Consistently under 1mbps for download and upload speed. I've been running speed tests since March. I get 75mbps around Stockton, CA, and 68mbps in Los Angeles, CA, so it is not my phone. Service use to be great but now horrendous. Pretty pathetic for Silicon Valley. Paying 100% for less than 5% of service.

Near Cupertino library, 90% percent of international call var Skype or Google hangout dropped. Very poor wireless coverage, ironically it's the Hq of Apple, an area with highest expensive power.

I had Nextel which eventually turned into sprint. At the beginning ( about 3-4 years ago it was good), now I'm always on "extended network" with 1-0 bars, forget about watching a YouTube video and sometimes I need to make 4-5 calls to finish a conversation with a customer( I own a plumbing business). They keep saying "we are improving our towers, in two weeks everything will be back to normal". I've been hearing that for months now. It sounds like a company that is preparing to shut down and they are trying to stretch their short life for as long as possible, so when the are bought out, they can show they have thousands of clients and get more for their downhill going company. My contract ends the 28th of this month and I'm switching to verizon.

Terrible! Calls are always dropped after only a few seconds. And I cannot hear what the other person says - I can hear them for 1 second then followed by 4 seconds of silence. Sometime it's impossible to call out too. So frustrating! The problem is same inside my apartment or outside in the middle of the street.

Recently, calls are dropped, poor reception through Verizon. Customers say they receive a recording for my phone here in Los Altos "this call may not be connected, try again later". Very frustrating to do business in the heart of Silicon Valley and receive this type of cell coverage.

I had a 1-bar max. inside the house; most of the time, no-reception. Called services but the lure me in to buy mini-tower!Outside my house could get to 2-3 bars; that's it. not even talking about 3 / 4G. I never had that experience with T-Mobile before.

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.

Reception is horrendous. A lot of new construction going on around Valley Mall, residential AND commercial. AT&T is going to have a lot of unhappy customers new to the area if they don't improve it soon. It boggles the mind that construction for the new Apple Headquarters is going on just across Hwy. 280 and AT&T hasn't done a thing.

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.

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've had Sprint for the last decade. Although my building, solid concrete with rebar walls, is notorious for dropping calls, I so rarely have poor or dropped connections, I'm shocked when friends are visiting and can't make calls. The only time I lost all service, very inconveniently, was in the mountains, on my way to Yosemite. Their offices are convenient and their staff Tech savvy and super helpful. Im a happy camper / user.

Service was good for a long time. Things have changed since beginning of 2014. All our phones inside the home get a DOT / bar - outside may be 2. But the audio is scratchy and had to repeat several times. Checked with VZ support and did what they recommend me to do. Nothing has improved. Have been using Field Test (*3001#12345#*) and see that is at -111 or -114. Should normally observe -75 to -85 in this neighborhood. If I go couple blocks towards Kennedy school it improves and near De Anza College it is the best at -68. There is a VZ Cell tower and hence better signal and better data download speeds as well. Very disappointed with VZ, as their support informs that nothing has changed. Hard to believe. Both iPhone 5 and 5s show same symptoms. 4S is slightly better but still horrible data downloads. Verizon needs to seriously look in placing a Tower in the Apple's HQ City and its laughable they make phones but not promise the delivery of service. Huh... .

I switched to AT&T because t mobile was not working at all. After 5yrs AT&T at mt location is still poor. Missed calls and late txt messages. Switched to straighttalk, no need to pay top dollar for poor 3g service.

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.
