After struggling with dropped calls or no bars at all with AT&T, switched to T-Mobile where for two years have lost no calls. AT&T had the worst customer service saying only they would be adding towers - unsuccessful. Now I learn that AT&T is buying out T-Mobile. Now reading reviews and searching for a new carrier.

Sometimes no reception at all. Cricket claimed they were building a new repeater antenna in the area almost 12 months ago. Hasn't happened yet.

We usually see neighbors standing on the sidewalk or in the street talking on cellphones trying to get reception; our phones (AT&T) get no reception in our house or yard, so we must go into street in front of the house; often even then it drops the call. We were advised we could buy a tower from AT&T for $150 to ensure that we would always have "five bars" on our cell phone. This device would be attached to our computer. Great, except in the event of a power outage, and why should we have to pay out-of-pocket anyway?

Have over 5,000 unusable rollover minutes on my iPhone. It just doesn't work at home in Kensington. Horrible service and AT&T doesn't care. They call all the time re U-Verse but I'm terrified to switch to that! Can't wait for iPhone to come out with a Verizon model - it COULDN'T be any worse than AT&T!

AT&T is weak to non-existent in this area. There are 2 dead spots on Mountain View that *guaranteed* you will lose a call. It is bad all along Adams Avenue, including from the entrance ramp to 805 until you get almost past where 805 goes over the 8. (AT&T always says the same thing when we call "oh there is a tower down today in your area". Liars!) Used to have Verizon and they were not a whole lot better. Not sure why this area has such bad coverage!

I always have full bars, and I have never dropped a call. It is the same all over San Diego, and surrounding cities. I also get decent reception in the desert around Ocotillo Wells, which is unheard of.

I get great reception throughout San Diego. One dead zone on 94 and occasionally a weak signal. Otherwise excellent coverage.

Moved here about a year and a half ago. Never had any problems with Tmo before, until we moved here. Been with them over ten years. Signal at one bar at best. Must keep phones near window to get calls. It's been a problem for us because we get calls from over seas during late hours so we have to go outside just to talk. Will consider switching provider once contract is up. So sad because we never had this problem until now.
