Inside the home, the reception is erratic; sometimes you get it sometimes you do not. I have waljked all over the studio trying to find the best reception are without success. I never experienced dropped call until I moved to this zip code.

The reception on this model is horrible. You can rest assured that if making or recieving calls in the area of 12th Av and East 22nd st all the way down to Park blvd your call will drop. Also, it doesn't work inside in these areas either. Most times I'm not able to use my phone until I'm actually on interstate 580 in either direction. However, it doesn't get any better once you transition onto Interstate 80 eastbound until you get to the city of Albany. From that point all the way to Vallejo it does fine.

I never have reception in our house with the Samsung phone. My husband has the Nokia and he sometimes have reception. We are still with ATT and will change by July to Verizon. I have a lot of minutes with ATT because I can't use my phone, so I'm not going to resign with them just to rollover minutes that I want to use in the first place.

There is a hill nearby with an EBMUD holding tank - a perfect place for a transmitting tower...

Works fine, but signal is always between poor and good hardly ever perfect seems like the network here, Verizon which they use is only ok.

Great coverage! Better than Sprint in the Bay. When it has no bars it still works perfectly. Some drop spots but works well in those places it works everywhere time to switch to Metro if you live in the bay.

If I stand outside on my balcony, I can usually squeeze out another bar. I'm getting really tired of dropped and unconnected calls.

Have had several Sprint phones, all had excellent reception at my home and throughout Montclair with the exception of some areas on or near Skyline Blvd. Currenly using a Treo 650 (solid reception no drops) and a Samsung A900 (solid reception) my wife has used several Sprint Samsung models all with good reception. I was given a Verizon phone for work (no signal at my home) switched models to the most expensive phone they had with allegedly good reception... still no signal at my home.

Constantly wavering zero to three bars, with frequent dropped calls. My wife and I both have LG flip phones from Verizon and experience the same lousy signal quality throughout the Upper Rockridge and Broadway Terrace neighborhoods. The dead spots get worse as you head up the Oakland hills near the Caldecott Tunnel.

As soon as I enter the "Bermuda Triangle" between Gilman street and University, I don't even try to answer or place calls, because I know I'll get dropped! I've gone through 3 phones with similar bad luck, so I don't think it's the phone.
