AT&T

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305 |

Get good reception (3-5 bars) everywhere except for the basement of Gates and, mysteriously, the dining hall in FloMo. Have had ~1 call drop in 1.5 years. Reception seemed better before merger of AT&T with Cingular (I originally signed up with AT&T), but it's still pretty good.

I forgot to add that the Customer service said that if there were a lot of people calling in to request service in the 94404 zipcode or any other zipcode that would speed up the tower building process.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Embarcadero / near 101 West Side | Saint Francis, Palo Alto, CA 94303 |

I had Cingular TDMA before, but my husband lost his phone and can not get replacement TDMA phones at the Cingular store, so we switched to Cingular GSM. We now have the Nokia 6102 and the Motorola flip phone V551. I dont know how much our problem has to do with the phone, but I am quite possitive that the problem rest a large part on the GSM service. Our calls are dropped on a regular basis now, compared to almost perfect reception with the TDMA system. Previously, I have not miss any calls for 2 years (AT&T, before and after bought out by cingular). I work in Redwood City and lost more call there than I am at home, again, no problem before. My husband has the Nokia 6102,and he also has lost calls. After reading the post, it sound like the service I currently have is just average, not below average, for the area, though less than acceptable.

I got switched to Cingular from AT&T with very disapointing results after a couple of months. Got the siginal and the bars but dont recieve calls and can make calls 50% of the time. Use to just keep trying till I got through but that wont do you any good with cingular. I have had cells phones for 10 years. I am a contractor in SF and surrounding area. I need a new phone company regardless of the cost of broken contracts. Was thinking of Nextel

If you live in Brisbane, make sure you dial *228, option 2 every month or so to update your phone. I went from no reception to 4-5 bars this week!
