1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Sunnyvale Town Center | Washington, Sunnyvale, CA 94086 |

Signal is terrible, even when using a GSM 850 phone. I only put '1' bar here because I can occasionally receive a signal on my phone, but it's rarely good enough to send / receive calls or text messages. In contrast to this, just 2 miles further south in Cupertino I have a full signal, even indoors.

Reception suddenly drops to zero and calls get dropped occasionally, but 4-bar reception always comes back within a few seconds.

I just moved to the area(Sunnyvale) and have very poor reception in my home. I have to walk out to the street to receive 2 bar reception. I connacted Verizon and they say it's on my end and that their engineers have noted that the are has good coverage. Now I'm looking for another carrier.

I didn't even get to start the test. It already failed even before I started. Tried to call customer service through cell phone, did not even go through. Call drop #1, Call drop #2, Call drop #3... Oh finally... "Spring PCS - something, may I help you?" ummm... call drop #4!

Sprint PCS with a Sanyo (sorri, I don't know the exact model #) seems to do fine in my apartment. I do have dropped calls from time to time, but I never had any missed calls. I am happy with it.

I love Verizon's service, BUT I just moved into my husband's house and my reception is horrible inside the house. He gets great reception Cingular service (too bad I hate Cingular). I have very few problems anywhere else.

Most of the time I get 2 bars. But many times throughout the day, my phone will lose coverage and go into network search.
