Verizon has good signal and coverage throughout the East Bay and SF. I've never really had problems with dropped calls or no signal.

I just switched to ATT / Cingular. The reception is 5 bars most of the time. Drops to 3 indoors far from windows or in the elevator. My phone has 2 bars in my basememt garage where I used to not get a signal with Verizon.

I've been using Metro PCS with a RAZR V3 all around berkeley for almost a year now and I've been very happy with the coverage around here. There is no need for a landline in my room because the reception here is almost always good. Every once in a while I'll miss a call from bad reception, but in general it works great outside and solid inside.

My metro phone worked great all over San Francisco. In my new home in Oakland it is useless. Going outside doesn't help, I have to walk several blocks. Sometimes a call comes through, but they always get dropped. My roommates Verizon works well so I'll try that. I used to have Cingular. It was terrible too. It worked great in new York City though.

I live on the 41st floor of a highrise facing the Pyramid. I get garbled reception on nearly 90% of call from anyone, whatever their location or carrier. And to make it even harder to come to terms with, T-Mobile has a sales center on the corner. They claim it's my choice of phone. Motorola phone with no identifier as to model. T-Mobile has never worked well for me living in Chicago or SF. But was great living in London.

I never have a problem with my reception anywhere from Ward St. to Montclair, although I have to admit that I rarely have phone calls that last longer than 2 or 3 minutes.
