As far as I can tell, Verizon has coverage for Solano County, but not
Yolo or Sacramento counties. They have a free-roaming agreement with
whoever does cover this area, but I've had problems with incoming calls
when roaming. (the phone doesn't ring, but then beeps to tell me I have
a missed call)

If you're mostly in Solano County or points southwest, Verizon is pretty
solid. Otherwise, I'd avoid them.
