2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | School of Infantry | BASILONE and SAN ONOFRE, Camp Pendleton, CA 92055 |

I had Cingular for over 2 years now because it was the only service that worked on base at the time. My carrier has switched to what is now called AT&T and the tower here on base is always having a system meltdown or something. I would go days without being able to use my phone on base when that happens. I live in the barracks so I am not a happy customer. How about raising the freaking bar AT&T?! I used my headmates T-Mobile phone with perfect reception while I have to tilt my phone on the window to receive text messages 20 minutes after they've sent it. When I called customer service all they had to say to me was "We've been getting calls all day about this. You're not the only one. It's part of life. Things happen." Like that makes me feel a lot better! Then he goes on saying "Well in the mean time you can go onto our website and learn more about what you can do with your phone." That's when I hung up. What's the point of learning about a freaking phone I can't use!

I generally get 1 to 2 bars on the EDGE network. internet functions slowly and is spotty, right along with the reception. I wish there were a tower in harbo!

Terrible reception at all times from home, a couple of blocks toward Cowles Mtn from here, and throughout the neighborhood. I think much cell reception is poor in this area because the towers are just over the crest of Cowles Mtn and obscured (from us) by the peak. Need a new tower on Navajo at Lake Murray Blvd! Impossible to carry on a phone conversation via the AT&T cell network from here--call quality is terrible and drops every minute or two. T-Mobile was *much* better--worked all the time from home. Unfortunately the iPhone got me, and only AT&T has the iPhone.

To the March 1 post about ATT, its not your phone, dont waste your time. Between my wife and I, we've tried about 5 different phones the past few years (3 different manufacturers), and none of that solved the problem. Its their poor service. It used to be fine 2 or 3 years ago, however, ever since Cingular started pairing with ATT the signals have gotten worse. We get a highly variable signal in San Carlos (which is up on a hill, no less, where you'd expect great reception) that ranges from zero to 2 or 3 bars at best, even standing outside in the parking lot. Our calls are dropped constantly, and we almost always have to use a land line now when talking from home as its nearly impossible to hold a conversation longer than 20 or 30 seconds, if that. In other words, our cell phones are useless for anything when at home except texting. Funny thing is, we've gotten much better reception calling in a relatively remote location like Yosemite Valley than we have in the middle of a city of a million people up on a hill! I've called Cingular / ATT at least 6 or 7 times the past couple of years and have spoken at length to their techical people as well, and nobody can solve the problem, which I keep telling them is that they simply need another tower! Here's a kicker: during one extended call to technical help (over 30 minutes long), the call got dropped 3 times! Twice the rep called me back (I said "see, I told you"), and the third time, only about 20 seconds into talking to a manager, the call got dropped again, and he never called me back... hmmm, go figure. They are always nice (at least the people I've spoken with) and will sympathize to no end, but they will string you along forever because the reality is they either cannot, or refuse, to upgrade their signals. One rep actually suggested that I work with local officials myself to get a new tower in our area! Can you believe that? Asking a customer to do their "dirty" work? You can come to your own conclusions on that one. When our contract runs out this year we're dumping ATT; I cant imagine that any other carrier would have worse signals in our area.

100% dropped calls from this location. Verizon refused to acknowledge any such problem for most of my 2 years.

I live in the Deercreek community (valley) in Alpine. The reception is fantastic! Even further down the hill, in Harbison Canyon the reception is outstanding. That being said, I believe it is more of a reflection of the phone (Motorola E815), not necessarily the Verizon service.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Cinnabar / Eastridge | Grossmont Blvd., La Mesa, CA 91941 |

I almost always drop any call coming to my house on Cinnabar. Sometimes the phone does not even ring. This is difficult for me as I work from home a lot, and need my phone. Verizon refuses to acknowledge that there is a problem. I switched from Sprint as soon as my contract was up due to same problem and same denial of problem by Sprint. This was a problem when I lived on Sunrise near the Village of La Mesa. Also when I got to my office on Mount Helix near the Brigantine. Drops every time. The worst is not being able to rely on my phone whatsoever in my home. Solution anyone?
