2-3 bars in the house with antenna down. 3-4 bars with antenna up, both inside and out. Sprint coverage is much stronger in LA County, especially Long Beach. If you get Sprint, make sure you get a Sanyo phone. They have much better reception than a POS Samsung, and they're built better. Also Sanyo is what the Sprint employees use. If you like to travel to Europe, then don't even bother with Sprint, or Verizon. They both use CDMA and do not utilize SIM cards, so you can't change your Sprint phone with a SIM card because it's hard wired into the phone. Europe uses GSM, so your Sprint / Verizon phones will not be compatible...Was this review helpful to you?

There's an old AT&T tower on the NE corner of this intersecrion, now a Cingular tower. I can see this tower from my home and I get near perfect reception inside and outside the house. Overall I'm happy with Cingular in the Long Beach area, but I wish I had a different phone. All my problems can be attributed to the phone.Was this review helpful to you?
