Terrible reception both indoors and outdoors. Worst yet is that sometimes the connection is one-way, I can hear the other person, but I can't be heard on the other end. On coming back home in Sunnyvale, everything works just fine, thus precluding the possibility of my phone being the culprit.Was this review helpful to you?
Often there are no bars in or out of the house, but reception is better outside. I have never seen more than two VERY short bars in this area (Frenchman's Creek, adjacent to the fields of Nurseryman's Exchange), and I find those only by waving the phone in a figure-8 motion. Most calls longer than a minute are dropped repeatedly. My misery is compounded by AT&T's pathetically smug, incompetent, and occasionally rude customer service that keeps people like me jumping through phantom hoops trying to remember which bank refinanced my wife's home in 1979, two years before I met her--a service that also demands, repeatedly, that I produce her death certificate before they set up a family plan that requires corrections at least twice a month. I love my iPhone; I hate AT&T. The reception here rates not a D- but an F+.Was this review helpful to you?
Only get 1 bar in my home with my new Metro service. Was usually 3-4 bars with my old Sprint. Unlimited plan (Metro) is good but reception in the hills of Pacifica is POOR. I regret it and now it's too late to return the phone.Was this review helpful to you?
My wife and son have ATT. They have to move to different parts of the house to carry a conversation. I just sit at my sofa with my Sprint phone and a smug smile never losing any volume. Pisses them off. My wife is changing to Sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
Terrible coverage. Making and receiving calls is always a struggle. AT&T told me new tower being added on 11 / 28 / 10. My friend thinks San Carlos being located in a valley contributes to bad reception.Was this review helpful to you?
No service inside ever. No Sprint service outside and on rare occasions the phone might be able to roam. My brother has Verizon and he has OK service inside and no problems outside.Was this review helpful to you?
Every call drops. This is becoming worse and worse. Only one barWas this review helpful to you?
Considering I live on top of a hill with commanding views of the city, I am shocked by the poor reception on the VZW network. Oddly it's data that suffers the worst up here. It's not uncommon for me to have 4-5 bars, but only 1x and no 3G. What gives? What truly hurts is that I can see a Nextel site 500ft from my window.Was this review helpful to you?
I get perfect reception here, but when I go to Rockaway I get zero.Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T has greatly improved signal strength in Montara recently, now I get 4 / 5 bars in many places that I struggled with getting any kind of reception before :)Was this review helpful to you?
