2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Alameda De Las Pulgas, Menlo Park, CA 94025 |

I'm always getting dropped calls in my house and when I'm out. I can't wait to switch to T-Mobile.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Swallowtail Court | Mission Blue, Brisbane, CA 94005 |

Sprint PCS and Nextel are the only two services I'm aware of that work on this side of the community. Reception is very good from the softball field all the way west on Mission Blue.

Terrible reception, must stand out in the front driveway to make a call. Only time I get reception inside the house is on a clear sunny day, and at most just 1 bar. Phone to phone SMS is bad up here as well and email to SMS is completely unreliable and useless. Metro phones up here will discharge their battery supply in under 1 hour due to constantly searching for the local digital cell site.

AT&T Wireless (TDMA)

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Dartmouth | San Carlos Ave., San Carlos, CA 94070 |

This phone worked fine in my house more than a year) until last week. I guess AT&T converted the TDMA tower to GSM to keep me happy - NOT!

No reception at all (both GSM and TDMA) with AT&T wireless up here in the Valle Mar area. It comes in as you get closer to the intersection of Reina del Mar and Hwy 1.

I have had Cingular, T-Mobile. AT&T (the worst), Nextel, Verizon (can you hear me? NO) and now I have Sprint PCS. Pretty much I've had a taste of all the phone carriers. So far Sprint has the BEST reception out of all of these carriers. I thought Verizon has the best network? I thought wrong... What is this "Can you hear me now?" They can hear me if I have tons of dropped calls from Verizon. AT&T? Oh man the worst. All I can say is Thank you Cingular for taking over. But all I can say is that Sprint has the best reception out of all.

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | I280 | From Daly City before Geneva Ave. Exit, Pacifica, CA 94044 |

I get drop calls whenever I pass this certain part of 280 coming from Daly City just before Geneva Ave exit. Also I have another drop calls coming from 280 and exit Hwy 1 to go to Pacifica. I think that area needs some fixing by Sprint. Other than that Sprint has good service.

Sprint has a Dead zone on interstate 280 from Daly city just before you hit Geneva Ave. Also Sprint has a deadzone coming from 280 exiting towards Highway 1 to Pacifica.
