Reception goes form 3G to Edge when I sit at my desk and use the iphone. Called the AT&T Service Center to so advise and they didn't seem to understand that AT&T needs to beef up their network in the SF area to accomodate all the iphone traffic on their network - the Tech blamed the poor coverage on the SIM card / iphone hardware. Duh. Seems lake the dropped calls are increasing and the 3G speed is decreasing since I upgraded to 3.0 and the 3GS was released. I swithched from Verizon to AT&T for the iphone. No doubt in my mind theat Verizon has better coverage (wish they had the foresight to make the deal with Apple rather than let it slip to AT&T).

On major city street cross road between Hwy. 880 and 580 and Alameda Country General Hospital. very poor signal... hope there is never a major emergency. Even what is considered the flatlands of Oakland, there are still Hills and Valleyies that block cell service.

Terrible reception on edge network and no 3G network to be found in my neighborhood. I am sick of constantly asking folks on the other line to repeat what they say because of ATT's terrible service.

I think about a year ago all of a sudden the reception in my house raised from no reception to full reception. Very happy now.

My reception anywhere inside my house is terrible. It's slightly better outside but not much. It's never dropped any of my calls but it has constant cut outs on words. I am looking to change carriers asap.

The reception for my 1st generation Iphone used to be great. Now after 8 months of complaining to ATT, 4 out of 5 calls in my neighborhood get dropped regardless of how many bars I have.

3 blocks from an a AT&T store, where I get all bars, I get 2-3 at the most and only 1 bar for my modem card. Where is the tower in this area? Why is reception so bad?

I can't use my mobile phone at home. Its ridiculous. ATT is terrible. I have to stand on one foot, wear an aluminum foil helmet, and have the other foot in a sink full of water. Oh, and hold my head a specific tilt. Berkeley mobile service is horrible on every carrier. I've had Verizon for years and won't go back. I tried MetroPCS, no luck. I went to ATT only because I get the phone and service paid for by work, and they all suck. What is going to happen to the residents of this hippie town when a major disaster happens and their precious landlines are melted down and the only way to get a call out is through a mobile phone?

Verizon reception has been fairly good for the last 6-years but over the last 3-days I've had little to no signal strength. Brought my phone to Verizon and it is okay. Wondering if there is a cell tower problem in the area.
