on the highways, too. Time to change carriers, I guess.

I get anywhere from 0 (zero) bars "Network Search" to 1 bar (lots of dropped calls and lots of direct to voicemail). The worst cell coverage ever, next to none at all.
