Never had a call without it being dropped. I called customer service to complain and they told me "You signed a contract stating that there is no guarantee of coverage indoors." Not only are my calls being dropped indoors but they also get dropped outside of my house, and anywhere from 1 mile radius of my house. I filed many tickets with them in 2013 / 2014 only to call again in 2015 and them telling me that there is no record of me ever complaining to them. By far, Verizon has the poorest reception I've seen compared to other carriers and the worst customer service. I completely lost trust in them.

I have AT&T and their service sucks. I can't get more than one bar on my phone even if my apartment is right on road. They gave me a booster but that is more pathetic. I think booster is used to just show that you have full service, but actually you don't. Internet speeds are worst than 2G, I can't even open a webpage on my phone. If you don't want to pull your hair out, don't buy AT&T here.

Switched over to AT&T from T-Mobile since T-Mobile had reception problems. AT&T worked fine for a while and then we had very poor or no reception at all in the last 4 months. AT&T didn't want to rectify the problem despite multiple complaints. Moved to Sprint and its great.

Over the past month, the reception for Verizon in Palo Alto South going towards 101 to 85 South is terrible. The calls drop in 3 places! Not sure what is causing this but it is an issue when on work calls and they drop 3 times within 5 minutes.

ATT is so bad for coverage and customer service. I have had too many call drops and very poor voice quality. Signal is very bad. I realized that friends and office are calling me but no ring on my phone. Customer service is pathetic. Now I know all their standard answers. 1. Bore you asking all your identification questions repeatedly from agent 1 and then again agent 2. 2. Solution : Switch off and on your mobile and voila it should work now. If it does not work, call again Thanks

Never had any proble with Verizon in my area. I'm thinking about switch to AT&T since Verizon is too expensive. Anyone with AT&T in this area?

calls don't drop instead the other party will be barely be able to hear you. LTE has poor reception 1-2 bars. Only thing Verizon could do is provide me an option to buy 249$ extender. Better of going to ATT or T-Mobile.

I agree with the October 19 2014 review of poor AT&T coverage outside Cupertino Library. Calls drop very easily here, despite a visible cell tower on City Hall!

In Santa Clara I get dropped calls. At my home in kitchen the signal just dies. Else people who call me can't hear me. Calls drop. I am not able to dial out. Sprint used to be OK way back actually. Now I'm dumping Sprint, because when you look for a new job you can't find a new job with Sprint, since you can't talk to anyone. I've had all big 4 in the past and Verizon with AT&T were the best. $140 / month for Verizon or $90 / month for AT&T? That is the question.

Tall buildings in the area are preventing good reception in this area. More and more dense clusters of apartments in the area must have the same issue.

We changed to Verizon from AT&T to get better reception. However, Verizon is equally poor. Many dropped calls and poor connections. It seems ironic that we live in the heart of technology and can't get decent cell coverage. My contract is about up and I don't know where to go next!

Talk seems to work fine, and although I have never seen more than 2 bars, I have never had a call drop. 4G internet is sketchy at best. 1.5Mbps up and down max with frequent drops.

I actually use Virgin Mobile over the Sprint Network. Connections are ok. Texting and data are much more reliable. I'm thinking of switching over to Sprint since it worked pretty well when we went to Hawaii (Oahu and Kauai). I've had AT&T previously. They were famous for dropped calls and barely 2 bars even outside. They put up an additional tower nearby so service is improved now. Too expensive for what you get.

Drop calls partway down the street. At home have a router that was supposed to help. Sprint promised better service once their towers were upgraded but still drop calls and need router to connect at home. Drop calls on commutefrom Campbell to Redwood City. So I basically pay $90 / mo. for nothing.

Astonished at the superb reception on my LG Optimus f3 with MetroPCS in Belmont and San Mateo yesterday. My smartphone and service is very good, here in Silicon Valley, but it was even better further north on the Peninsula. Purchased my mid-range phone and unlimted prepay cards at Best Buy. But even they were not giving my choice high marks... go figure. When you have a great experience, the upgrade will be more of same.

Using an outstanding mid-range LG Optimus with a Metro PCS unlimited prepay card, and the coverage and service has far exceeded my expectations. Calls incoming and outgoing are good and never dropped. Internet speed and connection always solid and fast on this 4G LTE system. Highly recommend. Phone and prepay cards purchased at Best Buy. This betters my AT&T experience by a long shot. And yet, the above products and services get such a bad rap (even at Best Buy they gave a thumbs-down)... go figure.
