Calls are often choppy or get dropped inside my home. Better outside and most other places. Getting an iphone so need to change carriers, even though I've been with T-Mobile for years.

AT&T coverage is spotty and while the talk about improving it I have yet to see things improve. Perhaps it is the curse of living on a county and town boundary. Neither political organization is willing to help a neighbor so there is a dead zone that is too darn close to the county line.

Sprint has been wonderful for the past two years I had my phone with them, all of a sudden their was no service at my house or anywhere in the back of the valley. I used to get coverage everywhere in this little town and now I never see the bars anymore. I called up Sprint one day and I get different problems from all of them; one person will tell me that their upgrading to 4g LTE and service will be disrupted. I will believe it when I see it and other people tell me we never got serive in pacifica their no towers! What? come on I had service a month ago so now for five week I have had no service at my house but they still expect me to play the bill. Sprint clams on its website its new locations for 4g has been announced but none of those locations list pacifica at all. The 4g that they even mention coming to the bay area is 4g wimax,(an old service that Sprint is still trying to provide but one two phones use that old service so what is the point). I switched from AT&T to Sprint because of it outages but this Sprint outage is worse and its not even getting fixed from what I know of, WTF?????

The NEXTEL reception on the Oracle HQ campus is excellent because NEXTEL originally installed what is now a "Sprint" tower at 100 Oracle Pkwy. more than 15 years ago. Note that Sprint is dismantling the NEXTEL (IDEN) network and it will be completely GONE by June of 2013. Finally, though they grabbed the old Nextel tower, the CDMA ("Sprint") performance in the same area is not nearly as good. NEXTEL works well, even deep inside the Oracle Pkwy. buildings. Sprint CDMA handsets get 2-3 bars of signal where an IDEN handset will have 5. I'll likely switch to Verizon if they don't fix the situation.

Cell reception ok to spotty in the street. Spotty to non-existent in homes or yards. you need to be in the middle of the street to get good enough reception to have a conversation

Many calls to AT&T have not resulted in any improvement to the service. I am looking into changing service providers.
