IRVINE, CA — Residents in San Bernardino County, California can now make more calls, thanks to new Verizon Wireless, the only major carrier with a 30-day network test-drive pledge that pays for calls if a customer isn't satisfied and switches to another carrier. New cell sites in Apple Valley, Fontana, Lytle Creek and San Bernardino have improved network coverage and call capacity near:

  • Apple Valley — Near intersection of Highway 18 and Central Avenue and surrounding area
  • Fontana — Along Cherry Avenue between Jurupa and Mulberry
  • Lytle Creek — Lytle Creek Canyon community
  • San Bernardino — Along Highway 18, 40th Street and Kendall Avenue and along Highway 18 and surrounding area, including California State University San Bernardino

"A school nurse needs to call a child's parent…A college student wants a ride home for the weekend…A first responder must email her team…Whatever you consider urgent, you can depend on the most reliable national wireless network thanks to our more than $35 billion investment in it in the last seven years," said John Palmer, regional president of Verizon Wireless.

The company's most reliable network claim is based on network studies performed by the real-life test men and test women throughout the country who inspire Verizon Wireless' national advertising. These engineers conduct more than 3 million voice call attempts and more than 16 million data tests annually on Verizon Wireless' and other national carriers' networks while traveling over 1 million miles annually in specially equipped, company-owned test vehicles.
