4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Industrial | Piner, Santa Rosa, CA 95404 |

I get decent reception and 3g or '4g' all over santa rosa, except for my house in rincon valley, where I have full bars but only 1g or maybe 2g data connection. I believe this has to do with the terrain. As I head down rt 12 out of santa rosa, data signal disappears and then service drops out.

800 ft elevation, hilly and forested area. Signal varies from street to street, house to house. and time of day (usage) Residents take a walk to make a call, looking for a usable signal.

Up until about June 15th 2008, Larkfield didn't have very good service. The only phones that seemed get get a decent signal without significant drops was Nextel. But that seems to have changed, now I get full to near full bars in larkfield with my iphone. My parents Nokia phones, also on AT&T network, get great reception now as well.

I love my AT&T service. I get wonderful reception in my house and around town. Even going to the coast I still have service.

Indoor reception is almost non-existant. Outdoor is slightly better. I've tried different model phones with no improvement. I continually have dropped calls around town as well as poor reception in other areas of town (especially the Piner area). I got the Treo so I would have internet capability (for work), but access was SO slow it was not practical. I have been hugely disappointed with my entire Cingular experience.

Coverage in that area for the most part is still poor. It's better outside my apartment. It's like the Verizon "Can you hear me now?" I find it strange that I can stand there with FOUR bars, make a call, and during the call the signal drops and hovers between 1 and 2 bars. WTF does the signal DROP when making a call. I hate Cingular. Always have. I liked the service and customer service when it was the good old days of Pacific Bell Mobile Services. The only reason I haven't switched all these years is too many people know my cell number by heart. But now I've brought me phone number, service and money to Verizon because of better coverage, better plans and it's NOT Cingular!

Most of the houses are two stories in this area and reception is poor down stairs but outside is ok upstairs is a bit better. drops calls all the time I would say almost every time I call and around town several times a week. Verizon has just changed their policy if you make (any) changes on your phone even adding minutes or any other feature they will renue your contract for another year or two. We pay for this junk

just switched to Cingular GSM from Cingular TDMA. had major promises of no more dropped calls and better reception and coverage. the coverage since switching is FAR worse than before, and I have a dropped call at least twice a day. my phone has absolutely quit working altogether 3 times. I am on my 4th phone in 5 months. Cingular will not give me a new phone at the stores, I have to call a special number, get warranty service people, they send me a new phone and I send in the failed phone. our new slogan for Cingular in this household, which has been with Cingular (nee AT&T, nee cellular one) for almost 20 years, no kidding, is "cingular sucks". I would warn ANYONE away from cingular, and I have been a loyal customer since 1987. Verizon is MUCH better.
