I moved from SF to Alameda in 2011 and have been with Verizon since before that. The signal in Alameda is worse than in SF but is still pretty good most of the time. Service is not good at Southshore and one little stretch of road on 8th St.near the dog park. Other than that I have no complaints. I rarely drop calls and I get Internet mostly everywhere. Still thinking about switching though. I have 4 lines on my plan and Verizon is expensive! Based on reviews for other carriers on this site though I guess you get what you pay for.

I can't make phone calls at my work building on Harbor Bay. :-( I get text messages but they seem to be delayed. I have to go outside if I want to call someone. Metro works better when I'm at home on Thurles Pl. Certain areas in the house doesn't work but one room facing the window usually works. I have to go outside my friends' houses on Marianas and Mangrove to make a call.

Mastick Senior Center, you can see the Cell tower on the corner of the parking lot. Roughly 25-30ft high, black with a transformer. If you can see this tower you will be getting anywhere from 14mbps to 30mbps. 4GLTE service. This upgrade was done roughly in June / July.

Something has happened to Sprint - used to be Terrible Internet but decent phone calls. Now it's all bad. Every call is dropped on Park St. For a laugh- go to the Sprint store- all the demo phones are on wifi. There is no Internet available In their own store.

In the past two months service has plummeted and went into the Sprint store and they said just call for an airave that will boost signal strength. Did this and was on the phone for 41 minutes, 15 of it on hold. In the end they said I have to pay 150 add'l plus monthly service fees to get this. They blamed the poor service on two cell towers being down and in repair as we speak. Yeah of course they would say this. SPRINT SUCKS

In the last year my reception has declined tremendously. It used to be only one room in my home that I could not use my iphone. Gradually it has gotten so bad that I need to stand at my street facing living room window to talk. Even if I shift my position slightly I am told I can no longer be heard ! What is going on???

Must sit outside to use internet, I have no idea what 4g is like, let alone 3g. Phone doesn't ring, delayed text messages, runaround from sprint, towers are out will be fixed soon. Lies. If an airplane goes over home phone drops call. They offered me a tower, but am I supposed to tote a tower around in order to have service? Impossible! Sprints the new metro :(

I have been using VIRGIN MOBILE for a year (which is not an option here, so I picked Sprint, which I understand uses the same network.) The reception in my house is horrible. Basically the phone does not work, and nearly all of my incoming calls just go straight to voicemail. Not worth the savings.
