Have always had dropped calls when on Haight bus near Buchanan, but now I'm having bad reception at home in Hayes Valley - few bars, poor call signal, dropped calls. Maybe a tower is down?

Used to use iPhone with AT&T 4G LTE and it works perfect in most areas of the city - Way better than T-Mobile that many of my friends have.

Outdoor coverage within the vicinity is great. Indoor the signal is useable. I am pleased with the reception.

Had Sprint for 15 years and never really had reception problems until they switched to the LTE network. My wife and I have unlimited data and can barely use it in the City. Maps are slow if you can get them to work at all. Rarely get reliable email. About half the time we can't use online services to check bus times. Twitter barely ever loads. If I'm standing side by side with two phones from other providers I will always be the last to load anything. And it's effing expensive! Waiting out our current contract then we're done. Don't get Sprint service if you live in the City.

I moved from SF to Alameda in 2011 and have been with Verizon since before that. The signal in Alameda is worse than in SF but is still pretty good most of the time. Service is not good at Southshore and one little stretch of road on 8th St.near the dog park. Other than that I have no complaints. I rarely drop calls and I get Internet mostly everywhere. Still thinking about switching though. I have 4 lines on my plan and Verizon is expensive! Based on reviews for other carriers on this site though I guess you get what you pay for.

Bad voice connection in our own backyard, as well as front room. Even worse is the internet which cuts out multiple times per hour. 9 technicians to the house in 2 years. 9 new modems. Would never go with this company again.

Worst customer service I've ever experienced in my entire life, which is especially wonderful when dropped calls, inexplicable data drainage, and texting delays are standard and to be expected. What am I paying for again???

Went there to buy phone,and these jerks added a home phone service on my plan,i tried to return phone and they charged me 35$ restocking fee plus 35$ fee on the hm phone service..well these jerks told me that the refund that was suppose to be returned to me on my card cannot be accepted for restock fee,so I had to pay out of pocket,and with all said and dont I could not even return the phone.anyone who goes with Sprint better rethink there network sucks,there are alot better ones out there.ALSO TO ADD<<<< THERE CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM A SCALE OF 0 TO 10 I WOULD RATE THEM A 0 BECAUSE CUSTOMERS ALWAYS COMES FIRST NOT THEM.

I have had Sprint for 14 years with no problems, but suddenly this summer cannot use the phone on the first floor of my house and almost never get 5 bar reception in San Francisco. What has happened? Did they lose a tower?

I've had Sprint for 16 years. Reception has been excellent until the last 6 months or so. Now, service is horrible. I keep getting dropped calls and call failures and calls that won't even connect. I've called Sprint on this 5 times in the last 3 months. It's like everyone has said, they're working on upgrading the towers. It's frustrating. The tower I use is only 2 blocks away at Fell and Laguna. They, why is service so bad?

I have lost job interviews due to not having any cell reception at all. Not even bad, because that would give the perception that you can send texts or a call. Once I leave my area I am bombarding with 10 new messages / missed calls. I went to the store, they knowingly tell me service is bad yet they charge me the same amount where others actually can use there services. I will be switching to Verizon due to their lack of coverage and the lack of ability to facilitate the issue - I.E. "you can buy a microcell for 200" ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! how about you give me the microcell as I have been a customer for 10 years and dishing out cash to you. But no, "we cant do that, even though you pay for a service we cant provide" Overall HORRIBLE experience

Poorest reception in this area results in continually dropped calls, inability to initiate a call. Constant roaming results in drained charge within three (3) hours; requires phone to be connected to charger while at work.

Cannot send or receive calls, cannot send or receive text messages. Phone will show one or two bars and "3G " or Edge (the little circle. This has already placed me in a difficult situation, cannot imagine if it was an emergency. FYI... AT&T cellular signal works perfectly... go figure.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Church St. | 24th St., San Francisco, CA 94114 |

3G data reception around Church and 30th as well as Church and 24th has been terrible for years. Underground in BART 3G reception is good between 16th and Mission and Glen Park. Along the Market St.corridor, however, 3G can be nonexistent if there are any crowds at all at the stations and in the trains; often I lose 3G entirely there. Call Sprint to talk about this and they say they're working on fixing it. They have been saying that for years. I'm done with them.

I have found Sprint to be the most reliable but not the fastest network. I have had both ATT and Verizon and have to be at the front of the building to make a call but Sprint works no problem throughout with 3 bars. Sprint Lacks good LTE coverage everywhere.
