1 Out of 5 (1 star) | San Carlos, Near Jackson and Navajo, San Diego, CA 92119 |

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.

In the last 3 months - the coverage has become unmanagable - I almost NEED a land line at home now. I have the same AT&T no bars reception issues as the others - no bar IN my house, have to stand outside to get the first nub bar, then few mins in and the call drops, of course that is after 10 attempts to make the call. I called AT&T teh support - they said they have been working on the network in the Point Loma are but havent seen the improvment they hoped for and that they have an "excel" spreadsheet with the complaints. As a bonus to customers, they actually noted my account to say that I wouldnt be charged the early cancelation fee if I termed the contract and went to another carrier - Yep, thats thier solution! Now I have to find a new carrier and Ive been with them since 2000 !

I've had Cingular for a LONG time. (since late 90's) I used to have good service from it. Only ongoing issue I had was once in a while (very rarely) it would recieve a call with no ring and not deliver the notification of the missed call and (usual) corresponding vmail until a day or so later. HOWEVER, recently (last 3 months or so) it has turned HORRIBLE. So bad, that I actually stumbled on this thread while looking on the net for answers. Basically, it just drops to 0 bars of reception, for long periods of time (30 minutes to hours), and regardless of location (one minute I am at home or at a restaurant with full coverage, the next I have 0 bars and get the "No Network Coverage" when I try to make a call). I couldn't communicate with my Dad when I was late to a lunch with him. I've been cut off from conversations at night only getting coverage back the next day. (and getting their vmail) I even travelled through Houston and had it happen to me there at the airport while I was on a call: full bar to 0 bar that lasted for hours (I walked around and tried to get something, nadda). I don't like being cut off, but I also don't like people thinking I just flaked on them or snubbed them. I thought it might be my phone, though a friend who lives in Clairemont told me AT&T stinks and he has the same 0 bar issue. I'm planning on taking my phone in today to a Cingular store and finding out what is going on. If things don't resolve, I will check with my tech friends on what service to switch to.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Near Elementary School, Coronado, CA 92118 |

I have found reception to be very good in Coronado, though it seems to vary slightly between phone models. I used to get good reception on the lower level of our 2-story house, but with this current phone it consistently drops calls if I am downstairs. Upstairs and outside have always been great. Ironically, this is the first phone that I've found to be immune to the bridge's dead spot- either that or they've improved reception there.

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

Even though I get full reception, there are many times where someone tries to call me and the phone does not ring, and there is no sign of a missed call. Also, voice quality can be choppy, especially at night time.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Merrimac | Martha, San Diego, CA 92117 |

Nextel works OK inside my house near the post office, but going into the canyon at Genesse and 52 is a death zone now, use to work fine. Moraga just north of Balboa at the 4 way stop is a touchy area, usually drops, but then once in a while it stays connected.
