1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Rose Garden / Shasta Hanchett | Meridian at West San Carlos, San Jose, CA 95126 |

We switched to AT&T from Verizon to reduce our TV contract fees. It was the worst phone decision we have made - 3-6 times the rate of call drops. As part of the switch, AT&T offered to buy our phones on the "switch to AT&T" program. It seems that they did not pay us what I thought we should have gotten - possibly debatable. When we tried to use the phones in France, they would not work - "Emergency calls only". When we switched back to Verizon, the AT&T phones would not work and we had to buy new phones.

Voice calls are good and I have no issues with texting. Data can be slow at times but it always works and loads my pages. Way better than AT&T

I moved to San Jose and have been calling AT&T since. Delayed messages incoming / outgoing, calls rolling to my voicemail instead of my phone and the worst voice quality I have ever experienced. Oh don’t get me started on dropped calls “call failed” I have purched 3 total new Apple devices with new sims and still the same issues. The data is trash too, I have to toggle on and off airplane mode at least once a day to get my unlimited data to work. Save youself time and headache and do not use AT&T. I am leaving ASAP

1 bar if I'm lucky. I live in Campbell and never would have done a contract with Sprint if I knew their service here was so poor. Abysmal. Will never use Sprint again after contract ends. STAY AWAY

Getting worse reception everywhere, the focus is not on service, just new phones and contracts that increase revenue, was getting better, but is now sliding on reception for phones

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Santa Clara, CA | Monroe Ave. Not Too Far From San Tomas Expwy, Santa Clara, CA 95051 |

Only one bar at home on both of our phones, but still good connection when driving are walking around. Have not had major connection issues unless hiking on trails in the hills to the West (many dead spots there). Sometimes lose signal from inside a 2016 Toyota RAV4, but on average adequate coverage in Silicon Valley. Note: Previously had Sprint but sometimes there was no reception at a home in Cupertino and spotty coverage elsewhere.

I would get 3 / 5 bars. So far so good. Sometimes would lose signal. Not sure what the cause is. However it is up most of the time.

Terrible reception, dropped calls every day. Most if the time I only have 1 bar. I have to go outside to get at least 2 bars and even then the calls get dropped. I'm very dissatisfied with AT&T

Basically no internet in South San Jose for Verizon. Very odd given it's a flat valley here in a large city. We have two phones, both had the same issue.

Texts can take 7-8 hours to go through. Can't make calls, "Emergency calls only" This is terrible service.
