5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | West St. | 44th St., Emeryville, CA 94608 |

Shows 4-5 most of the time at home; sometimes dipping down to 1. The other person's voice often is very choppy, and some dropped calls. Sometimes the person can not hear me. Get voicemails with no ring at times. The reception has gotten worse, it seems, lately. I am starting to give some of my clients my land-line number, even though I did not want to do this. If I call people back on my land-line, there is almost always a good connection, so I know it is not their phone or service. Service quality is erratic. Can't seem to find a consistant sweet spot in my home. Maybe it depends on the breeze. Had an LG flip-phone on Verizon many years ago, while living at this same location. I don't remember having this many problems with it, and the sound quality was better, too, I think.

AT&T (Cingular) has degraded over the last couple of years - especially since the merger. No more than 2 bars at most around this area and often, dropped calls if I even attempt to move around after I've started a call.

Inside, get 1-2 bars, dropped calls every once in a while. Work at Harbor Bay, same thing. I get better signal just about anywhere else.

The cellphone is practically unusable in or near the house. Cingular is letting me cancel my contract because they just can't get me reliable service. It's frustrating since I've already tried Sprint and T-Mobile with no luck

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | UC Campus East Side | Piedmont Between Derby and Greek Theater, Berkeley, CA 94705 |

The signal quality is notorious along this stretch when driving through the UC campus. Cuts out competely, particularly along Piedmont in the heart of campus but strength returns on either the north or south side when leaving. If people didn't whine so much about roof installation of cell antennas in Berkeley, perhaps we could also have consistent signals for emergency calls.

a ton of disconnects. my phone kept switching from the 1x tower to Ev tower which drained my battery everyday. I could not have my phone on for the whole night with out having it plugged to a charger.

No real problems roaming around Alameda and Oakland for most of the past year. Have had a few dropped calls lately though. Terrific reception in my apartment on the West End. Unlike my neighbor who has Verizon, I don't need to go outside and walk around to talk!

Just switched from Verizon to AT&T do to poor reception last month and needless to say it has bars every where I go to around here in the downtown berkeley area. Up and down university, telgraph even side streets in parts of North Berkeley by the BART it works at. Way to go AT&T.

Cingular / AT&T seems to be the only company with consistant reception on campus. It's not perfect, but what cell carrier is?!
