Works, but just barely. Frequent comment: "you sound like you're under water."

The entire neighborhood between Clairemont Mesa Blvd.and Tierrasanta Blvd.borders Mission Trails Regional Park. This is a 5,800 acre dead spot just east of Interstate 15. The nearest tower is 3.5 miles to the West and is seriously overtasked. There are also several ridges between here and there. Nobody can get good reception in our house. It doesn't matter what phone or what carrier. The sidewalk in front of the house has slightly better reception but 50-80% of all calls have problems. Imagine spending 15 minutes on hold with DMV only to loose the connection half way though explaining your problem. More than one innocent cell phone was "disciplined" against the wall before we realized how inadequate our coverage was.

Terrible reception "in the shadow" of Mount Soledad. I just check on this site, and confirmed that there are no towers of any kind along my stretch of Route 5. This is odd, since we live right next to UCSD, and there is about a square mile of high density residential here. Hey Sprint!, put a tower somewhere near Route 5 and Nobel Drive.

There's word of a Sprint cell tower going up nearby( very close ). Does anybody know if having a cell tower( other carrier ) so close is going to effect: 1) current T-Mobile signal 2) phoneline signal 3) cable reception 4) Wifi signal 5) my 3rd eyeball ;-) Thanks.

Is it just me or has everyone started gettng a lot more dropped calls lately? I used to love Verizon and used to get excellent reception in my house. But now, often I'll just be standing there with 4 bars and the call will drop. I'm getting sick of it and I'm thinking about switching, but the none of the alternatives seem appealing either. Anyone have any experience with T-Mobile in this area? How about Nextel? I refused to go to Sprint or Cingular. Sprint has the WORST customer service I've ever had and Cingular / AT&T has the WORST reception.

Cingular's SD-area reception levels have been horrible as of late. All four Cingular phones receive disconnects, as well as limited reception 70% of the time. What't going on?

Since the start of 2005, the reception has gotten worse and worse. As of July / August, whenever I'm at home the person on the other end is deafened by "fax" noises. The reception, when working, is consistently 1-2 poles only. Crap. Total crap. Dear God get a new tower in Clairemont.

I love the Blackberry features and T-Mobile, however, the reception I am getting with this newly purchased phone is "on-and-off". People tell me they can't hear me and the phone sounds like it's under water. Works a little better with the headset or the wireless bluetooth, but for the most part it's hard to hear and I have to hold the earpiece with my hand (stuffing it deep into my ear) just to hear people. If I run the air conditioner in the car people say I sound like I am in a wind tunnel, and they ask me to call from a land line. Great for business! I am not sure what to do... it cost me an arm and a leg to get into this phone!

I get great service throughout the San Diego area much better than sprint, cingular, and Nextel which I have had before. Also Nokia phones give better service than Motorola phones for T-Mobile service at least from my experience.
