4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Beach Park Blvd. | Foster City Blvd., San Mateo, CA 94404 |

very good reception all over foster city. In places where my old t616 from T-Mobile has no signal, this one constantly indicates about 80%+

I get good reception all around san mateo county. I had T-Mobile before and I got around 3 bars in my house. With a Sanyo phone that I had on SprintPCS before I got around 4 bars with that.

Hi, I just moved from LA to Foster city about a month back... .and I have had no signal whenever I am inside my house... but if I go outside some distance in my complex... i get between 1 and 2 bars... .but even then I have got dropped calls from outside my house... called up T-Mobile to find out whats wrong... and they told me engineers will be coming down in a week... and its been 3 weeks now... and nothing has changed... just got myself a Verizon phone yesterday... .seems to be somewhat better than tmobile... i get between 1 and 2 bars inside my house and between 3 and 4 outside... Hope this helps...

Very poor service. Idea of going totally wireless here is a fantasy. In Europe phones work everywhere. I'll not upgrade to the bells and whistles until the carriers get the basics right -- the ability to make and receive calls reliably.

There is barely any reception at all near and around the lucie stern center. Or through out Palo Alto for that Matter. Terrible. It must be a location problem since during a recent trip to atlanta georgia, I had 5 bars. everywhere. in the fox theatre, inside the biltmore hotel, it was great.

Got the phone for my parents. No complaints. They call from the 1st story of a two story home and say the reception is always flawless.

Nextel has terrible reception in this residential area of palo alto. It's decent on the road, but sometimes cuts out on the local freeways.
