    That's what I'm hearing. Don't know, since I have no plans to drop either of
    the carriers my family uses, but that's what I've heard from others.

    Probably it's bundled into Oakland. But in any case, John is once again
    trying to promote Cingular by mis-stating the facts about the competition's
    coverage. Verizon coverage is excellent throughout Alameda and Contra Costa
    County, including the tri-valley area. I spend a lot of time out in
    Pleasanton and Dublin, and Verizon is excellent, and I'm not just talking
    about on the freeway corridors. out in Moraga, Verizon was the _only_
    carrier that worked at all at my relative's house (not great, but it did
    work). Up at Tilden Park above Berkeley, Verizon worked fine (AMPS) but
    Cingular had no signal. I suspect that Cingular has good coverage in
    Pleasanton and Dubin since Pleasanton is where their western regional
    headquarters is located and it would be rather embarassing if they had bad
    coverage there. If only they could expand this coverage to the Silicon
    Valley, 280 corridor, peninsula, and San Francisco!

    Last time I checked, it was part of the San Francisco Bay Area, which easily
    made the top 100. ;-)

    To be precise, "Oakland" is one of the top 100 markets, and includes both
    Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Dublin is in Alameda County, and is thus
    in a top 100 market.

    Verizon's coverage in the Tri-Valley is significantly poorer than Cingular and
    ATTWS, which have the best overall coverage in this area, with Cingular having
    a small edge over ATTWS. Verizon used to be even worse than Sprint PCS, but
    is now in 3rd place overall.

    See <http://www.trivalleycvb.com/> -- Moraga and Tilden Park aren't part of
    the Tri-Valley, which is generally defined as Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin,
    and San Ramon.

    If anything that would be a legacy of the old PacBell PCS days, but there
    doesn't seem to be any real truth to that story, since coverage isn't
    noticeably different from other parts of the Bay Area.

    Cingular's coverage is generally good in those areas, albeit varying from spot
    to spot, just like other carriers.
