4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Glorietta | Moraga Via (nr Rheem Blvd), Orinda, CA 94563 |

Good consistent service although my home is down in a gulch / valley area. The road is above me about 50 feet or more. Have been with them for 5 yrs different phone models and have not had any issues. ATT and Verizon do not work here. Nextel (although part of Sprint) does not work as they still do not share all towers.

Sparatic Service. Have had no service for last 12 hrs. Miserable service while in Sierras recently. Thinking about switching back to Verizon...

3G network never show up in this area. In the past 3 weeks, even no reception of phone. The call keeps dropping, even standing on the street. DO NOT use AT&T if you live in this area.

When I leave the phone alone, I got 2 - 3 bars. Signal is intermitten, but then when I browse the net I got 1 bar and the speed take forever. Signal is fake. I was thinking about adding another line for my wife and upgrade to the Evo 3D but this won't happen at all. Luckily I discover this issue. For those want to go for Sprint shound take a look at this before deciding.

We live in a particularly difficult spot for reception, in a shallow valley halfway between the Shatuck and Solano towers. I use a rooftop antenna plus repeater and service is tolerable (2 bars) in most areas of the house. I do not blame T-Mobile - Berkeley currently has only two cell phone "tower" locations. New towers are opposed by activists who oppose cell towers on principle. The Berkeley City council, hearing very little to the contrary, is compliant with this argument, and requests for new towers or antennas are rejected with the claim that no additional service is necessary.

This is a difficult service area in the Berkeley hills. AT&T service is extremely spotty and very poor when it exists at all. My Verizon tablet usually gets and holds 3 bars. I'll be switching my voice line to Verizon once my contract term is up.

Verizon coverage in house is quite good, though the 3G sometimes does not work. No phone dead zones in house, but customer service in recent months has been HORRIBLE, so I am looking around.

I will never buy AT&T and iPhone combination again. It's horrible and very poor service. Only 1 of 10 calls succeeds, but AT&T shows here is excellent signal reception area in their web page.
