4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Gibbons Dr. | High St., Alameda, CA 94501 |

I had Sprint and in did not work in my house on the West End. I moved here and it didn't work here either. I noticed the real estate agent talking on my phone. She told me Verizon is the only one that works well in Alameda. I am very pleased with it. The only place it hasn't worked is inside Pagano's Hardware store. It also works great in big box stores like Costco.

Calls frequently dropped. Reception bad. Coverage varies. Some days it can be good, but there are too few of those good days.

There are weak spots all around our neighborhood. Note: I am 1 / 2 mile from downtown Berkeley. My phone usually shows 2-3 bars, but the signal improves if I'm outside. I know the weak Cingular's signal is the problem, not the phone because I travel regularly to Pasadena where I get 5 bars from the second floor of a 5 story hotel. I wish Cingular or someone would put up a cell tower in the middle of Berkeley somewhere. I read the other reviews of T-Mobile and Verizon having better signals in Berkeley and want to switch.

So far I've found that in the middle of the San Francisco Bay, Nextel sucks, Sprint Sucks, Verizon Sucks, and T-Mobile sucks.

My wife and I have different phones: me a Treo 650 and my wife a Motorola Razor. We both used to have Nokia 6000 series. We have always had no (zero) reception in this residential area. A block away at Spyglass Hill (east side), there is poor reception also. Maybe one bar only.

Even when my phone reads above average bars the reception is extremely poor.
